Have you always dreamt about enjoying the jet-setting DJ lifestyle playing in the world's best clubs? Can you see yourself travelling from Miami to Rio, and Berlin to Ibiza in order to spin some bangin’ tunes and get the party started?
It’s nice to have a fantasy, but often the reality is a lot different. Enjoying parties in different continents is a rather expensive pastime, and not many of us can say we’ve got the cash to take us to where we want to be.
But that could all change courtesy of DJ Wild, the colourful slot game from ELK Studios. With a top prize of 170,000 coins up for grabs, you could win some big prizes to put towards your travel expenses when booking the trip of a lifetime.
ELK are a relative newcomer to online slot gaming, but this is a development team that is clearly making waves across the industry nonetheless. They’ve made a statement with DJ Wild, with its vibrant graphics and neon colourway adding a contemporary look and feel; an area in which many slot titles are let down.
The action on your reels is accompanied by a trance soundtrack, but don’t be alarmed – it is fairly mellow and won’t ruin your gaming experience (you can always hit that mute button if you’re more of a Bob Dylan aficionado!).
There are five reels on your gameboard and a total of 20 paylines – that’s 10 that offer “wins both ways”, so from left to right and right to left.
DJ Wild utilises the standard format of slot gaming – face, character and special symbols – to ensure that the wins on offer are lucrative and that each spin of the reels offers plenty of potential.
The face symbols are a variety of fruits that will keep your strength up and keep you dancing/spinning the reels into the small hours of the morning. All wins are dependent on your bet amount of course, with the figures below based on a 100-coin bet.
The Cherries are first up, and these earn 20 coins for matching three, 60 coins for four and 80 coins for five. The Lemons then pay 40 coins, 60 coins and 80 coins for spinning three, four and five respectively.
Then we have a juicy pair at our disposal – the Melons and the Plums – and these deliver 60 coins for a treble, 80 coins for a quadruple and 100 coins if you are lucky enough to get your five a day.
Then we’re into the character symbols, and these pay in the following denominations:
There is a wild symbol here too, and appropriately it’s the DJ Wild. When this appears it will substitute for all other symbols and expand on your reel. As if that wasn’t enough it even triggers a respin, which can be re-triggered with each additional wild revealed. More DJ Wilds are added to reels 1, 2,4 and 5 with each respin.
The DJ Wild can be randomly replaced with the tools of the DJ’s trade: Smoke, Fire, Confetti, Strobe and Lazer Wilds. The Smoke, Fire and Confetti Wilds expand vertically on any reel to cover three positions, while the Strobe and Lazer expand horizontally to the right to cover two positions.
If reels 1, 2, 4 and 5 are covered with wilds then the huge Jackpot Wild is added to reel 3 on the last respin; giving you the chance to win an enormous jackpot kitty!
Tired of setting your bet amount for each and every spin? Manual wagering can be a thing of the past thanks to the Betting Strategies function. This helps players to create their own wagering requirements. You can choose from Optimizer (a set % of your balance), Leveller (raises after five consecutive losses), Booster (raises on each loss) or Jumper (raises with each win).
So that’s DJ Wild, the party-starting slot title from ELK. There are plenty of prizes to get your heartbeat racing in the main game, and that wilds feature – despite a lack of free spins – offers plenty of potential with its expanding symbols. You’ll be hitting the floor for all the right reasons if you scoop the jackpot here.
