About Visitors Slot
In the crazy world of online slots there are a few studios whose games we always love to review because we never know quite what to expect. Developers like Thunderkick and Yggdrasil for example always give you something zany with mad themes and narratives mixed with clever gameplay and features. And another one in that group is ELK whose frankly bonkers back catalogue takes in games like the heist-themed Lake’s Five, the crazy jungle-themed Platooners and the excellent Gold-series featuring the intrepid Kane. Always visually striking and rich in entertainment, ELK rarely let us down. And indeed it looks like they’ve done it again with this madcap alien-invasion slot called Visitors.
The plot takes place in a small town in the Midwest of America (probably) – the kind of place where alien abductions are always taking place! It uses 5 reels and 3,125 pay lines and mixes up expanding
wilds, multiplier re-spins, sticky wilds and free spins with multipliers to create potentially thrilling win sequences when luck is on your side.
Theme Symbols and Paytables
The weird cartoon graphics of this slot are eye-catching, depicting a rural idyll about to be picked off by some strange looking creatures from a distant galaxy. There are five reels and five rows in play at all times and an impressive 3,125 payline which trigger when filled with between 3 and 5 identical symbols on the same spin. Low-value symbols are made up of the cards 10 through to Ace, whilst premiums are in the form of coloured houses. The top paying symbol is the red house, worth 15x for 5 matching symbols.
Lookout as well for the flaming wild that subs for all others to create win lines, and the re-spins alien symbols and alien spacecraft that are key to unlocking features. More on this in a moment.
RTP, Variance, Payouts and Stake Limits
ELK Studios have produced a few decent high variance titles in the past but this one doesn’t reach the dizzying heights of other slots on the market right now. Instead, it comes in at between medium and high volatility, so not one for casual players and still a tough nut to crack, but not on the scale of the best Megways™ for example. The RTP is a decent 96.1% and the top payout is 10,000x. Of course, it will be very rare for any player to get even close to that figure, but it gives you an idea of what can happen if the gods are on your side!
Gameplay and Features
Visitors Slot has a nice set of features to keep things entertaining and it’s rare to see a dry run of many plays before something happens. ELK have mixed up the in-vogue multiplier and free spins combination to good effect and added in expanding symbols too. Here’s how it all works:
Alien re-spins symbols come in 3 colors – green, yellow and pink. You need two to land at the same time on reels 1 and 5 to trigger these features:
- Big o Beam – winning symbols expand to colossal 2×2 or 3×3 and stick for a re-spin.
- Abduction – up to 15x multipliers applied to your re-spin wins.
- Alien Attack – sticky wilds on the reels for your re-spins.
You’ll need to land 3 alien spaceships to trigger the free spins round. Here a new mini reel set opens up with 25 reels and only silver and gold spaceships in play. Players start with 5 spins but can add one more for every silver spaceship that lands. This also doubles up your current multiplier. The multipliers appear in a wall around the mini reel set and if at any point you land the special golden spacecraft then all multipliers double again.
It is possible to keep driving up the multiplier to a massive 4,096x, but you’ll need to land a lot of consecutive silver and gold spacecraft to do so. If you can hit that peak then the top payout of 10,000x becomes achievable.
This is a classic ELK Studios slot, full of fun and ready to deliver big on payouts to anyone brave enough to take it on. The re-spins feature keeps things interesting in the base game and can give you a fair win if you get lucky with the 15x multiplier. Then into the bonus round, there is much more to play for. You’ll need to get a really lucky run in on silver and gold to get a big win but it is possible. Above all, though this is a really entertaining slot that promises to be a good play. So have fun, and gamble responsibly.
