Cluster Slide Slot Review – ELK Studios
It has been nearly a month since I last reviewed an ELK Studios slot release. Which was for the game ‘Bompers’, which has a max win of 5,000x and a range of fun features. Today we are learning all about ‘Cluster Slide’, set to release April 6th across all sites.
This slot takes us to planet Jellyton, which has monsters of fur and jelly. Which also appear as premium and low-paying symbols on the paytable. The slot background shows the planet with other colourful planets in the sky, stars, and an outer space terrain. I love the unique art style for this game and theme choice.
Cluster Slide has a setup of 7 reels by 8 rows, this includes cluster pays of 5 or more matching symbols. This slot is high variance with a set RTP of 96% and max win capped at 10,000x. You can bet from £0.20 – £100.
Cluster Slide Pay Table & Symbols
There are 10 symbols in total, this includes 4 low-paying symbols. These are represented by green, purple, orange, and red jelly cubes. There are also 4 premium symbols, these are represented by green, purple, orange, and red monsters with coloured fur. In addition to these regular symbols is bonus scatter and wild symbols. The highest paying symbol is the red furry premium, which pays 500x for a cluster of 15+. Wilds substitute for all symbols except scatter symbols.
Cluster Slide Features
All winning symbols contribute to filling the Generator which awards feature wild symbols. Winning clusters of 5 or more matching symbols are removed with an Avalanche occurring. New symbols will fall in place to fill empty positions on the reel set. Generating 5 feature wild symbols during a game round adds an x5 multiplier to the total multiplier which applies to all winning clusters.
There are 5 different wild symbols, each with a unique feature that is activated when the symbol is part of a winning cluster. These feature wilds are;
Big – Expands a random symbol to a 2×2 symbol.
Random – Replaces 2 – 4 symbols with wild symbols.
Multiplier – increases the multiplier by 1.
Upgrading – Upgrades all occurrences of a random symbol type to a higher valued symbol.
Removing – Removes all occurrences of a random symbol type from the grid.
Landing 3 or more bonus symbols during a base game spin will trigger the Wild Drops Bonus Game. The first drop turns all bonus symbols on the grid into wild symbols and adds 3 1×1 wild symbols. The second drop adds two 2×2 wild symbols and the third drop adds one 3×3 wild symbol to the grid.
Overall, I think this slot is well made by the studio and shows off new exciting mechanics. With a max win of 10,000x and wilds up to 3×3 in size. Be sure to try out the game for yourself on release. Check out our exclusive casino offers.
