  1. Hit It Big Slot Review – ELK Studios

ELK Studios has announced a new slot to add to their collection after recent success with ‘Ecuador Gold,’ the provider has been underrated for a long time but after their Ecuador Gold release the community has been talking about them again, and I have been excited about their 2019 creations. Their new slot titled ‘Hit It Big‘ and it will be released ‘April 9th‘ on all sites. Find out more in our Hit It Big slot review!

Hit It Big Slot Review Overview

This slot has a vibrant retro theme which reminds me of ‘Jamming Jars‘ released by another provider by the name of Push Gaming. Nothing is going on in the background. Only a plain background with colour changing effects, all the attention is on the slot itself. This is not necessarily bad, but maybe some more flashiness would have been sweet.

The setup is 5 reels by three rows which includes five pay lines, accompanied with a set RTP of 95% and bet stakes of £0.20 – £100.00. This slot has medium volatility with a max win of 2500x, plus it is rated 9/10 for volatility by ELK Studios themselves.

Hit It Big Slot Review Symbols And Paytable

This slot has 9 symbols in total which includes 3 low paying symbols represented by, single green bars, double blue bars, and triple red bars. There are also 4 high paying symbols represented by green sevens, blue sevens, red sevens, and triple gold sevens. There is also a wild crown symbol which can be locked in place in a feature and a hit it big logo scatter symbol for the bonus feature.

Hit It Big Slot Review Features And Bonus Feature

In the bonus, you will benefit from a feature titled ‘Reel Game,’ above and below reels are vibrant coloured feature artwork. These are randomised every spin with different elements if any of these symbol artworks matchup between both lower and upper of the reels. When this happens that feature is activated, features available in the base game are;

  • Respin – Respins all reels.
  • Stacked Wilds – Reel which activated feature will be fully stacked with wilds for current spin.
  • Locked Wilds – Reels 1 and five are stacked with wilds while being locked in place, while other reels spin.
  • Multipliers – Multipliers of 2x-50x awarded for pay line.

There is also a bonus feature which is triggered by landing 3 scatter symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4. This will activate the bonus feature which is not the usual free spins, instead of an essential picking feature seen before many times. This feature has 3 different levels, on the board displayed above reels you need to make your way to the hit it big symbol in the middle.

You will need to stop the marker from moving where it will eventually end on a mark on the board; you can land on bet multipliers, arrows to help you progress or make your journey more difficult and object prizes. Of course, you do not want to land on the bandit symbol. This will end your bonus feature. When you hit the outwards arrows you will be lowered a level with lower cash prizes. If you hit arrows inwards you will upgrade a level, and cash prizes will be increased. Once you reach the highest level you can win the top prize. In this scenario, you are given 1 spin where you can win a guaranteed 100x and top 1000x.


Overall, this slot is unique from ELK Studios, and the bonus feature plays like a game show. The base game is fun with different features to benefit from and has some significant volatility. The bonus feature is simple once played a couple of times, but it is difficult to reach the top level for the best cash prizes.

I look forward to ELK’s future slot creations. Remember to check out our Twitch stream where I’ll definitely be playing this game. And of course, feel free to discuss it with me as well.
