Hit It Hard Slot Review – ELK Studios

ELK Studios has really grown in the last few years. This is thanks to their huge success with the GOLD series, which includes ‘Tahiti Gold’, ‘Ecuador Gold’ and ‘Voodoo Gold’. There is another popular game series created by ELK Studios. This game series is the classic series, which has over 5 games and includes ‘Win-Win’. The studio has decided to add a new addition to the classic series. This game is titled ‘Hit It Hard‘, set to release 21st January.

Hit It Hard is part of the classic game series, which means the theme and visuals will be simple. Simple games seem to not be as popular but some players prefer simple over Megaways for example. The background is a simple patterned image, with the reel set central. The reel set looks like a real land-based slot, with 3 reels, and above the reel set is the bonus feature. Overall, visuals suit the theme well.

This game has a setup of 3 reels by 3 rows, this includes 5 set pay lines. Hit It Hard is a medium variance game due to the set RTP of 96.3% and max win capped at 2,500x. You can bet from £0.20 – £100.

Hit It Hard Symbols & Paytable

Hit It Hard has 11 symbols in total, this includes 6 low paying symbols. These are represented by cherries, lemons, watermelons, green bars, blue bars, and red bars. There are also 3 premium symbols, these are represented by green, blue and red sevens. In addition to these paying symbols are a dice bonus symbol and multiplier wild symbols. The highest paying symbol is red sevens premium, this symbol pays 50x for 3 across a pay line.

The dice scatter symbol only appears on reel 3 and multiplier wilds appear on reel 3. If no win occurs a respin will happen and the wild will stick.

Hit It Hard Features

The main attraction is the board, you get to the board by landing a dice symbol in the middle of reel 3. This symbol will turn into a 10x wild multiplier. The board has 23 spaces and each space is a kind of mini-game. These mini-games are;

  • Wilds – Stacked wilds on reel 2, then reel 3 and then on both reels for spins.
  • Wild 10 Spins – 10 spins with multiplier wilds, guaranteed wild on reel 3.
  • Quantum Leap – Leap around the board.
  • Power Run – Awards every feature you pass on a move.
  • Lucky Ballz – Pachinko game awards 4 shots with guaranteed wins.
  • Super Ballz – Pachinko game awards unlimited shots until hitting the same win amount basket for a second time.
  • The Key – Collect a key.
  • The Vault – Land with two collected keys to break the bank for maximum win.


Overall, the game is very simple and shows nothing new. The bonus feature is similar to another ELK Studios release, the max win of 2,500x is okay but could be better. The game could appeal to some casino players. Be sure to try the game for yourself and check out our exclusive casino offers.
