Take the adventure of your life in the new Ecuador Gold online slot from Elk Studios where big prizes and fantastic payout opportunities await. Inspired by the Mayan civilization of South America, this adventure-themed slot machine will let you dig through ancient artefacts to uncover payouts of up to 250,000 coins per spin. With its mobile optimized design, base 4,096 bet ways, and 96.1% RTP, Ecuador Gold is already an attractive high-variance machine. But trigger more than one win and you’ll see the full potential of the slot as the screen expands to give you a colossal 262,144 ways to win!
For giving you at least 4,096 different ways to win a prize in every round, the Ecuador Gold slot charges a fixed bet of 100 coins per spin. If you choose the minimum coin size (0.002 credits), you’ll get to spend only 0.20 credits per round and enjoy the lowest payouts in the game. Naturally, much bigger coin sizes are also available, up to 1 credit per coin (100 credits bet).
Since the Ecuador Gold online slot doesn’t use traditional paylines, triggering prizes will be easier to do. To get paid, you’ll need to collect at least three identical symbols on three or more adjacent reels, beginning with the first reel on your left.
The symbols are split into two groups, one containing eight stone symbols and the other golden artefacts and an explorer symbol. The stone symbols offer you the smaller wins, which start at 10 coins and go up to 80 coins per sequence. The other group pays way better, giving you minimum prizes of 100 coins and a max win of 300 coins per sequence. And thanks to the special avalanche mechanics, you’ll get more than enough opportunities to collect any of these payouts.
Once you start playing with real money, you can expect more than a few extras from the slot that’ll help you bank some big wins. Firstly, any of the symbols on your screen can appear in a single form but also as 2×2, 3×3, and 4×4 symbols that can trigger bigger prizes more easily. Secondly, the game is also equipped with special ghosting wild symbols which move a random number of positions, leaving new wild symbols behind. And finally, you also have the special avalanche mechanics, which are, hands down, the most attractive Ecuador Gold bonus features you’ll get.
The avalanche mechanics explode winning symbols from your screen to replace them with new ones that fall from above. These mechanics also add new rows of symbols for every win, allowing you to increase your reels and enjoy plenty more ways to win. For each consecutive win you trigger, the slot will gradually increase your screen to create up to 8 rows of symbols and 262,144 different ways to win!
The avalanche mechanics are also available in the free spins bonus game, which you can win by collecting some of the Ecuador Gold bonus scatter symbols. For every three-six BONUS symbols you collect, the slot will give you 10-25 free spins which will be played with a special safety bonus feature. This feature allows you to create active safety levels after the screen expands so that you can return to your next free spin with more ways to win.
The Ecuador Gold online slot is one of the most exciting games from Elk Studios to have hit the online market, and for a number of reasons. Apart from featuring broad betting limits and a solid 96.1% RTP, which will speak to any casino player in India, this game also offers tons of payout opportunities during every round you play. Trigger multiple wins and see your chances increase massively with a huge 262,144 ways to win, paving the way to that 250,000 coins jackpot. But beware of the high-variance as it can end up giving you some very risky sessions.
