Written and facts checked by Rudra Chowdhury, Videoslot specialist on June 30th of 2022.
It takes a special kind of talent to make a slot about nature’s four elements that we see every day. And even more skill to make them all appear as great as this slot does! The background image is very basic, but looks quite stunning. But the fluid animations, and the symbol designs for each element is what truly makes this theme feel alive.
The soundtrack is rather peaceful and serene, but it does pick up slightly after wins start rolling in. Elements: the Awakening’s RTP is 96.02%, which is the current average. Special feature continues to be quite impressive, regardless of age. The avalanche system, an elements meter, and four different free spins await the very best players. And with the aid of these elemental bonuses, you have a shot at winning the 1500x jackpot.
We fell in love with both the graphics and the gameplay of this NetEnt release. It has a good maximum prize, a decent RTP, and numerous special features that will boost your prizes. Paired with beautiful visuals and gorgeous animations, this game has left quite the impression on us. We wholeheartedly recommend Elements: the Awakening to anyone who’s interested in it.
The volatility of this slot ranges between low and medium. With the Avalanche bonus and the elements meter, we would have preferred for this game to be completely low variance. It would have meant players were able to more frequently trigger special features.
Coins range between ₹1.00 up to ₹50.00 for each spin. By changing their bet level and coin value, gamblers are able to set their total bet to their liking! You can play for as little as ₹20, or as much as ₹1000 per spin. This is a great betting spread, one that will please each type of player.
As we already mentioned, icon designs were truly what won us over. Each element has a basic version, and an animal-like, living version. The four living elements will perform small animations even while you’re just idling on the screen. Keep a look out for the fire elemental, as his five-of-a-kind win earns you 1500x your total stake!
Avalanche: When a winning combination appears on the playing field, the symbols that were part of it disappear. Existing icons will take their place, while brand new ones occupy the empty position on top of the reels.
Avalanche meter: Using the Avalanche bonus, it is possible to chain multiple wins together with a single spin. The game clearly wants you to do that, as it keeps track of how many chained wins you completed with the Avalanche Meter. It tracks a maximum of four Avalanches – after that, it activates free spins.
Energy meter: Each win will have a ‘dominant’ element, which is used during free spins. After each win, the energy meter fills up with all the colours that participated in forming the prize. The dominant element will fill the entirety of its side of the Meter.
Free Falls: After collecting four or more Avalanche special features, players win ten free spins. Which type of free spins you play is determined by what the dominant element was when the bonus was triggered. There are four in total, and they include:
The theme is certainly unique, and the top-notch graphics only enhance it further. The animations are fluid and continuous. They happen even while idling, and separate ones play when you win. Combined with a gorgeous background image, you’re in for a real treat.
Gameplay revolves around chaining multiple Avalanches together, and hoping you win big on the free spins afterwards. We do wish you could pick your favourite element, but sadly, it is always decided by chance.
