Elementals Slot Review

Stan Lee and Marvel might have something to say if looking at this slot game. There’s a big orange character that looks just like The Thing from the Fantastic Four and the female symbol isn’t a million miles from The Invisible Woman. Well this isn’t about a group of heroes who defeat everyone apart from the poor editors of their movie. It’s actually a look at the four elements that were described by Paracelsus in the 16th century (thanks Wikipedia).

It’s another slot from Microgaming who have been producing some excellent games for online casinos for nearly two decades. ‘Elementals’ is a five reel game that has a total of 20 paylines and it actually looks pretty good. The symbols in the game are a mixture of those related to the theme and those that clearly aren’t. We have that Thing look-a-like who is actually called Gnome (I’d change that name I think), there’s also Undine, spirit of water, Sylph, spirit of wind (no not that sort) and Salamandar who’s the spirit of fire. We also get five fruit symbols as the lesser values which is a change from the usual playing cards.

The cost of playing ‘Elementals’ ranges from £0.01 to £100 if selecting the 50p stake for all 20 paylines and playing five coins on each of the lines. That’s a wide range and you should have no problem finding a level that’s going to fit in with your financial budget.

The wild symbol is a rather colourful symbol that just says ‘Wild.’ This is handy though as it substitutes for all symbols aside from the scatters. It’ll help you get some winning combinations and when this does happen those wins get doubled.

There’s a scatter symbol that is a crystal ball and if you can get five of this it pays 200x your stake. Also there’s a sunny ‘E’ symbol that helps trigger the bonus game, more of which in a moment.

Playing the game is pretty easy. There’s a regular and expert mode, the only real difference being the ability to set some autoplays in expert mode. All the info you need for this game is in the paytable so make sure you give that a good look as it’s always best to know as much about the game before risking your cash. Some free games might help too.

Bonus Games

If you can get the big ‘E’ sunny scatter symbol anywhere on reels one or five then this triggers the free spins round. You get a fair amount to play with, 20 in fact and even better news is the fact that all winnings during the free spins round are doubled. That good news keeps on coming because you can retrigger the free spins if those scatters make another appearance.


An entertaining game that has a good bonus game. 20 free spins is quite generous and if you can retrigger those free spins the wins really will rack up.
