Elements is a new slot game powered by Net Entertainment based on a futuristic theme with creatures that are out of this world. It starts with a short introductory video that points out the elements and their role in the game. The graphic is breath taking and has the wow factor. An important characteristic is the fall that replaces the traditional spins. Its purpose is to grant access to great features and bonuses.
The layout is simple, with 5-reels and 20-paylines. The symbols are fully animated and include the four elements: fire, earth, water and air, that explode when you get a winning combination. The sound effects are perfectly combined with the interactive avatars. The coin sizes range from $0.01 to $0.50.
The minimum bet is $0.20, while the maximum is $100. An interesting aspect of this game is the auto play mode. It allows you to select various aspects, like the number of spins, when to stop, the winnings and even the free falls.
The Avalanche meter is located at the bottom of the game. Each successful spin lights up a certain part. The colors displayed match the main elements of the round. The Energy meter is divided into four parts, each for a certain element. When you manage to light up all four parts, you trigger the Free Fall feature. The colors displayed match a certain element, providing valuable data regarding which feature will be activated.
The Free fall feature is activated when you get four or more Avalanches in a row. It grants access to 10 free spins and different wilds.
There are 4 wild symbols in this game. They can appear on any reel, except for the first one. Their property is to substitute any other symbol, except for the scatter one and to guarantee the highest paylines.
The Fire Storm Wild generally appears on the reels 2, 3 and 4, but it can expand on all the columns. It can spread in any direction, and it can turn other symbols into wilds. The Air Storm Wild is triggered when the Free Fall feature is activated. It remains on the screen for the whole process, moving its place after each spin.
The Earth Storm Wild can only appear on the reels 2, 3 and 4. Once it is triggered it remains on the screen until the free fall feature ends, or you get a winning payline. The Water Storm Wild has the property to expend on the whole reel, thus it can visibly increase the earnings.
Elements is indeed a spectacular game. The theme and graphics are not something that you see every day. The sound is really relaxing and mimics different animals. I really like the way the elements fall, and they seem like floating, giving an authentic look. It is not very hard to hit the free spin feature, and the four wilds are incredible.
