Boku Slots enjoy a NetEnt creation, but we were surprisingly taken with their space themed slot game Elements the Awakening. The intricate design and graphics which are based on the elements Earth, Air, Fire and Water, have the look of a console role playing game. This kind of quality design isn’t always something online slot fans get to see.
Elements the Awakening is a 5-reel 20 fixed pay line slot game, which offers a high RTP of 96% something we’ve come to expect from NetEnt games. All your symbols are space related and based on the four elements including glowing orbs and space rocks. On top of that this is also a free fall game, meaning your reels don’t spin in the traditional sense. The symbols fall onto the screen with any winning combinations being removed and new symbols being dropped into their place. This can lead to multiple wins, simply from one paid spin!
Bet Amounts – Betting begins at 20p per spin with your coin value set at 0.01p and coin level also at 1. As with most Net Ent games this is adjustable throughout, so you can increase the coin level and value to suit your balance and deposit needs. The max bet available is at coin value 0.50p and coin level 10 making it a total of £100 per spin. Always make sure you have adjusted your bet amount to what you want, before hitting spin.
Wild Symbol – Your wild symbol on Elements the Awakening is a very ethereal looking metallic cube that seems to almost hang in mid-air. In the base game the wild will only appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, however they will substitute for all other symbols when they do land.
Avalanche Meter – This is your multiplier during the base game. Every time a fall completes a winning combination it is removed from the screen and your avalanche meter will increase by one step, for each fall win that is completed. When the meter is filled meaning 4 or more avalanches have been completed, the free falls feature will be triggered.
Energy Meter – The energy meter is split into four sections, one for each leading element of earth, fire, air and water. Your energy meter fills during the base game and whatever section is the fullest when the free falls feature is triggered, will dictate which free fall mode you enter.
Free Falls Feature – There are four modes for the free falls feature and each one offers 10 falls for the player. There are four wild modes enabled during this feature, Fire Storm, Earth Storm, Water Storm and Air Storm.
- Fire Storm wild – The wild appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 and can expand to reels 1 and 5. Fire storm wilds will transform any 2 connecting symbols into wilds to make bigger winning combinations.
- Earth Storm wild – The wild will only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 and are sticky wilds when they land on a reel. They will remain in place until they have been made part of a winning combination in 3 avalanches, or until there are no more wins available.
- Water Storm wild – Again this wild will only land on reels 2, 3 and 4, but it is an expanding wild. It will expand to cover the whole column that it has landed on and will transform all the symbols into wilds to complete any winning combinations,
- Air Storm wild – During this mode, 2 air storm wild symbols will fall randomly onto the reels. They will remain on the reels for the duration of the feature completing any winning combinations. However, after each fall is completed the wild will move to an adjacent spot on the reels and will continue in this manner until the falls are all completed.
It’s very rare that we online slot fans get such quality graphics and game play, so when we do we relish it in. Not only did Elements the Awakening have us at the edge of our seats but we probably ended up playing a little longer than we had intended. The game itself is great but add into it the awesome video clips when the free falls feature is triggered and you’ll be eager for more. NetEnt have outdone themselves with this one and we dare you to not enjoy it.
