Bloopers House Review
Many of us can only dream of walking down the red carpet at a Hollywood event. Well that dream is about to come true for those of you who will play Elk Studios’ Bloopers! But the difference with this red carpet experience is that you get to witness all the bloopers made by the Bloopers – the members of the crew – while filming a movie!
These Bloopers can make your day in this game, because they are the ones that offer you the chance of winning as much as 1,850x your bet! So, learn about them through our review before you go play with them.
Elk Studios is known to create innovative games, but the good thing is that gameplay is pretty straightforward. But you need to pay attention to the kind of betting strategy you employ in this game. You can choose to play the traditional way and simply click on one of the 12 betting amounts and start the game.
You can also try one of the 4 pre-set betting conditions offered by the developer. You can opt for the Leveller, the Optimizer or the Booster. Each has their pluses and minuses, so think carefully before you pick one of them.
Another thing to remember while setting your bets is that this is a high-volatility game with an RTP of 96.10%. This means that you can win some hefty amounts of cash in this game, but there will be times when you will not win anything at all. Therefore, the best strategy to adopt in this game is to bet low so that you can get in as many spins as possible.
After setting your bets, you can click on Spin to begin your Hollywood experience. To win at this game, you need to land 3, 4 or 5 of the same symbol along a payline. The more symbols of a kind that you land, the higher your payout will be. Of course, if you land the higher-value symbols (the Movie Reel, the Clapperboard, the Actress or the Actor) you will win more than you will if you land the lower-value symbols (the 10, J, K, Q and A).
But to snag those super big wins, you need to trigger the bonus features.
Additional Game Features
The bonus features in this game are so much fun that you will want to trigger them as frequently as possible!
- Bloopers Logo Wild
The Bloopers logo is the Wild and it can replace any other symbol on the reelscape, but not the Scatter (the Hollywood Star). When this symbol lands on the reels, you have a better chance of getting a winning combination.
- Hollywood Star Scatter
The Hollywood Star symbol is the Scatter and when you land 3, 4 or even 5 of these symbols on the reels, you will activate the Free Spins Bonus Feature.
- Movie Star Sticky Wilds
Once you have activated the Free Spins Bonus feature, the highest value symbols, the Actor and the Actress become Sticky Wilds – but only on reels 2, 3 and 4. In the first free spin, either the Actress or the Actor will be chosen as the Sticky Wild. The free spins will continue if you land more Sticky Wilds in the middle reels. The feature will stop only if you stop landing these Wilds or all three reels are filled up with Wilds.
- Blooper Mini Games
Another thing you should keep a watch out for is the cute little crew members – the Bloopers. They can randomly appear in the base game or the bonus game. Here’s what each of the Bloopers brings with them:
- Stuntman Blooper: You get expanding Wilds when this Blooper is seen on the reels.
- Cutter Blooper: This Blooper is triggered when the J symbol appears in the Free Spins. This cutter can create cascading reels, thereby increasing your chances of winning more paylines.
- Make–Up Blooper: You will be awarded extra Free Spins when this Blooper appears. She will only appear when the Q symbol lands on the reels.
- Fix–It Blooper: This Blooper will shuffle the symbols on the reelscape to give you a better chance of winning.
- Tech Blooper: You will get random Wilds when this Blooper is handling the reels.
The best part about the Bloopers is that they can land quite frequently, especially in the bonus game. You can even get multiple Bloopers in one go, which means that your chances of winning big are increased significantly!
This game’s design shows some of the Elk Studios trademarks – the full-screen reelscape, the high-definition graphics, the great music and sounds and the fun animations.
The introductory clip is so beautifully done, you would think it’s the beginning of a full-length movie from the ’50s! In this game, the reelscape looks just like movie reels! The difference in this slot machine vis-à-vis the other popular titles by Elk Studios is that the low-value symbols are not thematic, but the regular playing cards (which is a little disappointing, since this developer does those thematic symbols so well!).
The music will remind you of a 60s Hollywood mega-movie’s orchestra and the sounds are like a silvery cascade. And then the animations, voice-overs and the upbeat music during the bonus games are absolutely outstanding!
We have become huge fans of the slot machines created by Elk Studios, especially Bloopers. This game is beautifully designed with funny and engaging characters and amazing animations! The gameplay is also fast-paced and the wins can be huge! We will definitely ask all players to try this game!
