Electric Sam gameplay
Gameplay is not difficult to understand in Electric Sam – once you get used to the non-traditional game screen and betting options.
To start the game, you need to set your bet. You need to click on the betting tab located at the bottom left corner of the game screen. Unlike other slots games, you get to choose from 5 different betting options.
- The first is the Traditional Betting option where you simply need to choose your bet amount.
- The Optimizer, where you choose the percentage of your balance you wish to set as a bet.
- The Leveller, where your betting amount goes up by two levels for every 5 straight losses. This cycle repeats twice to reach the maximum of 10x your initial bet. Any wins you land will reset the bet.
- The Booster, where your betting amount increases by one level after every loss to a maximum of 4 levels (10x). Any wins you land will reset the bet.
- The Jumper will increase your bet after every winning spin. The bet amount will continue to rise until you reach the maximum of 10x. Any losses will reset the bet to the original amount.
When choosing your betting strategy, it would be wise to keep in mind that this game has an RTP of 96% and is a pretty volatile game. This means there will be periods where you don’t win anything, and then there will be sudden spurts of big wins – maybe even the jackpot. Because of this, it is best to bet low and wait for the big wins.
To win in Electric Sam’s forest casino, you need to land a set of 3 or more identical symbols from left to right on the reels. The regular symbols are the old-school lemon, grape, watermelon, lucky 7 and the bell. We will talk about the special symbols in the next section of our review.
Additional Game Features
In the base game, you can win as much as 80x your base bet. If you are aiming for that mega prize of £200,000, then you need to jump to the bonus features.
- Free Spins
The Bell is the Scatter symbol, and when you land 3 of them, you win 5 Free Spins. 4 Bells on the reels will win you 10 Free Spins and 5 will bag you 15 Free Spins.
The great thing about this game is that if you land more Bells during the Free Spins, you get more free spins!
- Mini Feature 1: Sticky Wilds
The Free Spins bonus also activates other goodies. The first is the Sticky Wilds. If you land at least 3 Sam symbols, he will turn any one symbol on reels 2 to 5 into a Sticky Wild. This Wild will stay on the reels for the rest of the Free Spins bonus.
- Mini Feature 2: Multipliers
If you land at least 3 Sandra symbols (that’s Sam’s wife!), then she will multiply your wins during the Free Spins round. The multipliers can range from 1x to 10x.
- Mini Feature 3: Imploding Symbols
If you snag 3 or more Maggie symbols (Sam’s daughter), then she will implode all the fruit (low-paying) symbols on the reels. This will make room for more symbols to cascade and increase the potential to get winning combinations.
We absolutely love the game design created for Electric Sam. This is one game that clearly shows the dedication that Elk Studios has to produce the most creative and fun video slots in the industry!
Electric Sam uses modern versions of old-style fruit slot symbols. You will still find those good old bells, watermelons, lemons and lucky 7s on the reels. However, they are drawn up like neon signs – giving these old-fashioned symbols a fresh breath of life! You will also find the magical fantasy symbols that are unique to this game.
This strange mix of symbols actually makes the game look even better and actually blends so beautifully with the storyline of a Troll running a casino in the woods!
The music isn’t as impressive as the graphics and artwork, but it isn’t bad either. It is just not as impactful as the visuals of this game are.
Elk Studios has created a visual treat of a game with Electric Sam. And when you couple that with the fast-paced gameplay and the possibility of being able to win a massive £200,000, it makes sense that this slot machine has a rating of 9/10.
This is a game that we would recommend everyone (not just the fantasy or retro slot fans) try. You will seldom find a game that is so creative!
