According to trance pioneers “God is a DJ” – now slot fans have the chance to play the almighty in DJ Wild, a new dance music themed slot from ELK Studios. Built for mobile/tablet first, the desktop version is a 5 reel, 20 payline game that comes with re-spins as well as sticky, expanding and jackpot wilds. Enter the DJ booth from between 25p and £100 per spin.
Scandinavian developers have developed a fine reputation for creating easy on the eye slots and the Stockholm-based ELK Studios have lived up to those lofty expectations in DJ Wild – the mobile version was the first slot to let symbols cover the whole of the screen and the desktop equivalent is equally impressive.
The symbols include a selection of futuristic looking fruit as well as assorted DJ equipment such as mixing desks, headphones and synth keyboards – the animations are synced with the music to hypnotic effect. Wild DJ comes with a trio of extra elements – look out for blasts of confetti, fireworks and smoke which greet the arrival of the expanded vertical sticky wild which can turn all 3 symbols in a column wild. Keep an eye out too for the strobe and light which mark the horizontal sticky wilds.
The perfect configuration you’re hoping to see on the reels is the DJ Wild symbol on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5 which leads to the expanding wilds – a re-spin will follow with the sticky wild. Extra wilds are added to the reels during the re-spins too increasing the chances of landing even more re-spins. Land the Jackpot Wild in the middle reel with the DJ Wild symbol on the rest and you’ll hit the jackpot.
Just like the sweeping, electronic soundtrack that accompanies the on screen action, the play in DJ Wild is upbeat. This is a highly volatile slot – expect some lean spells when the winning tempo seems relatively low. The action can soon spring into life though thanks to the re-spins and sticky wilds though and if your luck is in there are some euphoric highs on offer.
Well designed, volatile and featuring enough added extras to keep the pace high, DJ Wild is a very playable slot. If you’re a dance music lover, then you’ll certainly want to take it for a spin. Even if repetitive beats don’t float your slots boat, the prospect of a maximum 1,700 times stake win should certainly pique your interest.
ELK Studios may be a small software provider but what they’ve produced has impressed me – check out Taco Brothers which is superb.
