Hit It Big is a 5 reel, 5 payline slot from ELK Studios that can be played from 20p to £100 a spin on desktop, mobile and tablet devices. With a retro game show theme, you can benefit from 4 features on each base game spin to give you stake multipliers, respins, stacked wilds and locked wilds. The main attraction sees you spin a 3 level grid to win cash prizes – if you reach the middle level, you can win 1,000 times your stake.

Visually, Hit It Big has a retro feel and looks rather good (as do all ELK Studios slots). Played on a 5×3 reel set, this brightly lit slot has classic casino symbols on the reels – you’ll see Bars, Double Bars, Triple Bars, green 7s, blue 7s and red 7s on the reels.

There’s also golden treble 7s which are the most rewarding symbols – 3, 4 or 5 across a payline will give you 7, 25 or 50 times your stake respectively. The wild symbol (with a crown on it) replaces all symbols bar the bonus symbol.

You’ll notice there at buttons below and above the reels – if you see a matching feature above and below the reels, you will trigger that feature. Here’s what you can benefit from:

  • Win feature – can give you a stake multiplier between 2 and 50 times your stake only if you get a winning spin.
  • Respin feature – gives you a respin on all reels for another chance to win.
  • Stacked Wilds feature – covers the whole reel with wilds for the current reel. This can occur of various reels.
  • Locked Wilds feature – both reels 1 and 5 are covered with locked wilds with 3 free respins to follow.

The slot also comes with a Hit It Big Bonus Game feature which is triggered when you get 3 Hit It Big bonus symbols on the reels. You’ll then see a 5 by 5 grid when 3 levels – the outer circle, inner circle and Hit It Big centre screen. A stop reveals a random stake multiplier and leaves a Bandit symbols behind – you’ll win that prize. The aim is to not hit the same square twice as landing on the Bandit ends the feature.

An inward pointing arrow will make you move to the next level and move you towards the centre screen – if you hit an outwards pointing arrow, you will go back to the outer circle. If you reach the Hit It Big bonus level, you will see much higher stake multipliers that can reach a whopping 1,000 times your stake. You only get 1 spin to hopefully you’ll win the big prize – the smallest cash prize is 100 times your stake by the way.

Hit It Big is definitely innovative and unique – it’s also highly volatile with top payouts of 2,500 times your stake from the Hit It Big Bonus Game feature. I also like the fact you can benefit from cash prizes, respins, stacked wilds and locked wilds on every base game spin.

Overall, another very impressive slot from ELK Studios – we are big fans of their work and I suggest you also try Ecuador Gold and Wild Toro.
