The new IO online slot from ELK Studios was released on Tuesday, June 2nd, 2020, and it can now be found at several top UK online casinos such as Mr Green Casino, Party Casino, Slots Magic Casino, PlayFrank Casino and PlayOJO Casino. It has a Space/Futuristic theme with 6 reels and 4,096 different ways to win.
However, additional rows of symbols can be unlocked each time a new winning combination forms, and this means that the total number of win ways that some lucky spins can be played with (at no extra cost) is a whopping 262,144. The lowest cost per spin starts from just £0.20, the maximum cost per spin is fixed at £100, and the jackpot that you can play to win on this new ELK Studios slot is worth a cool 5,000x times your total stake (or 500,000 coins).
The game has an Avalanche game mechanic and a gravity game mechanic, the latter of which basically sees symbols being drawn to the left and right as they fall down from above after each new winning combination forms. It sounds more complicated than it actually is, and it should only take a couple of spins for you to adjust to this new format. The two main special symbols to keep an eye out for on this game are the Bonus Symbols (which are really easy to spot) and the Wild Symbols (the letter ‘W’).
Some of the other things that you can look forward to are Lasers, (which can create straight lines of Wild Symbols), a Wild Forge Symbol (which can multiply wins), and a Charged Wild (which is basically the same as a regular Wild Symbol), but this one can only work to complete a maximum of four wins in a row before it completely loses its charge. The most exciting thing about the new IO online slot is the Free Spins Bonus, which will instantly trigger when 3 or more Bonus Symbols land anywhere in view on the same spin.
The Free Spins Bonus is played with all 8 rows of symbols unlocked, plus the Charged Wilds and Wild Forge Symbols can also both land during the bonus to help generate some really big wins for you. If you’re looking for something completely different, while at the same time, if you enjoy playing on games such as Starburst from NetEnt, Space Gems from Parlay Games, Stars Megaways from Blueprint Gaming, then you should also enjoy playing on this fun new game. You may also like Starz Megaways from Pragmatic Play, and Gems Gone Wild from Red Tiger Gaming. Two of the things that I like most about the new IO online slot are the sound effects and background audio.
