The DJ Wild slot from Elk Studios is a nightclub themed slot where you become DJ Wild, a superstar musical genius (superyachts at the ready please, I am already in Monaco) who entertains the house and offers a 1,700 times stake win! Elk are those people behind games like the Kaiju slot machine and Wild Toro of course, and pretty handy they are too at producing great games.
Elk Studios have done it again, creating a pulsating slot packed with a warehouse full of different money-spinning Wilds including sticky, expanding, and jackpot wilds, and there are even re-spins to throw onto the dance floor too! And did I mention the 50,000 coin jackpot?
ELK Studios have built a reputation on their games looking so good, and DJ Wild certainly looks the part of a game based heavily on music. You’ll get sucked into an atmosphere of a wild night in a Balearic club. It got my body moving! And I’m just recovering from the mosh pit on the Jimi Hendrix slot which is another musical feast.
The designers have gone to town on the details of the game, even synchronising the music and the game’s animations. Superb is what I say.
While I know quite a bit about the opera and Mozart in particular, I can’t swing around here talking about DJ Wild without pausing to mention the soundtrack on this game- it’s up there with the best of the clubs in the French Riviera. The perfect scene setter to accompany your play as an international Superstar DJ. Elk like a bright game (just play the Electric Sam slot if you don’t believe me), and if you’re the same then DJ Wild won’t disappoint.
DJ Wild is a five reel, 3 rows and 10 pay-lines crowd pleaser that pays from left to right and vice versa, and can be played across all your devices.
This game makes joining the fun easier than getting dressed up to go to a club in the first place. There are spins from 25 pence or cents to £/€/$ 100 a spin.
The icons are the essential kit for every international jet setting DJ (this is starting to sound rather like one of my incognito missions). The high scoring icons you’ll want to land are a keyboard, mixing desk, a mixer and a set of earphones.
The lower value icons will be familiar to those of you who’ve spun the reels on a fruit machine and include a plum, a slice of melon, lemon and a pair of cherries – although these are pixelated to look futuristic.
The Wild is the game’s logo and this can land vertically or horizontally which activates the bonus feature. The Vertical Wilds come in a group and include fire, smoke and confetti Wilds- these are the visual effects on offer to you, Superstar DJ! The Horizontal Wilds include strobes and laser Wilds. You might want to slip on some sunglasses if these fire up.
All the Wilds only land on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5. Reel 3 is the preserve of the Jackpot Wild alone!
DJ Wild comes with a Betting Strategies feature is common to Elk Studios games and is there to help to you automate your play. As a master of game theory this couldn’t please me more!
Just a single wild on the reels, with the exception of reel 3, will trigger the bonus game and give you Expanding Wilds.
If a vertical Wild lands there will be some pyrotechnics with the Wild expanding and you’ll be awarded a free spin with extra Wilds added to the reels to boost your winning chances. If you land any of the additional Wilds this will re-trigger the feature and if you can keep landing them- the rewards should hopefully increase time and again increasing in value until the Wilds stop coming.
These little movers can land on the reels and gift you with a free spin, but this time instead of expanding upwards, the reel will expand across to the neighbouring reel and then spin to try to make you a winning combination. Again, if you land further Wilds you can re-trigger the feature. I don’t mind if I do, bring some Bolly!
The Jackpot Wild fires off when you get a Wild to land on reel 3 only (all the other reels already need to be covered in Wilds). When you direct the dancefloor in this direction, you will get an astronomical 50,000x coin prize.
The Monkey Verdict
This game is a pulsating, pumping dance fest and with the potential to win the life-changing 50,000x coin prize as part of the Jackpot Wild it has big appeal. Be warned that this is a volatile game , so hold onto your headphones and get spinning the reels for steel!
