The Monkey Summary
Kaiju slot is a fantasy games set in the future where giant gem and crystal covered monsters are terrorising cities and you have to call on the services of the heroine of the hour, a catchily named cyborg called HA-42, to beat those diabolical beasts. That sounds like just another day saving the world from my perspective (just don’t tell anyone about my secret agent status!). Plus there are expanding reels and monstrous fun in the shape of a laser guide Wild- I hope you’re keeping up? This is a game that draws on all of the classics like thhe Thunderstruck II slot and Gonzo’s Quest and manages to turn the dial up even more.
This is a game bursting with slick graphics, two bonus features and 7,776 ways to win.
ELK Studios have rather a lot of good form when it comes to designing eye-catching slots and this is game that has a look and a feel all of its own. There’s just such a huge gap between this and a more traditional game like the Aztec Secrets slot – the design is seriously impressive. This game is based on a famed Japanese genre of Kaiju movies themed around giant creatures wreaking havoc on cities.
If you can imagine a city that’s straight out of the film Blade Runner; neon, high-rise and bleak, then you’ve captured the essence of this slot’s setting.
The transparent reels are set against a city street at night and here the action takes place – you’re just waiting for the monsters to show up!
Kaiju slot is a 3 rows and 5 reels game that comes packed with so many ways to win that its frankly embarrassing – there’s a whole 7776 for your pleasure, plus it looks the business on your phone. This crazy number of ways to win is all down to the rather nifty expanding reels mechanism that’s part of this slot’s bonus feature. It’s rather smart stuff! Another winner from the makers of the Taco Brothers slot and Wild Toro.
A green, blue and red crystal (just like those peppering the monster’s body) are the high value icons of the game alongside three special green, red and blue cards which are the key to unlocking spins.
The Wild which is the word “Wild” against a turquoise triangle, only shows up when you trigger the Vertical Laser feature and replaces all symbols except the Scatter which is our cyborg heroine.
Kaiju Slot Bonuses
Vertical Laser Feature
The Vertical Laser feature is switched into motion if you land 3 matching icons vertically on the reels. Three in a row vertically will activate a Wild to appear on top of the reels, increasing your chances to enhance your win! Now that’s certainly more like cricket to me!
The big feature in this game is undoubtedly the Kaiju Battle Bonus Game which comes into play if you can land three Scatter icons on reels 2, 3 or 4. Now you are gifted a tempting 7 free spins with the laser Wild feature in place. What’s rather awe inspiring, and scary too, is the looming Kaiju monster that lurks behind the reels, waiting for you to win or fail….
This game is played with bigger reels –additional rows appear if you land those Wilds and with a free spin the reels can reach as far as the word Kaiju spelt out in letters by the monster’s head. If you reach the word then you make the connecting icons turn totally Wild and remain sticky until the feature ends.
Kaiju slot has forged new ground, with a game that is full of original features and which we’d categorise as a high variance game, especially if you can trigger the big bonus game. Now that’s worth getting excited about. Good effort ELK!
