Elk Studios are well-known for making highly innovative mobile slots, and Kaiju is no exception. The sci-fi storyline is particularly fascinating as it explains a futuristic battle between robots and alien creatures, but not in the way you might imagine. The Kaiju (after whom Elk Studios has named its Kaiju slot game) are plagued with a curse which causes gems and crystals to grow on their skin, and not in a pleasant way. As an outlet for the pain, the creatures take to attacking humans, and the only being that can stop them is a female cyborg called HA-42.
The game uses five reels and 243 paylines, and offers a top win of 130,440 coins. And, if those aren’t good enough reasons to take it for a spin, how about free spins with expanded reels that offer a maximum of 7,776 ways to win, sticky wilds, and a Vertical Laser Feature which reveals an extra wild symbol following a win?
The Kaiju slot is a great-looking game that brings a futuristic oriental city to life with flashing neon lights, electronic billboards, smog, and flashing tracks that glimmer up and down its streets. Even the slot’s creator (Elk Studios) couldn’t resist giving itself a shop sign, which you’ll see up on the right-hand side. The semi-transparent reel set looks a little like a computer motherboard, and on it are fifteen spaces which are filled with a selection of symbols each time the reels are spun. There are x symbols in total, including a blue triangle, the cyborg (known as HA-42), a green crystal, a blue crystal, a red crystal, and three payment cards worth 90, 120, and 150 credits respectively.
In the Kaiju slot game, the wild symbol (N.B., a blue triangle with “WILD” in white font) doesn’t land on the reels of its own accord. Instead, it’s generated every time three matching symbols that are vertically connected create a win in the base game. Consequently, a wild symbol is added to the row above the win. This is known as the Vertical Laser Feature.
The bonus symbol in the Kaiju slot is the HA-42, and when three appear across Reels 2, 3, and 4, the Kaiju Battle Bonus is triggered, and awards seven free spins.
The Battle Bonus in the Kaiju slot randomly selects one of the three aliens, each of which has its own pattern of five hotspot symbol positions on row four, five or six. To defeat the creature, you must activate all of its hotspots.
Firstly, the reel set is expanded to twice its usual size, although to start with, you still have 243 ways to win. But, by creating vertical wins and triggering the Vertical Laser Feature, the reels open up to offer you a maximum of 7,776 ways to win. Each time that the reels expand, you receive an extra free spin. If the Vertical Laser activates a hotspot, all symbols on the vertical connecting line turn into wilds. Once the last remaining hotspot is activated, any wild symbols that are generated become sticky on the screen for the duration of the feature.
