Voodoo Gold Slot Review (ELK Studios) — The Third 262,144 Ways Avalanche Madness

The third ELK Studios game is here to push the boundaries of the Gold slots.

Fans of the series are going to enjoy a familiar feel of expanding rows, cascading symbols and paylines that go from 4,096 to 262,144 ways to win. For others, it’s a great introduction into the trilogy among Tahiti Gold or Ecuador Gold. This time the (new) bonuses seem to have more weight and don’t fail to deliver big wins across the board.

There are three unique features in Voodoo Gold: The Bomb, the Dual Bomb and the big voodoo symbols generating voodoo wilds. The volatility is set to 9 out of 10, but with a maximum win potential of only 5,000x, it’s well balanced to offer decent playtime for casual players as well as seasoned punters alike.

Super, Mega and Epic Symbols

First things first, it’s a slot with cascades/avalanches, so every time you trigger a win you get a chance to win another one as the winning symbols explode. As that happens, 4 reels becomes 5, and the ways to win expands from 4,096 to 15,625. This progresses all the way up to 262,144 ways and 8 rows after a few consecutive wins.

All low, mid and high-value symbols exist in four different sizes: standard 1×1, super 2×2, mega 3×3, epic 4×4. These are also called voodoo symbols because every time they leave hanging somewhere with an empty row beneath them, that empty row gets filled with Wilds.

As you’ll see, it’s a more powerful bonus than a similar feature in Tahiti Gold: those big symbols can easily get stuck for several re-spins, together with a nice row of wilds beneath them. This may also explain why regular symbols are almost twice less valuable than before.

👍 Tip: Use ELK Studio’s unique betting strategies to make the slot change bets automatically depending on the outcome.

Instead of making big symbols drop and destroy smaller ones as they collapse to the bottom, which is the case with the earlier releases, ELK Studios has created a new way to mix it up and destroy a bulk of symbols at once — Bombs!

Bombs & Dual Bombs

Bomb symbols make the Voodoo Gold slot less predictable.

When one Bomb appears anywhere, it destroys nearby symbols in a diamond shape. When two Bombs appear, they clean up the reels even more. Note: wilds and big voodoo symbols will remain on screen!

Free Spins Bonus — Featuring Safety Levels + Sticky Wilds

Get three or more Bonus symbols to trigger the main Voodoo Gold bonus. As proof that Voodoo Gold bonus features have lots of gunpowder, the minimum free drops (Free Spins) is now 6 instead of 10, and the maximum 15 instead of 25 (still re-triggerable though!).

There are two things that make the bonus worth waiting (both come with Tahiti Gold and Ecuador Gold). One is the expanding safety levels, which means the rows can only expand and will never reset, and sticky wild symbols. Note: only non-winning wilds in the bonus game become sticky.

The tricky bit is triggering the bonus, because the hit frequency is only 1 in 614 spins or twice as more as sister slots. From the few times that I managed to get the bonus, wins averaged to around 100x. However, even a single sticky wild on the bottom row can create a significant win reaction.

 

Conclusion

Editor's rating:
star-iconstar-iconstar-iconstar-iconstar-icon

Follow Kane on his quest for secret riches in the wetlands because this online slot turned out to be quite fun and less of a niche game for horror fans than you’d think. The SFX is great and the gameplay grippier than ever thanks to a new feature.

The biggest deal breaker for some would be the lowish RTP and less inviting maximum win than some similarly volatile games like The Shadow Order (Push Gaming).

It’s a great game to consider that won’t rob you blind, especially if you like the first and the second Gold slot.
