- A fine slot from Elk Studios with some classic features
- Use the Bonus game to work your way up to big rewards
- A classic style slot with a retro design
Hit It Big slot from Elk Studios has a retro design and some fun features to boot, but is it worth your time? Let’s take a closer look and see.
First of all, the game looks great in my opinion. It’s different and refreshing, albeit pretty old school. There are flashy lights and classic symbols, giving the game an exciting feel. It might not be for everyone, but I love it. Then you have the 5 reels with 3 rows, but you’ll also notice some additional positions above and below each reel which I’ll come onto shortly. To get going, you just need to spin the reels to get a winning combination from left to right. This is done using the base symbols which are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- Single Bar (lowest value)
- Double Bar
- Triple Bar
- Green Seven
- Blue Seven
- Red Seven
- Triple Seven (highest value)
First of all, can I just say how great it is to see some of the classic slot machine symbols being used here? It’s a rare sight for sure, and I don’t understand why. Anyway, moving one. These symbols pay out in winning combinations of 3, 4 and 5, but there’s also a Wild symbol which will substitute for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the Bonus symbol.
Hit It Big Slot Bonuses and Features
Bonus Game. The Hit It Big Bonus Game is triggered when you land 3 Bonus symbols anywhere on the reels, as you’d expect. This type of Bonus works in levels, 3 of them to be precise, on a 5×5 grid. You start off on the outer circle, and you need to get an inward Arrow symbol in order to make your way up to the next level. When you land on a square, a random stake multiplier will be revealed and you’ll win that prize. A bandit symbol will be left behind, and if you land on it again, the Bonus Game is over. Land on an outward pointing arrow and you’ll go back to the outer circle. Your main goal is to make it to the Hit It Big Bonus Level which has large multipliers up to 1,000x your stake, or as little as 100x your stake. You only have one spin here though, so make it count.
Base Game Features. There are a few features available outside of the Hit It Big Bonus Game which are triggered when you get a matching feature above and below the reels. These are the features available:
- Locked Wilds. This will cover the entire of reel 1 and 5 with Wild symbols that remain in place for 3 respins.
- Stacked Wilds. This will cover the corresponding reel with Wild symbols for that spin only.
- Respin. This will resin all of the reels.
- Multipliers. You can win a multiplier here up to 50x, but only on a single payline.
Elk Studios have produced a pretty entertaining game here with Hit It Big slot. It has a cool retro design with some traditional symbols, and even the main Bonus is a bit old school with working your way up to higher levels. It’s quite rewarding too, with up to 2,500x your stake available throughout the Bonus. If you fail to make it to the big board though it can be a bit disappointing. The base game features are nice too, with the Locked Wilds feature the clear favourite but all of them can work fairly well and trigger quite often. All in all, it’s a fun game with some nice rewards and would probably suit most players, so give it a go. You can also check out some of Elk Studios other slots here.
