  • A playful game with a lovely setting from Elk Studios
  • Interesting pay mechanic sets this slot apart
  • Lots to like here including a huge win potential

Pirots slot from Elk Studios is a play on the words pirates and parrots, and that’s exactly what this theme is. It’s set on a gorgeous island somewhere with a lovely background, although there are no animations in the back which is a bit of a shame. The reels here are transparent and there are 5 with 5 rows to start with, but as we’ll soon see, you can get additional positions. These reels don’t have your usual paylines, pays are actually made when the birds eat gems and they’ll do this as long as they are adjacent to each other and of the same kind, of course. Gems can be upgraded to become more valuable also. There are 4 coloured gems to look out for; blue, green, purple and red.

Pirots Slot Bonuses And Features

Like most slots, this game has a number of features to keep things interesting and rewarding.

Symbol Collection. As I mentioned above, birds eat symbols in this game to pay out. Upgrade symbols are also available, upgrading gems of the symbol colour as the bird that collects it. If the upgrade symbol is multicoloured, all gems increase. Gems will upgrade by 1 to 3 steps, up to a maximum of 5. You can also get transform symbols, turning a cluster of gems around it into the same colour as the bird that collected it, or into a random number of feature symbols.

Coin Symbols. This feature symbol, when collected, pays out its value, shown on the coin.

Wild Symbols. These substitute for all other gems at their current level.

Bomb Symbols. When collected by a bird, these will explode when there are no more wins, removing all symbols apart from feature symbols close to it. This causes symbols from above to fill the empty positions, and it also expands the grid up to a maximum of 8 reels and 8 rows.

Free Spins Bonus. This is triggered by collecting 3 bonus symbols, giving you 5 free spins. The grid size on the triggering spin is what is carried over, so the higher the better. It will not reset during the bonus, but can still increase. Collect 3 more bonus symbols during the bonus to get more free spins.

Conclusion

Pirots slot from Elk Studios is rather innovative with their pay mechanic here. It’s nice to see something away from the traditional pay lines or Megaways, and I have to say it works quite well and isn’t overly complicated. There are lots of symbols to look out for with different features and all can be quite rewarding, with a total of 20,000x your stake up for grabs here. What really lets this slot down though is the RTP of just 94%. This is well below the average and it’s hard to understand why the developer has gone so low here as it will undoubtedly put some players off. If you can look past this it’s a great game, but for many I think that will be a dealbreaker and I hope Elk Studios don’t continue this trend.
