The slot game developer Elk Studios is another gaming firm based out of Sweden, following in the footsteps of casino software behemoth NetEnt and the online games company Play’n Go. However, unlike these other Swedish firms, which have a wide range of slots and of other table games, Elk Studios is very much focused on a small portfolio of mobile slots. There total number of games is tiny compared to some of the established slots developers, but what they do have are highly rated by players. However, the company have only been in existence since 2012. A combination of top-quality graphics, catchy background noises and advanced maths models make Elk Studios slots very appealing. All Elk Studios slots are built in HTML5 and are available on most devices, however the company have pinned their flag to the mast of mobile. All player experiences, game buttons, settings and visuals are very much geared up for use on a handheld device.
Their small, but growing range of slots consist mainly of cartoon-themed games with interesting characters like fun and friendly troll Electric Sam or the Mexican bandits known as The Taco Brothers. An interesting feature that Elk Studios have developed is a ‘betting strategy’ setting, allowing players to change their betting pattern preferences. Other than giving a bit of variety, rather than the usually favored ‘flat betting’ strategy, I can see no other point to using this betting strategy setting. It is a bit like a casino offering you the ‘Martingale strategy’ as an alternative to your regular betting on ‘Red’. There is no proven benefit, so why would you do it? To any players reading this and wondering if there is any benefit to Elk Studios’ betting strategy, my answer is simple – No. So don’t be fooled into thinking you will be gaining any advantage, you will simply be playing into their strategy of getting you to play for longer and therefore spend more money.
Elk Studio slots are available in several very reputable casinos and are growing in popularity all the time. They are certainly worth giving a go, just to experience a well made game. Although be aware that some of their slots can be on the high side in terms of volatility.
