Elvis-themed slots have been synonymous with the gaming industry for decades now. It is open to interpretation whether that is because of the pop icon’s legendary status in his own right or his strong links to Las Vegas. However, one thing is certain is that Elvis slots have well and truly left their mark on the slots industry.
You only need to look at the Elvis – A Little More Action slot by IGT and the Elvis – Top 20 slot release by Barcrest to see how popular the Elvis-themed slots are. Innovative slots developer WMS Gaming was certainly not going to be left out of releasing their own Elvis branded slot.
11 Reels and 80 Paylines!
Elvis the King Lives is a whopping 11 reel, 80 payline slot that is very imposing at first glance. If you’ve played it at a land-based casino then you will know what to expect. If this online venture is your first experience of it then buckle in and get ready. The reels are laid out in two sets of 2×2 reels with a 3×6 reel also included. Each position on the two sets of 2×2 reels acts as an individual reel. It is a Double Money Burst slot from WMS meaning that there are a number of ways you are able to trigger the bonus feature. This is another great feature from WMS that helps to make their slots captivating from the start.
Symbols across the reels include Elvis in various poses including Elvis brooding, Elvis singing, Elvis playing guitar, and Elvis in a mid-hip shake. There are also symbols such as a hound wearing a top hat, a guitar, blue suede shoes, and a purple teddy bear. The remaining symbols consist of your regular Jack-through-to-Ace symbols.
Earn 20 Free Spins with a 100x Multiplier
Right, the free spins bonus round is where the action gets thrilling. You will receive 5 free spins by either hitting four or more of the same symbol on reels 1-4 and/ or reels 5-8, also known as the two sets of 2×2 reels. You can also trigger the 5 free spins by hitting three or more of the Elvis Feature Scatters on reels 9-11, also known as the 3×6 reel set. You can also trigger 20 free spins by hitting three of the same symbols on reels 1-4 and/or reels 5-8 along with hitting three or more Elvis Feature Scatters on reels 9-11 as well. In addition, if this happens, you will receive a cash bonus of 100x your bet.
Interestingly, the symbols you hit that triggered the free spins will remain locked in place for the duration of the free spins. If you did not have four matching symbols on reels 1-4 and/or reels 5-8 then the symbols will be replaced by larger symbols that can help you win big prizes.
Win 10 Extra Spins in the Jukebox Bonus
Don’t get too excited yet. There’s even more. Before the free spins begin, there is a Jukebox Bonus that comes into play. You will be presented with a classic jukebox where you must try to land on one of four classic Elvis songs. These songs are Hound Dog, Big Hunk O’ Love, Blue Suede Shoes, and Teddy Bear. If you hit Hound Dog then you can win 10 extra free spins. There is also the potential to win up to 25x your bet in cash prizes.
Elvis the King Lives is all about the free spins. The reels lay out is similar to other WMS slots such as the Roman-themed Spartacus – Gladiator of Rome and the colourful Gems Gems Gems. The Elvis songs playing on each spin means fans of “The King” will feel right at home and the action when the free spins kick in will be enough to tempt even the biggest hater of Elvis to come back for more. 11 reels, 80 paylines and total free spins carnage.
