We Check Out the Black River Gold Slot, the Fourth Slot in the ELK Gold Series!

Mr Green Casino will be adding the fourth slot in the ELK Gold Series on the 5th of May 2020, titled Black River Gold you are transported to the end of the Western era with a central character Kane looking to secure his fortunes in this new changing world.

The Black River Gold slot is a multiple winning ways, avalanche styled slot which features many similar mechanics that you may already be familiar with on previous ELK slots such as Voodoo Gold such as tumbling reels, expanding ways with each successive win and gigantic symbols up to 4×4 in size!

This slot has all of these features and a few novel additions thanks to Compass Wilds which converts matching symbols either side of it into wilds and a unique Revolver symbol which collects any symbols into its gun chamber that are beneath it and can even convert into a gigantic wild symbol when the gun chamber is filled completely.

The bonus round is where the full potential of this slot can be seen, with ever-increasing winning ways that stay permanently increased during the free spins, semi-sticky wilds that will remain on the reels until a win is created and the combination of revolver, compass and gigantic symbols in play.

Big base game hits are also a definite possibility too thanks to the rising number of ways on each successive win, and the gigantic symbols, the main frustration with most of these slots is the actual difficulty in triggering the main bonus features.

It is fair to say you should expect to be patient when playing this slot if you want to see several bonus features, take into account that big base game hits are part of this slots attraction, and be very patient in waiting for a bonus trigger!

All the loaded symbols will act as a gigantic symbol if they form part of a win, filling up the revolver completely converts this symbol into a gigantic wild.

Wild Compass

The special Wild Compass Symbol will convert any matching symbols at either point of the compass into wilds, when this symbol reaches the bottom of the reels it also gets converted into a wild symbol.

Free Spins

The main bonus feature is triggered by landing 3 or more bonus symbols anywhere on the reels, during the 10 free spins the wilds act as sticky wilds until they form part of a win.

The increasing ways mechanic is also maintained by a special safety level indicator , new wins secure increased safety levels and more starting winning ways for the remaining free spins.

Black River Gold Slot

Overall Opinions

The Black River Gold slot from ELK Studios is another enjoyable release from them with the addition of some novel and interesting special features, whilst the core gameplay will also feel familiar to some of their previous avalanche style slots.

The main frustration on this slot and many others by ELK is the difficulty in hitting the main bonus features, the base game does offer some fantastic hit potential but this slot certainly requires a lot of patience to play to see its full potential from the bonus round.

In our playtests, we had base game hits of well over 150x stake and similar bonus round results too. players that enjoyed their previous avalanche style slots will definitely enjoy this release, it’s more of the same with a few new twists.
