Hit It Hard Slot
We really had mixed opinions about the Hit It Hard slot from ELK Studios as they generally have done a great job in providing a lot of entertainment from the classic 3 reel slots, this slot has a glimpse of that with the novel mini-features during the bonus round but this was heavily overshadowed by the frustrating bonus mechanics.
The combination of quite a low “hit frequency” coupled with a bonus mechanic that requires a winning spin to keep the bonus round active actually feels quite frustrating, especially if you waited for a long period of spins to trigger the bonus and it’s over after the first dice roll.
Our extended playtest did produce several wins over 200x stake thanks to multiplier wins and the Pachinko games, but if we were playing this slot for real money would would have left well before this time due to the frustrating bonus feature.
There are definitely some good points to this slot, but you will have to be a very patient player to enjoy this release!
