We Step Into the Weird and Wonderful World of Pink Elephants 2 From Thunderkick!
Casumo Casino has just added the latest Thunderkick slot Pink Elephants 2 to their casino, this is exclusive early release weeks ahead of its official release date of the 6th of May, so if you are looking to the play this slot immediately Casumo if your casino of choice.
Pink Elephants 2 is the follow-up release to the trippy and unusual Pink Elephants slot which remains a popular and novel slot, normally we would expect some refinement and slightly modified gameplay and features with their slots such as the new features added to Esqueleto Explosivo 2 which definitely managed to address the features that were lacking in the original slot.
We struggled with Pink Elephants 2 to see literally any new features, the base gameplay seems almost identical with regular scatter triggers along with randomly added extra scatters, and the main bonus feature still has a collection style mechanic with symbols being transformed as more pink elephants are collected, the bonus triggers and extra spins are also present here.
Whilst the graphics have had a minor refresh we were very hard-pressed to see anything distinctly new on this machine that makes it really stand out over the original machine.
The overall gameplay is just like the original, most bonuses will end up slightly disappointing as you run out of free spins with a few symbols upgraded, you really need to hope for a couple of re-triggers to fully convert this slot into the Pink Elephant symbols.
If however, you do manage to full convert these symbols in the bonus round with spins remaining then the win potential of this machine skyrockets, with only premium symbols heavily stacked on the reels and the lowest paying symbols left.
If you are still a fan of the original slot then this is essentially just more of the same.

Pink Elephants 2 Slot
The Pink Elephants 2 Slot From Thunderkick is a slightly disappointing release, we were really looking forward to testing out this machine, but there is absolutely not enough new features on this machine to make it stand out from the original slot, in essence, it has a fresh lick of paint and not much else to offer.
There may be some minor differences in the collection symbols but simply not enough innovation on this machine to make it a worth seeking out with any urgency. The volatility seems close to be very close to the original too, you will get several very bad bonus round, where only a couple of symbols will get upgraded before running out of free spins, the few times you do manage to convert all 4 symbols.
If you do manage to convert all symbols then this machine does have huge potential, in our short playtest we managed well over a 400x stake win from a 4 scatter trigger.
Overall though I think fans of the original will be mildly disappointed by this release as there isn’t anything really new and fresh!
