We Check Out Classic Themed 3-Reel Win Win Slot From ELK Studios!
Mr Green Casino has just added ELK Studios latest classic themed slot Win Win to their casino. This three-reel release looks classic in style but comes packed with various innovative features that can interact together and produce some very interesting gameplay combinations and win potential.
Win Win uses 17 fixed paylines to give more winning combinations than you generally expect from a regular three-reel machine, along with a Special Win symbol that appears on reels 1 and 3 and comes into play when it lands on the middle payline, awarding wins for both the other two symbols on that payline
If you manage to land 2 Win symbols on the middle payline, then a 10x multiplier is applied to the win, land the triple golden 777 symbols too, and you can look forward to a 500x stake win.
There are plenty of other features to look out for, too, including Locked Reels Respins, which lock the reels in place and grant three re-spins of the reels, which can occur not only with the special Win symbol locked but also with the bonus scatter symbols, giving you multiple chances of triggering the main bonus round.
We managed to trigger three bonus rounds back to back with the locked reels in play during our playtests!
The bonus round is where things heat up, though, as a base multiplier is applied to any wins. Successive winning combinations during the free spins increase this value up to a maximum of 10x, the special Win symbol and the re-spins feature can also both be triggered during the bonus round, increasing the win potential of this massively up to 5000x stake (10x multiplier applied to a Triple Golden 777 Win-Win combo!).
If you are a fan of the more classicly themed slot machines and enjoy the more modern special features, then Win Win should be ticking many boxes for you.

Locked Reels Respins
The Locked Reels Re-Spins feature is activated when identical symbols on reels 1 and 3 land in view and then lock into position for three respins while the middle reel re-spins. The locking feature can include the bonus scatter symbols giving multiple bonus trigger chances, along with the special Win symbol locking in place for three chances at hitting the maximum payout symbol.
The Win symbols
The special Win symbols appear on reels 1 and 3 and will activate when they land on the special central payline. With just one Win symbol on either reel, pays are awarded for the other two symbols that landed on the payline. With two Win symbols on the payline, a 10x multiplier is applied to the win, and with the unique golden 777 symbols reaching a vast 500x bet wins.
The Free Spins round is triggered by landing three bonus scatter symbols in view to trigger the bonus game.
An initial multiplier is randomly awarded (2x up to 10x). Scoring winning spins will increase this value but losing spins will decrease it, eventually leading to a bonus end. Both of the previously listed features can activate during the free spins, and these interactions are what can make this slot very interesting, with Win symbols and locked reels producing some crazy win potential when they occur.
Lucky hits advance the multiplier along the ladder up to the maximum x10, which might stay for numerous spins. A non-win lower the multiplier, but the bonus game continues until it passes below the lowest level.
The bonus game can continue through an infinite number of spins! Of course, the Win symbols are in play in the bonus game as well, resulting in the chance to win x5 000 on a single payline. The bonus symbol becomes wild in the bonus game, which considerably increases the chance to win on the golden 777 symbols. Triggering the Locked Reels Respins inside the bonus game put the bonus game on hold, but the multiplier is kept, and can advance during the respins.
Win Win Slot Review
Win WIn Slot - Overall Opinions
Win Win is another exciting slot release from ELK Studios. It will probably only visually appeal at first glance to a core of slot players who still enjoy the more classic themed three-reel machines, but it really deserves not to be overlooked.
The special features are all quite innovative for a three-reel slot, and the way that these can all interact together makes all of them even more exciting when it happens, the base game win potential can seem relatively low, but the win symbols and triple golden 777 symbols do make up for this, the 10x multiplier in the bonus round ensures there is some huge win potential though!
Our playtests had mixed results from around 10x to well over 200x stake wins, with plenty more potential on offer. The icing on the cake, though, was three back to back bonus triggers from the locked reels feature in the base game, the kind of feature where you are wondering whether they have included it, and the satisfying feeling of it actually happening!
Overall this slot will possibly be overlooked by the masses but is definitely worth checking out and should prove to be a breath of fresh air if you have been playing other styles of slots recently.
