Six-reel, four-row slot Pink Elephants Slot, from Swedish games studio Thunderkick, has this operator’s trademark cartoon-style graphics plus a whopping 4,096 ways of winning and a terrific free spins round. The theme is, as the title suggests, inspired by the world’s biggest land animal. Head off on an epic quest across the African plains as you hunt the magic peanut!
‘Seeing pink elephants’ may be an expression more commonly used to describe alcoholic overindulgence, but the beasts in question here are very real – and could lead you to some jumbo winnings!
How to play
You’ll love the African landscape backdrop, while the main pink elephant and four meerkat characters stroll around the screen, and the large reel design makes a distinct change from the norm.
Click on the Coin function to set bet size, before hitting Spin or choosing the Autoplay option to turn the reels automatically and with no interruptions for a fixed number of spins. What’s more, as ever, you can play this game on your device of choice, mobile or otherwise, from a trifling 10p a spin, or for as much as £100 per whirl.
The lower-value playing card icons 9,10 and J through A are depicted on stones. The most lucrative emblem is the pink elephant, rewarding you with up to 100x stake for six across a Payline.
Finally, there are four medium-paying meerkat symbols, in red, yellow, blue and green.
Pink Elephants Slot special features
The Wild symbol is simply the letter W, and it replaces all other icons in the usual way, apart from the Scatter, which in this game is the magic peanut.
Meanwhile, the mystery Scatter is the luminous green peanut.
Free spins bonus
As ever, this is a highlight of the game. Land a minimum of three Scatters anywhere you like on the reels to launch this one, and win seven, 11, 15 or up to I9 free whirls, according to the number of triggering icons.
Bag at least two further Scatters during the round to enjoy an additional three, five, seven, nine or maximum of 11 spins.
Elephant Orbs bonus
Collect the Elephant Orbs and watch as they fill up the symbol meters on your screen during the free spins round. Once they’ve reached the top of the meter, that particular symbol becomes the high-value pink elephant for as long as the bonus round lasts, plus you get an extra free go.
Since there are four symbols to convert, that’s up to four additional pink elephants on the reels, or potentially 34 free spins in all.
Mystery Scatter symbol
Launch this in the base game when up to five mystery Scatters can appear at random on any spin, boosting your chances of accessing the bonus round.
Return to Player (RTP)
Return to Player or RTP is a bog-standard 96.1%, so nothing to write home about there. But some patience may be needed with this highly volatile game. This slot can be rewarding, but it may take you a bit of time to reap the rewards and for the bonus round to kick in.
Entertaining, action-packed and straightforward, as well as being visually stunning, Pink Elephants Slot is definitely worth a spin or two, not least because you can win up to 8,200x stake every time you turn the reels.
One or two reviewers have described the base game as slightly mediocre. But we like the typically quirky and unusual theme, and think you’re in for lots of fun here. Give it a go, and tell us what you thought.
