Trolls and electricity don’t normally make the most obvious bedfellows; after all, Tolkien’s Middle Earth coped perfectly well without electric power. However, it’s discovery was bound to happen sooner or later and here we have Electric Sam, an online slot from Elk Studios featuring a troll king brandishing plug sockets.
Electric Sam is a five reel slot with three rows and 243 ways to win – paylines are abandoned in favour of wins formed by matching symbols in any adjacent reels from left to right. There’s a tree-lined backdrop to the reels and rune-covered stones just visible.
Electric neon signs form the main symbols and these include lemons, plums, watermelons, cherries, red sevens and three characters – Sam, Sandra and Maggie.
Special symbols include the game’s ‘Electric Sam’ logo which is wild and a gold bell scatter which activates the main feature.
Landing three or more of the bell scatter symbols anywhere in view will trigger the free spins round and you will receive the following:
- Three bells – 5 spins
- Four bells – 10 spins
- Five bells – 15 spins
There’s more though and each time you land another bell during those spins you will add one more spin to your total. There are also three mini-features associated with the spins:
- Sticky Wilds – land three of the Sam symbols and he will connect his plugs, turning a random symbol on reels two to five into a sticky wild. This will remain in place for the rest of the spins.
- Multipliers – land three of the Sandra symbols and she will increase the multiplier for any wins by 1x up to a maximum of 10x.
- Imploding Symbols – land three of the Maggie symbols and she will implodes all fruit symbols which will be replaced by others, potentially making new wins.
Elk Studios’ slots sometimes feature an automated way to manage your betting strategy; there are three available entitled Booster, Leveller and Jumper and you can read about them in detail here.
This game is all about the free spins and thankfully it seems to be pretty easy to trigger them. The extra features within the spins means there’s plenty of wins available here. There’s a pretty reasonable RTP of 96.00%.
*Tip*: To use Autoplay, hold the cursor down on the ‘Spin’ button until the option appears.
