Diablo Reels Theme – devilish, retro action

Diablo Reels slot base game

With its 3 reel game engine and rather retro design, there’s an old school feel to the Diablo Reels slot. That’s no surprise given it’s part of ELK’s Classic Series.  The symbols are very simply draw and could come straight from a slot machine from a brick and mortar casino. It’s bright, bold, in your face and very nicely done.

With the flames of hell billowing away in the background, the plain white reels are made up of an assortment of chillies, lucky red 7s, bars, limes, watermelons, horseshoes, gold bells and diamonds. The shiny gemstone tops the payouts, awarding 50 x your bet if you land 3 on a payline. That same amount is on offer from the wilds.

ELK Studios has created a fully optimised Diablo Reels mobile slot. The simple design and 3 reel gameplay make it well suited to play on a small screen device. You’ll have no problems playing on your mobile.

Diablo Reels Bonus Features 

In the Diablo Reels slot, wilds are the key to success. There are 2 different types of wild: Stacked and Nudging. The latter come with potential multipliers. The other extra is the free spins feature.

Stacked Wilds feature

Fill any reel with stacked wilds and you’ll open up the top set of reels. A respin is awarded with the stacked wild from the lower set of reels expanding to fill the whole of the top set of expanded reels too. The top set of reels has 5 paylines, just like the bottom, taking the total number of paylines to 10. After the respin has played out, the reels return to their standard size.

Nudging Wilds feature

As well as a standard wild, you’ll see a second wild symbol that comes with a gold arrow attached. This is the nudging wild. Whenever a nudging wild hit, the reel nudges upwards, awarding a series of respins until it leaves the screen at the top. Nudging wilds that reach the top of a reel can come with 2x or 5x multipliers attached. It’s possible to land more than 1 multiplier wild. The values are combined when this happens.

Stacked Wilds + Nudging Wilds = Sticky Wilds

If you land a stacked wild and nudging wild on the same spin, you’re in line for even more goodies. The stacked wild turns into a sticky wild which can really give your winning opportunities a leg up.

Bonus Game feature
