ELK Studios Ivanhoe Slot Review and Free Play

Ivanhoe: Demo

Join a gallant knight on a quest to regain the English throne for King Richard the Lionheart in Ivanhoe. This 3 reel, 17 ways to win video slot from ELK Studios comes with a 5-stage free spins bonus round where multipliers increase as you progress. High risks can deliver big rewards in this highly volatile offering. Play from 20p to £100 per spin on all devices.

The story of Ivanhoe may take us back to the 12th century but you’d be hard-pressed to guess that from the design of this game – the only nod to the mediaeval theme comes from the castle that forms the backdrop to the reels. Those 3 reels have as much of a look of a 1-armed bandit as anything from the middle ages.

You’ll see classic fruity favourites like cherries, lemons, melons and lucky 7s spinning round the reels. Joining them is a crown which is the wild, and a red and white banner which is the bonus-triggering scatter. Land 3 of those scatters and you’ll trigger the Ivanhoe Bonus Game feature.

Free spins and multipliers are the name of the game here – the free spins are played over 5 levels. Each level has a threshold of coins – if you break that threshold, you’ll take any free spins you have left through to the next level where bigger multiplier prizes, and more free spins, are on offer.

The level 1 threshold starts at 25 times your bet with all payouts doubled. Reach level 3 and the multiplier increases to 4x with the threshold topping 200 times your bet. Make it all the way to the final level 5 and all payouts are boosted by a 6x multiplier. The top prize on offer here is a mighty 3,000 times your stake!

This historical adventure isn’t for the faint of heart – this is a highly volatile game. Expect lengthy spells without troubling the cashier much. Watch out during the free spins round though as the multiplier can quickly get the coins flowing.

Video slots from the ELK Studios stable are usually user-friendly affairs and that’s the case with Ivanhoe, especially for mobile users. It’s been specially optimised for one-handed play. This is a bit of a departure from ELK Studios though – it doesn’t have the visual bells and whistles we’ve seen from some of their other releases.

It might lack flashy design but Ivanhoe does deliver plenty of thrills thanks to its high variance gameplay. Get on a roll in the bonus and this trip to the middle ages can deliver plenty of treasure. If you like high variance, medieval themed games, you cannot go wrong with WMS’ Black Knight II.
