Thunderkick heads to the desert in Pink Elephants. Played using an unusual 6 reel, 4,096 ways to win game engine, this video slot comes with a free spins bonus round where collecting orbs fills meters to transform lower value symbols into the most lucrative elephant symbol. Play on all devices from between 10p and £100 per spin.
We usually have few causes to grumble about the design of Thunderkick games and Pink Elephants is another looker – the setting here is a dusty desert. The reels include lower value A to 9 playing cards shaped as pebbles and a family of unidentified furry creatures.
The most lucrative symbol is of course the pink elephant. Land 6 of these on adjacent reels for a payout of 100 times your total stake. Helping to create those winning combinations is the W wild which can land on all 6 reels.
Pink Elephants comes with a Bonus Game feature – it’s triggered in the usual manner by landing multiple scatters on the same spin, in this case the magic peanut symbol. Land 3, 4, 5 or 6 of them and you’ll get 7, 11, 15 or 19 free spins.
You’ll notice 4 meters to the side of the reels once the free spins begin, each 1 relating a member of the furry creature family. Land orbs and spaces on these meters light up. Once all the lights are shining on a meter, you’ll be awarded an extra free spin. That symbol will then transform into the highest value elephant symbol.
Re-triggers are possible here too as landing 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 peanut scatters will add another 3, 5, 7, 9 or 11 free spins to your tally. With 4 medium value symbols to transform, you can get a total of 34 free spins.
At first glance, Pink Elephants looks pretty exotic as it’s not every day you see a 6 reel, 4,096 ways to win game. The gameplay is actually pretty simple though. The highlight is the feature. Get more than 1 symbol transformed into the high value elephant and some very decent action is possible.
We found the feature pretty tricky to land mind you – that’s because Pink Elephants is as volatile as they come. On the other hand, you can win up to 8,200 times your total bet on every spin! High risk does mean high reward so it depends whether you like high variance offerings or not – if you’re familiar with WMS’ Raging Rhino or Playtech’s Buffalo Blitz, you’ll love Pink Elephants.
