Elementals Slots

ElementalsElementals is a game from Microgaming, a slot machine that is themed around the four elements, meaning Earth, Fire, Water and Air. The elementals are creatures that represent these elements and they have powers or appearances that are inspired by these four cornerstones of nature. The idea is a good one, the design is not that great though. Let’s see how the rest of the game fares.

You place your bets on up to 20 lines, you spin the 5 reels, and you hope for the best, meaning for the $25,000 top jackpot to be awarded to you. Along the way you will get features that include free spins, scatter symbols, wilds and multipliers.

Features of Elementals

All the information on the features is available on the paytable, and you will find there that it includes a wild symbol which doubles prizes, scatter symbols that will give you payouts of their own, plus others that will trigger free spins with multipliers.

The WILD Logo is just like it suggests with its letters, a wild symbol. This feature is going to be triggered quite often, more so than the prizes or free spins that come from scatters. Whenever a single wild appears in a position where it could do more good if it were another regular symbol, it will take that role and that will result in a new combo forming up. The wild only helps if it’s on the exact position where the symbol is needed. All combinations formed this way, with a wild being part of them, will have double the typical prize, a 2x multiplier coming with this feature.

On top of the usual wild ability that comes with this symbol, you also get a chance to create regular combinations that have all wilds in them. Two to five wild symbols, when they appear on the same line and starting from the left, will award between 15x and 5,000x the line wager.

The Orb is a scatter symbol, the first of the two that are available in Elementals. Its only role here is to give you a prize, as a total bet multiplier, with the amount being determined by the number of Orbs present at the same time on the reels. Since they’re scatters, their exact position doesn’t have to be on a payline, instead being enough to have them somewhere on the screen. Payouts vary between 1x and 200x the bet, for 2 to 5 Orbs.

Free Games Feature

20 free spins are offered in Elementals, with all wins benefitting from the presence of a 2x multiplier. The symbols that will get you the free spins are the E Logo scatters, which appear at the same time on the 1st and 5th reels when this feature gets triggered.

Betting options and jackpots

You will spend anywhere between $0.01 and $100 on a single spin of reels. The lowest denomination is $0.01 for a coin, while the highest is $0.50. You may use up to 10 coins on each active line, so the line bets reach $5.

As for the prizes available in the game, the best one would be that 5,000x line bet multiplier, which will bring you up to $25,000.

Design and symbols

The idea is a good one, but the implementation lacks a certain quality when it comes to the drawing style used for them. I didn’t find the elementals to be appealing, and they were supposed to be the best looking ones in the game, especially since most of the other symbols are fruits that are usually found in classic slot machines.


Symbols: Wild Logo (wild, 5,000x), Orb (scatter, 200x bet), Sun Logo (scatter), Fire Elemental (300x), Water Elemental (250x), Earth Elemental (250x), Air Elemental (200x), Orange (150x), Melon (120x), Lime (100x), Plum (100x) and Cherries (60x).

Is It Worth Playing?

It’s a decent slot machine in most areas, but not that different from many other slots, plus its design is not impressive at all. I wouldn’t go back to it, but you’re not going to regret trying it out.

This Elementals slot is offered by all online casinos with Microgaming software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
