Forget A Little More Action, as there’s lots more action on the reels of Elvis Multi Strike, a hugely popular online and mobile compatible slot machine from IGT that has the King of Rock and Roll strutting his stuff over a unique 60-payline game.
When you load up this game on a desktop PC, Android or iOS mobile device, you’ll be struck by the sight of 3 sets of reels, one on top of the other, packed full of Elvis memorabilia and surrounded by photos of the man himself.
Get your blue Suede Shoes on and check the game out at one of the world's best online casinos that carry the range from IGT, and you don’t have to be an Elvis fan to enjoy all the thrilling gameplay that Multi Strike has on offer. Win multipliers that are available when you play all sets of reels, free respins and a fun game that pays prizes dependent on how loud fans are screaming, are just some of the special features.
You can play from stakes as low as 1.00 per spin or as high as 300.00, which puts it within reach of just about all bankrolls. A maximum cash jackpot of 40,000.00 can be claimed, but we think that novice slots players would be better off trying a simpler Elvis-themed game, such as Elvis the King, as the features here can be pretty complicated to grasp.
Read on to see how they work or try out the freeplay version before making real cash wagers.
Slots from IGT, are known for being easy to set up and use, but it gets a little more complex here, as you have three different bet levels. At the first level, you just play the bottom 5-reel, 20-payline set, while the middle reels also become active at the second level and all 3 sets are in play, with a total of 60 paylines, at the third and highest level.
It takes a bit of thought, although most gamblers will want to play all possible lines, which as we shall see, is really the whole point of the Multi Strike feature anyway.
The amount staked on each line is simple to change, with options ranging from 0.05 to 0.50. Other options include activating the Auto function to have the reels spin on their own without the need to click a button each time, and you can mute the sound or enjoy a few Elvis tunes as you play. It looks and sounds great on PC’s, Apple and Android devices alike.
The paytable is a useful guide to what each winning combination of symbols will be worth, as well as outlining how the bonuses including the unique screaming fans round, work. Just click the button above the reels to open it up.
Basic winning lines are formed by matching symbols across any active paylines from left to right. Those symbols include the letters E L V I and S, a Cadillac, microphone, guitar and teddy bear, with Elvis in a variety of poses being the most valuable.
Assuming that you have all 60 lines active, and we really recommend that you do, any time you spin the reels, the bottom set will spin first, paying out any regular wins that appear. If you win, the second set will then spin and any wins from these reels will be doubled in value.
The top set of reels spin if you landed any winning combinations on the second reels and should you also get a prize here, the value will be quadrupled. This Multi Strike is an amazing feature, and while it sounds complicated, in practice you’ll get the hang of it very quickly, so it’s nothing to be daunted by at all.
It’s not the only special feature though, as any time the Fan-o-Meter symbol is seen in 3 or more places across an active line, the fan bonus begins. You pick from 5 of Elvis’s bank of TV’s to play a song and win prizes if fans scream for long enough, so let’s hope you chose a popular Elvis tune. If the screams are loud enough, you can keep picking TV’s and claiming more cash.
Rockin Respins symbols trigger the Photo Memories round where you spin a wheel which lands on a picture of Elvis to award a prize. You can keep doing this until the pointer lands on a ‘Collect’ symbol and the feature ends.
A couple of quick in-game features add to the excitement of this game, with all reels spinning once and wilds locked in place being a particular highlight. A free spin and win multipliers are also yours to collect when 4 Rockin Respin symbols land.
Once you understand how the Multi Strike feature works, with multipliers rising when you get wins from the bottom , middle, then top sets of reels, this is an easy game to play. It’s a medium volatility slot where you should land fairly frequent combinations and like all IGT games, it’s fully licensed and certified for fair play.
There are a few other Elvis-themed slot machines available, with Elvis the King, also from IGT, being the most popular. Some slots, like Rock the Boat, from Microgaming are not official Elvis titles, but are clearly inspired by him.
This is a very straightforward 3-reel game which will suit punters who want much easier gameplay without lots of bonus features interrupting the important business of lining up winning symbols.
IGT and Microgaming slot machines can be found at many of the top online slots sites, so if Elvis is Always on Your Mind, check these games out and don’t forget to grab some bonus funds when you join up.
