Elvira Mistress of the Dark Slot Game Review
Elvira Mistress Of The Dark may be familiar to some of the older Video Slot reader’s amongst us today, and there’s good reason for that.
Back in the 1990’s, there was an Elvira Mistress Of The Dark slot game made by IGT, which was available in many land-based casinos, and it’s funny as it actually made the TV Show more famous – needless to say it wasn’t a massive hit.
However, the IGT slot gained popularity, and recently, Aristocrat Gaming Technologies decided to secure their own license, which allowed them to create a brand-new, up-to-date version of the game, and to say they’ve done a good job would be an understatement!
Much like many of Aristocrat Gaming Technologies most recent Video Slot games, Elvira Mistress Of The Dark slots game uses a unique 1,024 ways to win setup, which basically means there’s no pay lines.
It works like this; whereas on a conventional Video Slot you’d need to match winning symbols on a winning pay line, when you’re playing 1,024 ways to win format, you simply need to land a symbol on each reel in order to secure a win.
If you’re familiar with Net Entertainment or Microgaming Video Slot games, you’ll notice this has been present in games such as Game of Thrones, When Pigs Fly, and Immortal Romance, and it’s catching on fast, as it not only gives players the chance to win more when big hits come in, but it also adds an extra dynamic to the game, ensuring it’s an entertaining experience at all times!
The main bonus-round within Elvira Mistress Of The Dark is the free-spins round, and this is triggered by landing three of more scatter symbols anywhere in view on the screen.
Like Aristocrat Gaming Technologies other TV Show game, Downtown Abbey, Elvira Mistress Of The Dark takes you to a separate screen during the bonus round, and here, you’ll get unlimited free-spins until you fill a reel at the side of the screen with symbols.
It’s not the most exciting bonus-round free-spins rounds we’ve seen by any means, but the low variance nature of the slot means it comes out quite regularly, and while you won’t always hit HUGE while playing the free-spins bonus, the regularity of it coming out means you’re always kept entertained, which is a big bonus!
Pros: A great “reincarnation” of the old, dated IGT slot of the same name.
Cons: The gameplay isn’t anything too special, and lacks charisma at times.
