Hit It Hard
Hit It Hard
The wombat says: G’day Wombat fans! To celebrate a new decade those genius games-makers at Elk Studios have gone back to the 90s with Hit It Hard slot (or gone forward in time I guess if you have just been playing Ecuador Gold– their Aztec slot). And according to Elk themselves ‘simplicity meets a feature-packed slot that you thought only exists in your dreams’.
Wowsers. That’s one big old claim…
Still, one thing we do know is that Elk always put out truly great and completely unique slot games – and rumour has it that this one comes with board-game inspired bonus round trail. Which we like the sound of. A lot.
Look and Feel
Hit It Hard is the sixth slot in the ELK Classic Series – which means they are going back to the old school once again. There´s plenty of this around with the likes of the Lock a Luck slot and others- it must be catching! As you’d expect this means neon, and lots of it. The reels are done up with razor sharp graphics and are set within a 3D fruit machine on an eye-catching blue, purple, and pink background. At the top you’ll see a mega bonus board game – but more on that later. As for the tunes to accompany your spins, you’ll be treated a catchy little piano number that you’ll be humming in no time.
It’s ‘hats off’ to Elk Studios once again!
Wombat fans: The base game is the easy bit… Hit It Hard slot has 3 reels, 3 rows and 5 fixed pay lines – just like the old fashioned pub fruit machines (or Pokies as we call them in Oz). If you were looking for a more standard 5 reel 25 liner, then we´ve plenty of those with games like the Treasures of Lion City slot and others. Let´s get back to 3 reels then shall we. 3 is the magic number.
Your symbols on the reels include red 7s, blue 7s, green 7s, triple, double and single bars plus some fruity icons as your lower value icons; tasty melons, luscious lemons and juicy cherries will pay out 1.5x, 1x and 0.5x respectively.
The Wild icon in Hit It Hard Slot will land on reel 3 only and also comes with a 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x multiplier – hurrah! Meanwhile, the dice icon acts as a trigger for the Bonus Feature. Look out for it on the middle reel – it will add a cheeky 10x multiplier on to your winning combos, too. Cheers Elk! You really are spoiling us.
Free Spins and Bonuses
Roll the Dice Bonus
As we mentioned, land the dice on the middle reel and you’ll trigger off the bonus game. And let us tell you it’s an absolute cracker.
There’s 23 mini-games for the taking and the whole feature is set out like a board game that’s jampacked with multiplier wilds, stacked wilds, re-spins and pachinko-type mini-games. And, as long as you land a win on each mini game, you’ll up move on to the next level and the bonus game just keeps going on… Here is the full list of features on the board:
A mini pachinko game launches 3 balls onto a board and will land in on one of several multipliers; up to x100. You’ve got 4 goes to wins. Don’t ballz it up!
This awesome mini feature is exactly the same as Lucky Ballz, except this time you’ve got an unlimited number of rolls. The feature is over when you land the same multiplier twice – again you’ll find multipliers from x2 all the way up to x100.
And there’s more good news! You’re guaranteed scoop a win here, so it’s on to the next round for you…
Here, you’ll get 3 Free Spins, by on the first go reel 3 will be stacked with Wilds. On the second Spin it’s reel 2’s turn, and on the final spin both reel 2 and 3 will be fully stacked with Wilds. Nice!
This is a good ‘un. In this game, you’ll get 10 spins with a Wild on reel 3 every time and the multiplier amount can vary on each spin.
Land on this tile and you’ll spring gazelle-like through the board much faster than you would with a bog standard dice roll. Cool.
This next bonus is a cracker and could prove mega mega lucrative! Set this off and you’ll move 6 spaces ahead, plus you’ll trigger every bonus that you passed along the way. Whhhhhaaaaattt? Our paws are sweaty just at the prospect!
Break the Bank
Finally, to set off this, the Big Daddy of all features, you’ll need to collect 2 Bronze Keys. How do you manage this? Well if you make it around the bonus board twice and then land on the vault – you’ll trigger the Maximum Win of 250,000 coins and officially break the bank!
Whenever a Wild lands on reel 3, you’ll either scoop a multiplied win, or on a no win spin, the 3rd reels will lock and remain sticky for a re-spin. And who doesn’t love a second chance for wins, eh Wombat fans?
As with all Elk Studio slots, us lucky players can also control our betting strategy by using the game’s Bet Level selector. Which we think is a nice touch…
Jumper: After a win the bet level will increase by x1, up to 4 levels above the original bet (that means x10). After a losing spin the bet level will reset. So for example if your original bet is €0.15 per spin, in case of 4 consecutive wins the bet will go to €0.30, €0.60, €0.90, up to €1.50
Booster: This is the opposite of Jumper. The bet level will increase by x1 after each loosing spin, up to 4 levels. After a winning spin the bet level will reset.
Leveller: The bet level will increase by x2 after 5 consecutive losing spins. It can happen twice. A winning round will reset to basic level.
Hit it Hard slot might look basic but don’t be fooled slot lovers! This game comes with an absolutely cracking array of bonus features – and the base game is no slouch either. Those Wild Respins could keep your bank balance topped up nicely, too, all thanks to the the multipliers than can reach up to x5. The variance in the mini games positively mental and this wombat scooped 963 big ones during the bonus trail. Oh, and we completed it once too.
So, it’s time to Hit It Hard Wombat fans.
