ELK Studios Announces South American Adventurer Slot
The Swedish company ELK Studios announced the release on February 19, 2019 of the Ecuador Gold slot machine about the mysteries of the ancient pyramids in South America. The main character of the game is the adventurer Kane, who goes to Ecuador for the gold of the Incas. Inspired by the legends of El Dorado, he finds himself inside a pyramid with stone bas-reliefs, behind which countless treasures are hidden. The high-paying Ecuador Gold symbols are represented by golden masks of the gods and a portrait of Kane himself. Also on the drums you can see carved images of snakes, birds, crocodiles and leopards. The image of the sun, whose cult was practiced by ancient civilizations, replaces the wild. One of the features of the machine is the use of larger symbols: Super (2×2), Mega (3×3) and Epic (4×4). The developers from ELK Studios have implemented in Ecuador Gold the original function of expanding the reels in the avalanche mode, which is activated every time a winning combination appears. Each bonus cascade consistently increases not only the number of rows on the reels, but also the number of potentially available combinations: 4 rows (standard mode) – 4096 ways to win; 5 rows – 15625 paylines; 6 lines – 46656 ways to win; 7 rows – 117649 winning combinations; 8 rows – 262144 ways to win. This feature continues in the free spins mode, which is triggered by 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters. Free spins in the Ecuador Gold slot The Avalanche Free Drops bonus feature also involves the use of cascading mechanics when winning combinations fall out, which, however, has a significant difference from the principle implemented in the standard game. When using 10, 15, 20 or 25 free spins, additional rows on the reels do not disappear after an ineffective spin. Thus, having collected only 4 combinations in the Free Spins mode, the player continues free spins on the playing field with a maximum size of 6×8. Slot machines about ancient Mayan pyramids, Aztec and Inca treasures are popular among gamblers. Earlier, three companies NetEnt, Blueprint and Relax Gaming announced the imminent release of slot machines of this theme.
