Welcome to the future with Elk Studio’s blockbuster Kaiju slot – themed in a dark Japanese-style cityscape. Think Blade-Runner but with Kaijus, or giant monsters, thrown in for extra measure!
This is as dramatic as their Poltava slot game, but instead of being based in the 1700s, we are in high tech Japan.
The intro let’s you know the kind of edgy world you’re about to enter! Humanity has one final chance to make it back from the brink of destruction.
An android female with the snappy name HA-42, has the skills to end the kaijus’ reign of terror; armed with her sharp wits and a variety of jewels and tech gadgets. Can she save us all from the monsters?
This is a game with a few surprises up its sleeve- just wait until you see the the laser show! We love the Manga styling.
Being a fan of the Koi Princess slot, that should come as no surprise- although this game’s heroine is somewhat meaner looking.
Look and Feel
As you expect from a slot from Elk Studios, they have produced a game that looks superb! The graphics are high quality with transparent reels to allow you to see the full drama of the game unfolding in front of you.
The reels are set against a dark street clustered with high rise buildings and advertising boards. It’s kind of like an updated Robocop slot machine with added tech.
The music is tense and futuristic with a soundtrack that ramps up the tension and immerses you into the world of this dystopian slot.
Kaiju Game Play
Kaiju comes with 3 rows, 5 reels and a hefty 7,776 ways to win. It’s a slot that can be played across all devices.
The high value icons are three gems stones in red, blue and green. There are also three matching coloured credit cards.
The game’s Wild is the word Wild and subs for all icons except the Scatter Bonus symbol, the serious-faced android heroine.
This is an original game with some neat touches. When you lure a winning combo on to the reels, a laser light crackles over the winning icons making a Wild appear at the top of the reels. This little twist means more winning chances for you –and these lasers are key in the bonus feature.
Battling Monster Free Spins
Land three of the Scatter icons on reels 2, 3 and 4 and you activate the free spins bonus mode. This kicks off with a generous 7 free spins to get things started.
This might be when you might feel like hiding behind the sofa- as you will have a new set of reels with one of three randomly selected “Kaiju” monsters to beat.
During this mode, each monster can be defeated by triggering “hot spots” using nifty vertical lasers that were handy in the base game.
If you get Wilds, these expand the reels upwards, awarding an additional free spin as they do so, and the expanded reel sticks around for the rest of the spins. Get those hot spots and beat the Kaiju which when beaten reward you with sticky Wilds that can make for some nice wins.
As with many Elk Studio slots, Kaiju comes with a Betting Strategy function.
There are four different Auto strategies to try, Optimizer, Jumper, Leveller and Booster up for grabs.
As I expected, the Kaiju slot has fantastic looks and plenty of tech and imagination. This is an atmospheric slot with some innovative features.
Careful, though as this is a pretty volatile game. For me, this game is all about the monster battle feature. Those sticky Wilds can be quite lucrative if your luck is in.
