As players demand more in the way of payouts and innovations, developers have been forced to think big and Thunderkick likes to think bigger than most. Pink Elephants is a perfect example of this, as it goes beyond the norm by offering six reels and a staggering 4,096 ways to win. No, you’re not seeing things! Those are some very impressive features which few slots can compete with.
In another twist on expectation, the betting system is different to the average spinner. In fact, unlike the payout structure that’s fairly complex, placing a bet is extremely simple. Instead of asking you to fiddle with coins, levels and everything else in between, Pink Elephants offers quick bet buttons. Once you’ve clicked on the coin icon, you’ll see a selection of bet amounts ranging from £0.10 to £100.
For us, this system is great because you know exactly what you’re spending on a spin within seconds. On top of this, each prize is listed in cash amounts relative to your bet size. So, instead of forcing you to perform a series of calculations so you know how much you’re staking and what you’re winning, Pink Elephants allows you to see everything in real terms. This means you can spend less time messing around and more time playing for prizes ranging from £0.03 to £1,000+.
The main reason Pink Elephants stands out from the herd is potential. Yes, the fixed jackpot of £1,000 isn’t huge, but that’s just the start of things. When you add in the fact you can pick up multiple wins across the six reels and 4,096 ways to win, the prize potential already starts to look better. That's before you even factor in the bonus round.
By rolling in the mystery symbol, you increase your chance of activating the bonus game at random. If that way doesn’t work, you can roll in three or more scatters (peanuts) to unlock between three and 19 free spins. Once the bonus round is live, Elephant Orbs can appear at random intervals and fill up special metres that then turn symbols into elephants. As more elephants appear, your chances of banking a win increase. That’s the beauty of this slot. In fact, if the stars and elephants align, you could bank as much as 8,200X your stake by unlocking this feature.
Despite featuring a ton of ways to win, intricate graphics and animated symbols, Pink Elephants didn’t miss a beat during our test. Thunderkick has always had a solid engine and this 2017 release is no exception.
In our opinion, the biggest selling point of this game is its look. The exotic background is given an injection of life by live action symbols. From the pink elephants puffing and panting to the cheeky meerkats winking at you, everything in view is doing something interesting. Although prize money is always important, fun is also the name of the game, and Thunderkick has done a fantastic job of making this spinner one that’s engaging on every level.
For an entertaining experience with plenty of ways to win, Pink Elephants is a solid option. The enhanced reels/ways to win dynamic is certainly something serious players will appreciate, while the lively interface will appeal to casuals. Overall, for a solid mix of fun and financial potential, you can't go wrong with Pink Elephants.
