Net Entertainment’s platinum video slot, Elements the Awakening, was a trailblazer in its class when it was first release in 2012. The praise received by the game upon its release and after can be attributed to a number of factors:
A Striking Audio-Visual Interface
Set on an unknown fantasy planet in some remote corner of space, Elements the Awakening presents a powerful sensory 3D experience. As its title suggests, the game is centred on the four elements: earth, fire, air and water – graphically represented by a bull, a lion, a bird and a sea creature, respectively.
Against the backdrop of the vast and dusty plains of said mystery planet under a starry night sky, Elements The Awakening plays out with constant animations and a space-age orchestral soundtrack with accompanying sound effects and ambient noise.
Avalanches Instead of Spins
In a striking departure from the traditional slots reels layout, the glowing element avatars and other Elements the Awakening symbols float ethereally in three rows across five columns, with 20 fixed bet lines. Replacing the spinning of the reels in Elements the Awakening is an avalanche effect in which the symbols fall into place on each round.
When a winning bet line is landed in Elements the Awakening, the winning symbols magically disappear and are replaced by new symbols which “fall” into place.
Four Different Free Falls Modes
If four winning bet lines are spun in a row, one of four 10-spin Elements the Awakening free fall storm modes, each based on a different element, is triggered. Each of the free fall storm modes differs from the others and players can anticipate which free falls mode is up next by monitoring the Elements the Awakening energy meter at the bottom of the screen.
Four Different Wild Symbols
The main Elements the Awakening game has four different wilds, each linked to a different element, which can replace other symbols to form winning combinations. As in other online casinoslots NZ games, combinations formed with wilds yield the highest payouts.
In addition, every free fall storm mode has its own specific storm wilds, each linked to a different element, in Elements the Awakening. When a particular mode is activated, the wilds for that mode will appear to stand in place of other symbols and create winning paylines. Each of the storm modes functions slightly differently and has its own unique advantages.
Coin Values and Bet Limits
Elements The Awakening has a 1-coin minimum and a 10-coin maximum bet limit, with various possible coin values – 0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, 0.20 and 0.50 – which can be adjusted by the player.
Additional Elements the Awakening Features
Although Elements the Awakening does not have a multiplier feature, it does have a number of other unique and useful elements. These include time-adjustable auto-play mode and quick play mode, as well as adjustable animations, graphics and sound settings.
Elements The Awakening is ideal for experienced players who are looking for a more challenging and interesting game, as opposed to newcomers to online slots, who may find the number of options and game play a little overwhelming.
