A second 3x3 reel set containing only high paying symbols comes into play during the game’s three, symbol triggered features. The theme of the game, evident from the background artwork, soundtrack, and some of the game’s symbols, is the Mexican Festival Día de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead). Diablo Reels is of medium/high volatility with a maximum payout of 2,500x the bet. As ever with Elk, the betting range goes from €0.20 to €100 per spin.

How to Win Big in Diablo Reels – Free Spins
3 decorated skull scatters awards 10 free spins. During free spins, both 3x3 reel sets are in play. The second reel set sits directly above the regular reel set and it only contains high-value symbols. Both reel sets have their own 5 paylines.
The game’s other two features, described below, are also available during free spins. Landing 3 scatters during free spins activates a full bonus retrigger.
- Wild Stack Respin
- Nudge Wild
Regular wild symbols come stacked on all reels. Land a full reel of wilds to trigger the Wild Stack Respin feature.
During the Wild Stack Respin, the second set of reels comes into play. Furthermore, the wild reel remains sticky and is joined by an identical wild reel directly above it on the second reel set. The Nudging Wild is a wild symbol adorned with an ‘up’ arrow. Landing a Nudging Wild activates the Nudging Wild feature, whereupon the Nudging Wild moves up the reel one row at a time while the reels respin. Respins continue until the Nudging Wild has climbed to the top of the second reel set. When the Nudging Wild crosses over to the second reel set it may be awarded a multiplier of 2x, 3x, or 5x. In the event of more than one Nudge Wild on the reels at the same time then their multipliers are combined for any winning combos in which they both appear.
If the Nudging Wild and Wild Stack Respin feature crossover, then the Wild Stacks on both reel sets remain sticky for the duration of the Nudging Wild respins.
Look and Feel of Diablo Reels
Elk Studios have excelled themselves in terms of design and artwork. The vibrant colours, animations, decorated skulls, flowers, and general décor are top-notch. Above the reels, scrolling characters, scenes, and even the game’s fiery logo come in and out of view. The slot itself obliges with some classic fruity electronic beeps and bleeps while the reels spin, but the soundtrack, when left idle, is a wonderful Latin American piece, perfect for a Mexican Mariachi band.
The Mexican theme spreads to the symbols, where the standard 7’s, bars, bells, and watermelons are joined on the classic white-backed reels by red chilis and halved limes. The full complement of regular symbols and their respective values can be seen below, along with diagrams of the paylines.
Diablo Reels is a fine addition the Elk’s Classic Series, where it joins the likes of Vegas Diamonds, Win-Win, Hit in Hard, and Hit it Big. It has the perfect complement of contemporary features to go with the classic reel and cymbal set-up. This game is sure to appeal to classic slot junkies but may well attract plenty of interest elsewhere.
