Elemento is the newest game to be launched by the developers over at Fantasma Games. This time, they have taken their inspiration from nature, or rather the four elements. These are of course earth, air, fire, and water. Another thing that makes this slot release pretty unique is that it's Fantasma Games' first grid slot and on this occasion, they have decided to go big and have also included a Cluster Pays engine.
When having a look at what kind of special features you have to look forward to, we can first say that the overall gameplay is quite unusual and will take some getting used to. Aside from that, you do have a couple of features in store for you. There are four different Element Wilds, a Free spins feature with possible re-triggers and a Feature Buy.
Where to play
How to win big in Elemento – Free Spins feature
The biggest wins of the slot will be available through the Free Spins feature, which you can trigger by activating all four Element Wilds during a spin. You will then be rewarded with 5 free spins where you will get 1 extra for every Element Wild that triggered the feature.
You will start off with a standard x1 payout rate, however, each avalanche win will increase that multiplier by 1. All cluster wins will then be boosted by this multiplier which can grow up to a maximum of x99. You are also able to get re-triggers hereby activating all the four Element Wilds once or more during a free spin. Here there are no limits to the number of free spins you can get.
- Feature Buy
- Element Area + Play Area
- Element Wild
Depending on where you will be playing from, you might have the option to make use of the Feature Buy, which will allow you to buy your way into the Free Spins feature for x60 your total stake. This will also increase the RTP to 97.94%.
In order for you to understand the gameplay of the slot, you have to understand the game engine. You will start off with a 9x9 grid where the top, bottom, left and right rows and columns make up the Element Area. In this area, only the Element Wilds and blanks can appear. The 7x7 portion in the center of the grid is the Play Area where regular and wilds can land. Should you land a cluster of symbols, an avalanche will follow which works by removing all symbols part of the win, in order to make place for new ones. Any symbols in the Element Area will not be part of the avalanche.
Finally, we have the Element Wild features which can appear in the Element Area. These will move around clockwise with every successive avalanche. When an Element Wild is part of a winning cluster, it will be activated. This will then also increase the meter you can see to the left of the reels by 1 and when no more winning avalanches are in play, any feature connected to this activated Element Wilds will play out.
Fire Wild feature – between 2 and 10 more wilds are randomly added to the grid. X Flood feature – 9 positions in an X shape inside the Play Area will transform into the same symbol, which can be triggered twice during a single trigger. Demolition feature – 1 low-value symbol is randomly selected. All of the selected symbols will be removed from the grid and a new avalanche takes place. Tornado feature – 1 symbol is randomly selected where 8 adjacent symbols will then be removed from the grid or will be turned into the same matching symbol. This feature can be activated twice from 1 single trigger.
Look and Feel of Elemento
Elemento is as already mentioned, inspired by the four elements. While you might be expecting something along the lines of icebergs, volcanos, tornados, and earthquakes, Fantasma Games has gone for a pretty different approach. Instead, you will be seeing a colorful, almost cartoon-looking slot with crisp imagery. A pretty simple design, but a design that works well with the large game grid and plenty of moving parts.
On the reels, you will be seeing a total of four low-value symbols as well as four higher-valued characters. The most valuable symbol of them all being the red-colored character.
