Elk Studios Just Launched Bloopers Pokie
From the creators of DJ Wild, Taco Brothers, and Electric Sam comes Bloopers, a Hollywood themed pokie game with a unique twist. Elk Studios developed the game. They are a Sweden based developer, founded in 2012.
Elk is known for its emphasis on quality over quantity. As a result, they have developed a mere 5 games in the 4 years they have been in the pokie industry. Elk Studios uses advanced mathematical models and top of the range technology, and are well known for their focus on the mobile platform.
What We Like
The idea of a Hollywood themed pokie may seem a little unoriginal. But Elk has thrown in a twist, and the game is really about the bloopers. This pokie is themed around the men and women behind the scenes, of our favorite movies and T.V shows. For the first time, in a game, the people behind the scenes are the center of attention. This is quite refreshing take on the tried and tested Hollywood theme.
As the game begins and the camera pan forward, a relaxed narration plays out. The voice of a male announcer set the pace for the game. We like the games music. It is a smooth old orchestral piece, which reminds you of old movie, and smoky jazz bars. It is not over the top or distracting, but a groovy mellow tune you can relax and spin some reels to.
Elk displays a thoughtful planning and attention to detail, when designing a game. They never leave the success of their game to chance. It is a well designed game with crisp graphics and a very tidy interface. The panel is not below the reels as is the convention, but made up of opaque white circles around the reels.
This design choice is common across ELK’s range of games. It is part of their commitment to mobile gaming, and it makes sense on a small screen. The reels take of the whole interface, and there is no background image or anything. Again, on a small 5” screen this saves you squinting your eyes to work out what is going on, or if you have won.
There is a frees spins bonus game triggered by landing three bonus stars. Everything from the music to the display goes through an electrifying transformation. The music increases in tempo, and the announcer ushers the screen into life with the introduction of tiny, somewhat hilarious creatures- the bloopers.
They are 5 in total, each with a different color and purpose. They are the blue stunts man, the yellow sound tech, the purple fix-it, the pink makeup artiste and the green cutter. They each come with rewards, which just crank up the excitement and winning chances for players.
The maximum payout is an enticing. In a single spin, you can win up to 185000 in coins. These are the riches that we expect from a Hollywood pokie, and is an impressive win from such a young company.
What We Don’t Like
The minimalist design keeps the game tidy, and makes it easier to play, especially on a mobile device. We found that on a desktop the design was a little boring. It is still a nice looking pokie, but the full screen reels were a little dull. This
Is the Game Worth Playing?
It is a great game with decent wins, which sustain a bankroll and some nice features. The theme is a refreshing take on Hollywood, and we like the originality of this game. We are going to play it, for all of these reasons, and recommend you do the same.
