Elvis the King may not need any introduction to those of you who have any sense of musical history, but it is more likely that you are not already familiar with this fun new slot from IGT. Well, allow us to be the opening act for this excellent slot featuring 5 reels, 25 paylines, and a whole lot of character.
Elvis the King has a number of interesting bonus features to keep you entertained: The first of these is the random expanded wilds. That’s right, on any given spin the second, third, or fourth reel may convert in into one large wild. Then there is an array of bonuses that is cleverly named after the king’s songs: the Heartbreak Hotel bonus, the All Shook up Bonus, and the Viva Las Vegas bonus (which awards free spins). These are activated by getting to the bonus round and then picking from the records laid out in front of you.
What is most striking about Elvis the King, however, is the game’s excellent graphics. They are not cutting-edge or new in any way, which is perfect for a game that harkens back to decades ago. Instead, the game embraces the classical, musical roots of its theme with an interface that could easily be confused for a jukebox and a collection of symbols that would even make Graceland jealous. Indeed, the icons here include various versions of the king in addition to his dancing shoes, jacket, and other paraphernalia.
To play Elvis the King, all you need to do is set the coin value and then click on the “spin” button. Yes, it really is as simple as that, partly because the number of paylines and credits per line in this game comes fixed beforehand. There is an autoplay function available for those of you looking to take it easy a bit.
