If you've ever been properly snockered, there's a good chance that you've seen the "pink elephant". These creatures usually come about when you're in a delirious state, giving you a hallucination that is nearly unrivalled. Thunderkick developed their Pink Elephants slot with this idea in mind, also bringing punters different mystical animals in a bright game that might just leave you feeling the same joy as when you have a few drinks with friends. Or maybe not.
Pink Elephants is a 5 reel, 4096 ways to win video slot that takes place in the plains of Africa, and includes an array of different critters as well as stone symbols. The symbols include 9, 10, J, Q, K, A, as well as a blue gopher, green gopher, yellow gopher with flower in hair, red gopher in tribal paint, and a pink elephant with terrifying eyes.
The terrifying pink elephant seems a bit off in a world as bright and cheerful as the one presented here. Still, the game does pack in some impressive bonus features, including wilds, stacked symbols, free spins, and scatters. There's also a bonus game where elephant orbs combine to potentially award you with an extra free spin in the free games round. These bonus features combine with the base game to give Pink Elephants a return to player percentage of 96.1%, which is comparable with most online slots you see these days.
The overall experience I had with Pink Elephants led me to believe that the game is more "meh" than great. The game's presentation is very nice, but the gameplay itself leaves something to be desired. The slot has a lot of dry spells in between wins, and the features are limited and therefore don't kick in very often. This can lead to boredom, and I was quickly on the move to look for a new slot to play that could bring a bit more excitement.
Still, Pink Elephants will likely find an audience. There are tons of people that love animals, and anything with critters is sure to draw an audience. I guess this game is for those folks, as anyone looking for a good slot to play will find much better choices from Thunderkick.
