In probably the most eccentric, or quirky theme and setting that I’ve come across in my experience of playing and reviewing online slots, Electric Sam – a game produced by Elk Studios – is based upon a troll and his family, who live in the forest and appear to have a bizarre obsession with electricity. This cartoon-style online slot game features 5 reels, 243 ways to win and a jackpot of 200,000 coins. The game is packed with trolls, fairy lights and peculiar animations.
The main character is Electric Sam (the troll), and his wife and daughter also feature: Sandra and Maggie. These three characters make up the higher value reel symbols. The lower value symbols are brightly-lit neon symbols: 7, cherries, a watermelon slice, a plum and a lemon.
The Electric Sam logo is the wild, and substitutes for all symbols apart from the bell, which is the scatter symbol. 3, 4 or 5 Scattered bells landing on the reels will trigger 5, 10 or 15 free spins respectively.
During free spins, the main feature of the game – the ‘electric treats’ can be triggered. Land 3 or more Sam icons on the reels during free spins, he turns electric and replaces a randomly chosen symbol with a stacked wild. This feature doesn’t just occur with Sam, however – land 3 or more Sandras during free spins and she will kindly award some fantastic multipliers, while landing 3 or more Maggies during free spins and she will stimulate a chain of symbols to implode! This results in the vanished symbols being replaced with new symbols, and possibly resulting in further wins.
Finally, Electric Sam offers the player a choice of betting strategies. These include the Booster, where your bet is automatically raised after a loss, the Leveller, where your bet is automatically raised after 5 consecutive losses, or the Jumper, where your bet is raised following a win.
Electric Sam filled me with wonder and amusement; the theme is totally quirky and outstanding. The game itself is enjoyable – not the best by Elk Studios (that title has to go to Taco Brothers!) – but entertaining nonetheless. The electric treat features give the free spins games a little added excitement at least, and are triggered quite frequently, which is always a good thing.
