Have you noticed how “Elvis is Alive” stories have become extinct? We suppose that 40 years after the death of the “King,” that we’re all done making up conspiracies about the man faking his own demise and such; hell, the due with be 80+ nowadays and the only pelvic movements he and his handlers would find noteworthy are those taking the bones out of joint. In any case, Elvis lives on in online casino game form in WMS Gaming’s slot game Elvis: The King Lives, an intriguing game recalling Elvis’s music and inevitable iconic stature in ‘Vegas.
Weird, no? The design of the Elvis: The King Lives slot game may be described as an 8-reel slot or even an 11-reels slot, but essentially the reels are comprised of a 2x2 grid and a 3x6 grid. The simplest possible win hits when two like symbols are adjacent on the 6-reel side plus at least a like symbol or wild in reel 1 of the 2-2 grid.
After the low-paying A, K, Q and J symbols – which we won’t complain about, given Elvis’s serious presence in Las Vegas during the final third of his career – the slot symbols in Elvis: The King Lives all harken back to Presley’s most well-known hits: Check out the pair of blue suede shoes, the teddy bear, the hound dog --- you get the idea.
Naturally, Elvis himself is the wild symbol (and he’s the Young Elvis; that’s a joke for all kids of the 80s out there). A bonus feature symbol is labelled as such and rewards as detailed directly below.
And how! Up to 20 free spins plus 100x (!) cash payout may be won in the Elivs: The King Live slot game. Several ways to trigger free spins are provided; mostly, the reward depends on where the special symbols land. Getting four bonus feature symbols in adjacent reels wins five free spins. If four such symbols land on the smaller reels at the same time three of the four spaces on the 2x2 grid are filled with bonus feature symbols, that’s worth 20 free spins with the 100x payout.
Before the free games are launched, the “Jukebox Bonus” is in effect. More or less a “pick ‘em” game, the virtual jukebox will randomly select one of four Elvis Presley hits. If “Hound Dog” plays, that’s another 10 free spins to enjoy.
And just to fatten things up further, all bonus feature symbols become sticky wilds for the remainder of free spins. Even if only five freebies are in play, the lucky player stands to rake in some serious coinage.
You can play this slot machine for a s little as ½¢ per payline per spin, or up to $1, thereby making total bets per spin on the Elvis: The King Lives slot carry a price tag of 40¢ to $80 per spin. Of course, you can also enjoy the Elvis slot right here at Casino Canada for absolutely free for as long as you’d like.
Has Elvis left the building? Yes, folks. Elvis has indeed left the building.
