Electric Sam is the first of two slot machines designed and developed by ELK Studios starring Sam. There is something very gnome-like about the title character but has proven to be loveable enough to warrant his own franchise. Electric Sam was the original game of the two and is played over a 5-reel, 243 ways to win payline structure. The slot machine costs anything from 20p per spin right up to £100 per spin, which is dirt cheap given the number of lines you get to play with. Electric Sam carries a top non-progressive jackpot which is capped at a hearty 300x your total bet.
Keep your eyes peeled for the Electric Sam logo. This is the slot machine’s wild symbol and as a wild, it can substitute for all other symbols in the game, barring golden bell scatters. Special wilds can also be found in the slot’s free game feature.
Those scatter icons can trigger a free spins bonus in the slot when 3 or more appear on the reels. Simply land 3, 4 or 5 scattered bell icons in any position on the reels, and you will start the free game feature with a total of 5, 10 or 15 free spins under your belt, respectively.
The free spin bonus round in Electric Sam is far more than your typical, run-of-the-mill set of free games. Mini features can be offered during the bonus. These include sticky wilds (Sam) on the second to fifth reels which remain in place for the duration of the bonus, and multipliers (Sandra) issuing multipliers which range from 1x up to 10x. Lastly, Maggie acts as an exploding symbol, destroying nearby fruit symbols and replacing them with others from above the reels, giving you multiple chances to win on a single spin.
With a decent RTP rate of 96%, a fair non-progressive jackpot and dirt-cheap bets, there isn’t really anything not to like about this slot. Electric Sam continues to impress, today, even after its more successful sequel slot was released last year by ELK Studios.
