Elements: The Awakening Slot Review

Fire, earth, air, and water all came together to create life as we know it. What if we could travel back to those simpler times, the era of creation? Luckily for you, this is exactly what this NetEnt slot is all about. So quit stalling and hit the spin button!

The game’s visuals were carefully crafted in such a way that the four elements can seamlessly co-exist peacefully. At the corners of the background, you’ll see dry land, a river, a volcano, and a snowy mountain, all referring to the four elements. The reel set appears floating in the middle with the payline indicators located by its sides. The logo of the game can be seen at the top of the screen.

For the most part, the game works just like any other slot, the reels spin altogether and come to stop individually in consecutive order. However, instead of the round ending, after a winning spin, the winning symbols are destroyed while others take their place for a chance to form new winning combinations.

The modern take on such an ancient force like the four elements reminded us of another game that revolutionized an otherwise dull classic genre. We are referring to Fruit Warp by Thunderkick, an amazing slot we strongly advise you to check out. For now, let’s focus on the game in question.

How to Play Elements: The Awakening

The game consists of 3 rows and 5 reels with 20 fixed paylines. The controls are located below the reel set allowing players to adjust the bet size, enable the autoplay or max bet functions, check out the paytable, or simply initiate a spin!

As for the stakes, the minimum bet is $0.20 while the most you can bet is $100. Elements: The Awakening is a low to medium volatility title with a fairly high hit frequency so you can expect regular but mostly small wins to occur. The maximum exposure is 300,000 coins which translate to $150,000. The game’s RTP is 96.02%.

Elements: The Awakening features 4 low paying and 4 high paying symbols. They come in the form of the four elements while the more rewarding symbols are the anthropomorphic versions.

The game’s special symbols are:

  • Wild – The wild is represented by the cube symbol. It can only appear on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5. It substitutes for all symbols.

Game Rules

Elements: The Awakening Features

The minimalistic look of the game might confuse you at first, up to the point that you think this slot doesn’t have much going for itself. In reality, the game’s main core feature can activate a series of bonus modes. So, without further ado, let’s jump right into it!

Avalanche Meter

Located below the reel set, the avalanche meter increases by one level for each successive fall containing at least one payline win. The meter has 4 levels and the colors shown on it match the leading element in the current round.

Avalanche Meter
Energy Meter

The leading element is also displayed on the Energy Meter. The section with the most “energy” indicates which Free Falls mode will be awarded when the feature is triggered.

Just like the Avalanche Meter, the Energy Meter is divided into four sections, one for each element, which fill up after a winning spin. Each new base game spin starts with the Energy Meter being empty.

Energy Meter
Free Falls

4 or more consecutive avalanches activate one of the following Free Fall modes awarding 10 free spins:

  • Fire Storm Wild – Special wilds appear on reels 2, 3, and 4 and can expand to include reels 1 and 5. The Fire Storm Wilds can spread in any direction on the reels, transforming any two adjacent symbols into wilds.
  • Air Storm Wild – Special wilds fall randomly on the reels in the first free spin and remain there for the remainder of the feature. After the first free spin, the wilds move randomly to adjacent positions on the reels for each fall or avalanche.
  • Earth Storm Wild – Special wilds can appear on reels 2, 3, and 4. Earth Storm Wilds remain on the reels until they have been included in at least one winning payline, in three Avalanches, or until there aren’t any more wins.
  • Water Storm Wild – Special wilds can appear on reels 2, 3, and 4. Water Storm Wilds are expanding vertically to cover entire reels, transforming symbols into wilds.
