ELK Studios Casinos
ELK Studios was founded in 2012. This was the time when iGaming software and developers already took steps towards making their platform and content mobile ready. Not to miss out on the new age of gaming ELK Studios concentrate all their efforts to building mobile casino games with a human touch. Operating from Stockholm, Sweden, they have already achieved a lot.
The software's website is bare of any news to keep track of their latest achievements. What they do present, however, is the mobile games that they’ve built over the years. Being a mobile gaming developer the games are built in HTML5, so they are compatible with most iOS and Android devices. With sharp graphics they also work and look brilliantly on tablets.
The most innovative feature that has come from ELK Studios to date is the Betting Strategies one. This may be the main reason for their success and fan base. Instead of using traditional betting options that are limited to bet lines and coinage, this Scandinavian developer came up with something much more interesting.
As they write on their site: “A betting strategy is a predefined betting pattern that automatically changes the bet level depending on a set of rules”. So what are the rules? Well, there are 3x types of them – among the normal one – so let’s review each one separately.
What this betting strategy does is raise a stake on a win. The bet will increase whenever you trigger a winning combo. This will only reset to the base level of your choice when you hit a losing round. This in turn increases the leverage and allows you to win more than you would normally with a smaller stake.
This is similar to the above as it increases the total bet one step after every loss until reaching 4 levels above base level. For example, you play with .60 credit bet and have the max bet capped at 6.00 credits, so after you've lost 4 times in a row that will be your default bet until you trigger a win.
Fancy the opposite tactic? Leveller allows you to do just that by increasing the bet 2 steps after 5 concurrent losing rounds. Only when you hit a win the bet will be reset to the base level.
In each case the player can set the minimum limits to his liking in the menu very quickly.
One of the biggest disadvantages so far is that ELK Studios only has a handful of games. These are the football themed Champion's Goal, The Lab and perhaps the most popular of them all Electric Sam. The latter comes with sticky wilds, multipliers, imploding symbols and one adorable troll theme that takes you deep into the woods.
You can find pretty much all of the creations at online casinos like LeoVegas, Slots Million, Guts, Mr Green and JackpotLuck. Feel free to sample them for free whenever you want.
