One of the games which I’d expect to be popular for the 2018 winter holidays is Selfie Elfie, the contender coming from Playtech. It’s going to be an online slot which will use fairly traditional graphics, though there are modern sides to it as well.
At its basis, you will discover this slot machine with 5 reels and with 40 active lines, which has exciting top wins to give away. The potential for a single round of Selfie Elfie is 500x the stake, or $250,000 cash. Moving on to its best features, those range from the wild symbol, to the scatter or the free spins.
Betting and Prizes
As for the rest of the game’s options, first of all you have the bet to pick, and there is a range of $0.10 to $500 to choose from. You spend as much as $12.50 for each line, but obviously you can go considerably lower as well.
The slightly disappointing part is that the top payout of the game is only 500x, which means up to $6,250 per winning combo, or up to $250,000 for filling the reels with wild symbols. There would be plenty of room for improvement in this one area, and so far I’d expect the game to be low volatility.
Selfie Elfie Slot Features
You will discover several features which look interesting, once Selfie Elfie has finished loading up. The wild is present, as is the scatter, free spins and re-spins.
First of all, you get the cool looking Elf, which the game marks as the Wild element. As such, you can take advantage of its presence in several ways. The most common one will be to have it replace some other symbol, and thus forming new wins for the round. It’s not a replacement for the scatter symbol, but for the regulars it works just fine. It may not be as common, but it’s even more valuable to have wilds create their own wins, since they pay the most in the game.
Have the Selfie Elfie logo appear, and you can get the free spins with its help. You do need it appearing on all three reels it is allowed on though, meaning the columns 1, 3 and 5. You will get 8 free spins this way, with Elfie’s Wheel present at the top for them. High symbols which take selfies with Elfie are turned into wilds. You can also win extra free spins, with the current wilds present.
Respins are also part of the game, and they can trigger at random. It starts with Elfie’s Wheel, which appears and gets you the respins. These are offered for each high symbol that manages to take a selfie with Elfie, which turns them into wilds for the upcoming respins.
Theme & Design
It’s the traditional theme that you’d expect for a Christmas themed game, for the most part. You have a rockstar like elf in the main role, and the action takes place inside someone’s regular home, but the rest of the symbols you’re seeing on the reels are either the Royals or the images of Santa, Mrs Santa, Rudolph, other elves and a Gingerbread Man. Graphics are excellent, I like how they’ve drawn the symbols, particularly the high paying ones.
I think that Selfie Elfie certainly has the potential to be a fun and popular release for the holidays, even with the relatively low 500x the stake top rewards which are offered inside.
