Elvis the King Lives is an online video slot game from WMS Gaming and is one of their slot games that has a very high variance. The slot has an unusual reel setup with a total of eleven reels and eighty pay lines. There is a pair of two by two reel sets where each position is an independent reel and on the right of them is a three by six reels set where the reels nine, ten and eleven are. The pay lines that begin on the two by two reel sets carry over to the three by six reel set as it takes three or more matching symbols to make a winning combination.
The King of Rock and Roll’s Symbols
Elvis the King Lives is based on the king of rock and roll himself and features his music played in the background and photographs of him. The symbols are represented by images based on song titles by Elvis and other paraphernalia that represented his life. Blue suede shoes; a purple teddy bear; a hound dog; a big hunk o’ love and a guitar are some of the themed symbols found on the reels. The reels also feature the high valued playing cards.
The Elvis the King Lives wild symbol is the one featuring the king himself. This symbol acts as a substitute for other symbols when it lands alongside two matching symbols and forms a winning combination. The only symbol the wild will not substitute for is the scatter symbol.
Elvis the King Lives Bonus Features
There are multiple ways to trigger the Elvis the King Lives free spins bonus feature. This is done with the symbols displaying the golden record which are the scatters. If four of these symbols land on reels one to four, reels five to eight or land on the nine, tenth and eleventh reels then five free spins are awarded with a 1x the stake cash prize.
Another way to trigger even more free spins is to land four of the scatter symbols on reels one to four, reels five to eight and land three scatters on reels nine; ten and eleven. When this happens a total of twenty free spins are awarded with a 100x the stake cash prize. Another five free spins are given when three scatters land on reels nine, ten and eleven during a free spin.
Before the free spins are awarded an Elvis the King Lives jukebox bonus feature is played to win extra free spins and multipliers. A jukebox will be displayed which features four different Elvis Presley songs including Hound Dog; Blue Suede Shoes; Big Hunk O’ Love and Teddy Bear.
Each song awards a different prize and whichever one that lands is the one that is awarded. The songs award cash prizes of 25x; 12x; 12 x and 8x the stake for Hound Dog; Blue Suede Shoes; Big Hunk O’ Love and Teddy Bear respectively. Additional extra free spins can also be won with Hound Dog offering the highest amount of ten and the other songs offering five.
