Visitors by Elk Studios

They’re here…!!! The age-old question of whether aliens exist or not has finally been answered. Aliens exist! What’s more, they have traveled thousands of light-years to get to Earth. Unfortunately, instead of meeting the people of the Earth, they appear to be far more interested in abducting our poor livestock. Do these aliens have a taste for beef…? Or it could be something far more sinister? Ready or not here they come!

Join us now as we join forces against the Alien invasion, and take a closer look at this new space-themed slot from Elk Studios, aptly named Visitors.

Visitors offer wild substitutions, three respin modes that come with different modifiers, and also an Alien Invasion bonus game that is played with 25 mini reels to collect multipliers of up to x4,096 and wins of up to 10,000 times your bet.

Let’s take a closer look at this fantastic video slot by the Swedish studio.

Visitors – what you need to know

Visitors bring us the usual fantastic quality that we’ve come to know and expect from ELK Studios. There are plenty of features to be found in this slot to keep players highly entertained. The game uses an excellent math model,  and, what’s more, you can win up to 10,000x your stake. Visitors are amongst some of the highest paying games in the ELK Studios catalog. While the base game antics may make this game feel much less volatile than it is, the concept of the doubling frame multipliers is a great idea and is also quite innovative, it helps to build up extreme excitement when you’re on a winning streak.


PROS:

  • The bonus round features doubling frame multipliers up to 4,096x.
  • High volatility.
  • 10,000x max win potential.

CONS:

  • Attempting to build large multiplier frames that don’t win can be irritating.
  • Bonus rules are a little bit complex.

Visitors – Theme and background

The Visitors is an alien-themed video slot featuring a small town that is in the process of experiencing a large-scale invasion by visitors from space. The game features cartoon-style graphics that are bright and colorful that suit the game as overall it has a feel-good factor as the aliens are friendly and mischievous, even though they are there to invade.

On the reels, we have low-paying symbols that consist of 10, J, Q, K, and A royals, while the high-paying symbols are represented by 4 different colored houses and fountains. The red clock house symbol is the highest paying and will pay out 5x, 10x, or 15x the stake for landing 3, 4, or 5 in combination. The flaming wild symbol is the wild and substitutes for any other paying symbol.

Visitors – Gameplay

The Visitors slot features 5 reels, 5 rows, and 3,125 ways to win. Landing 3 – 5 matching symbols on successive reels, at any position, starting from reel 1 will result in a win.

Bets range from between 0.20 to 100 per spin and the game has an RTP of 96.1% which is about average. The hit frequency of 22.6% means that just under 1 in 4 spins will result in a winning combination.

Visitors is a medium to high variance slot, with ELK Studios classing Visitors as 8/10 on the volatility scale. This may all be average, nevertheless, the game does offer large potential wins with the maximum payout being 10,000x your total stake per spin.

Landing 2 respin symbols on reels 1 and 5 will activate the Visitors re-spin feature awarding you 2 out of the 3 possible rewards. The rewards you receive depends on the color of the aliens’ eyes of the symbols that were landed. These are as follows:

  • Big o Beam (Green-eyed alien): The paying symbol expands up to a 3×3 and will stay for the duration of the respin.
  • Abduction (Yellow-eyed alien): Activating this feature rewards you with a win multiplier of up to x15.
  • Alien Attack (Purple-eyed alien): Activating this feature will reward you with several sticky wilds.

Visitors – Free spins

Landing 3 scatters on the same spin will activate The Alien Invasion bonus round. While in the free spins round, you will not be able to land any of the regular symbols. Instead, you will only be able to land blanks, or silver and golden UFOs on the 5×5 playing grid.

You start with 5 free spins, however, it is possible to get extra spins as you progress. If you land a silver UFO you will be awarded 1 extra spin, plus a 2x multiplier frame will be added to the reel position. Landing a new silver UFO within the frame will cause the multiplier value to double, and you will be awarded 1x for every silver UFO that you land. What’s more, the multiplier frames can go as high as 4,096x your stake. To achieve that multiplier you will need to land 12 silver UFOs in the multiplier frame, but not to worry as you still have the golden UFOs to help you achieve this goal. The golden UFO does not pay anything at all, what it does do though is it doubles the multiplier value of all visible frames. It is also possible for these multiplier frames to merge vertically if they touch on the reels.

The feature only comes to an end once you have run out of spins, or you manage to hit the maximum win of 10,000x your stake.

Visitors – My verdict

This is a fantastic video slot! Visitors have it all, there are plenty of bonus features, as well as plenty of potential for some big wins. The visuals and audio are also excellent adding to the overall fun experience of the game.

If you want to win big with this slot, the key is to land as many of the silver and golden UFOs in the free spins as you can, as these increase the win multiplier up to 4,096x. This is the most likely way you will manage to reach wins near the 10,000 x stake maximum. Overall this game has a winning formula, I highly recommend it.
