Hit It Big is a retro-themed video slot brought to you by Swedish software provider ELK Studios. The quirky game comes packed with different bonus features that will boost your winning chances on each spin. While it takes $0.20 to set the reels in motion for a chance to win, a maximum possible payout stands at 2,500x your total stake.
When we said a retro-themed video slot, we really meant it. Not only that the quirky title using a 5x3 layout offers 5 paylines only, but it also features traditional slot symbols. They land on plain white reels looking like ones you would see in a one-armed bandit, which adds to the game’s retro feel. Just like other ELK titles, this one offers a simple to use interface. All you have to do before you set the reels in motion is to choose a total stake per spin. It can be anywhere between $0.20 and $100. The slot also offers four ELK betting strategies that will adjust the stake for you based on your win and loss statistics. Up to 100 automatic spins are available as well.
The reels are home to single, double and triple bars and lucky 7s in different colours. Lucky 7s are the most rewarding symbols in the game. To get paid, you need to land 3 or more icons of a kind left to right on one of the 5 paylines. As you spin the reels, you will notice different buttons below and above the grid. Once two matching buttons appear above and below the reels, one of the bonus features will be triggered. The Win feature boosts your wins with a multiplier of between 2x and 50x, Respin awards a respin providing you with another winning chance, the Stacked Wilds feature adds a stack of Wilds to the respective reel while the Locked Wilds feature grants 3 respins with stacked Wilds locked in the reels 1 and 5.
As for special symbols, the game features Wild with a golden crown which only replaces regular symbols. Another special symbol is the logo of the game. Hit It Big Scatter triggers the bonus game of the same name played on a 5x5 layout at 3 levels. You need to push the red Stop button to reveal a multiplier. If the Bandit symbol stays behind, you are get paid. If you hit an arrow pointing inwards, you will move to the next level and towards the centre screen. On the other hand, an arrow pointing outwards will get you back to the outer circle. Try to get to the Hit It Big bonus level where multipliers go up to 1,000x your bet. If you hit the Bandit symbol, the bonus game ends.
A novel idea which is skillfully delivered, that’s how we would describe the Hit It Big slot. ELK Studios managed to turn a retro game in a highly innovative title that will keep you entertained for a while. If you get lucky, you can hit up to 2,500x your bet in a single spin. This is a high volatility slot with an RTP of 96%.
