Visually, the game adopts a futuristic theme, set against the soaring towers of an urban landscape, complete with neon lights in the darkness. The music is also science-fiction themed with a hint of an epic soundtrack.

The symbols include luminous rocks, credit cards and the game’s hero, the cyborg who must hunt down the strange beast. The lowest paying symbols include the different coloured credit cards which offer between 90 coins and 150 coins for 5 in a row. The luminous rocks are the higher paying symbols, offering between 160 coins and 300 coins for 5 of a kind.

Some of the games main features include:

  • VERTICAL LASER – score more wilds when a laser beam hits the reel above the winning combination. A wild will be blasted into view, allowing for some big wins.
  • KAIJU BATTLE SPINS - this is the pièce de résistance of the game. Activated by 3 of the cyborg on reels 2,3 and 4, you will be awarded 7 free spins. With each spin, you will face an opponent in the form of one of the onscreen gems. Your aim is to blast these with the vertical laser and eliminate each of the hotspots. A laser is created by scoring 3 of the same symbol which creates a vertical line, aka your laser. A wild reel will also form on the reel above as well as the reel expanding. An expanded reel will also grant you one free spin and one free wild. In total, you could win up to 12 free spins.
  • BETTING STRATEGIES – exclusive to Elk games, you can also take your pick from a variety of different betting options. These include the optimizer, leveller and the booster whose perks include raising the bet 2 levels after 5 losses and changing the bet level automatically.
