Elk Studios introduces the 5 reel and 15 fixed paylines slot The Lab where the symbols consists of sparkling coloured crystals and metal elements that form the basis for wealth, as well as molecules that form the basis for life. Metaphorically, the lab is in effect nature and the slot offers you a chance at creating some wealth of your own, and like a vortex pulling in up to 46,000 coins!
Surreal sound and setting
The background music lulls you into a sense of peace and tranquillity with the subtle sound of a spinning reel. The serenity is broken only by the sound of music and effects triggered by winning paylines! Supporting the mood is a spinning vortex drawn in pretty shades of red and purple, sucking in all that comes too close. The metallic elements gold and platinum and life-giving molecules water and oxygen form the lower end of the payout scale. The four crystal molecules differentiated by colour progressively increase in size for the higher end of the payout scale.
Spinning vortex which helps you win free spins
When The Lab symbol appears on the middle space on the 2nd reel it is essentially caught in the animated background vortex and triggers the sliding reels and 10 free spins with the possibility of being awarded 1 or 2 more free spins during each round! During this feature all winnings are doubled. The Lab wild logo symbol may appear on any reel and can act as a substitute for any symbol when appearing in the free spins feature. The X-scatter symbol acts as a 2x multiplier of wins for each instance that it appears and does not need to be part of a winning payline.
A soothing game that pulls you in!
The bet sizes range from €0.15 or €0.01 per payline all the way up to €90 or €6 per payline with a low to medium variance. The developer stated the theoretical return to player (RTP) is 96.30%. This is definitely one of the more mellow games I've played with just the right amount of sound effects and music and that's a good thing. I think if you give this game a try you might find your self being pulled in as I was.
