Pink Elephants Review
Thunderkick has a fantastic reputation for producing bright, colourful slots with their own unique take on some of the most popular themes.
We love the twists and turns their journeys bring and the big wins that are up for grabs with the majority of those titles. Pink Elephants is a decent attempt at the safari/African adventure niche, but it certainly isn't their best effort to date.
We never have any complaints about Thunderkick’s design ethos - it's got to be big, bold and slightly off the wall. Pink Elephants doesn't disappoint on this front. They were trying to capture the essence of a weird and wonderful hallucinogenic journey and they nailed it.
There are some fantastic touches that slots fans will appreciate, including the music. This trippy mix of sitars and bongos completes the adventure perfectly.
While the game's design sets this slot up perfectly to be an absolute cracker, the mechanics have kind of dragged it back down. There are wild symbols available during the base game but other than that, it's simply a case of waiting for scatter symbols to arrive.
The mystery feature will do little to distract you from the long-anticipated free spins as all they do is trigger the feature. It needed a little something else.
This game features extremely high volatility and won't release those free spins easily. With the big wins available during the bonus round, be prepared to spend a long time waiting for substantial payouts to replenish your balance.
However, there are 4096 win ways, so there’s always a good chance of watching smaller wins roll in from time to time. 8,200x stake might not be enough for some big spenders to be enticed towards a game of this variety. If you do tackle Pink Elephants, make sure you plan your budget carefully.
As far as a standard slot goes, there is plenty to like about this production from Thunderkick. Pink Elephants presents an imaginative take on a popular theme and as always, this studio produces some of the highest-quality graphics. It also looks amazing on all devices, including mobiles.
The main issue we have is with the base game being a little uneventful and the extremely high volatility only adding to the waiting game. It's all about the free spins, and you may well be there for quite some time trying to trigger them.
