ELK Studios’ dystopian demolition fights its way to SOTW prize

With nightmarish inhabitants and constant surveillance, ELK Studios’ post-apocalyptic wasteland has depicted the aftermath of nuclear war in a colourful style as its latest slot title Propaganda claims our Slot of the Week award. 

As a 6×6 reel slot, Propaganda uses cluster pays to provide payouts that are enhanced by a progressive multiplier that increases with each cascading win. The game is a high-volatility title with an RTP of 95 per cent.

This game uses cluster pays, meaning wins are formed by a minimum of five identical symbols landing together, vertically or horizontally, on the same spin. 

Cascading wins are also used, meaning that symbols included in winning clusters will be removed from the reels, making way for new symbols to drop in to increase the win potential of an already successful spin. 

These cascading wins will also increase a multiplier above the reels, increasing it by the value of symbols that were involved in the winning cluster. This multiplier will then be applied to any subsequent wins, increasing with each additional cascade. 

Symbols are represented by colourful flowers, planets, doves and slightly less peaceful objects of nuclear bombs and hand-grenades. Depending on the amount of identical symbols that land in a winning cluster, these will offer respective payouts ranging from x0.05 to x50. 

Wild text symbols can drop into play, substituting for all symbols other than the bonus scatters. These wilds can appear with multiplier values between x2 and x10 that will be applied to any winning clusters that they help to form. 

Additionally, smiley face bonus drop symbols can land on the reels, triggering the free spins game mode if three or more land on the reels at once. If one of these bonus drop symbols land as a golden super bonus drop, then the super bonus free spins game will be activated. 

During the free spins game mode, the cascading win multiplier will keep its increasing value for the entirety of the free spins. Bonus plus one, two and three symbols can drop on the reels, increasing the number of free spins by their respective value. 

Randomly during the base game, the wild strike feature can be activated. This randomly replaces standard symbols with wild or wild multiplier symbols. With the super bonus free spins mode, wild strikes are guaranteed to land on every free spin.
