DJ Wild is a new online slots game from ELK Studios. This is the first new game from this developer in quite some time, so Slots Temple is here to offer you an in-depth look at this recent release.

Theme

DJ Wild has a nightclub theme with vibrant graphics and an electronic soundtrack. All of the picture symbols are based on DJ equipment, like keyboards, headphones and mixers. The remaining symbol are fruit designed in a pixel art style.

We would have liked to see something a little different from these symbols, as they don’t really fit into the theme – but, it doesn’t take much away from the gaming experience.

Soundtrack

The soundtrack in DJ Wild is actually really impressive. It is the kind of music that you could listen to on an everyday basis. We’ve never seen an online slot with a soundtrack that isn’t either cheesy or non-existent. The picture symbols even light up in sync with the music, like the dancefloor in a nightclub or disco.

You can tell that the ELK Studios team has worked hard to create a music-themed slot that is immersive and engaging. And – if you really like the soundtrack, you can even buy it from iTunes!

Format

There are 20 paylines in DJ Wild, and there is a Win Both Ways format. This means that wins pay out both right-to-left and left-to-right for generous winning potential. Players can bet a wide range of wagers, so penny slots fans will be able to enjoy DJ Wild as well.

Bonuses

When the expanding DJ Wild symbol appears, the re-spin bonus is triggered. The wilds can expand both vertically and horizontally, for impressive winning potential.

The player will continue to earn re-spins as more wilds appear on the reels. The re-spin feature will end when no more wilds appear. This is the only bonus in the game, but it occurs quite frequently.

Betting Strategies

Like most ELK Studios online pokies, DJ Wild has built-in betting strategies. When activated, they will automatically adjust your bet based on the outcome of the previous spin. In DJ Wild, the betting strategies are:

  • The Booster: raises the bet after every losing spin, and resets when a win occurs.
  • The Leveller: raises the bet level by 2 after every 5 losses, and resets when a win occurs.
  • The Jumper: raises the bet every time a win occurs, and resets when a loss occurs.
  • Optimiser: bet level changes based on the percent of your balance.
