WMS has not exactly been original or unique when it comes to the theming of this video slot. Elvis happens to be the premise of many video slots in the market. In fact, WMS themselves have another video slot that is also based on Elvis’ life and music, called Elvis the King Lives. Therefore, if you were looking for a rare theme, then Elvis Lives slot may not be the right choice for you.
However, Elvis is the King of Rock and arguably one of the most popular musicians/singers to ever. Therefore, it is perfectly fitting that there are many video slots based on the great Elvis Presley, as there are movies, documentaries, video games, etc. If you have a thing for Elvis, his sideburns and his music, WMS’ Elvis Lives slot has a lot to offer.
This slot is a five-reel slot with 12 rows. Given this grid, you could be looking at plenty of stacked symbols and lots of opportunities to land high value symbols.
The base game is pretty ordinary and even a little eventless at times. However, once you get into one of the four bonus rounds, the fun and the winning never ceases.
Even though this is one of the newer Elvis-themed slots in the market, WMS have actually managed to retain that retro, classic look across the board. The five-reel, 12-row grid makes for a taller set reel area than most slots. To the left of the reel area, you have the words ‘ELVIS LIVES’ up in red lights. To the right of the reel area, you have an image of the legend himself during performance, with a mic in his left-hand and wearing a flawless all-white suit.
Towards the bottom right, you have the interactive slot controls. Your total bet is displayed on the dashboard and there are provisions on either side of the total bet to increase or decrease your stake. Once you have configured your bet, simply click on the spin button which will set the reels spinning. Once the reels are spinning, the spin button becomes a red stop button which you can press to stop the reels and see what you landed on the reels.
You can also set up the auto spin feature where the reels will spin automatically. Just choose the number of times you want to auto spin and click on start. You can pre-set auto spins of 10, 50, 100 and 200.
The symbols that you will see in this slot include the J, the Q, Couple of symbols of Elvis in action, a mic, a flower and more.
Elvis Lives slot can pay really high in one of the bonus rounds. How much you win will also depend on your stake of course. You can set your stake from anywhere between 0.50 per spin all the way up to 100 per spin. The highest amount you can win on a single spin will of course be possible only when you use the highest possible bet or stake of 100 coins.
In terms of the return to player percentage this game has an RTP of 95.72%, which is not bad but could have been higher. This essentially means that for every $100 wagered on the slot, $95.72 will be paid back as winnings to players over time. Elvis Live slot is a high volatile slot, which basically refers to the risk involved. A high volatile slot means that the game could possibly payout a large number of big wins within a short period of time. These are more exciting than low volatile slots where you win smaller amounts, more frequently, but nothing big enough to really get excited over. It all depends on a player’s personal preference and game strategy whether they want a high volatile slot or a low volatile slot. But if you want something action packed and exciting, a high volatile slot like Elvis Lives is the way to go.
The highest you can possibly win is during one of the bonus rounds where you can win a whopping 2000 times your total bet. Therefore, the maximum jackpot you can hit in a spin during this bonus round is 2000 times the max bet per line which is 100 coins – 200,000 coins! A maximum jackpot of 200,000 coins is not bad for a slot which is not a progressive jackpot.
The Elvis Lives bonus is elusive but the most rewarding of all bonus rounds available in this game. This is the bonus round in which you could potentially win up to 2000 times your bet value and grab the maximum jackpot of 200,000 coins. During this bonus round an alternate reel set is activated. When you land Elvis Lives symbols on these reels, it is very good news. Landing all 10 Elvis Lives Symbols will result in a win of 2000 times your total bet.
You get 7 free spins in this bonus round and the symbol to look for during this round is the wandering wild symbol. It even comes along with a 2x multiplier at times.
In this bonus round, you get 5 free spins to use. If you happen to land 3 extra wilds during one of these free spins, you trigger a multiplier of 2x, 3x or ever 5x. You can even get scatters during this round. Landing a multiplier and a scatter at a same time will result in big wins.
Pick from jumpsuit gems to reveal what prizes you won. How much you win will depend on the level. Level 1 has 0.02x – 5x, level 2 offers 0.02x – 15x and level 3 offers 0.02x – 20x.
WMS’ Elvis Lives slot is compatible on iOS mobile devices like iPhones and iPads, on Android mobile devices from companies like Samsung, OnePlus, Google, etc. and also on certain Windows mobile devices. However, given the 5 reel x 12 rows grid, we advise that you play this slot on your mobile in landscape mode because there is just too much to cram into the phone when in portrait mode. Since this game will work directly on your web browser, you do not need to download any app specifically to play this game.
This is a decent Elvis-themed slot from WMS. The theme may not be very unique, but the grid and the bonus features are. The Elvis Lives bonus is the most rewarding and hence also the most elusive. If you are a fan of Elvis’ music, you are going to have a good time spinning the reels at this video slot. Good ol’ rock n roll lives on with this slot.
