Ecuador Gold Slot

Slots adventurers have long enjoyed the cascading delights of NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest at Neon Jackpot. Now ELK Studios has unleashed its own South American quest for rich rewards from a cascade slot, and it’s a mission to uncover Ecuador Gold.


There’s a whiff of Tomb Raider and Raiders of the Lost Ark about the setting for Ecuador Gold’s six reels, placed as they are in a hidden, stone-hewn ancient temple. Those reels stand four symbols high and, in combinations with a Ways to Win rule, means every spin (or ‘symbol drop’ as ELK describes them for this game) creates 4,096 ways for the game’s symbols to carve out a winning combination.

That symbol set comprises twelve paying symbols – four low pay, four mid pay and four high pay – plus a Wild that can substitute for any of them and a free spins bonus Scatter. Ahead of turning our attention to free spins and other bonus treats in store on Ecuador Gold, we teased this as a cascade slot and indeed it is. ELK calls it its Avalanche feature, and you’ll find any symbols that participate in a win will explode to allow additional symbols to drop into vacated spaces. That process allows chain reactions of wins that can continue so long as new wins keep being formed!


Any spin in Ecuador Gold can also benefit from two bonus ways to pile wins in. First all paying symbols can crash this party in Super (2×2), Mega (3×3) or Epic (4×4) forms. Secondly, a Ghosting Wild can randomly visit any of the last four reels and on arrival wander around a random number of visible positions leaving a trail of extra Wilds in its wake. Spooky . . . and a welcome spectral visitor we can assure you.

Turning to the potential for free spins in this game, you’ll find three of more of the Bonus Scatters in view on any spin will trigger an exhilarating free ride. Between ten and twenty five free spins can be awarded, dependent on how many Bonus Scatters activate the feature, and these are enriched with some extra surprises for big wins. Within free spins any Wild that lands becomes sticky to stay in position until all free spins have been played, and that includes any Wilds gifted by the arrival of a Ghosting Wild. Better yet, you’ll find any win will add an extra row to the reels, bringing with it more Ways to Win in the process. Four additional rows can be added in this way, and should you get the maximum complement that translates into a staggering 262,144 Ways to Win on every remaining spin. Beat that Bonanza Megaways!


A Ways to Win slot with a cascade rule too is always going to get our love at Neon Jackpot, but ELK has done a particularly fine job with Ecuador Gold. The base game is a delight to play, but get into the free spins bonus and we think you’ll find an even deeper level in which pure gaming gold can be mined.
