ELK Studios was founded in 2012. It is a Swedish developer of online casino games that has a focus on the mobile market. They aim to produce a small amount of very high quality games each year, and they have certainly been doing so since the company was founded. The company calls itself a “mobile first studio” and as such, recognises that games need to be fast to load on mobile devices but at the same time, the company uses the latest technologies to ensure that it does not have to sacrifice on the quality of graphics. Furthermore, they utilise “groundbreaking mathematics” to refine the game models and help make them even more engaging.
There is no disputing ELK Studios’ success. The company won the Game of the Year award at the EGR Operators Award 2017 for the slot Wild Toro. In November 2019, the company was listed in nineteenth position in the Deloitte Fast50 Sweden and it came ninth in DI Gasell as one of the fastest growing companies in Sweden.
ELK Studios are focused on the development of online slots and release a number of new titles each year. While they may be slots-centric, the company regularly innovates and they have also begun providing operators with tools to help them attract and retain players.
So far, ELK Studios have released just over 40 different slots. While this may not be a huge catalogue, it is far from the smallest around and each of the games brings something new. The games have a truly enjoyable range of themes that includes many of the classics, such as history and the supernatural, as well as slightly unusual themes such as Ivanhoe and tacos.
The company has developed a truly helpful feature for players called Betting Strategies. As many players will change the size of their bet according to the outcome of previous rounds, the company looked for a way to automate this. A Betting Strategy is a predefined betting pattern that automatically changes the bet level depending on a set of rules. A player can change or turn off the betting strategy after any bet. For instance, it can automatically increase the bet after a win, reduce it after a loss, or increase it after multiple losing rounds to try to recapture the lost money in one or two spins. It is fully customisable and a truly powerful tool when used properly, especially when utilised together with autoplay functionality.
In regards to the games themselves, there are many popular titles. For instance, the game Bloopers has a Hollywood theme and brings a number of characters to the reels for a truly hilarious adventure. It offers free spins with sticky wilds, and each of the five Bloopers characters offers its own bonus feature that can trigger on any spin.
ELK Studios brought these characters back to the reels in the slot Platooners. This time the characters are playing soldiers engaged in jungle warfare. It is a bonus packed game that has the potential to reward players with up to 250,000 coins on every single spin.
One of the studio’s latest slots, Dreamzone, transports players to a state beyond time and place. It features cluster pays, has a free drops bonus game with increasing payout multipliers, and players can collect Dream Features and level up to try to win multipliers of up to x512.
With over 40 games in the catalogue to explore, all of them extremely high quality, players are sure to love getting to know ELK Studio’s collection.
ELK Studios is fully aware of the importance of mobile gaming and they make it the priority with all of their releases. This means that the games are developed using HTML5 so that they can be played with ease on the vast majority of mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets. Players will not have to install any software or apps, they can just open the games in a web browser and start playing straightaway. Of course, the games are similarly easy to play on desktop devices.
While ELK Studio do not develop casino platforms, they have created ELK Compete. This is a player engagement tool that allows casinos to set players challenges to complete within specific slots for additional rewards. It allows casino to run individual challenges as well as multiplayer tournaments. It provides instant visual gratifications to players for achieving point milestones, top positions and hitting big wins. Players will display their achievements and follow progress through the in-game flow and leaderboard. Operators are also able to reward players with free spins, bonuses, and so on.
ELK Studios is a truly impressive developer that despite its small size has made its presence felt within the industry. A huge amount of care goes into every release and while they may have a small portfolio, it is truly impressive. The company has already won awards for its hard work and based upon the last few years, it looks set to continue going from success to success for many years to come.
