Bloopers Pokie Review
Bloopers is the new pokie from the gaming vendor Elk Studios. Elk is a small company that has just released a few games but this new pokie is quickly becoming one of my new favorites.
Bloopers is a 5 reel slot with 243 different ways of winning and is based around different staff around movie making such as the Stunt man, the make up artist the cutter, the fixer and finally the sound man. It is also those characters that bring you extra features in the bonus rounds which will be explained more further down.
The betting levels on Bloopers from Elk Studios range from 0,25 AUD to 100 AUD and as Elk Gaming previous pokies this one also have the pre defined betting strategies which helps you change your game play.
The different betting strategies that you can use are:
Optimizer – With this strategy your bets are based on a % of your balance and you can choose from 1%, 2%, 5% or 10%. If you would play with the 5% level and have a balance of 100 AUD your bet would be 5 AUD, if you then win 55 AUD on the spin your new balance would be 150 and your second bet would then be 7.5 AUD and so on.
Leveller – With the leveller strategy you choose a base bet and if you are have a cold streak and lose 5 spins in a row the bet will be increased by two levels, would you loose another 5 spins in a row your bet would automatically be increased another two levels. For each winning bet you have your are automatically lowered to you initial bet size. So if your initial bet is 5 AUD, after 5 lost spins in a row your limit would jump over 7.50 and your bet would be 10 AUD. If you lose another 5 spins it would jump from 10 bypass the 25 bet and your bet would be 50. So this strategy creates a lot of variation and a big bank roll is required.
Booster – The booster strategy is very similar to the leveller strategy, but instead of waiting 5 spins, it increase your betting value one level for each lost spin for a maximum of 4 times. Since the betting levels in Bloopers starts from 0.25, 0.50,0.75, 1, 2.50 after the 4th spin you would be betting 2.5 AUD a spin and it would reset the bet after a wining round.
Jumper – This strategy uses the Booster idea but increase your betting limit for each winning round, for a maximum of 4 times. After a loosing round your bet is reset to the starting value.
The game play of the slot is easy with great graphics and nice symbols that consist of wild symbols that replace all symbols except the bonus symbol. The Bonus symbol is in the form of a Hollywood Star of Fame and if you receive 3 or more of those the bonus game will start.
During the bonus round where you get free spins you will always activate the male of female movie star symbol that will act as sticky wilds on reel 2,3 or 4. Your free spins will continue until you have at least one sticky wild on one each on reel 2,3 and 4.
On top of that you can get up to 4 Bloopers that help you earn even more during your free spins. The Bloopers are in the form of the Stunt man, the make up artist the cutter, the fixer and finally the sound technician.
The Stuntman – Acts as extra expanding wilds.
The Make Up Artist – Gives you extra free spins
The Cutter – Will make you re run some reels to get better symbols
The Fixer – Shuffles the symbols to get better winning combinations
The Sound Technician – Gives you extra random wilds
All in all Elk Studios have released a great pokie with nice graphics, a great soundtrack and a very fun bonus round mode.
