The first ever television game show was broadcast in the UK more than eighty years ago, creating what has become one of the most popular TV genres in the world. The only down side with TV game shows is that only a tiny percentage of people will ever get to participate in them as contestants, but a new online slot game from Elk Studios is changing all of that by giving every player a chance to Hit It Big.
A Big Slot with a Big Format
One of the first things that will strike you when you open the Hit It Big title is its format. The slot part of the game has five reels, three rows and five pay lines, but the game screen itself is ten rows high. The top five rows are reserved for in-game messages and the Bonus Game, and the two ‘extra’ rows above and below the main reels make it possible for you to trigger multipliers, stacked wilds, respins and more.
The whole presentation of Hit It Big is wonderfully retro, with bold neon-style colours and flashy animations. Game symbols include a variety of 7’s and BAR’s (green, blue, red, triple, and so on) a Wild crown and a Hit It Big logo, which serves as a scatter. As for audio, the only way to describe it is superb, with audience sound effects providing a genuine game show atmosphere and an actual game show host providing commentary as you play.
Every spin of the reels in this game can trigger special reel features, including stacked wilds, locked wilds, multipliers of between 2x and 50x, and a respin. You won’t be in any doubt about when you have triggered any of these features (something that is achieved by matching the feature symbols above and below the main reels) because it will be announced by the game show host as well as displayed on the large display section of the game.
Big Screen Bonus Game
Get three Hit It Big logos on the reels at the same time and you will launch the Bonus Game. This takes place on the five by five display grid above the main reels, and the aim is to work your way from an outer square of symbols to the centre square, collecting prizes on the way. Land on a Bandit symbol and the Bonus Game will end there, but if you reach the Hit It Big square in the centre and you will win a spin paying anything from 100x to 1000x times your bet.
Will You Hit It Big?
It is always nice to see a slot game which sets itself apart from the rest and Hit It Big does exactly that. If you have ever harboured secret - or even not-so-secret - dreams of being on a television game show, playing this game could be just what you need to scratch that itch and potentially win big at the same time.
