Hit It Hard Slot Review

It might look like an old school fruity but there plenty going on in Hit It Hard, the sixth slot release in ELK Studios’ Classic Series. Highlights of this 3 reel, 5 payline slot include multiplier wilds which can boost payouts by up to 5x. If you don’t land a winner with your multiplier wild, it’s locked in place and a respin follows. Trigger the Roll the Dice Bonus game to win free spins with multipliers, a pachinko-style mini game or the Break the Bank Bonus worth some 2,500 times your total stake. Play this volatile title on all devices from between 20p and £100 per spin.

Classic fruity with a few twists

The action takes place on what looks like a classic cabinet fruit machine. On the bottom half of the screen you’ll find a 3 reel, 3 row, 5 payline machine made up of cherries, lemons, melons and green, blue and red lucky 7s. The red 7 is the most lucrative symbol. It pays 50 times your stake if you land 3 in a row.

Multiplier wilds & respins

You can boost your payouts courtesy of multiplier wilds that can hit on reel 3 only. These come with 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x boosts attached. If you land a multiplier wild but it doesn’t result in a winner, the wild locks in position and a respin is awarded in the Wild Respins feature.

Roll the Dice Bonus Game feature

The top half of the screen features a classic fruit machine trail bonus. To activate the trail in the Roll the Dice Bonus Game feature, you’ll need to land the dice symbol on the middle of reel 3. The dice symbol turns into a 10x multiplier wild. Then, you’ll work your way around the trail.

Depending on what square you land on, you’ll get a new roll of the dice, free spins on the reels below, a mini-game or break the bank. Various combinations of between 1 and 5 spins free spins combined with multipliers of up to 20x are on offer here. Land the maximum 20x multiplier from the board in combination with the 10x dice wild multiplier and a massive 200x boost is available. Here what else you can get from the board game:

  • Stacked Wilds feature - land on this square and you’ll get a spin with a stacked wild on reel 2, then a second with a stacked wild on reel 3 then finally a third with stacked wilds on both reels 2 and 3.
  • Wild Spins feature - this square awards 10 free spins with multiplier wilds guaranteed to land on each of them.
  • Lucky Ballz & Super Ballz features - you could also land 1 of 2 pachinko-style bonuses if you land on the appropriate square. Lucky Ballz offers 4 opportunities to land a guaranteed prize. Super Ballz – keep on firing balls until you find 2 that land the same figure. You’ll then win that prize.
  • Break the Bank feature - top of the bill as far as features go though is the Break the Bank feature. To land the prize worth 2,500 x your total stake, you’ll need to collect 2 key symbols (by landing on that square) then landing on the Bank square.
  • Power Run feature - hope to land a Power Run as this can supercharge your winning chances by awarding every feature you pass on a single roll. Land a 6 with this active and you’ll receive the awards from the 6 intervening squares.

Volatile gameplay

Looks can be rather deceptive in some slots and that’s the case with Hit It Hard. We were expecting a simple, old school fruity when we fired it up. There’s far more going on here than you might expect which makes it a good pick if you like plenty of variety.

It lives up to its name on the variance front too. This is a volatile slot with top payouts of 2,500 x your stake on each spin or free spin. The RTP stands at 96.3%. If you like classic fruit machines with plenty of extras, then you’ll want to give this a look. You should also try other slots in the Classic series with Hit It Big recommended.
