Theme & symbols
The theme for DJ Wild is DJ’s and contemporary dance music, such as trance and house. All the symbols on the reels shine and sparkle, and makes us think of amazing dance events. They even bounce to the beat!
Some of the symbols that can appear on the reels come from the DJ’s tool box, e.g. big headphones and the mixer table. Fruit symbols are also utilized, while the five wild symbols are different versions of the game’s logo.
Unlike traditional slot machines, DJ Wild comes with Elk Studios special Betting Strategy Options. If you have played The Lab slot from Elk, you’re familiar with the concept. Instead of adjusting coin value, deciding how many paylines to activate and finally how many coins to bet per active payline, you simply select your total wager on DJ Wild.
Then, you can also select one of several betting strategies – if you want to. On DJ Wild, you have four different ones to chose among, including The Optimizer which Elk Studios premiered on this very slot.
If you activate this betting strategy, the size of your wager will automatically increase two steps (according to the wager plan) if you experience five spins in a row without any win.
If you activate the Booster betting strategy, the size of your wager will increase by one step (according to the wager plan) after each spin where you won nothing.
This is the opposite of the booster. With the Jumper, your wager will increase in size by one step after each winning spin.
With the Optimizer, the size of the wager will be a certain percentage of your current balance in the slot machine. Therefore, the size of wager will automatically go up and down as the size of your balance changes.
DJ Wild has a fixed 50,000 credit jackpot.
To win it, you need to get a Jackpot Wild symbol on the middle reel.
Expanding wild symbols with re-spins
DJ Wild is aptly named – this game has no less than FIVE different wild symbols.
If you get one of the horizontal wilds, it will expand horizontally. If you get one of the vertical wilds, it will expand upwards and downwards on the reel.
Each time you get an expanding wild, you get a re-spin with the expanded wilds in place, to give you one more chance to win. Get a new expanding wild? Then you get another re-spin. This way, it is possible to win many times on a single wager.
