About The Lab
The Lab is a psychedelic slot game by Elk Studios that puts you in the role of a chemist, better said alchemist, who is discovering the secrets of the universe through the elements.
Can you find your way through the wormhole and access the riches that lie beyond in the free spins game with sliding reels?
The Lab introduction, including RTP and variance
The game is played on a 3×5 reel set with 15 paylines, so at least that is something standard if the theme is already far removed from anything considered ordinary.
This slot game’s theoretical return to player (RTP) is 96.30%, a value Elk Studios use often. The variance is medium to high.
Gameplay and paytable
The game uses ten symbols, and they are firmly divided into two groups.
The lesser group are the elements Gold, Platinum, Oxygen, and Water.
These don’t pay much, and neither does the first member of the high-paying group, the Pink Crystal. Purple Crystal pays a bit better, and it’s the Blue and Green Crystals that are by far the best-paying symbols in the game.
There is also a Wild and a Scatter that will appear only after the free spins game.
The Lab bonus features
The vortex in the background of the reels is continuously at the center of reel 2. And that’s the spot where the Lab Wild symbol needs to land for you to enter the free spins game. Your success in the game will significantly depend on what you had on reels 1, 2, and 3 at the moment when you triggered the game.
Of course, you will have one Wild that triggered the game, and other symbols will fill the remaining eight positions.
The three reels will move to the right, and you’ll get 10 free spins of the two reels on the left. These reels can include a +2 Free Spins sign which will do what it says and award you extra free spins every time it lands on your reels.
Your reward in the game will depend on what you get on these two reels, and what you have in the three that are static.
After the free spins game has played out, the three reels will return to their normal position, and you’ll get another re-spin of the remaining two reels, this time with a chance to land an X-Scatter on one or both of them. The X-Scatter will multiply your win by 2x, or by 4x if you land both symbols.
CasinoWizard’s verdict: 3 out of 5 stars
The Lab is an experimental slot game that does things very differently, but you might just enjoy it. The free spins game is different, but it offers the potential of winning big if you enter the free spins game with useful symbols on your three static reels.
This game isn’t for everyone, but everyone should at least try it out.
