Elvis: The King Lives Slot
No other performer is associated with Las Vegas quite as much as Elvis. The King has already been the subject of several slots from IGT. This game from WMS has some great reasons to play, with the enhanced sound being one of the main ones. You can enjoy a rock n roll track during normal spins and things really get going during the bonus feature!
Elvis: the King Lives uses the ‘Money Burst’ system that is unique to WMS. This is doubled up, with 2 separate reels with 2 symbols each at the top and bottom left and then 3 reels of 6 symbols bursting out from them. This does look odd when you first see it, though it only takes a few spins before you tune into the system – after that the new way of working adds to the game play. This slot machine is available both at live casinos and can be enjoyed online.

Playing Elvis: the King Lives
There are 80 win lines in total, these cover a lot of different combinations starting with the 2 blocks of 4 symbols on the left and ‘bursting’ out to the right. You can lower the total number of lines, though this reduces the effectiveness of the wild (Elvis) symbols in completing multiple wins – so I advise sticking with the full amount. The bet is for every 2 lines, so you can play all 80 for just 40c. A nice touch is that the console where you choose lines and spins is made to look like a 1950’s jukebox.
Symbols on the reels are all the classic items you would associate with Elvis. You’ll find blue suede shoes, a hound-dog, guitar, pink teddy bear and Elvis himself shown in different poses representing the different periods of his career. One symbol has a smouldering portrait view and the word ‘Elvis’ in big letters behind. This is the wild symbol, which substitutes for all others except for the ‘record’ feature symbol.
Elvis Classics Incorporated into the Game
I found the track in the background entertaining, this does change tempo now and again and has different instruments fading in and out – keeping it from getting repetitive. There are a lot of small wins that come from this game, which means that the prizes are smaller compared to some other slot. 250 coins for 5 of the wild Elvis symbols might not seem like much, however when you win this over 20 lines at the same time, the total can be very big! The 4 different Elvis symbols have the biggest prizes, with the shoes, dog and so on next in the prize list followed by the playing card symbols (which are given a retro looking makeover).
There are several different ways you can trigger the feature round, which is a pick-em game followed by free spins. First you can line up 3 of the record symbols with ‘Elvis’ written on them. The other main way is to get 4 identical symbols in either of the left hand sets of 2 reels. Wild symbols do substitute in that case. You’ll get extra spins for getting both of those things at the same time.
You’ll go to a break out screen where a light will stop on a bonus amount which starts off your wins for the free spins – this can make a big difference since all free spin prizes are in addition to this amount. Next you go to the reels, and ‘Nothin but a Hound Dog’ will play while your 5 or more spins run through. Afterwards your total win is displayed, the record rolls past and you’ll be told that ‘Elvis has left the bonus’.
This is an enjoyable slot, with the enhanced sounds one of several reasons it is worth taking for a spin. I like the double Money Burst setup, which can give you multiple wins when you least expect it. The bonus game and overall light humour of the game are also nicely produced – check out Elvis the King Lives for yourself soon.
