Bloopers may very well have the weirdest bonus round I've ever seen. I didn't read the rules but all sorts of mayhem take place with the characters. You have to get the bonus symbols consecutively and then hope you get 4 or 5 of them to get all the characters available to you. I played the free version at VSO. I do have funds in my account but I'm holding them until I get all my cashback.

Be forewarned, if you play for duration Elk is ok, but if you want to win anything run, Elk like a lot of other newer providers, games pay jack shit.

Of course they launch just when i am out of funds:rolleyes::D

Saw Seasons live in Unibet, Maria and Mr Green, and the other two slots only in Mr Green so far..
Has anyone played them yet - thoughts/impressions?

Yes, they were the slots along with (Sh)itanic I most recently added to slotscomparer. Out of them all, the appalling (Sh)itanic is forgettable, Seasons is quite odd but fun, and the Nextgen one is simplest and best IMO.

Never really use slotscomparer :)

I did try them in the meantime, except for the NextGen one..The superbet option turned me off for now, but i will try it later.
However, i did try the other two with some dedication, and after a few hours of spinning, i have to say i like Bloopers the most.

It's like most Elk games, graphically stunning, at least in my opinion, and the sounds are pretty cool too. The Bonus is fun, but i am not quite sure i had all the options yet: there's the little guy on the first position, that every now and then comes out during normal play, to produce a few wilds on the screen, and what i saw from the pay-table, there's 4 other guys (or to be precise 3 guys and one girl) which i all had active, save for the Stuntman..which is the one that produces random wild reels.

The other options are all quite funny and, at the very least entertaining:) Surely there's also some win-potential for decent hits, but from what i have experienced in the past, most of the times it comes down to low variance fun, which every now and then streaks in a succession of wins and features. Could be pretty good for wagering purposes, and unlike many other alternatives, this slot will most likely entertain you while playing.

Gonna have to play it some more, until i get the wild guy, as i suspect that may produce my biggest win yet.
So far i did have one 5 scatter trigger, which gave me all other three Bloopers active, but that turned out to be one of my worst paying features so far:p

I like it a lot!

Seasons gave me mixed feelings, i do like most of the titles Yggdrasil launched in the past year or two, but also know that some of them are well disguised high variance basterds, as the cheery graphics indicate fun and the paytable shows loads of possibilities to win...

In actual game-play that doesn't often show. At least not in Golden Fish Tank, Holmes and Seasons: i found it producing many dead spins, and loads of microscopic wins (less then 1x bet, which basically isn't even a win) with a feature that appears surprisingly difficult to trigger, and also does not produce big wins easily.

However, from what iv'e seen so far, there's is the huge win possibility, i think in this slot the biggest potential is in the winter season, with the Bunny-wild, which basically is like Wonky Wabbits. Had some decent ones on that, and also a 100x bet with the Elk wild..The Fox wild seems to come in batches, and the Owl wild..well, that's the least interesting, and will mostly flutter about uselessly, before disappearing:)

All the seasons do have some potential though, but, it's definitely high variance.

I got quite amazing hit on this slot bloopers. No rhyme or reason and You're right not very clear but I've had some good rounds all week at videoslots.

I really could use several nice bonus rounds at VSO starting tomorrow. Other than one 590X hit in Jack & The Beanstalk, my last session was pretty disappointing.

How come Yggdrasil slots are still not available for UK? Not even at Videoslots where i again have checked.

Yggdrasil got the license back in december 2015 but nothing seems to be happening? Does it mean the casino then has to apply to be allowed for using the slots for uk players?

It was so much better before until we got that crappy gambling commission grrrr

I have played Bloopers for a while and graphicly a stunning slot.
Had loads of bonus triggers and recorded 2 but no big wins.
However it is a fun slot.

It has defo big hit potential but never seen that random wild guy or the expanding wild guy either. (blue or yellow char).

Fun slot tho!

And the second one with 3 characters.
I assume when you have the wild guy unlocked (expanding or random wilds) too,wins can get very sexy. :)

Have had the yellow guy a good few times in a normal spin..
Looks like this:


The blue guy I haven't seen since I started to play this game this evening.
Did a couple of 100 of spins already.

Ah well,seems I will close for this evening with a nice 150 Euro profit on this slot. :)

i've had the blue guy , the one im missing in yellow sound guy ( random wilds ) , the blue guy i would of thought is where the money is , but i got bummed out really quickly ,although you do get stacked wilds , she showed up with super speed & didn't have the ks to wipe her away for a couple of spins , i think the slot is great , the best they've produced so far )

Played Bloopers again last night on 2.50 spins at a different casino.
It did eat 200.00 on 2.50 bets like crazy,far fewer bonus triggers than I had on 1.00 spins.
Also it never triggered once with more than 1 character.
Base game hits fewer and further in between.

The ol' tinfoil thought come into mind.
Increase your betsize,the slots decreases the amount of triggered bonus rounds and pays fewer wins? :cool:

Had a great session on the casino so the 200.00 loss on this slot was not a disaster.
Was just very surprised it behaved completely different on 2.50 spins.

I know there is potential in this slot but I am affraid the monster hits will be very rare on this slot.


I really do like it though.



Seasons I gave up upon,roughly 1000 spins divided between 2 sessions and 1x free spins,even with the worst season(the owl) LOL...Had one decent 200x bet hit but for the rest this slot is a bankroll buster.

Have played them all a plenty by now, but wasn't too impressed by either Seasons or A Dragon's Story..
But i was still looking for the Blue Guy in Bloopers..preferably in a combo with others:)
Had some crazy winning streaks on it too, and like lotusch, two or three really fast sessions, but these were rare in comparison.

So overall good playtime, decent hitpotential and streaky behavior put Bloopers on my candidates for best Games 2016 so far, and i also found out something i didn't know about the slot, which was pretty cool: the one Blooper guy that comes out and puts a few wilds on the screen, apparently can also be in a good mood, and where he normally puts 3, 4 or 5 wilds on screen, this time i think i got 4, and when the spin was paid, it said "again!", after which the guy came out a gain and duplicated each wild on screen! :) Another wild dropped in and it ended with this result:

Yep your bang on there i forgot to add that , i've had it once where it doubled again , my problem is i don't think the yellow guy has shown in all my play , there's a fair amount of spins played so far. still i like the game ,hate it when it kicks you out quickly with a poor feature , im still awaiting for a screeny like yours :thumbsup:

After my last session in Bloopers, think I'll avoid Elk Studios from now on. They make great looking slots but have terrible play mechanics.

seasons can kiss my ass!

The last 4 deer features have paid me ZERO three times and 15 cents once.

pretty disgusting since its very normal to go 500 spins with no feature

You should know by now - with your recent experiences on Vikings Go Berserk - that most Yggdrasil slots are playing 'hard to get' :)
There' s is some potential in the Seasons slot, but tbh, i left it alone shortly after i made this thread, since i luckily got one juicy sticky rabbit bonus (it's not sticky, but much like Wonky Wabbits) after a few tries, further only dead spinache (pun intended:p) and a few crap features for me..

Though i did like the innovativity of it when it was released, i don't think it has enough to get me hooked, such as with the likes of Cazino Zeppelin, Vikings 1 and 2, and Golden Fish Tank, to name a few..

If i were you i'd focus on others, and with all Yggdrasil, either go for it completely or do a quick dabble and if you hit 100x plus, run for the hills!
Surely, there is a lot of streakiness in some of there slots too, but, given their mega high variance nature, i'd say that is the best way to go in general.

Stop playing Riggedrassil...That is my advice...
I have banned them from my list...
As they do not pay unless you are willing to pump a few hundred or more into them...
