Route 777 is a very cool online Elk Studios slot, where you are looking for adventure in the searing desert heat
There are two extremely lucrative bonuses that you can win, and the graphics in Route 777 are a real delight, with a LED display and sceneries reminiscent of Route 66. And all of that is set to a fab, throbbing heavy rocking soundtrack by ZZ Top as the background.
Does this sound like a killer slot?
Well, it is! Elk Studios once again comes up with a little masterpiece with Route 777.
How does Route 777 work?
This hybrid slot is best described as a cross between a fruit machine, a video slot and an old fashioned pinball machine. Elk Studios had used this format once before, with the Ivanhoe slot, which we rated very highly. Apparently, they liked the format so much that they have now released a new variant.
Route 777 has 17 fixed paylines and three reels with three rows of symbols per reel. The betting range is between $€ 0.20 and $€ 100 per spin.
The payout rate is a solid 96.3%, and we estimate the variance to be medium.
Symbols and payouts
The symbols consist of fruits, BAR, cool skulls and 7’s in various colours.
The 7’s have the highest value.
Three blue 7’s on an active payline pay out 3.5 x your total bet. Three red 7’s is good for 7.5 your bet, and three white 7’s will net you 10 x your stake. If you spin a mix of three sevens, then you win a tidy 70 x your bet.
The fruit and BAR symbols have a value between 0.5 x and 2.5 x your total bet.
Bonus features of Route 777
This video slot has fun bonus features, both of which can pay out very handsomely.
You win the Overtake Respins when there are identical symbols on the first two reels. This will get you 5 free respins wherein the first two reels move down one position with every turn. Everything you win along the way is added to your total gain.
The Bonus game is the main bonus and is activated when you spin three scattered skulls.
You now win 5 free spins, but you can also earn extra prizes:
- Two scattered skulls award 5 – 15 additional free spins.
- Three scattered skulls activate the Fortune Wheel.
You spin the Fortune Wheel to collect 7’s. The more 7’s you can collect of the same colour, the bigger your take. And it can really add up! If you succeed in collecting three white 7’s, you end up with a payout of 500 x the bet. Not bad. But should you manage to spin three mixed 7’s, your payout will be an astounding 1,000 x your bet!
This Fortune Wheel Bonus can, therefore, be very lucrative indeed. When the wheel ends on the stop sign, the bonus will end, and your final tally will be calculated.
Our verdict on the Route 777 video slot?
Elk Studios has done it again: a top-notch slot release that not only looks cool and sounds insane, but that is also original and exciting. And all that combines into a hit as far as we are concerned.
It does not often happen anymore that we fall in love with an online slot at the first encounter, but Route 777 managed to do just that in a few minutes.
A must play!!
4.5 out of 5 stars.
