Poltava Flames of War Slot Review (Elk Studios)

You know one thing we never thought? There are not enough slot machines which focus on Swedish history. However, when Poltava cropped up, we realised, it sucked that there were not enough slot machines out there to choose from related to Swedish history. This game is great. Seriously!

How to Play the Poltava Flames of War Slot

Elk Studios have designed the Poltava Flames of War slot. It has 5 reels and 40 paylines. This is a medium to high volatility slot machine. The house edge is 3.6%. The minimum bet is 20p and the maximum bet is £100.

This game is based around a conflict between Sweden and Russia around the Napoleonic era. We must say, this game is beautifully detailed. Elk Studios constantly produce slot machines which blow us away in terms of design, but Poltava Flames of War is a whole new thing.

The images are intricate. You can tell that the Swedish lads and lasses at the studio spent a lot of time in making sure that this game looks as great as possible. This is just what you want. It is fair to say that Elk Studios do not have quite the budget that many of the other slot machine designers out there have, but they have managed to do well with it. The soundtrack is decent too. All in all, this is a decent slot machine.

As with many of the more ‘popular’ slot machines nowadays, this game is kept as simple as possible. It ensures that as many people are able to play it. For this reason, the game is going to be great for those who want to play slot machines for the first time, but more experienced players will be able to play it too!

Bonus Rounds & In Game Features

Poltava Wilds: In this game, the wild symbol will be the Poltava slot machine logo. As with other slot machines, it can act as a replacement for any other symbol on the reels. The only one that it can’t replace is the scatter, which is the wild. Basically, if you get one of these logos on the reels, then your chances of winning on the game are going to shoot up drastically.

Poltava Free Spin Feature: If you get three of the lions on the reels, then you are going to get 3 free spins. The lions are going to remain sticky on the reels. They are now wilds. In addition to this, if you get another lion during your free spins, not only is that one going to end up being stuck in place, but you are going to get another free spin. It is common to have three to four of these wilds on the reels at once. They tend to be grouped together too, which greatly increases your chances of winning.

Marching Reels Feature: The final feature is Marching Reels. This is quite a complicated feature, although once you play through it a few times, you should know what is going on. Basically, stacked symbols will appear and they will ‘march’ around the screen, while throwing free spins at you.

Poltava Mobile Slot Machine

When we first saw the Poltava Flames of War slot machine on a big screen, we figured that there would be no way in which the company would be able to shrink it down and make it look good. The images are just far too detailed. We are never going to doubt them again.

The Poltava mobile slot machine is absolutely fantastic. It looks great, even on the smallest of screens. Sure, some of the images do lose a bit of their detail, but to us they are still going to be breath taking. Honestly, this is one of the more enjoyable mobile slots that we have played here in recent years.

Summary – What Do We Think?

This game is simple to play. Honestly, it is. It may seem complicated at first glance, but it is still amazingly fun to play. Both new players and more experienced slot machine players are going to end up having a whole lot of fun here.
