Hit it Big Slot Review

Released April 2019

The Hit it Big game can be found at casinos offering Elk Studios software. Elk Studios are a small but quickly growing casino software developer primarily focusing on the mobile market. At the present time they only offer slots games. Players should be aware that this software provider includes ‘betting strategies’ as an automated feature. These should be avoided. They offer no mathematical gain to the player and increase the risk of large losses in comparison to your bankroll. As a standard Elk Studios do publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within their game paytable. As such we can say that the House Edge of Hit it Big is 4%.

Hit it Big is made up of 5 reels, each one 3 symbols high. There are 5 paylines in total, playing from left to right.

Above and below the reels there is an additional set of symbols. If you can manage to match the symbols above and below then you will trigger the bonus it awards.

Special Symbols

Wild – Wild symbols will replace all other symbols except the Bonus symbol.

Bonus - 3 or more of the “Hit it Big” symbols are needed in order to trigger the game’s bonus feature. “Hit it Big” symbols can only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4.

Bonus Features

As already mentioned, matching symbols above and below the reels will trigger their particular bonus feature, each of which is described below:

Multipliers – There are various multiplier that will multiply a win if you can match them. There are x2, x5, x10 and x50 multipliers available. If you match more than one set of multipliers together then the value of the multipliers will be added together.

Respin – If you match the Respin symbols then you will receive 1 respin, during which will act as any other spin with all symbol options available.

Stacked Wilds – If you match the Stacked Wilds symbols then you will end up with a stack of Wilds, filling the reel between the top and bottom triggering symbols.

Locked Wilds – If you match the Locked Wilds symbols then you will receive 3 respins, during which reels 1 and 5 will become fully stacked with Wild symbols.

Hit it Big Bonus – You trigger the “Hit it Big” Bonus feature by landing 3 “Hit it Big” Bonus symbols across reels 2, 3 and 4. When this happens you will have a random chance to reveal one of the following: A Multiplier, an Arrow or a Bandit.

Arrow – The Arrow will move you up to the next level. Once you move up a level there are arrows pointing in the opposite direction that can move you back down a level.

Multiplier – This will be multiplied by the triggering bet and then the Bonus will end.

Bandit – The Bandit will end the Bonus.

If you can make it to the highest level of the bonus then you have a chance of trigger the “Hit it Big” payout which is between 100 and 1000 times the bet.


Hit is Big is a game with a simple theme, using some interesting features to make the gaming experience more exciting than your average slot game. The way the basic features are triggered is fun and engaging and the bonus, which can be over very quickly, does have a fairly big potential payout. The house edge is a little higher than we’d ideally like, but it does still offer some value for money. Unfortunately, despite all these positives, it’s always going to be hard to recommend a game with built in betting strategies. The “Advanced Betting Strategies” are sold as an advantageous game feature, when these strategies offer the player no improvement over flat betting. The reality is that if you increase your bet, you’re more likely to lose money than you are to make any. This is poor practice, and it drags everything positive about the game down. We would be highly critical of any website offering bogus betting strategies so a game developer doing this is even more problematic for us. If this was not a feature in the game I would be scoring this game much higher than I have done.
