The Lab Slot Review

The Lab 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 The Lab is 3.7%.

The Lab is made up of 5 reels, each one 3 symbols high. There are no paylines, instead the game works using way lines, of which there are 15 in total.

Special Symbols

Wild – The “Lab” symbol becomes Wild during the free spins feature.

Scatter– The “X” symbol is the game’s Scatter and acts as a x2 multiplier.

The Green Crystal – The most valuable symbol in the game is the “Green Crystal” symbol. 3 “Green Crystal” symbols in a winning combination will award you with 100 coins. 4 “Green Crystal” symbols in a winning combination will award you with 200 coins and 5 “Green Crystal” symbols in a winning combination will award you with 1000 coins.

Bonus Features

Free Spins – To trigger the game’s free spins you need to hit the “Lab” symbol over the Vortex on reel 2 and you will be awarded 10 free spins. The “Lab” symbol becomes Wild and will substitute for all symbols other than the “X” symbol. The bet will remain the same as it was for the trigger bet. All wins are doubled during the Free Spin feature and 1 or 2 additional spins can also be awarded.


As a first offering from Elk Studios, “The Lab” shows some promise. The symbols are better than your average crystals slot but the bonus features are somewhat lacking. I think they’ve done as good a job as they can with this particular theme in term of the game’s aesthetics but more could be done to increase the game’s playability. However, the game’s biggest failing is the same as every other game that Elk Studios have made. 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.
