SlotBeats hits the beach as ELK Studios claims SOTW triumph

SlotBeats has been dreaming of a beach getaway after playing ELK Studios’ latest cocktail-sipping slot release, Tropicool 2, which has combined hot beaches with cool features to claim our Slot of the Week award.

As a 6×6 reel slot with 46,656 ways to win, Tropicool 2 offers a number of bonus features, including mystery symbols, locked wilds and sloth respins, to offer a maximum win of up to x25,000 the player’s stake. The game has medium-high volatility with an RTP of 94 per cent. 

This game uses cascading wins, meaning that symbols in a winning combination will disappear after providing their payout to make way for new symbols and increase the win potential of an already successful spin. 

Above the reels, there are three additional horizontal reels. These reels will depict enhancement symbols, such as mystery symbols, locked wilds, sloths and row swap features, that can drop into play if a cascading win occurs in their respective reels.

Flamingo and toucan bird symbols can appear on the reels with sizes of 1×1, 1×2, 1×3, 1×4, 1×5 or 1×6. Flamingos and toucans can provide payouts of x0.2 and x0.3 respectively, with the size of each bird symbol that lands on the reels representing a multiplier to be applied to that payout. 

Sloth symbols can also land on the reels, triggering respins as they nudge one reel to the right with each spin. Once the sloth reaches the edge of the reels, the respins will stop. If a bird symbol lands on the same spin as a sloth symbol, the sloth scares the bird, turning it into wild symbols. 

Bonus B symbols are included, triggering six, nine, 12 or 15 free spins if three, four, five or six appear on the same spin. 

Row swap symbols can also drop into play in the base game, depicted as two arrows. These symbols cause one symbol to replace others on the same row to increase the spin’s win potential. 

Furthermore, mystery symbols are available, showcasing a question mark. At the end of each spin, these mystery symbols will reveal a number of identical random symbols from the paytable.
