Electric Sam is an online video slot game produced by ELK Studios. The theme of this slot is a bit of a mishmash that includes trolls, enchanted forests, electrified casino signs and a standard fruit theme. The backdrop to the game is an enchanted forest where the reels are suspended between two trees with electric lights roped around reels themselves. The trio of trolls are the main characters in the game and subsequently play a major role in the bonus section. The graphics and animation are high quality with a gentle forest sounding background track that makes for an entertaining slot experience.
Electric Sam is based on the modern slot setup of 5 spinning reels with 243 ways to win. On the reels, players will find a mix of symbols relating the various themes in the game. The three troll symbols are the highest paying with Sam being the highest followed by Sandra and then Maggie. The free spin bell symbol is the next highest paying symbol. The lower paying symbols are variants of the classic fruit symbols like cherries, watermelon, grapes and lemons. The fruit symbols have all be styled to make them appear neon electric lights.
