WMS pays homage to The King in New Elvis Lives Online Slot.
It takes widespread popularity for any celebrity to earn a nickname, but it takes something monumental to be hailed The King. Such a moniker has only been dubbed on a few occasions, but none so memorably as the crowning of the The King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley. He is the legendary musician WMS has chosen to immortalize in its latest digital slots creation.
A legend like Elvis Presley deserves commemoration in a slot machine of equally epic proportions. The new WMS slots game aims to meet that goal by spinning one of the largest reel sets in the iGaming business. The new Elvis Lives Slot carries a massive grid of 5×12 reels, depicting the King in his most memorable performances.
New Elvis Lives Online Slot by WMS
WMS did a wonderful job capturing the essence of Elvis in the digital gaming firm’s latest brand-licensed slot machine. The musical score alone is fantastic, featuring many of the rock n roll icon’s greatest hits, like A Big Hunk O’Love, Blue Suede Shoes, Burning Love, Can’t Help Falling in Love, and more.
The King’s visage appears in three symbols that span his career. These are the highest paying symbols, and also have the unique ability to pay in both directions, so long as 3+ matching Elvis symbols appear adjacent starting from the left-most or right-most reels. The wild symbol, his band’s TCB logo, also counts towards both-ways Elvis wins if it starts the winning line-up on the left-most or right-most reel.
The game’s mid-range symbols revolve around Elvis memorabilia – his bling-happy sunglasses, Super 55 microphone, hibiscus flower, US Army medal. On the low-end of the pay table are playing card values of K, Q and J.
At any point in the base game, the middle three reels can merge to form a single column of massive 4×3 symbols. Only mid and high paying symbols, and a series of special bonus triggering symbols, can appear on this enlarged reel.
