Voodoo Gold

Voodoo Gold is the newest addition to the gold family of slots by ELK, following their Ecuador Gold and Tahiti Gold video slots. It is set deep in the lush swamps of Louisiana and follows Kane, the main protagonist in all three slots, in his pursuit of immense riches.

Apart from fantastic visuals, the game features a blues soundtrack you will never get enough of. The game is played on a playing grid comprised of six reels and four rows of symbols and is packed with bonus features.

Wild Toro ELK Studios

Wild Toro

Wild Toro is themed after Spanish corrida and it follows a cowardly matador Diaz JR and a dashing bull called El Torro. While the slot comes with high-quality graphics, it is the animations that stand out the most and are guaranteed to keep your eyes glued to the screen each time you land a bonus feature.

The game is played on a playing grid comprised of five reels and four rows of symbols, and it comes with 178 paylines, Wild and Walking Wild symbols, a Respin feature, and the Toro Goes Wild bonus game.

Vegas Diamonds

Viva Las Vegas Diamonds! This exciting slot takes you on an unforgettable adventure in Sin City. The background features vibrant colours, neon lights, and luxurious buildings, all of which invite you for a spin or two.

While Vegas Diamonds resembles vintage fruity slots and comes with a 3×3 playing grid, the slot also features multipliers wilds, bonus symbols, and many other bonus features you will never have enough of.

Ivanhoe ELK Studios


ELK’s Ivanhoe is a blast from the past. The game is an extraordinary combination of vintage video slots, pinball machines from the 90s, and retro arcade rooms. Ivanhoe comes with a mobile-first approach and is an ideal game for history buffs who wish to travel back in time, fight alongside Richard the Lionheart and help him claim back his throne.

The game features three reels and three rows of symbols and comes with the Ivanhoe Free Spin Bonus Game you can advance through with a bit of luck and swift movements of your sword.

Lake’s Five

Meet Mr. Lake, a better-looking version of Danny Ocean, and more skillful, considering he needs only five crew members to pull off the biggest heist the world has ever seen. Their goal is to save their little monkey friend who has been captured by the evil Mr. Romano and get their hands on some of his immense treasure while they’re there.

Lake’s Five comes with 178 paylines, a playing grid comprised of five reels and four rows of symbols, as well as Wild Respins and Heist Free Spins bonus features.

Tahiti Gold ELK Studios

Tahiti Gold

Awaken your inner Indiana Jones and travel to Tahiti to reunite with Kane, an adrenaline junkie who loves adventures just as much as he loves gold. After hearing a rumor from the natives that the centre of the volcano on the island is made of pure gold, there was only one thing to do for Kane.

Characterised by tiki mask totems, lush forests, and crystal-clear beaches, Tahiti Gold comes with a 5×4 playing grid. It is packed with features such as Wild Forge, Avalanche, and Eye of Tiki bonus features, as well as big and bonus symbols, a wild symbol, and sticky wilds.


As is the case with every studio out there, ELK uses various technologies to ensure the best quality of their products. One of the most notable technologies they use helps them detect the specifications of your mobile device, such as speed and connection, for example, which then allows the game to adjust the settings accordingly to your device’s specs. As a result, players are guaranteed to have a seamless gaming experience, regardless of the device they’re using.

Furthermore, ELK uses machine-learning technology that enables players to adjust the game they are playing so that it can fit their playstyle. The Betting Strategy feature comes with four different settings, and players can take full advantage of it to form their gambling strategy.

Mobile Gaming

Even though their games are designed primarily for smartphones, each title is optimised to run flawlessly on any device. Thanks to HTML5 technology, ELK’s games can scale and adapt to screens of all sizes. In other words, players can enjoy the games regardless of the device they are playing on, be it a mobile phone or desktop computer.

Promotions & Bonuses

Another fantastic thing regarding ELK Studios is their ELK Compete add-on, an optional feature that allows operators to create and run slot tournaments through ELK’s games. These tournaments come in different forms, such as individual challenges or big multiplayer challenges where the players gain access to the leaderboard and compete for various prizes.


ELK Studios is licensed by multiple gaming authorities, which is a testament to how secure the software developed by ELK Studios is. In other words, all of their titles have met the highest security requirements.

Credibility & Fairness

When it comes to credibility and fairness, we can also use developers’ licenses to confirm the quality of their software. In order for a software provider to obtain a license, they must ensure that their games are fair and the outcome of every spin truly random. ELK Studios has licenses from the MGA, UKGC, and Gibraltar Gambling Commission, all of which testify to the fairness of their games.
