As the announcer makes their way onto the stage to introduce the next category for Game of the Year 2017, 13 software developers are wondering if their efforts will finally pay off. These are the best of the best, games chosen by the developer to represent their work for the entire year. The crowd hushes, and the announcer begins the speech.
“The nominees for this year’s EGR Game of the Year 2017 are…”
“And the Winner of EGR’s Game of the Year is…”“It shows that hard work, innovative and never compromising are things which are valued and appreciated.” Elk Studio
Well, the clue was in the title so, we killed the anticipation before we even started. “WILD TORO!!!” The Game of the Year goes to Elk Studio’s brilliant animated online slot. Elk have only been in the business for a hand full of years, 4 to be exact, and Wild Toro was only their eighth game, but just rewards and Elk Studios have continuously pushed the boundaries of entertainment and thrill, without having to rely on big licensed deals or the reliance on holding a big brand name *cough (NetEnt)*. Well done to Elk and the Wild Toro game.
Wild Toro is a 5 reel slot stacked in 4 rows and comes with a 178 pay line feature, included is a mix of wilds, Walking Wilds, re-spins and extra spins. The Matador is no winner here though, it’s all about you with the help of the Bull, Toro. The animation is spectacular, the game bursts when Toro arrives as a Wild and goes on a total rampage turning symbols left and right into wins that re-spin over and over and over again. Watch as he goes after the Matador in wonderful played out detail. Entertainment wise it is a clear 5-star game with 10/10 across all features from music to the games betting strategies. The Award winner also pack a Jackpot total of 100,000 should you land the Red Rose five times. Test the game here and realise what truly winning game offers.
