Bloopers is a 5 reel video slot produced by ELK Studios. It shows 3 rows of symbols and all of them are based on objects that might be seen during film shooting. There’s a button in the bottom left area that resembles to stacked coins. It takes players to the bet and strategy settings. The strategy options feature is one of the most distinctive elements of Bloopers allowing players to play the game according their style of play without putting much effort. The minimum bet is 0.25 and it can go as high as 100.
The symbols shown in Bloopers depict the atmosphere of the Movie Academy Wards. You can see the famous Movie Star and the blonde Starlet or the film record for instance. Other lower paying symbols follow the standard card like style showing A, K, Q, J and a 10. The Wild Symbol is represented with the logo of Bloopers, but covered in gold. It substitutes for any other symbols except the bonus symbol. You know what’s on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame? Stars! In Bloopers the bonus symbol is represented with stars that resemble to the stars we can see on the Walk of Fame. Hitting 3, 4 or 5 of these triggers the free spin bonus game granting the player Free Spins.
Bloopers features a special one of a kind “team” of characters called Bloopers. There are 5 of them and each of them rewards the player with a treat of its own. For instance, the Stunt Man triggers expanding wilds, the Cutter or the hair stylist triggers falling symbols, the make up artist gives the player extra free spins, the Jet Pack will shuffle the symbols to form a winning and line and lastly the Sound Tech guy puts random wilds on the reels.
During the Free Spin rounds the male and the female Movie Stars can turn into Sticky Wilds. The feature ends when all 3 symbols on reel 3, 4 or 5 are turned into Wild symbols. Besides Sticky Wilds during free spins one of our fellow Bloopers will land on reel 3, 4 or 5.
ELK Studios obviously tend to focus on quality instead on quantity. They’d rather release a new game with unique novelties once in a couple of months than to spam the market with games that do not bring anything new to the table. Maybe they’re a bit late with the release for the Movie Academy Awards since they already took place. Nevertheless, it’s a marvelous creation that’s eye-catching, rewarding, refreshing and we can already see Bloopers as one of the biggest hits coming from the house of ELK Studios.
