A robbery themed game with unique features and high-end graphics, Lake’s Five is coming from ELK Studios, a small developer but a good one. The slot machine that they came up with has 178 pay lines, not quite regular lines and not quite ways to win either. It has a good RTP, of 96.30%, it includes wild symbols, scatters, respins and free spins with a collection feature. Payout wise, there are wins of up to $216,000 possible, though the likely ones will be much smaller.

Betting Requirements

It doesn’t matter what kind of lines are used in this game, ELK will still rely on their standard betting system which has fixed values in every title of theirs. It starts from $0.20 and it goes up to $100, always having 100 coins in it. Only their total value changes.

Another area where ELK stands out is in the Betting Strategies that it gives you a chance to use. You pick the one you prefer, and based on how well you do, the wager can be increased or decreased automatically.


The game will pay up to 1,000 coins in its best combinations, and that doesn’t bring you payouts higher than $1,000. With so many lines and with its various features, it could end up paying up to $216,000 as a result of a single round.

The RTP looks pretty good, at 96.30%, a figure that is in line with the offer of other developers.

Special Features

Feature wise, there is plenty there, but mostly it’s all included in a single option.

Wild Respins

The scatter symbol has a Lake’s Five logo but turns into a wild and triggers respins when it is present only twice on the reels. The wild reels move one position downwards during each respin.

The Heist Bonus Feature

Should you get at least three scatters, then you will trigger The Heist feature instead, with its 10 free spins. Collect keys during the free spins, when they appear on the first, middle and last reels, to trigger additional features. These can bring you Walking Wilds, Sticky Wilds or Climbing Wilds. Multipliers of up to 3x are employed when these wilds meet up in a single position.

Theme & Graphics

I’m not quite sure what the story is with Lake’s Five, though the suggestion from the developer is that it’s revolving around a heist that a team of wild animals are planning, the target being a mobster’s huge building. You see the building overshadowing the entire city, in the background, while Mr Lake and his five companions are the symbols that will be used. You get elks, monkeys, fish, parrots, crocodiles and elephants, along with aquariums and a medic’s bag. The graphics are as good as they get, something that you can always count on ELK delivering.


It’s got exciting features, a good upper limit on the jackpot, great graphics, so overall, it’s a game that you’d enjoy playing.
