The Superior Gravity of Jupiter Sets the Course to IO Slot
ELK Studios has just released a brand new slot that features the Gravity mechanics premiered with the slot Cygnus. The new slot is called IO Slot, inspired by the fourth-largest planet. Located amongst the celestial bodies, with the Gravity mechanics that causes symbols to tumble right and left, you will get a host of features to accompany you on the voyage to Jupiter.
The casino space station is set to conquer the solar system, where valuable minerals need to be collected from the moon. On each spin, the grid has 24 symbols, 4 rows and 6 columns, which allows for up to 4,096 ways to win. Symbols that landed on any of the rows, and formed a win, disappear thanks to the Avalanche mechanics, and brand new symbols gravitate left or right. An extra row is added with each Avalanche, contributing to the maximum of 262,144 ways to win and the up to 8 rows in height. Should you continue causing Avalanches you’ll have long chains of wins.
In terms of symbols, you’ll see around space disks, displaying icons from classic slots. The playing card Royals from J through A are the lowest-paying ones, followed by the Stars, Clovers and Diamonds. The Lucky 7s, though, are the highest-paying symbols, giving you 5x the stake for a 6-of-a-kind.
IO Slot offers three types of Wilds. The first one is, naturally, the regular Wild. The second one is the Forge Wild, and the third one the Charged Wild. They all act as substitutes when you need them, helping you form winning combos.

The Charged Wild comes with 4 lives, so whenever used as a substitute, it loses a life. When all of its 4 lives are gone, the symbol itself is gone from the grid, as well. The Wild Forge, on the other hand, adds a Wild Multiplier in empty space below it. Each time you use the Wild Forge in a winning combo, the Multiplier will increase. If the Wild Forge, though, falls to the bottom of the grid, any wins you make are multiplied by the value of the Wild Multiplier.
In terms of other special features, you have the Laser feature and the Free Drops bonus. When Laser symbols land and shoots a beam of light, they destroy themselves and all regular symbols in their way, letting new ones to fill the empty spots. If their beams intersect, all symbols hit with the beam become Wilds. Land 3 or more Bonus symbols, and you’ll trigger 7 to 15 Free Drops, which can be retriggered. During the Free Drops, the grid expands to its full size, meaning 8×8 size, with 262,144 ways to win, and with Forge and Charged Wilds remaining as Sticky Wilds throughout the entire bonus round.
