Coba Slot Overview

Coba is a new casino slot from ELK Studios where we head to this ancient Mayan place that has been guarded by the giant snake god Quetzalcoatl for many years. Coba, which means "water stirred by the wind", is certainly a place that is filled with riches and the game provider has been generous with the potential maximum winnings that players can scoop up. They usually stick to a maximum win of 10000X, but back at their Nitropolis 3, we saw a much more daring approach where you could win up to 50000X the bet. This time around, the lucky player can win up to 25000X, which could mean some serious cash flow for the lucky visitor. Let's visit this site and find out what one can expect to see during the spins.

Coba Slot Features

What is the max win in the slot Coba?

You can win up to 25000X the bet.

What features are available in the slot Coba?

The features are Wild Symbol, Avalanche, Snake Progress Meter and X-iter.

Snake symbols

Wild Symbol

The game's wild symbol helps to enable more winning combinations by substituting for other paying symbols.

Avalanche

When you create a winning combination, the Avalanche feature is activated. Then all symbols that were part of the winning combination will disappear from the reels and the remaining symbols will fall vertically with gravity. They will then slide down both sides to cover the positions, with new symbols falling down from the top to fill all the empty positions. Each winning cluster will generate points that are added to the Snake Progress Meter and the progress will remain as long as new Avalanches are created from wins.

Snake Progress Meter

By filling up the Snake Progress Meter with points, you will be able to take part in different levels with different amounts of snakes. Depending on whether you activate level 1, 2, 3 or 4, you will receive 1, 2, 3 or 6 snakes respectively. A snake is a linear cluster of symbols that will move along the reels, and it is at least 5 symbols long, where it is always guaranteed to create a winning cluster. It will receive a head and tail, which is indicated by the golden frame. It can also have a survival or non-survival state, which is indicated by a yellow or blue tail.

When this snake symbol lands, the symbol it landed on will become the selected snake symbol and when the snake moves to new positions, all of these positions will become the same symbol type. If this snake moves over this selected snake symbol, it will be eaten, and then activate the survival state and grow by one symbol. Once it enters the survival state, it will remain on the reels during the upcoming Avalanche.

If the snake fails to move over the snake symbol during the current drop, it will die and then disappear for the upcoming drop. A newly arrived snake symbol will always land with a yellow tail, which results in it surviving the first Avalanche, even if it has not managed to move over the specific snake symbol type. These snake symbols will then enter the non-survival state, meaning they must move over the specific snake symbol to qualify for the upcoming drop.

If two snake symbols cross each other's paths, the symbol position will receive a 2X multiplier wild which then will be doubled each time a new snake crosses that position. If you have several multiplier wilds, these will be multiplied by each other before being applied to any winnings. If a snake crosses its own body, it will be removed from the reels.

Snake symbols win with multiplier wilds

X-iter

If you want to take advantage of different features right away, you can use the X-iter feature. You can then choose from these that cost and do the following:

2X = This will release 3 snakes when you reach level 1 or 2.

10X = You will activate level 1 and receive 1 snake.

25X = You will activate level 1 and the snake will be longer than normal.

100X = You activate level 1, where level 1 and 2 will release 3 snakes.

500X = You activate level 4 and get 6 snakes released.

Coba Slot Conclusion

The fact that Quetzalcoatl has been protecting this place for all these years, is certainly understandable, when you see for yourself what is in this place. With the help of a phenomenal design and crisp, captivating sounds, players quickly manage to get into a good mood. The game has a first-class design, whereby its avalanche feature in combination with the gravity mechanic, helps to create a pleasant gaming experience. We have taken part of this gravity mechanic before in among other things Cluster Slide, whereby fans of this mechanic will find this site very pleasant as well. It's a slot that constantly offers thrilling spins, where the adventure many times kicks off as suddenly as a lightning from a clear blue sky.

The snake symbols are very powerful and when you manage to land several of them at the same time, you will many times see their explosive potential. When more of them land at the same time, the chances of being able to create more multiplier wilds increase considerably and thus the bigger wins become a fact. It feels refreshing that ELK Studios is trying out a higher max win size, which this time can be up to a gigantic 25000X the bet. The game's RTP is lower than average, but nowadays most game developers use several different RTPs, which still makes this a reassuring size, and we really appreciate that only one RTP is created for the game. Its medium volatility results in the balance not shifting as radically as they might in other more highly volatile games from this game provider. Its ingenious design and combination of lucrative snake symbols, make this gaming experience an incredibly entertaining one.

Coba is a slot where we head to this ancient Mayan temple, where the snake symbols can help us generate huge wins.
