Pink Elephants is a video slot from New Zealand Thunderkick that offers a whole range of surprises. The game is undeniably quirky, both in name, theme and features. In fact, it is difficult to categorize this title. Is the game an adventure, is it a slot about animals or is it perhaps a psychedelic trip? Pink Elephants is clearly unlike any other slots Thunderkick has ever created (and ever will create in the future).

As follows from the title, Pink Elephants are in the center. They have about the same role as the rhinos in WMS/SG's very popular video slot Raging Rhino, and we have to say that Thunderkick has also borrowed fresh from that slot. In Pink Elephants you get to play with 4096 fixed win ways in each spin and you have the chance to play a free spins round that gives you progressively extra high win symbols in each and every other spin.

About Pink Elephants slot

Pink elephant slot symbol To say that Pink Elephants is more than legitimately inspired by WMS alster Raging Rhino is no exaggeration. Had WMS not released its iconic slot a couple of years ago, Pink Elephants would not have seen the light of day. However, this thing of ”borrowing” functions and other grips is nothing directly rare. It remains only to look at the relationship between NetEnt and Betsoft . For example, the similarities between Gonzo's Quest and Rook's Revenge are very many.

The main roles are played by the pink elephants. They have a design that makes them feel a little magical, especially as their eyes shine. The elephants pay the absolute best, and in addition, you only need to get two consecutive ones over any of the 4096 paylines in order for you to win. There are also four fairly clear supporting roles in the game. These are played by four filures that appear to represent meerkats. The meerkats are of great importance for your chances of winning in the free spins round.

Graphically, Pink Elephants are an explosion of colors. The background depicts a sun-drenched Savannah where only a few bold trees and plants can survive. The elephants are bright pink, and the same goes for the wild symbols. The meerkats are in four different colors and the other symbols are also colorful. The sound is a strange story. With drums, flutes and what appear to be didgeridoo sounds, an almost hypnotic soundscape is created. In fact, we can recommend that you keep the game sessions quite short so that you don't get engrossed in the sound!

Stakes and winnings

In Pink Elephants, you have a whopping 4096 ways to win in each spin. The game is based on a all wins - function and because the wheel position is huge (6 reels and 4 rows), the winning paths are really many.

If you click on the ”chip button” you will see 14 available bet sizes. It's just that you choose the one that suits you best. Possible stakes in Pink Elephants are 1, 2, 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 50, 75, 100, 200, 500, 750 plus$1,000.

The pink elephant symbols clearly pay the best. Six elephants in a row gives 10 times the BET and two elephants are actually enough for you to get your money back. Full screen with elephants gives you 4096 times the bet. In the free spins round, this maximum win can be doubled!

The variance and volatility of the game is of the higher kind. You may have to go through lots of dead spins between wins, but the game can also slam shut at any time. The refund is 96.10%, which we think is stingy. Thunderkick have several slots with an RTP of over 97% and also a slot with an RTP of over 98% (Uncharted Seas), but in Pink Elephants you have skimped a lot.


We have already touched on the symbols in the game, but there is more to say. For example, it is good to know that the elephants can come stacked. Each stack offers many chances of winning on many paylines, so a pair of pink elephant stacks can bring massive wins.

The meerkats pay clearly worse than the elephant, but the dividends with them can still be reasonable. At the same time, these symbols cannot come stacked.

To complement the set of icons, Thunderkick has added bonus symbols (peanuts) and playing card symbols (a, K, Q, J, 10 and 9).

The jokers in Pink Elephants come scattered on the reels and pop up from time to time. They can be a good help in connecting the reels with each other so that you can get more hits on more lines. A single small wild on, for example, reel number two from the left can be the difference between a nit ticket and a massive win!

Collect peanuts - get free spins

Three or more peanuts will give you access to the free spins bonus in the game. You can also gradually accumulate more free spins with the help of the peanuts in the free spins round itself. In the bonus round, two extra scatters are enough for you to get three more free rounds. Otherwise, the scheme looks like this:

  • 3 scatters give 7 free spins / 5 extra free spins in the bonus round
  • 4 scatters give 11 spins /7 extra spins
  • 5 scatters give 15 spins / 9 extra spins
  • 6 scatters give 19 spins / 11 extra spins

The free spins round in Pink Elephants is a bonus that can bring amazing winnings. Namely, this is how you can gradually get more and more high-paying elephants on the screen.

When the bonus starts, you will see the four meerkats to the left of the screen. They are surrounded by circles and each time an elephant with a luminous trunk appears, one of the circles is marked. When you have collected ten elephants, the meerkat in question will turn into an extra elephant on the reels. So it can continue until all the MeerKAT symbols always appear as elephants.

Mystery symbols

Slots with mystery symbols go there almost thirteen on the dozen of nowadays. In Pink Elephants, however, they do not work as in other slots with the feature. Here, instead, the game can sometimes be "frozen" and that you then get some or a few extra peanuts on the screen. The minimum number of extra peanuts is one (1) while you can get five (5) at most. In short, you get more chances to activate the free spins bonus when the mystery symbol feature is activated.


It is inevitable to make comparisons between Pink Elephants and WMS slot Raging Rhino. We'll let you decide which slot is the best, but it might be good to know that Pink Elephants both pays a little more on average (96.10% compared to 95.91%) and has a little higher maximum winnings than Raging Rhino has.

When it comes to graphics, game mechanics and sound, we think Pink Elephants is a really lovely slot. The graphics are top-notch and the width of the soundscape is good. Note, however, that the music is a bit psychedelic and that it does best in small doses.
