Ten Elements Basic Information:
I never ended up understanding a lot about chemistry. Even I know, however, that there are considerably more than ten elements. Then again I'm speaking from a position of western science. Maybe this game is based off the world of Pokemon or, more likely, off traditional eastern culture. Is this is a case of scientific simplification for the sake of a pokie, or is Ten Elements yet another game which makes this reviewer look like a over-analysing dork? Keep reading our review to find out…

Ten Elements is typical of a Red Tiger game in that nearly everything within this game can be done from the main game screen. The different buttons and their purposes on this screen are as follows:
This is found up the top-right of the main game screen. When toggled this option simply turns on or mutes all game sound.
- Information, Help and Paylines
These are found when the player clicks the three horizontal bars to the top-right of the main game screen. This then opens a tab where the player can enter the pays or help screen. While the help screen will offer a simple list of game rules the pay section comes with a list of symbol worth and bonus structures. The pay section can also be accessed when clicking the small PAYS button to the bottom right of the main game screen.
Here the game comes with a simple + and – icons. Clicking on these will change the bet, from the minimum to the maximum.
This is accessed when clicking the small world icon at the top right of the main game screen. When this is opened the player is given access to recent and important news from Red Tiger.
This option is also located to the top right of the main game screen. When this is clicked the game will enter full-screen mode. Note that this mode can offer increased performance on certain devices.
The button used to spin.
Also on offer from The Epic Journey is the autoplay function. This is accessed by clicking on the auto button on the lower left of the main game screen. While in this section the player can select the total amount of spins to play out from a drop-down box. The player can also set a loss limit via another drop-down box.
Additionally, the player can click the more autoplay settings button to reveal a set of more advanced rules. This gives the player the ability to stop if a single win exceeds a selected amount, if a single jackpot is won, or when a bonus feature is won.
Ten elements is a bit of an oddity in that it seems to reference portions of actual Asian history, yet it doesn't seem to care much for accuracy, as least as far as we can tell.
The closest we have to this, at least as far as our research turned up, was the 5 elements of ancient China.
Other Features and Bonuses

The free spins bonus game in Ten Elements is accessed when the player gains 3 free spin symbols in a single spin. These do not need to appear on an active payline in order to generate a win. This comes with a total of ten free spins. Each of these spins comes with a different weapon acting as the wild. On the tenth spin of this game the player will have a 100% chance getting a 4×4 wild on the reels for an increased win.
How to Play:

When in this section the player can set an amount of spins to played out automatically. They can also set ending rules which can be used to stop these free spins.
Overall Design and Usability:
The design of Ten Elements is one of bright and light colours, mostly consisting of pinks, whites and purples. Combining this with an Asian inspired aesthetic creates one of the prettiest looking pokies which we here at CasinoPokies24 have yet reviewed. It's not just the colour here which sets this game apart, as the symbols, background and animations all work together to create an especially elegant look and feel.
When it comes to usability, Ten Elements performs just as most other creations from Red Tiger, for better or worse. Mostly this is the former, as the game runs and responds very well, with no problems with reliability arising during our entire testing process. The only issues here come from the lack of graphical options and the somewhat lacking help sections. The graphics options can be a problem because these allow players on older or less powerful devices to get in on the play, so here they might be left out in the cold. The help section suffers in that it does not actually detail all of the different bonus structures in the game. Luckily for you guys we do that for you!
Where to find it:
Red Tiger may not be as common as the big boys in the business, but they still do very well. Check out the following links for website reviews which offer games from the Red Tiger framework. From here you can decide which casino works for you, and you can jump right in!
One of the prettiest games which we have reviewed, yet one that is ultimately quite shallow. While we can still absolutely recommend this game for newer players or those who like the general theme, the game itself does not offer a bonus system robust enough to hold the attention of players for long. What is here is of high quality, of that there is no question, its just that there isn't quite enough of it to make this one of our highly recommended pokies.
