Tiki Rewards online slot by Microgaming and All41 Gaming is a brightly hued tropical adventure with a wild, fiery twist. The game’s theme places you in a sunny island paradise where magical Tikis can dish out some serious winnings. Nature-themed carvings appear as symbols on the reels and the bonus features include free spins and jackpots to help you discover island treasure.
There are four colours of Tiki; green, red, blue, and gold, and if three of the same type land within the border that frames reels 2, 3, and 4, you will receive a corresponding colour-coded jackpot prize. The values of the green, red, and blue jackpots change with each spin, but the combined value of these 3 will always equal 30x your stake and the golden Tiki jackpot is worth 1000x your stake. All Tikis, except for the gold one, can appear with a random multiplier attached to them. The combined multipliers are added up and applied to your payout. IF you land 3 golden Tikis, you will win the total value of all the jackpots which comes to 1030x your stake.
You will receive 7 free spins when you manage to land 3 scatters on the reels. The frame around the central bursts into flames and begins changing colour with each free spin. The colours cycle between red, green, and blue, causing only tikis of the same colour to land within the area. This means that you are more likely to collect on one of the jackpots while the feature is active and golden Tikis can appear irrespective of the colour of the frame. You can also extend your free spins experience if +1 symbols make an appearance, these grant you an extra free spin each.
Tiki Rewards slot is a fun experience with some enjoyable gameplay, but does the reward justify the risk? The slot’s island theme ticks all the boxes with a scenic beach background and accompanying drum-filled tribal soundtrack. Landing 3 Tiki symbols during the base and bonus games happens regularly and serves the double purpose of securing you a jackpot win and helping you make some lucrative winning combinations.
You don’t have to access free spins to get the slot’s top prize of around $103 000, but the golden Tikis appear far less frequently than their colourful counterparts, so attaining this relatively meagre prize is comparatively less rewarding than other slots, considering the high volatility.
This title does have some great elements, but whether you like it will probably come down to how much you enjoy the theme and gameplay as the slot’s potential doesn’t inspire much excitement.
