It is time to don those sunglasses and dream of lazy days on the beach, somewhere like Hawaii maybe? While you are there be sure to look up Inspired Gaming’s beach life slot game, and see what treasures are to be found in Tiki Tastic.
Tiki Tastic is a 5-reel, 20 fixed pay line slot offering an RTP of 95% for players to limbo towards. Set right on the beach looking out towards a calm blue sea, Tiki Tastic is the epitome of a dream holiday with palm trees, beach torches and more. These all add to the theme, as well as the great Hawaiian music track tinkling along too.
Symbols spin on transparent reels giving you more chances to see the awesome view behind. Higher paying symbols are the beach hut, Tiki Tastic logo, guitar, cocktails and a boat. Lower value symbols are the K, Q, J, and 10 icons normally found on playing cards.
Bet Amounts – Betting on Tiki Tastic begins at just 30p per spin and can be increased to a huge £150 per spin. The total bet can be found in the centre of the screen below the reels. There is a plus and minus sign on the bet screen allowing you to adjust the bet amount up or down as you need.
Wild Symbol – Your wild symbol in Tiki Tastic is the word ‘Wild’ being embraced by someone wearing a tiki mask. It will substitute for all other symbols in the game except the tiki girl bonus symbol.
Scatter Symbols – A Tiki Tastic girl surrounded by palm leaves is your scatter symbol. You will need to land 3 or more of these scatter symbols anywhere on the reels to trigger the bonus feature.
Power Modifier Feature – Every so often as the reels spin you will see a letter land on each of the reels. Reel 1 has the letter ‘P’, reel 2 is the letter ‘O’, reel 3 the letter ‘W’, reel 4 the letter ‘E’ and reel 5 has the letter ‘R’. Above each of the reels is the matching letter and when it lands on that respective reel, it will light up the letter above. Once the whole word is lit up above the reels, you will trigger the power modifier feature. Here you will be given the choice of three chests to pick from, choose one chest to reveal one of the three modifiers shown below:
- Wild Spinner Modifier – a random symbol will be chosen to have all instances of it on the reels turned wild to help form a win. A single respin is awarded with the new wilds added to the reels.
- Win Spins Modifier – awards a single respin and guarantees a win of at least x10 your bet amount.
- Super Bonus Reels Modifier – awards a single respin and adds more tiki girl scatter symbols to the reels to boost your chances of triggering the bonus feature.
Tiki Chest Bonus Feature – You can trigger the bonus feature in two ways, by landing three or more tiki girl scatter symbols anywhere on the reels in the main game. Or, by triggering it through the power modifier feature which also needs a minimum of three scatters. But as there are more scatter symbols added in the modifier, you have a better chance of triggering it there. Now, you will be taken to a new screen and offered 9 chests to choose from. You will get to pick just 5 of these chests and each one will award you one of the following:
- Win Multiplier – a random multiplier is awarded for the bonus spins round,
- Lose a symbol – all instances of the lowest paying symbol is removed from the reels for the bonus spins,
- Bonus spins – a random number of spins is awarded between 2 and 5.
Once you have chosen your 5 chests and revealed the symbols beneath they will be accumulated, and you will be taken into your bonus spins round. Because there are multiple options for all the symbols, you could end up choosing a few different spins symbols as well as the multiplier and/or the lose a symbol. Either way it will make for a very interesting round once you have chosen all 5 chests.
Bonus Modifier Feature – Only available within the bonus spins round, the bonus modifier replaces the power modifier. This means that every time a tiki girl scatter symbol lands, she will award you an extra feature for the spin which include the following:
- Growing Symbol – all symbols that appear on reels 1, 2 and 3 will transform into matching symbols to create a big money win.
- Contagious Wilds – wild symbols will be added at random to the reels and then they will spread over to adjacent positions creating potentially bigger wins.
- Win Multiplier – this will increase the multiplier you won in the first part of the game by x1 every time you trigger it.
- Lose a symbol – all instances of the lowest paying symbol are removed from the reels for the bonus spins. If you trigger this one again, the next lowest paying symbol will be removed and so on.
- Bonus spins – a random number of spins is awarded between 2 and 5, and added to your current spins total.
What an amazing game Tiki Tastic is, although it doesn’t have the highest RTP which may put a few players off. We found that we barely noticed, because the small wins came fast and often, and once you trigger those modifiers you are in the money anyway. Inspired Gaming have put more into the playability of the game as opposed to the overall look, but that doesn’t matter either. The jaunty track playing along boosts your moral as you play, and everything is so colourful you instantly feel brighter. We think many people will find enjoyment in Tiki Tastic in more ways than one and it’s easy to see why it is popular amongst online casino visitors.
