Microgaming and Fortune Factory Studios join forces to develop a stunning animated slot title in Tiki Mania. The partnership of these software providers has created a slot able to pay up to 1,000x your stake, offering you a vast amount of summer fun thanks to Wild Reel Nudges, Re-Spins, multipliers, and Free Spin bonuses.
Phelan Sykes, Head of Game Production at Fortune Factory Studios, eagerly anticipated the release of the game and had this to say:
“Creating the animated and tropical world of Tiki Mania has been an enjoyable experience for us at Fortune Factory Studios. We can’t wait for players to experience Tiki Mania, the Hawaiian party serving up exciting mechanics and colourful graphics and offering the potential for huge rewards. Collecting coins with each Red Tiki Wild builds excitement and anticipation as the chase for epic wins via the Jackpot feature gets tantalisingly close!”
Tiki Mania loads the reels with hot and exciting prospects, as you surrender to the sun, sand, and surf. The blue waters, white beaches and shady palms form a most welcoming backdrop to a reel set that is designed in the most creative way. Being a Hawaiian theme, the game makers cleverly designed the reel grid to look like it had been weaved of palm leaves. They are then framed in green bamboo and capped with thatching, to top off the tropical vibe of the game.
The soundtrack maintains the mood, providing an indigenous sound that will literally make you feel like you are being hosted on the islands.
The graphics are pristine and bright, with well-designed visuals with animated details. The use of colours bolsters the summer vacation feeling for one and all. Look to the reel symbols for excitement, as matching these icons will load up your bank balance.
The symbols include traditional island drums, a guitar, shakers, and coconut cocktails. The lower value items include card deck symbols (J – A).
There are some special symbols in the game. The free spin Scatter is a trigger for the main bonus round. There are also 4 different Tiki Mask symbols available. These are all Wilds, each one offering something a little different from the other. One thing all the Wilds have in common is the ability to substitute for all standard game symbols, except other Wilds and the free spin scatter.
Tiki Tech and Gameplay
Tiki Mania is played over 5 reels and 3 rows, delivering 10 fixed paylines to help you win rewards.
To be a winner you will need to land three or more matching symbols from the left to the right on consecutive rows. Rewards will be paid in accordance with the paytable and multiplied by your line wager. The total bet for each round can be adjusted from between €0.10 to a whopping €100 per spin.
For extended gameplay, you need not spin the reels each time, but rather make use of the Auto Play function on the user interface. Here, you can set the machine to spin the rollers for you, up to 100 consecutive times.
Base game spins are not the be-all and end-all of this game, instead the title offers several bonus features.
✓ Wild Nudge
The Red Tiki Wild has a big part to play in this game. Should one land on the periphery of the screen, partially showing, the reel will nudge the icon into view and it will expand to cover the entire reel. When this happens it will trigger a Re-Spin of the Reels.
When the reels re-spin, the Red Tiki will stay in place. You can land either a Blue, Green, or Yellow Tiki Wild during the re-spin as well, offering a 1x, 2x, or 3x win multiplier, respectively.
✓ Jackpot Feature
Each time the Red Tiki Wild lands, it will also accumulate coins. When enough coins are accumulated, you can trigger the Jackpot feature, where you stand the chance of winning one of two jackpot amounts, up to 1,000x your stake.
✓ Free Spins
The main feature in the game is the free spin bonus. This is triggered when you manage to land 3 free spin scatters on reels 2, 3, and 4, simultaneously. This outcome will award a win of 2x bet and deliver 10 Free Spins for you to rake in bonus wins with.
Additional free spins can be triggered, for when a scatter appears during the feature, you will receive an extra spin added to your current tally. Multiplier Wilds can also land in the free spin feature, for value-added rewards.
Escape on an island getaway, where the only thing you have to concentrate on is a chance to win money. The medium variance game offers a mixed bag of wins and is especially lucrative when triggering the free spin feature.
