32Red Casino has recently added the latest Microgaming slot Tiki Mania to their casino, this vibrantly colourful Hawaiin themed online slot was developed by Fortune Factory Studios and is being pitched as a highly volatile release.
Tiki Mania uses a regular 5×3 reel layout and comes with just 10 fixed paylines, the paytable does initially look quite disappointing with the highest paying symbol paying just 30x stake for a 5 of a kind win, thankfully there are a few nudging multiplier wilds that can come into play and boost wins by up to 3x, along with a free spins bonus round where extra free spins and re-spins can be earned.
Along with the Tiki Nudging Wilds feature, there is also a Jackpot on this machine which pays either 50x stake or 1000x stake if you manage to trigger it, the jackpots are based on purely on stake size so betting £1 makes the top jackpot £1000.
The main focus from regular play though will be triggering the free spins feature which is done by landing 3 scatters on the middle reels awarding 10 initial free spins, the same nudging Tiki wilds are in play during the bonus and should appear much more frequently too, granting re-spins of the reels as long as new wins are being created.
The Re-Spins feature can be quite nice with several winning spins in a row giving you extra wins and not using up a free spin, but given the 10 paylines, this is probably not as frequent as you might initially expect, certainly when the nudging wilds are towards the back reels of the slot.
Overall there is quite a lot packed into this machine, the base game features work nicely and it’s quite noticeable that the frequency of the nudging mechanics is higher during the bonus rounds.
You can check out all of this slots features in the gameplay video feature including the Jackpot feature!
