|Symbols||Tiki marks, high playing cards|
Playtech’s Tiki Paradise slot machine is, of course, based on a tropical Hawaiian island. The slot machine game contains a host of clever tiki-style imagery and features their Connect in-shop play mode, which allows players to purchase extra features for use during the game.
Tiki Paradise is quite set apart from other Playtech developed slots in that regard.
Look and feel
Plenty of the imagery which appears on the reels of this game is colourful. There are your various tiki masks and statues, as well as a host of high playing card symbols, all designed in a painted wood fashion, lending to the theme and style of the slot.
Tiki Paradise’s reels are designed to resemble wooden poles, lashed together with rope. The wagering menu is also wooden in appearance, with the tropical island backdrop very fitting. The most obvious thing of note in this game is the Connect feature, though, which we’ll come to.
With only 10 paylines present on the reels of this slot, you naturally aren’t going to be able to alter them. Players can, however, alter the value of their total bet.
By using the +/- buttons, they can select total bets which range from 20p up to £100 per spin. As you may have guessed, you are already wagering double the bet (given that there are only 10 paylines) for the basic features in this slot.
Wild symbols appear as flames, and they can substitute for all other symbols in the slot game, whilst sweeping across the reels. These symbols also dish out the top prize of 250x your total bet if 5 are located on any payline in the game. Keep an eye out for the Wild Night feature. It can be triggered at random on any base game spin. Players can choose a reel to appear as a trigger window, and if a stacked wild appears in that window, a symbol shuffle will guarantee the best win possible.
A free spins bonus round can also be played in this slot, by landing free games symbols on the first, third and fifth reels at once. Players are rewarded with 10 spins, and they can use two modifiers to boost their bonus. These include a multiplier, a stacked wild guaranteed per spin, or the guarantee of consecutive symbol wins.
The Connect in-ship feature allows high rollers to play 5 spins with guaranteed stacked wilds present during each spin, as well as enhanced unlockables during the bonus round. However, wagers cost 10x the normal rate of pay when this feature is triggered.
