Tiki Wonders Slot
Tiki Wonders is a 5-reel, max 30-pay line progressive jackpot online slot from NetEnt. When you dream of winning a substantial amount of cash, you may dream of indulging yourself with an exotic, all-inclusive holiday upon some mystical island. With 'Tiki Wonders' you might win enough cash to enable you to do just that! You'll certainly get in the mood for a little exoticness with this game as all the slotting action takes place against the background of sun-kissed shores. Despite the 'tiki' motif ('tiki' means 'first man' in Māori) this slot cannot seem to decide whether it's Polynesian or Hawaiian-influenced. Still, that's a nice identify crisis to have!
There are two progressive jackpots in this game: The 'Mega Wonder' jackpot, and the 'Wonder' Jackpot. These two jackpots are shared with another two slots: Icy Wonders and Geisha Wonders. The Mega Wonder jackpot seeds at €10,000 and the average win is around €100,000 although the record is over €750,000. The smaller Wonder jackpot seeds at €500 and despite this small start payouts in excess of €75,000 have been recorded.
All the symbols used in this game are all Polynesian (or Hawaiian) based – exotic cocktails, toucans, turtles, lizards and dolphins all put in an appearance. Your coin size options range from 0.01 to 0.50, and all thirty lines are selectable. There are four bet levels too – your final wager-per-spin is your coin size multiplied by your bet level multiplied by the number of lines you have in play. When you're ready to jet off to distant, sandy shores, hit that 'spin' button.
Payout & bonus rounds
Payouts start off at x2 your bet-per-line for two of the exotic cocktails on the menu, and the top, non-progressive jackpot is 1,000x for five dolphins.
A surfer dude wearing a tiki mask acts as the wild symbol in this game. You can land an amazing payout of 10,000x if you score five surfer symbols on an active pay line, and the symbol substitutes for all other symbols aside from the scatter.
A hula-skirted girl acts as the scatter symbol. You need to land at least two anywhere on the reels to score a payout. If you land three you also gain ten free spins, plus an extra ten free spins for each additional scatter you land up to a maximum of thirty freebies. All wins during free spins are tripled, and you can earn more freebies during your free spins.
Golden star symbols act as the progressive jackpot trigger. If you land four on an active pay line, you win the Wonder jackpot. If you land five, then the Mega Wonder jackpot is all yours!
Tiki Wonders was released before NetEnt began to concentrate on their amazing range of '3D' slots, so this is a game where you won't be expecting ground-breaking graphics. The game plays like a 'traditional' online slot without too many features that are likely to get you excited. Unfortunately, given the range of superb online slot games that are now available, there are not too many reasons other than those jackpots to play this game … although that may be reason enough!
