Tokidoki Lucky Town Slot
Tokidoki Lucky Town is a 5-reel, 40-pay line online slot from IGT. If there's one slot that warrants a lengthy explanation, it's this cartoon-flavoured game. Tokidoki (which in Japanese means 'sometimes') is a 'lifestyle brand' that was created by an Italian artist named Simone Legno. Tokidoki has become a major brand in Japan, especially with the young and preteen to teen girls especially. The brand has a plethora of cute characters, including 'The Moofia' (cows), 'The Cactus Friends' (one of whom goes by the unfortunate name of 'Bastardino') and the 'Wild Boys' (four coloured tigers each with different personalities).
There are seven characters used in this game:
- SANDy (a cactus friend)
- Donutella (a doughnut)
- Stellina (a unicorno)
- Mozzarella (a cow)
- Latte (a milk carton)
- Pogo (another unicorno)
- Truffle (a rabbit unicorno)
- Caramella (a sweet that rides upon a candy stick)
The tokidoki characters are joined on the reels by playing card symbols from ten to ace, all presented in a tokidoki style.
There are a fixed number of forty pay lines in this game, and you pay one coin per line. You also pay twenty coins on top for this games' additional features. You can select the value of your coin, from 0.01 to 10.00. Your final bet-per-spin is your coin size multiplied by sixty. When you're ready to catch the bus to Lucky Town, hit the spin button.
Payout & bonus rounds
A ten is the lowest pay-out available here. Tens will win you two coins if you land three of them on a pay line. The top prize is the tokidoki logo (a heart and cross-bones), which will win you 500 coins.
The tokidoki logo also acts as a wild symbol and substitutes for SANDy, Donutella, Stellina and Mozzarella, plus any playing card symbol. There's a second logo symbol in this game with a '2x' upon it that only appears on reel three during the base game. Any win containing this wild is doubled. This wild shifts one reel to the left on each Reel Reveal Spin.
A spinning record triggers the 'Reel Reveal' feature and only appears on the right-hand reel during the base game. When it lands, it shifts one reel to the left. This brings forward a new reel and introduces one of the following features:
- Revealed Reel 1 – Caramella is wild and triggers a random wild feature where up to three reel positions turn wild
- Revealed Reel 2 – Truffle awards you a multiplier from 2x to 15x that will multiple all your wins on the current reel reveal spin
- Revealed Reel 3 – Pogo is wild and triggers the expanding wild feature that turns the two adjacent reel positions to the left wild
- Revealed Reel 4 – Pick a Latte carton to win between 1x and 10x your total bet
- Revealed Reel 5 – Any character wild symbol triggers the 'Symbol Upgrade' feature and turns all matching character symbols wild
This game is likely to drive you a little batty if you're not into tokidoki. The sounds and graphics are very child-like, but nevertheless very effective. The 'Reel Reveal' feature is certainly something not seen before in a online slot, and it's always great to play a game that brings something new to the slots table. Seasoned gamblers will seriously avoid this slot, but for those who just enjoy a bit of fun Lucky Town is worthwhile destination.
