Thanks to the wide range of stakes on Tiki Tumble the slot is accessible to both low-limit and high rollers. Bets can be placed on the 20 fixed pay lines from as little as 0.20 per spin up to an impressive 100.00 per spin. Players need to take heed though as they will need a fair stack to handle the challenging volatility that is Tiki Tumble.
The large reel set is filled with stacks of totem spirit characters as well as vibrant, brightly coloured gems, and although pay outs for these symbols are a little low they do range from x4 – x500 of the players line bet. It is the stacks of symbols that will help players to gain multiple line wins, and the wilds can substitute to create even more winning combinations. The biggest wins come from the special nudging feature and the Tiki bonus round. There are two special character symbols which look the most manic with their razor-sharp teeth and glowing eyes. The wild is represented by a beige character with a huge scarlet gem attached to its forehead, whilst the scatter is the gold character that has a blue diamond clamped between its huge jaws. Players that manage to land three or more of the scatters will activate the bonus, and the jaws morph into a cracking grin thanks to the animate excellent animation. Most players will find that they cannot help but smile but it must be said that this could be quite unnerving to some.
Players will need to hold their nerve as these two special characters are the key to winning some superb prizes, coupled with the fiery spirits of the totem will see the lucky player being bestowed with nudging wilds and the Tiki bonus wins. The wilds can land in stacks on the reels and if players are lucky enough to land then on one of the top three positions the nudging wild feature will come into play, this feature is what gamers would refer to as shifting wilds.
The wild reel nudges down one position per spin whilst the other reels continue. The feature appears quite frequently but there is no guarantee that it will bring in a win, but land wild stacks on the first or second position and players can expect some great wins. When it comes to the golden mask scatters these tend to be extremely illusive but patient players will certainly be well rewarded for their efforts. The Tiki bonus rewards then with free spins, but unlike normal free spins these start with the second and fourth reels being filled with stacked wilds, and there is also a multiplier meter situated to the right, this starts initially with x1, x2 or x3 dependent on whether the player lands 3, 4 or 5 scatters.
Next the free spins will start with the second and fourth reels nudging down by one position per spin, with the free spins and multipliers rising indefinitely. When it comes to Tiki Tumble we advise players to play for free to get the hang of things and when they are confident play for real, it is worth remembering that this is not the type of slot that you can play in a few minutes as you need to be in for the long haul to really reap the best rewards.
