You’re transported to a distant volcano island with more mystery enshrined within it than you may care for – so what do you do? You play a slot game, of course.
The Tahiti Gold slot game by ELK Studios takes a deep dive into this culture and attempts to do two things: educate us and, obviously, entertain.
With 6 reels to play with it becomes immediately evident that the Tahiti Gold slot game isn’t like any of its competitors, especially when it comes to the ways to win – totally up to 4,096. In fact, if you use the Avalanche feature down the road, that goes up to an absolutely mindblowing 262,144 ways to win.
A string of carved-out images and symbols are on the boards to fit in nicely with the theming, including a turtle, a gecko, a shark and even a frog.
The return to player (RTP) percentage is a valid figure that needs to be taken seriously, if only because it offers an insight into the financial rewards that could be on the table for players out there. The same is true for the Tahiti Gold slot game with the reported RTP coming in at 96.10%, and while that may be below the standard average, the medium volatility means that smaller and more consistent wins are definitely possible.
It only costs a low minimum stake of $/€/£0.20 to get started with this slot alongside a maximum of $/€/£100, and from there, you could even capture up to 5,000x your initial stake.
Visually speaking this slot stuck with the theming really nicely and created a gritty atmosphere that, while maybe off-putting to some, makes us feel like we go on a real journey with the storyline.
The aforementioned Avalanche feature seeing the contributing symbols of a winning combination explode, allowing more symbols to drop in – which can increase the number of rows you play with. You can have between 4 and 8 rows, increasing the number of ways to win with each and every row. As well as this you’ve got the Big Symbols feature which can give you some huge winning potential from standard (1×1) symbols all the way up to epic (4×4) symbols.
The Wild Forge symbol and Eye of Tiki symbol both serve as wilds and if you reach the Free Spins feature, they could turn into sticky wilds.
The bonus symbol can also pop up on all reels with three or more of them triggering the Free Drops Bonus feature – handing you between 10 and 25 free spins.
From there you could be transported to the Niki Nakas world in the bonus mode, and in what can only be described as an entirely different setting, three or more bonus symbols can give you even more free spins.
The Tahiti Gold slot game is complex and features a whole lot of detail, but the most important thing is that their risk paid off – in our mind, anyway.
ELK Studios wanted to give Adventurer Kane another story that we could follow and enjoy, and from the potential winnings to the extravagant bonus gameplay, we’d say they’ve succeeded.
