Tiki Island is a Gamesys slot machine, with a total of 5 reels offered inside and with up to 20 paylines selectable for betting purposes. They’ve made sure to place inside a number of bonus features, wilds, scatter symbols and payouts that look very good on that paytable (10,000x multiple).The design is one of the areas where the game could use a lot more work, but overall it’s not a bad experience and chances are that you would enjoy playing it.
There are two components to the betting system, the player having access to both of them. The first one would be the selection of the number of paylines found in the game. The Bet One and Bet Max buttons are the ones to be used in this case. The first one will increase the number of coins/lines by 1 each time it’s clicked, while the Bet Max option will simply select all 20 lines and use 20 coins on them. The job is not done though, as the player also has the Coin Size option that he can use. It starts at just $0.01 and it can be raised as high as $10. That’s the amount you use for each selected line, so the maximum possible bet uses 20 coins worth $10 each, for a total bet of $200.
Payouts of up to 10,000 coins are going to be awarded in this game, as long as the player gets the right five symbols on an active payline. The coin size that was used will determine just how much cash will reach the player’s pockets, the highest possible amount being $100,000 (when $10 coins are used). The second best payout offered is worth 1,000 coins or up to $10,000.
A Tiki Island logo is used to represent the wild symbol of the game. It’s a regular feature of this type, with no major additions to its capabilities. It has no multipliers and no expansion capabilities, but it will award the game’s top payout.
Three types of scatter symbols are possible here, which is great news since that means that you will have an easier time getting them to do their thing.
The first one would be the scatter with the shield and the spears, a symbol that awards prizes when three to five of them are present. The payouts start at 5x the bet value and go up to 100x the total bet value.
The second scatter, with the coconut on it, will be limited to appearances on reels 3 to 5. Tiki Island Nuts is the bonus game triggered when there are three coconuts present. The player gets to shoot at the 9 coconuts that show up on the next screen, getting a prize each time. The game ends either when Collect is found or when the coconuts are gone.
The final feature offered here is the Puffer Fish bonus round, activated by the presence of three puffer fish scatters on the first three reels (1,2,3). It’s another simple choice game, where you click on various fish and get paid. We found a guide that talks you through this level in depth.
Tiki Island might not offer you a great design and it’s not going to impress anyone on that account, but it is a game that you can have fun with, especially if money and features are more important to you. The game is available to be played at a number of sites such as Virgin Games and Heart Bingo.
