ALL ABOUT TIKI TREASURES MEGWAYS™ SLOT
The workers in the Blueprint Megaways™ factory must be getting overtime this year as they churn out slot after slot in an effort to leave their rivals for dust in the race to become the kings of the expanding reels format.
There is of course a very real danger of slot fatigue if we carry on in this direction – many of Blueprint’s Megways™ games, this one included, have not built on the Bonanza template, but instead run with the same features as the original time after time. That’s Ok in this case where the design carries it, but it won’t be long before the buzz where’s off and some new innovation is required.
For now though, Tiki Treasures is another slot filled with high-risk bedlam that we’re happy to enjoy as we chase down that 10,000x top payout.
Tiki Treaures Megaways™ Themes, Gameplay, Symbols and PayTables
As the name suggests, this Megaways™ slot has a jungle feel, with what look like palms and totems adawning the backdrop to what is an impressive looking reel set. The game plays out on the usual six reels with symbols from two to seven rows high, creating up to 117,649 ways to win per spin.
Look out for low value symbols, 9 through to Ace, and premium ones made up of four different colored masks, with a top payout of 50x for the green one. There is also a wild that substitutes for all other symbols except for the scatter.
Tiki Treasures Megaways™ Features
Tiki Treasures is a classic Megaways™ game with the cascading wins feature. For each winning spin, winning symbols are removed from the reels to be replaced with new ones. The sequence continues until no more winlines are created. Cascading Wins continue in the free spins round where combining with multipliers they can produce astonishing win sequences.
Look out for the Question Mark symbols which are Mystery Symbols. When they land, each one will transform into another of the same type to create more win chances.
To trigger the free spins round you will need to land scatters spelling out T-I-K-I. When this happens there is a choice of four settings:
- 15 spins with a 1x multiplier.
- 10 spins with a 5x multiplier.
- 5 spins with a 10x multiplier.
- Mystery Choice – random spins and multiplier.
As with all Megaways™ titles the objective is to keep landing those cascading wins where each consecutive win increases your multiplier by 1x, with no upper limit. This creates enormous potential and has seen some crazy payouts. In this case the top value is 10,000x.
It is also possible to re-trigger the bonus round by landing three or more scatters again.
The Jackpot King is the additional feature that gives this game an edge over other template-Megaways™ slots. Land four Jackpot King symbols and enter the round. Now the reels spin and you collect crowns and progress up a ladder. You need 15 or more crowns to enter a Wheel King round where the progressive pot is up for grabs.
THE SLOT BUZZ VERDICT
Tiki Treasures is a very generic slot in all ways, except for the addition of the Jackpot King feature. The Tiki theme has been done many times over, and the Megaways™ model has been flogged this year. So if you’re looking for a new experience, try elsewhere. But if you simple want another front to your Megaways™ play, this will do your nicely.
