Tiki Reward Review
The Maori culture is well-preserved within the game’s theme, as the music and sound effects are bang on spectacular. The graphics aren’t too shabby either, as the overall layout and design have a compact, vividly-coloured scheme.
The symbol list covers 9 to A card royals along with five “premium” symbols represented by stone-carved critters. The “Turtle” symbol is the top-paying logo, but do not get your expectations too high, as it awards just a 2.5x the bet size when landing a full set of five.
WILD symbols come in three different colours (RED, GREEN, BLUE) and will substitute everything except the SCATTER (FREE SPINS SYMBOL) and the Tiki Wilds that do not correspond the colour. Furthermore, the WILDS appear only on reels 2, 3 and 4 and may sometimes have a 2x multiplier that can stack-up should multiple Wilds will contain the 2X value.
When it comes to the volatility, players should expect nothing less than a high variance rating. Due to the jackpot features, the spinning session in the base game may seem challenging, although the hit frequency percentage (25.75%) will not make you feel completely stranded in the Polynesian Triangle.
Tiki Reward RTP
The Tiki Reward RTP is 96.32%. With its high volatility rating, the game offers just enough action to keep the punters hooked in the hunt for the jackpots, which in fairness, they come quite often.
Tiki Reward Jackpot Feature
Each Tiki Wild (BLUE, RED or GREEN) have a respective jackpot prize which triggers once a full set of Masks land on reels 2, 3 and 4. The Golden Mask awards the biggest jackpot prize, which is always set at 1000x the total bet size. Additionally, each time a WILD MASK jackpot is granted, the payout prizes are re-rolled correspondingly.
Tiki Reward Free Spins Feature
Sunset logo (FREE SPINS SCATTER) lands only on reels 2, 3 and 4 and will trigger seven free spins. Throughout the bonus feature, the middle reels are randomly highlighted into a specific colour matching one of the Mask Wilds. During the spin, the respective Wild symbol along with the Golden Mask may appear on reels 2, 3 and 4.
Each scatters landing anywhere on reels 2, 3 and 4 will add one extra free spin. During the bonus feature, the players are guaranteed to win at least one jackpot prize. Another critical point of this free spins feature is that it can prove to be quite generous, as we managed to hit several jackpots in a short span of spins.
Tiki Reward Slot Review Summary & Verdict
Microgaming and All41Studios have added another exotic –themed slot machine under their belt, and it’s perfectly fine with us. Tiki Reward is impressive through its simplicity, indeed being capable of appealing to the broad audience of players.
Combining the thrill of an imminent jackpot prize along with suspense sound effects resembling a tribe battle cry formation, Tiki Reward looks like a game that a player will always return for a few casual spins.
On a downside note, the symbol payout table looks relatively modest, definitely not suitable for high-rollers hunting a huge payout coming of the payline combinations. However, the hit frequency is not alarming. If we take in consideration the possibility of hitting a jackpot prize with a multiplier, then things feel better all of a sudden.
