Tiki Totems Megaways
Get ready for a tropical reel adventure on the slot from Roxor Gaming. Tiki Totems Megaways is taking you on a scenic journey across six dynamic reels with cascading symbols, reactive wins, wild substitutions and a free spins round with unlimited multipliers and retriggers that can lead to wins of up to 20,000 times your bet.
Tiki Totems Megaways is a cascading video with six dynamic reels, two to seven rows and 324 to 117,649 ways to win, using the trademarked game engine from Big Time Gaming. Pays are awarded for two to six matching symbols landing on adjacent reels from left to right only. Available on desktop, mobile and tablet, you can bet from 0.20 to 20 credits per spin. The game has high volatility with an RTP of 96.13%.
The number of bet ways is randomly determined for every spin by cascading between 2 and 7 pay symbols onto reels one and six as well as 2 to 6 pay symbols onto reels two to five. Additionally, the game has an extra horizontal reel at the top of the game window with four positions, extending from reel two to five, where more symbols appear on every spin. Together, it provides a virtually unlimited number of reel and row combinations ranging from the minimum 324 ways up to the maximum of 117,649.
The visuals almost identical to the original Tiki Totems slot Roxor Gaming released in 2017. Loading the game will take you to a sandy beach on a Polynesian island with crystal clear seas and a volcano in the background. The game window is framed with bamboo and palm trees while a Tiki family populates the reels.
The pay symbols start at the low end with card royals from 9 through to A, awarding 0.8x to 1.75x your bet for a single six of a kind. They are followed by Tiki Totems on green, blue and red icons as well as a shiny crown. Hit six across the reels to win 2x to 50x your bet. A blazing Tiki Totem is the wild symbol, appearing on the horizontal reel only and substituting for all regular pay symbols. A drum with a question mark is the mystery symbols while a golden Tiki Totem acts as the scatter. The latter will change into an iced Tiki in the free spins.
Tiki Totems Megaways Slot Features
Roxor Gaming is the latest provider to join the seemingly unstoppable Megaways train, choosing one of its most popular slots for their debut. Tiki Totems was heavily promoted at Gamesys casinos including StarSpins or Jackpot Joy. It will be not much different for the Megaways upgrade and a first look indicates that it is very similar to Blueprint’s Diamond Mine Megaways.
At the core of the action is the Megaways game engine with cascading symbols and reactive wins. Each spin start with symbols dropping from the top onto the six reels based on the random selection of reel positions. In addition, the extra carts at the top of the game window spin four symbols into view abeam reels two to five adding an extra symbol position to those reels. A display in the top-right corner shows the total amount of active ways to win for the spin.
Wins are paid for two to six adjacent symbols from left to right. The symbols from a winning combination are part of a reaction which will see them explode to make room for new symbols to cascade into place. This will continue as long as a new winning combination occurs after a reaction. Wins are accumulated from all cascades and paid before the next spin starts.
Drum symbols with question marks can appear on all reels on any spin in the base game and free spins. The mystery symbols will reveal one common symbol once the reels have stopped, including the top-paying Tiki Papa symbols and wilds. However, they cannot contain scatter symbols.
To trigger 12 Free Spins you will need to land four golden Tiki Totem scatters anywhere on the main reels within a single spin sequence that can include multiple cascades. Any extra scatter symbol landing at the same time will add +5 free spins to the tally. During the feature iced Tiki scatters will appear the top reel only, awarding +5 spins for three and +10 spins for four scatters respectively. The key to finding vast treasures on the tropical Tiki island is the unlimited progressive win multiplier in the free spins. It starts at x1 and increases by x1 after every winning reaction, with no limit on the maximum.
As mentioned earlier, the Megaways train seems unstoppable as an ever-increasing number of game developers sign a licence with Big Time Gaming. While that gives players more choice, it becomes apparent that many are pure clones of existing Megaways slots. Nothing wrong to use a tried-and-tested formula but some more creativity would be welcome. Time will tell whether Roxor Gaming will rise to the occasion and release something more elaborate and original in the future.
