This week, SlotBeats has gone to the South Pacific as it awarded its Slot of the Week award to Synot Games’ most recent title, Tiki Princess.
Taking players to the island of Hawaii for a taste of coconut water and the sounds of the ukulele, the 5×3 tropical title features 20 ways to win, and includes features such as wilds, free spins, respins, special wins and a Hold and Win mechanic.
In the game, scatter symbols pay at any position across the board. Only the highest win is paid per active payline and per scatter combination, and scatter wins are added to the payline wins
Moving onto the game’s wild symbol, this substitutes for all other symbols except the bonus scatter, and appears only on reels two, three, four and five. These can expand to fill the whole reel.
During the base game and free spins, the bonus symbols can carry either a value from x1 up to x20 the total bet or a special win – mini, minor or major. The bonus symbols award their payouts only during the hold and win feature.
Moreover, if players land six or more bonus symbols anywhere on the reels, they will trigger the hold and win feature with three initial respins. The bonus symbols that triggered the hold and win feature will remain in place on the reels during the whole feature. If any new bonus symbols appear on the reels, they will remain in place and the respin count will be reset to three.
The hold and win feature ends if no new bonus symbols land on the reels during the respins, or if all 15 positions are filled with bonus symbols. The grand win is awarded if all 15 positions are filled with bonus symbols. The wins from the hold and win feature are added up and awarded at the end of the feature.
Additionally, landing three or more scatter symbols trigger six free spins. During the feature, reels two, three and four are linked and spin as one, but are still considered separate for win evaluation. Furthermore, the bonus and scatter symbols appear only on the linked reel and the full scatter symbol awards additional three free spins. A maximum of 15 free spins can be played during one feature.
Lastly, players are able to gamble any win not exceeding £125,000. In the card-based gamble feature, players must guess the colour of the next revealed card. A correct guess doubles the win, however, a wrong guess means the win will be lost.
The title comes with an RTP of between 88 and 98 per cent with a high volatility level implemented within the gameplay. Readers who would like to read more about Synot Games’ Tiki Princess can click here to be redirected to the supplier’s official website.
