After taking you to Ecuador, intrepid explorer Kane takes you to the Pacific Ocean in the ELK Studios video slot Tahiti Gold. Benefiting from an expanding reel set with up to 262,144 ways to win, the slot will provide you with a thrilling and potentially rewarding gaming experience. If you get lucky, you can hit up to 5,000x your total bet in a single spin.
A tropical scene can be seen behind the reel set flanked by two pillars made of wood totems. The reels are home to symbols which also look like made of wood which contributes to an overall atmosphere the game creates. The game is played on a 6x4 grid with 4,096 ways to win initially. All you have to do before you set the reels in motion is choose a total bet which can be anywhere from $0.20 to $100 per spin. Just like other ELK titles, Tahiti Gold offers four different betting strategies that will adjust the stake for you based on your performance. If you don’t feel like spinning the reels manually, activate up to 100 automatic spins.
Kane himself is the top paying symbol in the game. Along with three different Tahiti masks, he makes up the upper ends of the paytable. The rest of positions are filled with different animals and symbols like the sun and mountains that pay prizes of lower value. Land 3 or more symbols of a kind left to right and you will win a prize. Thanks to the Avalanche feature, whenever you hit a win, successful icons are destroyed and replaced by new ones. What’s more, each avalanche adds one more row to the grid thus increasing the number of winning ways and chances of winning.
The games features a range of special symbols starting with regular Wild that will help you complete more winning combos. Another useful special symbol is called Wild Forge. It hits the reels 3, 4, 5 and 6 to activate the bonus feature of the same name. Thanks to it, Wild Forge will create Wild in empty spaces below it after an avalanche takes place. What’s more, it locks in its position and stays there as long as avalanches happen.
To benefit from the Eye of Tiki symbol, you need two of these anywhere on the reels. On a non-winning spin, these special symbols make all symbols between them to explode thus providing you with an additional chance of winning. Throughout the game, you can also make use of Super, Mega and Epic symbols covering 2x2, 3x3 and 4x4 positions to boost your winning chances. These symbols destroy regular icons on their way.
Land 3 or Bonus symbols anywhere in view to unlock the Free Drops Bonus feature awarding between 10 and 25 free spins. The feature is played in the world of the Nika Nakas, where you will enjoy extraordinary nature with waterfalls and fluorescent lights. It starts at the safety level with 4 rows and whenever you win, the safety level advances by 1. The grid can expand to 8 rows with 262,144 ways to win. During free drops, all Wilds generated by the Wild Forge feature turn sticky.
Another ELK title that may seem complicated, but once you start playing it, you will enjoy every second of the gameplay. Keep in mind that this is another high volatility slot from the Swedish developer that can drain your bankroll if you don’t manage it properly and at the same time, pay some big prizes. The RTP of Tahiti Gold sits at 96.1%, which promises great value for the invested money.
