Tiki Wonders is a 5 Reel, 30 Pay-line Video Slot with 2 Progressive Jackpots up for grabs. A product of the impressive Net Entertainment stable, its Progressive jackpots are drawn from the same pool as the other titles in the Wonders’ series; Icy Wonders and Geisha Wonders.
One of the big attractions of the Video Slot genre is the Bonus Round that they often feature, with an exciting mini-game to break up the action of the base game. Unfortunately, Tiki Wonders does not feature a Bonus Game, a fact that lets it down. The cute theme, graphics and sound effects are quite fun and enjoyable, so a Bonus Game would have been a great plus. Reel symbols include Geckos, Dolphins, Turtles and Toucans, with tropical cocktails winning you the smaller pay-outs!
What Tiki Wonders does have is Free Spins and Wild Symbols that seem to spin in quite freely. The Free Spins Round is unlocked by spinning in at least 3 Hula Girl symbols, anywhere in view across the 5 reels. The resulting Free Spins round will give you the chance to treble your money with an X3 Multiplier in play. You can, of course, also extend your Free Spins if you happen to spin in more Scatter symbols.
The biggest pay-out is for spinning in 5 Cannibal (Wild) symbols, which will earn you 10,000 credits per coin wagered. This is a pretty big pay-out for a non-Progressive jackpot, and could be worth $20,000 (or whatever currency you are gambling with) at the maximum stakes. This would mean a better pay-out than the smaller of the two Progressive jackpot, which is typically in the high 4-figures or low 5-figures in terms of pay-outs.
The Progressive jackpots are won by spinning in 4 or 5 stars across the active pay-lines, and of course the higher your stakes the better the odds on you spinning them in. The higher of the two progressives is the Mega Wonder jackpot. This is typically in the mid-to-high 5-figures, but it can often top 100,000.
The RTP (Return to Player) for Tiki Wonders is 93.2%, which is at the lower end of what you would expect for a Video Slot. When you also consider the absence of a Bonus Game, it rather spoils a game that has a fun and appealing theme. The key attraction of this game would have to be the non-progressive pay-out, which could easily dwarf the smaller of the two Progressive and would probably be similar odds to win.
