As summer heats up, staying indoors becomes more appealing by the day. Luckily, slot players are uniquely positioned to enjoy the summer holidays from the comfort of their homes thanks to the wide array of paradise-themed games that attempt to capture player interest every year. One of the more memorable and successful additions to this growing sub-genre is Tiki Fruits Totem Frenzy, a Red Tiger title (one of NetEnt’s sister outfits under the Evolution umbrella) that promises players a sun-filled adventure.
Are you interested in learning more about Tiki Fruits Totem Frenzy? Let’s take a closer look at its features.
Tiki Fruits Totem Frenzy Preview
Red Tiger is well-known for its intriguing games. Tiki Fruits Totem Frenzy is no exception. The 7×9 grid offers players 3,319x potential along with bright, clear symbols. From bananas to golden bells and dice, the slot’s grid is large enough to keep players engaged while simple enough to avoid overwhelming them.
Anyone interested in enjoying some time in the sun without leaving their house will appreciate Tiki Fruits Totem Frenzy’s convincing background of deep blue water and palm trees along with the titular totems that stand either side of the grid. It is a light-hearted design meant to impart a sense of peace and quiet, which it does with aplomb.
Outside of the title’s aesthetics, Red Tiger’s new release has a few fun bonus features, too! The expansive grid features four sleeping sticky tiki masks that serve as the game’s wilds. When players land a win that is adjacent to the masks, they wake up and are turned into wilds. These substitute all regular pay symbols and will disappear after a win.
Players trigger the bonus round by converting all four of the tiki masks into active wilds in a single spin sequence. This process awards players 10 Tiki free spins that can be boosted up to 15 at random points of the game. The masks remain wild during the entirety of the feature.
All in all, Tiki Fruits Totem Frenzy is a beautiful game with a large board, inviting graphics, and the potential for big wins. It might not be the most unique release the developer has launched; however, it is a fun title with engaging gameplay none the less. One of the few downsides is the game’s slight lacklustre 95.69% RTP.
We’ve already mentioned the game’s slightly lower than average RTP (95.69% to be precise), but the game’s volatility is also classed as ‘High’. Stakes start from as low as €0.10 and go up to a maximum of €20 each spin. If you’re really lucky, there is a maximum win on offer of 3,319 x your wager (quick maths – that’s a potential €66,380 windfall at the upper limit of the stakes) but this will highly unlikely to fall into place for most players. Depending on where you’re playing from, Tiki Fruits Totem Frenzy includes many of the usual play features, including Turbo Spins and Autoplay and you can also set loss limits too.
Tiki Fruits Totem Frenzy Paylines
The layout of Tiki Fruits Totem Extreme is pretty unusual, and can take a bit of getting used to at first if you’re not familiar with the Cluster Pays format. It is, at its most basic, a 7-reel, 9-row grid which pays out in a cascades. This means that you need to match no fewer than 5 symbols in any combination of vertical and horizontal clusters. Sound complicated?! Don’t worry, it all becomes clear very quickly and will soon be second nature.
The only thing to note is, because of this non-standard, payline structure it’s going to be rare to stack up any big wins without relying on some of the bonus features (which, luckily, we’ve described in detail for you below!).
Tiki Fruits Totem Extreme Features
There are always four Tiki Mask symbols within the reels at all times. These do not move, ever – not even when a space opens up underneath. However, when there is a cluster win in a payline next to a Tiki Mask, these will then turn WILD (these substitute for any paying symbols). This in turn activates the nearest Totem Head.
TOTEM FRENZY COLLECT – When 2 Totems on the same side of the reels are active, they may gather one type of fruit symbol from the reels. That fruit will not appear from the new symbols that fall during that spin. During TIKI SPINS, the fruit symbols gathered will be used to fill the progress bars
TOTEM FRENZY REMOVE – When 2 Totems from the same side of the reels are active, they may remove all symbols from the reels, and new ones will fall in to replace them.
TOTEM FRENZY GENEROSITY – The rarest of the Totem Frenzy drops, line up 3 Tiki Masks which also happen to be WILD but without a win, and there is a chance that the active totem will hit the slot and turn the final mask WILD, activating TIKI SPINS.
To be rewarded with a minimum of 10 TIKI SPINS, you have to turn all sleeping Tiki Masks Wild. Following this, your 10 Tiki Spins may be increased to 15 by the large Tiki mask. During the Tiki Spin game mode, all mask symbols remain Wild. Any wins formed by the fruit symbols will add to their progress bar (which needs 35 fruits to be completed) and will only be removed from the reels when the bar is full.
