Thousands of Ways to Win
The “all ways” format has been used by a lot of online slots over the past decade or more to offer players a lot of ways to get paid on the same exact spin, and the upcoming Tahiti Gold video slot takes this idea to the max.
This game has been announced by ELK Studios for a June 11, 2019, release, and players are anticipating it to a great degree.
One of the first things you’ll notice is that this game does not take in the usual five-reel format. Instead, the symbols fall in a grid with six columns and four to eight rows, and this leads to a total of up to 262,144 ways to win on every single spin. To say that this gives players a tremendous amount of action would be the understatement of the year.
Special Features and Extra Opportunities to Win
The regular format for this game has six effective reels with four rows for 4,096 ways to win. However, there’s a special Avalanche feature that can drive more symbols down onto the set, and this can expand things to as many as eight rows and as many as 262,144 ways to get paid on each turn with tons of incremental possibilities in between.
This is a very innovative way of handling the format that we can’t remember having seen before, but that’s not all. You’ll also see huge symbols that can take up several spots on the reels in 2×2, 3×3 and 4×4 varieties. These definitely help players to get a lot of extra prizes thanks to the all ways approach to how the pays are determined, but there’s even more available beyond that.
Players can earn up to 25 free spins by getting at least three of the volcano symbols on the reels, and you can actually re-trigger this repeatedly.
Moreover, you’ll have better chances for avalanches during this feature, which amounts to these free spins being worth more than their regular counterparts.
Finally, there’s the Eye of Tiki feature. Get a few eye symbols on the reels, and the area between them will explode after your spin to allow new symbols to fall down in place for what amounts to a free re-spin with free chances to get additional payouts.
The Gold Series of Slots
ELK Studios has been producing their Gold Series of slots that started with Ecuador Gold and that has continued with this game Tahiti Gold. It’ll progress in the future with another game called Voodoo Gold, but that game hasn’t been officially announced or given teasers yet.
We think it’s great that they are tying games together in a series like this, especially considering that it’s an atypical theme to do this type of thing with and considering that the graphics and gameplay are excellent across both installments in the series so far.
ELK Studios has definitely done a good job with promoting this with the actual quality of the slots in the first place instead of trying to sell players on something that’s all flash with no substance. These games are designed in a way that will make players want to stick with them for longer sessions because the hit-rate is pretty serious and the swings aren’t bad at all. However, you can still win up to €500,000 in a single win with this game, so it’s not like they’ve limited your ability to get big payouts either.
