Tahiti Gold Slot Review – ELK Studios
ELK Studios is one of the smaller studios in the casino industry; the provider was underrated for a long time even with some high slots, such as my old favourite ‘Hong Kong Tower.’ But ELK studios has had recent big success with slot release ‘Ecuador Gold,’ this slot had such great feedback from the casino community, and everyone was playing it on stream when released. The game had great potential with unique mechanics, after the success of another game titled ‘CHI,’ was released by the studio. Not as excited as Ecuador gold but again had great feedback. Now we have their next match announced; the new slot is a sequel no one would expect. The next release from ELK Studios is titled ‘Tahiti Gold‘ with a release date of June 11th.
The slot title might look familiar to some of you; that’s because this is a sequel to ‘Ecuador Gold.’ With the big success, it seems ELK wanted to make the most out of their best game while it was still somewhat excited. This slot is based on Kane’s plane breaking down and leaving him on a distant volcanic island while trying to leave Ecuador. Kanes is declared king by natives and now has a mission to find all gold that his new kingdom processes. So the theme is a native island with new and unique artwork. In the slot background, you see palm trees and stone sculptures surrounding the slot itself.
The slot setup is 6 reels by 4-8 rows, this includes 4096 -262,144 ways. This slot is high variance with a max win capped at 5,000x and set RTP of 96.1%. You can bet from £0.20 – £100.
Tahiti Gold Slot Review Symbols & Paytable
This slot has 15 symbols in total, this includes 8 low paying symbols. These are represented by wooden carved symbols with different vibrant colours and also lizards, turtles, sharks and frogs. There are also 4 premium symbols represented by 3 different carved totems and Kane himself with his golden crown. There is also a wild symbol and bonus symbol. The wild substitutes for all other paying symbols and is sticky for the bonus feature. All symbols can appear as big symbols, they can appear as 2×2,3×3 and 4×4 in both base game and bonus.
Tahiti Gold Slot Review Features
Tahiti Gold has many different features to benefit from, the first is called ‘Wild Force‘. Wild forge symbols may drop on rows 3-6, this symbol will lock in place and will fill empty symbol positions below with wilds.
The second feature is called ‘Avalanche‘, All symbols part of wins will explode and allow other symbols to fall in place, an additional row of symbols is added up to a max of 8 rows. This feature will continue until no winning combinations occur. This feature occurs in both base game and bonus.
The third feature is called ‘Eye Of Tiki‘, two or more tiki symbols are required to trigger this feature. This will remove all symbols within the surrounding area and will add an additional row.
Central to this slot is the bonus feature, this is activated by landing 3 or more volcano scatter symbols. 3 Scatters Award = 10 Drops, 4 Scatters Award = 15 Drops, 5 Scatters Award = 20 Drops And 6 Scatters = 25 Drops. During these free spins, all wilds are sticky for the duration of the feature, all features are in play too. Ways can be increased and once maxed will stay maxed for the rest of the spins. This bonus feature has crazy potential and very fun to play through.
Overall, I absolutely loved playing this slot. This sequel is great as it is inspired by the original and has the addition of new features. This slot has great potential with a max win of 5,000x, which is a big improvement from Ecuador Gold. ELK studios have listened to feedback and incorporated it into this sequel which is great for Ecuador Gold Fans. I am glad ELK is no longer an underrated provider and look forward to what’s next from them.
