Coco Tiki slot design
Feel the warm sea breeze and warm sand while walking barefoot along the beach. Imagine passing through palm trees and drinking fresh juice straight from the coconut. This is the effect of Coco Tiki’s beach theme which is available all year round.
In this slot, you can visit the beach any time and enjoy that summer heat while playing. The game is full of colorful and fun animations that can entertain you. With the help of its sea creatures and special symbols, you can also activate the features.
Of course, let’s not forget the chill tropical music that plays in the background. This makes the holiday gaming experience complete regardless of your location and current weather.
Coco Tiki features
Coco Tiki’s game area has 3 reels and 3 rows where you can form winning combinations with at least 3 matching symbols. Coco Tiki’s reels are packed with exciting features that can improve your gaming experience and winning potential. So, let’s check how each feature can make the game fun with the specific symbols on the reels:
Wild and Special Symbols
First things first, let’s check out Coco Tiki’s Wild symbol which is represented by a Bottle with a scroll inside. The Bottle Wild symbol appears on the reels and is replaced by an X Sticky symbol. The Scroll with an X symbol also functions as a Wild symbol that can replace any symbol on the pay lines.
Thus, this X symbol comes in handy when it comes to creating more winning combinations while a bonus feature is active. The X Wild symbol can also keep its position and continue to replace other symbols to create more winning combos. However, the special symbols of Coco Tiki don’t end with the X symbol since there is also an O symbol.
The O symbol is also written on a Scroll paper which can only appear during the bonus round. Compared with the previous Wild symbols, this special symbol doesn’t payout which is why it is our least favorite symbol. At the same time, this O symbol doesn’t function as a replacement symbol for other regular symbols.
Coco Tiki Bonus Round
Every time the Bottle symbol lands, it reveals the Scroll with the X symbol to activate the Coco Tiki Bonus Round. Once this Coco Tiki feature is triggered, all the spins you make are completely free. Also, the Bottle Wild symbol is replaced by the X symbol which is mentioned as a Sticky Wild symbol above.
During the Coco Tiki Bonus Round, the Bottle Wild symbol can reveal either the X or O wild symbol. Since the X symbol works as a Wild, it can contribute to forming new winning combos. Once this X symbol appeared in this round, all wins are calculated and paid out before resetting back to the base game. Moreover, the X symbol can fill up one of the tropical drinks in the meter that is beside the Tiki character.
But if you get the O symbol, the bonus round will automatically end which is a little frustrating. However, all line wins you get will be rewarded right away. In this round, the game will return to the base game and the tropical drink meter will stay the same.
Tiki Bar Bonus Round
Once all 4 tropical drinks are filled during the base game, the Tiki Bar Bonus Round will be triggered. After triggering this feature, 3 coconut shells will appear on the screen and one contains a Pearl. The Coco Tiki character in the game reveals the Pearl and the current prize that is being played. Then, the character shuffles and mixes the coconuts on the screen.
In this round, you should choose the coconut that you think is hiding the reward. If you chose an empty coconut, the bonus round will automatically end and the game will return to the base round. But if you are lucky to pick a coconut that hides the prize, you can have an opportunity to choose your reward. You can either take a bonus prize and return to the base game or proceed on playing to the next level.
The next level can give you a bigger prize. On the other hand, you can also risk losing your initial bonus prizes if you choose to proceed to the next level. So, these are the available prizes that you can get in each round during this bonus round:
- Level 1 = 5 Bonus Spins
- Level 2 = 15 Bonus Spins
- Level 3 = 25 Bonus Spins and x2 Multiplier
When you proceed to play these levels and get the Bonus Spins, no Bottle Wild symbols will appear on the reels. Therefore, there is no chance of retriggering the bonus round.
Coco Tiki RTP, betting and prizes
There are 5 standard symbols that you can come across in Coco Tiki’s game area with 5 pay lines. All of these symbols are inspired by the sea creatures to match its beach theme. The lowest paying symbol among these sea creatures is the Green Fish with big eyes that pay 0.6x the total stake. Meanwhile, the remaining creatures such as the Turtle, Jellyfish, and a Fish with purple and yellow color pays 1.2x, 2x, and 3x the total stake.
To win, you just need 3 matching symbols on an active pay line to form a winning cluster. Coco Tiki accepts bets that range from £0.50 to £45 on each spin. This betting range makes Coco Tiki a good option for all kinds of players. With its low maximum bet, low wagers can play longer even with a smaller bankroll.
As for the odds, it is slightly lower than the games we usually review. All Mancala Gaming slots have a 95% RTP so you can’t expect much from its payout. When it comes to its maximum payout, winnings in Coco Tiki can pay up to 300x your stake.
This is not the best payout you can get from Mancala Gaming. However, this is a medium variance game so it has an average winning frequency.
