Push Gaming lets you follow in the footsteps of Norway’s famous explorer, Thor Heyerdahl, with their Tiki Tumble slot machine that they released in February 2018. With five reels and 20 paylines, the slot offers up beautiful and colorful statues of various Tiki gods, all of whom can reward you with big wins.
That being said, it’s not easy pleasing the gods and with high volatility and an RTP of 96.49%, you need a bit of patience if you are going to leave the casino with wins that could exceed 3,300 x your wager.
Push Gaming is a fairly unknown developer for many players, but with slots such as Fat Santa, Fat Rabbit, Gems Of The Gods, the epic Viking Clash and the award winning Jammin’ Jars, they have proved time and time again that they are a developer to watch.
Tiki Tumble is not as complicated as other Push Gaming slots and although it has high volatility, there should be nothing stopping even less experienced players enjoying the slot.
Tiki Tumble does not have many special features and the few that are on offer are not that active due to the high volatility of the machine, but with a bit of patience you can look forward to landing a wild symbol on one of the top three lines. Do that and Nudging wild features will start.
For each following spin, the wild symbol will move one notch down until it disappears off the reels. This is a fun feature that can ensure you huge rewards as it can be active on multiple wheels at once and can cover entire wheels with wilds.
In addition to the Nudging wild, the wild symbol can replace all other symbols except the scatter symbol, which comes in the form of a golden war mask. If you land three or more scatters, you win free spins with a multiplier. Free spins start with reels two and four covered in wilds and with the possibility of landing new wilds, you can in theory keep the free spins going forever!
The multiplier that follows free spins, starts at x 1, 2, or 3 depending on how many scatter symbols you land in the main game. For each new Nudging wilds you land, the multiplier increases. With very high volatility it can take some time between landing three scatters, but when you do, you are guaranteed significant wins if you play with slightly higher stakes.
Push Gaming is a fairly young developer and so far they have launched a few slots that offer excellent gaming experiences, but they have also developed some real bad ones that should have been removed from the history books immediately.
We do however love the fact that they dare to try new things and we don’t expect every single slot to be a masterpiece, but we have to expect a little more from Tiki Tumble. Set against a backdrop of a nicely designed mountain landscape with clouds, palm trees and some Tiki statues, the five wheels are framed with bamboo poles and vines. Graphically, there’s not much we can criticize Push Gaming for, except that the background is a bit pale in color and the fact that some of the symbols have details that’s hard to make out.
The soundtrack is also a problem. In the background, you hear jungle drums and songs that you associate with the story Push is trying to convey, but the volume is so low that you have to turn up the volume on your PC or mobile and when you then land a win, it’s an utter assault on the ear drums.
Tiki Tumble is a good slot, but it could have been a lot better if Push Gaming had just added a bit more finesse, as they did with Jammin’ Jars and Viking Clash.
