Tiki Tiki Hold 'n' Win: Slot Overview

Anyone out there daydreaming of visiting a far-off distant land to soak up the sun and kick back in the sand with a cool beverage while taking a punt? If so, then stir up a piña colada or grab a tropical juice of choice and join us as we take a trip to the sunny shores of Stakelogic's online slot Tiki Tiki Hold 'n' Win, a cluster paying grid slot, with free spins, wheels, and as you might be expecting from the title, a hold 'n win feature.

Tiki Tiki Hold 'n' Win is also a slot which features feisty, charismatic birds that brought to mind ELK Studios' Pirots and Pirots 2 slots. However, the birds in Tiki Tiki Hold 'n' Win are mostly pay symbols, so they don't wander around the joint eating symbols, bopping at discos or anything like that. In other words, Tiki Tiki Hold 'n' Win isn't as avant-garde as its Pirots pals, but it is a slot that made a very amiable first impression. The artwork is exceptionally pleasing to the eye, very tastefully laid out, and expertly coloured, creating the sort of dream holiday destination Instagram influencers would be all over like a rash.

The active gaming area in Tiki Tiki Hold 'n' Win is a 5-reel, 4-row cluster paying grid, awarding regular wins when 4 or more identical symbols are connected to each other in horizontal or vertical directions. Behind the scenes, mixing the drinks in the background stirs a medium-high volatile math model, pushing out a default RTP value of 96%. As far as tackling the game goes, players can choose a wager of 20 c to $/€50, and bonus buys are an option as well.

Cheerfully patterned J to A card ranks are the lower value symbols, while the higher value ones are 4 avian characters. Landing clusters made up of 4 matching symbols is worth 0.1 to 1 times the bet, going up to 10 to 200 times the bet for hitting a 15+ cluster win. Winning clusters trigger a hold and respin feature, which holds winning symbols and respins non-winning positions until the win can no longer be improved. Multipliers also appear on any new winning symbols when this happens, starting at x2 and going up to x17 max. Respins end when no winning symbols land or all positions are winning. Wilds substitute for all paying symbols and have the same values as the highest-paying bird when making an all-wild win

Tiki Tiki Hold 'n' Win: Slot Features

Moving on to the remaining features, we come across a Coin symbol collection element, Fortune Wheels, free spins, a Hold 'N' Win Bonus Game, and bonus buys.

Scatter Symbols

Scatter symbols appear on all reels. Hitting 3 of them triggers the Fortune Wheel while 4 scatters trigger the Mega Fortune Wheel, and having 5 scatters in view triggers the Epic Fortune Wheel.

Coin and Treasure Chest Symbols

Coin symbols are present on all reels, showing values of 1x to 50x the bet. Landing 5 Coin symbols triggers the Hold 'N' Win Bonus Game, which is possible from the base game or from free spins. The Treasure Chest symbol appears on rightmost reel. When it lands, it pays the value of all Coin symbols in view on that spin.

Fortune Wheel

Spinning the Fortune Wheel awards free spins or the Hold 'N' Win Bonus Game. The Mega Fortune and Epic Fortune Wheel have better chances of triggering the Hold 'N' Win Bonus Game or free spins with higher values.

Free Spins

Free spins can only be won through the Fortune Wheel, where it is possible to attain 8 to 15 free spins. Free spins can be retriggered by landing 3 or more scatter symbols, thereby activating the Fortune Wheel. No special new rules were listed in the game info section for the free spins feature.

Hold 'N' Win Bonus Game

The Hold 'N' Win Bonus Game starts with 3 respins, and only Coin symbols may land. Every time a Coin symbol lands, the number of respins is reset to 3. When 4 or more Coin symbols connect to form a cluster they merge into a Treasure Chest symbol, displaying the accumulated value of the cluster of Coins which created it. If 4 or more Treasure Chest symbols form a cluster, they merge into a Golden Tiki Idle symbol. This symbol displays the accumulated value of the cluster of Treasure Chest symbols which created it.

Buy Bonus

Via the buy bonus, players can get the Fortune Wheel for 100x the bet, the Mega Fortune Wheel for 200x the bet, or the Epic Fortune Wheel for 300x the bet.

Tiki Tiki Hold 'n' Win: Slot Verdict

One persistent thought while reviewing Tiki Tiki Hold 'n' Win was if and/or how much inspiration Stakelogic garnered from ELK's Pirots slots. Maybe some, maybe none, hard to say, but given how 'inspired' Stakelogic has been in the past by other studios' work (see Money Track 2 for one particularly ludicrous example), it's a question that stuck in the mind as Tiki Tiki Hold 'n' Win played out. Speaking of playing out, Tiki Tiki Hold 'n' Win does not function like a Pirots slot, though. It's actually kind of closer to something like Hula Balua in some ways, which incidentally is another tropical island-style slot from ELK Studios. Perhaps Stakelogic's design team was on an ELK binge when it was making Tiki Tiki Hold 'n' Win? Perhaps not, moving on.

Whatever the case, Tiki Tiki Hold 'n' Win hasn't turned out too badly at all, quite alright, in fact, though it might help to view the game in a bubble as if free from any possible outside influences. The respins/cluster combo is not a common one and plays well in the base game and free spins, joined as well by the Coin collection feature, not to mention multipliers. One of Tiki Tiki Hold 'n' Win's twists, a relatively minor though positive one, is the way Coin symbols can cluster together to form Treasure Chest symbols, which can, in turn, cluster together to form Golden Tiki Idle symbols. It's a game that, when firing on all pistons, may cluster together to form wins of up to 10,000 times the bet.

Add all of the parts together, and you've got a neatly packaged cluster pays slot that looks excellent, plays well, and can flip from lying on a reclining beach chair mode to a flurry of feathers in a moment, making for a potentially enthralling tropical getaway slot.

Fair

Tiki Tiki Hold ‘n’ Win is a vibrantly presented slot that might seem like a relaxing beach break at times but which can actually get rather lively.
