Big Kahuna Review
Not many of us have heard about the true meaning of the Big Kahuna, but it‘s definitely something that is worth the attention. This online slot was developed by Microgaming and it‘s based upon South Pacific tribal elements, which include masks, iguanas, volcanoes, shamans but also melons, raspberries, oranges, kiwi and so on. Although the game‘s design is a little bit rusty, it is still very amusing and interesting to play. It is actually the predecessor of some newer games from the same developer and it‘s still very popular among older players.
If you don’t mind the graphics that much but you like the sounds of pacific islands, this is definitely something you should try your luck with. This online slot features 5 reels and 9 paylines, so the winnings can be formed both diagonally and horizontally. The grand prize brings you 8.000 but there are also a lot of other features that can help you along the way. Two-dimensional symbols are somewhat a part of the past, so don’t get too disappointed – this game was a big hit couple of years ago. If you put maximum bets at the very beginning, you’ll only be able to place 45 chips per spin which can bring a lot of cash if the luck is on your side. The highest paying symbols are Big Kahuna Wild and Grinning Monkey scatter. The bonus symbols are the volcano and the tribal mask. All in all, nicely drawn.
If you‘re lucky enough to catch the Volcano Bonus, since it‘s pretty short, you‘ll be taken to a new screen – of course, you have to land 3, 4 or 5 volcano symbols on the reels first. The creators of the game have come up with a funny feature here – in order to get all the prizes, you must sacrifice pieces of fruit whose worth brings different prize amounts. There is also another bonus which includes the Tiki mask and to trigger it you need to land three, four or five of them on an active payline. The mini-game starts in which you have to choose one out of ten masks in order to collect the prize behind it.
This average looking online slot maybe needs a re-design, but it’s still very popular as it offers interesting bonus features, cool soundtrack and a unique story. Big Kahuna has stood the test of time, so it’s still pretty much inviting for anyone who needs a change. Since it’s a predecessor, you should definitely try it and then slowly follow the storyline as you discover new ways of collecting prizes and hitting the big jackpot.
