Pragmatic Refreshes Tumbling Reels with Tropical Tiki

Leading iGaming and sports betting content provider Pragmatic Play has added another hit slot to its reputable collection of over 200 games. Tropical Tiki joins fresh game releases like Bomb Bonanza, Queen of Gods, and Cosmic Cash, while aiming to reach the success of award-winning titles like Gates of Olympus and Wolf Gold from the same provider. 

Players are invited to start their vacation in fascinating Polynesia, meet the aborigines and jump on a tropical adventure where a mischievous moai will lead the way to huge wins.

Themes, Music & Symbols – Step into the Tropical Forest  

The new slot places the cool tropical theme at the center, with a tropical forest used as a backdrop on the grid surrounded by a frame made of wood. Players get to admire the forest underneath the hot sun while playing the base game. While using the bonus feature, players’ path is signaled with the help of bonfires.

The base game’s action is accompanied by tribal music performed on specific aborigen instruments including a marimba and drums. The bonus game has a special soundtrack that also features a guitar. Both soundtracks are equally engaging and rhythmic, helping players keep their focus. 

Tropical Tiki’s icons perfectly match the theme, with standard poker symbols as low-paying symbols designed to perfectly match the design. Dragon fruit, coconut, and cherimoya are mid-range symbols. The game also uses red, blue, and green wooden faces as high-paying symbols. A Gold Face also represents a scatter symbol. Once this symbol lands a minimum of four scatters, their bets get multiplied by 5. The same four scatters also engage eight free spins. Landing a higher number of scatters brings players extra multipliers, with the largest multiplier capped at 35x for ten scatter symbols. The grid keeps the initial six reels during the free spins round while expanding the number of rows to five with each new spin.

Tumbling Game Mechanic

Coming across a matching combo does not offer players an instant payout. Instead, it triggers the reel-tumbling events. For example, a winning combo made of three symbols makes the rest of the symbols vanish from the grid, causing fresh symbols to tumble down. Provided extra matching symbols land near the winning combo, they create a cluster. Players receive their payouts once there are no other matching icons available to fall on the grid.

Pragmatic Play’s chief business development officer Yossi Barzely described the new slot as one with “a genuinely creative and unique concept” that is mixed with a “fun, island vacation-style theme.” The company that creates at least six new slots a month offers its content in 33 languages and all currencies. Pragmatic Play also specializes in bingo, live casino, virtual sports, and other verticals using its One Single application programming interface. Recently, the provider launched two new baccarat games.
