Spin yourself into sunnier climes with Tahiti Feeling, a new online slot machine by Merkur that celebrates the exotic wonders of the Southern Pacific Ocean. The 5-reel video slot has 20 paylines and some low variance gameplay for winning spins in abundance.
And even though prizes are paid out at a relatively frequent rate, punters can win up to 500x the value of their total bets, which is a very handsome jackpot indeed. Helping players to rack up the wins are a couple of bonus gameplay features, including wild wins and free spins with multipliers.
The island of Tahiti is paradise on Earth: luscious verdant green landscapes, pristine beaches (some of which have black sand!) and crystal clear water from the South Pacific Ocean. There really is no other place like it on Earth.
Players can catch that Tahiti Feeling with this video slot from Merkur, offering a snapshot view of the tropical island with reel symbols that depict seashells, tiki men carvings, thatched huts over a lagoon, postcard worthy sunsets and moonlit seascapes. The reels themselves are presented over a background scene of white sand and swaying palm tree leaves while birds of paradise fly over the lapping waves. Perfect for some chilled out spins.
Players of Tahiti Feeling shouldn't get too relaxed because this low volatility slot machine is sure to keep them on the edge of their seats. That is because the wins tend to come at a relatively frequent rate, offering small prizes whenever three matching icons appear on any active payline. The game can be played with all 20 paylines with options to play with just 1, 5, 10 or 15 paylines as well.
With all paylines triggered, the game's maximum bet is 40 credits while the lowest possible wager with all paylines in play is 0.20. As such, there is quite a decent amount of scope for both casual punters and high rolling slot machine players.
Despite being a low variance slot machine, this game still gives punters the chance to rack up some very big wins. In fact, the top jackpot in the base game of Tahiti Feeling is a whopping 500x total bet multiplier which is awarded whenever five bikini babe scatter symbols appear in any position on the reels. After that, players will be able to rack up some decent line bet multiplier prizes with five “Tahiti Feeling” symbols on a payline offering a 5,000x line bet prize while five matching huts or sunset icons will pay 750x.
Helping players get that Tahiti Feeling are a couple of bonus gameplay features, both of which are fairly standard as far as online video slots go but they could be the difference between some average spins and some huge wins. First of all, the game's logo symbol acts as a wild icon, meaning that it will substitute every normal symbol to potentially complete wins on active paylines.
After that, punters can hope to trigger a round of 15 free spins by finding three or more bikini babe scatters. This free game feature is played with a 2x multiplier applied to every win with a 1x multiplier added to the equation whenever the free spins are re-triggered. And not only will players be able to claim some large multiplier wins without having to place a penny as a wager, but they will also be able to complete winning combinations in all directions – from left to right, from right to left and even in the middle of the reels.
It has to be said that this video slot has some very attractive prize propositions, especially for a low variance slot machine. Nevertheless, players will still come across from underwhelming wins whenever three low value icons match on the paylines. If this were to happen, then players can boost the overall prize by wagering the win in one of two gamble games.
The first of these gamble features is a simple 50/50 game in which punters have to guess the colour of a playing card to double the win from the qualifying spin. The other game is a little bit more complicated, presenting a scale of different prizes which players can climb or descend. The win limit for both gamble games is 140.00 credits.
Tahiti Feeling is a warm and welcoming slot machine that promises to take players far away to a paradise island of winning potential. And what winning potential this game has with its 500x total bet jackpot and special round of free spins with bonus multipliers. Who knows, if you spin this slot machine right then you might be able to afford your own trip to Tahiti!
