Tahiti Gold is the follow-up to the epic Ecuador Gold slot, and it does the almost impossible thing: to make a fabulous slot even better

Not only Megaways slots can help players get huge payouts; Ecuador Gold has already proven that, with its ever-increasing number of ways to win, free spins and mega symbols.

Elk Studios goes a step further with Tahiti Gold in every way: the game looks even better, has more boosters, and you can win more cash (up to $€500,000).

The variance is high, and the payout rate of 96.1% is excellent. You can win big on this video slot, and even if you can’t, you won’t get bored for a second.

Elk Studios succeeds to surprise us time and time again with new productions, which have been made to perfection. They don’t release that many slots, but the quality is nearly always very high if they do.

How does the Tahiti Gold slot work?

Tahiti Gold is a win-all-ways slot machine, which increases the number of ways to win after each winning spin. You start with 4,096 ways to win (a playing field of 5 reels with 4 rows of symbols).

Winning combinations disappear to make room for new ones. After that, the reels will be expanded vertically to create more ways-to-win. The maximum number of ways to win is 262,144. This can lead to desirable payouts, especially if you know there are mega symbols, sticky wilds and regular wilds in the game as well.

But more on that later.

The minimum bet is $€0.10 per spin, and the maximum bet is $€100 per turn.

Symbols and payouts

We have just mentioned it: there are regular symbols and mega symbols. The latter is made up of square blocks of a maximum of 4 x 4 symbols. When they appear on the reels, they crush all the underlying symbols—a bit like the Netent slot Asgardian Stones.

The hero of the game, named Kane, is the highest paying symbol: a 6-of-a-kind of this tough explorer will get you 3.5 x the total bet. That may not seem like a lot, but in practice, it’s not too bad.

Double symbols, mega symbols, wilds: they all provide extra multipliers.

The symbols all look gorgeous and fit in perfectly with the adventurer’s theme.

Special symbols

There are several special symbols in the game, which unlock some pretty darn nifty extra features.

Wild symbols

These wilds replace all symbols except the scatters.

Wild Forge

This is a special type of wild and a potent one at that. All empty positions created by this wild are filled with wild symbols. As long as you spin winning combinations, the wilds remain on the reels.

Eye of Tiki

Tiki’s eye can help you out of awkward positions. Spin 2 or more of these symbols, and as soon as a spin has been unsuccessful, the symbols become active. Lines are drawn between the eyes, and all the symbols inside the created object are destroyed.

The Eye of Tiki can help you in two ways:

  • You’ll get an extra chance once you’ve ended up dead.
  • He can destroy symbols under a Wild Forge to give you extra wilds.

Free spins bonus: sticky wilds and “Safety Levels.”

3 or more flame-spitting volcanoes will get you the free spins bonus:

  • 3 scatters: 10 free spins
  • 4 scatters: 15 free spins
  • 5 scatters: 20 free spins
  • 6 scatters: 30 free spins

During the free spins, there are two ways to help you take big payouts:

– All wilds are sticky.

– Once the “Safety Level” has been reached, this guarantees a minimum number of ways to win during the bonus.

The sticky wilds, possibly in combination with some Wild Forge symbols, can cause you to get a big payout time and time again during the free spins.

It is possible to retrigger free spins indefinitely.

Our verdict on the Tahiti Gold slot

Ecuador Gold was already one of Elk Studios’ best slots, but it has to step aside for Tahiti Gold.

If there is such a thing as the perfect slot, Tahiti Gold is very close.

It looks fantastic, it is full of fun mini-features, and you can win a lot of money.

We think this may be one of the best new video slots of 2019.

4.7 out of 5 stars.
