Exotic Masks and Fiery Volcanoes Feature in this Lightning Link Pokie
Many pokies have Hawaiian island themes. You’ll find the Tiki masks on Aristocrat’s Tiki Fire poker machine have amazing animations. When you win with these wild symbols, they turn to face you – full of fire!
Tiki Fire is part of the Lightning Link and Cash family of games. You’ll find the jackpots and key features shared between all the titles in this popular range.
With stunning graphics and plenty of big win potential, there are lots of great reasons to check out this pokie.
You can win short (6 spins) though sweet bonus game on the Tiki Fire poker machine. Get 3 or more of the active volcano scatters anywhere on the reels and you trigger this feature.
Doubled wilds alone might not sound too enticing. When these work together, you can trigger some huge line hits.
For example, if you get 3 wilds on a win line – this win is multiplied by 8 (2x2x2). Hit the big symbols at the right time and you’ll hear that characteristic circus music that Aristocrat has used for years for big wins. The wilds are stacked, so it is possible to trigger multiple wins from the same spin.
You can add 3 free spins to your current total with 3+ scatters. It is also possible to trigger the Hold and Spin bonus from the free spins.
If you have played any of the Lightning Link games, you’ll be familiar with the Hold N Spin bonus. This is the same across all this group of pokies – though features different animations for the cash prizes each time.
Here there are glowing fiery balls with either cash amounts or jackpot prizes on the reels. You need 6 in view to trigger the feature. At that point, you have already won the amounts on all 6 balls, though it gets better from here.
You now have 3 free spins to add to the number of awards. If you are lucky, special balls with the 3 smaller jackpots will appear – you can win each progressive prize more than once. Each time you hit an extra award, the number of free spins resets to 3.
Only 3 of the 4 jackpots appear as awards in those glowing balls. The biggest jackpot (called the ‘grand’) is yours if you manage to fill all 15 spots on the reels.
Whether you can choose the Lightning Link (shared jackpot) or Lightning Cash (individual jackpots) versions of Tiki Fire depends on your state. Here is where you will find each type:
Link: New South Whales, Australian Capital Territory, Queensland, Victoria.
Cash:New South Whales, Australian Capital Territory, Queensland, Victoria, Southern Australia, Northern Territory, New Zealand.
In common with the other games in this range, you can switch between 25 and 50 win-lines. You can choose to play 1c through 10c denominations – and even add a bet multiplier.
Big winning symbols include classic Hawaiian themes. There is a native lady, exotic butterfly, flower and a parrot. No prizes for guessing the filler symbols – these are the classic Aristocrat playing cards.
Many Hawaiian pokies have flowers and hula dancers – the Tiki Fire pokie takes a darker (though beautifully produced) tone. The stand outs are the tiki mask and the volcano. The mask is carved and has flames inside, when you will with it you will see an animation where it turns slowly to look right at you. The volcano springs to life when involved in a win, spewing lava and fire.
No Lightning Link pokie would be complete without the forks of lightning collecting up your wins at the end of each feature.
Another classic design for the Lightning Link and Cash range of pokies. This game is dark, rich and beautiful – at the same time! Those multiplier wilds in the free spins games can lead to some huge wild hits. It is possible to get several reels of these 2x multipliers on every spin.
Hold N Spin is a tried and trusted feature. Here you can win jackpots, as well as cash awards. Fill all 15 spots for the grand jackpot, and you could be on the next plane to Hawaii.
