Well and truly putting the ‘big’ in Big Kahuna, online slot developer Microgaming’s jungle-themed slot has been popular with enthusiasts for a while due to its big betting potential.
The game is a 5-reel, 9-payline slot with a 45-coin max. bet. And if the minimum bet of $0.05 doesn’t exactly float your boat, the max bet of $90 surely will. In fact, with the slot’s simplicity, attractive graphics, fun atmosphere and two bonus games, Microgaming have seen fit to launch a few spin-offs. Big Kahuna Snakes andLadders is one particularly popular addition to the franchise.
A journey into the tropics is the main gist of Big Kahuna: jungle sound effects, monkeys, volcanoes – you know you’re in for a wild time here. What’s also nice is the cartoony fruit icons on show, transporting you back to the golden age of slots. You want tasty watermelons, raspberries, oranges and pineapples? You got it.
As well as the familiar Wilds and Scatters, Big Kahuna really wins thanks to its Bonus features. Get 3, 4 or 5 Volcano symbols in a row on one of the paylines and you’ll be whisked off to the Volcano Bonus game. Here you must select tribal masks which reveal various bonus amounts until you pick the final ‘Collect’ symbol. The total amount gathered until hitting ‘Collect’ acts as your booty haul. The other Bonus game is, rather confusingly, called the Pick a Mask Bonus Game.
As with the Volcano game, it’s activated when 3, 4 or 5 Mask symbols appear in a row on a payline. This time you select a fruit symbol which drops to reveal a bonus.
The fun theme, old-school fruit icons and a massive 8,000-coin jackpot means Big Kahuna should be near the top of your slots list. If you’re feeling in the mood for similar mayhem, you might want to consider Microgaming’s other jungle-related slot, the truly bizarre Mad Mad Monkey, or the sleek 3D graphics of BetSoft’s mesmerizing Rook’s Revenge, but for now, revel in the big bonuses of Big Kahuna.
