Tip Top Totems slot review
Tip Top Totems slot by Playtech has a distinctly Aztec appearance and music to match when we open the game up, in case you expected a more North American kind of theme. You can see immediately how the game works with the jungle background having a totem at the right of the grid displaying progressive cash prizes and free spins quantities. The symbols are similar to that of Red Tiger's Totem Lightning or 1x2 Gaming's Aztec Secrets and I certainly hope it's a more fulfilling slot than Play'n Go's dreary Aztec Warrior Princess was. Anyway, will these totems keep our bankroll in tip-top shape here?
On The Reels...
Our coulourful grid here is 5 reels of 4 rows each which is unusual as we only get 20 lines, but we do get stacked symbols on all including the Wild Jewel which is the highest 5-of-a-kind pay at 50x bet, Red Mask 15x, Green 10x, Pink 7.5x, Blue 6x, Purple 5x, Yellow 4x with five card values of 3 down to 1x for a full line. Scatters appear on all reels but are only there for pays and do not trigger anything. As it appeared when I opened it, there's no in-play modifiers here so on to the main event!
It's all down to that Totem we see at the right and the scale of wins and spins that appears on it. It's clearly marked and we need 5 consecutive winning combinations to trigger 5 free games, 6 for 10. A Tip award of 40x bet is given for 7, 15 free spins for 8 then the Top award of 100x bet for 9 consecutive wins. 10 gives us 20 free spins and finally for 11 you'll be awarded with the Totem award of 500x bet. Each of these spins is taken from your credit, there's no respins for the same spin in play by the way. You only get the highest prize you reach, not those before it. For the 5 or 10 free spins you get a 2x multiplier and one or two randomly-placed Wilds respectively, for the 15 spins 3x and 3 random Wilds and for the 20 4x and 4 random Wilds per spin. No retriggers can occur.
Colourful fun is probably the most apt description for Tip Top Totems slot and I must admit I am slightly confused by the 500x top totem prize as theoretically you could exceed this in the free games, especially the 20 spins with 4x. The sound are a bit silly after a while but it isn't hard to get the 5-plus wins required for a totem prize and the free games can pay well too. You get a good 96.56% RTP as well which partly explains why your bankroll seems to last a while, as does the obvious low volatility. You'll get some game time here climbing this totem, that's for sure...Review by Gamingslots
