The wombat says: Welcome to the jungle Wombats! Yes, it’s another exotic island-themed slot, but this time from Microgaming. This is one of those classic games like the Cashanova slot, Tomb Raider, the Gold Factory slot and Mermaids Millions.
Fire up the game and the tropical sounds will immediately greet you – and as always there’s an ominous-looking volcano towering over the reels to erupt with cash wins when you are least expecting it. Dive into the lush rainforest and see if you can’t grab a slice of the tropical yourselves. Kahuna, in Hawaiian (that’s a tough one to spell, and that’s coming from someone who’s spent a fair amount of time in Maribyrnong!), means priest, sorcerer, magician or wizard which make me think of the Moon Temple slot.
Anyway, you’ll be seeing a few of these dudes in the game.
The Big Kahuna slot is 5-reel, 9-pay line game that has become a bit of a player’s favourite. Wild monkeys and wise witch doctors are your symbols along with other Hawaiian-themed icons including slithery lizards, lava-filled volcanos, and some juicy exotic fruits that include; pineapples, oranges, kiwis, lychees, watermelons, and errr, the most tropical of them all, raspberries…
The Big Kahuna logo is your Wild symbol and will substitute fill for any other symbol (except the Scatter) to complete your winning combos. Talking of which, the cheeky-looking monkey is your Scatter in this game, and 2x or more of this little ape will dish you out some decent wins. 5x monkey Scatters will add a maximum of 200 coins to your coffers, plus any wins that include Scatters are added to the payline win and multiplied by the number of credits you bet. Thanks Big Kahuna!
Big Kahuna Bonuses
Big Kahuna has 2 bonus games on offer – we like this a lot. Hurrah!
Land 3x or more of the Golden Masks on one of the 9 paylines, and you’ll trigger off the Mask Bonus round. Next, you’ll be taken to a 2nd screen where you’ll find 10 gruesome masks are hanging up. Pick a mask and a hidden prize will be revealed underneath. If you pick the right mask, you’ll become the Big Kahuna and get to keep on picking prizes, choose the wrong one, you get sent back to the base game and with a big fat zero…
The amount up for grabs in the Mask Bonus depends on the number of mask symbols that triggered it. 3x will pay up to 1,650 coins, 4x mask symbols up to 2,900 coins and 5x mask symbols could give a whopping to 4,375 coins!
The 2nd bonus feature in Big Kahuna is the Volcano Bonus round. This game is set off by landing 3x or more Volcanoes on any payline. Choose a juicy piece of fruit to be offered to the Volcano Gods as a gift. Your fruit of choice is then dropped into the red-hot volcano while you’re awarded a red-hot bonus cash prize. Just like in the mask bonus, the cash prize on offer depends on how many of Volcano Symbols you had in the base game. 3x will give you a maximum of 625 coins, 4x volcano symbols can pay up to 1,000 coins, while 5x smouldering volcanoes could give you up to 2,500 coins. Smoking!
A simple-looking game with some fun features that provide decent payouts. And the 2 bonus rounds are triggered quite often, which make a nice change. Yes, there are slots out there with better graphics and more complicated game play, but if you like a classic slot experience, then Big Kahuna is one for you. This wombat says ‘Yeahh.’
