Iron Dog Studio is not averse to a slot set in a tropical paradise. The studio’s Neon Jungle slot is testament to that. While that slot focussed on the animalistic nightlife of a jungle city, Iron Dog’s Wai-Kiki Slot takes a much more relaxed approach to its slots play, whisking us to a tropical paradise where we can enjoy its five reels and 25 paylines at our leisure. True to form, though, there is an aspect of partying involved in the game’s Free Spins bonus feature. After all, no holiday would be complete without one.
With the shores of a tropical beach at our fingertips it’s likely that we will be on this lush tropical beach for a good while. Whether we play this slot on web or mobile, the immersive nature of the gameplay is all-encompassing. Our game symbols float above the background, doing away with reels in favour of letting us soak in the atmosphere. Aside from the Jacks through Aces that make up our lower-paying game symbols, all of our symbols here are Hawaiian through and through. And we’re not talking ham and pineapple pizza. A Surfboard and Shades, Cocktail, Turtle, Fish Hook and Ukulele take us up through the high-paying echelons and accompany the lilting ukulele soundtrack to deliver nothing but the purest Hawaiian action. Our game symbols animate in fun fashion, while the Wild Plumeria flower substitutes for all symbols except Luau Free Spin Scatters.
Any online slot’s Free Spins feature is cause for party time, so it is fitting that Iron Dog treats us to a Luau night time party when we launch Wai-Kiki’s Free Spins feature. To trigger the bonus round we need to land a Luau Free Spin Scatter on reel 3 in the centre position and a Ukulele symbol either side. For some reason best known to itself, Iron Dog opts to call them Hukuleles in the pay table. But that’s by the by. Now, for 21 free spins, our Wild Plumerias not only substitute for game symbols to complete winning combos but they spread out from their landing position to cover up to five other symbols for additional wins. Rather than hit up drinks at this Luau, our Cocktail symbols are replaced by Tokens. We collect these as we go, totting them up to award us a coin payout at the end of the Free Spins feature.
But Iron Dog isn’t content with only offering us a single bonus game. Oh no. The studio gives us a shot at fish hooking – hawaiian style – with the Shark Fishing Bonus. This hooks us a coin win relevant to our stake when we land a Turtle symbol in the centre space on reel 3 with a Fish Hook symbol on either side.
The Hawaiian lady adorned in full Lei regalia that says “Aloha” to us during the Shark Fishing Bonus is a flourish among many for Iron Dog’s Wai-Kiki online slot. With plentiful wins to aim for and a relaxing setting in which to do it, this is one slot that hits the holiday nail on the head with effortless aplomb. Say “Aloha” to the Wai-Kiki slot? You’d better believe we will.
