Tiki Torch POKIE
The pokie is inspired by the Maori mythology where Tiki was the first man created by gods and this is also the name for human-sized statues carved of wood or stone. If you seek for easy games with few features, you are going to appreciate the pokie as it has only a wild, scatter and free spins. Bonus spins have a twist that will make your winnings increase manifold – every time a high symbol lands, it morphs into a wild symbol, thus enhancing the likelihood that a valuable combo will be formed. This beautiful pokie offers a $7500 jackpot if five fire-breathing tikis come on a payline.

This well-balanced pokie is played over 5 reels and 20 adjustable paylines. The gaming action is unsophisticated and fairly basic – all winning combos pay left to right and special features are available in small amounts. On the reels you will find typical playing card values from 8 to A. They are encountered in virtually every pokie from Aristocrat and pay lower than themed pictures. In this pokie, 8–A award x2 to x250 for five of a kind. Combos consisting of those symbols will be frequent visitors to the reels and bring small wins that would rack up your bankroll. A canoe, hut and knife are themed icons that award x500, x500 and x1000 respectively, for five of a kind.
As most Aristocrat pokies, Tiki Torch has a single option for changing a bet size, i.e. a bet per line. This parameter has several values ranging between $0.01 and $3. The number of lines covered with a bet is changeable in increments of 5 so you can select to bet on 5, 10, 15 or 20 paylines. As a general rule, players are recommended to have all lines enabled but you can try to reduce their number for the sake of experiment. Therefore, the minimum and maximum bets in Tiki Torch vary between $0.2 and $60 per spin.
The Tiki statue is a wild and one of the most powerful symbols. It can extend a winning combination if, for example, you have only two matching symbols on a payline, or it can replace any non-participating symbol and fill the gap between two or more matching images. Anyway, the wild will come handy if it lands at the right time and place. Moreover, wilds create combos as if they were regular pics. Hitting two to five wilds on a payline will bring you x10 to x2500 ($7500 at max).
Scatter and free spins
A pearl is a scatter symbol. Well, in the strict sense of the word, it is not a scatter because it pays out and triggers a bonus event when landing on a payline left to right, not being scattered across the grid. Anyway, Aristocrat calls this symbol a scatter in the paytable. Three or more pearls pay x2, x12 and x50 a total bet which translates into the second largest jackpot of $3000. When three scatters appear, 8 free spins begin automatically. During free spins, all high symbols (Hut, Canoe and Knife) that stop on the reels will transform into wilds, so card symbols are very likely to create numerous winning combinations by dint of wilds.
Tiki Torch is a medium-variance pokie that pays both small and big wins quite often. It has a 2500-coin jackpot, free spins and a wild symbol that turns out especially helpful during free spins.
