Tiki Torch Slot Machine Now Online


Aristocrat’s Tiki Torch slot machine will probably be well known to a lot of you and it’s just been ported into an online version (November 29th, 2012). It’s one of my favourite Aristocrat slots so I’m happy to see it made available for some online players.

The video (borrowed from the Tiki Torch review at Slotjunkies.net) has a nice free spin feature win in it with Big Win off a £2 bet. You’ll see that the online version of Tiki Torch seems identical to the version you see in local casinos and even has all the quirks of Aristocrat slots like the clicky reels, a bell when you hit the feature and the sounds that they have stuck with down the years that define the Aristocrat brand.

This is about the 20th slot that Aristocrat have brought online now I’d guess (Slotjunkies keeps up to date with all the new Aristocrat games and you can see the full list here). Just prior to this release, they seem to have been focusing on the 243-payline games (Reel Power) like 5 Dragons and Pompeii which aren’t so much my thing.

The only real negative thing about Tiki Torch is that the feature is trigerred by getting scatter symbols on (at least) the first three reels. I personally like the features where you need 3 or more scatters anywhere in view but Tiki Torch’s unique feature with extra wilds makes upf or that. In fact, it’s what makes this game tik (sic).

So you get the feature and are awarded 8 spins with no multiplier. Great. Sounds exciting. Ah…but what hapens is that the high pay “picture” symbols all turn into extra wilds! That pretty much means you win on every spin and – like in the video – you’d be a bit unlucky not to get a big win in there somewhere.

So I’ve rambled enough. If you want to play it online it will depend where you live as some countries (the USA and Australia being the main ones) are blocked from Aristocrat games due to a grey legal landscape in those areas, however many players around the world will be OK.

As I write this review, Tiki Torch is exclusive to MoneyGaming. Not a massively well-known brand I know but, for the record, I’ve played there myself for a year or more now and they are safe and pretty reputable as their excusive deal with Aristocrat kind of intimates, although cashouts can take 3 days to process. But they do arrive… that’s the main thing! They also have other Aristocrat games and IGT slots too. Click here to play Tiki Torch at MoneyGaming.
