Play’n Go has released a new online slot game, Rotiki.
Rotiki is a new addition which comes with a Pacific Island, Hawaiian theme. With all sorts of glyphs and totem symbols. Including wild symbols.
The game uses 6 reels that are each 8 symbols high. Winning combinations consist of 5 or more of the same symbols that are horizontally and/or vertically connected.
Rotiki comes with a much lower maximum payout than most of these types of games, only 1.000 times your bet.
When you get one or more winning combinations you will trigger 3 respins.
All winning symbols are held and all other symbols spin. Any symbols that increase the cluster will also be held.
If you manage to fill a row, you will get 3 more respins.
When the respins end, any wild symbols appearing in the winning clusters will also spin. This will reveal a normal wild symbol or a Hanumi or Whakarei symbol.
Hanumi will merge all winning clusters together and change them into the highest paying one. Whakerei will change all symbols in the cluster into a random mask symbol, which are the higher paying symbols.
After this you are paid for your winning cluster(s).
If you manage to fill the entire grid with winning clusters you will trigger the Treasure Room bonus.
You will get a certain number of picks on a grid full of blocks. These will reveal a blank spot, a x1 multiplier, +5 extra picks, or a special symbol worth x10 multiplier.
You want to collect as many multipliers as possible or the x10 multiplier symbol. The bonus ends when you are out of picks or when you reach x10.
After this the total win of all clusters is multiplied by the total multiplier collected.
I think Play’n Go is one the best providers when it comes to these grid slot games. But somehow I’m not that enthusiastic about Rotiki.
I like the theme and also like the respins with the added bonus wilds. But somehow it gets a bit boring pretty fast. Because the only real fun thing is the treasure room bonus. And this does not trigger that often.
And when it does trigger, the game only comes with a maximum payout of 1.000 times bet, so it’s still not that existing.
I’m sure a lot of players will enjoy this game and will also like the theme. For me it’s a bit too basic to really enjoy for a long time.
