Thunderkick has proven time and time again that they have what it takes to build an online slot machine that takes the conventional slot format and turns it on its head – but do they have what’s needed to come up with a simple, classic game? Well, if you load up the reels of Toki Time you’ll see a very familiar sight. This title uses a standard slot set up with a very basic respin bonus that is instantly accessible and playable confirming that these guys absolutely know what they’re doing when it comes to all kinds of slot games.
The graphics in Toki Time are like something out of a 1990s arcade game. The visual theme here is cuteness in over-drive with a ton of smiley faces, clouds, rainbows and surreal creatures making up the symbols on the reels. The background is equally saccharine and strange with flowers dancing in time with this game’s music and a bottom end of the game grid that looks like it’s modelled on the surface of the moon. All of these elements fit together nicely to create a strong and cohesive playing experience that is unquestionably in line with the Thunderkick brand.
Musically Toki Time is one of those games where you turn the volume up rather that down. The sound effects are full of lovely little noises with a booming little base-line that’s nothing short of addictive. It’s rare that you find a slot game with effects that are this good – so when you do you’re guaranteed a smile. The reel noises and sonic hits from the reels are in line with the theme and every aspect of this machine works excellently as a greater part of the whole. Presentation wise this slot is every bit as good as games like Jurassic Park and Gonzo’s Quest – it just offers a slightly different take on the standard.
The main game in Toki Time is very simple. You’ve got a standard casino slot arrangement of five reels with three positions on each reel. Spread across this grid is eleven pay-lines on which you can make your bets, with the game paying out for two way combinations that read both left to right and right to left. This means that there’s double bubble when it comes down to making money from your standard spins.
At any time during a standard spin either the second or fourth reel can become completely wild. This uses a strange animation where a llama like creature pops its head out of one of the holes at the base of the grid before bouncing onto the board. Hit a win that uses the extended wild and you’ll be paid out a standard prize before the game goes into overdrive and respins the reels. If you hit another win, you’ll get a further respin – in fact the reels will keep spinning until you fail to hit a winner. As an extra bonus you can throw another wild reel into the mix, which can help you build a winning streak that pumps out the biggest prizes on offer from this slot.
Slot Professor Says
This is another hit slot from the mighty Thunderkick. These guys have definitely impressed me with their high production value titles. Whilst games like Fruit Warp and Sunny Scoops are a little over imaginative with their mechanisms – great for the new school gamblers out there - Toki Time actually represents a strange return to the old tradition of simple slots that lack complex features, free spin rounds and progressive jackpots, but have it where it counts in the game-play and pay-table.
I have to say that I find this game incredibly engaging. When you stop in the single wild reel everything about this title moves up a notch with the cool music getting faster and the base-game takes on some new animations – it’s an addictive and compelling experience. This is a slot machine that manages to nicely use its interface to keep you glued to the spins.
As a final point do I have any playing tips for Toki Time? I would very much like to point out that the loss of the bonus game means that you don’t have to worry too much about entry into a non-existent feature. Any spin on this slot machine can trigger the wild reel respin mechanism, which gives you the power to go on an endless streak where the wins pour off the reels. This is one of those games where you can hit it big at any time, at any moment, so if you want to risk it all then simply go for it, or play small for the long haul.
