Big Kahuna Slot

Play for real money

Big Kahuna is a colourful 9-payline video slot operating on the Microgaming software platform. There are two Bonus symbols – the Volcano and the Mask symbols. The wild card is the Big Kahuna Logo and the scatter is the Monkey symbol. Players can test the slot on this page for free, or they can play the game for real money in any of the listed Microgaming casinos.

To initiate their Hawaiian adventure, players should first decide on their wager. "Select Lines" modifies the number of enabled paylines and "Select Coins" sets the number of coins wagered. The coin value, ranging from 0.05 to 0.5, can be adjusted by pressing +/-. To start the game, players should push "Spin", and "Bet Max" to spin at the highest wager. Should players desire to play multiple times uninterrupted, they can choose “Expert” and then “Au­top­lay­”.

When 3 or more Volcano symbols emerge on the reels, the Volcano Bonus is triggered. 3 Volcano symbols can award from 25 up to 625 coins, 4 Volcanoes can win players from 50 up to 1,000 coins and 5 Volcano Bonus symbols can grant them from 100 up to 2,500 coins.

3, 4 or 5 Mask symbols emerging on an active payline lead to the Mask Bonus. There players need to choose between different masks, which reveal random bonus amounts. However, if players land on a mask that does not contain winnings, the round ends and the consolation prizes are added. 3 Masks can award up to 1,650 coins, 4 Masks up to 2,900 coins and 5 Masks up to 4,375 coins.

I've played the Big Kahuna Snakes and Ladders game and didn't find it very interesting nor rewarding. This Big Kahuna game was probably released earlier than the Snakes and Ladders game, so that should tell a lot about this game. Kahuna is an Hawaiian term for a priest, a magician, or a shaman, so this Big Kahuna must be a big one somewhere in the Hawaiian jungle. If you happen to be going there, watch out for the Big Kahuna. Right now, I'll keep watch over him over here, just in case he decides to make my wallet suddenly disappear. Hehehe.

For a very old game, I can't really comment much on its graphics and sounds, other than to say that it is acceptable but looking quite dated, although I do find the monkey's icon quite nice. Paytable wise, only the Wild symbol is doing its job, although it is still considered a dumb Wild, for not doing anything else except to substitute for the fruits symbol only. 5 of them pays a nice 8000x the line bet. All the other symbols pay from 500x the line bet down to 100x. So, is that good or bad? Quite bad!

There are 2 feature games available, namely a Volcano Bonus game and a Mask Bonus game, both having a pick-and-win mode of play, something that I don't like at all. In the Volcano Bonus game, you pick 1 fruit out of 5 or 6 fruits to win a prize. Nothing big at all to win here, only about 10x the total bet size, or thereabouts. In the Mask Bonus game, you pick a few masks out of the 10 masks, until you get a 'collect' sign which ends the picking. The prizes here are a little bigger than those in the Volcano bonus, probably up to 20x or 25x the total bet size. Still not a lot though. So where can you win big? Get 5 of those Wilds on any payline and that's about it! No win multipliers in this game, no Free Spins game either. All you get is a lot of monkey business!
What don't I like about this Big Kahuna game? Well, everything about the game sucks! The paytable sucks, the feature games suck, no free spins game sucks, some of my money got sucked too. Luckily not a lot, because this is a low variance game. Can't win much, can't lose much either, provided you know when to run! Overall, what a boring game Big Kahuna is!

Big Kahuna is a very old video slot which is run by Microgaming software and for that reason I think that players avoid this game but I wanted to give it a try. This is a 9 payline 5 reel slot with min bet 0.45 euros. The first time I played the game I just wanted to test it so I set 10 spins on autoplay on min bet. I was surprised because after these free spins I was actually 50 euros in plus. I ended up playing the game for more than 2 hours but I finished with a plus of only 40 euros.

This video slot is supposed to be Hawaiian themed slot but it is more of a jungle oriented because of the wildlife illustrations. Symbols include flowers, fruits, monkeys, volcanoes, lizards, tribe relics and badges. The symbols are very colorful and probably for that reason the developer chose to leave the reels white. The scatter symbol is a monkey, if you get 2 scattered monkeys it will pay you 3x bet and if you get 3 monkeys you will earn 10x bet.
What I found disappointing in this game is that the scatter does not trigger any special feature which I think makes the game a bit boring at times. There are two other symbols which trigger the bonus. When 3 Mask icons land on a winning payline you will be carried away on a secondary screen where you have to pick masks until you reveal the “Collect” label. There are 3 masks out of 10 with this unwanted option so do not expect too much from this bonus even though this game can reward up to 250 euros. The other bonus is called Volcano Bonus which is triggered the same way but only with Volcano symbols this time. You can win cash prize here by picking fruits but the amount is not so high. This game does not have a free spins feature.

Big Kahuna is another old game that can be found in the Microgaming casinos. The game has 5 reels and 9 pay-lines. I really like the design of the older Microgaming slot games. So in this game, I like the design and that’s all.

For the things that I do not like here I will not write a lot, but I will say for example that the min bet with which you can play here is 0.45 euros. Then, the game is pretty boring. The reason why I say that the game is pretty boring is that do not offers any exciting feature. I’ll list and briefly describe 3 features that you have in this game.

Two of the three features are just different variations of pick up bonus. Those are the Volcano and Mask bonus. I think the game would be a lot more interesting if let’s say there is a free spins bonus. Besides these two bonuses there is also the scatter feature. Two scatter symbols will pay 3 x bet while 5 scatter symbols pay 200 x total bet. Quite often it happens to receive 2 scatter symbols but to 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols is very difficult to come by. Also I'll say that here the wild symbol changes only symbols with fruits.

My experience with this game is not great, but the last time in Go Wild Casino I stayed longer than half an hour on this game. The initial idea was to make here a maximum of up to 10 spins. But in those 10 spins I was in plus more than 30 euros and that playing with a minimum bet of 0.45 EUR per spin. After these 10 spins I had set up on 25 automatic spins. I was in plus again. I continued to play as that, as I have already said, for more than half an hour and every time when the 25 automatic spins were completed I would set up a new 25 automatic spins. At one point I was in a plus for more than 100 euros in this game, but I finished with a plus of around 30 euros.

Big Kahuna is for my taste a pretty boring game and I give her the lowest passing grade, which would be a 6 out of 10 possible stars.

Big Kahuna is a Hawaiian themed mini-slot and I would imagine some great atmosphere, coctails, Hawaiian beauties with flower garland in their neck wearing hula skirts and some seductive dance moves but the game instead provide only volcanos, lizards, tribe relics and badges, monkeys and flowers. What a massive disappointment! Seriously, the slot has got a jungle environment thanks to the wild life illustration image in the background but looking at the used symbols I really don’t know it’s supposed to be an animal, a fruit or some kind of adventurous game. We get a little bit of everything but in my opinion it would have been better if the creators would have choose one of them and made the game a little bit more specific because the play emblems simple can’t make a comprehensive unit and that’s not good for the overall pictorial effects as well as the not too high quality graphics and illustration technique. Normally, I’m not a fan of pure white background colour of the reel area but I think here the developer just wanted to compensate the otherwise very colourful screen and with lot of hot, powerful colours in use after all at this game it wasn’t a bad idea. So I can’t say I love here the interface and I definitely would have done many things differently to create a real effective visual experience to the customers.

The slot is a 9-payline game and considering this the 8000 coins main prize is really respectable but this award giving Wild symbol is not too generous while it fulfills its secondary function as when it’s substituting it doesn’t multiply the wins and only works for the fruit winning combinations but not for the two best paying symbols. The Monkey, scatter figure also owns good ability to pay us well and we can win by it 200 times of total bet. Interestingly, Scatter doesn’t trigger any feature and the slot uses two other special symbols to trigger the bonuses.

Mask Bonus starts when at least 3 Mask icons landed on an active payline then we’re carried over to a secondary screen where we have to pick masks out of 10 possibilities until the ‘Collect’ label is revealed. 3 Masks hide this unwanted option while all the other masks unfold instant cash prizes. Though I play with the game mainly $0.90 total bet and the maximum amount I won here was no more than $30 but this side game can reward up to 2500 coins. The other side game is Volcano Bonus which has same triggering method as the mentioned one but with Volcano symbols and here we have to choose from fruits to win cash prizes. This is not so good extra and I’m not really happy when it’s activated because most of the times the won amount here is not high.

As you can see the game doesn’t have free spin feature but from a 9-line slot I don’t necessarily expect it to do that. The
winning probability is not so bad at this game but it’s true the bigger wins are not too realistic even if on paper the payout quality of the game is very good. Perhaps I just had bad luck with it every time I played here but I never won any noticeable amount. I have a little issue with the game’s entertaining ability too and I’d lie if I say that my sessions at Big Kahuna were filled with lot of joy, excitement or I very enjoyed playing with the game and this observation is independent of my financial success (unsuccess) at this product. Overall, I don’t think this slot is the best made Microgaming and from the theme and its illustration through game settings and bonuses there would be lot things that could be improved and even if the potential is there at least on papers but making me believe that I actually can be won any of big prizes is another story so for me this game is just one of the many ordinary products on the market.

Big Kahuna, a 9 paylines video slot in it's Tiki style form has given me just the status quo!

I first lowered everything including the coin size because this slot appears to be set on it's maximum value sometimes. Don't you just hate it when video slots are like that? If I accidentally click on "Spin" or "Max bet" then there is a good chance I'll lose my bet for that small mistake. Sometimes mistakes can become beneficial on accident.

There are two different bonuses, one that is of the Volcano Bonus during which you have to pick a fruit to offer to the volcano. Kind of like a sacrifice. You choose from five fruits and they will grant credits, for better as in big or for worse as in small. The other bonus which I'm more into is the Mask Bonus. Lining up those mask symbols on a payline which I'm sure can be very annoying (for both anyways) but is far better than in comparison to the volcano bonus. This bonus let's me pick from Masks until I find a "collect" symbol ending my bonus. I greatly appreciate the many values hiding in these masks and would prefer most players to bet on a scale of 2 to 4 coins. Consolation prizes are left behind after the "collect" sign. In terms of Max betting I would advise that it is up to you. If hitting the bonuses more often and looting gargantuan wins is in your cards then what is stopping you from earning more? Greed can sometimes be a total payoff!

For those of you who like to make low risks, I would suggest playing this video slot on $0.45 bets. Remember to lower everything first before playing! Did I forget to mention that only two scattered monkeys pay 3x your bet while 3 monkeys earns 10x?

I find this Tiki slot to be awesome and should stand at a 8.5 out of 10!
