Although Red Tiger is renowned for its low-potential games, the developer recently demonstrated it was capable of innovation with the debut of Laser Fruit, a high-potential slot with a record-breaking number of paylines. Aside from Laser Fruit and the occasional slot, most games follow a similar structure and payout structure, so we welcome what appears to be a minor departure with the arrival of Tiki Fruits.
Tiki Fruits is a cluster-based slot machine game set over 8 reels and 10 rows. It’s playable on all devices between €0.20 and €40 and results in a winning spin when 5 symbols of the same type land vertically or horizontally adjacent to one another to form a cluster. The game’s principles are similar to those found in other NetEnt slots like Aloha! and Lost Relics, but the inclusion of cascading symbols gives it a Bonanza feel.
Symbols of Tiki Fruits
There are ten different icons in Tiki Fruits, and the most lucrative one awards a 777x win for a cluster of 31 or more symbols. The icons depict cherries, lemons, oranges, grapes, watermelons, dices, bells, stars, diamonds, and lucky sevens. There is no wild symbol in this game, but the Totem Activator can help you win more often than not by randomly removing symbols from the reels (and adding them to the fruit meter) and replacing them with others.

Each time one of the low-value symbols settles to create a cluster, a meter tracking that symbol’s progress fills up. If a meter is entirely full, the matching symbol will be removed from the reels, making room for higher paying icons. All of the winning cascades must occur on the same spin, as the meter resets after a losing spin.
Added Tiki Spins
When the bonus meter is filled with 5 Coconut Bonus symbols, the Tiki Spins bonus is activated and a random number of free spins is granted. The bonus round works similarly to the base game, with the added benefit of keeping your Fruit and Bonus meters between spins.
Final Thoughts on Tiki Fruits
Tiki Fruits is a delightful, enjoyable, pleasant, and well-balanced slot that most definitely has hit potential, however it’s less likely to cater to the dedicated gamers because of the relatively modest potential and medium volatility. Tiki Fruits has a more exotic vibe than the typical Red Tiger slot, but it’s still not groundbreaking enough to make slot enthusiasts like us really excited.
