As 2019 continues to draw to a close, the weather is taking a turn for the worse. While colder temperatures settle in, a new Microgaming slot conjures up images of the beach. More specifically, a warm tropical beach in Hawaii.

Players get a chance to travel to the white sand beaches of Hawaii as the central theme for this slot. Tiki Mania is a five-reel slot with 10 paylines. In conjunction with Fortune Factory Studios, it is available exclusively to Microgaming casino operators.
The central character in this real money online slot is Hawaiian Princess Kaia. She escapes to the tropical island paradise that is home to other crazy characters. At the top of the list are wild animated tikis. Classified as a game with high volatility, there are bold colorful graphics along with an enticing audio track. The game itself is loaded with the most popular features.
The list of the most innovative gameplay features include:

- Nudging Multiplier Wilds
- Frequent Respins
- A Large Jackpot Potential
The vibrant tiki party offers potent tropical cocktails featuring coconut and rum as the main ingredients. There are drums and ukuleles for entertainment. It all comes together to bring this game to life.
Trigger Re-Spins & Win Nudging Multiplier Wild Stacks
The traditional Hawaiian drums signal the arrival of Red Tiki Wilds. The land in any position on reels two and four, filling the entire reel. This creates a wild stack to trigger a respin. During the Respin feature, Nudging Multiplier Wild stacks race along the reels. This awards multipliers up to 3x. This also delivers some lucrative win potential.

The Red Tiki will also add coins to the seashell-adorned collection pot. This sits in a prominent position above the reels. Every coin collected has the potential to release the Jackpot feature. This, in turn, can grant one of two guaranteed prizes; 50x or 100x the original bet.
