Beyond the Reels is a behind the scene interview with experts who go into further depth about the decisions made during the development of the title and a deeper understanding of how game features and mechanics work.
In this latest edition of Beyond the Reels, we spoke to Marcus Honney, managing director of AvatarUX, who guided us through his company’s most recent addition to its PopWins portfolio with TikiPop.
The fifth title within the PopWin series, TikiPop is a five-reel video slot which offers up to 33,614 ways to win along with AvatarUX’s PopWin mechanic and Free Spin features.
Like the existing games in the series, TikiPop features AvatarUX’s PopWins mechanic. The PopWins feature is programmed to make winning spins ‘Pop’ with two new symbols.
PopWins rounds can expand the reels, seven high, creating up to 33,614 ways to win.
Players can land wins as big as 32,000x the triggering bet (€1,600,000 on the max spin).
AvatarUX Studio has programmed TikiPop with some unique features – notably a Level-Up Free Spin mode and Gamble Wheel.
TikiPop slot’s Free Spin feature rewards players with 7-15 spins and has an impressive average fall rate of 29 per cent – a factor designed to support excellent value slot sessions.
Players can also opt to spin the 50/50 Gamble Wheel, before the bonus, to try and level-up for more bonus spins.
Commenting on the launch of the title, Honney stated: ”TikiPop features our PopWins mechanic which enables exciting gameplay, but also features a thrilling Free Spin mode which offers the potential to unlock bigger wins, as the rounds progress.
”The Free Spin rounds start with a x1 multiplier on every win, but can increase by x1 after each winning pop-round, once the wins are paid. Unlocking all the reels in Free Spins, awards 2-4 extra spins, while increasing the multiplier by x2, instead of the standard x1.”
