A lovely sunset on the golden beaches of Hawaii, that’s the dream. A dream that Wild Hog Luau plans to make a reality!
The ambience of this title is incredible, the relaxing backtrack really immerses you in the experience and is one of the best out there. The sound effects draw you back from the hyper relaxed state just long enough to emphasise the fact that you’ve won, it’s a really nice balance that they’ve reached.
The icons are as you’d expect for a Hawaiian themed title, examples include a coconut drink, some tropical style letters and a pig wearing a lei? That’s correct, the beaches of Hawaii have been taken over by some hogs looking for a good time! The animation on some of the portraits on a winning spin is superb and the quality of the spin animation itself is crisp and clean.
The slot from RealTime Gaming is well optimised for both web browsers on desktop or mobile, there’s not a thing that needs to be installed.
Wild Hog Luau Betting Options & Functions
This title is a standard 5 reel, 3 row video slot which includes a decent 8 paylines. This title boasts both a Wild and a Scatter symbol. The Wild symbol is represented by a hog skull and can appear on the 1st, 3rd and 5th reel and substitutes for any other icon except for the Scatter. The Scatter symbol makes its presence known by the appearance of a totem pole.
This title includes a Lucky Streak Re-Spin Feature, this is triggered by any winning payline that appears on the grid. During this, the winning line is locked in place and the reels spin again. This continues until there are no new paylines on the grid. This helps inject a bit of high octane energy into this otherwise relaxed title.
Another mechanic present in this title is the Bonus Game Feature. With this mechanic, every time 5 or more Scatter symbols appear on the grid, the user is awarded with bonus spins depending on how many icons appeared.
During a bonus round, if a Lucky Streak Re-Spin is triggered a random multiplier between 2x and 10x is applied.
Wild Hog Luau is a solid title that sticks to its theme. The backtrack is delightful and can really help you relax, the graphics and artwork on the icons are incredibly well done, the sound effects are sharp and the spin animations are smooth.
It is a bit unfortunate that more wasn’t done with that solid foundation because as it stands, the title is a bit bare. With that being said however, the Lucky Streak Re-Spin feature coupled with the Bonus Game mechanic leads to some high energy moments.
This title does what it does well and should pique the interest of any video slot enthusiast.
