Big Kahuna Snakes and Ladders Slots
Have you ever played the game Snakes and Ladders as a kid? Roll the dice, move your piece, go up if you stop on a square with a ladder, and go down when you fall on a square with a snake, fastest one to reach the goal wins. It's completely a game of luck, a fun one at that. In a stroke of genius, Microgaming software combined this simple but fun game with one of their Video Slots Games, namely Big Kahuna. Being the sequel to the first Big Kahuna Slots, Big Kahuna Snakes and Ladders follows the same theme, that of a Hawaiian jungle with a mystic Shaman. This version is revamped with some wonderful graphics, a shiny new interface, and some new background music. This time, instead of the mystic beating of drums, we get to hear some soft Hawaiian music augmented with the sound of chirping birds and crickets. The symbols have not changed much, still fruits and masks and the big kahuna. But this time the Big Kahuna symbol has Snakes and Ladders' added to it and there are pictures of a cute Hawaiian girl and boy. What's great about this is that the symbols are animated and you'll be treated to various effects if you land upon a winning combination. As usual, the interface is pretty easy to understand, and newcomers should be pretty comfortable with this game after a while.
How to Play
This game is a five-reel video slots game with 15 paylines in all. The maximum bet is 300 coins. The jackpot that you can win if you play a regular game is 5000 coins. But with the aid of the various multipliers, you can get that amount up to an amazing 200,000. Of course, the amount of luck you'll need to hit that 200,000 jackpot will have to be of epic proportions. You'll need five big kahuna symbols to get the jackpot. The wild kahuna symbol also acts as a wild symbol and a multiplier. Randomly, you might get the free spins feature. You'll get five of them, and any winnings you get will on those five will be multiplied by two.
The Bonus Game
What makes this game special, however, is its unique bonus game. As the title implies, the game uses the Snakes and Ladders Scheme, but with a twist. You start out with five dice. You only get to roll each dice twice unless you roll a six, then you get a free roll. Ladders make you go up and Snakes make you go down. The objective is to retrieve big Kahuna's mask. Of course, this is easier said than done. If you can't do it, then the last square you land on will contain the multiplier of your prize. If you are successful, though, then just imagine the amount you'll win.
