Slot tester's review: Toby Nisbet
Island life is now accessible with a few clicks of your mouse with Tahiti Gold from Elk Studios. Transport yourself to a sunny archipelago complete with blissful tiki beats, calming waterfalls and intricate stone carvings. Oh, and there’s also up to 262,144 ways to win.
A Taste of Tiki
If drinking overpriced tiki cocktails from cumbersome ceramic mugs is your idea of a good time, Tahiti Gold has you covered with this 2019 release from Elk Studios. Taking a South Pacific theme as its inspiration, Tahiti Gold has all the visual tropes expected from a slot set in French Polynesia.
Both exotic and escapist in its graphics approach, it’s easy to be seduced by the clear blue skies and tropical stone carvings that are the visual foundations of Tahiti Gold. Kind of looking like Tom Hardy gone off-grid, a western explorer donning what looks more like Mayan tribal dress is the face of our slot. Perhaps he’d forgot to get changed after his previous adventure in Ecuador Gold, who knows.
Cultural accuracy aside, the Tahiti Gold’s design is superb. Moody low lighting with sprightly symbol hues creates an atmosphere that feels well-rounded and immersive.
For 6 on a payline, symbols pay as follows:
With a cascading reels mechanic, the backdrop of a tumbling waterfall is a fitting setting for Tahiti Gold.
Tahiti Gold employs a cluster pays mechanic with paylines varying between 4,096 and 262,144, paying from left to right.
Tahiti Gold, much like a tiki totem, is stacked full of features. The Wild Forge, Eye of Tiki, Bonus symbols, Wilds and Avalanche Free Drops are on hand to give the gameplay a hand.
Available on reels 3,4,5 and 6, the Wild Forge symbol locks in place once it lands. Behold the mighty Wild Forge spews its molten contents, creating further wilds.
Land two or more Eye of Tiki symbols and watch on as the cyclopic Eye of Tiki symbols shoot a beam of light between matching symbols, obliterating all symbols in between while adding an extra row of symbols above.
An erupting volcano represents the bonus symbol in Tahiti Gold. Spin 3 or more of these to trigger the Free Drops bonus game. Here, Free Drops can be retriggered.
In Tahiti Gold, wilds substitute for all symbols except for the bonus symbol, Wild Forge and Eye of Tiki symbols.
Tahiti Gold’s bonus game comes in the form of Avalanche Free Drops. Land 3 or more bonus symbols and you enter into the Avalanche Free Drops bonus game. The exact number of Free Drops you’re awarded is dictated by the number of bonus symbols that land on the reels. 3, 4, 5 or 6 bonus symbols will award players with 10, 15, 20 or 25 Free Drops respectively.
Land 3 or more bonus symbols during the Free Drops round and these will retrigger Avalanche Free Drops.
High volatility Tahiti Gold comes with a 96.1% RTP minimum and maximum bet of $0.2 and $100 respectively. Maximum win exposure is set at 5,000x and paylines vary from 4,096 up to a massive 262,144.
No slot is an Island
Tahiti Gold has a lot going for it. Graphically, although perhaps not entirely accurate, the visuals are designed with care and attention. Vibrant tones really lift both the symbol imagery and background design, bringing a solid visual appeal to the slot.
The Eye of Tiki and Wild Forge features are a nice touch, both enhancing gameplay and bolstering visuals with neat animations.
Hard to fault, Tahiti Gold proudly continues the success of Ecuador Gold, with a few added extras chucked in for good measure.
So, where does the journey go from here? With a host of ‘Gold’ titles to choose from, players can also get involved with Voodoo Gold, Katmandu Gold and Black River Gold.
An impressive slot, with ambitious features and an expansive mechanic, Tahiti Gold is your perfect island getaway.

I like long strolls on the beach, walking in the rain and dancing like no one's watching.... Well, okay, perhaps that's not 100% accurate. A casino connoisseur and a poker brain, I've worked in various forms of iGaming from offline casinos to poker TV shows to online operators.
