What is this mobile slot about?

A favourite with many, head deep into the jungle as you hunt colourful fruit to appease the Big Kahuna mobile slot gods.

Here’s the thing. The Big Kahuna video slot online has been around since 2004. That’s over a decade.

It has fans. In fact, Microgaming created a second follow up game to appease these tropical gods and the players who worshipped at the fruit alter.

But, if you are reading this Big Kahuna slot review then we can only assume that, like us, you haven’t come across it before.

And the thing is, slot machines have moved on a lot since 2004, and for us, it failed to impress.

Bonuses aplenty in this volcano jungle

There are two bonus features, both click me features. In the Volcano feature you only get to pick one fruit to chuck into the volcano for a prize.

In the mask feature, you get to pick from up to 8 masks until you click collect.

How much you win on either depends whether you trigger the bonus using 3, 4 or 5 symbols. And whilst it’s true that you can get more from the Mask bonus, we tend to generally get luckier in the Volcano bonus.

The pretty enough fruit machine

So what’s the downside to all these Kiwi fruits, lychee, raspberries and pineapple pieces?

Honestly? Nothing much. The graphics are simple, but sharp and clear. And though Big Kahuna works better as an iPad or Android tablet slot, it is still very playable on your phone.

The problem is that it wasn’t very exciting. There’s no free spins, no crazy wilds or multipliers. It’s almost a classic slot, but with bonus features.

Which is, no doubt, what appeals to long term fans who fell in love with Big Kahuna slot way back when.

But if we had a choice, we’d rather play Volcano Eruption or Adventure Palace slot, both simple, but one has a little more action on the reels and the second has better returns overall.

In-game bonus features

Wilds: The Big Kahuna slot logo is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols on the board, except for scatter and bonus symbols.

Scatter: The monkey is the scatter symbol and you can win up to 200x your line bet if you find five on the screen.

Volcano Bonus: Get 3, 4 or 5 volcano symbols on an active payline and you'll go to a second screen bonus where you'll pick fruit to sacrifice to the Volcano gods.

How much you win depends on how many symbols triggered the bonus:

  • 3 symbols: 25 to 625 coins
  • 4 symbols: 50 to 1,000 coins
  • 5 symbols: 100 to 2,500 coins

The Mask Bonus: Get 3, 4 or 5 mask symbols on an active payline and you'll trigger another second screen click me bonus.

This one, however, you can keep on clicking on any of the 8 masks until you hit 'collect'.

Once you do, whatever masks you didn't click on will give a small consolation prize, ontop of your winnings.

This is the riskier of the two bonuses, but also the more profitable one:

  • Trigger with 3 symbols wins 14 to 1,650 coins
  • Trigger with 4 symbols wins 14 to 2,900 coins
  • Trigger with 5 symbols wins 14 to 4,375 coins

Closing thoughts

The Big Kahuna mobile slot has had fans for longer than most. And as a simple fruit machine, it works.

Add a couple of fun click me bonuses and you can understand the appeal.

Those with a shorter attention span (ie. us) should read our Jack & the Beanstalk slot review for something with a little more adventure.
