To most of us, Hawaii signifies bright blue skies, crystal clear water and pristine beaches – in short, summer holidays. Hawaii is home to over a million permanent residents, and is one of the states of the United States of America. Hawaii is the only island-like state, and is completely surrounded by water. Millions of tourists visit Hawaii every year, including volcanologists, biologists and holiday-goers.
Hawaii is home to a rich and diverse variety of fauna and flora, and the presence of regular volcanic activity is a draw card for scientific research.
Hawaiian Treasure is an online video slot developed by IGT, and is played on 5 reels and 10 paylines, and includes a Free Spins Bonus Round.
Online Slot Symbols
Symbols include traditional bongo drums, a Hawaiian double canoe, a turtle, colourful flowers and a dark-haired Hawaiian beauty. Standard playing cards also appear on the reels.
The aim is to land a matching combination of 3 or more of a symbol on an active payline. The dark-haired Hawaiian beauty is the highest paying symbol. A combination of 5 in a row carries a reward of 1 000 credits. The turtle and the double canoe rewards 500 credits each, for 5 matching symbols in a row. The playing card symbols represent the lower value symbols.
The Hawaiian Tiki Mask is the wild symbol, and will substitute for all other symbols on the reels. It also doubles up as the slot’s bonus symbol, depending on where it lands on the reels.
Hawaiian Treasure Free Spins Bonus Round
The Free Spins Bonus Round is activated by landing the Tiki Mask bonus symbol anywhere on reels 1, 3 and 5. 12 free spins are awarded during the Free Spins Bonus Round, and the feature cannot be reactivated.
A nice addition, however, is that the player must select 3 masks from a total of 5 appearing on screen at the start of the free spins bonus round. Each mask conceals a symbol. The three symbols chosen will be the only symbols to appear on the reels during the free spins round. This increases the chance of landing matching combinations by considerable measures and offers some of the best odds at any of the mobile casinos in Canada.
Graphics and Sound Effects
The reels are set against a background depicting a typical Hawaiian scene. The colouring is vivid, crisp and clear. The music is relaxing, and the typical traditional Honolulu-Asian influence is highly noticeable. The sound effects may be turned off, if required.
The images used are all indigenous to Hawaii, and add an authenticity to the theme of the slot.
Hawaiian Treasure Interface
The game interface is easy to navigate, and the paytable information is displayed in a visible manner, leaving no room for confusion regarding payouts and winning combinations.
Hawaiian Treasure can played for free or for real money. Pre-play player registration and full download is typically not required when playing for fun. Despite the high quality graphics, the online slot game doesn’t drain your system, and as such doesn’t take ages to load.
