Big Kahuna is a Microgaming pokie that you can play on Jackpot City, among other online casinos. Quite what the theme is we’re not entirely sure, but it seems to be a jungle theme crossed with a virtual King Kong.
The theme is a little all over the place on this pokie, with monsters, animals, fruits and more. We have no idea what they were going for, but we doubt it worked. If you are looking for a coherent theme and one that runs throughout the entire pokie, then you won’t find that here. If you don’t pay much attention to pokie themes anyway, then you won’t mind either way.
Big Kahuna is a 5 reel, 9 payline pokie that has a fairly varied stake level. You can bet for as little as $0.05 and as much as $0.50 per coin, and you can then play for as many as 10 coins per spin, creating a maximum bet of $5. Big Kahuna is a non-progressive pokie, but it still has some high paying symbols and a fairly big in-game jackpot, coming in at 8,000 coins.
The main bonus round is the Volcano Bonus, which is unlocked with the volcano symbols. The more times you unlock this round, the more money you will get, but you can still pickup some big wins even during your first few plays. This is a game of choice, and you will unlock random rewards for the choices you make.
There is also a secondary bonus round. This is another “choose me” feature, but one that returns much less on average than the main bonus round. In fact, you can expect an average of just 5x your total stake, but whilst small, this round is much more common.
The theme may be a little confusing on this pokie, but there are some fun bonus features and big wins that more than make up for it.
