How would you like to travel to Hawaii? Just think of it – the beach, the lights, the celebrations, the colorful dress… everything you would expect from a luau is here.
Oh, and the hogs, of course. What else did you expect?
Occasionally, a slot game is released that gives us a theme we never thought we’d see. That’s good if you’re the kind of player who likes to try something new. But does the Wild Hog Luau slot game give you some entertainment, some unusual features, and some good prizes to chase after? Let’s find out.
Which team is behind the release of this slot game?
We’ve got Realtime Gaming to acknowledge for the hard work that has gone into this game.
RTG has released a demo too
If you are keen to try the game to see what you think, you can do just that thanks to the practice option they have given us to experiment with. It looks the same as the real one, but it has a demo balance of $1k to play around with.
Is this an odd theme?
Well, if you want to mix hogs with a Hawaiian luau, then we guess you can see it is now possible. It works, though, especially if you like your slots to come with plenty of color.
A sharp design
The first thing we noticed about Wild Hog Luau slots was the appearance of the pigs. They’re sharp! There’s lots of detail here, and those hogs sure do look real to us.
The game includes the letters and numbers relating to playing cards, but they look as though they’re made from wood and are decorated to suit the theme.
How to play the Wild Hog Luau slot game
This game has five reels separated by what looks like rope. The reels are sitting inside a Hawaiian hut of sorts, with totem poles on either side to prop up the straw roof. While lots of RTG slots come with progressive prizes, the biggest prize here is a fixed one, as shown on the paytable.
A hog’s skull (poor thing) is used as the wild symbol and is labeled on a banner too. This can show up on the first, third, and fifth reels and replaces most other icons you might encounter. The exception, as you would probably guess, is the multicolored hog’s head totem pole icon. This one is hard to miss.
How many paylines are in this slot game?
You can play on just eight on this occasion, which is far fewer than you get in many other slots from this developer.
What are your betting options?
The lines are fixed, so you simply need to use the up and down arrows to adjust the bet amount you want to pay for each spin. The lowest is just eight cents though, so that would qualify this as a penny slot.
If you’d rather pay more to play, you can go up to $40 maximum.
The burger icon reveals the route to the paytable
Hit that just to the left of the 8 lines logo. Four options appear, and you need to pick the info button to reveal the first of nine paytable pages.
Does the game include a bonus?
It does, and it occurs during the base game and the free spins. This is the Lucky Streak Re-spin, so it isn’t a bonus game as you might expect it to be.
Whenever you pick up a prize, those winning icons are frozen in the positions they landed in. Everything else in view then goes through a respin at no cost to you. If you improve on your prize in the respin – or collect another winning combo – all winning symbols freeze where they are for another free respin of everything else.
This process carries on until you get a spin where nothing else is won. We had a spin where we ended up with three respins and several prizes, so it can be nice to see.
Wild Hog Luau free spins
The game also includes a chance to get some free spins – 10 of them, in this case. To unlock them, you need three scatter symbols appearing in any combination of positions.
The chance is there to get another eight spins too, but only if you find another collection of three scatters during the first 10 games.
Another neat feature in the free game feature is that the Lucky Streak Re-spin can still occur. This time it has a multiplier element that gets bigger with each successful respin, so there is a chance you could garner more prizes of a greater value here.
No RTP value has been released
This is common with RTG games, so there is every chance we won’t know the exact value for this one either.
Wild Hog Luau gets a good rating from our team
We are going to rank this as an 8/10 slot game. With respins and free spins up for grabs, it’s a cool one to play – and that’s without touching on the amusing theme.
Where are the biggest prizes hiding?
The best ones are gleaned from the hogs themselves, with one worth the biggest amount of all. The paytable amounts listed for prizes change depending on the coin value you have chosen. Another reason to look closely at the paytable before you begin.
Try the demo version to meet the hogs
There is a lot to take in when you first play this game, so it’s a great idea to try the demo first. It is identical to the game you’d play if you changed over to the real version.
Play for real from just eight cents a spin
With just eight cents to cover eight lines, it’s easy to see how this game might appeal to lots of players. The top wager is big enough to appeal to lots more people too.
This game is set up for mobile players too
Yes, you can play Wild Hog Luau on Android and iOS devices if you prefer accessing your slot games in that way.
