All of you who enjoy watching Japanese cartoons are in for a treat – IGT decided to use the famous Tokidoki brand created by Simone Legno to create a wacky-looking town that brought to life all of the famous characters from Tokidoki family.
Just like in Japanese cartoons, the Tokidoki Lucky Town is filled with colourful graphics, silly-looking characters that fly around and peculiar action that could prove to be very generous, provided Lady Luck is on your side. However, the starting bet of $60 in this five-reel slot with 40 fixed paylines could seem a bit expensive, especially to penny punters.
What We Love
We were really intrigued by the Reel Reveal bonus feature in the 2016 release, since we met it for the first time. It is quite simple actually, because all you need to do is land a LP record Scatter on reel 5 and enjoy the action.
It brings a free re-spin and shifts all the reels to the left. If you manage to land the Scatter five times in a row, you will trigger all five Revealed Reels. Revealed Reel 1 brings the Caramella Wild that will turn up to 3 random symbols into Wilds.
Truffle is in charge of Revealed Reel 2, bringing up to x15 multiplier of the winnings in this spin. Pogo the Unicorn will appear on Revealed Reel 3, turning two adjacent symbols on the left into Wilds.
Wait for the Moofia Blind Box Picker on Revealed Reel 4, where you get to pick one of three offered milk cartons that can award you with up to x10 multiplier of the triggering bet. On Revealed Reel 5 you can land either Stellina, Mozzarella, SANDy or Donutella Wilds, and those symbols will turn matching symbols on reels 1-4 into Wilds as well.
If you do not have luck to trigger the bonus feature, do not despair, because you can earn some decent cash during the base game as well, with lots Wilds and multiplier Wilds that will double your winnings.
Last but not least, we were fascinated with cartoon-like graphics and an interesting soundtrack that really make the 2016 appealing and make playtime very enjoyable.
What We Do Not Like
Even though the Reel Reveal feature is very fun to play, the truth is you will not be able to trigger the feature as often as you would like, because it is very hard to land the LP record Scatter on reel 5. Taking under consideration that you need to do it five times in a row to trigger all five Revealed Reels, it might seem as mission impossible to some of the players.
The minimum bet of $60 may seem a bit costly, so those with thinner wallets will not be attracted by Tokidoki Lucky Town slot.
The wacky-looking characters will not form winning combinations that often and when they do, sometimes the winnings will be smaller than the triggering bet, and if you do not pay attention with your wagers, you could lose all your money very soon.
High rollers will definitely enjoy the IGT title, because of the $60-$600 betting range. Those who like playing for fun will have to look for their fun elsewhere. When talking about the overall visual appearance, Tokidoki Lucky Town slot houses some sharp graphics and a matching soundtrack that really carries the notion of a proper Japanese cartoon.
Even though Reel Reveal feature is quite new and intriguing, as we already mentioned, the big question is whether you will get the chance to experience all five Revealed Reels, but even if you do not, base game can reward you with some lucrative payouts to make your stay in Tokidoki Lucky Town more enjoyable.
