Big Kahuna II Slot Review

The original Big Kahuna slot machine was an instant hit when it was launched in 2003. At the time it was the only online slot to have two bonus features. Now we have the sequel with the Big Kahuna - Snakes and Ladders video slot machine. This time the game has 5 reels and 15 lines instead of 9 lines.

You have quite a range of betting levels with this game as you can play up to 20 coins per line. This makes for a maximum bet of 300 coins. Coin sizes start at 1 cent and go up to 25 cents so the max bet range is $3 to $75.

If you have a smaller budget you can get away with playing less than max bet without missing out on any of the bonuses. Of course the bigger you bet the bigger the potential wins. Top jackpot is 5,000 coins which at max bet pays a big 100,000 coins.

To win the top jackpot you need to line up 5 of the wild Big Kahuna logos. The wild substitutes for everything but the scattered snakes. The wild also acts as a win multiplier for all wins except the five wilds. Getting at least one wild as part of a win doubles that win.

Second highest pay on Big Kahuna is 2,000 coins for 5 masks. This is followed by a 1,000 coin win for 5 jungle boys and a 700 coin win for five jungle girls. In total there are just over 30 unique winning combinations on the reels so there are lots of ways to win on every spins.

The game has a free spins bonus but it is not triggered by any symbols on the reels. The free spins can be awarded at any time and you win 5 free games with all wins doubled. During the free games the wild symbols multiply wins by 4 and the top jackpot grows to a game high of 200,000 coins.

The scattered snake symbols appear on reels 1, 3 and 5 only. These scatters are the key to winning a shot at the Snakes and Ladders bonus game. You need to get all three on the screen to activate the bonus. You then move on the second screen where you get a bonus board (View Screenshot).

On the bonus boars you have 100 positions with snakes and ladders appearing on the board. You get five rolls of the dice to get as high up the board as possible. If you roll a six you get a free bonus roll. After each roll you progress along the game board.

Just like the original snakes and ladders game if you land on a ladder you move up the ladder and if you land on a snake you move down the ladder. The higher you get on the board the more you win on the bonus. The payouts are worked out by multiplying your bet by the position you land on.

Get right to the top and you win 100 times your bet or 30,000 coins. It is always good to see a new bonus feature and this one keeps you interested as on any roll you can move up or down quite quickly. A nice touch is the talking heads who comment on your progress and make funny remarks.

Overall, Big Kahuna - Snakes & Ladders is an excellent sequel to one of the nets most popular bonus slots. If you are fan of the original it is a must play and even if you have not played the original the bonus feature alone makes it well worth a look.
