Club Tropicana Base Game

Club Tropicana Base Game and Features

Club Tropicana is a 5 reel slot with 12 fixed paylines. Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more of the same symbols (or 2 or more of the highest paying symbol) land from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.

The minimum bet available here is £/€0.12 (£/€0.18 Ante Bet) per spin and the maximum bet available is £/€240 (£/€360 Ante Bet) per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two. This game has a theoretical RTP of 96.08% and a max win cap of 4,000x.

In terms of symbols, the highest paying symbol here is the Cocktail Shaker, followed by Unbrellas, the Coconut and Unicorn Float. Low-paying symbols fall to Watermelon, Plums, Oranges, Lemons and Cherries. Wilds appear only in the Free Spins round, substituting for all other symbols except Scatters.

Special Money symbols with a random cash value between 2x and 4,000x your current bet are also present in the base game. These values are only active during the Free Spins round, unless you form a five-of-a-kind win line.

Ante Bet

Before you can begin spinning, you will be given the option to activate the Ante Bet Feature.

Choosing to activate this feature will increase your current bet by 50%, but with that comes one advantage. Once active, more Scatter symbols are present on the reels, meaning your chances of triggering the Free Spins round is higher. (RTP 96.08%)

Club Tropicana Free Spins

Landing 3, 4 or 5 Scatters across the reels triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 10, 15 and 20 Free Spins respectively.

In the base game, whenever 2 Scatters land, a Beer Glass may randomly appear, bringing the 3rd Scatter needed into view.

During Free Spins, Each Wild symbol that lands will collect all cash values of any present Money symbols in view. Wilds will also be collected and stored in the Glasses on the right side of the reel set.

Every 4th Wild that is collected will retrigger the Free Spins round, awarding an additional +10 Free Spins and an increase in Money values to x2 for the first retrigger, x3 for the second and finally x10 for the third.

If 1 or 2 Wild symbols are present without any Money symbols, at the end of the spin, Money symbols can be randomly placed across the reel set.

In addition to this, 1 or 2 Beers can appear at the end of a spin at random, pushing the reels up to reveal Wild and Money symbols.

Club Tropicana: Our Verdict

It was about time for the Reel Kingdom fisherman to take break from fishing to bask in the glorious sun and he certainly looks like he’s enjoying himself, and so were we playing Club Tropicana at times.

Reel Kingdom and their Big Bass Series enjoyed unprecedented popularity to an extend that it shocked even them, so you can’t blame them for milking it for all its worth. If you’ve played the Big Bass Series then you’ll recognise Club Tropicana in the way it works if not visually, and you’ll realise its potential too. Moving up the levels in Free Spins nets you more spins and bigger multipliers, but the wilds can be predictably absent at times.

We suppose the top level can’t come easy, and the Big Bass guy is probably just enjoying his respite passed out in a deck chair 10 pina coladas deep. Fair play to him.

In terms of potential, Club Tropicana is similar to its fishing cousins with up to 4,000x as a maximum win. It doesn’t quite evoke an overwhelming sense of excitement, but you have to respect the realistic aspect of the stats. Many claim obsence figures but rarely deliver, and we’re confident in Club Tropicana’s abilities

Overall, Club Tropicana isn’t an overly innovative title from Reel Kingdom, but it’s a refreshing take on many peoples favourite type of slot.
