Players can pull up a seat at the bar and order their favourite beverage, made in front of them by a skilled waiter. Interestingly, the bartender appears to be the same character that has made an appearance in the Big Bass Bonanza series. Now, the Club Tropicana slot is set in an equatorial country on the outskirts of a lake. A selection of palm trees can be seen in the background, with the animated bartender being situated to the left. This release comes with a total of 5 reels and 12 paylines, alongside a minimum stake size of 0.12 per spin.
Club Tropicana sits in the extensive portfolio of Pragmatic Play, with most of their games featuring a unique appearance alongside an impressive set of mechanics. Some of the other video slots they have released in the past include Mammoth Gold Megaways, Sugar Rush, and Book of the Fallen. The signature user interface is a crucial feature of Pragmatic Play titles, helping to ensure that all unnecessary information is removed from the screen.
The least desirable symbols in Club Tropicana consist of cherries, a lemon, an orange, a plum, and a watermelon. Premium icons are next, shown as an inflatable unicorn, a drink, cocktail umbrellas, and a cocktail shaker, which can award players with up to 50x, 50x, 100x, or 200x their stake size, respectively, should five form a matching combination. It's worth mentioning that players only need to land 2 of the top symbol along a payline in order to be awarded with any potential winnings.
Now, it's time to look at the special symbols, with scatters taking centre stage. These are shown as a selection of drinks and can be responsible for triggering the main bonus mode. Fixed value icons are shown as money, while the wild is displayed as the barman. Money symbols can form combinations on their own, too, awarding 1x or 5x the bet if three or four create a combination.
Club Tropicana has a free spins bonus mode that can be triggered if 3, 4, or 5 scatter icons appear simultaneously. This will award the player with 10, 15, or 20 free spins, respectively. Should only two scatter symbols land on the board, a hook can randomly appear to pull another into view, activating the bonus as a result.
During this round, a wild symbol is added, and if it does, all money icons in view will be collected and awarded to the player. Wild symbols will also add progress to the different drinks on the right of the screen, with ten additional spins being awarded for every four that are accumulated. This can happen a maximum of three times, and the multiplier will be increased to 2x, 3x, and 10x for each retrigger.
Finally, let's touch on the two different modifiers that become active during the free spins mode. The first can occur when one or more wild symbols land without any money symbols in view. Explosions can turn random positions into fixed-value icons, which of course, will then be collected by the wild. Modifier number two can add beer to one or two reels, causing a wild to be brought into view.
In conclusion, Club Tropicana is a visually appealing slot that offers an immersive experience. While there is only one bonus mode in this slot, a selection of spin modifiers can certainly help to keep things fresh for players.
