This delightfully colorful, online slot was released in 2014 by Thunderkick, a newcomer to online slots that prioritizes quality over quantity. With quality features such as an RTP of 97,1%, Expanding Wilds with Re-spins and “Win Two Ways” gameplay, Toki Time promises to deliver wins while also brightening your day. Watch the character symbol faces transform into a grin on a win. Those little guys are definitely rooting for you. Be entertained by an animated sky that shifts from day to night as time passes with each spin and the dancing flowers that sway and bob beneath the reels in time with the music.
It’s Toki Time!
Imagine if the characters from “Adventure Time” married characters from “Pokemon.” Now imagine their children. That is exactly what you get with these Japanese inspired characters in Toki Time. The background is a cartoonish landscape with a bright blue sky, rolling green hills, and mounds of earth out of which Toki Time animal symbols pop into the sky. Interestingly, the symbols, aligned in their respective reels, look like a part of the landscape with the characters hovering midair in readiness to be shot up into the sky with the next spin. The music is bouncy, happy-happy-fun time, kiddie carnival ride theme music. Drink a gallon of espresso, then start clapping to the beat of this online slot. Or, mute it – your call.
Toki Time is a 3-row, 5-reel online slot with 11 fixed paylines that allow players to “Win 2 Ways” (either leftmost to right or rightmost to left doubling chances for a win along a payline). The highest win along an individual payline is paid out. Even better, players will appreciate the fact that if there are multiple winning combos on different paylines, then they will be added together in a lump sum making for a happy, Toki Time slot experience.
Toki Time game design makes it simple for players to choose 1 of 14 cash bet options at the Mr Green casino (0.10, 0.20, 0.50, 1, 1.50, 2, 3, 5, 7.50, 10, 20, 50, 75, 100) and to keep track of Cash Wins, Cash Balance and Cash Bets by displaying them in plain sight along the bottom of the screen. Simply click the Casino Chip button to select a cash bet and then spin to win at Mr Green. This simple design is standard across Thunkerkick slots such as 1429 Uncharted Seas or Esqueleto Explosivo, and is highly recommended for players who appreciate uncomplicated betting options.
To win, match 3+ symbols across a payline starting with reel 1 or with reel 5. There is 1 special symbol, the Expanded Wild (a Lama whose neck stretches to cover the reel). It can only show up on reels 2 and 4 during a round. There are 7 regular symbols featuring cartoonish, multicolored Animals, a Shooting Star and a Cloud with a rainbow.
Click the White Trophy button to view the symbol values which change as the bet level is adjusted. For example, the regular symbol with the highest value, the Shooting Star, has a value of (2.40, 0.60, 0.30) with a cash bet of 10p and a value of (2.400, 600, 300) for a cash bet of £100. We recommend viewing the paytable carefully before placing a bet so you know what to expect.
This online slot features an auto play option that allows players to choose from 10 spin options ranging from 5-5,000. Click the Play button to choose. Of course, players only need to hit the Stop button to end auto play anytime. Select the Speaker button in the lower left of the screen to switch sound on and off easily. Game rules can be found when pressing the button with the document symbol.
Toki Time bonus features
Expanded Wilds with Re-spins: These Wilds only show on reels 2 and 4. They can stand in for any symbol and expand over the reel. If part of a winning combo, they lock in place and trigger the other reels to Re-spin. If more winning combos occur, then the Respins will continue to be awarded until no more wins are achieved.

Simple, Yet Effective
At first glance, the lack of bells and whistles may seem like a turnoff to slot enthusiasts. However, there is much to be said for the “quality over quantity” game design we’ve come to expect from Thunderkick online slots. The low number of symbols, “Win Two Ways” and Expanding Wilds with Re-spins all combine together into a win producing recipe that allows for some pretty decent cash wins that occur relatively frequently. The simplicity of design makes Thunderkick slots a great place to start if you are a newcomer to online slots. Whether you are new to slots, or a seasoned enthusiast, this online slot is a fun and yes, adorable pick.
