How To Play

Big Kahuna has five reels and nine paylines. The coin size ranges from 0.05 to 2.25, which if you bet max, means you can bet $90 per spin, unlocking huge prizes!

  • Symbols – The symbols are all in the Hawaiian theme and symbol wins are multiplied by the credit staked per line. The Kahuna (or Shaman) is one of the highest paying symbols, five of him in a payline will land you a payout of 500 and the island lizard has the same value. Next are the juicy orange and delectable kiwi. A maximum of 5 of each of these tasty island fruits will offer up a prize of 250. Litchis, watermelon, pineapple, and raspberries are also ripe for the picking and ready to pay out if you land enough of them on the reels! 5 litchis and 5 watermelons are valued at 150, while 5 pineapples and raspberries are worth 100.
  • Wild symbol – You’ll go wild when the Big Kahuna shows up on the reels as this iconic symbol is the wild symbol of the slot and will complete any fruit payout.
  • Scatter symbol – The Hawaiian monkey will show his cheeky face on the reels, and with him comes great rewards. This quirky character is the scatter symbol of Big Kahuna Slots and 5 in a row will multiply your total credits staked by 200!
  • Paylines – The first 3 paylines are 3 horizontal lines. Payline 4 and 5 are V-shape and inverted V-shape respectively. The next 2 paylines resemble a hill and a valley, while the final 2 run diagonally across the reels in opposite directions.

Play For Free

Play Big Kahuna slot for free – it’s a great way to test out the game, and to check that you like the way the game plays, the features on offer and more!

As a lower payline slot – Big Kahuna boasts only 9 paylines – some users might miss the range of potential winning options online slots games with more paylines can offer. Otherwise, the 500 coin jackpot, together with the fun Hawaiian theme might be just what some players are looking for! Big Kahuna is a medium volatility slot, with an RTP of 96%.

The wild symbol, the Big Kahuna, is the key to unlocking the jackpot prize of 8,000 coins! All you need is 5 of these on an active payline to win and while you don’t need to bet max to win, the higher the value of your coin, the bigger the cash value of your prize.

Special Features

Big Kahuna was the first of its kind when it was launched back in 2004, as this slot has not one, but two bonus games – the Mask Bonus and the Volcano Bonus.

Mask Bonus: A minimum of 3 mask symbols on any active payline will activate the Mask Bonus, and in the game, you will get to choose masks that represent different bonus amounts until you reveal the word ‘Collect’.

Volcano Bonus: The second bonus game, the Volcano Bonus, kicks off when you land at least 3 Volcano symbols. Here you will need to choose a fruit from a selection of 5 but choose carefully because you can only select one fruit for a prize.

Playing in Expert mode gives you access to the AutoPlay features of the game where you’re able to play 5 or 10 spins at the maximum bet automatically, or you can customise how many spins you want to run automatically with the AutoPlay button.

Big Kahuna Mobile Slots

Big Kahuna can be played on mobile or tablet for both iOS and Android platforms, and it streams very nicely indeed on both devices. The graphics hold up well, displaying as sharp and clear, and when we played on iOS and Android devices and tablet the game streamed beautifully – you wouldn’t even know you were playing on a non-desktop device.

Graphics and Sounds

No need to hop on a plane to escape the cold, Big Kahuna will transport you to a tropical paradise with its bright, exotic graphics and authentic island sound effects. The chirping of the island crickets will set the relaxing island tone, but once you set those reels in motion the island comes to life! Tribal drumbeats will accompany the spinning reels and get your pulse racing!


While some players and slots aficionados may be put-off by Big Kahuna’s lower key paylines, others will recognise the beauty of the winning opportunities possible. The fun Hawaiian theme and the small but steady jackpot ensures that sometimes, simpler is better.
