Tokidoki Lucky Town – Intro
For a lot of us here in the UK, Japan and its culture is a world apart. Manga, sushi, samurais, Hello Kitty, Harajuku fashion… the Far East has never left us disappointed. Hence, I couldn’t contain my excitement when I heard about the new Japanese-themed slot, Tokidoki Lucky Town by IGT. Staying true to the Japanese theme, IGT went overboard with colours and manga influences. As the game loads, you’ll be hit with a huge tidal wave of colours.
Anime-themed music blares from your speakers and wide-eyed characters prance across your screen. However, Japan is also known as the world’s innovation hotbed. Tokidoki Lucky Town features an interesting new respin feature with shifting reels and five different bonuses! Join us as we peel back the rainbow-colored stickers and uncover the depth behind Tokidoki.
About The Slot
Tokidoki Lucky Town mobile slot features a five reel layout with an embedded 40 paylines. As you start playing this game you will be greeted with a short animation on what you can expect playing this game, and brief snapshots of the features you will find in this game. At first you may find the colours and the cartoons a bit too over whelming, but as stay we can assure you that it will grow on you (it definitely did on us). The theme is made to be fun, childish and colourful and as you may have guessed from the characters, inspired by Japanese anime and mangas.
The Return to Player (RTP) rate in this game is a decent 96.2%, making it a medium – low risk game. Fear not if you stop winning any more for a bit, Tokidoki usually compensates by giving you big wins every now and then. In our opinion, this game is catered more towards players whom are after the big cash, the enthusiast.
You can play this game from anything between 60p and a staggering £600. The 60p minimum bet may come across as a tad too much for casual players who just want to give the game a few spins, but we do think that for the level of experience that Tokidoki offers, 60p is really not too much.
How Does This Mobile Slot Perform?
We can confidently say that IGT has nailed every aspect in this game to perfection. While the theme itself may not be everybody’s cup of tea, the gameplay and every feature in this game works flawlessly. The Japanese theme that it carries shines exceptionally well with the stunning design of all the graphics in this game.
Just for bragging rights, IGT has included loads of animations and cut scenes in this game. While this may sound amazing, if not optimized properly, more often than not these animations/graphics heavy games usually take a toll on older devices. That is when players start encountering lags and delays during gameplay. Fortunately and very surprisingly, we encountered none of that. It ran smoothly on all devices across various platforms, namely on Android, iOS and on PC.
The aspect that separates this game from its peers are the Japanese manga elements that has been incorporated into TokiDoki by IGT, and guess what, they totally steal the limelight in this game. We ourselves are nowhere close to being an anime or a manga fan, but fact is, we had an absolute blast playing this game because of its super fun theme. IGT has designed everything in this game down to the details.
On top of all that, the Reel Reveal feature by itself is an amazing feat. We particularly enjoyed its two-step trigger where you triggered it first and then activated one of five of its bonus features. Not only it is profitable, the second part of the feature does add an element of suspense to the game with the five different bonus symbols.

Game Features: Stacked Wilds, Win Multipliers!
This is where Japanese perfection comes into play. IGT has pretty much gone full text book with the features in this game; you will not be finding anything ground breaking here, but every feature here is executed to perfection. First up, we have the stacked wilds and the win multipliers. The wild symbols come in the form of the crossbones, so do keep a lookout for them.
What you really want to know is that these wild symbols come with a 2X multiplier with them as standard. As mediocre as it sounds, look at this way, in reality, you will actually be winning twice the amount every time you get a wild… and it’s not even difficult to get one. As per usual, these wild symbols replaces every other symbol in the game to complete winning paylines.
Tokidoki Lucky Town — Reel Reveal
We saved the best for last, and in TokiDoki Lucky Town mobile slot, it is the Reel Reveal feature. To trigger this feature, you will need an arrow symbol anywhere on your reels. Once this feature is triggered, your reels will be shifted to left, introducing new symbols on the far right on your reel and giving you a re-spin. In the re-spin, depending on which bonus symbol that you unlock, you will trigger one of five mini bonus games. The list of games and its respective features are as follows:
• Character Wild Symbol – Converts all similar character symbols into Wilds
• Caramella Symbol – Randomly replaces normal symbols with Wilds anywhere on your reels
• Moofia Milk Symbol – Interactive mini game rewarding up to a 10X multiplier on your winnings
• Pogo Symbol – Converts two adjacent reels on the left into expanded wilds
• Truffle Symbol – Awards you with win multipliers of up to 15X on your total winnings
Here comes the best part, you can re-trigger the Reel Reveal feature even when you are already playing it. If you are lucky enough to get the arrow symbols again anywhere on your reels, the reels shift to the left again, giving you two reels from which you can get the five special symbols to activate bonus features. Theoretically, you can be playing TokiDoki with special features all the time, provided that you are lucky enough!
