Free Tiponi's Wilds Slot Machine Game
Tiponi's Wilds, by Lighning Box definitely has a lot of charm and plenty of fun , reinforced by a soundtrack that's out of this world, which you will want to keep on at all times. Add the picking game, multipliers, bonus Wilds and re-triggerable Free Spins into the mix, and you got yourself a rather addictive slot.
Not a lot can be found about the origin of Tiponi, a sacred artifact connected to the religion of North American tribes and Corn Mother, a powerful deity, celebrated in Native American mythology as the Goddess who saved her people from the horrors of famine by materialising corn grains from her own body.
Once discovered, the Corn Goddess was accused of witchcraft, and according to some versions of the story killed. Her burial grounds and parts of soil touched by her body became blessed with new corn sprouts and her tribesmen saved from starvation – which was the ultimate sacrifice of the Corn Mother to her ungrateful people.
There are different versions about the physical characteristics of the Goddess. According to some legends, she was an old woman, while others tell a story about a young girl of exceptional beauty. For commercial purposes, Lightning Box drew inspiration on the version in which the Corn Mother is described as young and beautiful and the game's Wild is represented as a mesmerising female dressed in tribal clothing - obviously, the deity herself, commemorated with the Tiponi symbol worn in her honour.
In demo version, the players start the session with 50,000 credits, wagering at least 1 credit on a single line and manually increasing the number of active lines – up to 25. The number of continuous spins can be automated and up to 200 can be triggered – all with the same bet level, active lines and coin value. The maximum bet is 20 credits per line, which comes up to 500 coins maximum bet, on the highest wagering level and all lines selected.
Judging by Lightning Box track record, the expected return to player percentage should be around 96%. A single combination payout value is determined by multiplying your bet by the prize displayed under the Tiponi's Wilds paytable, which, considering the value of 5 Wild icons (x2000), can be pretty generous.
At least 3 Powwow Drum Scatter icons will activate the Dream Catcher Bonus game; before the Free Spins are initiated, the players will reveal additional Wild icons and multipliers through a picking game, which will end when the X sign is revealed.
Up to 4 Wild icons can land during the 6 Free Spins, and the winnings can be potentially multiplied by x4 or less, depending on how fortunate the player was in the picking game. The Free Spins can be re-triggered and the new spins will be stored until the original session expires.

Original theme accompanied by the re-triggerable Free Spins bundled up with a picking game is definitely the slot's strong side – especially considering the fact that the picks can lead to more Wild icons as well as multipliers. The betting range is wide enough to attract different type of players, but for the best possible outcome, players should increase the bets whenever the balance allows it.
On the other hand, the legend of the Corn Goddess deserves some more effort put into the visual side of the slot and it's sad to say that Tiponi's Wilds did not hit the mark with this slot.
