Pragmatic Play – Tic Tac Take – Free Slot Game

Reel Kingdom has clearly found inspiration in the classic Tic-Tac-Toe paper game as well as the equally timeless and evergreen Starburst, and Tic Tac Take comes with a decent disco/gem theme that looks like fireflies moving in the background . It’s actually a pretty clever idea, as the X and O symbols you land on the middle 3×3 positions mirror the paper game pretty well.

The audiovisual presentation is pleasant enough without being extraordinary, and the game is all about the Starburst mechanic Tic Tac Take Respins feature. The X’s and O’s can turn into Sticky Wilds in any direction on the 3 center reels and award up to 8 respins for payouts up to 2,200 times your bet . Still, there are plenty of dead spins between respin triggers, and the volatility can be pretty brutal.

Tic Tac Take Slot Features

The 10 paylines that snake across the grid pay out in both directions, and 5 matching symbols on a payline award between 5 and 100 times your bet. The Star Wild occurs for all pay symbols to complete winning combinations, and it appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 when the X or O symbols transform.

The Tic Tac Take Respins feature is triggered when you land a series of X or O symbols vertically, horizontally or diagonally on the 3 middle reels. You get 1 respin for each complete row of X or O symbols, and you thus get 8 respins when the 3 middle reels are filled with X or O symbols. The triggering X or O symbols turn into Sticky Wilds for the respins, and you get +1 additional respins per complete line of Xs or Os you get from the respins.

The Tic Tac Take Respin feature is triggered fairly regularly, but impatient players who live in an eligible jurisdiction can buy the feature outright for 100x the total bet . This option is certainly not available in the UK and guarantees at least 1 full X or O line that grants 1 response. The RTP remains the same when you buy the feature.

The 200 Spins Tic Tac Take Slot Experience

This time we have quite a long highlight video for you, but that’s mainly due to the many big winning screens we got because we finally filled the 3 middle reels with sticky wilds. This earned us many responses with solid consecutive wins, and you can see for yourself by clicking the play button below.


We can start by saying that what you see in the highlight video above doesn’t happen very often. The base game is a dead-spin grind between occasional respin recharge wins, and more often than not you get a single respin with measly returns. We bought the feature countless times during our test run, and most of the time we only got back a fraction of what we “invested”. In other words, buying the respin feature for 100 times your stake gets expensive very quickly.

The Respins feature does improve the Starburst concept though, not least because you can get up to 8 respins instead of just 3, and this can grant solid consecutive payouts in one lucky session. The problem is that the regular single respin trigger you get most of the time just isn’t that exciting, and literally nothing else happens. The hard-limited 2,200x potential is slightly lower than its more obscure predecessor Star Pirates Code, and neither offers a maximum win commensurate with the volatility.
