Snakes And Ladders is a classic board game familiar to most people. The game supposedly originated in India during the 19th Century, and is now regarded a classic game, worldwide. The game is played on a game board containing numbered squares forming a grid. A number of Snakes And Ladders appear on the game board, connecting some of the squares on the grid, with other squares on the grid.
The aim is to navigate from one end of the board to the other, being helped by ladders and trying to avoid being hindered by snakes. The number of moves awarded to a player per turn, is determined by the roll of a die. The game is exceptionally popular, and is completely based on chance.
The classic favourite has now been developed into an online slot game with a colourful, tropical island feel, by Microgaming. Big Kahuna Snakes And Ladders is played on 5 reels and 15 paylines, and the game can be accessed in order to play merely for fun and free, or for real money.

Snakes And Ladders Quest Special Feature
The Snakes and Ladders Quest Feature is the game’s bonus game. The feature consists of a game of Snakes and Ladders. The bonus game is activated by landing the Snakes And Ladders bonus symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5.
During the bonus game, the player will be awarded five rolls of a dice. As is the case with the board game, the value on the dice will determine the number of spaces that a player is permitted to move forward. Landing on a ladder means progressing upwards on the grid, whilst a snake will send you on your merry way in the opposite direction.
An added bonus is awarded whenever the number six is rolled on the dice. An additional roll of the dice is awarded.
Progressing upwards on the grid awards higher prizes and increased multipliers. Should the chips fall in your favour and you manage to reach the very top of the grid and grab hold of the mask, a X100 total bet multiplier will be the ultimate reward.
