Aloha! Cluster Pays Slot Review

Set in the quintessential holiday destination, Hawaii, players can expect to be greeted with the Aloha spirit as they get ready to unwind. The game was created by online gaming gurus NetEnt, any gamer will know that they have a reputation for giving us some of the best slot games to ever hit the market. Aloha boasts 6 reels and the twist is the fact that there are no paylines, yes that’s right, a game without any paylines.

The reason for the game having no paylines is in the name, instead of lining up symbols, players will need to land symbols in clusters. You will need to land at least 9 matching symbols in a cluster, either vertically or horizontally to get a winning payout. 

Bonus Rounds and Payouts 

NetEnt is constantly displaying innovation in their games, this time they have done away with the wild symbol, a shocker to say the least. They have replaced the wild feature with something called a substitution symbol, the symbol is similar, however, it only has the ability to change an adjacent to symbol into one that forms a winning cluster and it will always try to create the highest paying cluster for players. 

Additional Game Features 

NetEnt has added yet another lucrative feature to Aloha slot with the sticky win respins feature. The best thing about this feature is the fact that it is triggered at random, but only after a winning cluster has been formed. When this happens, the winning symbols will be locked into the screen and all other symbols will start to be spin while players hold their breath in anticipation. This process will continue until the original winning cluster has been replaced by higher winning clusters. 

Symbols – sticking with the theme, you can expect icons such as pineapple, sea shell, coconut and a wildflower which make up the standard symbols. The game has stacked symbols which are tiki masks that are either blue, red or green in colour, these symbols come in to sizes, the large one takes up 2 spaces while the smaller mask takes a 1 space. 

Substitution symbol – this is represented by a wooden frame which has a question mark embossed on it. This symbol will transform all other symbols except for the free spin symbols. 

Free spin – takes the form of the postcard, manage to land 3 or more on any of the reels to trigger the free spins. Players can win up to 12 free spins during normal play and up to 4 during the free spins feature.

Summary 

NetEnt has done it again with this fantastically fun slot game that captures the essence of going on holiday to a paradise island. The new additions in terms of features have added something a little new to keep things exciting. Brilliant colours and a great soundtrack round it off with a neat little bow.
