Say Aloha to one of the brightest and most tropical slot games you will probably ever come across in your life, Aloha! Cluster Pays. You will get the chance to escape to this stunning Pacific island, where your entire slot dream can come true as you sip on a coconut juice and listen to the waves crashing in the ocean. As you are transported to this ultimate paradise through your computer, you could spin yourself up some big jackpots, including a bonus jackpot of 999x your original bet, which could be enough to have you jetting off to Hawaii for real.
Aloha! Cluster Pays is a colourful and cheerful slot game brought to you by the developers over at NetEnt, and they have fair pushed the boat out with this one. The scenery is just right for the theme of the game, with a volcano and beaches on show, and the sound effects might just have you thinking you were on a beach sipping Pina Coladas. However, the biggest selling point about this game is the gameplay across the 6-reels and 5 rows, which is different from the norm. Aloha pays out in a non-traditional way, and as the name suggests pays out in clusters when 9 symbols appear vertically or horizontally.
As you would imagine in a game that is based on the fascinating island of Hawaii, there are many symbols that convey the theme, some of which will make you want to visit it even more. Coconuts, flowers, and exotic fruits will surface on the reels, as well as the iconic wild symbol, which will be covered by a wooden box. The wild symbol will substitute for all other symbols – except the scatter – when it appears in a combination. The wild will obviously increase your chances of winning and will link up to create more winning clusters.
You are probably wondering what is meant when we use the term ‘cluster pays.' This is a relatively new feature that NetEnt have used for some of their slots. The way it works is almost like an arcade game rather than a slot, and there are no paylines as such in the game. The game is set up in a 6x6 grid of symbols; players must spin the reels and look for matching symbols appearing in clusters. They must all be adjacent, and at least 9 must appear in a cluster for prizes to be awarded.
With a classic bonus symbol and a new feature already included, NetEnt has plumped for another classic bonus feature with the free spins scatter symbol on the reels. Covered by a Hawaiian holiday poster, the free spins scatter must appear at least 3 times for players to win up to 12 free spins. Every time a collection of scatters appear during the feature, more free spins will be awarded.
Look out for a cluster combination and the sticky win feature may become active, this will make the reels re-spin, as long as a triggering symbol continues to appear.
