Aloha! Cluster Pays Slot Review
Get ready for a fun trip to Hawaii, where you will be greeted by a smiling Tiki and play the Aloha! Cluster Pays video slot, which features six reels and five rows. Set under a volcano, the 2016 release is visually impressive. There are several neat additions gamers can benefit from, including the Substitution Symbol, which transforms into the adjacent symbol that creates the biggest winning cluster. Also, there are stacked high-value symbols, the Sticky Win Respins feature, triggered randomly, and the Free Spins feature, where punters can trigger up to 60 freebies with low-paying symbols removed.
Put your Hawaiian shirt on, because it can get really hot under an erupting volcano. The smiling Tiki statue will be there to keep you company and cheer you when you land a winning cluster. As for the symbols populating the reels, there are three different Tiki Masks that act as high-paying symbols. They are two-cell high symbols, but can also appear in regular size during respins. Other symbols include a Pineapple, Coconut, Shell and a Flower. Instead of a Wild symbol, a Substitution Symbol is used and it transforms into the adjacent symbol that creates the biggest possible winning cluster. The Tickets to Hawaii are used as Scatters which trigger the Free Spins feature.
The NetEnt title features five reels, six rows and benefits from cluster pays. This means that players need to land a cluster of 9 or more matching symbols horizontally or vertically adjacent in order to win a payout. The best thing about cluster pays is that you can form a winning cluster anywhere on the reels. Betting starts at £0.10 per spin, but take under consideration that it is possible to set the coin value (£0.01-£2) and the bet level (1-10), so the biggest wager you can set is £200. Once you get tired of hitting the Spin button, activate Autoplay, which offers up to 1,000 automatic spins, and enjoy the show.
First of all, there is the Sticky Win Respins feature, which is triggered randomly after any winning cluster. During the feature, all winning symbols are locked, while other symbols perform a respin. The feature continues until you get new symbols that increase the starting winning cluster.
Land three, four, five or six Scatters on the reels to trigger the Free Spins feature and get 9, 10, 11 or 12 freebies. Free Spins come with a Symbol Drop feature, which means that all low-paying symbols are removed from the reels for bigger wins. Land 3, 4, 5 or 6 extra Scatters to get 1, 2, 3 or 4 additional freebies. It is possible to trigger up to 60 free spins at once. If the last free spin does not come with a win, freebies continue until a winning spin occurs.
If we are to believe the good people of NetEnt, the biggest possible payout gamers can expect is set at 100,000 coins. Set the coin value to the max and you can pocket £200,000. The Red Tiki Mask offers the most, 10,000 coins for 30 symbols in a winning cluster. It is easier to land such a win during the Free Spins feature, when all low-paying symbols are removed. Aloha! Cluster Pays’ RTP is 96.42%.
Aloha! Cluster Pays on Mobile
We firmly believe that there isn’t a person in the world that would not like to enjoy the beauties of Hawaii. Unfortunately, such a destination is not available to everybody. That is probably one of the reasons NetEnt developed a video slot that will make you feel as if you are actually there, so you can visit the sandy beaches from the comforts of your homes, or on the go, because the 2016 release is playable across all devices.
+ Beautiful visuals
+ Sticky Win Respins increase the winning cluster
+ free spins with high-value symbols only
– Respins are not activated that often
– No multipliers
– Takes time to trigger freebies
We have to be completely honest with you and say that we really enjoyed our stay at Hawaii. Aloha! Cluster Pays is a fantastic video slot. It houses great visuals and a fitting soundtrack, while offering neat additional features that can really help you land awesome wins. First, we have the stacked high-paying symbols, then there is the Sticky Win Respins feature, which increase the winning cluster. The Substitution Symbol is also very helpful when creating winning clusters. Finally, there is the Free Spins feature, where up to 60 freebies wait for you and only high-paying symbols appear. Plenty of reasons for you to visit Hawaii these days.
