Love Island Slot Review
Get ready to party on Love Island, a 5-reel, 3-row video slot that offers 243 ways to win. The good people of Microgaming decided to dedicate their latest release to the popular reality show. On this particular Love Island, gamers will have a chance to pick their favourite Islander and his date, enter the Hot Zone and win cash prizes up to 20x, as well as 10 free spins, depending on which Islander they land on the opposite corner, but more about that later. Playable from £0.15 per spin, the 2019 release offers a maximum possible payout of mouthwatering £125,000!
We need to be completely honest with you and say that we know very little about the Love Island TV Show, but those of you who follow the reality will probably recognize most of the contestants. As far as we can say, there are six of them, three Guys and three lovely Girls. All of them love to party, that is pretty clear, judging from the sounds of music and laughter in the background. Low-paying symbols are represented by simple playing cards, which is a bit of a downer. Also, there is the Wild symbol, represented by a couple kissing, which substitutes for all regular symbols on the reels.
We are positive that all of you will understand the rules of the game in no time at all, because the stress is on the party and dating. The Microgaming title features five reels, three rows and offers 243 ways to win. This means that gamers only have to land at least three matching symbols on successive reels, starting from the leftmost reel, in order to win a payout. Now, before you start chasing wins, set the desired bet somewhere between £0.15 and £60 per spin. After that, simply hit the Spin button or, if you prefer to sit back and enjoy the show, activate up to 100 automatic spins in Autoplay.
Two features are on the offer in the 2019 release. First, you need to pick your favourite Islander and his Date. Once you land your Islander in the centre of the 1st reel and any other islander of the opposite sex in the centre of the 5th reel, you will trigger the Hot Zone feature and win up to 20x the bet. This is due to the fact that the Hot Zone feature awards instant cash prizes. If you land your Islander and his date on the central positions on reels 1 and 5, you will again win the Hot Zone cash prize and also get 10 free spins. Land a Wild on the 3rd reel during the feature and it will cover the entire reel, doubling all wins when part of a winning combination. Also, your Islander becomes the highest-paying symbol both in the base game and the Free Spins feature, but during freebies, all characters of the same sex will be turned into your Islander, securing you more wins.
As you already know, you get to decide which of the symbols will become the highest-paying one. Remember that you can always change your Islander and his date. Punters should definitely try to trigger the Hot Zone feature to get up to 20x the bet and also trigger the Free Spins feature, for bigger wins, up to £125,000. Love Island’ RTP is 96.39%.
Love Island on Mobile
The popular TV show is broadcasted in lots of countries around the world, but not in every one.

As we already said in the beginning, we are not that familiar with the TV show, but we can tell you that the slot version is worth your attention. There will be gamers among you who are against realities, and there will be gamers among you who will say that the theme is a bit cheesy, but we are now talking only about the features incorporated. The Hot Zone feature will reward you with up to 20x the bet and, if you manage to match your Islander and his date in the Hot Zone, you will get 10 freebies with expanding Wilds on the central reel, followed by a 2x multiplier, while all symbols of the same sex will be turned into your favourite Islander for bigger wins.
