Welcome to the island life! Boku Slots is here waiting with your lei and coconut drink, so now all we need is you. Let’s hit the Polynesian paradise of Aloha Cluster Pays, a game from the team at NetEnt. Submerge yourself in this cheery and colourful theme littered with tiki statues, flowers and the odd volcano.
Aloha Cluster Pays is a 6-reel, 5 row slot game that has an interesting way of winning. Instead of the usual structure of pay lines in order to win on this game, you need to form clusters (hence the title) of symbols on either a horizontal, or vertical direction in groups of 9 or more to win. Don’t let this put you off though because it still has a healthy RTP of 96.42% and you will find that there are a lot of ways to win big, despite the lack of pay line structure.
Bet Amounts – Betting begins at 1p, but you can increase to 20p or up to 50p. You can adjust the coin levels on each spin if you wish, from levels 1 to 10. This means your cost per spin actually ranges from 10p per spin up to £50 per spin. This is great as it makes it affordable for everyone to play this game and amend your gameplay stake, to suit your needs during the game itself.
Wild Symbol – The wild symbol is a crate with a question mark on it, which the game makers call a substitution symbol. Quite apt really as it will transform into the adjacent symbol that is needed to create the highest cluster win. It can also appear anywhere on the reels which is what you want from a wild, but it will not substitute for the scatter symbol.
Scatter Symbols – Your scatter symbol is the bonus spins stamp. Land 3 or more of these and you will trigger the bonus spin feature and receive spins that are allocated as shown below.
3 scatter symbols = 9 spins,
4 scatter symbols = 10 spins,
5 scatter symbols = 11 spins,
6 scatter symbols = 12 spins.
Other Symbols – Other symbols are comprised of red, green and blue tiki statues, a pineapple, coconut, a shell and a lotus flower. The red tiki statue is the highest paying symbol and the lotus flower the lowest paying. All of them embodying the bright characteristics of the game, whilst bringing a smile to your face as they land.
Sticky Win Feature – After each win is complete the sticky win will trigger. This means your winning cluster will remain in place for one spin and any new matching symbol that lands, will be added to the existing cluster creating a new win. The exciting thing about this is that the sticky wins will continue to trigger one respin until no more matching symbols land, so this can be quite lucrative if the symbols are landing the way you want them to.
Bonus Spins Feature – Once you have landed enough scatter symbols, you’ll trigger the bonus spins feature. Whilst the spins are in play all the lower paying symbols (the fruit, shell and flower) are removed from the reels gradually leaving only the higher value tiki statues in play by the end, which will hopefully land you some bigger wins. If the last bonus spin doesn’t return a win for you, the reels will actually keep on spinning until it does! How is that for a great feature. Also, if you happen to be lucky enough to land more scatter symbols during the extra spin play, this will add more spins onto the ones you already have.
3 scatter symbols = 1 extra spin,
4 scatter symbols = 2 extra spins,
5 scatter symbols = 3 extra spins,
6 scatter symbols = 4 extra spins.
We don’t know about you, but we are head over heels for Aloha Cluster Pays. On top of the dreamy Hawaiian theme, you have lots to keep you entertained. There are the great features offering potentials for big wins and that impressive RTP, but it’s the games originality that has us wanting more.
