Forget all your troubles and head to Hawaii for our next slot adventure. Thanks to WMS Gaming we can wear our grass skirts and lei’s again, without someone telling us off, who said they were just for summer BBQ’s! Let’s get down to some serious hula dancing with Hula Hula Nights and see if we can’t dance our way to some wins.
Hula Hula Nights is a 5-reel, 10 fixed pay line slot that offers a variable RTP of 94% to 98% for players. In the background you have a lovely beach scene laid out with some hula music playing along, to add to the atmosphere. Symbols all have a little Hawaiian theme to them with higher values including two hula dancers and three flowers, red, yellow and purple in colour. The lower value symbols are the usual card denominations A, K, Q, J and 10, all with a Hawaiian tribal design to them.
Bet Amounts – Betting on Hula Hula Nights begins at 10p per spin and can be increased up to a maximum of £500 per spin. However, with this game there is also the Big Bet options to consider, which we will go into below. To amend your bet in the base levels, you just need to switch up the amount in the box to the right of the spin button until you are happy.
Big Bet Option – Big Bet is a chance for you to stake an extra amount in exchange for extras on your spins. This includes extra win lines, expanded scatters and more. Check out the options here:
- £20 Big Bet Option – awards 5 spins plus 20 pay lines and scatters are expanded x2 symbols high.
- £30 Big Bet Option – awards 5 spins plus 20 pay lines, x2 symbols high expanded scatter and wild symbol will substitute for scatter symbol.
- £50 Big Bet Option – awards 5 spins plus 20 pay lines, x2 symbol high expanded scatter and wild symbol will substitute for the scatter and the collect symbols.
Wild Symbol – Hula Hula Nights has a tiki mask acting as its wild symbol, which will help with forming winning combinations. It will substitute for all other symbols in the game except the scatter.
Scatter Symbol – Your scatter symbol is the Hula Hula Nights logo. Land 3 or more of these anywhere in view to trigger the bonus spins feature.
Green Reels Feature – As the reels spin some of them will turn green in colour, hence the title green reels. In the base game when these reels have finished spinning, all the symbols beneath them will turn into one matching symbol. This will potentially help in creating a bigger overall win for you. During the bonus spins round any symbols that are green once the reels stop spinning, will reveal a cash prize beneath them. Land a collect symbol to round up the cash values, but if no collect symbol drops the green spaces will turn into one of the other symbols.
Bonus Spins Feature – Having landed three or more scatter symbols on Hula Hula Nights you will enter the bonus spins round. Here you will be allocated a number of spins, dependent upon the amount of scatters landing on the reels.
- 3 scatter symbols will award 10 bonus spins,
- 4 scatter symbols will award 15 bonus spins,
- 5 scatter symbols will award 25 bonus spins.
During the bonus spins round the green reels feature is active and you also have an extra symbol in play. The extra symbol is called the collect and offers players a chance to reap two different types of rewards as shown below.
Collect Symbol – This symbol is only available in the bonus spins round and it is green with a neon palm tree on it. When this symbol lands you will collect any of the cash values shown in the green reels within the bonus spins feature. This is a nifty little extra and a great way to have your balance boosted. But land three or more collect symbols to add bonus spins to the round.
- 3 collect symbols awards 10 bonus spins to the total,
- 4 collect symbols awards 15 bonus spins to the total,
- 5 collect symbols awards 25 bonus spins to the total.
Hula Hula Nights is an interesting game that’s for sure, even though at first glance it doesn’t look like it will offer much by way of entertainment. But once you get inside the game and start playing you will be pleasantly surprised. The big bet option is something we have seen before in other games, only with Hula Hula Nights you get 5 spins included for the one extra stake instead of just one which is a nice addition. Wins happen often in both the main and bonus games thanks to those green reels spinning away and adding those matching symbols to the reels. Let’s not forget that collect symbol either, because when that hits you are in for a treat or two and that can really help extend those bonus spins when needed. Overall a great little game, yes it could have had a bit more time spent on the graphics, but hey it’s the wins we are here for after all and with an RTP hitting upwards of 98% we can’t complain.
