Aloha! Cluster Pays – Video Slot Review

Aloha! Cluster Pays from NetEnt

NetEnt is taking you to the tropics with this Hawaiian-inspired slot game! Aloha! Cluster Pays is a unique video slot game with 6 reels, 5 rows, and no set paylines. That’s right, you don’t win with the traditional paylines in this game – you win on something called “clusters”.

A cluster forms when 9 or more of the same symbols are either horizontally or vertically adjacent. The more symbols in a cluster, the bigger your winnings!

Large, colored tikis are stacked and serve as two symbols during the regular game and free spins. Small tikis count as one symbol but only appear during Sticky Win Re-Spins and when replacing a Substitution Symbol. The Free Spin symbol also appeared stacked but only counts as one symbol, whether partially or fully appearing on the reels.

Substitution symbols act like a standard Wild, changing to whatever adjacent symbol will create the highest paying winning combination.

Every now and then, a winning cluster will trigger the Sticky Win Re-Spins bonus. During this feature, the winning symbols stay in place while the remaining symbols spin again. If the cluster expands, the non-winning symbols will spin again. The feature keeps going until the cluster size no longer increases with the re-spin.

3 or more Free Spin ticket symbols – whether fully or partially appearing on the reels – will activate the Free Spins feature. Depending on the number of tickets that appear, you can get from 9 to 12 free spins! You may also get additional free spins during this bonus when at least 3 tickets appear.

The Free Spins bonus feature starts with all of the regular Hawaiian symbols on the reels. However, as the free spins progress, the low value symbols drop completely from the screen. Thanks to this Symbol Drop element, each succeeding free spin gives you higher chances to win bigger!

Out of free spins sooner than expected? Don’t fret! If you don’t win on the last free spin, you’ll automatically get re-spins until you win.
