Based on a tropical island, Aloha! Cluster Pays is a 6-reel and 5-row video slot which does not include a traditional payline-based system, instead focusing on matching symbols in ever increasing clusters to claim progressively big wins. Developed by Net Entertainment, it includes sticky win re-spins, substitution symbols and free spins with a Symbol Drop feature.
Look and feel
The tiki feel of Aloha! is enhanced with tropical music and other Hawaiian-themed symbols in a 6×6 grid layout. Symbols include pineapples, coconuts, seashells and tropical flowers, and a grinning tribal leader cheering the player on. With a smouldering volcano background, successful plays will form clusters that appear on fire, followed by an animation from the tribal leader character
Players must match at least nine symbols, up to a maximum of 30, in order to trigger a win, hence the Cluster Pays name. Aloha!’s maximum jackpot is trigged when the whole gameboard is filled with one symbol. With no paylines, the player must decide their total bet and coin amount before each spin. This means the plays can be from £0.10 to £200.
It features a free spin bonus round triggered by getting free spin bonus round symbols appearing in sequence on the gameboard reels. The amount of symbols determines the quantity of free spins the player receives, which can be up to 12, with additional free spins offered for each subsequent three symbols. Also included is a Symbol Drop feature, which will allow players to drop low-paying symbols from the mix, increasing the chances of a bigger win.
A sticky re-spin bonus is also offered, which is randomly triggered after a win. This allows the winning cluster to remain, with new symbols generated. As long as a matching symbol to the original cluster is generated each time, this can continue until the whole gameboard is matching, resulting in the jackpot.
