Aloha! Cluster Pays is a popular slot game from Net Entertainment, and while the game is consistent with the software provider’s standards of high-quality, it differs in the fact it uses 6 reels, alongside what’s known as a “Cluster Pays” mechanism. This essentially means you need to get blocks of 9 or more symbols in order to make a win, and this pretty much does away with traditional pay lines!
The game can be played from just 10p per spin, with the maximum stake capping out at £300.
As the name hints towards, the game’s set in a tropical setting, with Aloha! Cluster Pays taking place on a tropical island. You’ll follow Tiki – the main character – throughout the game, and will experience a unique, fast-paced, exciting gaming experience at all times.
Aloha! Cluster Pays is available to enjoy on both desktop/laptops, as well as most mobile devices, including phones and tablets. The mobile-optimized version of the game runs relatively hassle-free on most devices, although users running iOS 9+ will experience the best gaming environment.
Aloha! Cluster Pays is unique in the fact that the wins are calculated when you make clusters of symbols. In order to secure a win, you need to land at least 9 symbols in a 3X3 grid to win, with more symbols on any side of the cluster further increasing the win. You’ll also notice, during gameplay, that there are stacked symbols, and as you’d expect, these count as two symbols, and make landing those larger clusters just a little easier.
Sticky Win Re-Spin
The first feature in Aloha! Cluster Pays, this base-game bonus can be triggered randomly at any time on a winning spin. When triggered, you’ll notice the winning cluster symbols are stuck in place, and all of the other symbols on the reels that match the winning ones will also be held in place, while you’re awarded a free re-spin. If you manage to make a larger win than originally landed (using the stuck symbols), you’ll be awarded another re-spin, and this continues until a win is no longer made.
The main feature in Aloha! Cluster Pays is the free-spins bonus, and this is triggered by landing three or more of the scatter symbols – which take the form of “Free Spins” symbols.
Land three of the scatter symbols and you’ll be awarded with 9 free-spins, with 4 awarding 10, 5 awarding 11, and 6 awarding 12.
During the free-spins, there’s a unique system in play, that can remove lower-paying symbols from the reels, allowing you a) more chance to make wins, and b) the chance to make higher paying wins, thanks to the increase in higher-paying symbols.
You’ll also benefit from a unique feature within the free-spins, that’s relatively unseen in Video Slots – if, on the last spin, you don’t manage to make a win, you’ll be awarded an additional free-spin, with this continuing until you do make a win – something rare for Net Entertainment slots, given their (normally) shocking last spins.
