When it comes to video slots, for the most part, the gameplay is very similar. Most have five reels and all have a selection of bonus features and wilds.
What differs from title to title is the theme and how the bonus features work. However, there are some slots that also add a different twist to what we expect and shake-up how the paylines work.
This is certainly true of a new game set to hit the online casino scene shortly, a title from the NetEnt camp called Aloha! Cluster Pays.
As the slot isn’t released yet, the information in this article is written based on footage released by NetEnt showing the Aloha! Cluster Pays slot in play.
The slot is expected to hit NetEnt casinos like Mr Green on March 22nd 2016.
When you watch the clip the first thing that strikes you is how colourful and vibrant the theme is. It certainly lives up to expectations from the NetEnt camp.
Aloha is the Hawaiian word used as a greeting, and also as a goodbye. It’s a word that means love and affection, two words that you’ll be feeling towards this slot if you are lucky enough to take full advantage of its winning potential!
There’s plenty of Hawaiian about the game, from the pineapples and coconuts to the blue sea and the all singing and dancing Kamehameha statue.
The big difference, as we mentioned earlier, is the ways in which you win on this slot.
If you spin in a win on the first three reels, all of the symbols that create that win will freeze and the other reels will re-pin around them.
This continues as more are added to the cluster and only ends when a spin doesn’t result in a new addition to the cluster.
Free spins are triggered when you spin in 3, 4, 5 or 6 free spin symbols on the reels. These then become 9, 10, 11 or 12 free spins respectively.
When spinning in the free spin mode, a symbol drop will see all of the low paying symbols removed thus increasing the winning potential.
Here’s the game in play from NetEnt.
We’re looking forward to playing the game ourselves, just a couple more weeks to wait!
