Aloha! Cluster Pays is a very colorful and tropical slot game by NetEnt that doesn’t use paylines. Instead it uses clusters.
The total game is a grid of 30 symbols and 9 or more of the same symbols that are horizontally or vertically connected count as a cluster and a win.
The game doesn’t have wild symbols, but it does have mystery symbols. After the reels stop spinning all mystery symbols will turn into one and the same symbol.
During normal play the Sticky Win Re-spin feature might be triggered after a winning combination.
All winning symbols are held and all other symbols will re-spin.
As long as you improve on the initial cluster you will receive another free re-spin. The re-spins will stop when the cluster isn’t improved, after which you are paid.
Getting 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatter symbols will award 9, 10, 11 or 12 free spins respectively.
During free spins every second spin the lowest paying symbol at that point is removed, until only tiki masks, scatter symbols and mystery symbols appear on the reels (after 8 spins).
3, 4, 5 or 6 scatter symbols during free spins will add 1, 2, 3 or 4 free spins respectively.
If you don’t get a winning combination on the last spin, the game will keep re-spinning until you do.
Aloha! Cluster Pays is a rather different slot game than most NetEnt slot games, because of those clusters.
But I do like it a lot. The game is very colorful and uses a nice Hawaiian theme with a great soundtrack.
The free spins feature is great, but seems to trigger pretty hard. Don’t expect a lot of free spins features in a row on this game. But the free spins feature is a lot of fun, removing those low paying symbols really increases your chances on a big win. And that guaranteed win on your last spin is also very nice.
And finally, Aloha! Cluster Pays can pay big wins. Those Tiki’s can pay big.
If you are looking for a unique, upbeat, tropical slot game, that is also a lot of fun, try Aloha! Cluster Pays!
