Aloha! Cluster Pays Review and Demo
Aloha! Cluster Pays is a slot game powered by NetEnt, playable across all devices. With 6 reels, it uses the Cluster Pays mechanic instead of paylines: you win when you form a cluster of the same symbol (9 or more). Playable from 10p a spin, the game benefits from substitution and stacked symbols. When you have a cluster, it can randomly trigger the Sticky Win Re-Spins feature, where winning symbols are held with the others re-spinning. Then there’s the Free Spins feature, so you can get up to 60 free spins – there’s a Symbol Drop mechanic where low value symbols are removed from the reels for wins up to 2,000 times your stake.

Bonus and special features
This game benefits from a Cluster Pays mechanic, as mentioned above. You will get wins by forming clusters of symbols and you need a minimum of 9 of the same symbol to win – a symbol forms part of a cluster when it’s horizontally or vertically adjacent to the same symbol. There are stacked symbols which count as 2 symbols to help with you win. In the base game, a cluster can randomly activate the Sticky Win Re-Spins feature: the winning symbols are held in place with all other symbols re-spinning. If the cluster increases, the symbols that increased the cluster also stick and another re-spin is awarded. Look out for the Substitution symbol which can appear on any reel – this will transform into the adjacent symbol that gives you the biggest win in a cluster.
The Free Spins feature is triggered by getting 3 or more free spins symbols – 3 will give you 9 free spins, 4 will give you 10 free spins, 5 will give you 11 free spins and 6 will reward you with 12 free spins. The feature benefits from a Symbol Drop mechanic, so low win symbols are removed, which increases your win potential on the remaining free spins. Look out for more free spins symbols during the feature: 3 will give you 1 more free spin, 4 will give you 2 more free spins, 5 will give you 3 more free spins and 6 in a free spin will give you an additional 4 free spins. This means there’s a potential 60 free spins in total available. Finally, if there is no win on the last free spin, you will get an additional free spin until you get a winning combination.
