NetEnt is known for their excellent games, and we always enjoy reviewing new NetEnt games. Aloha! Cluster Games has a delightful Hawaiian theme, with a cartoony feel. A grinning sculpture, sprouting a flower necklace, beams at you each time you win, and the background is a picturesque animated lake, set in a green forest.

Aloha! Cluster Games is a 6 reel, 5-row slot: This may seem like an unusual setting or reels, but that’s because unlike other games, Aloha! Cluster Games uses a cluster pay system, rather than fixed paylines. In practice, this means that whenever you land 9 or more matching symbols in a cluster, either horizontally or vertically, you will be awarded a prize. Any cluster win can randomly trigger the Sticky Win Re-Spin feature. When this feature is active, the winning symbols are held in place, and the other symbols are re-spun.
There are also tons of special features: Including the Free Spins feature, which is triggered by landing 3 or more free spins symbols anywhere on the reels. When the game is in free spins mode, a Symbol Drop mechanic will be applied. This means that all lower value symbols are removed, which massively increases your win potential.
Aloha! Cluster Games is fairly simple, and the payouts aren’t especially exciting. However, it’s a low variance game, which means wins come thick and fast, and the bonus features are innovative and very exciting. The cluster pays feature is a welcome break from the typical 5-reel, fixed payline slots.
