What’s better than a tropical island located somewhere in the Pacific? Aloha means both hello and goodbye, so it doesn’t matter if you’re playing this slot for the first time, or you’re a returning player. What you see and what you hear will not surprise you. Both of them are with low quality once compared to the features of other slot games released at the time Aloha Island was released.

Nonetheless, Aloha Island has pros, such as the high 50 paylines, which make for frequent, but modest wins.

Data

Due to the high number of lines, the hit rate is rather high. However, in most cases the prize is smaller than the bet itself. As a low variance slot, it’s not as thrilling in the eyes of experienced players. Beginners find Aloha Island as amusing, but once they get the hand of it, they start looking elsewhere. There isn’t anything thrilling about having the game grind away your cash balance.

Before you spin the reels, make sure the bet suits your play style. Players can place between $0.50 and $500 per single spin. Note, you cannot adjust the number of lines in play. The game has lower than average RTP of only 94.02%. A bet of $500 can bring you a total prize of $50,000.

Features

The key driving force of the frequent wins is the Stacked Wild Reel. That being said, during every turn one randomly selected reels with be chosen to become a Wild Reel. It acts as a wild symbol, substituting for any other symbol except the Scatter. Speaking of which, it’s a symbol with a text that says Free Games. You can’t miss it!

This is what we didn’t like about Aloha Island, it’s too simple. It becomes boring after only a few minutes of play. Landing 3 or more Free Games symbols anywhere on the reels brings you 5 free rounds, no more and no less.

Special Features

Despite the stacked wild reel, Aloha Island still has a below than average RTP. Maybe if Bally were to boost the base game paytable, it could become a decent slot game. We should point out that during Free Games there’s a different, more generous paytable in place. High paying symbols pay three times as much as they do in the base game. It’s something to look for. Besides this, there isn’t anything special about Aloha Island.

Conclusion

The high hit rate is alluring, and it will mesmerize even the most avid of slot players. However, in the long run the low RTP will grind away the cash balance. It’s a low variance slot, meaning the game cannot reload your balance in one spin only. Unless you’re winning bigger prizes than the bet amount with every spin, you’re going nowhere. 5 Scatters bring you a modest cash prize and 5 free spins only, this is far down on the low end.

All in all, Aloha Island cannot match the qualities of other tropic themed slots.
