Aloha! Cluster Pays: Slot Overview

Aloha! is the first in what has turned out to be a long and successful line of Cluster Pays slots from NetEnt, and surely it’s a big deal with such a massive innovative effort. This is a brand new engine that many other developers have since copied. The game has a simple charm and feel-good vibe to it, and it’s the perfect slot for a cocktail under a palm tree while you’re on holiday on some tropical island.


It all plays out on 6 reels and 5 rows, and you win by forming clusters of at least 9 identical symbols. The mood is lighthearted with the idyllic tropical island backdrop and the smiling tiki totems, and you’ll be in holiday mode before you know it when playing this slot for too long. Anyway, the base game helps you out with a random re-spins feature that goes on as long as you keep winning.


The free spins feature is where the real meat and potatoes lies, and you can get extra spins as well as benefiting from a progressive symbol drop feature that removes the lower value symbols one by one the more you spin. The RTP on Aloha! Cluster Pays slot is a pretty average 96.42%, and you need to prepare yourself for a somewhat volatile experience when you play this game.


Aloha! Cluster Pays: Slot Features

What symbols are there?

Aloha! Cluster Pays pays when you land at least 9 matching symbols in a cluster, and you can make winning clusters with as much as 30 symbols on this game. The game has the following paytable:
Red Tiki Totem - pays 10,000 coins for 30 in a cluster
Green Tiki Totem - pays 5,000 coins for 30 in a cluster
Blue Tiki Totem - pays 5,000 coins for 30 in a cluster
Pineapple - pays 2,000 coins for 30 in a cluster
Coconut - pays 2,000 coins for 30 in a cluster
Shell - pays 2,000 coins for 30 in a cluster
Flower - pays 2,000 coins for 30 in a cluster



What are the bonus features?

When in the base game, any given cluster win can trigger a random Sticky Re-spins feature. If this happens the winning cluster will be frozen in place, and all the other symbols are replaced by new ones in a re-spin. If your winning cluster is improved, the newly added symbols will stick and you get another re-spin.


This, of course, goes on until you no longer increase the cluster, or until you fill all possible positions with the matching cluster symbol. You can also benefit from a substitution symbol (a question marked wooden case), as this will turn into any adjacent symbol and help you form bigger cluster wins.





Free spins in Aloha! Cluster Pays

The free spins feature on Aloha! Cluster Pays slot is activated when you land at least 3 free spins symbols on the reels at the same time. If you land 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters you will be awarded with 9, 10, 11 or 12 free spins, respectively.


As the free spins start the lower value symbols will continuously start to drop from the reels, and in the end you will benefit from only playing with the highest value symbols, namely the 3 totems. This makes each extra free spin worth a lot, and therefore more scatters does not equal a lot more spins on this game.


You can also get yourself some extra free spins by landing more scatters. If you land 3 scatters you get 1 extra spin, and this goes all the way up to 6 scatters which gives you 4 extra spins. This means that you can get yourself a total of 60 free spins on this feature, and if you don’t win on the last spin you’ll get new spins until you do.


Aloha! Cluster Pays: Slot Verdict
Aloha! Cluster Pays has a lot going on but it’s relatively simple once you get going – I found it to be nicely balanced as it’s medium variance. The maximum you win is a cool 2,000 times your stake on every spin so there’s definitely potential for big wins. All in all, NetEnt have created a very entertaining slot game with superb bonus features that are different to anything previously released – thumbs up!


Aloha! Cluster Pays was, of course, revolutionary when it first was launched, and spawned a huge array of copycat slots from many different developers. The cluster engine combined with sticky re-spins feature keeps the base game interesting, while the free spins feature is where you can really get out the potential in this slot.



  • The original Cluster Pays engine slot
  • Free spins with low value symbol drop feature
  • Win up to 2,000x your stake on medium variance game



  • No bonus game outside of free spins
