The play screen is the first thing you’ll load up when spinning the reels in Aloha Cluster Pays.

Across to the far right, you will see your coin balance. You can adjust your coin value here. In the centre lies the spin button that will launch the 6×5 playgrid symbols in Aloha Cluster Pays.

Aloha Cluster Pays Main Game

In this Cluster Pays game, instead of landing symbols across a fixed number of paylines, payouts are awarded for 9 or more of the same symbol clustered anywhere across the grid. These symbols must be touching, with between 9 and 30 symbol clusters paying out different amounts.

The higher base game returns are triggered by the totem mask symbols landing in clusters across the grid. These symbols come stacked 2-high, making for more potential clusters. The green and blue totem masks reward more than double the low-value symbols, the red totem mask can reward up to 5x the lower value symbols.

There are also Free Spin bonus symbols that trigger the main bonus feature.

Aloha Cluster Pays Bonus Features

A nice addition on this game is the sticky respin feature that can trigger randomly from a winning cluster. When this occurs, your winning cluster will stick and you’ll get a free re-spin. If symbols land and add to the cluster, this feature repeats until no further symbol is added or the whole grid is filled by the same symbol.

This will reward with between 9 and 12 Free Spins, during which more spins can be triggered up to a maximum of 60 Free Spins. You will find that the lower value symbols will be removed from the grid during the Free Spins feature: you’ll only see the totem masks on screen, so high-value clusters are more likely.
