Free Aloha! Christmas slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Aloha! Christmas slot by Netent is simply a seasonal version of their old Aloha! Cluster Pays slot. Aside from a few presents chucked by the reels it's hardly any different probably because adding snow to this Hawaiian beach background would look ridiculous. Most Christmas slots are unoriginal and simply re-purposed old games with a few flakes of snow and a Santa pasted on such as Inspired Gaming's Santa King Megaways and Microgaming's A Tale of Elves. So will it be pina colada or pain for our bankroll here?
A winning cluster is formed when 9 or more matching symbols are clustered horizontally or vertically adjacent to each other. There are 6 reels of 5 rows on Aloha! Christmas slot with the extreme pays for 22+ symbols or just 9. These are 250x/3x stake Red Tiki Mask, 90/2x Green, 70/1.5x Blue. The medium symbols are all 30/0.5x and are Flower-Shell, Coconut or Pineapple. Free spins scatters can appear on any reel as can columns of mystery symbols. The scatters and Mask only appear as 2-row symbols and pay whether all or half is in view. Mystery symbols can reveal just one multiplying Wild of 2,3,4,5 or 7x and if located next to a winning cluster will turn into the highest possible winning combination in a cluster.
Randomly after a winning cluster you may see a re-spin with only that win and any other symbols of its kind left on the reels. This means you can only increase the win and re-spins stop when no improvement has been made.
Aloha! Christmas slot gives you a choice after you land 3+ scatters. Take 6 spins with Wilds at 4,5 or 7x or 10 spins with them at 2,3 or 4x. You can now also land Starfish symbols and each time you do, you will fill a meter on the left. The lowest symbols only are on it and 3 Starfish will eliminate one of them and award 2 extra spins and so-on, thus improving the reels each time.
Aloha! Christmas slot has a 96.0% RTP and is reasonably entertaining, occasionally dropping some decent wins in, usually via the re-spin feature or mystery symbols revealing a high-multiplier Wild. You can in theory win big if choosing the 6-spin bonus option but most features are pretty dire it has to be said. The game's graphics, sounds and animations are annoyingly cheesy in my opinion. If I want cheese, I'll take it from the Christmas Day buffet instead...
