Island Style is one of the games that Microgaming has designed and released over the course of their long history in the casino industry. They’ve created a colorful Microgaming slot machine here, a classic one, which is themed around a tropical island and the kind of life that you could have there. The images shown here include the vegetation and some of the bird life of such an island, along with some classic symbols. The game has no features, which is not unexpected for a classic game. Otherwise, it’s a slot with 3 reels & 1 payline. You can win at most $12,000 while you play Island Style.
Betting and Prizes
You’re working with 3 coins at most, though there is the option of having only 1 or 2 coins in the wager. Either way, everything is used on the same payline, since you only get the one. You’re also the one to decide what those coins should be worth, sticking to a range which is between $0.25 and $5. The full betting range for Island Style is from $0.25 to $15.
While in other slot machines you get a bonus payout from the top jackpot when you have a maximum number of coins in the wager, in Island Style the reward per coin used is the same at every level. In exchange for wagers of 1, 2 or 3 coins, you can get paid up to 800, 1,600 or 2,400 coins, respectively. The maximum value for the jackpot of 2,400 coins would be $12,000.
Island Style Slot Features
The origins of the slot machines includes examples that were completely mechanical, a natural choice since digital was not around at the time. Because of the way the machine was built, it was fairly simple, without complications or features to offer. Modern games have introduced at least wild symbols, if not more, but Island Style chooses to stick with the classic side and has no features inside.
Theme & Design
You’re getting quite the colorful and pretty design from this game. If you look at the background, you will get the tropical island that the slot is based on, with its palm trees, flowers, tropical fruit and cocktails, alongside a Toucan bird. The same Toucan is on one of the major symbols, the others including fruit Bar, cherries and the regular Bar icon. The reels have yellow borders around them, while the paytable is colored in shades of purple, yellow, orange and red.
Island Style slot doesn’t deliver a very powerful experience, but its design is considerably better than what I’d expect to find in a slot machine with 3 reels.
