Party Island Slot Review
Party Island, one of Microgaming’s tropical slots, is at the same time based on the party focused life that one might find in famous nightlife locations. Ibiza, in Europe, is just the kind of place that I’m referring too, and it fits the look of the game perfectly, including beautiful women sitting on the beach, fruit cocktails, DJs and ladies dancing in a club. The game has its downsides, mostly in the fact that it offers only 9 lines on the 5 reels available, but there are pluses for it as well, and here I would include the presence of wilds which can double prizes, of free spins which can triple them, and of scatters, of course. The biggest prizes that Party Island can bestow upon its loyal players will reach values of $50,000.
Betting and Prizes
Given that this is a game with 9 lines, the betting system is the one that you would expect from such a title. You have 9 lines, to use as you please, to activate or deactivate as needed. For each line that you do keep active, you need to wager at least 1 coin, but the line bet can be taken up to 5 coins. Because the coin value can be set anywhere between $0.01 and $1, the line bet can reach $5, while the total for 9 lines could get to $45.
The rewards are particularly good in this case, the game paying up to 10,000x when it forms the right combo on one of its lines. It can mean $50,000 cash for you in the base game, but that amount triples during free spins, to $150,000.
Party Island Slot Features
Look out for the Party Island Logo, because that is the symbol which will offer that huge payout that I mentioned above. You use it as a wild symbol, which has the ability to substitute for another icon, to take part in the formation of a new combination and to get you paid a lot more if you stick with this game in the long run. The wild will double the prize as well, so that’s another reason why you should wish to have it in your combinations.
As for the Disco Ball scatter, you use it to trigger features, but you also get paid by it, and at 750x the bet value it’s quite a generous symbol to take advantage of. You have 15 free spins from three or more scatter symbols present on the reels of the game, and a 3x multiplier will make even the lowest payouts look a lot better. You may even retrigger free spins, with another set of 3+ scatters.
Theme & Design
Though the developer has included the usual array of ugly poker cards in the design, the slot has its advantages as well, with about seven themed symbols, including the two features, the dancing girls, the DJ spinner, the sunset, a girl on the beach and the cocktails.
Party Island slot is not your typical 9 line game, which so often will be a boring affair. It’s full of features and it can pay very well, so it’s already one of the best in its category.
