If your idea of an ideal holiday is a trip to the clubbing scene of Ibiza or Ayia Napa, then Party Island might just be the slot for you. On the reels you’ll find partying girls, DJ’s, a perfect sunset and a beautiful lady sunbathing on the beach. If this isn’t enough to get you into the holiday atmosphere, perhaps the colourful cocktails will help too.
The game features a handy wild which multiplies all wins and a gamble feature. The best part of the slot is the free spins bonus feature – offering a good number of spins and a handy multiplier to go with it.
Party Island is a five-reel slot with a total of nine win-lines. The slot pays from left to right, with the biggest wins coming when you land the maximum five symbols in a row. With a smaller number of win-lines, you’ll be able to bet more per line than on more modern slots. Coin sizes start from just 1c per line, and you can add a multiplier on top.
You’ll be given an opportunity to gamble any wins on the turn of a playing card. Auto-play and bet max are offered as MicroGaming standard options.
The highest paying standard symbol in the game shows the silhouette of three dancing girls bathed in blue light. Land this symbol five times in a row and 1,000 coins are yours. Next on the pay table is a close-up of the DJ’s deck, with a black vinyl record on a golden turntable. This symbol pays 800 coins. The sunset scene has a top pay out of 600 coins, while the beautiful lady sunbathing in a white bikini pays 400 coins. A nice selection of colourful cocktails are joined by the playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, K and A in completing the standard symbols.
The wild symbol in the game shows the title of the slot behind five blaring speakers. This will substitute for any other symbol in the game apart from the scatter. Any time you land a win with this wild will see your win amount multiplied by two, which is always a nice boost. This wild is also by far the highest paying symbol in the game. Land five in a row and you’ll win an impressive 10,000 coins. Even four in a row pays 1,000 coins, matching the highest pay out for any other symbol.
A glitterball acts as the scatter symbol. This awards immediate pays of 2x, 4x, 40x and 750x your total stake when 2, 3, 4 or 5 appear on the reels respectively. 3, 4 or 5 scatters will also see you enter the free spins feature.
You’ll have 15 free spins in total. Each of these spins comes with the added bonus that any wins will be multiplied by 3. The combination of 15 spins and a 3x multiplier certainly makes for a feature where the wins can add up quickly. More good news is the fact that the feature can be retriggered. Land three or more scatters again and 15 spins will be added to your existing total.
The backdrop to Party Island shows the same idyllic sunset seem in the matching symbol. Birds fly in the air; palm trees overhang the beach and there is a brilliant red / orange sky in the distance. As you might expect from a party themed slot, the reels are highly colourful throughout, giving the slot a real energy. The only thing missing is a high energy soundtrack throughout, although wins are met with an upbeat party tune.
Party Island is certainly a summertime slot, or an ideal game to remind you of the sun! The game is colourful throughout and the island setting is just perfect. In terms of gameplay, there is nothing completely unique about the game, although it does have two nice touches. The first is the high paying wild symbol, which also doubles up any wins when substituting. The second is the free spins feature. Wins are sure to mount up quickly during this feature – the 3x multiplier would make for a great time to line up those five wilds in a row and claim a massive 30,000 coins.
