Love is in the air with the official Love Island slot from Microgaming. With 5 reels and 243 ways to win, it comes with a Hot Zone feature where cash bonuses can be won. It can only grant you entry to the Free Spins feature where a wild reel could double your wins for payouts of up to 2,083.33 times your stake on each free spin.
Love Island is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot which is powered by Microgaming. Based on the popular reality TV show, you can spin away from 15p to £60 per spin across all devices. The Hot Zones feature can give you cash prizes as well as access to the Free Spins feature where a wild reel with a 2x multiplier can apply.
Visually, Love Island takes you a beach – symbols include A, K, Q, J and 10 playing cards as well as contestants from the show. The highest value symbols, a female and male contestant, will reward you with 25, 166.66 or 500 times your stake for 3, 4 or 5 on a payline. The palm tree with the sun in the background is the wild symbol – as well as replacing all symbols except symbols in Hot Zones, you’ll win 0.5, 2, 10 or 50 times your stake for 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.
When you start playing, you will need to choose 2 character symbols from the 8 – you pick 1 islander and 1 favourite from the opposite gender. These will form the high value symbols. These characters landing in the middle positions of reel 1 and reel 5 will trigger the Hot Zone feature.
When you land your islander and any character of the opposite gender in the Hot Zone will give you an instant cash prize up to 20 times your stake. If you land your islander and favourite character in the Hot Zone, you will get a cash reward up to 20 times your stake plus 10 free spins.
Once in the Free Spins feature, any wild symbol landing on the middle reel (reel 3) will expand to give you a wild reel. Any wins involving the wild reel will be subject to a 2x multiplier. The only negative is that you cannot retrigger more free spins.
Overall, Love Island is not a bad slot – variance wise it’s in the middle with top wins of up to 2,083.33 times your stake on each free spin involving the 2x multiplier from the wild reel. There are other slots out there that offer what Love Island does but I would recommend it if you’re a fan of the show.
If you like slots based on TV shows, Microgaming’s Game of Thrones (the 243 ways version) is my recommendation as you can win a whopping 20,250 times your stake in the Baratheon Free Spins feature.
