Island Heat is a 5 reel, 30 payline slot from Novomatic that can be played from 30p to £100 a spin on desktop, mobile and tablet devices. With a summer theme, it comes with Mega Stacks on every spin – this also applies in the Free Games feature where up to 32 free spins can be won.

Visually, you are whisked away to a beautiful paradise island where you’re greeted by a mysterious beauty. With a Hawaiian feel, you’ll see a volcano and idyllic beach in the backdrop. Symbols include A, K, Q and J royals as well as flowers, fruits, parrots, dolphins and the beautiful lady herself.

There’s also a tiki mask which is the wild symbol – it replaces all symbols (bar the scatter) and can appear stacked on all 5 reels. 5 across a payline will reward you with 33.33 times your total stake. Before each spin starts, a symbol is randomly chosen to become Mega Stacked – this is known as the Mega Stacks feature.

Then you have the Free Games feature which is triggered by getting 3 or more magic flame bonus scatters – as well as 2 times your stake, 3, 4 or 5 will give you 8, 16 or 32 free spins respectively. More importantly, the Mega Stacks feature applies meaning you can benefit from larger payouts.

Island Heat is quite a simple slot but it does look rather idyllic – variance wise it’s in the middle with top wins of 1,000 times your stake on each spin/free spin (if you fill the reels with tiki mask wilds). If you like the theme, Yggdrasil Gaming’s Easter Island and Iron Dog Studio’s Wai-Kiki are worth the trip.
