Aloha Cluster Pays pokie
NetEnt developers released the unusual pokie named Aloha Cluster Pays. There are no typical lines, winning are paid for 9+ symbols near each other (horizontally and vertically). The diagonal combination of symbols is not considered. To get a winning, the punter needs to collect at least 9 matching symbols. The RTP (return to player percentage) is set at 96.42%.
Personal testers opinion
Aloha online pokie is boring. Low volatility and low winning potential. The only way to get the big winning is to trigger the lucky re-spin feature. It is not fits high-rolling and at the same time doesn't give any big winning. It keeps the balance and then slowly taking it away. The probability of hit any winning during the next spin is equal to 20.83%. The free spins feature is below the middle line (statistically every 205th spin (0.49%)). The wagering rating is 6.01 from 10. Bonus hunters can try to complete the bonus wagering requirements here.
Review and recommendations from the testers team
Despite its quite outdated design and gameplay, this pokie is still popular among players, especially among those who love playing the bonus games and wagering the bonus money. Many reviewers recommend it precisely for these purposes. Well, let's get this sorted out.
- In my view, this is how the pokie was before, just a few years ago. It is true that many were easily wagering and some of them even got quite a balance. It seems to me that NetEnt decided to reverse this trend (probably being under the other casino's pressure). This pokie has not shown its best results lately. During the testing period, the pokie did not give any free spins after 400-500 spins, that is quite unusual for the Aloha pokie. By the way, it is still good for playing, but only at really low stakes of about €1.
- The average value you get during the free spins is 20x - 40x bets. You may still be lucky enough to see 150x bets or even more, but it will not happen as often, so it is not worth your time.
- It has a low dispersion value with a recommended 100x - 150x bets balance during a game at low bets. Considering the fact it is not as good as it was before, I would suggest other pokies of the provider. For those who are loyal to Aloha pokie, you might want to focus your attention towards its replica, Shangri-la pokie.

How to win at Aloha Cluster Pays pokie? (conclusion)
Each of our punters knows how we will start this paragraph, namely: always test the pokies in demo mode before starting a real money game. For players who want to win a good amount of money, we do not recommend this pokie. We think the best bets are up to € 1, but not higher. We can only recommend to bonus hunters if they tested it in demo mode before (to define "Hot" or "Cold"). The main potential of the pokie is in the re-spin feature, we recommend that if you get a good winning from this bonus, change the pokie.
