Microgaming Party Island Complete Slot ReviewReady to have a super fun time in Ibiza? Well, for the time being, this is the closest you can get! Microgaming sure knows how to organize a crazy party, and what better location than an island all to ourselves? Hence the title “Party Island”! Get your ‘tan and tune’ game face on and join us in discussing this 5-reel, 9-pay-line video slot! Who knows, maybe at the end you will feel the itch to try it for yourself?

Just keep one thing in mind before you do. Just like an awesome party in real life can turn into a massive throbbing headache, and a full-blown hangover in general, this slot can also rob you of your bankroll if you’re not careful with your gameplay. If you’re aware of this risk, and would still like to take your chances, then you’ll be happy to know that you can join the party via any of your portable devices!

Wild Symbols, Wild Fun!

While the high-value Symbols are all beach party-themed, the low-value Symbols are, yet again, represented by Playing Card Symbols, from 9 to Ace, in various colors.

We have all been (unwillingly) acquainted with those moments in slot games when the wins just aren’t coming as often as we’d like. And in such a case, a Wild Symbol, with the ability to double any wins, would certainly be a welcome sight!

Well that’s the case here, folks, as Wilds come with 2x Multipliers attached to them! You will recognize the Wild Symbol, as it is represented by the slot’s Logo, and does its job by also replacing any other symbols your reels, except for the Scatter Symbol, but more on that later.

This 2x Multiplier somewhat makes up for the old-fashioned, generic look when it comes to the game’s graphics. Sure, it looks all sparkly and dazzling at first glance, but then you realize it’s not exactly all it’s hyped up to be, at least not in our eyes.

Still, let’s not get too critical with this Microgaming slot, as it’s not like it hasn’t got anything good to offer the player. For one thing, there are the Free Spins to look forward to, rather a key feature in recognizing a Microgaming slot. To be more specific, we’re talking about 15 Free Spins coupled with a 3x Multiplier here!

Having Said That…

As exciting as those Free Spins can be, we also feel obliged to mention that here it took us longer than it usually would to get to them. And once we finally did, we were also not overjoyed with getting no more than 20x that of our bet.

Having Said That…

Again, we really hate to sound like ‘negative Nellies’ and ‘rain on Microgaming’s parade’ with this slot…But we’re just giving our two cents here, and Microgaming has done much better, take it from our experience. It’s not that we mind the fact that this slot ‘tickles the player’s wallet’, but as long as we’re playing with real money, we may as well enjoy some other 5-reel, 9-pay-line slot.

Let’s not get too lost in the forest of criticism and complaints, as there’s also the Scatter Symbol to talk about. In this slot, it is represented by a Disco Ball, and by landing 3, 4, or 5 of its kind, absolutely anywhere on your reels, will, like we said, trigger up to 15 Free Spins combined with a 3x Multiplier.

One positive side to this online video slot is that 5 of these Disco Ball Scatter Symbols award the player a hefty 750 times that of their bet win. As unlikely as 5-of-a-kind opportunities can be, this is still pretty awesome.

Last but not least, you should know that the coin values range from 0.01 - 1.00, while the minimum bet per spin equals 0.09, and the maximum one per spin amounts to 45. This is good news indeed, as it means any player, no matter their budget size, can try their luck with this video slot. Then there’s the maximum win to consider, which is certainly no small matter - 151,875!

Paradise Lost?

We know we may have been a little extra harsh with this one, and it’s not like the fun theme, energetic music, and decent potential payouts are anything to scoff at. If you’re the kind of player who’s into this type of online slot, then by all means, we urge you to give it a shot on one of our top-rated online casinos. Just don’t get lost in all the party madness!
