Love Island Slot Review
Love Island may well have concluded it’s current series but the fun lives in the form of a 20 payline 5 reel slot from Storm Gaming. The game, which features a free games bonus round and boy/girl wilds, is currently available at Gaming Realms brands such Slingo.com, Pocket Fruity and Spin Genie can be played from as little as 20p a spin up to a maximum of just £4.
About Love Island Slots
Fans of the show may be slightly disappointed that the slot doesn’t feature any of the contestants. Instead the reel symbols are made of up flip flops, beachballs, lips, heart hands and sandy hearts. These are joined by 10, J, Q, K and A alongside wilds and boy/girl symbols which become expanding wilds should they be on reels 2 and 4 at the same time.
Free spins can be won when three bonus symbols drop into view. This triggers five spins, but extra spins can be won should the bonus symbols drop in view during the free spins. Re-triggers increase the heat and this is shown on the thermometer on the right of the game. It’s possible to get up to a x4 multiplier with the free spins and re-trigger feature.
Love Island slots looks good and it’s accompanied by a decent soundtrack, giving you that Ibiza/Love Island vibe. The sound of waves lapping against the sand adds to the ambience. The big question is does it reflect the TV show? We’re not really sure that it does! The game could easily have been called ‘Summer Holiday’ or ‘Holiday Romance’ and you’d be just as happy with the offering.
Perhaps the closest game we can compare it to is the TOWIE slots that used to feature at Foxy Bingo. That game did feature members of the show on the reels, which made it more involved and gave the game a better association.. but then TOWIE tends to have a more fixed cast whilst Love Island doesn’t.. and there lies in the issue. The slot simply doesn’t engage us with the TV series either through those involved or bonus rounds.
This isn’t to say that Love Island slots is a bad game. It’s actually OK and we quite like the low wagering levels. It’d have been nice to experience one of the two main bonus features during trial play, but there was no sign of either in around 100 spins. On the flip side we did manage to get a couple of ‘reem’ wins! Overall this is a good summer beach themed slot but it’s also not the best TV/Movie slot we’ve played.
