Love Island, from Microgaming, is a fresh new take on a classic theme. Going with the 243 ways to win that this world-class game provider is known for, Love Island comes complete with a long list of interesting special features that players of all kinds will enjoy. The unique Choose a Couple feature is something we were excited to see as Microgaming seems to be taking a more entertaining approach with this title. The Hot Zone feature is also a lot of fun, and if you are wondering whether this game has free spins and Wilds, the answer is yes to both.

How to play

Playing this game couldn’t be any more straightforward. There are a few easy-to-use selections that players can make, and the rest takes care of itself. The 243 paylines are always activated, so there is no need to worry about choosing how many paylines to play with. The choice for the player really just comes down to how much per spin they would like to wager. There is a handle icon that looks like a stack of chips and players can choose between a large number of bet amounts for each spin. For anyone on either end of the punter spectrum, be it newbie or high roller, there is also a convenient min and max bet button to either bet .15 credits per spin or a whopping 60!

Special features

We’ll give you the best special features first. In this game, you get to choose which symbols pay out the most. It is up to the player to select a preferred matchup between a few of the Love Island contestants, and when the chosen characters land on the reels, the payouts can be quite impressive. To make matters even saucier, the Hot Zone feature spices things up with a series of hefty multipliers.

We know these lovebirds may not be ready for a multiplier, but the players sure don’t complain. The Hot Zone is the centre spot on the first and final reel. When each person from the chosen matchup shows up in this zone, multipliers ranging from 4x the initial bet to 20x are granted. To make that even better, the Hot Zone will award players with cash prizes and up to 10 Free Spins, as well. You’ll definitely want to keep your eyes on the first and fifth reels.

The Free Spin can be a lot of fun, too. During the free mode, any of the date symbols that match your chosen characters will transform every other same-gender character into your chosen character. This is an interesting feature because it acts almost like a second Wild which is yet another thing that we don’t see every day. The Wilds found in this game are high-paying and will substitute for almost every other symbol on the reels. The real beauty of the Wild here, though, is the fact that it can expand to cover an entire column.


If you like what Microgaming brings to the table, this title is one of the newest slots out by the company and we think a lot of players will value its high payout rate of 96.39% and unique approach to some classic features.
