The symbols you will see on the reels include the standard low-value A to 10 royals, as well as better paying male and female characters. The palm tree is the wild that performs its standard symbol replacement duties. The other premium symbols are yours to decide.
You need to pick 1 islander and 1 favourite out of the available options. These characters will be the other high-value symbols and they will play a major role in the trigger of the Hot Zone feature.
If you land an islander and a character of the opposite gender in the middle positions of reels 1 and 5, the Hot Zone is activated. You are given an instant cash prize amounting to 20x your stake, as well as 10 free spins.
If you land a wild on reel 3 during the free spins, the wild expands to cover the entire reel. Any winnings you generate come with a x2 multiplier. There is no option to re-trigger the free spins feature, though.
The Love Island is a solid effort on Microgaming’s end and fans of the show will like it. It is quite a decent medium volatility slot, so even if you haven’t watched a single episode, you should give it a try.
