Welcome to the Love Island slot! Where the contestants are hot, the sun shines bright and finding the right couple could win you over 2,083 times your bet.
If you’ve never heard of the Love Island show then you are probably not British, a millennial, or lover of trashy reality TV.
The concept is simple: put some hot 20 something folks on a sunny island and make them fall in love. The couple who the audience love the best stays in and wins cash.
In many ways, the Love Island mobile slot does the same thing. First, you get to choose your main contestant, and then the man or girl of your dreams. Will your choice make you rich? Only the reels will decide.
This Love Island slot is a typical 243 ways to wins slot by Microgaming. You get 5 reels and 10 to Ace low paying symbol, with the girls and boys as the contestants and the high paying symbols.
The whole point of this game is to make dream matches. There’s two Hot Zones, one on reel 1 and the other on reel 5. If your chosen contestant lands on one hot zone and the other has a member of the opposite sex… you get an instant cash win of between 4x and 20x your bet.
Not much, to be fair, but fun enough to keep things going. But if you get your contestant and your hot match… then the fireworks start.
Well, not all about the free spin games, because this Love Island online slot actually has a very decent paytable – a 5 of a kind win on the top level symbols will pay out more than getting that hot spot.
But once you’ve hit the free spin, where, by the hot spot or getting 3 scatters, things get a little interesting. Mostly thanks to the fact that the wild will now expand on reel 3 and come with a 2x multiplier.
It’s not revolutionary, it’s not even that original as it’s the exact same setup as the Dream Date slot machine also by Microgaming. But the people are prettier, the weather is sunnier, and the mechanics simple enough for anyone to jump in and play.
Yes, fans of the shows will enjoy this a little more, but there’s no denying this is a light fun game, where you can win a whole load of money.

Wilds: The Love Island slot logo is the wild symbol and can replace any other symbol on the reels.
Hot Zone: The centre of row 1 and 5 are the 'hot zones'. When you first open up the game, you get to choose one girl and one boy.
If your chosen couple lands on those hot zones, you trigger 10 free spins. If your main chosen character lands on the hot zone with any of the high paying symbols you'll get a win ranging from 4x, to 6x, 8x, 10x or 20x times your bet.
Love Island Bonus Games: 3 or more scatters will trigger 10 free spins or you could get the free spins via the hot zone.
Either way, the wild expands on reel 3 and you get a 2x multiplier on any wins.
The Love Island slot on mobile is targetting a very specific audience - this is really only for fans of the TV show.
The theme is pretty enough and the whole point of this romantic slot is to find the love of your life in the Hot Zone... and walk away a little bit richer.
It's not an original, but that's not to say it doesn't have it's cheesy charm, much like the trashy TV this is based on. In fact, that's basically what this is all about - a cheesy, trashy slot with some fun features.
Good for a few summer spins, but probably not worth spending hours and hours of your time.
