Graphics & Sounds (10)
The highlight in this category are the animations. These are very effective because of the use of sound. The party music has been incorporated well into the slot game, especially in the background music. The symbols on the reels are also very appealing.
Theme and Concept (9)
The party theme on an island resort will attract players and it has been conceived and executed well. The party symbols have excellent audio visual animations. The resort symbols have also been well chosen and are appropriate to the theme. The only drawback is that high value card symbols have been used, which have no thematic value.
Game Features (8)
Party Island does not have any novel or exciting game features. There is no bonus game on the second screen. The free spins bonus and the gamble game are on standard lines. There are some redeeming aspects. The highest fixed jackpot and highest scatter payout are attractive. The highest scatter payout of 750 coins is unique. Another attractive feature is that in some symbols line payouts accrue with only two symbols being aligned on active paylines. This results in more frequent payouts.
Betting Options (8)
The number of paylines and the number of coins per payline are on the lower side. However this is partially made up by the large coin size range. The maximum total bet of 45.00 credits may attract some high rollers but would be small for many of them.
Party Island does not have a progressive jackpot. But the highest fixed jackpot of 10,000 coins is attractive. When players wager with a line bet of 5.00 credits this jackpot will pay out 50,000 credits. Hence the drawback of not having a progressive jackpot will not be much felt.
