Hula Hula Nights 1 - partycasino

If you’ve got a passion for Polynesian culture but can’t imagine yourself forking out for a trip to Hawaii any time soon, do the next best thing and don your grass skirt for a flurry of spins on Hula Hula Nights.

A five-reel, 10-payline game from WMS, Hula Hula Nights is a simply designed affair that prioritises quick-fire gameplay rather than attempting to dazzle players with overly complicated bonus features.

The reels are situated in front of a perfect postcard image of a Polynesian beach, with gently crashing waves and swaying palm trees tinted in red and purple. Trimmed with a golden border and topped by the Hula Hula Nights logo and an accompanying Tiki mask, the overall effect is to ensure that the game is a colourful yet straightforward affair, with all buttons and bet values clearly displayed at the bottom.

In terms of unique symbols, Hula Hula Nights includes a selection of exotic flora and two local ladies decked out in traditional Hawaiian attire. The standard ace-through-ten playing card values are still present on the reels – though even these benefit from a slight stylistic makeover – while a Tiki mask acts as the game’s substitute wild and a coconut cocktail is the game’s bonus-triggering scatter icon.

As the reels spin, players will be treated to the gentle lilt of a ukulele played in the unmistakable Hawaiian style, while any payline wins are also greeted with appropriately upbeat sound effects. As an extra little Easter egg, the Tiki mask in the game’s logo is animated and will frequently contort its features over the course of the game, winking at players or grinning cheerfully when they land a win.

Feature Symbols

There are two main feature symbols in Hula Hula Nights for players to consider – the Tiki mask wild symbol and aforementioned coconut cocktail scatter. Whenever the former appears on the reels, it will substitute for any regular base game symbol if a winning combination is possible, while landing three, four or five of the latter icon will reward players with 10, 15 or even 25 Free Spins respectively.

Although not a symbol in its own right, there is another gameplay aspect that is worth mentioning in Hula Hula Nights – the green reels. These will randomly appear during both the base game and the Free Spins feature and should any green sections be in view at the end of your spin, they will all transform into a randomly chosen base game icon for an increased chance of landing winning paylines.

Bonus & Jackpots

Lets get to the most important part of our slot reviews – the bonus rounds. Given the presence of the green reels, it’s perhaps not a huge surprise that Hula Hula Nights’ top base game jackpot is a relatively small 250x players’ bet per line amount, though this can be boosted to 500x if players opt to play with Big Bet mode enabled. This feature allows players to purchase a set of five linked spins at stakes of £20, £30 or £50, with a number of exciting extras also coming into play.

First and foremost, while playing a set of Big Bet spins, the game’s total number of paylines will be increased to 20 and the height of the scatter symbol will be doubled to fill two spaces. In the £30 game, the Tiki mask will also substitute for the scatter to make triggering the bonus easier, while in the £50 game it will do all of this and substitute for the collect icon that appears during the Free Spins.

Players will notice that during Free Spins, rather than turning over to reveal symbols, the green reel spaces will all show cash prizes – and if a collect icon is visible, players will win every amount displayed.

While the graphics are fairly minimalistic, Hula Hula Nights remains a charming little game in its own right. A simple enough title when played like a conventional online video slot, the game really comes into its own while played with Big Bet mode enabled. Although this will cost players a little extra, the added pay lines and easy-trigger features will compensate by boosting the payout percentage to a huge 98%.
