Island Eyes Slots Machine
Island Eyes is a slot based upon a remote desert island where the only inhabitants seemed to be wild animals such as a tiger or an eagle. However, one day two human children were washed up on the shore, a young male and a female.
Much like the film ‘The Blue Lagoon’, both of the characters grew up to be somewhat good looking. The female character here looks out from the reels with her blue sultry eyes. The man looks a little windswept, with long dark flowing hair, although he does look like he is ready to jump straight into a ‘Chippendales’ show
Island Eyes Gameplay
Island Eyes is a five reel slot with 40 pay lines. These 40 lines are set as the default amount, although you can choose to play 30, 20, 10 or even a single line. The bet per line starts at just 1c and goes all the way through to $10, making for a slot which can be played by anyone, as the total stakes for a spin go from just 1c up to a maximum of $400.
Like many of the High 5 Range of games, you’ll find Super Stacks as the major feature of the game. This sees one particular symbol chosen at random at the beginning of each spin and this symbol will now fill the majority of the reels – this symbol could be any at the game, including the wild or the scatter. This super stacks system will see winning spins where you’ll potentially have a great number of wins across many of the 40 pay lines.
The one symbol you’ll want to see ‘super stacked’ is the wild, which will substitute for any other symbol apart from the scatter. This symbol is represented by the title of the slot and has a top payout of 1,000 coins when hitting the maximum five in a row, wins coming here when you land consecutive symbols from left to right on a pay line. The other payouts can seem a little low, with 50, 40, 30 and 20 coins being the top payouts for the female, male, the tiger and the eagle respectively, although with those large multiple wins, you won’t be left out of pocket. The playing card letters and numbers from 10 to Ace complete the standard symbols on the reels.
Options at the slot include a very useful auto play button which will enable you to enjoy 5, 10, 15, 20 or 25 spins without any interruption, a mute button to toggle the sound on and off and an instant replay button. This instant replay option is a feature of all of the High 5 Games range and allows you to watch that big win again and again.
The game is easy on the eye, but in comparison to some slots, the graphics are a little lacking in places. The main character symbols look OK, but there is a noticeable lack of animation at the game, while the playing card symbols can dominate the reels at times. The accompanying soundtrack is a little ordinary too, with mostly generic sounds joining each spin.
Island Eyes Feature
The feature is activated by landing the scatter symbol so that it covers reels 2, 3 and 4 completely (this will only happen when the scatter is chosen as the Super Stacked symbol). This scatter looks like a small bronze shield and if it does fill those reels you’ll find yourself with 7 free spins. Having landed the feature you’ll pick one of the scatters which will reveal the female, the male, the tiger or the eagle and these will be the super stacked symbol throughout the feature. Each of the free spins is potentially more profitable as the super stacked symbols are now only the higher paying ones, although it would be nice if the wild was an option here.
Island Eyes Conclusion
While it might sound idyllic living on a remote desert island, after a day or two you’d start missing the home comforts and this ‘paradise’ would soon become anything but. Unfortunately, you could say the same thing about this slot, as the initial appeal of the super stacks will soon fade – the ordinary graphics and sound and the single feature seeing you head back to the casino lobby to find another game. Nevertheless, in the short term, this game might appeal to those who enjoy the opportunity of a spin where the majority of, or even all of the pay lines are winning ones.
