WMS Hula Hula Nights Video Slot Review

Take a virtual trip to beautiful Polynesia in Hula Hula Nights, a 5 reel, 10 payline video slot from WMS and Red7. Look out for the special green reels that transform symbols in the base game and award cash prizes of up to £50 in the free spins round. Play on your desktop, tablet or mobile devices from between 10p and £500 per spin.

WMS aren’t among the leading developers when it comes to design and Hula Hula Nights feels a little primitive as far as visuals go – it’s perfectly acceptable but lacking in flair. You’ll see carved playing card symbols spinning around the reels alongside purple, red and yellow flowers and a pair of women. The best of these awards 25 times your total stake if you land a 5-of-a-kind combination. There’s also a wild. So far, so standard.

Where things get a little different is with the green overlays. These can fill whole reels and trigger the Green Reels feature. All symbols within a green overlay on the same spin all transform into the same matching standard symbol in the base game.

Land 3, 4 or 5 scatters on the same spin and your reward will be the Free Spin Bonus feature where you’ll receive 10, 15 or 25 free spins. You’ll see the green overlays in the feature too – they offer something a little different though. Land a collect and the symbols within the green overlays award an instant cash prize which ranges from £1 right up to £25. Land 3 or more collects on the same spin and you’ll re-trigger another round of free spins.

Hula Hula Nights gives you the chance to up your stakes and play in Big Bet Mode. This series of 5 linked spins comes with extra features depending on which level you play. At £20, £30 or £50 levels, you’ll get an assortment of an expanded 20 payline game engine, 2-high scatters, wilds that replace scatters and wilds replacing collects during the feature. Payouts are doubled in Big Bet Mode too.

Like many WMS video slots, you’d be hard pressed to call Hula Hula Nights a thing of beauty. The design is a little underwhelming but the features offer something a little different from the norm. The overlays deliver some potentially exciting action in both the base game and free spins round which makes it worth saying aloha to this Hawaiian adventure. I also recommend the volatile Flame Dancer from Novomatic which is superb.
