Paylines zigzagging across reels has been the standard format for online video slots since their inception. In order to provide something different to its players NetEnt created an innovative new structure that it called Cluster Pays. Three video slots based on this structure are live at online casinos like Kroon Casino and Oranje Casino. Cluster Pays video slot game is played in a grid consisting of 6 columns and 5 rows. Payouts are awarded for like symbols appearing in clusters instead of paylines. The symbols in a cluster have to be connected vertically or horizontally.

Aloha Cluster Pays with a Hawaiian theme was the first video slot with this structure. The high paying symbols are coloured wooden masks stacked two high. The low paying symbols are pineapple, coconut, shell and flower. Clusters of 9 or more symbols result in payouts. The Question Mark is the wild symbol. It transforms into one of the adjacent symbols that can create the biggest possible cluster. Aloha Cluster Pays has a Sticky Win Re-spins feature that may be randomly triggered after any win. The winning symbols are held fixed and the other symbols spin again. If the size of the cluster increases one more re-spin awarded. Payouts are made after the final re-spin. The bonus feature awards from 9 to 12 free spins with the low paying symbols removed from the reels.

In Emoji Planet Cluster Pays the symbols used are well-known emoji icons from social media. The minimum cluster size is five symbols. Every win results in an avalanche, a feature NetEnt introduced in its popular title Gonzo’s Quest. Winning symbols are replaced by new ones and this continues till no new winning combinations are formed. The slot game has a number of bonus features named after popular emoji. In the Pizza feature a 3x3 overlay of any symbol will appear on the reel. In the Kiss Mark feature three sticky wild symbols will randomly appear on the reels.

The Legend of Shangri-La has a theme based on the Himalayan paradise. Clusters of 9 or more like symbols result in payouts. The high symbols are leopard, elephant and monkey, which appear expanded over two rows. The low paying symbols are flower, butterfly, dragonfly and koi fish. The jade is the wild symbol. When the Random Substitutions feature is activated, wild symbols are added till a win is awarded. In the Stick Respins feature non-paying clusters are held fixed while the others spin again. There is free spins feature included as well.
