The Cluster Slide is a multi-button slot machine that looks like a cluster of buttons arranged in a cluster on the machine’s lever. It looks like the buttons are arranged in a cluster, but they really are not – they are just buttons that light up. When you push one of the cluster buttons, it activates the machine and lets out a whirring noise to simulate the sound of a slot machine’s wheels. This whirring noise is used as the inspiration for the sound that the machine makes when it is spinning. This whirring noise is also what gives players the illusion that they are playing a real slot machine.
As you may guess from the name of the game, the Cluster Slide uses a cluster pays game system to generate winnings. Playing on a seven eight grid, winners can be made by landing several clusters of five or more matching symbols on the payline. After a successful cluster is formed, the symbols are eliminated and replaced with new ones.
Rather than dropping from above, however, the new symbols simply slide onto the center grid from the left. Because there is no real gaming of the machine, this form of gameplay is similar to what many other slot machines do – they just switch out one piece of the playing field for another. While this can make a cluster slot machine much harder to play than traditional slots, it does not necessarily mean that it is impossible – provided you have the right skills.
