Are you ready for a party of a lifetime? If so, there’s only one VIP destination worth considering. Forget everything else you’ve might have heard. Because there’s only one place with the best music, the finest drinks, and a guaranteed fun time.
It’s Ibiza! Or, more specifically, Arrow’s Edge version of the popular destination. So while you spin and party the night away, you have at winning one of the two progressive jackpots.
The slot does not have many cool animations, but it does good work with what it has available. You see a gorgeous sunset, several palm trees, and a beach reserved just for you! A wide selection of drinks awaits your hands, and you can see the lavish pub in the distance. It’s the peak of luxury, available at your fingertips whenever you want it!
We really cannot say the graphics are great in this game. That said, it has an upbeat atmosphere that’s somewhat infectious. If you like EDM, the track they have looping will make your legs bounce back and forth as you play. Human characters have some fluid animations that look cool. However, they also emphasize the lack of movement when other symbols are part of a win.
The layout follows the same pattern as previous Arrow’s Edge releases. On desktop, everything is centered beneath the reels. It makes it quite easy to navigate, and you are never more than two clicks away from what you need. Changes between the desktop and mobile versions are minor, at best. Some of the UI has been rearranged to better fit touch-screen devices, but that is as far as it goes. Visuals, gameplay and the paytable remain untouched.
We were unable to find any information on Ibiza’s volatility. With its two progressive jackpots, it leans heavily into high variance. The slot is not shy about making you grind your teeth out of frustration at times. But like moths to a flame, we keep coming back, thanks to the promise of a thrilling maximum win.
The game alternates between a 5×3 playing field with 12 paylines, or a 3×3 board with 3 winlines. In both cases, the number of paylines are fixed. That means players cannot choose to turn some or all winlines on or off to lower their minimum bet.
Unfortunately, Arrow’s Edge release does not offer any information about its RTP. As a result, we cannot openly recommend playing the slot. After all, without knowing the house edge, you could be walking into a proverbial death-trap. Of course, if you want to play it regardless, we will not stop you. Just understand you’re sailing in uncharted waters.
Changing your total bet is as simple as clicking on the arrows next to the box labelled total bet. Here, you can set your wager between $0.24 up to $240 per spin. Considering they only make 12 paylines available, that means gamblers are paying double the standard price. It will not bother high rollers and mid-range players, but casual gamblers will feel the sting on their wallets.
The Autoplay option is quite basic, and this is shared across other games made by the same developer. You can only set the number of auto spins you will play. There is no way to set a win or loss limit, which is something that has become baseline for other software providers.
To win in this slot, you have to collect three or more identical icons in consecutive positions. All winning combinations must start with the leftmost reel, and have to follow one of the active paylines. There are some symbols that are an exception to this rule. A bottle of champagne on ice, a dancing girl, the DJ and the Wilds all grant pays with only two icons.
Coincidentally, these are also the most valuable symbols available to players. They are followed up by a pair of headphones, a lavish yacht, a pair of palm trees, and four playing card royals. Credit where it’s due, you can tell Arrow’s Edge tried to make them look good.
Special Feature Party
When the Party Guy or Party Girl Wilds appear on the playing field, they expand in different ways.
The guy expands vertically. Depending on the position he lands, he will create more Wilds in different position. You also get up to six re-spins under the right circumstances! There are multiple combinations for the Wilds, so we will not go over them in detail here. Instead, we will let you discover them all on your own!
Meanwhile, the party girl Wild expands horizontally. She only appears on the second and fourth reel, and covers it up entirely when she does expand. Once again, you have a shot at getting up to 6 re-spins with frozen Wild symbols.
After each expanding Wild special feature ends, gamblers get three free spins on a 3×3 board. While the playing field and the number of winlines is lower, all prizes are multiplied by 4x!
Collect two party girl symbols in the main game to win the Bonus Round special feature. You choose one of two disks, and spin them for cash prizes. Each disk has five rings that can reveal a cash prize or a Collect icon. Once Collect appears, you are awarded all your winnings and the bonus ends.
If the disk stops spinning in the free spins ring, the bar at the bottom of the screen fills up slightly. Once it is completely filled, a free spins round is unlocked. Any additional free spins won during the special feature are added to the total number of extra turns that will be played. Another way you can trigger free spins is to collect three DJ Scatters.
No matter what way you activate it, you get to enjoy ten free spins. After the bonus ends, you play three free spins on the 5×3 board. You get your paylines back, but you no longer benefit from the 4x multiplier.
There are also two progressive jackpots happily ticking away and just waiting for you to claim them. They are called the Cash Grab and Super Slots jackpots, respectively. They are triggered completely at random, but cannot fire during free spins.
Pros & Cons
It may not be the slot made for the people that are a little more mindful of their bankrolls, but for those that are not concerned with such trivial things just may find the party of the ages over at Ibiza!
