Thousand Islands is a simple retro pokie from Microgaming, but one that has a more polished aesthetic than what you might be used to. Thousand Islands is a silky smooth game that is available on Spin Palace, where you can also find a huge welcome bonus and one of the most generous loyalty schemes around.
Thousand Islands has a gold glint to it and although simple, the aesthetic looks fantastic. The symbols are mostly retro, with everything from cherries and bars, to 7s.
The payline info takes up most of the game screen, as is so often the case with Microgaming retro pokies, and as you can see from this, the highest payout is 1,600x. The second highest is only 200x though, so basically all symbols besides the Thousand Islands logo need to be avoided. The logo also acts as a wild, so even when this lands in other paylines you can still boost your wins.
You can bet either 1 or 2 coins per spin on Thousand Islands, and which one you choose will determine how much you can win. The minimum bet on Thousand Islands is just $0.25, whilst the maximum is only $10.
Thousand Islands does not have any bonus rounds to speak of, and there is no scatter symbol either. There is a wild symbol, as mentioned above, but this will not be enough to entice the majority of players.
Thousand Islands is a retro game, make no mistake about it. It will have a very limited audience, namely those who prefer to have things quick and to keep the symbol count small, and don’t mind about the lack of bonus features. For us, however, these omissions are too much and Thousand Islands is not a game we will return to.
