Although NetEnt is one of the game suppliers which tend to release new games basically every fortnight their trusted players don’t have a tough time getting into them. This is due to the standard interface which allows players to understand the game inside out only after a few spins from the get go. Glow is one of the slots which are part of the latest batch of new slots. It portrays the mystic night sky over what seems to be North America. You can see graceful polar light in the background lighting the dark night sky. The background shifts and moves during bonus features which prolongs any boredom moments so to speak. In the background you can hear soothing sounds, like calming female vocal, sounds from wild animals which add to the whole wild environment setting.

Glow is a 5 spinning reel slot with 3 rows of symbols. It has a fixed number of paylines set at 15. By having a fixed number of paylines the hit frequency remains the same during all types of play. Some have argued that a fixed number of paylines makes some players hesitant to giving games of this kind a shot. The coin value is in the range of 0.01 and 1.00 and like with any other NetEnt game players can place between 1 and 10 coins per line. If we add up all the parameters the entry level bet is actually 0.15 and it can go as up as 150 per one single spin. Glow has an auto play feature, multipliers and a higher than average hit frequency. The RTP is approximately 96.70%.
On the most fundamental level Glow is just another addition to NetEnt’s arsenal of high quality games. We can’t put it on pedestal as we are all aware of NetEnt’s abilities. The background is the only element that makes this slot stands out. The Wild Symbol is represented with an animated mystic mask. It may resemble the common symbols, but you’ll know when the wild brought you a prize. This symbol not only increases your chances of winning, but also doubles the prize.
If you hit 2 or more matching symbols excluding the letter and the numbers the player is rewarded with a given number of free spins. The bet remains the same throughout the Free Spins as it was when you won the Free Spins. On top of this during Free Spins all wins are doubled. An interesting feature is that during Free Spins the background shifts and focuses on the sky taking the mountains in the background out of sight. Furthermore you can retrigger the feature and add few more free spins on top.
The lack of bonus games and outstanding bonus features makes Glow just another slot in the game library. In terms of graphics and audio effects it’s an easy 10, but in terms of content it’s nowhere near. However, the thing that makes this game attractive is the high hit frequency and the high chances of winning Free Spins. In simple words, it’s an easy to learn game that can be on the high rewarding end.
