Lights Slot Review
- Published For
Guaranteed wilds, anyone? How about two guaranteed wilds during every spin in the base game and up to 6 wilds during free spins? Then you should definitely play Lights! Fireflies float over the reels turning two random symbols into wilds. This is a rare 9 line slot, which makes it an “elite” slot if we may call it that way. It features outstanding, latest generation graphics and one soothing melody that will put you in a state of trance. All in all, Lights will leave you speechless. Now, let’s take a look at the details. Enjoy the Lights!
As we hinted earlier, this is an uncommon and rare to find 5x3 slot with 9 lines. The distinctive number of paylines makes it a high variance slot, but the presence of two guaranteed wilds during every spin turns it into a low variance one. Players can expect a striking 96.09% RTP in the long run. Due to the calming audio and mesmerizing graphics long play sessions will become your daily habit. Players can win up to 90,000 coins or in money terms, that’s $/€/£9,000 at max bet. Speaking of which, the minimum bet is a mere 0.09 and the maximum bet is 90.
All symbols fit perfectly in the theme. We really like how all of the high paying symbols are represented, while subtly being lights. It’s nothing too obvious, i.e. they’re not in your face. The two symbols that should be of your greatest interest are the guaranteed wilds, brought on the reels by floating fireflies and the animated Ying & Yang scatter symbol. Wilds increase your chances of winning, whereas the scatter grants you 10, 20 or 30 free spins, depending on how many scatters are on the screen.
The background of Lights, it’s stunning. Take a moment and just look at it for a while. Every element is animated, in motion. This just goes to show how much time and attention to detail NetEnt has invested into this work of art.
Hitting 3, 4 or 5 scatters give the player 10, 20 or 30 free spins. During our testing we managed to trigger the bonus feature numerous times. It’s not the case as in other slots where you can see the bonus feature only in the information section. With Lights, you actually benefit from free spins.
Furthermore, during free rounds, the cap of wilds that appear on the reels, brought by the fireflies, increases to 6. During every spin, there will be between 4 and 6 wild symbols. Imagine winning 30 free spins with so many wilds. Huge mega wins wait. However, landing 5 scatters is rather rare, but it doesn’t mean that it won’t happen to you.
In the end, it’s another high variance slot. The low number of paylines obviously affects the hit rate. Fortunately, NetEnt threw in an exciting bonus element, the fireflies wilds. If it weren’t for the guaranteed wilds, we would’ve already pointed the way to a different slot. Thumbs up for the video and the graphics!
