Lights Slot Game
Lights is an Asian themed slot, joining a long list of other games based around the Far East. However, this game has an original, distinct air, as the symbols on the reels are a series of colored lanterns, each with a different shape and a color.
The gameplay is unique in the fact that you’ll find a series of floating wilds on every spin.
The main feature of this game in a free spins bonus round, where you’ll find the floating wilds become more numerous. All of this is set against a beautiful mountain scene, while a perfect gentle Oriental style soundtrack meanders along.
How to Win on Lights
Like many of the NetEnt range, Lights has five reels and pays from left to right. The highest paying symbols are the five lamps, the red colored lamp with the dragon design having the highest payout of 1000 coins (this coming your way for five in a row, although lower payouts are also achieved when hitting 3 or 4 in a row). A round shaped orange lamp has a top payout of 750 coins, while a square shaped green lamp pays 500 coins. The final two lamps are a cube shaped light blue lamp and a medicine bottle shaped purple lamp, these with top payouts of 400 and 300 coins respectively.
The standard symbols are completed by the playing cards 10, J, Q, K and A, each of this with an outline color that matches the color of the lamps.
The vast majority of online slots feature a wild symbol as one that appears alongside the other symbols on the reels. This NetEnt designed slot takes a very different approach. Here, as the reels are spinning you’ll see groups of fireflies spinning around which will eventually come to rest on the reels, leaving a floating wild in their wake. These floating wilds sit above a standard symbol and substitute for any other symbol on the reels apart from the scatter. You’ll have between 2 and 4 floating wilds appear on each and every spin, the biggest wins potentially paying out when you land 4 of these wilds.
Lights Slot Free Spins Bonus Round
The bonus symbol is a Yin and Yang style one, this gold colored symbol with balls of light moving around inside it. To activate the free spins round you’ll need to land at least three scatters which will see you awarded with 10 free spins. However, if you manage to activate the feature with 4 or 5 of these scatters, you’ll be looking at 20 or 30 free spins respectively.
During these free spins you’ll find an additional number of floating wilds covering the reels, with between 3 and 6 at every spin. With more of these wilds your average win amount will be much higher at these spins, especially when you find the maximum 6 wilds over the reels.
Fireflies and Mountains – Design of the Lights Slot
Whenever you load a NetEnt designed game you are almost certainly assured of high quality visuals and Lights certainly delivers that. The reels are transparent, meaning that the beautiful backdrop is in view at all times, with mountains in the distance and trees in the foreground, all set against a sunset sky. The lanterns on the reels glow at all times, while the fireflies continue to buzz around the wild symbols, all illuminating the slot. Whenever you land a win you’ll find the symbols rotating through 360 degrees, which looks highly effective whether it’s the lamp or one of the playing card symbols, while a line of fireflies moves from side to side of the slot representing the win line. The gentle accompanying sound track is just perfect, so you’ll have no need at all to reach for that mute button.
9 Line Setup
Lights is a little unusual in the fact that there are just 9 win lines, but this is sure to appeal to those players who like to enjoy more spins for their money. When playing these 9 win lines you can change both the coin value (ranging from 1c through to $1) and the bet level (ranging from 1 through to 10). Aside from the mute button other options include the auto play, quick spin, turning the animation on and off and playing with the sharpness of the graphics.
Lights is a slot which might just be ideal for those who want a break from their busy schedules and simply want to sit back and relax. The combination of the soothing sound and the beautiful graphics gives the game an ambient and relaxing feel. However, it’s not just the relaxing aspect that appeals, as the floating wilds make for a game where the payouts can potentially become huge.
