Scandinavian-based slot developer NetEnt have made a fine job of giving their new slot releases maximum exposure, and there was certainly plenty of 'illumination' given to Lights when it arrived on the scene.
Lights is a 5-reel, 9-payline online slot that has an Oriental feel to it with Chinese lanterns everywhere. 9 paylines might feel like a bit of a low-key affair compared to other NetEnt slots but given that the developer released the 15-payline and incredibly addictive Aliens slot prior to this, it shows you don't need lots of paylines to make a successful slot.
In fact, Lights can be played for as little as 9p per spin or a top whack of £90 so all budgets are catered for.
On this slot the reels are set against a backdrop of a serene Oriental landscape at twilight. The symbols are quite beautiful. There are the 10-to-Ace symbols that are lined with a pretty tinge and then there are the various other stunning light symbols. There is the potential to win up to 90,000 coins on this slot so the reels are not the only attractive aspect about this slot.
The most unique feature on this slot is the Floating Wilds. On each spin, you will see fireflies buzz around the reels and they will turn random symbols into these Floating Wilds.
You will have at least two symbols become Floating Wilds on each spin with a maximum of four symbols turning into Floating Wilds. This obviously means there’s a lot of potential to hit big wins with these symbols.
The Floating Wilds also play a key role in the free spins bonus round. This free spins feature is triggered when you hit three or more of the Ying and Yang Scatters across the reels.
You can win up to 30 free spins if you trigger the bonus round with five Scatters. On the free spins, the number of Floating Wilds that will appear with help of the fireflies increases to a minimum of three with a maximum of up to six Floating Wilds appearing on the reels. It is also possible to re-trigger the free spins bonus round.
I have to admit, the Floating Wilds feature is a great little idea from NetEnt. It ensures that there is the potential for action on every spin and it keeps you aware.
I kind of feel like this slot has the same vibe to it that NetEnt’s Elements – The Awakening slot has with the music and atmosphere. It might technically be an Oriental themed slot but it certainly feels slightly more celestial than anything. Not a bad release from NetEnt at all.
