Lights Online Slot Review
Released in 2014, this 5x3 slot machine from NetEnt is one of many oriental themed games that you can find from the developer. Unlike most slots games with the same theme however, Lights uses the many different kinds of lanterns and lights that can be found all across the Orient in the game. The game uses the lamps and the theme itself in many unique ways – from the highlighting of the winning pattern to the display of Wilds to the symbols on the reels.
The game’s background music is oriental in nature but not in the traditional sense. Instead of the usual twang of xylophones and gongs, you hear a piano in the background with crickets chirping as you play. The design in the back of the transparent machine shows rolling hills and rocky mountains with huge acacia trees and waterfalls in the foreground to complete the tranquil picture.
Controls on this machine are what you can expect to find on any NetEnt 5-reel machine. Spin button is in the middle of the control panel at the bottom while bet adjustment options are located on both sides of this button. Maximum bet for this game is at €90.00 and minimum bet per spin is at €.09. Auto play lets you spin the reels for a set number of times while Max Bet lets you set the maximum bet for each spin in one click.
Lights is a slot machine that uses different kinds of lights and lanterns as the symbols on the reels. These include a red dragon lantern, orange round lantern, green rectangular lantern, blue scrolled lantern, and purple teardrop lantern. Low-denomination symbols are the usual card numbers from 10 to Ace.
One unique symbol you will see in this game is the Floating Wild, which is basically a swarm of fireflies that fly around on the screen and settles on any of the spots on the reels when they convert into the word Wild on it. The Scatter symbol on this game is a lantern shaped like the YinYang symbol.
The bonus round of this game comes in the form of a free spins round that is launched when three or more of the scatter symbol emerges on the reels. The more scatter symbols you get, the more free spins are awarded to you.
Aside from giving you free spins, when this feature is launched, you get between 3 and 6 floating wilds on the reels to help increase your chances of winning. These appear randomly on the screen and can land anywhere. You can also increase the number of free spins you get in these games when scatter symbols appear on your reels during this bonus game.
