Lights is a stunningly designed slot by the team at NetEnt, based loosely around the beautiful lanterns used in the far east. It has two fantastic features, a relaxing backing track and almost ethereal feel to the whole game. So, if playing slots and chilling out is your thing, then Lights is definitely one for you.
Lights is a 5-reel, 9 fixed pay line slot that offers players a very tranquil setting and an RTP of 96.10%. It is set against a mountain and river scene which adds to the relaxed atmosphere. There are even bird sounds added into the music, to give that feeling of being in nature.
Your reels spin transparently above the scenery behind and the symbols have been designed in keeping with the theme. Symbols include exquisitely designed lanterns and of course card symbols which are a norm for most slots. Higher values begin with a red lantern and flow down to the orange, green, blue and purple lanterns. Each one having been drawn with intricate design work on them. Lower values are the A, K, Q, J and 10 card symbols and they have been given an oriental look to the font.
Bet Amounts – Betting on Lights begins at just 9p per spin and can be increased up to £90 per spin. In order to change your bet amount, you will need to adjust the coin level and the coin value found on either side of the spin button. Use the plus or minus symbols to change each one until you reach your desired bet amount and then just hit spin!
Wild Symbol – Your wild symbol in Lights is simply the word ‘wild’, which again is a glowing design made to stand out. It forms part of the floating wild feature which we will explain below. The wild can land on any reel and will substitute for all other symbols except the scatter.
Scatter Symbols – A yin/yang peace sign is your scatter symbol in Lights and it can land on any reel. It is slightly animated too in that it has glowing orbs floating around the inside of it. Land yourself three or more of the scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, to trigger the bonus spins feature.
Floating Wilds Feature – Wilds work differently here in the Lights slot game. Instead of a wild symbol landing when the other symbols do, you will see fireflies floating across the reels on every spin. Once they land, they will turn into wild symbols and will award from 2 to 4 wilds on every single spin! But it doesn’t stop there, the great news is of course that you are guaranteed a minimum of 2 wild symbols on each and every spin that you play!
Bonus Spins Feature – If the floating wilds weren’t enough to get you playing, maybe the bonus spins feature will. Land three or more of the peace scatter symbol to trigger this round. You will then be allocated spins based on the number of scatters that triggered the feature.
- 3 scatter symbols will award 10 bonus spins,
- 4 scatter symbols will award 20 bonus spins,
- 5 scatter symbols will award 30 bonus spins.
Once you are in the bonus spins, the floating wilds feature is increased. So now you can receive from x3 to x6 wilds on the reels at any one time. You can be awarded more spins by landing more scatter symbols too, which will extend your bonus round each time you land 3 or more.
Are you feeling relaxed yet, we know we are and rightly so? Although the wins are fast paced, the whole theme to Lights just envelops you in a sense of calmness and tranquillity. There is a lot going on with the floating wilds on each spin and then of course those bonus spins too! Speaking of the bonus spins, it can be quite time-consuming triggering the bonus spins round. But once you do, the win potential there is much higher than in the base game. Mainly because you have more guaranteed wilds landing on each and every spin of the bonus round. Don’t be too disheartened by this though, as the main game wins land often enough thanks to those floating wilds.
