One of the great things about NetEnt is that they do the simple things exceptionally well; and no better is this evidenced than in Lights, a beautifully-designed five-reel, nine-payline slot machine. Featuring an Asian theme with coloured lanterns and yin yang symbols appearing on the reels, Lights is a game that will instantly make players feel at ease with its calming music and tranquil background setting. Despite this soothing ambience, however, the slot is capable of paying out some substantial returns thanks to the guaranteed presence of several firefly wilds on each and every base game spin.
As mentioned above, Lights features a loosely Asian theme, with a number of ornate paper lanterns decorating its reels. The game is set in front of a beautiful meadow just as dusk is falling and the stars are starting to come out, with running water and buzzing fireflies further adding to this already incredibly relaxing atmosphere. The background music is similarly soothing, with all winning paylines being greeted by shimmering sound effects and a golden line of light passing through the reels.
The fireflies buzzing around the reels in Lights aren’t merely there for show; at the start of each spin, they’ll descend on the gameboard to place overlay wilds on between two and four spaces. This will naturally improve players’ chances of creating winning paylines, but the feature becomes even more valuable during the game’s free spins. Activated whenever three or more yin yang symbols appear on the reels, players will be awarded 10-30 bonus games depending on how many triggering icons were used, with the fireflies now creating between three and six overlay wilds for even bigger wins.
As a relatively simple slot to play, it should come as no huge surprise that Lights is also a very simple title to bet on. Left and right arrows help players control both their bet level and their coin value, with the former ranging from 1-10 and the latter available for between £0.01 and £1.00. These two values are then multiplied together and put through the slot’s nine paylines to create a game that is playable for £0.09-£90.00 per spin, with a maximum line win of 1,000 up for grabs at all times.
For a visually striking title that feels more like a journey into Zen Buddhism than a conventional video slot, look no further than NetEnt’s Lights. Though a very simple game to get to grips with, the slot does the basic things incredible well and the presence of up to four overlay wilds on any base game spin means players will always have the opportunity to walk away with big payouts.
