Step into the Lights
Like always, we’ll start with the graphics. Lights is one of the more impressive games when it comes to its looks. The background represents a valley between two hills at sunset, with a stream in the foreground. The five reels are really stylish, with a ribbon dividing them. The symbols are done in the style of Chinese writing, in accordance with the theme, accompanied by several types of Chinese lamps, which are the main symbols in the game, and are worth the most points. There is a yin-yang symbol too, and this one serves as a Scatter symbol.
Once you spin the reels, you are seeking combinations of signs along 9 paylines. We must say, this is very few paylines, compared to other NetEnt games, but the game somehow manages to secure fair winnings to the players. This is mostly due to Floating Wilds, represented as fireflies that beset a symbol, usually on spins between 2 and 4. As per usual, the wilds serve as a stand-in for any symbol, except the Scatter symbol.
When it comes to Scatter, this is where things get really interesting. Scoring 3 to 5 scatter symbols will trigger free spins. 3 score you 10 spins, 4 scores 20 and 5 score 30. During these free spins, Floating Wilds appear in spins between 3 and 6, again substituting any symbol except the Scatter. It should also be noted that Scatters can appear during free spins too, granting additional free spins. Also, if you manage to score 4 red lanterns along any of the paylines, you will score a jackpot of 1000 coins.
Lastly, there is the interface. As usual, NetEnt sticks to the tried and true. The interface consists of all the regular buttons, including the spin button, max bet, and auto-play buttons, as well as buttons that let you adjust coin value level. In essence, everything is pretty standard, and you’ll feel right at home playing the game.
In the end, Lights is a great slot game that most players will enjoy. If is very visually appealing, but, more importantly, quite interesting to play, thanks to Floating Wilds and Scatters. In essence, NetEnt delivers something tried and true, but with slight variations to gameplay to keep things interesting.
