Lights Slot Review (Netent)

Simplicity is the name of the game with the Lights slot machine. Despite being on the older side of things, this is still one of our favourite slot machines to come from the top name in the world of online casino games, and we are confident that it is going to be one of yours too.

Lights Slot Overview

How to Play Lights Slot

The Lights slot machine was created by NetEnt. It offers 5 reels and 9 paylines. The minimum bet per spin is 9p. The maximum bet per spin is £90. It is a medium variance slot machine, with the maximum amount you can win, albeit very rarely, being in the region of £90,000!

The theme of the game seems to be Asian floating lights. Hence the name, Lights. While it is not the craziest theme in the world, it certainly looks visually appealing.

Sometimes when you are playing slot machines for an exceedingly long time, you want something that is a little bit ‘back to basics’, and that is certainly what Lights offers.

If you are looking for a game that is going to boast gorgeous graphics after gorgeous graphics, then you are probably going to want to look elsewhere. If you are looking for a game which mainly focuses on gameplay, then this is the one for you.

Since this is a NetEnt slot machine, you should not really expect anything too intense when it comes to the complexity of the game. Most of the NetEnt slots out there, including this one, seem to be for those who are new to the world of slots and want something that is more of a ‘gateway’ to the hobby.

In this regard, we feel that the slot machine hits all the right spots. If you do want something complicated, then look elsewhere. If you want something that is going to be fun, yet still offer you a few wins here and there, then this is the game for you.

Bonus Rounds & In-Game Features

Lights' Wilds: One of the more intriguing features to be found in the Lights slot machine is the use of Floating Wilds. On each spin, a few fireflies will fly in and turn some of the symbols into wilds. There will be a minimum of 2, and a maximum of 4. If anything, this is something which looks visually appealing. Of course, as with other games, the wilds can act as a replacement for any other symbol in the game, which is rather nifty.

Scatters: If you get 3 or more scatters, then you will enter the free spins mode. 3 scatters will give you 10 free spins. 4 will give you 20 free spins. 5 will award you with 30 free spins. Of course, throughout this mode, the floating wilds are still going to come into play. However, the difference is that there will now be more of them. The minimum number that can appear is 3. The maximum number that can appear is 6. There is no multiplier in place but, to be honest, this is fine. The fact that you are guaranteed to get wilds on every spin will more than makeup for that fact.

Lights Mobile Slot Machine

The Lights mobile slot machine is fantastic. We are acting like we are surprised here but really are not. This is a NetEnt slot machine. This means that you can expect it to be great. As we mentioned before, we really love the theme of the game, and the Lights slot machine really shines when it is shrunk down into a mobile format. The colours are bright. The gameplay is smooth. Could you really ask for me? Well, probably. But this is good enough!

Summary – What Do We Think?

As we mentioned at the start; the Lights slot machine is very much a slot machine that has been designed for newcomers to the world of slots. There is not a lot going on feature-wise. However, we must say that we are massive fans of the way in which NetEnt have managed to make the floating wilds and the free spins feature mesh so well together. The floating wilds particularly surprised us. We didn’t even care that the free spins did not trigger all that much, the floating wilds made up for that. A+ game.
