Lights by NetEnt
Oriental video slot games may be one of the most popular categories in the world but it is one area where NetEnt rarely dips their toe in. If you’re a fan of some of the most popular games in the genre, such as Aristocrat’s Choy Sun Doa, then the opportunity to play something similar is always a welcome one and with NetEnt behind it, Lights always had a very real chance of being something truly spectacular. It certainly looks the part, with a variety of lanterns punctuating the board, but, as is often the case, aside from the scatter symbol the bonus features are where the real excitement lies.
Floating Wilds in the Base Game
The first of these features is tacked on to the main game board and while we mentioned wild cards in the introduction, it will quickly come to your attention that there aren’t actually any wilds on the board. This is because they only come into play as part of this feature. The good news is that they will appear on each and every spin and they’re tied into the fireflies. These creatures float around while the reels spin and will deposit between two and four wilds onto random positions before the symbols come to a halt.
Free Spins on Lights
One symbol that is present on the standard board is the scatter, represented by the Yin Yang symbol. Three, four or five in view are good for ten, twenty or thirty free spins respectively and they’ll start and play out automatically. You wouldn’t expect the fireflies to leave the board during the bonus and fortunately they continue to make an impact – an even bigger one than the base game to be precise. Specifically, between three and six wild cards will be added to the board prior to the completion of each and every free game, so there’s plenty of winning potential.
While we noted that Lights is particularly suitable for existing fans of the Oriental theme, they’re not the only players that are in for a treat on the game as the bonus round and added wilds are a must for absolutely any player. It’s a gaming experience like no other and you can see exactly why that’s the case by playing the full game at the top of this review for free!
