We love when developers create an interesting and engaging theme. It’s not mandatory, mind you, but it helps a lot with immersion. But sometimes, slots can get away with not having a theme. The view can be breath-taking enough on its own that you don’t need justification or a story behind it. And that’s exactly what this game accomplishes. It gives us a gorgeous sunset, a tranquil waterfall, and a whole lot of fireflies. A feast for both eyes and soul.
A relaxing piano piece plays while you spin the reels in hopes of that elusive win. Lights’ RTP is 96.1%, just slightly above the current average. Chase after the fireflies, and you might just catch a special feature or two! While playing, you’ll come across guaranteed, floating Wilds that change position each turn. You’ll also get a shot at winning free spins, too! Each spin has a chance to win a 1000x jackpot prize.
Despite being released in 2014, this is still one of the most stunning NetEnt slots we have the pleasure of playing. The artists have outdone themselves – we loved almost everything on offer. We thought only having two special features wouldn’t be enough, but we were pleasantly surprised. The constantly shifting Wilds means every spin has the potential to become amazing.
Hands down, Lights is still one of the best looking games on the market, despite its age. NetEnt can truly create wonderfully looking slots when they feel like it. Apart from the uninspired playing card royals, everything is serene and perfect. The background image, the animations, the gentle glow effect added to each symbol.
The gameplay and special features sealed the deal for us. This NetEnt release showed that you don’t need any bonuses to create an engaging and lucrative release. Just the right amount of math and a dash of gambling magic, and you’re good to go. Five years later, Lights is still as amazing as the first time we played it. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.
