Lights is a simple yet gorgeous pokie from NetEnt. This 5 reel 9 payline game is set in with lanterns and fireflies at dusk with a beautiful mountain in the background. While simple, Lights guarantees 2 floating wilds with every spin, meaning it’s easier to put together a winning payline.
How to Play
Lights has 9 paylines, which are active all the time. Start by setting your coin value, which ranges from $0.01 to $1. Then choose your levels – that’s the number of coins you would like to bet on each payline – which ranges from 1 to 10. This means your minimum bet starts at $0.09 per spin and if you go for the highest settings, it’s $90. So start slow with a smaller bet size until you get the feeling of this pokie. The Max Bet button will set you coin level to the maximum of 10, without adjusting your coin size. Once you’re comfortable, check out the Autoplay settings so you can sit back for a few spins and just wait for the wins to reel in. The symbols are as follows, starting from the highest value:
- Red Lantern
- Orange Lantern
- Green Lantern
- Blue Lantern
- Purple Lantern
- A, K, Q, J, and 10 are lower value symbols that can get you 3 coins to 100 coins
- Wild: the symbols says WILD on it
- Scatter: Yin-Yang symbol in red and gold
3 or more Scatters will get you free spins. Wilds can substitute for any symbol except for Scatter.
Graphics and Sounds
The pokie is set in a gorgeous, early evening landscape with a Chinese theme, with the reels as strings of hanging lanterns. The fireflies go all over the place with each spin, before it settles on 2 floating wilds, and each win will be illuminated with light trails across the screen. It’s beautiful, with a very relaxing piano sound track in the background.
Lights has a fixed jackpot of 1,500 coins, which can be won by spinning 5 Red Lanterns. Spinning 5 Orange Lanterns, the next highest value symbol, will get you 750 coins. We have to say that these aren’t particularly, but when coupled with the free spins, players can win up to 90,000 coins in this little pokie.
In its simple zen, Lights has few special features, but the two that it has will bring much pleasure: Floating Wilds Those fireflies hovering around the reels will trigger between 2 and 4 floating wilds randomly in the base game – on every single spin. That’s nothing to sneeze at! Free Spins Spinning 3 Scatter symbols will get you 10 free spins; 4 scatters will give you 20, and 5 scatters will get you 30. During free spins, between 3 to 6 floating wilds will appear on your reels. And again, this is on every single one of the spins!
If you’re looking for an adrenaline pumping video pokie, then Lights will not be your cup of tea. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a quiet, relaxed way to spend the evening while winning some money on the side, then Lights is the perfect go to. And while it’s a bit short on bonus features, Lights is buzzing with wilds and free spins. RTP is 96.1%, which puts the game in the medium variance slot range, so it might take a few moments before you start to win, but your patience will be rewarded.
