Luminous Life Slot
- A deep-sea theme that’s simple but effective
- Respins work well and free spins can be quite rewarding
- Grand Prize on offer for some big rewards
Luminous Life slot is a new game from Playtech that I wanted to review because it seems to get a lot of things right despite looking like a relatively simple game. You have all the popular features like free spins, respins with sticky Wilds and a chance to win a big Grand Prize, so let’s take a closer look at just how well it works.
Firstly, let’s start with the design and overall appearance. Luminous Life slot is a game with a deep oceantheme, full of wonderful fish that you might have seen on shows like Blue Planet. The backdrop is fairly simple and mainly just a couple of shades of blue, but I suppose that’s a fairly accurate portrayal of what it’s like that far below the surface. It’s nothing special, but I can’t complain either. Your goal is to spin the reels to try and get a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols, getting either a cash prize or maybe triggering a feature which I’ll discuss shortly. The base symbols are listed as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- Small fish of a kind (lowest value)
- Medium Fish of a kind
- Large fish of a kind
- Tentacle Fish
- Giant Fish
- Angler Fish
- Wild (highest value)
Luminous Life Slot Bonuses and Features
The Wild symbol, shown simply as a large W, substitutes for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the Scatter symbol. Furthermore, it is the highest value symbol in the game but only in a combination of 5 and pay nothing for less than 5.
Luminous Respin Feature. This is a feature that occurs on any winning spin and is similar to features that we have seen on quite a few other slots. All the symbols that formed part of a winning combination will be frozen in place and all other symbols will respin. If a combination is improved thanks to the respin, the new combination will freeze and another respin will occur. What’s slightly different here is that the Scatter symbol also takes part in the feature to make things a bit more interesting.
Free Spins Bonus. The Scatter symbol in the game is used to trigger the Free Spins Bonus (no surprises here), with 3 or more need to win 5 free spins. That might not sound like many, but the Luminous Respin Feature is also in play during the free spins, and all Scatter symbols turn into Wild symbols throughout the Bonus. Furthermore, the more Scatter symbols that trigger that Bonus leads to more Wild symbols during the Bonus itself, hopefully generating some more wins.
Luminous Grand Prize. Playtech have added something a little more unusual to this game and it involves winning a big payout. If you manage to fill the entire screen with Scatter symbols, so 15 in total, you’ll be awarded the grand prize for a huge reward. Now, you’re probably thinking that that will never happen and yes, the odds are very slim, but it’s still something and if it does happen while you’re playing you’ll be thankful it’s part of the game.
Luminous Life slot from Playtech isn’t going to be the more popular slot in the world, in fact, many of you might never come across it. For the most part it’s pretty basic in terms of its design and features but actually, it gets a lot right and is a good choice for those of you looking for something simple that can also pay out fairly well. The respin feature works well, the Free Spins Bonus isn’t the best but can certainly offer you a good payout and triggers reasonably often and finally, you have a chance to win big with the Grand Prize. So really, this game has covered all the important aspects of a good slot and that’s why I think it’s worth checking out. Leave a comment down below and let us know what you think.
