Lights Online Slots
Lights hold great significance in Asian culture, particularly so in Chinese culture. The Chinese lantern is recognised the world over, and started out as a mere practicality, being an alternative to the previously used open flame. Open flames were often extinguished by the wind and were also known to have started fires. The lantern was a welcome improvement – also providing a softer and more ambient form of light.
Lanterns and Lights soon evolved into elaborate cultural symbols. They not only provided a more attractive form of light, but also became symbols of artistic expression. Artists competed in order to create lanterns of superb and delicate beauty. Some historians are of the opinion that the street light as it is known in the Western word, originated from contact with China, where lanterns and lights had long been used to light entrance ways and doors to homes.
During the Chinese Lantern Festival, riddles are written on lanterns. The answer must then be guessed by passersby. This creates a festive and interactive spirit.
Lights is an online video slot in honour of the significance and beauty of Chinese lanterns and features 5 reels and 9 fixed paylines, as well as floating wilds and a Free Spins Bonus Game found at most River Belle Casinos.
Symbols That Light Up The Night Sky
Symbols include a selection of beautifully embellished Chinese lights. The red lantern is a true showcase of Chinese tradition, with Chinese dragons embossed into its surface. Landing 5 or more of the red lanterns on any payline is worth 1 000 credits. The orange lantern is in no way inferior to the beautiful red lantern. The light that emanates from the orange lantern is soft and comforting, and carries an award of up to 750 credits. Next in line is the emerald green lantern – 5 of these will add 500 credits to the player’s bankroll. The calming blue lantern follows closely at 400 credits for the same trick, and the passionate purple lantern rolls in at 300 credits for 5 in a row.
Playing card symbols appear on the reels too, and represent the lower value paying symbols. The playing card symbols are designed a typical Asian font, and appear to be lit up from the inside. Cards include the number 10 as well as the Jack, Queen, King and Ace – the Ace being the highest paying card symbol.
Lights Floating Wilds Feature
The Floating Wilds Feature is wonderfully animated. During every spin, Fireflies play on the reels, activating Floating Wilds. 2 to 4 Floating Wilds appear at random during every spin. Wilds will substitute for all standard symbols. The scatter symbol is the exception to the rule.
Lights Free Spins Bonus Game
The scatter symbol is the Yin-Yan symbol. Instead of the usual black and white, it is animated and drawn beautifully in orange, red and pink. The scatter is the key to activating the Free Spins Bonus Game. 3 scatters anywhere on the reels will activate 10 free spins, 4 will trigger 20 and 5 scatter symbols carry a reward of 30 free spins.
During the Free Spins Bonus game, up to 6 Floating Wilds appear at random during any one spin.
