Personal testers opinion

I like machines with fewer lines. There you can win more, risk lesser. In this slot, the potential of winning is higher. We suggest players use smaller stakes here and have money on more spins. Lights slot has scored less than 5 points in the wagering rating. The probability of triggering "the free spins feature" is 0.65% (every 154th spin).

The frequency of hitting any win is equal to 28.86%. During the real money tests, my biggest win was 265x. There was an impression that the machine "likes" the €10 stakes. The indirect sign of the slots "mood" is how many wild symbols are generated and their position during the free spins feature. Please note, that with the increasing bets level behaviour of the slot can be completely different. 

Review and recommendations from the testing team

At first sight, and judging by the graphics, this is a fairly standard slot, a typical one from this provider, but after the first spin, the slot issued a wild symbol.

  • In this slot, the symbols are given out in a line, which, together with the wild symbols, can give a fairly big win. Considering that all this happens in every spin in the main game, the slot has the potential to give a huge winning.
  • Despite this, the slot for some reason is not very popular with players.
  • Payouts for winning combinations of three or four symbols are quite small in this slot, but big for combinations of five top symbols. This is the case in many other slots of this provider.
  • Quite often the Wild symbols fall exactly on the necessary positions, bringing big winnings.
  • Triggering the free spins feature occurs here more often, in contrast to other slots, there are no large intervals.
  • In the feature, there are a higher number of wild symbols falling on the reels. During testing, a bonus was triggered in the first 50-70 spins, and two full lines of wild symbols were issued on the first free spin, which brought a super big winning. They were also game sessions, where the slot gave out a full screen of top symbols.

In sum, this pokie is recommended mostly for real money, and not so much with bonus but still, if it is in "Hot mood" you can try to wager the requirements. It is also recommended to have a bet balance of at least 150-200 bets.

Netent declares the following probabilities

  • The total RTP (return to player percentage) in Lights slot is 96.1%. Of these, 71.7% during usual spins and 24.4% during the bonus free spins feature.
  • The probability of getting any winning is 29.3%.
  • The probability to get 3+ scatters and triggering the bonus free spins feature is 0.54%.
  • The maximum winnings are 90,000 coins.

Hidden parameters and settings of the slot (data from testing)

  • The frequency of triggering the bonus is statistically every 154th spin (0,65%). This number is in the middle line.
  • The probability of a hit (any winning) is 28,86%. Here players will get winnings rarely. 
  • The distribution of the winnings is 64% in the main game and 36% in the bonus. Note, that this number differs a lot from Netent's official figures. 
  • The maximum payout during the tests was 265x. This is the average number for an online slot with a 7,41 volatility rating. 
  • The average winning from the bonus was 76x. The bonus feature gives more money than usual. Maybe that is the reason for the low maximum winning. 
  • Volatility is 7,41 out of 20 (average). This number shows that Lights slot should have a high potential of winning. There is a reason to use the progressive betting system and to increase stakes in losing waves. 
  • Cycle length is from average to long.
  • The rating for the wagering is 4,56 out of 10.
  • RTP of 96.1% allows getting a positive mathematical expectation of winning at the casino.

The free spins feature

If there are three scatters dropping on the field, the free spins feature with an increased number of generated Wild will start. The location of the scatter does not matter.

  • If you catch 3 scatters, you get ten free spins.
  • Over the 4 you will get 20 spins.
  • If you are lucky enough to catch 5, then 30 free spins will launch.
  • During all free spins, you will receive an increased number of generated wilds in the field (up to 6).


  • Provider — NetEnt.
  • Payment lines — 9 (fixed).
  • Volatility — average.
  • Range of bets — 0.9-90 coins.
  • Playing field — 5х3.
  • The maximum winning is 90 000 coins (Red Vase symbol).
  • Bonuses — free spins from the Yin Yang symbol.
  • RTP - 96.1%.

How to win at Lights slot? (conclusion)

Like any other NetEnt game, our hottest recommendations are to test it in a demo mode before you start playing real money (to understand if it's hot or cold). Keep in mind that it is not a very popular machine and will often be "cold" with an empty prize pool. However, there is great potential, and if you "catch" it in a "positive mood", it can bring you pretty good winnings. Your primary goal must be to activate free spins, there is the greatest potential of the machine. Try bets that are multiples of 10 (and especially € 10).

A good strategy - in the bonus, watch where and how many "Wild" symbols are dropped, if it's "hot" you will definitely understand. Know that when changing the bet (maybe) you can change your "behaviour", this strategy will be useful to you if you are in a negative series of spins. For the bonus "hunters", we can give more negative recommendations than positive, but it's definitely not the worst for scoring bonus money. However, the comments are neutral to us. We wish you luck !!!
