Illuminous from Quickspin: Slot Review - a beautiful game to light up your day

The first thing that grabs your attention when playing Illuminous is what a visual feast it is on the eyes! The colours are very neon-style and a bit of a nod to the Tron movies.

Illuminous is a 5 reel slot game with 20 paylines but it has some neat features that will keep you spinning those reels again and again.

Special Features

The first cool feature I encountered while playing this game was that there are in fact two Wild symbols. The first Wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols which are pretty standard but the second Wild symbol is the Bonus Wild Scatter. If you happen to find two Bonus Wild Scatters on any of the reels then the Hot Reel Respin will automatically trigger. While the reels are respinning, Bonus Wild Scatters will turn into Hot Reels and some extra Wilds will be added into the mix. If you find another Bonus Wild during the respin then you will collect another so try to gather as many Bonus Wilds as you can while playing.

Another nice feature that this game has is the Hot Reel Free Spins feature. This is triggered when you get 3 or more Bonus Wild Symbols and it awards you with 5 free spins. While in free spin mode, the Bonus Wild Symbols will gain Hot Reels status and this enables lots of extra Wild Symbols to show up on the reels. I did enjoy this feature and the fact that if you go on a good run, you can trigger additional respins in the free spin mode and this offers ample opportunities to win big.

Theme and Graphics

The presentation of this game is superb, it has a real futuristic feel to it and the symbols shine brightly on the reels and the graphics are second to none. I also liked the minimal display of the game, less is definitely more here so that the reels are the star of the show.

The music is a bit techno but also mellow and really suits it. It creates a nice ambience and I felt quite relaxed while playing.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 5 reels and 20 paylines and the RTP is 96.5% which is an excellent return the more you play the game.

Below is a summary taken from the PayOut Table from the game. The amount won for each combination depends on the value of the bet when you spin the reels.
