Glow from NetEnt: Slot Review - the game is based on the beautiful Northern Lights
Formerly exclusive to Betsson casino, I was delighted when NetEnt's Glow was released to further casinos in January 2016. I had heard of this 5-reel, 3-row and 15-payline slot game.
Glow comes with a Multiplier, which boosts the potential maximum payout to 96,70%. To double your win, players first need to hit the bear symbol, incorporated into a winning bet line, to enter the free spins round. If players receive a Wild symbol in a winning combination in the free spins round, the winnings are multiplied by 4. I needn't explain why this is my favourite feature in Glow.
It is, however, simultaneously my least favourite feature, as it's a rare occurrence to get that lucky. Having said that, the free spins alone are a great addition in Glow, and make up for much.
Theme and Graphics
The theme of the game are the Northern Lights. While this is a somewhat unconventional theme for most, it’s less so considering NetEnt’s Swedish roots. The background picture is pretty attractive. A faint glimmer of green mixes with the dark sky. The graphic team did a great job.
Furthermore, the game interface has the usual features, we have come to expect of NetEnt# slot games. ‘Auto play’ alike ‘Max Bet’ buttons are part of the game.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots
The coin value can be adjusted from 0.01 to 1.00. The bet level from 1 to 10. As such the maximum bet level (10 x 15 win lines) amounts to £150. This is a relatively high amount, and wouldn't appeal to me. I tend to choose a bet around the mid-range. The handy pay table shows how much each and every symbol is worth. A winning combination consists of at least three identical symbols on a consecutive win line. Due to this simplified system, I do tend to increase my bet, if I am feeling lucky.
Our Verdict on Glow
Glow's biggest asset is its sleek design. The winnings can be high in this game; however, they tend to remain stable and relatively moderate. It is fair to say, that Glow caters to both big cats and novices.
