Space Lights is a 5 reel, 15 payline slot which has 5 reels and 15 paylines. Available to play from 30p to £75 per spin on desktop, mobile and tablet devices, it allows you to discover the universe in this space themed game. It offers you unique game mechanics featuring re-spins, sticky wilds and bonus features for winning combinations.
Visually stunning and set in outer space, it has a soundtrack that wouldn’t be out of place in a Chill Out Ibiza music compilation. Symbols on the reels include modern asteroids in sphere, cube and triangular pyramid shapes, circle, square and triangle objects and square, diamond, triangle and square drawings in neon colours. There’s also a wild and sticky wild which are the most rewarding symbols giving you 20 times your stake for 5 on a payline.
Onto the gameplay – a Portal will randomly affect 1 reel with each spin. If the upper symbol on the randomly chosen reel is part of a winning combination, it will transform into a Sticky Wild symbol and trigger the Space Light mode. If new Sticky Wilds appear, you will benefit from a re-spin.
The Portal spreads Sticky Wild symbols down only if the next symbol on the reel forms part of a winning combo. The feature only ends when no more Sticky Wilds appear on the reel. If you manage to fill the reel fully with Sticky Wilds, you will get a bonus prize. This is calculated by the value of Sticky Wilds times a multiplier up to 3x times your stake.
On reels 4 and 5, the Space Light mode works differently – portals can appear between the 2 reels to activate them both simultaneously! You only need to get 1 of the upper symbols on the reels to be part of a winning spin for symbols to transform into Sticky Wilds on both reels. You will continue to get re-spins if you get more Sticky Wilds.
Very hypnotic, Space Lights is a superb game from Playson which is unique – it can also give you huge wins if you get plenty of Sticky Wilds during the re-spins. It’s all about collecting wilds basically which can lead to big wins if luck is on your side.
Variance wise, I found it to be in medium to high range with the Space Light mode quite difficult to win anything big from – my best return was just 600 times my stake when I got 4 re-spins and 9 wilds where I got a 3x multiplier. If you like space themed games, I also recommend the iconic Starburst from NetEnt.
