Luminous Life is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot from Playtech that can be played from 20p to £300 per spin on desktop, mobile and tablet devices. Set in the ocean, it comes with a Luminous Respin feature where you get respins in order to get more wins. There’s also a free spins feature where you will get respins with every win. Finally, there’s also a progressive jackpot to be won.
Luminous Life is set under the ocean – it has a peaceful and tranquil feel to it. With luminous symbols on the reels, you’ll see an assortment of creatures which glow. With rare squids, jellyfish and shrimp, the most lucrative symbol is the seadevil anglerfish is the most rewarding giving you 2.5 times your stake for 5 on a payline. There’s also a wild symbol which substitutes for all symbols bar the Free Games feature.
When you get a winning combination, the Luminous Respin feature is triggered – all winning symbols stay frozen in place with the reels respinning. If any winning combination is improved, the combination freezes with the reels respinning again. The respins continue until you don’t enhance the win.
There’s also a Luminous Wilds Free Games feature which is played when you get 3 or more Free Games scatters anywhere on the reels – you will get 5 free spins with the Luminous Respin feature coming into play. All triggering scatters transform into wilds for the duration of the feature (i.e. frozen wilds). Each win will give you respins which can seriously add to your winning potential.
Luminous Life also comes with a Luminous Grand Prize – if you manage to fill the entire reel set with Free Games scatters, you’ll win the grand prize of 250 times your total stake (the maximum win amount if you also fill the screen with wilds).
Visually, I must say Luminous Life is stunning – the eye-candy animations and graphics are just superb. It’s a medium to high variance slot with maximum wins of 250 times your stake on every spin/free spin. You can win much more if you get a decent number of respins in the base game or feature.
Overall, Luminous Life looks great and is quite relaxing – the maximum win amount isn’t as high as I’d like it to be so I’d rather more volatile offerings like Sultan’s Gold or Raiders of the Hidden Realm (both from Playtech).
