The design in Luminous Life is rather lovely. The setting is the deep blue water of the ocean. On the reels you’ll see an assortment of luminous aquatic life. The best paying symbol is the bright orange (and exceedingly ugly) fish. This pays 5 times your stake if you land 5 on adjacent reels.
The shimmering W is the wild. This replaces all other symbols bar the scatter. Land a combination of 5 wilds and you’ll get a payout of 12.5 times your stake. There are a number of extras on offer in this watery adventure.
Luminous Respin feature - this becomes active following any winning spin. The successful symbols lock in position and the reels spin again. If you land a symbol that improves on the original win or you create a new winning combination with another symbol, they too are held. These respins continue until there’s a respin with no improvement.
Luminous Wilds Free Games feature - land 3 or more free spin scatters and you’ll receive 5 free spins. All of the scatters from the triggering spin turn into wilds for the duration of those free spins. The more scatters, the more sticky wilds in play. The free games symbol is part of the Luminous Respin feature so it’s possible to land a decent cluster here with potentially big results.
If you fill all 15 positions with free spins symbols, you’ll automatically receive the Grand Prize – this is a cool 250 times your stake.
The design here is simple but very classy. The symbols float up rather than drop down onto the reels. The bubbling soundtrack fits the theme nicely too. The sounds and visuals impress and the gameplay does too. There’s plenty of action on offer from the respins and the free spins round with sticky wilds offers some excellent potential.
There are already plenty of similarly themed slot games available. With its lovely looks and good range of extras, Luminous Life is welcome addition though. If you fancy heading under the ocean, Siren’s Kingdom from Iron Dog Studio is my pick.
