The wombat says: Had a busy day? The take a deep breath Wombat people and be transported to the frozen lands of Norway courtesy of NetEnt Gaming to experience the magic of the Aurora Borealis while you attempt to win some big prizes.
‘The Aurora Bor-e what?’ I hear you say. Let me explain. The Aurora Borealis (or Northern Lights) are a natural phenomena that can be seen across Scandinavia and the rest of the Far North that create the kind of light show that makes Las Vegas look pretty crap.
The aurora are actually collisions of electrically charged particles from the sun as they enter the earth’s atmosphere, this makes them change colour from deep greens to dark pinks as they float over the horizon.
With its nature-inspired design and the shimmering Northern Lights in the background, this wombat hasn’t played a slot as relaxing as Glow in ages! It’s by NetEnt, the people behind the Pyramid Slot. This is one of those games that will have designer types swooning- like the 1429 Uncharted Seas slot which is also easy on the eye.
The graphics are stylish and minimal (a bit like the Scandis themselves) and with that soothing piano and haunting flute soundtrack you’d be forgiven for thinking you were at a posh spa (I know all about those, I’ve just been to one with Mrs Wombat).
Ok, it looks amazing- like the Sparks Slot in many ways. But what about the play? Let’s find out.
Glow slot has 5 reels and 15 paylines, and your symbols are made up of the kind of wild animals found in the Artic tundra; the Moose, the Wolf, the Fox, the Owl and the Rabbit. These are joined on the reels 10, J, Q, K & A as your low paying symbols. The Bear symbol is the Wild in Glow slot and multiplies any winnings by 2x when it’s part of a combo.
This game doles out Free Spins faster than an artic fox up a Norwegian pine tree! There are no individual Scatter Symbols in Glow, instead, it’s the winning combos on fixed paylines that award you extra turns. How’s that for Scandinavian simplicity? Check out the table below for more info:
Land 2 or 3 Moose, or 3 Wolves, Owls, Rabbits or Foxes and you’ll get 1 Free Spin
Land 4 Moose, or 4 Wolves, Owls, Rabbits or Foxes and you’ll get 2 Free Spins
Land 5 Moose, Wolves, Owls, Rabbits or Foxes and you’ll get 5 Free Spins
Free Spins can be re-triggered during the Free Spin Bonus as ALL the symbols (including the low-paying 10, J, Q, K & A) can set them off. Plus, keep your eyes peeled for the Bear Wild, as it will give you a 4x multiplier in this round.
