The Australian software developer Ainsworth takes you to a scantily lit place where the flame of candles will show you the way to prizes. It’s all about a beautiful yet mysterious lady with a mask who lights up fire rings and lanterns but also your bankroll by substituting for other symbols and awarding multipliers.
Released in 2016, Light em Up boasts more polished visuals than the developer’s older titles, yet it’s still a typical Ainsworth affair. Despite its refined purple backdrop and an attractive lady standing on the left-hand side of the reels, the game still features elements that make it seem pretty generic like playing card symbols and mechanical sound effects.
Once you enter this mysterious place, you will notice that the reels are populated by theme-related symbols such as masks, drums, sword on fire, lanterns and fire rings. These symbols constitute the higher ends of the paytable while traditional playing card icons pay low-value prizes. The lady assumes the role of Wild while the Light em Up logo stands for Scatter.
The slot uses 5 reels and 30 non-fixed paylines. You can adjust the number of paylines and coin denomination based on your budget. It is recommended to lower your bet and keep all paylines active, though.
A betting range is wide and suitable for both beginners and high-rollers. Choose a coin value between $0.01 and $100 and you can wager between $0.30 and $3,000 per spin at all paylines active.
Those among you who prefer fast-paced gameplay can activate up to 100 automatic spins that will play without interruption.
You need three or more symbols of a kind on payline left to right to create a winning combo and get paid.
The masked lady is Wild that shows up on the three middle reels only. It will help you create more winning combinations by replacing all other symbols bar Scatters.
Look out for three or more Light em Up Scatters as they award 10 free games during which things get more interesting. Played at another set of reels, free games come with different Wild features that change on every spin. Above the three central reels you will see the extras for each particular spin. They can be Wilds with a 1x, 2x or a 3x multiplier. In addition, you can benefit from expanding Wilds enhanced with up to 3x multipliers.
Thanks to expanding Wilds with multipliers, you can hit some lucrative wins during free games. This is due to the fact that multipliers multiply each other meaning that your wins can be increased by up to 9x if you are lucky enough. The feature can be retriggered, with 5 extra free spins added on every retrigger.
This is one of the most exciting slots by Ainsworth we have played so far and the good news is that you can give it a try on the go as well. Being fully optimized for mobile play, Light em Up slot plays seamlessly on all smartphones and tablets.
