Slide into the futuristic word of bright lights, smooth music and overall tranquil atmosphere. There is nothing to disturb you, no intruders, no obstacles in your way. Prepare yourself for what is about to come. Then, all of a sudden, the race starts, wins and respins keep popping up in succession and you are instantly overwhelmed by that familiar feeling of winning.
If anyone knows how to design a discreet but quite appealing game, it’s Quickspin and much of their style and elegance is proven in Illuminous, released in June 2015. The phrase “Less is more” has never been more true, since the lack of a background story, colorful characters and splashy details in this game only contribute to its appearance. Illuminous is, no doubt, an enjoyable experience for your senses, but with 20 bet lines and a theoretical payout of 96.50% it can be very pleasant for your wallet as well.
Illuminous is a five reel video slot, with three rows, played at fixed 20 bet lines. Coloured gems – pink, orange, green and blue - represent the higher value symbols, while high cards Ace, King, Queen, Jack, Ten and Nine make up the lower values. All wins, as well as game features, are followed with beautiful graphics and sound, meaning you are guaranteed a rewarding gaming experience.
How to Play
Even if the game is played at fixed 20 lines, you will be staking a total of 40 coins per spin, which is not exactly a perfect scenario.
You can select your total bet by choosing one of 13 different values ranging from $0.40 to $80.00 per single spin of the reels.
The game has a standard set of two wild symbols and two game features, which cannot impress anyone. However, wild symbols appear quite often, sometimes in series, increasing your winning chances.
Strategy & Tips
Obtain two Bonus Scatter symbols in a single spin and you will activate Hot Reel Respin Feature. You will be rewarded with one free respin in which those reels containing Bonus Wild Scatter symbols become "hot" meaning they contain many more wilds then regular.
Three or more Bonus Scatter symbols on a single spin will initiate Hot Reel Free Spins, which should be able to provide boost to your account balance.
You will get five free spins, during which the triggering reels receive Hot Reel Effect. Additional Bonus Wild Scatter during Free Spins will trigger a respin with that reel Hot.
Also released in June 2015, Illuminous mobile slot is just as impressive as its desktop counterpart, with vibrant colours and nice animations making for a nice gaming experience on the latest tablet and smartphone devices.
The Quickspin mobile interface is pretty stable and comes with several helpful features, where Settings icon on the left hand side is your shortcut to bet settings, Paytable and few other important sections.
