Quickspin are a company that know how to develop an entertaining online slot; their games tend to be big, bold and colourful and Illuminous is another example of that. The symbols are bright, the design is crisp and there’s an extra aspect to the bonus feature which makes things tick along nicely. Check out our comprehensive review below for more information.
Illuminous is a five reel slot with three rows and twenty fixed paylines; the game’s design is reminiscent of recent Quickspin releases with plenty of clarity and colour combined with a perky soundtrack that keeps things moving along. There’s a subtle science fiction vibe to proceedings but it’s difficult to categorise this game in any particular genre.
Coloured gems represent the high value symbols – pink, orange, green and blue – while the standard 9, 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.
The wild symbol is a big gold ‘W’ which substitutes for all others except the scatter; that scatter is represented by a big ‘W Bonus’ icon and it’s the key to the features.
Hot Reel Respins
If you land just two of the bonus scatter symbols anywhere on the reels you will trigger this mini-feature. You will receive one free respin during which the reels containing the triggering symbols become ‘Hot Reels’; these reels contain extra wilds which helps out in the quest for extra wins.
Hot Reel Free Spins
If you can land three or more of the bonus scatter symbols anywhere in view you will trigger this main feature. You will only receive five free spins which may sound a bit stingy but the Hot Reels are activated once again so that extra wilds will appear on those reels where the scatters landed.
Additionally any more bonus symbols which land during this round will trigger one Hot Reel Respin.
Illuminous features a simple but high quality design with a decent RTP of 96.50%. There’s some extra creativity built in to the bonus features which we like and this is certainly worth some of your slot-playing time.
