Illuminous Slots

Bright gems, sparkling Bonus and the Hot Reels feature are on offer in this neon release with software by Quickspin. This Illuminous video slot boasts 20 paylines and the Hot Reel Respin feature that we've seen in Jewel Blast. In addition here we have a Free Spins bonus, also featuring the Hot Reels with extra Wilds.

Sharp graphics, but a simplistic design with mechanics that we've seen before - can this jewel themed slot stand out from the crowd? Our expert online gambling review puts the Illuminous video slot to the test to determine if players should commit their real cash online?

High Wagers Across 20 Paylines

Typically of software by Quickspin the 20 paylines are fixed. Wagers, however, are unusually high with the bet range starting at 0.40 per spin. The max bet is 80.00 and RTP is 96.50% with pretty medium volatility.

Sleek and Shiny Reels, but No Theme

Quickspin proclaim that "Illuminous means bright, and bright is what this game is".

There is certainly an interesting light shaft pattern in the background and the gems are brightly coloured, but, 'bright' isn't a theme and this slot lacks a cohesive theme to give a player a story or a journey.

Playing card symbols 9 through A offer low paying payouts of up to 40x your line bet for five matching aces. The top payout of the four gems comes from pink diamonds at 250x your line bet for 5OAK. Similarly Wild symbols and Bonus Wilds offer a fixed real cash prize of 250x your line bet for scoring all five.

So, for added real cash value we look to the Hot Reel Respins feature and the Free Spins Bonus.

Hot Reel Repsins and Free Spins Bonus

To turn the reels 'Hot' a player needs to land two Bonus Wild symbols. This triggers a Reel Respin featuring additional Wild symbols. About 50% more, according to the generous Quickspin. This means a much higher real cash potential, which can continue as long as Bonus Wild symbols land on the reels.

Land three or more of the Bonus Wild symbols and you'll be awarded 5 Free Spins. The reels that featured Bonus triggers now become 'Hot' with additional Wilds for the duration of Free Spins. Additionally the Hot Reel Respin feature also applies.

Other Slots To Check Out

Whilst similar to the Jewel Blast video slot we have the addition of a Free Spins round here, giving Illuminous an advantage.

Slots that attempt the same style, but more successfully with a more comprehensive theme and atmosphere include iSoftbet's Wisps video slot. The enigmatic Wisp beings are beautiful and offer in-reel cash boosting features plus Free Spins.

Alternatively trumping the theme again, iSoftbet's Neon Reels video slot offers futuristically luminescent drama with Free Spins and a Progressive Jackpot.

Should I Play For Real Money?

Yes. The free Illuminous slot is attractive with a fast pace and the Hot Reels Respin feature and Bonus serve to add action.

However, in a sea of online gambling games with high specs and outstanding unique features a slot needs more than is on offer here to help it stick in the memory. It's a very playable slot, but, it's not very memorable.

Games that stick in the memory include Play'nGO's Rage to Riches video slot, Yggdrasil's free Incinerator slot or even Quickspin's ownHidden Valley video slot. The common thread with all these games is a fun and dramatic theme - a story with attention to detail woven through graphics, mechanics and soundtrack. Check out any one of these slots and you'll see the difference immediately.
