Glow is a slot by NetEnt that we’re already very familiar with, as it originally launched in April 2015, exclusively to Betsson and their brands. The exclusivity time period is now up and the slot proved popular enough that NetEnt has decided to release it across all NetEnt casinos in January 2016. This is great news to players who can’t or don’t want to play at Betsson as they’ll soon be able to play this stunning Northern Lights inspired slot at their favourite casinos instead.
Exclusive NetEnt Slots
It’s possible for a casino to team up with NetEnt to create an exclusive slot, generally based on an existing slots mechanics but with the casinos own twist. Most of these exclusive arrangements have a time period, such as 6 months or a year, before the game is eligible to go network wide and become available across all NetEnt casinos. An exclusive slot is a great way for a casino to stand out at a time when most casinos offer the exact same games, bonuses and even technical platforms.
NetEnt’s Glow Slot
Glow is one of the most beautiful slots I’ve ever seen, based around the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis. The background is a stunning depiction of the natural wonder of the world, which gives both a colourful and relaxing feel to the game.
It’s bright but subtle, exciting but zen. The symbols have a gorgeous ‘tribal’ feel to them with A10 symbols and animals such as wolves, owls, moose and more, with a dense forest land surrounding the reels. Usually when releasing an exclusive slot network wide, NetEnt will make some tweaks and changes to the look of the slot but as far as I can see from this preview footage, the look is exactly the same, and the sound effects remain a quite beautiful ‘chill out’ style music, rather than just sounds. A woman’s voice sings to us as we win, making us feel totally in the moment and get quite swept up with the excitement.
Feature-wise, Glow from NetEnt is as rich as you’d expect, with a bear Wild symbol which not only creates winning pay lines but also doubles any wins that are created using it. There is even a free spins round that can be awarded on any winning spin, a free spins round which includes Wilds and even more multipliers.
Glow is one of the most visually pleasing slots with the best audio track I’ve ever played with so I look forward to it’s release across all Netent casinos on January 14th 2016.
