The mystical northern lights are calling you, you just better hope that your animal spirits are on your side in this Glow mobile slot.
The Glow slot was an exclusive casino game for a couple of years, before being released to the general public (and all great NetEnt mobile casinos) in January of 2016.
It means that it’s not actually particularly unique. Much like Leo Vegas’ Vegas Party slot is just Twin Spin in disguise, or how Mr Green Moonlight is a copy of the famous Frankenstein slot, so Glow also has a predecessor.
Fans of classic NetEnt games will instantly recognise the feature that maybe the Fruit Shop slot one of the most popular games in their portfolio.
But whilst that machine was bright, colourful, and full of of pretty fruits, this Glow video slot is far more subdued, with a soft chanting reels spinning glowing Ace to 10 symbols and animal totems.
It’s beautiful, don’t get us wrong, but if we have to choose a theme, we prefer the livelier Fruit Shop Touch which with it’s more traditional style, making the wins slightly more exciting.
But here’s the thing, the theme of this Glow slot game isn’t bad, and the mechanics are as fun as ever. How can you not get excited when a great 5 of a kind win, with a 2x multiplier on a wild, gives you 5 free spins?
Or the fact that you can barely go 10 spins without triggering 2 to 5 free spins, and re-triggering more free spins again and again. It’s superb value for money, especially when you want to play it safe with your budget, but still want to feel like you might win something decent by the end of it.
Granted, the most free spins we’ve ever won in a row is 18, with an average being more around 4 to 8, but they come so often you won’t really care.
This is NetEnt doing what it does best; simple, great, mechanics that keep you spinning and well entertained.

Wild symbols: The pink bear is the bonus symbol and replaces for all other symbols. It also comes with a 2x multiplier on any win.
Free Spins: Every time you get any high paying symbol win during the base game you trigger free spins. The high paying symbols are the glowing animal totems, and not the Ace to 10 symbols.
3 symbol win will give you 1 free symbol, 4 triggers 2 free spins and 5 triggers 5 free spins. The only exception is the Moose, which is the highest symbol of the lot, which also triggers 1 free spins if you get 2 on a winning payline.
Once triggered, all the free spins are played with a 2x multiplier.
Whilst 5 free spins might not sound like much, even if they do come often, bear in mind that you are more likely to re-trigger the free spins once you are within the bonus feature.
Reason being, this time around any Ace to 10 symbols win also trigger some extra free spins.
The Glow mobile slot is a very pretty little gem of a game, with mechanics that we know works; it's what has made Fruit Shop still so popular after all these years.
So whilst it might not be unique, it certainly has a unique soft calming theme that should appeal to those who prefer their machine a little bit more chilled, for a cold winters night.
Much like the slot Lights, it has one big feature that keeps popping up again and again, giving you lively gameplay, if not the liveliest of themes.
