How to play Illuminous mobile slot

We’ve seen this Illuminous mobile slot before, yet despite that, this Quickspin game is simple, beautiful and will light your wallet well into the night.

When we did the Jewel Blast review, by the same slots provider, we said that it was Starburst, but with wilds that exploded.

Following on in the tradition of being inspired by one of the most famous NetEnt slots of all time, Quickspin created Illuminous, which is Starburst but with more free spins and more wilds.

And you can see some of the similarities straight away as you load this purple, green and blue neon Illuminous slot machine. Taking up your whole screen, it’s simple ace symbols and gems might not burst, but they look beautiful on Android and iOS.

Yet, as you might have come to expect from the Quickspin Gaming tradition, it’s different enough to warrant a closer look.

Free re-spins and wilds bonus symbols

Whenever you get two bonus wild symbols on the five reels, and it’s fairly often, every 30 spins or so, you’ll get one free re-spin of the reels, with two of the wild reels ‘hot’.

No, it’s not an expanded wild. It simply means that you are guaranteed to get at least one wild in that reel during the re-spin – usually 2, sometimes even 3.

Of course, that doesn’t guarantee a win, but certainly gives you the pitter patter of hope, and keeps your casino balance ticking along.

How much can I win in the Illuminous slot?

Up to 404 times your bet. So not much less than the beautiful Starburst Touch.

And Illuminous does have a secret weapon in its arsenal to make it stand out. Namely that if you get 3 wilds on the reels, you’ll trigger 5 free spins, with three reels ‘hot’ with wilds.

Get another wild on one of the other reels, and it remains ‘hot’ too, up to all five reels can become a stack of wilds across your mobile screen.

That said, the big slot wins are, perhaps, not as likely to happen as if you played on something like the Big Bad Wolf slot which has larger multipliers, but this Illuminous mobile game is bright, colourful and stretches your budget well into the night.

Bonus Features

Wilds: The big pink ball with a 'W Bonus' on it is wild and will replace all other symbols on screen.

Hot Reels Re-spin: Get two bonus wilds anywhere on screen and you'll be given one free re-spin. The two reels that the wild are on become 'hot' and on the re-spin, are guaranteed to have at least one wild, if not two or three.

If you get another 'W Bonus' symbol on one of the non 'hot' reels, you'll get one more re-spin, with an extra 'hot' reel.

Hot Reels Free Spins: If you get three wild bonus symbols on screen at once, you'll trigger 5 free spins, with the three reels 'hot'.

So again, more guaranteed wilds on every spin.

Add that if you get another wild symbol on a non-hot reel these then turn hot, and you can see how getting 5 reels hot with wild symbols isn't that far out of this world.

Illuminous Review Conclusion

The Illuminous mobile slot is very pretty and a great alternative for fans of Starburst who want something that's familiar enough to want to play, but with a slight twist.

If that's too close to home, but still want the simplicity, we recommend the fantastic Sevens High slot machine.
