Northern Lights Slots

Northern Lights Slots is a game that's not entirely sure what it's about, but manages to be fun and refreshing despite that inherent ambiguity. It combines arctic graphics with well done gameplay mechanics and suits of cards that actually look interesting for once. We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with it, mostly wishing that they'd made more use of the theme, or changed it entirely because we're kind of OCD about that.

If you have time, money, and love to spare, give it all to Northern Lights Slots. Skip this review, give it a spin, and win! If not, or you're hesitant, keep reading and we'll figure this all out.

Premise of Northern Lights Slots

The premise of Northern Lights Slots is vaguely having to do with the North Pole. You can tell they kind of wanted to do the aurora borealis, but that never quite made its way all over the game. Instead, it's kind of like a real world Santa, minus Sant Nick because he's not real. Oops, spoiler alert! Your parents did that. You were giving them cookies and making them fat every year, not some old guy that couldn't fit down your chimney if you'd spent even a moment thinking about it.

Presentation in Northern Lights Slots

Graphics in Northern Lights Slots are fun, cute, vibrant, and playful. Everything is crisp, clear, colorful, and compelling to look at, which makes your time spent playing all the easier because of how easy they are on the eyes. You can tell they cared because the backgrounds look great and even the playing cards are covered in ice. This is the mark of a developer who cares, which you can see play out all over the gameplay.

Gameplay Mechanics in Northern Lights Slots

Gameplay in Northern Lights Slots is standard. At 5 reels and 25 pay lines, it does not break the mold there, chosing instead to keep things classy in ways we can respect.

Betting here ranges from a penny to $10, making this an accessible slot that anyone can jump into in hopes of winning a lot of money without worrying about necessarily breaking the bank in the process. Max bets cap out at $250, which tends to be how we rolled when we played it a bunch for our review. We appreciate being able to bet high because that's how we win the most when we're on a roll, which happened often when we played this game.

The bonus round is called the Northern Lights Bonus Game, which wins no awards for innovation, but pays well none the less.

Conclusion The Bottom Line on Northern Lights Slots

Northern Lights Slots is the only Eskimo themed slot on the market, or at least the best one we've played all day. While that isn't saying much, we still had a good time with it and live without regret. If you've dreamt of winning enough money to buy an igloo in the North Pole, there's likely something wrong with you. That's kind of weird, don't you think? For everyone else, and you weirdo's included, give Northern Lights Slots a try. You won't regret it, and if it's hot where you're at, it may cool you off a bit as you win with spin after spin.
