Review: Miami GlowEntertainment, Gambling
The 80’s are back and flashier than ever in Miami Glow, a brand new online slots game from Snowborn games and Microgaming. Miami Glow presents players with an awesome retro 80’s aesthetic that’s sure to catch few eyes. With colorful decorations, relaxing music and easy-to-grasp mechanics, Miami Glow is an easily approachable game for players of all experience levels. Let’s take a look under the hood with this brand new online slots game available at Spin Palace online casino.
Basking in the glow
Anyone who has ever seen the likes of Scarface or Miami Vice will be instantly familiar with the neon aesthetic of Miami Glow. The team behind the game worked hard to replicate a sense of the films and TV shows that inspired the game’s striking aesthetic.
The unique symbols for the game include the pink diamond, cocktail, flamingo and kiss. There are also the Spades, Hearts, Diamonds, and Clubs symbols, as well as Wild, Sticky Wild and Glow Bonus symbols. All the symbols are rendered in a beautiful and vibrant neon look that jumps off the screen.
A lot of effort was put into making the glowing neon symbols look as close to the real thing as possible. The game even features a soft VHS-video look to further inspire the retro feel of the era. The music for the game is equally as much of a throwback as the visual direction. The chip music sounds hark back to the classic SEGA games of the 80’s with retro arcade sounds.
The bright colours and retro music call back to 1980’s vibes of Miami’s Ocean Drive, a hotspot for swanky clubs, bars, and restaurants along Miami’s legendary beachfront. The game is designed from the ground-up to be easily accessible for casual players looking for a relaxing slots experience. In the words of the game’s designers, the look-and-feel was meant to convey the sense of “driving along Ocean Drive in a Ferrari Daytona Spyder in the sunset”.
All this comes together into a game that’s easy to get into and spend a while in.
Full of features
Players might like to know some more of the specific game features of Miami Glow before taking the game for a spin. Let’s explore them.
First off, Miami Glow is a high volatility slots game made up of 5 x 3 reels. There are 10 possible paylines as well as Wild symbols, bonus triggers, Multipliers and Free Games.
The game is always played with all 10 of the paylines selected. Wins that occur at the same time on different paylines are added to the win. However, there can only be one payout per payline and only the highest win per payline is paid out.
Wilds and Multipliers are pretty straightforward. Wilds can simply stand in for any symbol other than the Glow symbol. Multipliers are active both during the base game and during features and randomly apply either a 1, 2, 3, 5, or 10 times Multiplier to all wins.
One of the most important features of the game is the Sticky Wild Respin which is triggered by landing a Sticky Wild symbol. In addition to triggering a respin, the Sticky Wild symbol can also stand in for all symbols except the Glow symbol. These symbols will remain in position until all the respins are over. Respins will continue until no new Sticky Wilds appear.
Glow symbols are probably the most sought after symbols in Miami Glow. These symbols can only appear on reels 1, 3, and 5. Landing 3 Glow symbols initiates the GLOW bonus feature which allows for 1 Free Spin with stacked Wilds and a guaranteed payout. Any Multipliers drawn in the base game (up to a maximum of 10x) is applied to all wins acquired during the GLOW bonus feature. The GLOW bonus feature cannot be retriggered.
A game of numbers
A good online slots game is nothing without the numbers to back it up. With a payout percentage of 96.09% and a 22.78% hit rate, Miami Glow is very much a high-volatility title.
With a maximum bet of 20 credits a player is able to score a maximum possible payout of 250 000 credits. A default bet of 2.00 credits can score a maximum payout of 25 000 credits. The minimum possible bet is just 0.20 credits.
Take me to Miami
Miami Glow is a laid-back and easy-to-grasp title for players who enjoy a more relaxed online slots experience. The original music and top-notch visuals draw the player into the vibrant world of Miami’s famous nightlife scene. The game pays respect to the time and media that inspired it in the best way possible. Players can expect to find unique slots like Miami Glow and more at Spin Palace online casino.
