Miami Glow Slot Review
A game that was designed by Snowborn Games, a Microgaming partner and supplier of exclusive slots for the latter’s platform, Miami Glow is a neon-style release with excellent rewards and mostly basic-looking graphics. Considerable help will come from multipliers in this game, in trying to get to the ultimate payouts which are included.
Miami Glow gets 5x3 reels and there are 10 active paylines present in the game area. With a top jackpot of 5,000x the stake, medium-high volatility, and a 96.09% RTP, the slot does enough to be appealing to quite a few players. The fact that along the way it introduces wild symbols (sticky or stacked), re-spins, multipliers or bonus games, obviously helps as well.
Betting and Prizes
With the 10 active lines that are offered, Miami Glow will require bets to be set to a value anywhere between $0.20 and $20.
Payouts can be very good, though only if the highest multipliers of the game apply, taking a 500x jackpot to a 5,000x one (up to $100,000). The kind of experience that you will expect to get from Miami Glow is typically described as highly volatile, though it’s not going to any extremes there. There is considerable risk in the short-term, but there will be a decent chance of the player getting paid and keeping the action going.
Another figure that is always worth checking out, is the Return to Player, or RTP. For this game, it’s been calculated to be 96.09%, which is the percentage of the wager that comes back to the player, on average. The long-term profit of the online casino from this game is $3.91 for every $100 wagered on it, which is about average for a slot machine these days.
Miami Glow Slot Features
The green neon-colored Wild symbol will show up and help out, but you do need it landing on the active line where a combo can form. If the requirements are met, the wild substitutes for a symbol that you need, to either improve or form a new combo. Wilds will not be substitutes for other feature symbols. If it happens that you get up to five wilds to form their own wins, they pay the same amount as the jackpot symbol, so up to 50x the stake on each line.
Sticky Wilds can be part of the game as well, and when these land, you get them to remain in place, while the other positions will re-spin. For as long as you keep getting new sticky wilds the re-spins will keep happening.
The most exciting feature of all, for me at least, is the Multiplier. Unfortunately, this one triggers at random moments. On the other hand, when it does trigger, one of four random multiplier values is chosen, between 10x, 5x, 3x and 2x, to apply to the round’s wins.
The only other feature symbol of the game, the Glow scatter has to land three times, on reels 1, 3 & 5. If that does happen, you get one free round with stacked wilds that can take over multiple reels.
Theme & Design
It’s a bit of a tropical vibe that you’re getting, and it comes through even though it uses a neon-style design. Miami does have an influence on the graphics of the game, but at the same time it looks a bit more abstract than you might expect. The Wild symbol is shown, along with the Glow scatter, top-paying Diamonds, but also cocktails, flamingos, lips or the four card suits.
Miami Glow offers the player a couple of good features, which have the potential to make a spin very profitable. I’m not a fan of the random triggering of the multiplier though.
