When I do these slot write-ups I generally try to give players something fun and exciting to see that describes the game. Unfortunately, the Illuminous slot by Quickspin is a game that may be the most mundane and boring video slot that I've happened upon this year. Take it from me when I say there's literally nothing here that can't be experienced with other slots that are way more entertaining.
Illuminous is a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot that manages to pack in a bunch of tired symbols that have all been seen elsewhere. The symbols include card symbols (9, 10, Jack, Queen, King Ace) as well as blue diamonds, green emeralds, orange stones, and a pink diamond. The game's features include free spins, wild symbols, and re-spins on bonus symbols. The game also posts a Return to Player percentage of 96.6%, which is on the higher side of normal for an online slot.
I ended up playing this game for a while in order to have an honest opinion of what exactly is going on here. Within my play time, I found that the game was very boring, with the only part that made me impressed being the lights that explode when a win is turned up. Other than that, I was bored inside of a minute, and saw no compelling reason to continue playing Illuminous. There are simply so many other great Quickspin games out there to play that I can't recommend this game to you.
With that being said, there will be people who find this game good, as it maybe one of the first slots that the player sees. If this is the case, I'd highly recommend they check out the other games online, as there are a lot of innovative features that make online slots so much better.
