Miami Glow

I don’t know when it last snowed in Miami. It must be a long time ago, if ever, and no doubt it was a freak event!

Snowborn are brand new, and they do come from the snowy north, with bases in Helsinki, Finland, and Stockholm, Sweden. This Miami Glow slot game from this new studio is a tie-in with industry giant Microgaming, who are UK based, where snow is also no stranger.

Snow aside, the theme here is warm, sunny, and sultry. Using Miami the legendary clubbing and party town rather than anything else (like for example, its role as a crime hub!) as its Floridian theme.

The graphics and sound are heavy on neon and party colours and vibe and the main bonus are win multipliers, respins with sticky wilds, and a Glow Bonus (the free spins round).

The game comes with higher than usual variance and good starts too.

The Game

Miami Glow Slot

These guys are newcomers, but they know what they’re doing, and this is an easy game to play, and well set up for mobiles.

The controls are big, diagrammatic buttons, to the right of the screen, where a huge spin button sits under the autoplay function. This allows you to stop Autospins on a set number, on a size of the loss, or on a large single win.

Under the spin control is a Bet window, where you tap or click on an amount to pick your stake.

The menu button on the left opens up a two-item menu with the paytable and a lightning symbol that we think if turbo.


Open up the pay table and you’ll see that it opens on card suits, clubs, diamonds, hearts, then spades, paying out between 0.2-times stake and 3-times stake.

The higher paying symbols are all neon lights: lips pay from 1-times stake to 5-times stake. Flamingos pay 1.5 to 10-times stake. Cocktail glasses pay 2-times to 15-times stake. Diamonds pay 2.5 to 25-times stake.

Sticky wilds pay the top amount, and trigger respins with the wilds in place until they no longer pay and retriggers stop. Standard wilds just sub in.

Multipliers are random, with 2, 3, 5, or 10-times multipliers available in the base game and the bonus round.

The Glow symbol is a scatter on reels 1, 3, and 5, and it triggers the free spins that come with stacked wilds.

The Verdict

New boys from the Nordic countries, Snowborn have done a great job in summoning up the glamour and glitz of Florida’s ultimate party city.

This game looks and sounds great, and plays really well, particularly on mobile screens.

There’s a lot of depth to the gameplay though despite the retro feel of the game.

They’re good features too, with multipliers on the reels in both levels of the game. You get wilds in the base game, and the sticky wilds are a nice feature.

The bonus game is great value and could deliver that very generous top prize.

This is a high volatility game, so you should be aware of that when you load it up. You’ll love the bright 3-d graphics and see-through reels and this game shows the benefits of mobile-first design. If we have a minor problem with this game it is only in the menus, which weren’t super-clear or easy to use when we first loaded up the game.
