Light & Wonder, Inc. specialist iGaming provider Lightning Box opened the curtain on its stunning new game Stunt Stars after taking inspiration from the action-packed movie genre.
“Stunt Stars should be a smash hit with players, and we’re delighted to be making such a fast and exciting start to the new year with rank,” said David Little, CPO at Lightning Box. “There are plenty of thrills and spills to blow away the January blues.”
This 3×5 reel, which boasts 243 different ways to win, features fast and furious game play and an authentic soundtrack straight from the pages of a Hollywood script.
It will make its debut in the U.K. and EU this week with the Rank Group followed by a general release in two weeks’ time.
The slot’s symbols include the classic 10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace, as well as a clapper board and stunt doubles. The wild symbol is a car and the scatter bonus symbol is a sky diver.
Players are awarded a bonus symbol when three, four or five bonuses land on the grid, before being transported to a different screen where they have to pick the sky diver they believe will give them the biggest reward. During this bonus round, bonus games and stunt stars are collected. Each stunt star adds five scatter stunts to the reels.
Bonus games are also collected and added to the total of bonus games played. The parachute symbol begins this round and a maximum of 15 bonus games are awarded during the sky dive bonus.
The stunt feature is awarded by collecting any stunt double symbol across the reels. The on-screen pay is repeated for each scatter stunt at twice the original payout. There is an additional pay for any three, four or five stunt double across the reels of 30. If five symbols are landed, the total win would be 11x the original payout.
This title will be available to customers of Light & Wonder’s industry-leading OpenGaming platform, lining up with Lightning Box’s other popular slots.
“After the success of games such as Divine Stars, we are pleased to welcome Stunt Stars to our ever-growing portfolio,” said Rob Procter, VP Game Development at Light & Wonder. “The combination of bonuses, features, and many different ways to win gives fans the chance to try out a title which we know will be extremely popular.”
