Lightning Box has drawn inspiration from Asia for its latest release, Divine Stars.
The title, exclusively debuting with Rank Group prior to general release in August, is available to customers of Light & Wonder’s OpenGaming platform alongside new titles Chicken Fox Jr and Lightning Gorilla.
“Divine Stars positions the player’s interaction as a key part of its gameplay. We want our players to be engaged by the title’s lovingly crafted theme and the max win available,” detailed David Little, CPO at Lightning Box.
“However, we also want to provide players with an active role when playing Divine Stars and their choice based around risk and reward decisions have a huge impact on the free spins round.”
Played across 3×5 reels, the 25 payline slot is home to high-paying symbols, including Chinese lanterns, lucky red letters and ancient coins. These are joined by a wild man symbol, which substitutes all other symbols in game except the scatter, which aids in the creation of winning lines.
A Hold ‘n’ Respin round is awarded upon landing two or more scatter symbols left to right in the base game. Three respins are activated with a goal of landing five scatters across the reels, each additional scatter landed resets these spins, allowing for additional opportunities to collect all five scatter symbols.
Upon collection, the player unlocks a star pick bonus, where they are presented with a mystery choice representing varying spin amounts. Any choice made can be kept or gambled for the opportunity of being awarded even more spins. This process is then repeated to determine the size of the multiplier present throughout these free spins.
This varying multiplier can climb as high as 10x and can be available across up to 10 free spins. This player choice is instrumental in awarding Divine Stars max win of 5,000x.
Rob Procter, VP Game Development at Light & Wonder, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Divine Stars to our stable of games.
“The combination of a huge max win present in a popular Asia themed title will be a hit with slot enthusiasts and we look forward to seeing the reception the game receives upon release.”
