UK – Lightning Box unveils winning combination with Stellar Cash Chicken Fox 5x SkillstarBy Phil - 26 January 2023
Innovative iGaming provider Lightning Box looks set to harvest another hit after returning to the farm for Stellar Cash Chicken Fox 5x Skillstar.
This 3×5 reeler, which boasts 20-win lines, features the studio’s thrilling Stellar Cash feature integrated within one of its most popular games.
It will make its debut with Sky Betting and Gaming this week for a fortnight exclusive before a general release across the UK and Europe.
The game features a farmyard full of familiar symbols including a tractor, pig, chicken, and a goat. The Lady in this game is Wild and substitutes for all symbols except the Golden Egg.
The Golden Egg is the Scatter Bonus symbol and 3, 4 or 5 of these on the reels triggers 8, 15 and 30 Free Games respectively, featuring the Chicken Catch Bonus.
Getting the Golden Eggs initiates Skillstar. This is the opportunity to get onto the leaderboard as the Fox tries to catch as many golden eggs as he can in his sack. This round starts with three lives and the chance to accrue as many points as possible.
After that, a trip to the chicken coop awaits as the Chicken Catch Bonus come into play. The Fox x5 symbol multiplies Free Games by 5x when awarded with the white egg and any chicken caught with Fox x5 pays five times.
The Stellar Cash feature is a popular and retro addition to this game. This is awarded when three spaceships appear on the reels. Players are greeted by sitting in the cockpit of a spaceship whilst zoning in on a target.
In all, there are six levels which are activated by shooting targets to reveal prizes or advancing up a level. If all six levels are completed, then the Jackpot level awaits with a chance to win up to $125,000.
This title will be available to customers of Light & Wonder’s OpenGaming platform, lining up with Lightning Box’s other popular slots.
David Little, CPO at Lightning Box said: “Stellar Cash Chicken Fox 5x Skillstar should prove to be extremely popular with players. We have given one of our most prized slots a bit of a shake-up by adding the Stellar Cash feature and we believe it will be a huge hit.”
Rob Procter, VP Game Development at Light & Wonder said: “Chicken Fox 5x Skillstar was a great success when it was first released and adding the unique Stellar Cash feature to it has enhanced the gameplay along with the retro-looking animations.”
