Light & Wonder subsidiary Lightning Box has announced the launch of its first slot of 2023, Stunt Stars.
The game, which launches with the Rank Group in the UK and EU this week before a general release in two weeks’ time, takes inspiration from action films and is jam-packed with plenty of win opportunities.
Stunt Stars utilises a 5×3 grid layout with 243 paylines, and it has an above-average RTP of 95.99%.
Symbols in the slot include Wild Car symbols, alongside Star and Skydiving Scatter symbols. It also comes with symbols of a woman shooting guns, a man on a motorbike, a clapperboard, a pair of boots, and the usual A, K, Q, J, and 10 symbols too.
The Stunt Stars slot comes with several special features, including the Wild Car symbols that substitute for all symbols except Scatter Skydive and Stunt symbols. Wild symbols only appear on the second, third, and fourth reels.
Landing three or more Stunt and Skydive Scatter symbols triggers a payout, and landing three, four or five Skydive symbols triggers the Skydive Bonus, where you must select a Skydive and compete to collect the most modifiers to the free games.
In the bonus, you earn one free game for every Heart collected, and five Scatter Stunt Double symbols are added for every Star, with up to 15 Stars and Hearts available to collect. Collecting the parachute starts the Free Games.
When the Free Games starts, five Scatter Stunt Double symbols are added to the reels for every Star collected. All free games are played out, with the chance to retrigger the feature. Additional Sydive Bonuses can be queued, and all collected modifiers are reset upon the start of the feature.
David Little, the CPO at Lightning Box, said in a statement via European Gaming: “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. There are plenty of thrills and spills to blow away the January blues.”
Rob Procter, the VP of Game Development at Light & Wonder, added: “After the success of games such as Divine Stars, we are pleased to welcome Stunt Stars to our ever-growing portfolio. 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.”
The slot is the first to launch by Lightning Box and Light & Wonder, and it’ll likely be followed by numerous other titles too. You can stay up-to-date on all slot and game launches right here on smartphonecasinos.co.uk.
