Keno by Light & Wonder’s Lightning Box
Light & Wonder-owned LIGHTNING BOX has added keno to its extensive high-quality portfolio.
The studio’s debut table game will see players picking between three to ten numbers from a grid of 80 possible choices. The round then begins, and 20 numbers are randomly drawn and displayed on the grid, with at least two matching numbers awarding a win. Players have an option to pick these numbers themselves or have them determined randomly by the quick pick feature.
Drawn numbers can be revealed with a lightning bolt symbol attached to them, landing six or more of these awards the lightning respin round. Here three respins are unlocked and reels are randomly made active and are highlighted by lightning bolts. Landing an instant cash prize within this reel resets the respins to three and awards the prize shown.
Additionally, 2×2 and 3×3 Colossal symbols can be landed on the reels. These can award instant cash prizes along with jackpots consisting of Mini, Minor, Major or Grand jackpot prizes. If landed on an active reel, these also reset the three respins.
Keno will be exclusively available via Rank Interactive for two weeks before being made available to customers of Light & Wonder’s industry leading OPENGAMING platform alongside popular new titles such as CRYSTAL VAULT and BLOOD AND GOLD.
Michael Maokhamphiou, operations manager at Lightning Box said: “Keno is our first table game, and we are thrilled to couple the unique gameplay offered by this title with our player favourite mechanic lightning respin.
“Providing players with the bonus round found within popular titles like LIGHTNING GORILLA and LIGHTNING BLAZE in conjunction with the table gameplay of keno has produced a title with universal appeal that we are excited to see players reception.”
Rob Procter, VP Game Development at Light & Wonder said: “Keno demonstrates Lightning Box’s flexibility to produce engaging and entertaining titles, with this being the first table game created by the studio. They have blended a traditional table game with the much-adored lightning respin mechanic that we are confident players will enjoy.”
