Lightning Blaze by Light & Wonder’s Lightning Box
Light & Wonder-owned LIGHTNING BOX has revamped the fruit slot with its a-peel-ing new title Lightning Blaze.
Players will be pulling the lever each spin in this 40 payline title inspired by land-based slots. The game’s symbols are made up of bells, cherries and grapes, among other fruit machine archetypes, including sevens.
These sevens are Lightning Blaze’s wild and substitute all other symbols in-game except the scatter. These can land with both a double seven which denotes a 2x multiplier and a triple seven which denotes a 3x multiplier, increasing the overall winning potential in the base game.
Six or more scatter lightning bolt symbols are required to unlock entry into the Lightning Respins. These each have an instant cash prize attached to them which is awarded during the lightning respin round. Here active reels are created and landing additional lightning bolt symbols within these reels resets the three respins initially given.
These lightning bolt symbols come in many different varieties, colossal symbols are 2×2 or 3×3 in size and can split into multiple prizes when landed within an active reel. Jackpot symbols can award Mini, Minor, Major or Grand jackpot prizes along with standard lightning bolts also being present. These varying lightning bolts are key to awarding players Lightning Blaze’s max win of 9,750x.
Releasing exclusively via Paddy Power Betfair and Pokerstars for two weeks from Aug 17th before its general release. Lightning Blaze is available to customers of Light & Wonder’s industry-leading OpenGaming platform, alongside new titles such as Divine Star and Chicken Fox Jr.
“Lightning Respin has become a fan-favourite mechanic with the feature now available in some of our most popular titles, including Lightning Gorilla, Lightning Shenlong and now Lightning Blaze,” said Lightning Box operations manager Michael Maokhamphiou. “This game is inspired by iGaming’s land-based heritage yet fires up the classic fruit machine with new features and innovation, whilst providing players with familiar symbols within a timeless theme.”
Light & Wonder VP game development Rob Procter added: “Lightning Blaze will expand Lightning Box’s varied and high-quality portfolio of games. The title incorporates both classic gameplay and modern features which will have universal appeal to players. We are excited to add Lightning Blaze to our OpenGaming platform.”
