Take a stroll under the sky full of lanterns gleaming instead of stars in the new Asian-themed slot by IGT. Imagine entering the world’s most beautiful store that creates magnificent, ornate lanterns that float above your heads. This is the feeling you get when you launch Star Lanterns slot set against a dark blue background lit with thousands of lanterns. This is one of IGT’s progressive slots that belongs to Megajackpot series which means that at any spin a life-changing jackpot might strike you. Visually stunning on any device, Star Lanterns slot comes available at the price of at least $0.20 and maximum of $600 which will surely appeal to high-rollers.
IGT knows better than to rely only on the progressive jackpot so you can expect plenty of rewarding features in this video slot. The paying combinations will come from various lanterns, the most expensive of which are the most ornate and most attractive ones. One of them serves as the Wild which can replace any other lamp, but not the special symbols (Star, Bonus and MegaJackpot trigger).
Speaking of the special symbols, they are pretty useful in this game, especially the yellow star which acts as a multiplier but it can also award the long-awaited Megajackpot. It appears only on first three reels, but when it appears it counts as 2x – 5x multiplier which increases with each star. This can lead to a multiplier of 8x which is applied to your wins.
Naturally, the game will not go without Free Spins round which is activated by a matching combination of 3 Bonus icons shaped as a lotus flower. When you land these three images on reels 1, 2 and 3 three magnificent lanterns will appear, each hiding a specific number of spins. The most you can get is 14 but the good news is that the Star Multiplier is active in the free play too.
Another feature active during the free play, but also in the base game is Floating Reels. It is activated on any winning spin, when the winning symbols get burnt to thin air, while the new lanterns coming floating to fill their places. This means that you get even more combinations without spending money.
The luckiest players will discover the Megajackpot behind the Star or through the Second Chance feature. We must say that IGT have done a great job packing this progressive slot with features to keep the players entertained in the anticipation of the top prize. This spectacularly design is of medium variance, so apart from being nice to look at and spin, it will reward you regularly, as well.
