Lightning Respin feature showcased in latest game in Lightning Series franchise
Light & Wonder, Inc. has announced the launch of its newest hit Lightning Tiger, from specialist slot provider Lightning Box, one of Light & Wonder’s in-house studios.
Players embark on a voyage through a mysterious jungle in this 3×5 slot, as they aim to get their hands on two of this slot’s captivating rounds.
Firstly, the Lightning Respin mode is triggered when six or more Lightning Bolts appear. Initially, three respins are awarded and if one Lightning Bolt reappears in the active reel, the number of respins is reset to the original number. When a player runs out of respins, all wins are collected and added to the win meter.
Additionally, Colossal Lightning Bolts may land on any spin and these split into separate lightning bolts, boosting the chances of a big win for any player.
There are also four in-game jackpots that can be collected, including the Grand Jackpot which can be won by landing the Grand Jackpot Lightning Bolt on a Lightning Respin triggering spin or within an active reel during the Lightning Respin mode.
Finally, the impressive Free Games round is activated when up to five Scatter Ruby symbols award 30 Free Games to players.
Colossal symbols also feature prominently within this mode as they can split into individual symbols. The Lightning Respin can also be unlocked, with between six and thirteen triggering this round again. Once this captivating feature has finished, it immediately returns to Free Games where players can collect up to four Scatters to add on 15 Free Games.
Lightning Tiger is a successful Light & Wonder title now available for online players. It will initially be exclusively available in New Jersey with BetMGM.
Michael Maokhamphiou, Studio Director at Lightning Box, said: “Lightning Tiger is our latest title that features gripping gameplay as users are able to activate this exclusive duo of different modes.
“The Lightning Respin round bolsters this slot with its thrilling gameplay and animations, leading players into a world of treasure.”
Rob Procter, VP of Game Development at Light & Wonder, said: “Lightning Box has ensured that Lightning Tiger is primed to be a huge hit with players across the globe, with a variety of ways to conquer this latest release.
“The slots that Lightning Box continues to produce is testament to the hard work of the whole team and there is no doubt that Lightning Tiger has all the attributes to be one of our most popular titles of 2023.”
