Where to play?
Finally here’s a slots that hits all the high notes since it has the potential to offer a life-changing payout. IGT’s MegaJackpots Star Lanterns has 20 paylines, 5 reels and it’s a medium variance progressive jackpot to boot!
It’s a Chinese-themed game that showcases lanterns as symbols on the reels. It comes with a Floating Reel feature and a Star symbol with 5x multipliers when they appear in a winning combination. When the multipliers are locked together 2 or more Star symbols can be gained.
Not to be outdone by the above mentioned features, the free spins mode awards you 14 free spins in conjunction with a Star Multiplier and Floating Reels feature. Last but certainly not least is the progressive jackpot, win it and you’ll be rich! Aesthetic wise the game really looks good sprinkled throughout with shining lanterns, the big yellow lantern offers the biggest cash prize of 50x your stake for 5 at the maximum bet.
MegaJackpots Star Lanterns slots offers an average return to player percentage (RTP) of 95.4% which is quite high for a progressive. During the base game keep your eye on the Floating Reels feature since it’s triggered the moment you hit a winning combination. That said, this feature kicks in during the free spins feature taking wins to the next level but more on this in a bit.
If you don’t have a large bankroll it’s best not to play the game unless you’re just playing it for fun. High rollers can really sink there teeth into it since the maximum wager is up to £$600 per spin!
As mentioned earlier on, there are 3 bonus modes starting with the ‘Floating Reels, ‘Star Multiplier’ and the ‘Free Spins’. It’s nice to see a progressive jackpot with so many treats!
When you hit a winning combo during the main game and free spins you’ll trigger the Floating Reels feature. Symbols that appear in a winning combination burst into flames and disappear while the empty reels are filled with symbols from below. You can gain a bunch of wins from each successive spin but the moment the winning combination stops so does the feature.
Mind my saying so but this is a nifty little feature because the potential for some really big wins lurk here. During the Star Multiplier each Star icon awards multiplier wins that range from 2x up to 5x. The nice thing about it is that it applies to both the base game and free spins mode. Should 2 or more Star icons pitch and float across your screen the multiplier values start with 2x, 5x even up to 8x! There’s a small caveat though, the Star symbol only pops up on reels 1, 2 and 3.
This is the meat and gravy section of the game. The free spins is initiated when 3 Bonus scatters pitch on the first, second and third reels. You must pick 1 of 3 lanterns which awards you anything from 4 to 14 free spins. The Star Multiplier reigns supreme here but regrettably no Bonus symbols appear to re-trigger the free spins.
There’s no rocket science involved with IGT’s MegaJackpots Star Lanters, the higher your average stake per spin the better your chances are at hitting that elusive jackpot.
The jackpot is paid when 4 MegaJackpot icons appear on the reels, in other words when the MegaJackpot symbols is revealed by the Star symbols. To make a long story short, I’m nuts about the progressive since it offers excellent wins during the base game as well as during the Star Multiplier and Free Spins features. Had I not been a low roller I’d be cracking a few spins on it now.
