Megajackpots Star Lanterns Mobile SlotMajor mobile slots developer IGT has something new up their sleeve for players in 2017. The developer has just announced that it will soon release a brand new progressive slot game for online and mobile play.

MegaJackpots Star Lanterns will be launched on the 23rd of February, and will soon be available at top mobile casinos worldwide. The new slot will join plenty of other exciting new games this month, including Microgaming’s Secret Romance mobile slot and Play ‘n GO’s Jade Magician.

The Megajackpots collection of mobile slots is exclusive to IGT. These progressive slots are all linked to the same progressive network, offering pooled jackpots with prizes that can run well into the millions.

Some of the titles that MegaJackpots Star Lanterns will be joining in the collection are Megajackpots Cleopatra, MegaJackpots Wolf Run, and MegaJackpots Siberian Storm, all of which are available for mobile play.

Slot Shares Jackpot With Other MegaJackpots Games

MegaJackpots Star Lanterns will be the 5th mobile slot in the series to offer wins that exceed millions. However, instead of awarding a single major winner every few months like other popular progressive slots, IGT is aiming to create new winners every month with their latest mobile release.

MegaJackpots Star Lanterns offers 5 reels and 20 paylines, along with numerous bonus features and the quintessential progressive prize. The unique Floating Reels feature will explode winning symbols, whereupon more lantern symbols will float up from below just like their real-life counterparts.

Then there are star Scatter symbols that award multipliers of up to 5x the wins, and landing 3 of these Scatters will trigger a generous 14 free spins. To trigger the MegaJackpots Progressive jackpot, players must collect 4 MegaJackpots symbols, which is especially doable during the free spins game.

Imaginative Asian Theme and Regular Progressive Hits

The theme revolves around the traditional Asian custom of sending lit lanterns floating across the water to bring good luck and fortune. The symbols here are a variety of colourful paper lanterns, and the backdrop shows a spectacular scene over the ocean with red lanterns hovering in the horizon.

With an RTP of 92.40%, MegaJackpots Star Lanterns offers players unique graphics and features and the chance to win big with the pooled progressive jackpot. Now it just remains to be seen what players’ final verdict is when the new mobile slot hits casinos late this February.
