Calling all our progressive jackpot players: there's a new title here at GoWin for you to enjoy! Last week we launched a brand new Megajackpots slot from IGT – Star Lanterns. The game features a oriental theme, with excellent graphics, chances to win free spins and exploding symbols.
Plus, there's that prize pool to pick up too! If you've not yet played this brand new release then head over to our casino right now, or carry on reading to find out all you need to know.
Star Lanterns joins the Megajackpots family which means it will boast a progressive jackpot, naturally. IGT's Megajackpot series has provided us with great games like Wolf Run and Cleopatra in the past, so fans of previous titles should definitely check out Star Lanterns.
Megajackpots Star Lanterns is a 5 reel, 20 payline game with spins starting from as little as 20 coins each. The game launched late last week, and is available on mobile and desktop for all GoWin players.
The game features 3D graphics, which bring the oriental theme to life and give it a unique edge. We know that there's plenty of similar themed games around, but the beautiful design of Star Lanterns makes it really stand out from the crowd.
Set on a backdrop of twinkling water and stars, the reels are filled with all sorts of Chinese lanterns, each decorated with detailed illustrations, such as dragons and koi carp. Alongside that all important jackpot prize, Star Lanterns also features scatters, multipliers and other bonuses. One of the stand out features to the game is the special re-spin feature, which occurs at the end of every winning round.
This feature destroys all winning symbols, and replaces them with new ones, which gives you another chance to create a win! It's similar to the cascading reels feature seen in Gonzo's Quest, which we've always found to be particularly lucrative.
The lotus flower scatters are also something to watch out for, as these could give you up to 14 free spins. On top of that, the start scatters awards multipliers of up to 5x your wager. Each of these features give you plenty of chances of boosting your bankroll and, therefore, more chances of scooping that progressive jackpot prize!
The Jackpot Prize
Star Lanterns will be the fifth title in the Megajackpots series, so by looking at previous titles we can work out some tips and tricks which should help you scoop the progressive prize. Each game in the series boasts a network jackpot, which is hosted by IGT themselves, and means that all players have access to the same prize pool, no matter where they play.
This also allows the jackpot to grow rapidly, as there are so many people playing the game across the globe and all wagers made on the game are put towards the same jackpot. Megajackpot games are designed to pay out more frequently than other progressive jackpots. IGT made this decision so that they can create more winners throughout the year, instead of one single player taking home a huge amount.
This means that the Star Lanterns jackpot will probably be claimed when it hits around the £750,000 mark. Whilst this may seem smaller than other jackpot games, it means that a prize is claimed roughly every month! To take home the jackpot in Star Lanterns, you need to look out for the Megajackpots symbol as four or more of these on your reels will make you a winner.
The slot's jackpot currently stands at over £801,000 so now is a perfect time to play. Head over to the casino and start spinning – you never know when a game like this will pay out, so you need to be in it to win it!
