L&W Lightning Box Unit Releases “Divine Stars” Track
Lightning Box, a slot game developer based in Sydney, Australia, says it was “inspired by Asia” for its latest game, “Divine Stars”.
It will go on sale in the general market in the first half of August, the manufacturer said in a press release on Wednesday. Flash box was acquired in 2021 by former Light & Wonder Inc (L&W) entity, Scientific Games Corp.
Divine Stars is available to customers of Light & Wonder’s OpenGaming platform, alongside new titles such as ‘Chicken Fox Jr’ and ‘Lightning Gorilla’.
The interactive elements of Divine Stars mean that players’ judgments “based on risk and reward decisions have a huge impact on free spins,” said David Little, chief product officer at Lightning Box, quoted in the press release. .
“The combination of huge max payout present in a popular Asian-themed title will be a hit with slot fans and we can’t wait to see the reception the game will receive when it’s released,” said said Rob Procter, vice president of game development at Light & Wonder, also in prepared remarks in the announcement.
The game is played on 3×5 reels, with 25 paylines, and features symbols encompassing Chinese lanterns, “lucky red letters and ancient coins,” the statement said.
Lightning Box was founded in 2004 by Peter Causley and Mr Little, former game designers Aristocrat Leisure Ltd and International Game Technology Plc (IGT) respectively.
