The Sydney-based gaming studio Lightning Box is slated to release its newest slot, Stunt Stars, this month, and it looks like players will be seeing stars (or at least their doubles). That’s right; this slot is dedicated not to the famous movie stars that people recognize but to the daredevil stunt doubles that make the films we see so enjoyable. Just as stunt doubles ensure films are packed with action, they’ll also make players' pulse rates climb in this slot game.
Stunt Stars is a 3x5 slot with 243 ways to win designed in HTML5. In line with the theme of fast-paced action, it’s a highly volatile game with an RTP that breaks even at 96.0%. The minimum bet is .3 and the maximum is .9, with the game's maximum win coming in at 17,010x the stake.
Symbols include J through A royals, which feature different movie paraphernalia on them, such as popcorn, tickets, and a director's chair. There are also clapper boards, roller skates, and two different stunt doubles shooting a gun and riding a motorcycle. There are also car wilds and skydiver scatters.
The bonus round is triggered when three or more scatters land on the reels. Before the round starts, players are taken to a new screen where they get to choose among several skydivers. The skydiver they choose then needs to collect different symbols:
- Heart - Rewards one free spin
- Star - Adds Scatter Stunt Double symbols to free spins
- Parachute - Ends the collecting stage
Free Spins and Scatter Stunt Doubles
The free spins are added up, and players play the total amount to play out in the bonus game (the maximum is 15). Each Stunt Star adds five Scatter Stunt Doubles to the reels. Three, four, or five Stunt Doubles across the reels get additional payouts. If five symbols land, players can win x11 of their original payouts.
Stunt Stars from Lightning Box is the rare slot that delivers both in terms of storyline/theme and in terms of gameplay. In fact, the two are woven seamlessly together, with the gameplay complementing the storyline so that the two are part and parcel of each other. While this game doesn’t have a jackpot, it has a relatively high maximum win: 17,010x the stake.
Plus, there are some enthralling features that are designed for action lovers. Wilds scatters, and skydivers combine to make this game a great homage to stunt doubles and a thrilling experience for slot players.
