As you can see in the image below, the controls that allow you to spin the reels, activate Autoplay, and change your bet are all gathered below the reels.
Above the reels, a golden display shows you how far the progressive jackpot has built up so far.
The excitement starts when you get any winning combination during the base or bonus game. All symbols from the winning combo will disappear, allowing new symbols to float up in their place. This process keeps repeating as long as you keep landing those winning combinations, meaning you can get a chain of multiple wins from a single spin.
The gleaming star symbols will award you a 2x, 3x, or 5x win multiplier whenever they appear on the reels. If 2 or more Star symbols land during a spin, their multiplier values will be combined.
Your winning chances get even better when you land 3 Bonus scatter symbols on reels 1, 2 and 3.
You will have to choose 1 of the 3 lanterns to get between 4 and 14 free spins. While this feature is running, the Star Multiplier feature will trigger more often, giving you more chances for big wins.
The game’s ultimate prize could be yours when you collect 4 MegaJackpots symbols on a single spin. These symbols can appear when special transforming star symbols make an appearance.
You could win this amazing prize with any real money bet, but remember that the higher your stake, the better your chances of triggering the progressive prize.
With impressive looks and innovative features for its time, MegaJackpots Star Lanterns is a highlight of the IGT progressive jackpot series. I was instantly enchanted by the image of hundreds of Chinese lanterns floating above a still lake and the same pleasing quality is captured in the interesting game symbols. I landed a great series of wins thanks to the multiplier and Floating Reels features working together. The progressive jackpot is the goal if you take this title on and with an average payout of over $1.4 million, there’s a lot to play for. If you enjoy beautiful Asian aesthetics with your slot play, give Gold Money Frog or Double Lucky Line a go.
