MegaJackpots Star Lanterns

Megajackpots Star Lanterns slots is a 5 reel, 20 pay line slot machine with a unique feel. It's got a clear Asian culture theme, with symbols written on paper lanterns including fish, dragons and other characters from the Chinese Zodiac, with lotuses, and more elaborate paper lanterns forming their own symbols. The rule here is 'the more fancy the lantern, the bigger the bonus'.

When you play Megajackpots Star Lanterns slots you'll see a gentle backdrop of rippling purple waters, which the symbols hover over. When you hit play, symbols float up from the bottom of the screen, rather than being spun in on traditional reels. This is a game that encourages thoughtful play and the strategic building up of wins and multipliers, rather than simply hitting the play button again and again.

Playing Megajackpots Star Lanterns slots online offers the possibility of big wins: when your symbols line up, the matching symbols disappear after your win has been banked, allowing new symbols to appear and take their place. This creates the chance for cascading chain reactions of matches reminiscent of popular match 3 games which see your jackpot rocket up.

It also has a Free Spins feature that's genuinely rewarding: all you need to do is gather three scatter symbols across your three reels and you get to choose a lantern that could reveal up to 14 free spins. These spins are taken on a separate board, rich in bonus symbols, allowing you stack up even more multipliers: the only thing you can't do with your free spins is activate another free spin mode.

When you play Megajackpots Star Lanterns slots online you have a chance of winning a life changing fortune - which is appropriate for the theme! IGT's Megajackpots line of games offer a progressive jackpot, which mean the higher your stake, the greater the chance you have of winning really big. Line up 4 Megajackpots symbols in the same spin to win: you have additional chances to get this incredible combination as the Star bonus symbol can sometimes reveal a Megajackpots symbol instead its usual multiplier bonus.

MegaJackpots Progressive

The MegaJackpots progressive jackpot can be won when four MegaJackpots symbols are found and collected during any base game spins, or in the free spins bonus. After every spin that doesn't award the jackpot a behind the scenes Second Chance drawing occurs that can also award the MegaJackpots progressive.

The MegaJackpots progressive jackpot is available to be won on any bet stake, with 3.5% of the stake being shared across the Progressive Pot and Reserve Pot. The player's stake funds both the Progressive Pot and the Reserve Pot. When the jackpot is won, it is reset to the Reserve Pot amount of 500,000 in base currency (i.e. £500,000), and begins to rise again.

In an exceptionally rare case, two players may simultaneously win MegaJackpots. The order of the winners is determined solely by the timestamp applied to each transaction request as it is received by the MegaJackpots server. The official MegaJackpots winning outcome belongs to the player whose transaction timestamp is first. The player whose timestamp is second may win the jackpot Re-Seed Amount if their MegaJackpots winning outcome occurred just after the other player's MegaJackpots win, but before the MegaJackpots meter was able to reset. While the game is live, its jackpots cannot be terminated. If the game is removed, the outstanding pool amount can be transferred to another jackpot.

The expected payback reflects the theoretical return across a very large number of plays by numerous players over an extended period of time. The expected payback includes the positive effect of the jackpot. The larger the jackpot, the larger the expected return. At reset, the jackpot is 500,000 in base currency (i.e. £500,000). The average expected return including the jackpot is 92.48%.

The odds of winning the Jackpot are exactly proportional to the actual bet amount. Therefore, the game is completely fair, offering the same odds per amount bet per currency. For example, a player playing at a 0.20 line bet has twice the chance of winning the Jackpot as a player playing at a 0.10 line bet in the same game and currency. The expected return to player is exactly the same for both players.

Star Multiplier Feature
Each Star scatter symbol awards a random 2x, 3x, or 5x multiplier and pays a scatter win. If two or more Star scatter symbols appear during a single spin and across floats, as a result of the Floating Reels feature, the multiplier values are added. After awarding a multiplier, the Star scatter symbol bursts causing symbols to float up from below for more chances to win. At the end of the spin, the total win amount (excluding the MegaJackpots progressive) is multiplied by the total multiplier value.

Each Star scatter symbol may also reveal a MegaJackpots symbol. (see Winning the MegaJackpots Progressive)

Free Spins Bonus
The Free Spins Bonus is triggered by three Bonus scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the first three reels. These symbols are only found on reels 1, 2, and 3.

Select one of the three lanterns from the picker to reveal the number of free spins (between 4 and 14) awarded for the bonus.

The reels in the Free Spins Bonus have a richer, more frequent Star Multiplier feature than the base game reels. There are no Bonus symbols on the Free Spins Bonus reels; therefore the bonus cannot be retriggered.

Reels used in the Free Spins Bonus are different from the reels used in the base game.

Free spins are played at same line bet as the triggering spin.

When you win the Jackpot, a message appears notifying you that customer service will contact you within 24 hours with details of your Jackpot payout. The win verification may take up to 72 hours, and the win will not be reflected in your account balance. You may continue to play. It will not affect your Jackpot.

The amount paid after verification is approximately the amount seen on the Jackpot meter when the win occurs. Potentially, the awarded Jackpot could be somewhat higher because of display delays. The Jackpot paid may also be higher due to meter smoothing, when some meter growth from peak times may be spread across slower periods. In an exceptionally rare case, the award value could be the Jackpot seed amount if your Jackpot winning outcome occurred just after another player's Jackpot win but before the Jackpot meter was able to reset due to this earlier winner.

All applicable taxes and fees in connection with any winnings awarded to the player, and any other payments to the winning player are his/her sole responsibility. Winnings cannot be transferred, substituted, or redeemed for any other consideration.

The casino may deactivate this game at any time. If the casino decides to continue the game after a Jackpot is won, the casino is under no obligation to re-seed the Jackpot with the amount of the previous seed or any other amount. In the event that the casino decides to terminate the game, or the game becomes permanently unavailable due to unforeseeable circumstances, the casino holds any funds shown in the Jackpot meter. The casino may increase or decrease the size of the Jackpot award by contributing or removing money at any time.

Jackpot represents an increasing top award where the growth is funded by a fixed percentage of each bet placed by all players playing for the jackpot.

In some jurisdictions, regardless of bet size, there is an award cap on any single transaction, excluding the MegaJackpots progressive. See the paytable for details. A transaction includes the results of the Free Spins Bonus, plus the outcome which launched the bonus. If the award cap is reached in the bonus, the bonus ends immediately, even if there are remaining free spins.

Additional Information
Lost Connection During Jackpot Win
In the unlikely event of a lost connection or game reset during a jackpot-triggering spin, the jackpot will be awarded.

Notification of the jackpot win will not appear on the game screen when the game is reloaded, and the win will not be reflected in your account balance. Any standard wins will be reflected in your account balance. Continued play, whether in this game or any other, does not affect the jackpot payout.

The Customer Service Team will contact you within 24 hours with the details of your jackpot payout. The award verification may take up to 72 hours.

Expected Payback
In accordance with fair gaming practices required in most legal jurisdictions worldwide, each and every game outcome is completely independent. The odds of getting any particular outcome are always the same.

The odds do not vary based on prior outcomes, bet size (except for the Jackpot), balance size, time of day, day of week, etc. For example, if the top award is won on a given play of the game, the chances of winning the top award on the next play are exactly the same. Likewise, prior losses do not change future odds.

The expected payback reflects the theoretical return across a very large number of plays by numerous players over an extended period of time. The results for any given player over a play session can vary widely from this long-term, expected average in either direction. The fewer the number of games played, the wider the normal variance of actual payback that may be experienced.RTP=92.48%.
