With this game, IGT takes one of its most iconic classic stepper games and adds modern, video-style elements in a recipe that results in a versatile new game, available in either a classic high-denomination version with five paylines or a low-denomination version with 25 paylines.
The basic Triple Stars game retains its traditional strengths—notably, the classic multiplying wild symbol. The familiar Triple Stars 7 symbol is wild, and multiplies the pay by three in winning combinations. Two of the wild symbols in a win multiply the pay by nine.
To this traditional game mechanic is added more video-like features like random multipliers on base-game combinations and, as the game title says, in free games.
The random multiplier feature, called Spitfire Multipliers, sends random bright flaming colored multipliers into the top box on a transparent video monitor over the reels, turning the reels ablaze to the tune of the hit funk song “Shining Star.”
The free games bonus offers seven initial free games with the possibility for retriggers. The player is also awarded a random multiplier between 2X and 7X, each with an associated color.
The funk tune, the free games and all the multipliers combine into a completely new version of a classic game. It is available to casinos in multi-denomination setup, with a mix of traditional high-denomination five-line and video-style low-denomination, 25-line versions.
