Light & Wonder, Inc. (NASDAQ and ASX: LNW), along with its subsidiaries, introduces Smash Nudge Skillstar, an exciting new release from Lightning Box, one of Light & Wonder's in-house studios.
Set in a futuristic roller derby arena, Smash Nudge Skillstar is a captivating 4x5 slot game featuring a thrilling Free Games round that rewards players with up to 20 Free Games. The Free Games round includes a multiplier wheel, with prizes multiplied by up to 10x on each spin. Additionally, a Wild Nudge feature nudges adjacent symbols off the grid, making room for more Wild Nudge tiles to fill the reels.
To trigger the Free Games feature, players need to land three, four, or five Scatter symbols, with five Scatters granting the maximum of 20 Free Games. During the Free Games mode, Scatters can retrigger, providing an additional 20 Free Games.
In the base game, the Wild Nudge operates similarly to Free Games, replacing adjacent symbols with other Wild Nudges, leading to potential wins.
The SKILLSTAR™ feature is a play-for-fun bonus where players can test their skills by dodging opposing players, navigating through oil spills, and collecting gold trophies to achieve the highest score on the leaderboard.
Smash Nudge Skillstar is accessible to Light & Wonder's OPENGAMING™ platform users, alongside other popular titles like STELLAR CASH DRAGON PALACE™ and BLOOMIN’ BUNNIES™.
Initially, the game will be exclusively available to Kindred and 32 Red in Europe and the UK, with plans for a broader release in all markets.
Michael Maokhamphiou, Operations Manager at Lightning Box, commented: "Smash Nudge Skillstar is our latest standout release, featuring a unique Free Games round that will captivate players. The game's stunning visuals combined with thrilling gameplay will keep players engaged."
Rob Procter, VP of Game Development at Light & Wonder, added: "Lightning Box has created an impressive title that will leave a lasting impact on players worldwide. The Free Games mode offers numerous opportunities for exciting prizes, presenting a modern twist on a classic feature."
