The collaboration between slot developer, Lightning Box and Incredible Technologies, is crossing into the online world after setting the land-based casino scene on fire.
Astro Cat, the Asian-themed, five-reel, and 1296 ways slot has been a major hit in U.S. land-based casinos and it has also attracted an army of loyal fans after it went online in Europe.
Incredible Technologies has boosted the original slot with their patented Sky Wheel feature turning Astro Cat into Astro Cat Deluxe propelling it to new heights on casino floors for the past 18 months.
Reimagined and Revamped
While the player-favorite Reelfecta feature from the Lightning Box original is left intact, the highlight of this re-release is the addition of the Sky Wheel feature which activates when five or more Wheel Scatter symbols appear on the reels.
The Wheel will grant many prizes…
…including a progressive jackpot, a credit bonus, or entry into the Astro Cat Bonus. Credit prizes are accompanied by a secondary spin which allows the prize to be further multiplied.
The Astro Cat Bonus is also slightly reworked but retains all the excitement and fun of the original.
This new and enhanced version will appeal both to new players and old fans of this game.
A Successful Partnership:
Peter Causley, the Co-Founder of Lightning Box, remarked that the collaboration would further solidify the company’s commitment to true multi-channel offerings, as they look to bring the best ideas online from other verticals and markets.
He also added: “We’re really pleased to have teamed-up with Incredible Technologies for Astro Cat Deluxe, which is an exciting fusion of slot IP.
“The original game has been a real hit across the board and the Deluxe version has shown some stellar performance in the USA since its launch late 2017. We’re confident that the online release will also deliver similar success for our online operating partners.”
Dan Schrementi, VP of Gaming Sales and Marketing at Incredible Technologies, said: “The original Astro Cat is a proven performer and a staple in our catalog of games. The addition of the extremely popular Sky Wheel feature puts Astro Cat Deluxe in a new spotlight and we’re excited to see it offered across land-based and online gaming channels.”
