Sydney-based online slot specialist Lightning Box has debuted a new innovative mechanic with the recent launch of its newest title Enchanted Waysfecta.
The game is inspired by The Nutcracker ballet. Action takes place against the backdrop of a magical forest where a host of colorful creatures and characters, including a young woman, a wise owl, a key-carrying mouse, and an evil stepmother, navigate players throughout their search for riches.
As mentioned above, the new online slot also marks the debut of Lightning Box’s new Waysfecta mechanic. This new product was designed to deliver up to a whopping 15,552 ways to win.
Enchanted Waysfecta was exclusively rolled out with White Hat Gaming-powered online casinos on Wednesday, July 14, before its general network release across various European markets on July 28.
Based at Sydney’s picturesque King Street Wharf, Lightning Box specializes in the creation and provision of high-quality gaming content that can be found at land-based, online, and social casinos around the world.
The studio was established by iGaming veterans Peter Causley and David Little in 2004, meaning it was one of the earlier developers of content for the then relatively young online gambling industry.
More about the New Game and Mechanic
The young woman icon acts as a Wild in this thrilling new slot. It substitutes for all other symbols popping onto the reels except the scatter (a Bonus symbol) and can appear on all reels except the first one.
When the Bonus symbol lands anywhere on reels three, four, and five, it awards eight free games/spins to the player. In addition, an unlimited multiplier, which starts on reel number one, is available during free games mode and increases by 1x per win.
Reels two, three, and four are Waysfecta reels and comprise a mixture of split and regular icons, offering hefty payouts when the right winning combination is formed.
Commenting on the newest addition to their already exciting portfolio of online casino titles, Lightning Box CEO and founder Peter Causley said that Enchanted Waysfecta is a “charming game” that combines the best of the studio’s design skills with an instantly recognizable forest folklore theme.
He went on to note that they are particularly excited by the roll out of their new mechanic and that they think players are “going to have great fun trying to land the truly big wins.”
The launch of Enchanted Waysfecta comes as the latest big news from Lightning Box amid a busy time for the iGaming content maker. Earlier this month, the company celebrated its Latin American debut with the launch of a couple of its most popular recent titles in Colombia’s regulated digital gaming space with major online gambling operator Betsson.
