Kalamba Games returns to its fearsome franchise Joker Lanterns and integrates a new fan favourite feature into the game, with the launch of Joker Lanterns Hold and Win.
This Halloween-themed title is home to various fruit, bars and seven symbols across 40 paylines, along with multiplier wilds that substitute for all icons in the base game.
Players have direct control over the size of the multiplier attached to each wild via Kalamba’s HyperBet mechanic, which allows players to influence their bet amount and dramatically increase them by up to 10x. This blends risk and reward with the wider strategy-based gameplay to add weight to the spooky, seasonal theme.
Increasing the multiplier wilds will also increase the number of free spins awarded on landing at least three scatters, up to a maximum of 12. In the bonus, players must collect three additional scatters to unlock an extra three spins gaining more opportunities to land a big win.
Additionally, the Hold and Win feature is triggered for landing at least six special symbols in the base game – landing four or five of these will grant their combined instant cash value as a prize. In the Hold and Win bonus, players are granted three respins which are retriggered for each subsequent special symbol landed. These can contain Cashpot prizes with the feature also being able to be triggered whilst already in the free spins round.
This Halloween-themed release concurrently expands the Joker Lanterns franchise and the Hold and Win mechanic that has played a pivotal part in Kalamba’s Q4 successes featuring in recent releases like Diamond Supreme Hold and Win, Blazing Spirit Hold and Win and Moonrise Fortune Hold and Win.
Alex Cohen, COO and Co-Founder at Kalamba Games, said: “The Joker Lanterns series always proves popular around the Halloween season with the slot having enough innovation and replayability to be a draw for players year-round. Upgrading the core mechanics with the release of Joker Lanterns Hold and Win will provide even more thrills for players to enjoy.
“With two distinct bonus rounds, instant cash prizes to be won and the ability to control how much of a risk players want to take on each spin, we’re confident players are going to enjoy the pumpkin-themed gameplay on offer.”
