Because you can see through the reels, it feels as though you're in a sailing boat floating serenely across the water.

Bonuses and Special Features

The large red paper lantern is the wild symbol, and it can replace any symbol other than the Star, the Lotus Flower, and the MegaJackpots logo if it can help to create a win.
The Star Multiplier symbol awards two times your line bet in both the base game and the Free Spins Bonus when it forms part of a winning combo. It also has the potential to transform into the MegaJackpots symbol, and you only need to collect four MegaJackpots symbols on any spin to win the progressive jackpot. You can also win the jackpot through the Second Chance Feature, which is a behind-the-scenes drawing that's performed after every spin. By playing with larger bets, you can boost your chances of triggering the drawing.

Every Star Multiplier symbol awards a two times, three times or five times multiplier, and when more than one appears on the reels, the multiplier values are added together. N.B., the Star Multiplier can only appear on Reels 1, 2, and 3.
MegaJackpots Star Lantern also boasts a popular IGT feature called Floating Reels, which causes the symbols used in wins to disappear, and let their empty spaces be taken by symbols floating up from the bottom of the reels. The Floating Reels Feature continues so long as new winning combinations can be created.
