Lightning Box signs IP cross-licensing deal

21 February 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Specialist slots developer Lightning Box has signed a cross-licensing deal with American land-based supplier Incredible Technologies to add an exciting new feature to one of its most popular games.

Astro Cat, the Asian-themed, five-reel, 1,296-ways slot, has proven to be a major hit in U.S. land-based casinos and has attracted an army of fans after going online in Europe.

At G2E in Las Vegas last October, it was boosted by Incredible Technologies' patented Sky Wheel feature, creating "Astro Cat Deluxe," and attracted further success on the casino floor.

Now with this new deal, Astro Cat Deluxe will be made available to Lightning Box's clients in online real-money gaming and social casino.

The exciting feature is triggered when five Sky Wheel symbols appear within the ReelFecta reel, setting the giant wheel above them spinning. Players can then win a jackpot, entry into the Astro Cat Bonus or a credit prize. Any credit prize is accompanied by a secondary spin of a small inner wheel for the opportunity to win a credit multiplier up to 5x, or a respin of the giant Sky Wheel.

Peter Causley, Lightning Box's Managing Director and Co-Founder, said the new collaboration would further solidify Lightning Box's commitment to a true multi-channel offering as they look to bring the best gaming ideas online from other verticals and geographical markets.

He 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 early performance in the U.S. since its launch late last year. We're confident that the new game 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."

Astro Cat, which had an exclusive online launch with Mr Green Casino in October 2016, also uses Lightning Box's patented Reelfecta super reel, giving players 16 chances to win on the middle reel, as well as a Mega Spin where all 16 positions are wild.
