Stars align in a galactic halo and volcanoes erupt with electrified excitement in Star Watch Fire, Konami’s new addition to its new Star Watch series. The built-in progressive for the Stack & Crescent cabinet, showcased at NIGA 2018, features a new betting structure for players to bet more for a greater chance of a higher jackpot.
The game uses a similar Strike Zone™ game mechanic to Celestial Sun Riches and Celestial Moon Riches, but instead of activating a central reel section, players increase their bet to activate entire reel strips from left to right, up to the entire frame. Any prize symbols that land in the Strike Zone award a random credit prize or a wheel spin bonus with guaranteed Mini, Major, Mega, or Maxi jackpot. A player’s selected Strike Zone is also active during the free games, where prize symbols nudge to the fill the entire reel with individual prizes, bonuses, and progressives.
Luminous stars reward credit prizes, progressive wins and bonus prizes, which may award wheel spins of a greater magnitude. In this game, Line and Scatter wins during the free games are 2X and Action Stacked Symbols appear on all reels. The title is available in Fixed 25 Line configurations with forced Extra Bet (depending on the reels activated).
