Low value symbols in the game come in the form of the high end of a deck of cards with a J through to A. These symbols can offer between x0.25 and x2 the player’s stake, depending on the amount of winning combinations that land on a single spin.

Medium value symbols are represented by cherries, grapes, oranges, watermelons and bells. If the right amount of matching combinations land in one go then these symbols can offer between x0.1 and x15 the player’s bet.

The lucky seven is the high paying symbol, offering between x0.25 and x30 the player’s stake, depending on the amount of paying combinations that land on one turn. This seven also acts as a wild, substituting for all symbols other than the scatters and other wilds.

The other wilds are represented by two sevens and a bunch of three sevens. These wilds act as x2 and x3 multipliers respectively and substitute for all symbols other than the scatter.. 

A lightning bolt scatter is also included, with six or more needing to land on a single spin in order to trigger a free spins lightning round.


During the lightning free spins bonus, only cash value symbols can drop onto the reels and three respins are awarded to the player initially.

Random reels between one and five are then chosen to be activated for the respins, with an electrical border indicating which reels are active. If a cash value drops into one of the active reels then an additional three respins will be awarded to the player and the cash value will be added to the payout of the respins.

Colossal cash value symbols can appear during this bonus mode, being of size 2×2 or 3×3. If a symbol appears as 2×2, then it will split into four symbols and offer x4 it’s showcased cash value, whereas 3×3 will split into six and offer x6. 

Jackpot prizes can also drop into the reels during this mode, offering one of four fixed jackpot prizes. Jackpot symbols can also be colossal, splitting into multiple jackpot prizes to increase the win potential.


Michael Maokhamphiou, Operations Manager at Lightning Box, explained: “Lightning Respin has become a fan-favourite mechanic with the feature now available in some of our most popular titles, including Lightning Gorilla, Lightning Shenlong and now Lightning Blaze.

“This game is inspired by igaming’s land-based heritage yet fires up the classic fruit machine with new features and innovation, whilst providing players with familiar symbols within a timeless theme.”

Rob Procter, VP Game Development at Light & Wonder, commented: “Lightning Blaze will expand Lightning Box’s varied and high-quality portfolio of games. The title incorporates both classic gameplay and modern features which will have universal appeal to players. We are excited to add Lightning Blaze to our OpenGaming platform.”
