Swintt and Samurai Studio take a walk on the wild side in Lightning Jungle Hold The Cash

The first Samurai Studio’s game launched via the SwinttStudios platform sees players rumble in the jungle with flash cash prizes, re-spins and max wins of up to 9,016x.

Malta, 25 May 2023: With the innovative SwinttStudios programme offering third-party developers the chance to launch their products via the company’s extensive distribution network, Swintt is delighted to unveil the brand-new Lightning Jungle: Hold The Cash in partnership with Samurai Studio.

The first title in what promises to be a rich and varied line-up of exclusives released by Samurai Studio, Lightning Jungle Hold The Cash is an exciting 5x3 video slot which offers players 234 ways to win. Featuring stunning graphics and a captivating soundtrack, the game takes place in front of a roaring waterfall and features wonders of the natural world like exotic birds, great apes and majestic tigers among its unique symbols.

Where the game really stands out from other releases, however, is in its two rewarding bonus rounds – namely the Lightning Game and the Respin Feature. Dealing with the two in order, the Lightning Game is triggered whenever players land six or more scatter icons anywhere on the base game reels.

Whenever this happens, all triggering symbols will be held in place as players are whisked away to a new enhanced game board displaying two 5x3 reel sets and an additional middle reel. Initially, only the bottom reel set – the Primary Reel – will be available and players will receive three Free Spins.

After each round, the total number of bonus games will reduce by one, but should players land a cash symbol or “All Collect” symbol, these symbols will remain locked in place as the counter is reset. Should players successfully fill the Extra Reels with cash symbols, the Secondary Reel will also become active.

This process will continue until all available bonus games have been used, a “All Collect” symbol lands and all locked cash prizes are awarded, or all reel spaces are occupied with cash symbols. As an additional incentive, if either the Primary Reel or Secondary Reel is completely filled before the end of the feature, all currently locked cash prizes will double in value for an even bigger bonus round payout.

The Respin feature is activated whenever a Scatter Symbol appears in the middle row of reel five. If this happens, the symbol will be duplicated and added to the space directly to the right of the extra reels at the top of the gameboard. After each Respin, the Scatter Symbol will move one position to the left until it disappears from the reels, at which point all collected prizes will be awarded.

David Mann, Chief Executive Officer at Swintt, said: “Through our exciting SwinttStudios initiative, we aim to team up with the hottest up-and-coming studios in the industry and help them get the next top game to market – and in Samurai Studio, we couldn’t have hoped for a better partner to work with.

“As the first game in the Samurai Studio series to be launched via SwinttStudios, Lightning Jungle Hold The Cash, will give players a taste about what this innovative developer is all about. Featuring an exciting Lightning Game and a rewarding re-spin feature, the slot has all the makings of a classic and we’re very much looking forward to seeing it go live across Swintt’s extensive distribution network.”
