Scientific Games, doing business as Light & Wonder, is inviting players on an intergalactic adventure in its latest title, “Stargate Megaways.” 

The first game to be released on OpenGaming under the new Light & Wonder name, the slot game is based on MGM’s sci-fi fantasy film, “Stargate,” boasting imagery and characters from the franchise, as well as innovative features and mechanics.  

In “Stargate Megaways,” players are tasked with working their way up a “Stargate” trail every time they register a consecutive win, unlocking modifiers and one of three free spins rounds. When the fifth segment of the trail is reached a random modifier will be activated, which boosts their chances of triggering up to seven free spins. 

Modifiers include random wilds, wild reels, expanding reels, mystery symbols and regenerate, which clears the game grid and sees a re-spin occur with the same number of Megaways in place. 

Should the seventh, eighth or ninth segment be reached, Star Coordinates will align, allowing

players to step through the gate into distant worlds as they are awarded between five and seven free spins featuring lucrative modifiers. 

“Not only is ‘Stargate Megaways’ Light & Wonder’s flagship release as a new brand, but it’s also set to be our most revolutionary,” says Rob Procter, vice president of game development, Light & Wonder. “We’ve flipped the concept of a Megaways slot on its head, this game is nothing like you’ll have played before from a Megaways title and we think it’ll prove to be a big hit. ‘Stargate’ has been going for almost 30 years now and there are still people of all ages that love the franchise, so we’re incredibly excited to bring it to a new medium. Light & Wonder has great ambitions to solidify itself as the leading cross-platform global game company and releasing a slot that’s truly out of this world is the right way to go about that.”
