Light & Wonder in-house studio launches first Keno game

One of Light & Wonder’s in-house studios, Lightning Box, has released its first table game which includes a bonus-enhanced Keno title. 

With a grid of 80 possible number choices, players can choose between 3 and 10 numbers, which determine the volatility as well as house edge or RTP

20 numbers will then be displayed on the grid, which are produced thanks to the game’s RNG system. Players who don’t want to choose their own numbers, can instead use the Quick Pick feature.

Some of the numbers drawn can have the company’s lightning bolt symbol on them. A lightning bonus respin round is triggered when six or more of these numbers appear.

This game also contains four jackpots (Mini, Minor, Major, and Grand) that can be awarded as well if they appear on the 2×2 or 3×3 colossal symbols appearing on the reels.

This can reset the respin count to three when numbers land in an active reel.

In comments made after the game was announced, Lightning Box Operations Manager, Michael Maokhamphiou said: “Keno is our first table game, and we are thrilled to couple the unique gameplay offered by this title with our player favourite mechanic lightning respin.”

Maokhamphiou added that, “providing players with the bonus round found within popular titles … in conjunction with the table gameplay of Keno has produced a title with universal appeal that we are excited to see players receive.”

Meanwhile, Rob Procter, VP of Game Development at Light & Wonder commented that, “Keno demonstrates Lightning Box’s flexibility to produce engaging and entertaining titles, with this being the first table game created by the studio. They have blended a traditional table game with the much-adored lightning respin mechanic that we are confident players will enjoy.”
