Design and Symbols
Lightning box designed Eagle Sun to follow a native American, Eagle themed slot. Set in the open lands, to the left of the reels the tribe’s teepee tents stand.
The soundtrack to the slot is very fitting to the theme of the slot. Played by several instruments an eagle squawk across the top of the native music. The instrumentals themselves are very relaxing and soothing to the ear, however, the eagle can become slightly irritating.
The highest paying symbols are displayed by three different Native American members of the tribe along with a dream catcher and a set of wooden hand drums.
The lowest paying symbols are decorated with tribal memorabilia and consist of 10, J, Q, K and A.
Eagle Sun slot game was not a slot I was overly impressed by. Not only did the slot have no WOW factor to it, the graphics and design also lacked.
I liked the theme of the slot and thought a little more innovative thought could have gone into the features and the design as it lacked some charm… or something!
On the bright side, I’m sure we will be seeing some more releases from Lightning Box in the near future which hopefully will be a step up.
