Buoyed by the ongoing success of its two wide-area progressive (WAP) jackpots, Sun International unleashes a third, The Lion’s Share.

The new WAP, designed exclusively for Sun International, went live across seven of Sun International’s 12 casinos countrywide by the first week of December 2016. These include GrandWest (Western Cape); Carnival City (Gauteng), Sibaya (KwaZulu-Natal), Flamingo (Kimberley), Meropa (Limpopo), Windmill (Free State) and Wild Coast Sun (Eastern Cape). The Lion Share will go live at the rest of Sun International’s South African casino properties in early 2017.

“Sun International is the only casino group in South Africa that has wide-area linked progressive jackpot machines across most of its properties,” said Bianco Marini, group slots manager for Sun International in a prepared statement. “Our existing WAP jackpots, Duma and SunStriker, are amongst the most popular and played slots games in the country and we wanted to give our customers more of what they really enjoy. The Lion’s Share promises chances to win more often. With Lion’s Share banks linked across the country, the jackpots increase rapidly.” 

The Lion’s Share is an African-themed slot game which has three levels of progressive jackpots and a host of new and funky twists to keep players on the edges of their seats. These include free games, wild symbols, stacked symbols and last but not least, The Lion’s Share feature. This feature has two stages. In the first, the player wins a cash prize, or if they are lucky, the chance to proceed to stage two where they are guaranteed to win one of three jackpots.
