X Factor Steps to Stardom is a first slot machine developed by IGT from the X Factor series. It was followed by two more games, which were are equally successful.
It is very hard for the companies to decide which game should have a sequel and to get transformed into the series or a trilogy. The IGT company was very brave for doing it for the game devoted to a singing show, but they made the right choice.
The first one had a breakthrough as soon as it appeared on the UK market, as people from all around the globe got addicted to it. It was made at the time when X Factor was incredibly popular, which made it even easier to reach the entire world.
All three game kept the same structure:
- Five reels;
- Three reels;
- Fifteen payline, which can all be turned off or on by the players.
Even though the theme is the same one for all three games, each one had new characters, presented a new season of the show and had improved graphics. 3D effects and animations were implemented in the second one, while this release went without those because it was not that easy to put in back then.
