Yggdrasil, the developer of popular online Casino slots, is always looking to launch new innovative game features to enhance the player experience. This time, the developer has partnered with Bang Bang Games, a YG Maters studio member, to release Jokrz Wild UltraNudge Gigablox. The game continues the trending Jokrz Wild series while delivering new and exciting elements.
Jokrz Wild UltraNudge Gigablox evokes the classic memories of fruit-themed slots. You’ll find fruit symbols like oranges, berries, cherries, melons, bells, bars, sevens, and stars. Players can land at least three of these symbols on the 6×4 game board to unlock a 0.1x to 5x payout. Note that the game has up to 40 pay lines, making the action even more rewarding.
But this fruit-themed slot comes with interesting contemporary twists and turns. Yggdrasil’s well-liked GigaBlox Game Engagement Mechanic (GEM) is the most popular addition to this slot machine. This feature allows two reels to merge during the spins and create an enormous 2×2, 3×3, or 4×4 symbol.
The UltraNudge feature can also activate whenever players form a win that has a wild symbol. If this happens, the wild Joker will nudge the reels down by one space as long as you keep accumulating those wins. This can result in extended winning streaks, taking you closer to the 7,216x top payout when combined with the GigaBlox mechanic.
Additionally, multiplier symbols can appear on any reel, boosting the value of the active bet by 1x to 3x. Remember that these multipliers do not reset during the free spins and remain functional after an UltraNudge win.
As the gameplay gets more rewarding, players can unlock the free spins mode by landing at least five bonus symbols. You will start with 5 free spins before winning an extra spin for each additional bonus symbol that hits. Also, the multipliers will significantly rise, and the UltraNudge feature will become active after every victory instead of waiting for the Joker wilds.
Before the start of the free spins mode, this fruit machine also includes the Gamble option. If players successfully gamble, they will receive a starting multiplier of 2x, and the game will double all the multipliers accumulated in the bonus rounds. Even better, players in some jurisdictions can directly progress to the free spins round using the Bonus Buy feature.
Stuart McCarthy, Yggdrasil’s Head of Product & Programs, commented:
“Jokrz Wild UltraNudge GigaBlox incorporates two incredibly popular mechanics, and an exhilarating retro theme, into one fantastic package for players to enjoy. The YG Masters program continues to facilitate the creation of excellent games, and Bang Bang Games has been able to bring its unique style and feel to the wider industry due to it.”
On their part, Frank McPolin, Managing Director at Bang Bang Games, added:
“Jokrz Wild UltraNudge GigaBlox brings a combination of strong-performing mechanics, a proven theme and fantastic win potential in one great game. We’re very proud of our continued work as part of the YG Masters initiative, and we’re able to utilise the GEMs to expand on our bold ideas to create great games for our fans globally.”
