Yggdrasil, a leading iGaming technology supplier, has announced a trip to the space with the release of Giganimals Gigablox. This is the newest slot machine from the acclaimed software developer, and it houses the iconic Gigablox Game Engagement Mechanic (GEM), which can expand game symbols to reach 6×6 in size.
With that in mind, the Giganimals Gigablox slot machine features 6 reels and 4 rows. Players can match at least three symbols on 40 adjustable bet lines to receive a payout. You’ll meet the flying animals in outer space with a minimum bet of 0.20 credits and a maximum of 100.
You’ll find the red, green, blue, and purple battery indicators on the reels, representing the game’s low-paying icons. These icons can reward you with 0.2x to 2x the stake for landing at least three of them on the reels. The four coloured aliens are the premium symbols, rewarding gamers with 0.4x to 8x the stake for finding at least three.
The game’s wild symbol is the most flexible, replacing all paying symbols when it lands on the reels. Even better, it’s the game’s highest-paying symbol, rewarding gamers with 1.6x to 20x the stake for collecting at least three wilds. Remember, the Wild Surge feature can trigger during the base game, transforming any low-paying symbol into a wild icon.
Another symbol to look out for in this Yggdrasil slot is the Gigablox icon. This feature can transform any symbol into blocks of 2×2 to 6×6 during the base game. The 6×6 symbol can pay out as regular symbols, whereas the 2×2 block is equivalent to four icons.
Meantime, the spaceship on the left side of the reels is on hand to collect the battery symbols whenever you make a winning combo with these icons. Players receive a single point for each symbol they collect, and the points can be multiplied by 2x to 5x. The Collecting Free Spins feature with 5 and 24 spins will activate when any of the four meters has 480 points.
Another way to activate the bonus spins is by landing five or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. Each symbol rewards gamers with a single spin, with gamers winning two extra spins after filling up any of the meters during the Scatter Free Spins.
As expected, players in specific jurisdictions can buy their way into the free spins with the bonus buy feature. Paying 75x the stake will give you 10 to 24 free spins.
Stuart McCarthy, Yggdrasil’s Head of Product & Programs at Yggdrasil, commented, “Giganimals GigaBlox sees us take one of our most popular GEMs and give it an out-of-this-world makeover. With two Free Spins modes, including an engagement-boosting Collections meter mode, we’re confident it will be another spectacular addition to our portfolio.”
