Yggdrasil, the leading worldwide publisher of online gambling content, has embarked on its latest adventure with Peter & Sons in the shining new slot Dragon Blox GigaBlox.

The 6×6 grid features the hugely popular Game Engagement Mechanic (GEM) GigaBlox, which sees at least one giant symbol land on every spin, offering players significantly increased win potential. 

The reels are filled with a band of brave adventurers, gleaming symbols and wilds, all while a fierce sleeping dragon lays surrounded by its treasure hoard behind the matrix.

The 50-payline game offers both Monster free spins and Lock’N Blox bonus features. Monster free spins are triggered when six or more free spin symbols land on a single spin. During the bonus, every new scatter in view awards an additional spin, and players may unlock the Lock’N Blox round during this. 

Lock’N Blox spins are awarded when six or more coins land in view, triggering a respins-style round. An initial three spins are awarded, resetting when a successful turn of the reels occurs. In addition, coins can merge for giant win potential, offering a multiplier value of up to 5,000x.

Dragon Blox GigaBlox boasts both a Golden Bet feature, which increases the chances of the bonus mode being won for a larger stake, and a Buy feature, to progress directly to either of the two rounds.

Dragon Blox GigaBlox is powered by GATI, Yggdrasil’s state-of-the-art technology enabling partners to employ the preconfigured, regulation-ready, standardised development toolkit to consistently produce cutting-edge content followed by rapid distribution.

Commenting on the new title, Stuart McCarthy, head of product and programmes at Yggdrasil, said: “Our YG Masters programme has entered its fourth year and we’re delighted to be collaborating with Peter & Sons for another mythical masterpiece, Dragon Blox GigaBlox.

“Combining their unmistakable art style with exciting mechanics and bonus features is a winning formula, and we’re very happy with our latest launch.”

Yann Bautista, business development manager at Peter & Sons, said: “Last year saw us come on in leaps and bounds as a studio, and we’re thrilled to hit the ground running in 2023 with Dragon Blox GigaBlox. It builds on what we’re trying to deliver to players, while utilising another of Yggdrasil’s fantastic GEMs to give a player-favourite experience.”
