Heading back to a pristine paradise, the popular Tiki masks return on a 6×4 grid, offering 4,096 ways to win, while GigaBlox, one of Yggdrasil’s leading Game Engagement Mechanics (GEMs), ensures that a supersized symbol lands on every spin.

The colourful title also features a cascading reel mechanic, where after two or more successful combinations, low-paying symbols start to be removed from the reels. The more winning tumbles, the more icons are removed, until only Tiki masks remain.

To the left of the reels is a totem pole which is the key to the unique Win it Again feature, the Tiki Prize. This feature offers a win-now prize, initially set at 20x, but can increase depending on the max win. Any time a boomerang lands on the reels, it is thrown to the left, potentially knocking over the totem and awarding a prize.

Five or more bonus symbols are required to launch the bonus round, where up to 24 spins can be awarded. During the free spins mode, an incremental multiplier is applied, increasing by 1x every spin.

In certain jurisdictions, players can progress directly to the free spins through one of four buy bonus options, offering more spins for an increased cost, or a lucky dip option which randomises the number of spins added.

Tiki Runner GigaBlox is the latest game developed by Bulletproof Games as part of the YG Masters programme, after the success of Tiki Runner 2 DoubleMax.

The title is powered by GATI, with 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.

Mark McGinley, chief gaming officer at Yggdrasil, said: “A follow up to our holiday hit Tiki Runner 2 DoubleMax, we return to the tropical isles in our latest collaboration with Bulletproof Games. 

“With an exciting take on our GEM GigaBlox, a symbol-remove mechanic and an increasing multiplier, it is an action-packed adventure that isn’t to be missed!” 

Michael Bullock, product director at Bulletproof Games, said: “We are thrilled to launch a sequel to one of our most popular titles in latest launch Tiki Runner GigaBlox. Through the YGG Masters programme, we’re able to take original concepts and build engaging mechanics into them, producing games that appeal to ever widening audiences, combining our fantastic feel with proven features. It is another game we’re extremely proud of and we are confident players will love it.”
