Yggdrasil set for interstellar adventure in Giganimals Gigablox
Yggdrasil, the leading publisher accelerating igaming innovation, has blasted off into outer space with its latest launch, Giganimals GigaBlox.
The six-reel, 40-payline title features the hugely popular GigaBlox game engagement mechanic (GEM), which sees supersized symbols land on the reels, potentially reaching up to 6×6 in size.
The action-packed game features two types of free spins modes. A wild surge can occur on any spin, turning one of the four low-paying icons into wilds for huge wins.
Throughout base gameplay, each low-paying symbol not only pays out for winning combinations, but also adds to a spaceship collection meter, giving players the opportunity to build up to a free spins bonus. Each of the four animals have their respective collection meter, starting at different amounts at the beginning of the game.
These meters fill up according to how many symbols are in the winning combination, encouraging players to root for their favourite farm animal. If one of the spaceship meters is filled, the collection free spins mode is activated. The triggering symbol will act as a wild throughout the bonus.
The meters can be filled for the duration of the free spins, giving further opportunity for more low-paying symbols to become wilds, as players chase the max win of 5,120x.
Giganimals GigaBlox also boasts scatter-triggered free spins, further increasing player engagement. Before entering this round, players can opt to utilise the gamble wheel for more spins. In certain jurisdictions, players can progress to the free spins mode directly via the two buy features.
Stuart McCarthy, head of product and programmes at Yggdrasil, said: “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.”
