Yggdrasil takes players to the beach in Easter Island 2

Updated theme and feature set takes popular title to a new level

Yggdrasil, the leading worldwide publisher of online gambling content, has brought back its iconic Moai statue duo, and this time they’re going on an epic holiday in Easter Island 2.

The latest voyage takes the duo and their bird sidekick to trendy Venice Beach where they are surrounded by sand, palm trees and parasols. Easter Island 2 is packed with vacation vibes for players to chill out to. But don’t get too relaxed. Those seeking exciting gameplay and great win potential are sure to find it.

Players can blow the roof off this LA adventure when a six-of-a-kind win triggers expanding reels, seeing the grid grow to an 8×6 matrix, with 55 paylines possible for the winning respin.

Any winning spin awards a symbol swap respin which sees the winning symbol replace all low-paying equivalents, and also increasing win potential during respins. Wins of four, five or six in a row are awarded a colossal symbol, with bigger wins leading to larger symbols. A wild colossal symbol can also land on any spin leading to huge cash prizes. 

Easter Island 2 features characters and symbols that players will be familiar with from the hit prequel but with an updated theme and feature set which takes the title to a new level. 

The game joins established hits such as the Vikings series, Multifly and Hades Gigablox in Yggdrasil’s high-performing games portfolio.

Commenting on the new release, Asko Heiskanen, chief gaming and development officer at Yggdrasil, said: “The mischievous Moai are back and full of action. Every win triggers a respin which can lead to exceptional rewards. Watch out for a six-of-a-kind win which will trigger expanding reels. They’ll boom to a sky-high 8×6 matrix with 55 paylines, which means not only more, but bigger wins. Features aside, the game’s layout has been designed with players completely in mind. We understand players’ mobile-first, portrait preference, so we build the games’ UX totally around them.

“Easter Island 2 will see players enjoying every step with our favourite characters from a classic and well-loved Yggdrasil title.”
