Yggdrasil uncovers ancient treasure in Atlantean GigaRise jackpot game

New GigaRise Game Engagement Mechanic guarantees action and big wins

Yggdrasil, the leading worldwide publisher of online gambling content, has unveiled its thrilling deep-sea adventure Atlantean GigaRise, introducing the supplier’s latest proprietary game engagement mechanic.

The new, exciting GigaRise mechanic sees a reel rise one spot at a time to a maximum of eight symbols high when special Trident symbols lands, drastically increasing the ways to win to 32,768 and growing the win potential significantly.

As well as bringing the GigaRise mechanic to the Yggdrasil portfolio for the first time, the new title also features a thrilling jackpot mechanic as players explore a sunken palace. 

Three or more Atlantean shell scatters launch the free spins mode, which see reels rise frequently for more wins, and more bonus games offered along the way to give players a chance to win huge sums. 

If a reel hits its full height and a special Trident-symbol lands, the Ancient Mechanism is unlocked where players can discover a bronze, silver or gold key, which unlocks the bonus chamber. In the free spins mode, activating the same reel twice rewards players with a legendary key.

The bonus chamber is filled with jackpots, with players needing to land a bonus symbol on a winning row to award the associated jackpot. The jackpots are pooled with existing Yggdrasil hit, Jackpot Raiders, giving players massive win chances.

The GigaRise mechanic is the latest to be added to Yggdrasil’s Game Engagement Offering (GEM) which also includes Gigablox, Splitz and MultiMAX. The GEM offering is available to all YG Masters partners who can incorporate the mechanics in its own game development. 

Commenting on the new release, Asko Heiskanen, chief gaming and development officer at Yggdrasil, said: “Our product offering continues to be bolstered by innovative and exciting content and we’re very pleased to launch our GigaRise mechanic for the first time. We continue to release dynamic, industry-leading mechanics and think this will be another fan favourite. 

“Combining the jackpot pool with Jackpot Raiders ensures massive prizes are up for grabs and enables cross-play between a hugely popular title and this new hit, giving our fans more opportunities for big wins than ever before.”
