Yggdrasil publishes new GATI-powered video slot from YG Masters studio partner Peter & Sons- Water Blox Gigablox
Yggdrasil has launched the latest contribution from YG Masters partner Peter & Sons, , which is the second title from the Armenia-based development studio to incorporate the popular game engagement mechanic (GEM).
The high volatility, GATI-powered video slot has a 96 percent RTP and features a graphics story unique to the developer along with Wild Re-Spins and a Monster Free Spins bonus game that features a potentially lucrative Monster Multiplier and a 7500x max win.
The 6×6, 50-payline game grid sits atop a pond that is fed by the falls and where giant sea creatures travel from the deep blue and into the fjords where the forests of Walarya end. Here, players are invited to join a mystical shaman, who stands to the right of the game panel wearing a fish suit, to catch these odd-looking beasts for big rewards.
Game Payline & Wild:
Wins are awarded when players land three or more of the same symbol from the left side on a payline to the right. The game includes 8 regular paying symbols, with spade, club, heart and diamond card values serving as the lower pays and are worth 0.8x the bet for landing a line of six. Four premium symbols include a frog, a pufferfish, a purple fish, and a really cool octopus, which pay 2 to 10 times the bet for six of a kind.
And an angry and elusive anglerfish serves as the game’s wild. It can land on any reel and replace all paying symbols. If six of the wild symbols hit in a winning line, its value is 10x the bet, the same as the octopus.
During base gameplay, Wild Re-Spins are randomly triggered, turning between one and three symbols wild. Once a win is awarded, a re-spin is triggered where the wilds roam. The number of roaming wilds is determined by the size of the wild symbol, e.g., a 6×6-sized block would award a player six roaming wilds.
Players who are lucky enough to land at least five scatter symbols anywhere on the game grid in the base game will activate the Monster Free Spins bonus game. The number awarded is equal to the number of scatters in view, and any scatter landing in the bonus round awards an additional free spin.
Wild Re-Spins are triggered by every spin during the bonus, while every wild sees points added to a meter which can boost the number of free spins. A Monster Multiplier also sets the stage for a win multiplier to come into play with a maximum of 10x.
Furthermore, each new scatter that lands on the grid also awards an additional free spin.
Commenting on the new game, Yann Bautista, Business Development Manager for Peter & Sons, said…
“We’re immensely proud to work alongside Yggdrasil to create memorable slots such as Water Blox Gigablox™. We’re confident this release will resonate with players and will see them enjoy an incredible gaming experiences.”
Also pleased with the latest YG Masters partnership result, Stuart McCarthy, Head of Product and Programs at Yggdrasil, said…
“We’ve seen some truly fantastic Gigablox slots arrive in casino lobbies since the mechanic made its debut in 2020, and the latest release from Peter & Sons sees another fantastic use of our most popular Game Engagement Mechanic.”
Water Blox Gigablox, as mentioned, is the second slot that uses the successful GEM, with Monster Blox, released on November 22, 2021, the first. The game also follows other Peter & Sons titles Wild Duel, Xibalba, Valkyries and others.
Earlier in May, Yggdrasil published the latest hit from YG Masters partner ReelPlay, with the Asian-themed title, Megapearl Gigablox, also powered by the Swedish provider’s GATI technology and featuring a maximum win potential of up to 16,297x the stake.
