2022-05-19 – One of the most reliable names in the online gaming industry – Yggdrasil has announced that it has released a new video slot with its YG Masters partner Peter & Sons. It is the second title from the development studio that has incorporated the popular GEM (Game Engagement Mechanic).
This GATI-powered video slot has high volatility and 96% RTP, which is where most Yggdrasil slots are nowadays. Players can also look forward to interesting bonus features such as Wild Re-Spins and Monster Free Spins bonus game, with the maximum win going up to 7,500x the stake.
Water Blox GigaBlox has a 6×6, 50-payline structure, and the graphics are beautiful. You will see giant sea creatures travelling from the deep blue into the fjords where the forests of Walarya end.
Symbols in the Game
Firstly, wins in Water Blox GigaBlox are made when you manage to land at least three matching symbols, starting from the leftmost one. The regular paying symbols in the game are the spade, club, heart, diamond card values (lower paying symbols, for which the worth us up to 0.8x the stake), a frog, a pufferfish, a purple fish, and an octopus (premium symbols, for which prizes can go up to 10x the stake).
Water Blox GigaBlox also has a Wild that is represented by an angry and elusive anglerfish. It can land on any reel and it has the power to replace regular paying symbols. If you manage to get six Wilds in a winning combination, the value is 10x the stake, the same as the octopus.
During the base gameplay, you can randomly activate Wild Re-Spins, where 1-3 symbols can turn into Wilds. Once you secure a win, a re-spin will be activated where all Wilds roam. How many roaming Wilds you get depends on the size of the Wild itself – if you have a 6×6 sized block, you will get six roaming Wilds.
Additionally, punters that get five or more Scatters anywhere on the grid will active the Monster Free Spins bonus round. How many free spins players get will be equal to the number of Scatters in view, with any additional one on the reels giving punters another free spin.
Wild Re-Spins will be activated with each spin during the bonus round, while every Wild will help you collect more points to a meter that can increase the number of free spins. Here, a Monster Multiplier will also come into play, with it going to a maximum of 10x. Furthermore, for every Scatter you land, you will get an additional free spin.
