Leading game developer Yggdrasil has partnered with Peter & Sons for new video slot, Monster Blox Gigablox.
The brand new game sees several heroes gather at an old tavern as they plot to hunt down the monsters threatening their land. Monster Blox Gigablox uses a 6×4 layout with 40 paylines in the base game, and up to 100 via the respins features.
The game has an RTP of 96.1%, and it requires a bet of between £0.20 and £100. The slot’s symbols include a red monster, a purple monster, a green monster, a blue monster, and the heart, spade, clover, and diamond symbols. There are also Respin and Wild symbols too.
The Monster Blox Gigablox slot has several special features. For example, the game has Wild symbols that substitute for any symbol except the Scatter symbols. Up to three Wild symbols can randomly appear on any reel to help create additional winning combinations.
The game also has Gigablox symbols of between 2×2 and 6×6. These symbols can appear as ordinary symbols or Scatter symbols, and landing five or more Scatter symbols triggers the Monster Free Spins mode, awarding as many free spins as Scatter symbols.
Landing additional Scatter symbols award more spins, and each Scatter symbol that lands is collected into a meter that increases the feature’s Multiplier of up to 10x your bet. You can purchase the Free Spins mode with your choice of bet, where up to 20 spins are randomly awarded.
There’s also Monster Respins. In the game, every win triggers a respin, and during the respin, the panel grows by one row and 15 paylines. Every new win will trigger a respin and continue growing the reels until it hits the maximum size of 6×8 with 100 paylines. Respins are awarded until there is no win.
Finally, there is a Wild Bounty feature where, on any random spin in the base game, the hunter can transform any symbol into a Wild. Gigablox symbols have a chance to transform and the Wild Bounty mechanic is more likely to occur during the Free Spins mode.
Stuart McCarthy, the Head of Product and Programs at Yggdrasil, said in a statement: “Monster Blox Gigablox brings another epic adventure to our YG Masters offering, needing the bravest in town to fight off some fearsome beasts.
“Using the Gigablox mechanic, along with both a respins and free spins mode, Peter & Sons are again able to create something truly unique in their eye-catching style. We can’t wait to see how players across our network react to it.”
Yann Bautista, the Business Development Manager at Peter & Sons, added: “Monster Blox Gigablox is another forward-thinking, action-packed hit from our team and we’re very proud of it. With guaranteed wins in free spins and a lucrative respins mode, every spin can lead to huge wins.
“It is another exciting game released as part of the YG Masters program and we’re eager to continue achieving milestones together. We’ve enjoyed a strong relationship with Yggdrasil and we see the opportunity to utilise its high-performing frameworks strategically throughout our roadmap.”
