Yggdrasil has unveiled the latest hit incorporating its iconic GEM mechanic in the outer-space adventure, Suncatcher GigaBlox.
The game incorporates the GigaBlox mechanic which sees a giant symbol on every spin, while also featuring a pays both ways system on the 5×3 grid, with 10 paylines.
Suncatcher GigaBlox also contains a Wild Respins feature, with wilds expanding to fill an entire reel and triggering a respin. Wilds remain sticky during the additional spin, with symbols respinning if a new expanding wild lands.
If all 15 reel spots are filled with wild symbols, not only is a respin triggered, but also an additional win of 500x a players stake is awarded to players on top of their regular winnings.
Yggdrasil’s latest creation also contains a Golden Bet feature which when activated, gives players three times the chance of landing a wild symbol at a cost of double the stake.
Suncatcher GigaBlox is the fourth title in Yggdrasil’s portfolio to incorporate the innovative mechanic, joining Lucky Neko, Hades and Gator Gold. Giglabox is one of four GEMs offered by Yggdrasil and the mechanics are also available to YG Masters partners to incorporate into their own game development, with several suppliers already signing up to the offering.
Stuart McCarthy, Head of Product and Programs at Yggdrasil, said: “We’ve worked extremely hard to incorporate our GigaBlox mechanic into products that appeal to all fans and we’re very pleased to launch Suncatcher GigaBlox. A low-volatility game for players who enjoy smooth gameplay, it’s an immersive journey through the stars in search of huge wilds and even bigger symbols.
“Our GEM offering has been extremely popular since the launch and as well as additional proprietary titles, we are excited to see the introduction of YG Masters titles featuring our mechanics later this year.”
