Yggdrasil launches new slot Big Blox

Big Blox

Game set in ancient Aztec-inspired realm features potential for huge wins

Yggdrasil Gaming is first out of the blocks with an excitement-packed online slot that gives players the chance to win massive prizes in a single spin without having to enter any bonus or free spins rounds.

Big Blox is set in an ancient temple lost in the rainforest, and its immersive soundscape lures players into the game’s atmosphere of adventure from the first moments on the reels.

With 243 different ways to win, the gameplay of this slot is especially catchy. During each spin, a larger block of at least 2×2 identical symbols appears on the screen.

This block can increase in size to up to 5×3 symbols and cover the entire game area, paying out prizes of up to 3,888 times the bet size. It means that with the maximum bet, lucky players can win up to €486,000 in a single spin.

The slot is built on the HTML5 framework iSENSE2.0 that comes with the standard perks – slick user interface, fast download speed, portrait mode and, of course, Yggdrasil’s collections of promotional tools, BOOST™ and BRAG.

Product Owner for Games at Yggdrasil, Jonas Strandman said:

“Big Blox’s combination of captivating mechanics, great visuals and a memorable soundtrack simply makes it a lot of fun to play.

“Each spin teases the player with the hope that the ‘blox’ of identical symbols will grow to cover the entire game screen, with a decent win never far away.

“Combine this constant promise of impressive pay-outs with the game’s 243 different ways of winning, great soundscape and fantastic visuals, and we are sure this game will keep players on the edge of their seats.”

Yggdrasil’s portfolio of licensed slots contains a wide range of popular casino games, including Bicicleta, Wicked Circus, progressive jackpot Joker Millions, and Monkey King.

Its collection of promotional tools, BOOST™, hands operators the power to run a number of features designed to boost engagement and retention, including innovative leaderboard and raffle engines.

Meanwhile the recently launched BRAG tool allows customers to watch replays of winning spins and share them with friends and fans on social channels.
