Yggdrasil lauds “strong addition” to portfolio via new ReelPlay online slot: Megapearl Gigablox
Updated:2024-06-18 16:49    Views:108

Yggdrasil has published the latest hit from YG Masters partner ReelPlay, with the Asian-themed title, Megapearl Gigablox, powered by the Swedish provider’s GATI technology, and featuring a maximum win potential of up to 16,297x the stake.

Playable on any device, the developer‘s low volatility video slot that incorporates the popular games engagement mechanic (GEM) Gigablox, has a 95.03 percent RTP, while 40 fixed paylines cross a 6-reel, 4-row game grid where winning combinations land. Players will need to hit three or more matching symbols on adjacent reels in order to create a winning line.

Symbols & Paytable:

Distinctly Asian-inspired, dragons wrap around pillars on either side of what looks to be a temple that is set high in the mountains, and where the reels take center stage. Four Chinese characters comprise the low pays and are worth 1.25x the stake for landing six-of-a-kind and higher paying lotus flowers, lanterns, gold coins and gold sycees are worth 2.5 to 5x the bet for the same six-of-a-kind.

Helping that along is the dragon symbol, which serves as the game’s Wild and substitutes for all symbols with the exception of the scatter, while bonus respins are triggered by landing shimmering pearls. And thanks to the Gigablox mechanic, at least one giant symbol is guaranteed on every spin.

Respin Bonus & Buy Bonus:

In the base game, landing at least six pearls on the same spin launches the respins bonus round.  When this happens, blocks of pearls can combine to create Mega Pearl symbols.

The bonus spins round starts with three spins, with the respins resetting for each new pearl that lands. Furthermore, if pearl symbols form a square of 2×2 or larger, they combine to create those Mega Pearl symbols, the value of which, is twice that of the sum of the pearl symbols that combine to create it. When there are no more spins or every position is filled with pearl/Megapearl symbols, the bonus round is over.

Also, depending on the region, players can choose to buy the bonus round but it’ll cost them 80 times the stake. After the purchase, the reels spin and six or more of the pearl scatter symbols land to start the feature.

Strong Addition:

Commenting on the latest collaboration, Stuart McCarthy, Head of Product & Programs for Yggdrasil, said…

“We’re very pleased to collaborate with ReelPlay again to launch an exciting, Hold and Win style Gigablox™ title. The licensing of our GEM’s has expanded the potential of the program significantly and we look forward to seeing what further innovations will be created.”

For its part, ReelPlay, Chief Executive Officer, David Johnson, added…

“Megapearl Gigablox™ is another strong addition to our portfolio through the YG Masters program. Combining the popular Gigablox™ mechanic with a rich Chinese theme, ReelPlay have produced an engaging and re-playable slot experience for a wide audience.”

The new launch is the latest title from the Sydney-based online slots specialist released via the YG Masters program, and as stated, the game is powered by Yggdrasil’s state-of-the-art GATI technology, which allows partners to leverage the preconfigured, regulation-ready, standardized development toolkit proven to produce cutting-edge content consistently followed by speedy distribution.

Megapearl Gigablox follows the April release, Rise of the Valkyrie Splitz Lightning Chase, which features Yggdrasil’s trademarked Splitz feature and Bananaz 10k Ways, also from ReelPlay and launched in March. There are currently a total of 26 contributions to the YG Masters program from the Aussie developer.
