Hong-Kong-based independent games studio AvatarUX has launched its next PopWins title, WildPops, via its ongoing partnership with Yggdrasil Gaming‘s flagship YG Masters program.
The new addition to the Swedish provider’s slot offering makes use of the Asian developer’s PopWins mechanic, which sees winning symbols ‘pop’ and be replaced with a pair of new symbols. The symbols can keep expanding for every cascading win on a single spin, ramping up awesome win potential.
“WildPops™ is a fun-filled new addition to the Yggdrasil slot offering and will appeal to a wide demographic of players.”
For every seventh Pop, the game adds a multiplier, which means that a single spin can transform into big wins as long as the Pops don’t and the reel grid keeps growing.
If a player should land three wins simultaneously, they trigger two random wilds, which will then be repeated for every three consecutive wins, paving the way to even greater number of Pops.
Triggering the bonus round happens if the reels grow to seven columns high, which awards players three extra lives. Typically, a non-win screen would mean the end of the multiplier, however, in this case, one of the three extra lives is consumed and the player is awarded with a re-spin. The multiplier, meanwhile, stays put throughout the entire spin.
Broad range appeal:
Head of Partner Strategy and Sourcing for Yggdrasil Gaming, Stuart McCarthy, used an official press release to comment on the new release…
