Online gaming solutions provider, Yggdrasil, together with YG Master studio partner, Northern Lights, have launched a brand-new online slot titled Prized Pets Gigablox. This charming pet-filled game is powered by the provider’s advanced Game Adaption Tools & Interface (GATI) technology and is available now for desktop and mobile action.
This high volatility collaboration is played on a 6-reel, 4-reel grid with 25 paylines and is set in a pet shop where you’ll find all the necessary paraphernalia to keep your critters healthy and happy. The game has a 96.1 percent RTP and a max win of €261,150, while incorporating Yggdrasil’s Gigablox game engagement mechanic (GEM). This particular game engine guarantees that one or more supersized symbol will land on each spin, ranging in size from 2×2 to 6×6.
Symbols & Paytable:
Winning combinations are formed by landing 3 to 6-of-a-kind symbols on adjacent lines starting from the leftmost reel. The game’s lower value symbols include carrots, sunflowers, fish and dog food, which are worth 2.5x the bet, while the higher value rabbit, bird, cat, or dog symbols are worth 5-8 times the stake.
As for the Wild symbol, which is a dog collar with a gold bone-shaped tag situated on top of a decorative pillow, it appears on all reels and pays up to 8x the bet for five-of-a-kind. They can also be used to substitute for any regular symbol to help complete winning combinations.
Each of the higher value pet symbols corresponds with a lower value food symbol, e.g., the dog with dog bowl with food, the cat is associated with the fish, of course, while the bird has the sunflower and the rabbit get the yummy carrot.
Appearing the the base game and free spins, when the Chomp Chomp Wild Bonus is randomly triggered, a pet appear on the grid and transforms any of its associated food symbols in view into wild symbols.
Additionally, landing 5 or more scatter BONUS symbols triggers the free spins round, with players awarded 1 free spin for each scatter on the screen. What’s more, scatters are also able to land during free spins and for every one that hits, an additional free spin is awarded.
And last but not least, single 1×1 symbols can land with a bone overlay. When that happens, they are deposited into the Pot bowl. For every bone collected in this way, there is a chance to trigger the Pot bonus.
When activated, 12 trophies hidden under red cloths will appear on the screen. Players choose one at a time to reveal the trophy underneath the cloth and it is transferred to the Prize Shelf. When players have uncovered three matching trophies, they are awarded the corresponding prize, including the Mini, Minor, Major, or Grand prize, worth 30x, 200x, 1,000x, or 5,000x the bet, respectively.
