After announcing a new partnership with Lottomatica earlier this month, Yggdrasil Gaming has now announced a new slot game release, just in time for the Easter holiday. The online gaming developer is taking gamers on an adventure to a remote area on the Pacific Ocean, with their new title Easter Island.

Players will find that their journey to the unique island is filled with sticky wilds and expanding reels, with the special symbol swap respin feature providing additional ways to win. During the swap round, players will see every win trigger a respin and the winning symbol will be replaced with another, either all low paying symbols or high paying symbols will be seen on the reels of the game.

Explorers of Easter Island will be welcomed by the two towering Moai statues, both of which are animated and provide players with a morale boost, plus a little help when needed. The statues can grow four rows high when more than four symbols are found on the win line, providing players with the chance to earn a big jackpot win!

Jonas Strandman, the Head of Slots for Yggdrasil Gaming, commented on the new game in a press release by stating: “Easter Island is the perfect pep up for those with an adventurous spirit. Players will be treated to exciting winning combinations as they trigger the novel ‘symbol swap respin’ and take advantage of the expanding reels.

“With the big wins on offer, those who make the trip won’t be in a hurry to return to the mainland anytime soon.”

To celebrate the Easter holiday further, Yggdrasil is offering the new Easter Island game along with two others in a special leaderboard contest, available on March 29th. Players will be able to play the new Easter Island game along with Gem Rocks and Vikings go Berzerk, for the chance to win part of a €60,000 prize pool.

The player that earns the top position during the leaderboard competition will be given a trip for two to Easter Island and Chile, plus have the opportunity to tour the Atacama Desert.
