Sweden – Yggdrasil teams up with Peter & Sons to hunt beasts in Monster Blox GigabloxBy Phil - 22 November 2021
Yggdrasil, the leading worldwide publisher of online gambling content, has joined forces with Peter & Sons in its fearsome new hit Monster Blox Gigablox.
The 6×4 slot, with the boutique studio’s unmistakable art style and the popular cascading wins mechanic, sees heroes gather at an old tavern as they plot to hunt down monsters that threaten their land.
Incorporating the popular Gigablox mechanic, the game sees a giant symbol land on every spin, from 2×2 in size to a mammoth 6×6.
Up to three wilds can randomly appear on any reel, while every win in base play awards a respin. During these Monster Respins, an additional row is added which can continue if a successful respin occurs, up to a massive 6×8 grid. Respins continue until no win is possible, while random wild placements can be awarded.
In base play, a hunter can transform any symbol into wilds, including Gigablox ones. This Wild Bounty modifier can also occur in respins and free spins as well.
Monster Free Spins mode is triggered when five or more scatters land on a single spin. This sees the game grid expand to a 6×8, 100 payline grid, with each scatter that lands during the bonus round adding an extra free spin, while also charging a meter that increases the monster multiplier at certain levels, up to 10x.
In certain jurisdictions, players can also buy free spins.
Monster Blox Gigablox is Peter & Sons’ latest addition to the YG Masters portfolio, following Hammer of Gods. The title is powered by GATI, with Yggdrasil’s state-of-the-art technology enabling partners to employ the preconfigured, regulation-ready, standardised development toolkit to produce consistently cutting-edge content followed by rapid distribution.
Stuart McCarthy, Head of Product and Programs at Yggdrasil, said: “Monster Blox Gigablox brings another epic adventure to our YG Masters offering, needing the bravest in town to fight off some fearsome beasts.
“Using the Gigablox™ mechanic, along with both a respins and free spins mode, Peter & Sons are again able to create something truly unique in their eye-catching style. We can’t wait to see how players across our network react to it.”
Yann Bautista, Business Development Manager at Peter & Sons, said: “Monster Blox Gigablox is another forward-thinking, action-packed hit from our team and we’re very proud of it. With guaranteed wins in free spins and a lucrative respins mode, every spin can lead to huge wins.
“It is another exciting game released as part of the YG Masters program and we’re eager to continue achieving milestones together. We’ve enjoyed a strong relationship with Yggdrasil and we see the opportunity to utilise its high-performing frameworks strategically throughout our roadmap.”
