In the online pokie world, we’re seeing plenty of new interesting innovations from developers. Along with Megaways and Infinity Reels, there are some new mechanics that are reinvent more established features – such as the GigaBlox series from Yggdrasil Gaming. The developer has just announced its second GigaBlox pokie, Hades, which will be launched on October 22nd, 2020.
Big Bloxs and Wild Hunts
The upcoming Hades GigaBlox online pokie features a 6x6 reel format with medium volatility and a 96% RTP. It has a dark theme with reels that are set deep in the underworld and are surrounded by skulls and snakes. On the game’s 50 paylines, there are symbols that can land in 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, 5x5 or 6x6 blocks.
The Wild Hunt Feature is randomly triggered and Hades (who stands alongside the reels) will engage in battle with one of the monster symbols. If he defeats the monster, all instances of that specific symbol turn wild.
Landing 5 scatters will trigger the free spins round. During this bonus, the Wild Hunt feature will be active on each and every spin. On top of this, every time a monster in defeated, you’ll have one point added to the Multiplier Bar. Once this bar is full, you’ll get 2 more free sins and your multiplier will increase – up to a maximum of 10x.
About the Gigablox Series
The first-ever GigaBlox slot game made its debut in the online slots world earlier this year, when Lucky Niko was released. This fun and charming online slot was designed with a Japanese aesthetic. The game takes place in a pastel-coloured room with reels surrounded by kokeshi dolls, sake bottles and bonzai trees, making for an immersive setting.
With an RTP of 96.4%, and medium/high volatility, Lucky Neko GigaBlox was designed to be a crowd-pleasing pokie. The game also offered a top prize of 6900x.
These two games feature fairly different gameplay, as Hades GigaBlox has 10 more paylines and one more reel. The follow-up slot also has a base game bonus whereas Lucky Neko Gigablox only features a free spins round with 85 paylines.
The one thing that the games do have in common is the GigaBlox feature. With colossal symbols that can be triggered on every spin, Lucky Neko and Hades both provides generous winning potential. The GigaBlox do help to encourage wins so players look forward to exciting gameplay.
Hades GigaBlox will only be released a few months after Lucky Neko. Since these games are so entertaining, we’d love to see a third release in the GigaBlox series before the year is up!
