Yggdrasil Gaming’s Hades Gigablox™ Goes Live
This past October 22 saw the release of a phenomenal new video slot by leading online casino software developer Yggdrasil Gaming. Hades Gigablox™ is only the second slot featuring the studio’s new GIGABLOX™ mechanic.
The scene is set in the fiery depths of the Underworld, a dark and intimidating place ruled by Hades, god of the dead. The theme is supremely mythical, and the developer’s rendition of the place Greek mythos teaches all human souls go when they die is eerily turned almost life-like by the stunning graphics and special effects.
Featuring 6x6 reels, an incredible 50 paylines, and a top payout of €1,112,900 ($1,315,458), Yggdrasil Gaming’s new 96% RTP Hades Gigablox™ is now live and available from operators across the Yggdrasil network.
Gigablox™ For Mighty Big Wins
Hades himself plays a leading role. Watching on from the side of the game-area as the action unfolds with the flames of hell flickering red-hot in the background, Hades with only as much as a subtle nod commands mega-sized blocks called Gigablox™ to group standard symbols together for massive combinations and wins. These oversized blocks start out at 2x2 in symbol-diameter but can become as large as 6x6 for maximum award.
All standard wins pay from left to right and for combinations of three or more matching symbols. Bets start out at €0.10 and increase all the way up to €100 when playing at maximum allowable wager.
Symbols include the Hydra, the Horned Beast, the Mutant Bird, playing card symbols carved from big blocks, several Wilds, the three-headed hound Cerberus Scatter symbol, and the Minotaur, which is the game’s bonus symbol. Wild symbols number four in total and are Hydra, Horned Beast, Mutant Bird, and Minotaur – only this time, displayed in gold. This feature alone makes of Hades Gigablox™ an online video slots show to remember.
Free Spins Bonus Feature
The Free Spins bonus game requires of the player to land 5 or more Cerberus Scatters simultaneously on the reels. Once the hounds of hell are unleashed, each Scatter instantly unlocks 1 x free game.
For the duration of the Free Spins bonus game and following the completion of every free spin of the reels, Hades will step onto the reels to fight the monsters. Every monster-symbol defeated by the god of the dead will instantly turn Wild. The more fights won by Hades, the more increased win potential for the benefit of the player. For every ten fights won by the god of the dead, a 2x Multiplier is instantly unlocked.
All in all, Yggdrasil Gaming’s new Hades Gigablox™ slot is as potentially lucrative as what it is the makings of a superbly entertaining online gaming experience.
