Product Review: Push Gaming – Giga Jar

Push Gaming's Space Stacks came second in this category at the Global Gaming Awards London. However, Giga Jar is one of its latest online slots.

Giga Jar, launching on March 28, sees the return of our popular Cluster Link mechanic. This requires five or more fruit symbols or instant prize symbols to be adjacent to each other to award a win. Whenever a winning cluster is formed, these symbols are removed from play, triggering a cascade of new symbols to fall from the top of the game board, providing additional opportunities to create more clusters.

New to Giga Jar is that each win increases the player’s position on an incrementally increasing ladder, with every three cascades unlocking a wild jar. These will be familiar to Push Gaming enthusiasts as they behave the same as the wild multipliers found in the hit game Jammin’ Jars. Each win these wilds are a part of increases its multiplier by 1x with the wild moving to one adjacent position on the matrix.

Aiding players in creating wins are multiple randomly triggered features. The snowball mechanic can award multiple giant symbols up to 4x4 in size that reveal a matching symbol. Additionally, the Ice Breaker feature can remove up to three types of symbols from the game board, allowing for an additional cascade to be triggered.

These features play a part in helping players to unlock the Giga Jar situated at the top of the incrementally increasing prize ladder. 12 cascades are required to unlock this 2x2 wild symbol. This guarantees three wins will be formed, at which point the Giga Jar will be frozen in place and three additional wins are needed to retrigger the Giga Jar and award an increasing multiplier that can climb as high as 50x. With multiple features and mechanics working in tandem, the slot offers a maelstrom of excitement, multipliers, wilds and big win potential for players to enjoy, all in a familiar setting, designed to drive engagement.
