As the weather warms up and players everywhere begin to deliberate on where they’ll take their first post-COVID vacation of 2021, the characters of Yggdrasil are booking in some down time of their own. And reigning from sunny Florida, the Gators of Yggdrasil’s latest release are pencilling a break to the sun-scorched desert plains of North Africa.
Actually, that’s not strictly true… It seems that as the buzz began to build around the hotly anticipated production of their core May game, the brain boxes of Yggdrasil confused Gators with their equatorial cousins, Crocodiles. But we digress…
The important nugget of truth we’re gunning for here, herpetology blunders notwithstanding, is that on 27th May, players are invited to sink their teeth in the jaw-some, third Gigablox™ release of Gator Gold Gigablox™!
Following the roaring success of Gigablox™ as they made their first pit stops in a quaint Japanese bazaar before surfacing in the underworld, they’re appearing this time before players in the African outback where both the wins and the gators are huge!
Like it’s Lucky Neko Gigablox™ and Hades Gigablox™ counterparts, Gator Gold Gigablox™ is a 4x6 game of high variance. It offers frequent Free Spins featuring Multiplier Wilds. On top of which, Golden Gator Super Symbol can appear that pay from as little of 2-of-a-kind!
So, let’s get down and dusty with the meerkats, zebras and more and sink our teeth into this fearsome feast of features.
Golden Gator Super High Pay Symbol
The first of the Gator’s gifts players can expect to find from this latest Yggdrasil release is the Golden Gator Super High Payers. This is a premium symbol that pays from 2-of-a-kind. And what’s more, in this season of Savannah spinning, the gators aren’t shy. They’re guaranteed to appear on every spin, so the wins are set to keep on comin’!
So even when the rain won’t come, the coin wins will!
We couldn’t chomp through this review without a ceremonial appearance of Yggdrasil’s awe-inspiring Gigablox™ Game Engagement Mechanic. Following in the gigantic footsteps of Neko Gigablox™ and Hades Gigablox™ come combined reels of colossal symbols. As teased above, each game round, at least one Gigablox™ reel can appears wherein the game’s Gigablox™ sizes can go all the way up to 4x4 for some seriously mouth-watering wins!
And what’s a summer safari without some Free Spins. Gator Gold’s Bonus game is triggered by landing at least five Free Spin Scatter Symbols. And for each Free Spin symbol landing, the game will award one Free Spin. So players can be safe in the knowledge that they’ll start the round with a minimum of five Free Spins all the way up to 24 Free Spins!
As is customary of more or less any Free Spins Bonus Game, landing a Free Spins Scatter symbol during the Free Spins session will awards an additional spin for each symbol. In essence, as long as the Scatter symbols continue to appear, the Free Spins can be triggered again and again.
The Free Spin adventure doesn’t end at them being merely re-triggerable. Whilst in the Free Spins Bonus Game might pack enough of a punch as it is, 2x and 3x Multiplier Wilds will be present on the reels during the entire of the Free Spins round making the win potential even higher.
There’s only one downside so to speak of. The Multiplier Wilds will only affect the wins they take part in. So a zig-zag line of Zebra, Leopards and Bison with a Multiplier Wild appearing on a non-participating line will not multiply the line win.
A small price to pay for so much sun-blistering action.
This is a searing safari action game that will have players heading for the heat time after time. And it’s not hard to understand why. Golden Gator Super High Pay Symbols, Gigablox™, Free Spins and Multiplier Wilds all paint a vivid picture of big wins waiting to happen.
Whilst the Multiplier Wilds contributing to pay lines they haven’t participated in during the Free Spins Bonus Game would be a substantial upgrade, we can’t, in all honesty, get greedy. Yggdrasil has conjured up a seriously atmospheric and feature laden slice of slots play that catapults players into the land of sun and adventure.
It’s hard to imagine why the Gators of Orlando would have taken the long-haul trip they have to participate in such quality and quantity, but after thorough investigation, we’re glad they did! These snappy devils are responsible for the bulk of the game’s most dopamine dosing action whether they appear as either Golden Gator Super High Pay Symbols or Gigablox™.
And with an album filing cameo from the high-paying Bison, Cheetahs, Meerkats and Zebra, there’s enough to satisfy the wanderlust in players as much as there is to sate the spin lust too!
