Lucky Neko: Gigablox Slot Game (Yggdrasil)
Yggdrasil is back with a new slot, Lucky Neko: Gigablox borrows a lot of inspiration from Japanese lucky dolls.
This is not your typical slot game, as everything seems to have been well thought out. By this, I mean the slot’s layout, features, as well as top payouts.
Lucky Neko: Gigablox is a 6-reel game, and the game can provide between 40 to 85 betting lines. Some of the most common symbols that I came across on this game are the Gigablox symbols. These can occupy a 4x4 or 6x6 positions, and they appear during gameplay.
Betting and Prizes
You don’t need a lot of money to start with this game, because, with as little as $0.08, I was able to spin the reels. The maximum amount that you can use per spin is $100.
For its top payout, Lucky Neko: Gigablox offers quite a high reward, with up to 6,953x the stake being possible. This surprised me quite a bit because, in the many years that I have played Yggdrasil titles, this is one of their few slots with such high potential.
Lucky Neko: Gigablox also comes with a very good RTP of 96.40%.
Lucky Neko Gigablox Slot Features
The name Gigablox comes from the slot’s 2x2, 3x3 and 4x4 symbols which occasionally appear on the game’s reels.
When using the free spins mode, these symbols increase in size to as much as 6x6.
The slot has wild symbols as well, and these can be used as a substitute for the regular ones. The wilds can also appear as Gigablox versions, and this is the point when they become very useful.
To get to the free spins, you will need the help of the Lucky Cat icons. You will need at least five of these symbols to earn the free spins. For each symbol, you will be awarded 1 free spin and the maximum that you can get is16 free spins.
Theme & Design
From the look of things, Yggdrasil has borrowed a lot of inspiration from the daruma dolls of Japan. These types of dolls are considered lucky by the Japanese and it’s the story that the slot game seems to capitalise on.
Lucky Neko: Gigablox has several symbols that include a Golden Cat Wild, different coloured dolls (they come in 4 versions and are the highest in terms of value), Lucky Cat Scatter, and some card suits that represent the low-value icons.
Yggdrasil is known for pretty and well-designed slot games, and Lucky Neko: Gigablox does not disappoint here.
When it comes to payouts, Lucky Neko: Gigablox outdoes most other slots from this developer.
However, it’s also important to remember that high payouts are usually accompanied by high volatility.
This is a slot game that is suitable for more experienced players.
