Fatz's Diner GigaBlox Features
Grab your milkshake, ignore the jukebox and put between 20p and £40 into the slot machine next to it instead! This 5x5 slot has 40 paylines and is advertised as being highly volatile. Starting from the leftmost reel, you just need between 3 and 5 symbols to land on 3 consecutive reels.
The symbols are a mixture of animal characters and food items that are ordered at this odd little diner. Low pays are the food symbols—bananas, berries, grass and ham—and they’re all of the same value. 5-of-a-kind pays out at 0.8x the bet. In ascending order, fedora-supporting crocodile, nerd monkeys, milkshake-slurping deer, rocker lion and grill-working hippo are the high pays. 5 of these matching creature symbols will win you between 1x and 4x times the stake.
A Vinyl symbol is Wild and can substitute for all normal paying symbols. On top of that, you’ve also got Gigablox. For the uninitiated—where on earth have you been!?—Gigablox are giant pay symbols, so they cover more positions on the grid, thereby increasing your chances of landing matching symbols on the paylines!
Expand & Respin
The Arrow Expand and Respin symbol triggers a respin, and it also expands the GigaReel, thus increasing the size of the subsequent Gigablox. The Expand and Respin symbol’s arrow indicates the direction in which the GigaReel will expand. Gigablox can increase up to 5x5 in size.
If 5 or more Bonus symbols fall, it triggers the Free spins Bonus. You start off with 5 free spins by default, and the number of Bonus symbols that have fallen to trigger the round corresponds to the number of extra free spins you’ll receive i.e. if 6 Scatter symbols trigger the bonus round, you’ll have 11 free spins in total.
Once you’ve entered the round, you’ll see the GigaReel to the left of the game area, plus in the top right corner, you’ll see the Hippo multiplier. The GigaReel indicates the minimum size of any Gigablox that’ll fall. To ascend up the GigaReel, you just need more Arrow Expand and Respin symbols to drop. Once you’ve accumulated 3, the minimum size of the Gigablox will be 3x3. Accumulate 6 and the Gigablox will increase to 4x4. 9 will give you a Gigablox of 5x5.
The Hippo Multiplier begins at 3x and increases by +3 with every subsequent Hippo win. Although the Hippo is the highest pay symbol, he doesn’t like to share, so this Multiplier won’t be applied to any other winning combinations. The Hippo Multiplier does stay until the end of the round, though. Keep in mind that if any Bonus Scatter symbols land, you’re awarded even more free spins.
Players outside the UK can purchase 2 different bonus features. 100x the bet gives players between 10 and 30 free spins. 600x the bet gives you 30 free spins with a Hippo multiplier of 9x.
