Giganimals Gigablox Review
Gigablox slots have been entertaining fans for a little while now with their simple but important adaptation to the regular slots mechanic. Gigablox are large blocks of symbols that will break down into their single format when they are part of a win.
It's a bit like having a stacked symbol, but they cover a grid of symbols rather than an entire reel. Introducing low-paying symbols into the mix as a potentially powerful ally is a clever touch. Naturally, the symbols will land more frequently than others and they can be transformed into wilds as well as help to trigger the free spins feature. All of this is showcased in Giganimals Gigablox.
The game's theme is based on an alien planet with cute little monsters running the show. There are some nice animated touches as the free spins are triggered and the little spaceship meter goes across to collect its wild power.
The soundtrack is just as quirky as the rest of the game and is more like 70s elevator music, but it does help to add to the weird nature of proceedings.
It doesn't feel like you're spending the majority of your time in a standard base game while playing Giganimals Gigablox. The Gigablox themselves make each spin exciting and the low-paying symbols are constantly popping up with the potential to land you decent wins and trigger the feature.
The free spins round is where you will probably see the biggest wins but due to the high volatility, don't expect to trigger this all the time.
The 20,024x stake maximum payout kind of speaks for itself. There is extremely high volatility, as you would expect but that is the price you pay for such huge maximum winning potential.
You need to budget carefully with this game and make sure you don't go too hard too soon. The RTP will likely sit at 96% but it's possible that this could change depending on where you play.
There is nothing particularly complicated about Giganimals Gigablox and this is helped by only having one main feature. The win potential is there, the quirky modifiers are there and the game design does just enough to ease you in and grip your attention.
It is probably a game for those looking for bigger wins rather than beautiful imagery and more of an adventure.
