The latest Yggdrasil Gaming product will take you deep into the jungle where you will come across some scary-looking totems.
This five-reel slot offers 243 ways to win with a maximum possible payout of 3,888 times the initial bet which will most certainly make gamers start worshiping the scary totems, praying for some hefty payouts.
Unlike many other Yggdrasil Gaming titles, Big Blox slot clearly lacks proper action, but you might enjoy this exotic destination if you have luck with the Big Blocks feature that is triggered after every spin.
What We Love
Yggdrasil Gaming is famous for slots that house some sharp graphics and very good soundtracks and Big Blox slot is no different. We were impressed with the overall visual appearance thanks to the top-notch graphics and animations and an interesting soundtrack that follows the story completely.
Everything in the 2016 release revolves around the Big Blocks feature triggered after every spin. In every round you can expect a Big Block to land on a randomly chosen position and the size of the Big Block can vary from 2×2 to 5×3.
In theory, it is possible to land a Big Block Wild that can cover 15 positions on the reels, which would most certainly guarantee a massive payout that can go up to 3,888 times the triggering bet, thanks to the 243 ways to win system.
What We Do Not Like
Being big fans of action-packed video slots, we did not like the fact that there are no additional features in this Yggdrasil title.
With no free spins, no bonus games, all we need to do is spin the reels, which may get monotonous after a period of time. Taking into consideration that the only bonus game is added during base game, you will not get anything free of charge.
Even though the Big Blocks feature is triggered in every spin, you will not land a winning combination very often, and once you do, it is usually made out of low paying symbols.
The maximum payout of 400 coins delivered for landing five red totems is a bit low, and if you plan to win lucrative payouts, you should pray for multiple winning combinations and some huge Big Blocks.
To be completely honest, we were far from impressed with the latest Yggdrasil Gaming product. Even though the slot offers 243 ways to win, Big Blox feature and a maximum possible payout of 3,888 times the initial stake, we soon realized that, in reality, you cannot expect much from these stone totems.
On the other hand, you will enjoy the overall visual appearance, while the betting range makes the game very affordable. However, due to the lack of proper action, we do reckon that the 2016 release cannot keep one’s attention for a long period of time, since we quickly lost our interest because we simply do not like slots where all you need to do is simply spin the reels.
