ReelPlay has travelled to China to bring players its culturally enriched title, MegaPearl Gigablox.
MegaPearl Gigablox is a 6×4, 40-payline video slot that incorporates a maximum pin potential of up to x16,297 the bet.
Symbols in the game include four low-paying Chinese characters offering multiplier values worth x0.125 to x1.5 for combinations of three to six-of-a-kind. These are followed by lotus flowers, lanterns, gold coins and sycees, offering x2.5 to x5 the bet for six-of-a-kind.
Moving onto special symbols, pearls are used to activate the bonus respins feature, while the dragon is wild, substituting for all regular-pays and offering up to x7.5 the bet for six on a line.
The title incorporates a Gigablox mechanix, a bonus respins feature and a buy the bonus option.
Starting with Gigablox, these are oversized symbols on the reels that function like individual icons in a 2×2 to 4×4 formation. Any symbol including the wild dragon and scattered pearl symbol can land as a Gigablox. In the base game, every spin will have at least one Gigablox reel.
Moving onto the bonus respins feature, this is triggered when six or more pearls are landed, awarding three respins.
Here, each pearl is awarded a random multiplier from x1 to x1,000. Moreover, if pearls exist wholly in a square formation of 2×2 or greater, they are combined into a MegaPearl – an oversized symbol which replaces the icons that combine to form it.
The MegaPearl’s multiplier value is twice the sum of the multiplier values of all combining symbols. 2×2 and 3×3 MegaPearls can be combined with other pearls and MegaPearls to become larger.
During a bonus respin, all pearl and MegaPirl symbols become sticky, while all remaining positions spin. When any new pearl symbols appear, they are held, and respins are reset to three. MegaPearls are processed at the end of every spin.
Respins are complete when either respin count reaches zero, or when all positions contain a pearl or MegaPearl. Upon completion of respins, the total multiplier value of all pearl and megaPearl symbols is multiplied by the total bet and paid.
Finally, players are able to buy the bonus round for x80 the bet, awarding a spin which lands at least six pearl scatters symbols to start the feature.
