Northern Lights invites players to a pet shop in its latest fur-filled release rolled out with Yggdrasil, Prized Pets Gigablox.
Prized Pets is a 6×4 reel slot with symbols differing in size, ranging from 1×1 to 6×6. The title has 25-paylines and a maximum win of up to x5,000 the player’s stake.

Low value symbols in the game are represented by different pet foods with carrots, sunflowers, fish and kibble. These symbols can offer between x0.1 and x2.5 the player’s stake, depending on the amount of matching combinations that land on a single spin.
Higher value symbols come in the form of various animals including rabbits, budgies, cats and dogs. If the right amount of paying combinations land on a single spin then these symbols can offer between x0.2 and x8 the player’s stake.
A wild feature is also included, depicted as a pet collar. If the right amount of wilds land consecutively on a payline then they can offer between x0.3 and x8 the initial bet.
These wilds can substitute for all symbols other than the scatter and have the ability to land as a larger Gigablox square to increase the win potential.
The scatter symbol is represented by a pet shop, triggering a free spins bonus if five or more land on the reels at once. Each scatter that lands will award one free spin, so a minimum of five free spins can be triggered with this feature.
Other scatters that land on the reels during the free spins mode will award an additional free spin each. These scatter symbols can also appear as a larger Gigablox symbol.
The Gigablox game mechanic enhances each reel as symbols can appear as big as 6×6 to cover the entire board. Between two and six reels can appear as Gigablox reels on every spin.
The game has a chomp chomp wild bonus feature that can be randomly activated in both the base game and the free spins mode. This causes some low-paying pet food symbols to turn wild after its correlating animal becomes the prized pet for the round.
If the rabbit gets selected for the prized pet then carrots will become wild. Sunflowers turn wild for the budgie, kibble upgrades if the dog is chosen and fish symbols will be wild for the cat. All of these pet food wilds can appear as larger Gigablox squares.
Randomly through the base game, smaller 1×1 symbols can land with a bone token. These bones will be transferred to a food bowl. Each bone token increases the chance of triggering the pot bonus.
With the pot bonus, red cloths hide trophy prizes ranging from x30 to x5,000 the player’s stake. Players must select the hidden prizes one-by-one until they have selected three of the same value. The selected prize will then be awarded to the player.
