The Big Blox slots game is produced by Yggdrasil Gaming. Yggdrasil Gaming take their name from Norse mythology where Yggdrasil is a magical tree where dragons lived and Odin sacrificed himself. Yggdrasil Gaming are one of the smaller slot development companies on the market at the moment – primarily focusing on lottery and scratch card game - and do not offer a full casino platform. They lease their games out to casinos using other platforms as a bolt on package. Yggdrasil Gaming publish the Return to Player/House Edge of their slots games within the game help file. The House Edge of Big Blox is 3.80%.
Don’t get yourself squashed by and unexpected (and big!) falling block.
The Big Blox game has 5 reels which are 3 symbols high. It does not use standard paylines. Instead any three or more matching symbols anywhere on adjacent reels starting from the left side of the reels constitutes a win. This is equivalent to 243 standard paylines.
The ‘Wild symbol is Wild.
There is only one bonus feature when playing Big Blox and it is active every spin. Each spin a random section of the reels of a size between 2x2 and 5x3 and this section will all show a randomly selected matching symbol from the paytable. If the symbol is the Wild symbol the maximum size is 4x3.
Big Blox lacks much of the sparkle we’ve come to expect from Yggdrasil Gaming. Visually the game is attractive, but the bonus feature is nothing that hasn’t been done many many times before and the House Edge – while not out of control – is towards the higher end of the range commonly being used today. Why would you choose this game when you can get many better games for less?
