Lucky Neko: Gigablox is a 6 reel game that is 4 symbols high. The slot uses traditional paylines, with 40 in total, playing from left to right.
This slot is based on daruma dolls, a symbol of good luck in Japanese culture. It is those daruma dolls that form the Gigablox, which it turns out are giant symbols that will always land but the size of which will vary.
Gigablox – Gigablox are giant symbols that you are guaranteed to see on each of your spins. They can be 2x2, 3x3 or 4x4 in the base game and can 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, 5x5 or 6x6 during the Free Spins.
Wild – Wild symbols is the “Gold Cat”, which will substitute for all regular symbols.
Free Spins – The Free Spins symbol is the Cat. You need 5 or more of them on a single spin to trigger the feature.
Free Spins – If you trigger the Free Spins you will be taken to a new grid that is 8 symbols high and 6 reels in total. The number of paylines will increase to 85 and your Gigablox symbols will have the potential to reach 6x6 in total. Like the base game, every spin during the Free Spins guarantees a Gigablox of some size. There will also be a blessed symbol, which will involve taking an existing symbol at random and applying a x5 multiplier to any wins that it forms.
Lucky Neko: Gigablox is a fun looking slot that uses one key feature throughout. The Gigablox are giant symbols that will always appear on the reels. Along with the key feature you get wilds and you get free spins. The reels expand during the free spins, as do the number of paylines and the potential size of each Gigablox. This is far from being one of Yggdrasil’s finest moments but is nevertheless a solid piece of work with a good house edge.
