Tribal themes have long since proved to be a popular area for slot developers to visit and we have played many different types of tribal slots over the years. Big Blox is one such example of this game genre and it comes to players from the prolific Yggdrasil Gaming. It looks fantastic with a really exotic theme and loads of tribal characters on the reels to help you on your quest to eternal fortune. The game has interesting payline structure and a great bonus feature to enjoy also.
Yggdrasil has scrapped the traditional payline structure for Big Blox and players can benefit from an incredible 243 ways to win. You can match symbols from left to right to win also which is really useful. The game offers something a little different and you can place a bet from just 25p a spin.
This rises to £100 so players of all budgets can enjoy this game. There is a base game jackpot of 400X and a return to the player of over 96% which is great so you can win big on it if you are lucky.
The design is arguably one of the game’s primary assets and it really is vibrant and immersive with loads of interesting looking tribal characters in various colours. The symbols all have different values and the higher-value symbols are stone masks which are blue, gold, purple and green in colour. The background seems to be a jungle with some exotic green trees visible behind the reel interface.
The controls are located at the base of the interface and they are clearly labelled so you will have no issues getting started. Additionally, we found the sound effects to fun although you can turn them off if needs be.
The game doesn’t offer the player too many bonus features but there is a wild symbol included. It’s big and gold and has the word “wild” displayed across it so you cannot really miss it. It substitutes for all others to help you pick up some big wins. It doesn’t appear on the first reel so bare this in mind and look out for it as it is a big addition to your base gameplay.
The bonus feature is the Big Block Feature and on each spin, a matching block of symbols can land somewhere on the reels and vary from 2X2 to 5X3 in size. The block can grow to the size whereby it will pay out on its own or it can combine with other symbols on the reel to help form additional winning combinations. Also, your win will be multiplied by the number of winning symbols on the reel at that time.
Overall, Big Blox is a simple but effective five reel slot that will appeal to players that love a well-designed game. It really looks the part and we found it to be a fun and enjoyable slot experience. This game will appeal to players that are looking for something a bit different in their slot games.
