Yggdrasil, a globally-recognized iGaming provider based in Malta, has officially launched Fatz’s Diner GigaBlox™, a diner-themed slot where players may experience an adventure in a real 1950s American diner that looks very clean and includes a jukebox and a tasty menu.
True to its name, the main theme of the slot is the aforementioned diner that serves members of the animal kingdom instead of ordinary people. The game’s background provides an impressive view of the diner’s interior, which features 1950s classic elements like leather-trimmed booths, neon signs and a prominent jukebox. Additionally, the whole place is imbued with intricate details and vibrant colors, which further adds visual intrigue and depth. The developer has also added a reel border, which is especially eye-catching, created to resemble the top and bottom portions of a vintage 1950s car.
To win, players must form a winning combination of 3, 4 or 5 matching symbols on one of the 40 paylines. Also, these symbols must land on consecutive reels starting from the reel furthest to the left on the dynamic 5×5 grid. Furthermore, the game may be played on any device, has high volatility, a default RTP of 96% and a maximum win of 9,000x a player’s bet.
As for the symbols, there are 4 low-value ones such as berries, meat, bananas and foliage, while the 5 bonus high-value ones are the goat, lion, crocodile and monkey. A combination of five low-value symbols is worth 0.8x, increasing to 1x to 4x a player’s bet for a combination of 5 high-value bonus symbols.
Wild symbols – the main task of Wilds is to replace all regular paying symbols.
Gigablox – on every spin, 2 to 5 reels may join together to produce a Gigablox reel. Additionally, Gigablox is bigger compared to normal symbols and represent 2×2 to 5×5 blocks, which enables players to make winning combinations very easily.
Expand & Respin – when the Expand & Respin symbol appears, the respin is rewarded and the present Gigareel will increase by one cell in the direction of the trigger icon. Also, multiplier Expand & Respin symbols may appear for extra respins and additional extensions. However, these symbols only appear on individual reels.
Free Spins – when players land minimum 5 Scatters, free spins are rewarded and this feature is triggered. However, players only receive 5 free spins in addition to the 5 representing Scatters used for activation. Throughout the round, each 3 generated Expand & Respin symbols boost the minimum size of the Gigablox reel for the rest of the feature.
Additionally, the highest-paying symbol, aka Hippo, gets a multiplier, which initial value is x3 and then starts to grow by +3 every time a Hippo win happens. The multiplier is not reset till the feature comes to an end. Finally, additional free spins are rewarded each time a Scatter appears.
Bonus Buy – this feature is optional, and requires players to place 100x of the wager to be rewarded with 10 to 30 free spins. But that’s not all; as they can also pay 600x of the wager to get 30 free spins and an initial value of x9 for the Hippo multiplier.
Commenting on the launch, Chief Gaming Officer at Yggdrasil, Mark McGinley, commented: “If you’re hungry for the prosperous age of 1950s America then I urge you to head down to Fatz’s Diner where you’ll find a thrill a minute!
