Yggdrasil Thrills With New Slots Mechanics

Keri Cairns - 04-01-2021

2020 was a phenomenal year for online casino developer and distributor Yggdrasil, and now, players are hoping that 2021 will be much the same. Not only did the company this year join up with several more independent YG Masters partners, but they also developed and released an incredible three new in-game slots mechanics – Gigablox, MultiMAX, and Splitz.

Since the Yggdrasil team first received their licence in 2013, they’ve only managed to every year grow larger, more visible, and globally more acclaimed yet – and judging by the quality of the superb slots mechanics they’ve managed to come up with this past year alone, we’re bound to see a whole lot more come from the turnkey developer/B2B supplier/global distributor in future.


Gigablox was a mechanic many months in the making. Production time spanned roughly nine months from the date on which the initial idea was pitched to the finished product.

Though fifteen developers, artists, and online casino game production specialists worked on the slot from start to finish, the concept was very much a unified response to a demand for a mechanic that would essentially make larger wins possible in an interesting new way – preferable unlike anything already known to the industry.

The end-result was a mechanic that allows symbols to reach up to a gigantic 4x4 times their original size – and once the Free Spins feature has been triggered, a phenomenal 6x6 times the size of basegame symbols. Needless to say, Gigablox proved an instant hit.


Splitz was in actual fact the first new slots mechanic launched by Yggdrasil last year.

Boosting player engagement and active interaction, Splitz is a true builder of anticipation. It does this by allowing Mystery Symbols to drop down onto the slot’s reels without revealing right off the bat how many symbols a single icon is about to split into. Up to an incredible 12 symbols can be created per stack, opening up the potential for massive big wins like never before – not to mention even up to 200,000 ways to win.


MultiMAX is all about creating a unique approach to Multipliers.

How the slot’s feature works is that after every winning combination, all those reels responsible for at least a single symbol contribution to the eventual combination will have their corresponding Multipliers applied to that particular win.

For example: a 4-of-a-kind winning combo registered as such from left to right would then have the win for that round Multiplied by 4 Multipliers on reels 1, 2, 3, and 4. MultiMAX – a fantastic way to reinvigorate an existing feature in superb new ways. 

Anyone who enjoys Yggdrasil online casino games will fast become familiar with these features, and should be looking forward to what the brand does next.
