Find Grinning Faces Deep in the Rain Forest for Cash
Big Blox is a 3-row, 5-reel, 243-‘Ways to Win’ video slot set in a rain forest with totem-like symbols framed by topsy-turvy stone and carved faces. The music and sound effects create a jungle adventure theme ambience. Every symbol has a face, and the eyes light up on wins! A ghostly aura surrounds winning combos adding an extra flair to gameplay.
As with most Yggdrasil slots, Big Blox can be set to display Balance, Total Bet and Win in either coins or cash along the bottom of the slot screen. To choose a Total Bet ranging from 25p-£100 at Mr Green, players must select a Coin Value (0.01 – 4.00). Coin Bets are fixed at 25 coins per spin. Coin Pays are listed in the Paytable and remain fixed despite changes made to the Coin Value. Big Blox automatically converts Coin Wins to currency and displays the cash value in the ‘win box.’ Coin Wins are displayed across the center of Big Blox’s slot screen.
Bix Blox has a total of 9 symbols with 1 special symbol and 8 regular. All Big Blox symbols can manifest as a ‘Big Block’ which takes up multiple symbol spaces. The special symbol is a Wild which can substitute for any other symbol but can’t form its own winning combinations. There are 4 high-paying regular symbols represented by grinning heads of different colours and 4 low-paying represented by card symbols. Listed in order of highest to lowest value, they include: Red (Head), Pink, Green, Blue, Heart, Spade, Clover and Diamond.
This online video slot features a 243 ‘Ways to Win,’ left to right gameplay. So, get 3+ matching symbols across adjacent reels starting from reel 1 to win. Matching symbols that also share the same reels can award multipliers. For example, if a spin yields 3 matching Diamonds on reel 1, 2 matching Diamonds on reel 2 and 1 Diamond on reel 3, then the 5 Coin Win would be awarded a multiplier of 6x (3 x 2 x 1) for a Total Win of 30 coins.
A glance at the Paytable reveals that players can profit along a single payline with 3+ Red Heads, 4+ high paying symbols or 5+ of any symbol. Of course, this is augmented by the 243 Ways to Win gameplay which awards additional multipliers. The recurring Big Blox Feature further increases the potential for big wins by adding blocks of matching symbols to the reels.
