Yggdrasil and Bad Dingo break the ice with GigaBlox™ hit Arctic Sorcerer
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Yggdrasil and ReelPlay have partnered to release Bad Dingo’s icy new adventure Arctic Sorcerer, a title featuring frosty big wins and the popular GigaBlox™ mechanic.

The latest YG Masters creation sees the title’s main protagonist, the Arctic Sorcerer, attempting to release his mystical animal companions and treasures from the ice for big wins.

The game’s main feature, Arctic Blast, can occur during the base game and the free spins mode, with the sorcerer modifying the reels with Mystery GigaBlox™ symbols, which then change into animals, gems, scatters, or wilds.

Yggdrasil’s popular GigaBlox™ mechanic sees the delivery of symbols from 2×2 to 5×5. After these symbols land, they split into regular-sized symbols leading to bigger wins.

When a player lands five or more scatters, between five and 15 free spins will be awarded. During the mode, wilds act as multipliers of x2 and up to 80 free spins can be triggered.

The game also has a wild collection counter and if five wild symbols land during free spins, an additional two spins are awarded. This continues until a total of 20 wild symbols have been collected.

Arctic Sorcerer is powered by GATI, Yggdrasil’s state-of-the-art technology enabling partners to employ the preconfigured, regulation-ready, standardised development toolkit to consistently produce cutting-edge content followed by rapid distribution.

Stuart McCarthy, Head of Product & Programs at Yggdrasil, said: “Adding another GigaBlox™ title to our YG Masters portfolio is great and highlights the popularity of our proprietary mechanic. Arctic Sorcerer is a great creation by Bad Dingo and creates an exciting experience with great win potential.”

David Johnson, CEO at ReelPlay, said: “ReelPlay is delighted to enable Bad Dingo’s latest creation to market. Yggdrasil’s YG Masters program provides ReelPlay’s partner studios the opportunity to distribute cleverly crafted slots games to a wide network of operator partners.”
