As you’ll have guessed from the title, Mega Pearl entertains Gigablox as one of the major bonus features included in the base game. The next big thing is the hold & spin style respin feature which acts as the main bonus round. Depending on the location, the buy bonus option might also come as part of the game allowing easy access to respins at an extra cost of 80x your stake.
A golden dragon fittingly appears as the wild. It substitutes for all other symbols except pearls to help complete wins. Additionally, wilds pay up to 7.5x your bet for 6 icons on an active payline.
Glistening pearls are the scatter symbols you’ll want to look out for in the base game. They don’t pay anything, but a set of 6 or more can activate the respin feature.
The titled Gigablox mechanic helps create giant symbols of 2×2, 3×3 and 4×4 anywhere on the reels, making the base game a little more interesting. Any symbols can land as oversized blocks, including wilds and scatters.
Triggered with 6 or more pearl scatters, the bonus round awards 3 respins, during which all triggering scatters lock in their places and reveal values from 1x to 1,000x. Any new pearls landing will also stay locked for the duration of the round, awarding further cash and resetting your respins counter to the original 3. Best of all, if you happen to create a 2×2, 3×3 or 4×4 size mega pearl during the bonus round, not only will you have all individual values added together, but also multiplied by 2x.
ReelPlay clearly have had reservation about including a jackpot feature, but they didn’t hold back when fixing the game’s max potential to an impressive 16,297x your stake.
Fully optimised for Android and iOS devices by the developer, Mega Pearl Gigablox can be played on both your phone and tablet, making it the perfect mobile slot.
