Yggdrasil Gaming have hit us with their latest title called Big Blox which is a 5-reel slot with the total of 243 winning ways. The game deals with a tribal theme and oozes an Aztec feel with stone blocks of different colours and sizes as the main characters in this game.
Graphics and audio are perhaps the best thing about this game, since Big Blox really has neat visual details and engaging sounds that complement the theme.
What We Love
The Aztec theme is always a good choice to go by as it can offer mystery, adventure and all other ingredients required for an exciting game. Yggdrasil Gaming have put a lot of effort in creating a visually appealing game and their aim was achieved, that is for sure. Big Blox is a game that features an exciting approach with 2×2 blocks and bigger dropping with each spin.
We love it that this feature can significantly increase your winning potential, since all of the wins created are multiplied by a number of icons your big block is composed of. In example a three of a kind win with a 2×2 block and a single symbol on the third reel will multiply your win by four which is a neat feature, we will all agree.
The game features a shiny Wild that is available as a normal-size symbol and as a Big Block which additionally enhances your chance of landing big wins. The luckiest of players will be presented with an opportunity to land 3,888x your stake as the highest win, which can make your time worthwhile.
What We Do Not Like
To be honest, we were pretty excited when we saw the graphic outlay of this game, but we ended up feeling disappointed with the game’s features. We actually thought that Big Blox would be a more engaging slot with different bonus features, Free Spins and progressive jackpots that would have really made it a proper Aztec adventure. Instead, we got a game without any real special features, a straightforward and a tedious game that will bore you after a couple of minutes.
Your reels will be filled with big blocks that for the most time will do nothing to improve your wins or make them stand out leaving you earning for that shiny Wild to save the day.
Every spin is exactly the same, Yggdrasil should have incorporated a bonus round that would in example take you through a cave or into a volcano for a whole new experience. Something like this would have shaken things up significantly. Unfortunately, this way we are left with a quite boring game that has nothing to boast for.
We hate it when our final verdict is this negative, but Big Blox video slot is a game that really is not worth your time. Your high expectations will not be adequately met and you will neither win any money nor have any fun spinning the reels. The summer of 2016 has brought plenty of exciting titles around and Big Blox will most likely be quickly left behind.
