Yggdrasil prepares for cascading thriller in Crystal Falls MultiMax™
Yggdrasil has rolled out the first YG Masters hit incorporating its thrilling Game Engagement Mechanic (GEM) MultiMax™, Crystal Falls MultiMax™, together with Bulletproof Games.
The 3×5 slot features cascading reels, where all winning symbols are removed, allowing new symbols to fall in their place. Cascade+ is a mechanic where the chaining of multiple wins increases the players’ position on the free spins trail – the further they climb the more spins are awarded. Four or more successful cascades trigger free spins, where the MultiMax™ mechanic comes to life.
During the bonus round whenever a wild symbol lands, it increases the individual reels MultiMax™ multiplier, with each reel possessing its own multiplier count. Every payline win is then multiplied by all multipliers involved in each win. The multiplier count is not reset until the end of free spins, with a total possible multiplier of 3,125x.
In Crystal Falls MultiMax™ there is the chance to use the Encore Game Mode which allows players to significantly enhance their free spins hit frequency at a cost of 50% more of their stake. By converting two losing positions into a respin, players have an extra chance to improve their trail position. In certain jurisdictions, Crystal Falls MultiMax™ also features a Buy A Bonus option, allowing players to immediately progress to free spins.
Crystal Falls MultiMax™ is the first YG Masters title to incorporate one of Yggdrasil’s innovative Game Engagement Mechanics (GEM). MultiMax™ is one of four GEMs offered by Yggdrasil with the mechanics featuring in the supplier’s own titles as well as being available to YG Masters partners to include into their own game development, with several studios already signing up to the offering.
