Yggdrasil enjoys retro resurgence in Jokrz Wild UltraNudge™ GigaBlox™


Yggdrasil partnered up with Bang Bang Games for the latest iteration of the thrilling and popular Jokrz Wild series, enhancing the gameplay with a number of exciting elements.

Jokrz Wild UltraNudge™ GigaBlox™ evokes the classic fruit machine era but with engaging modern twists. Chief among them is Yggdrasil’s hugely popular Game Engagement Mechanic (GEM) GigaBlox. This sees at least two reels merge on every spin to create mammoth symbols of anywhere from 2×2 to 4×4 in size in this 6×4 slot.

The UltraNudge feature activates when any win that includes a wild occurs and continues until no more wins are present. This nudges each reel down one space, and can deliver long win streaks. This is a potentially potent combination when paired with GigaBlox! In addition, multiplier symbols can land on any reel, increasing the active value of it by x1 to x3. These remain active during an UltraNudge win and do not reset during the free spins.

Five or more bonus symbols trigger the free spins mode. During the bonus round, an extra spin is awarded for every bonus that lands while multipliers can increase significantly and an UltraNudge is triggered on every win, rather than just with wilds.

The Gamble feature is also present in the title, before entering the free spins mode. If a gamble is successful, the starting multiplier is 2x and all collected multipliers in the bonus are doubled!
In certain jurisdictions, players can progress directly to the bonus round via a Buy Bonus.

Jokrz Wild UltraNudge GigaBlox 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: “Jokrz Wild UltraNudge GigaBlox incorporates two incredibly popular mechanics, and an exhilarating retro theme, into one fantastic package for players to enjoy.

“The YG Masters program continues to facilitate the creation of excellent games, and Bang Bang Games has been able to bring its unique style and feel to the wider industry due to it.”
Frank McPolin, Managing Director at Bang Bang Games, said: “Jokrz Wild UltraNudge GigaBlox brings a combination of strong-performing mechanics, a proven theme and fantastic win potential in one great game.

“We’re very proud of our continued work as part of the YG Masters initiative, and we’re able to utilise the GEMs to expand on our bold ideas to create great games for our fans globally.”
