Big Blox is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot which is powered by Yggdrasil Gaming. Available to play on desktop, mobile and tablet devices from 25p to £100 per spin, it has an aboriginal theme and is set in the rainforest/jungle with plenty of scary masks on the reels.
Theme wise, it looks fantastic – it has 10 regular symbols and 1 wild symbol. The backdrop is a rainforest/jungle with the reel set encased by haunting totem poles. Based on aboriginal people, it has a thumping soundtrack which is quite upbeat. As you spin the reels, you will hear most traditional native music and sounds.
In terms of the 243 ways to win, there are no paylines as such with any combination of 3 or more subsequent symbols from left to right rewarding you with a win. The highest paying symbol is the red and yellow mask which rewards you with 400 times your line stake for 5 on a payline.
Big Blox is all about the Big Block feature – a rectangle is selected on every single spin. All symbols that land within the rectangle will always be identical to one another. The rectangle can occupy and a 2×2 area but can also come in larger sizes with a possible 5×3 rectangle covering the entire area!
The wild symbol, the gold mask with wild on it, substitutes for all symbols. However, and if you’re lucky, you can benefit from a Big Block wild. If you get this on a big rectangle, wins can be huge – if you were to get a 3×3 rectangle filled by the wild, you’d get 3 fully wild reels.
Big Blox has the potential to pay out a whopping 3,888 times your stake on every single spin – this will occur if you get a Big Block wild across all reels (so a 5×3 rectangle). I found Big Blox to be a medium to high variance game – don’t expect big wins very often at all though. Patience is required to get a big rectangle with the wild inside.
