The first Gigablox slot from Yggdrasil comes out strong as this Lucky Neko mobile slot where any symbol can turn into any size over the 6 reels.
Or, for that matter, look at this Lucky Neko slot with its cute little anime cats and big blocks of symbols. Set in the background of a souvenir shop, you can see Bonsai trees, pretty dolls and calligraphy in the background.
But what makes it particularly special is that fact that any symbol, including the wild or scatter, can come as a Gigablox, or a Mega symbol. In short, you’ll find singular symbols, but intermittent between, reels can join up and give you symbols that are 2×2, 3×3, 4×4, 5×5 and 6×6 in size.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that Lucky Neko Gigablox is a low variance game, but the good thing about those blocks is that you can see them light up the reels before the symbols have even touched down.
It makes every spin a little bit exciting, not unlike the Twin Spin slot, as you know that two, three or five reels can all spread out and display massive stacks of symbols.
What you want, of course, is a 5×5 wild symbol, which can give you wins of over 500x to 1,000x your bet. It’s a wonder to watch, but it doesn’t happen often.
What does happen often is that you get lots of little wins often, which can fool you into a false sense of security. But don’t worry, it’s all part of the excitement.
And they are not that hard to catch. Maybe every 50 or so spins by getting 5 or more scatters. You only get 5 free spins, but the good news is that every time you get a scatter in the free spins bonus round you get an extra spin added.
You’ll want all the spins you can get, mostly because you go from 40 to 85 paylines as the reels expand to give you 8 rows of symbols.
Better yet, one symbol will be ‘blessed’ which is an odd way of saying that one symbol will now be worth 5x its paytable value. You mostly want it to be a middle symbol, so you get lots of it and you can walk away with over 1,000x your bet.
To get anywhere near the 6,953x times your bet max win though, you’ll need the highest paid symbol to be blessed and to get very lucky.
It’s not an easy game, it’s somewhere in the higher variance scale, but this Lucky Neko slot has a fun energy and a great top win. Plus, much like other Yggdrasil slot games, it has one of the lowest minimum bets around at 0.08 a spin for a 40 payline game, allowing any budget to join in, even if you are a high limit player and like to gamble 100 a spin.

Wild: The golden cat (or is it Fox?) is the wild symbol and subtitutes for all other symbols except for the scatter.
Gigablox: On any spin, any of the symbols can land as a Gigablox. The size of these is 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, 5x5 and 6x6. This includes wilds and scatters.
Free Spin Symbols: Land 5+ free spin symbols in the base game to triggers the free spins. You get one free spin per scatter symbol. And then the reels expand to 6x8 and there are 85 paylines.
Each free spins symbol that lands on the reels during the Lucky Neko bonus game adds 1 additional free spin.
What makes this particularly fun is that one symbol is 'blessed'. That symbols payout is now increased to 5x times its value for the whole free spins session. You can't have the wilds and free spins scatter as the blessed symbol.
There is something incredibly fun about the Gigablox in this Lucky Neko slot on mobile, and the fact that it looks incredible just helps tip this into a 4-star slot review.
The fact that you can win 6,953x your bet just adds to the enjoyment. Because you do get a whole load of little wins, giving this an animation that adds a little extra thrill.
But don't be fooled, the big wins are in the free spins where you get 85 paylines and those mega blocks really come into their own.
