The Suncatcher Gigablox slot is a 5×3 reel low-medium volatility slot with mega symbols, and wilds that expand and give you a free re-spin of the reels, with a top win of 1,000x your bet.
We like it when we are given mobile slots that are easy to play and look beautiful. In fact, this Suncatcher Gigablox mobile slot has gorgeous gem theme that spins beautifully on 10 paylines that pay both ways.
If it sounds like it shares some DNA with the Starburst slot, you are not wrong. But that’s not to say that Yggdrasil studios don’t put their own unique twist onto the mechanics, very much making this machine your own.
The animations and sounds are beautiful, giving you a real feel for every win, thanks to 7 bright colourful symbols, including the wild which is a sparkly diamond that expands to cover the reel.
Casino slots don’t have to be complicated to be good. We know we’ve been led to believe that because of the popularity of Megaways slot machines, but sometimes you just want to spin 10 paylines.
In the Suncatcher slot, you are looking for two things: the first is the Gigablox themselves. You may remember them from other Yggdrasil games, but the idea is that within the reels you will find that two or three reels will join up and spin symbols that are 2×2 or 3×3 in size.
In other words, the linked reels of the Twin Spin slot, but done in a more interesting way. Is that a problem? No. We love this feature in all the games, and it certainly works here as you play to catch big symbols that pay both ways.
There are no free spins in this Suncatcher online slot, but that’s ok because what you get is the wild expand and cover the whole reel. Then you get a respin of the reels with that wild stuck in place.
If you get more diamond wilds, you’ll get more respins, up to 5 wild reels. And yes, that gives you 500x your bet, but it’s not the top win. That happens if you get 5 of a kind wins over all 10 paylines with the combination of a 3×3 Gigablox and some wild respins – that will give you 1,000x your bet.
It’s fun to watch and it’s a great combination of features that will get us to come back to play. Because that’s the goal at the end of the day: find a game that you can pick up and play without the danger of losing all your cash in 10 spins or less.

Win Both Ways: You can get wins on this 10 payline slot from left to right and from right to left.
Gigablox Feature: Gigablox are oversize symbols that spin either in a 2x2 or 3x3 formation, meaning that 2 or 3 reels will always show the same symbols.
Wild Respins: Each time a wild diamond lands, it will expand to cover the whole reel. Each spin where new wilds land awards a respin with all wild reels locked in their position. You can retrigger another respin if you catch another wild, up to a maximum of 5 wild reels and a top win of 500x your bet.
Golden Bet: Turning on the golden bet doubles your bet size (not the payout amounts) and gives you a 3x higher chance of landing wilds in the base game of this Suncatcher Gigablox slot.
We know that fans of big hit games like Immortal Romance Mega Moolah slot or the volatile Golden Glyph 2 slot will find this Yggdrasil game a little slow.
But we found it refreshing to play a game that's not hugely dangerous, with good wins where you get both expanded wilds with respins and mega symbols.
Suncatcher Gigablox slot is one of those easy to play mobile slots that you can pick up and play whenever and wherever you are, without having to commit a hundred spins in order to catch a special feature. Mostly because the special features happen often and on any spin.
