Dive into crystal clear waters in search of sunken treasures on the slot from Yggdrasil Gaming. Atlantean Gigarise is taking you on a volatile quest across five dynamic reels to find the sunken Greek island. At your disposal are wild substitutions, the Rising Reels feature, a bonus game and a free spins round that can lead to wins of up to 4,370 times your bet. Plus, there are five progressive jackpots to be won.
Atlantean Gigarise is a progressive jackpot slot with dynamic five reels, three rows and 243 ways to win as default. Throughout the gameplay, the format can increase up to a 5×8 size with a maximum of 32,768 ways. Pays are awarded for three to five matching symbols landing on adjacent reels from left to right only. You can dive into the deep waters on desktop, tablet or mobile from 0.20 to 40 credits per spin. The game has high volatility with an RTP of 96%.
Get your diving gear ready as you are about to descend into deep waters when you load the game. A fictional scene from the much fabled yet never found sunken island of Atlantis is in the background of the game window that itself is held between columns of an ancient Parthenon. The five displays for the progressive jackpots are naturally the main attraction on the game, although the overall design is very pleasing to the eye.
The pay symbols start at the low end with ancient Greek-style card royals from 10 through to A, awarding across the board 0.40x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are followed by amphorae, harps, sword and shield sets, helmets and a golden artefact with a red gem. Hit five across the reels to win 1x to 2x your stake. A temple column marked with the word itself is the wild, substituting for all regular pay symbols while an open clam with a pearl acts as the scatter. Lastly, a trident symbol can land on all reels and will set the GigarRise mechanic in motion.
Atlantean GigaRise Slot Features
Countless legends and tales surround the fabled sunken island of Atlantis, supposedly located in the Mediterranean Sea although no definite geographical placement has been confirmed to date. Unsurprisingly, the mysterious Atlantis has been used countless times for slot games. Yggdrasil is adding now their take, so, let’s have a closer look what hidden treasures we can find on this occasion.
Core to the gameplay is the newly introduced GigaRise mechanic that will gradually increase the game window from the default 5×3 size and 243 ways up to the maximum of 32,768 with then 8 rows. Opening the game for the first time will see you start with a random configuration. Any time a trident symbol lands on a reel, it will raise the height of the same reel by one symbol position, and as such is adding more betways which in turn provides the potential for bigger wins. Badly needed, I might add, as the line pays for all symbols are rather low. The reel height will not reset between spins until it reaches the top and triggers the Bonus Game.
Any time, a reel has reached the maximum height with 8 rows and another anchor symbols lands on the same reel, it will award the Bonus Game. Four levels – Bronze, Silver, Gold and Legendary – are available. In the base game, one of the first 3 will be randomly chosen while the Legendary Bonus Game can only be triggered during the Free Spins feature (more to that shortly). Each level has different prizes that can be won repeatedly except for the five jackpots, which can be won once each per round only. The reel that triggered the bonus game will reset to the default 3-symbol height once the feature has concluded.
- Bronze & Silver Bonus Game: Cash prizes at 1x, 2x, 3x, 5x, 10x 25x, 50x and 100x bet, 20 to 80 Free Spins, 1 to 5 Jackpots.
- Gold Bonus Game: Cash prizes at 2x, 3x, 5x, 10x 25x, 50x, 100x bet and 200x to 80 Free Spins, 1 to 5 Jackpots.
- Legendary Bonus Game: Cash prizes at 10x 25x, 50x, 100x and 200x bet, 20 to 80 Free Spins, 1 to 5 Jackpots.
All four Bonus Games start on a new reel layout with a single highlighted row in the centre and only bonus symbols on the reel strips. Initially, the spin counter is set to three and any bonus symbol landing on the row will reset it to three and award the corresponding prize. A jackpot is won when the symbol lands on the centre row, awarding the jackpot shown on top of the respective reel.
- Reel 1 –Forgotten Jackpot: Seed value at €40.
- Reel 2 – Rare Jackpot: Seed value at €200.
- Reel 3 – Mythical Jackpot: Seed value at €600.
- Reel 4 – Ancient Jackpot: Seed value at €1,500.
- Reel 5 – Legendary Jackpot: Seed value at €15,000.
The five progressives are pooled jackpots across the entire Yggdrasil network and also connected to those on the Jackpot Raiders slot, which can only mean that they will grow faster and bigger than before. A fixed 3.8% of each bet is contributing to the five jackpots while they will reset to the seed value once they have been won.
Any won Free Spins will be played once the Bonus Game has ended. Alternatively, you can trigger 20, 40 or 80 Free Spins in the base game by landing three, four and five clam scatters respectively. During the feature, two to five scatters will retrigger 5 to 80 free spins, no limits. The round starts with the default 5×3 size and 243 ways with the three bonus games now in a fixed order – Bronze on reels 1 and 5, Silver on reels 2 and 4 and Gold on reel 3. The aim will be to land sufficient trident symbols to trigger any of the bonus games before you run out of spins.
The respective bonus game is triggered once you land another trident symbol on a fully expanded reel. It will play out in the same fashion as on a normal trigger, however, once it ends, it will be upgraded to Legendary level. Should you manage to increase the same reel again to maximum height, it will award the Legendary Bonus Game which has more symbols with the bigger prizes of up to 200x bet as well as additional jackpot and free spins symbols on the reel strips. The feature ends when you run out of free spins.
Atlantean Gigarise is a real stunner for visuals and animations, very much the standard we got to see from the creative folks at Yggdrasil Gaming. The gameplay itself is just as engaging and suspenseful with an endless choice of variations on the reel height, number of bet ways and bonus prizes. The main focus will be on the progressive jackpots with the top one estimated to trigger in low 6-figure ranges.
