Online Slots With Blocks Of Symbols


Since the last few years games suppliers have used mega symbols in some of their video slots. The symbols appear as a single image in a block but work as identical symbols in each cell of the block. Mega symbols enhance the visual appeal of the slot game to start with. They also tend to increase the volatility. If a block becomes a part of a winning combination it tends to create a number of winning paylines. In the best slots, the mega symbols are innovatively blended with gaming features. Here is a look at some video slots with mega symbols that have remained popular after the initial draw.

Spinata Grande was one of the first video slots to use colossal symbols. This NetEnt title is live at Golden Palace online casino. The high paying symbols are colourful pinatas that can appear as blocks of 2x2 or 3x3. The colossal Bonus symbol triggers the Mini Slot feature that reveals 3, 6 or 9 Mini Slot symbols. These are bronze, silver or gold coins that award payouts of 20, 40 and 80 coins respectively. If you land three star pinata symbols in this feature you will be awarded 5 free spins. During the free spins a colossal 3x3 wild symbol can appear on the reels.

Halloween and Playboy Gold are branded slots at Microgaming online casinos like Royal Vegas. Halloween has five reels, out of which three adjacent reels have four rows and two have three rows. The set with four rows can wander in any spin and come to rest in any one of three possible positions. The Wandering Reels may contain 3x4 blocks of the high paying symbols and this increases the payout potential. Playboy Gold has 6 reels, 10 rows. The four central reels spin together but without wandering. The high paying symbols are four Playboy Bunnies. They appear in the central reels as 4x6 jumbo blocks. If you get the full jumbo block of any of the girls you may trigger the Respins feature.

Jungle Giants is from Playtech and live at Omni Casino. The high paying symbols are the jungle animals like elephant, rhinoceros, gorilla, hippopotamus and buffalo. These symbols, along with the wild symbol, can appear as giant 3x3 symbols across reels 2, 3 and 4. Since these symbols appear stacked on the other reels, it is possible to fill all 15 spaces with the same high symbol. The game logo appears as a 3x3 giant symbol. If it fully covers the middle reels you will be awarded 8 free spins in which low paying symbols are removed from the reels and the high symbols necessarily appear as giant symbols.
