Yggdrasil And AvatarUX Launch Innovative WildPops SlotPublished July 22, 2020 by Arthur M
WildPops is a new slot from Yggdrasil and partner studio AvatarUX. It's the second game to use the PopWins mechanism.
WildPops is an Asian-themed online slot with a difference. It's the latest game from Yggdrasil and AvatarUX to use the PopWins mechanism, where winning symbols are replaced by 2 others. This boosts the number of ways to win from a stating level of 486, to a maximum of 33,614.
Cartoon Characters With An Asian Influence
The symbols on the 5 reels include playing card emblems, along with cartoonish pigs, dragons, fish, and other creatures. These stylish symbols sit within a set of reels that's flanked by wood-effect poles that record the number of winning ways and active rows.
The PopWins feature continues to add 2 symbols for every 1 in a win, for as long as new winning combinations are created. At the end of a sequence, the reels return to a basic 3 rows high.
If players land 3 wins in a sequence, 2 random wild symbols appear, making it easier for the run to continue. More wilds appear at random after 6th and 9th wins.
Enter The Bonus Mode
If all reels hold at least 7 symbols from PopWins, players enter a Bonus Mode, and earn 3 lives. At the end of a series of wins, instead of reducing back down to 3 rows, they lose a life and the reels stay expanded for a respin. A rising multiplier is added to any wins in Bonus mode.
Play WildPops Slot Online
WildPops is available in desktop and mobile versions. It's a high volatility game with average returns of 96.8%, where maximum prizes can reach 17,707x the triggering bet.
Commenting on the game, Marcus Honney, Managing Director at AvatarUX, said: “Our latest PopWins™ game contains all the thrilling excitement of our feature mechanic with a fun theme and massive win potential. Any spin can get the Popping started and give players thrilling experiences.
“Our partnership with Yggdrasil continues to go from strength to strength and we look forward to it growing for many years.”
