AvatarUX has introduced a brand-new mechanic in its GemPops slot.
Every spin starts with a variable reel height of between three and seven reels. Furthermore, a reel multiplier is assigned to each reel which increases every time there is a symbol win. The multiplier is awarded whenever it reaches maximum height.
The Popscade mechanic sees all winning symbols in a combination disappear, with fresh symbols cascading down from the heightened reel.
Three or more diamond symbols trigger the free spins mode, where players can use the Gamble Wheel to earn the chance for increased spins and a higher starting multiplier.
During the bonus, Xpops can be triggered, causing symbols to pop by a random amount from one to four times, while more spins can be unlocked if special bombs land on the reels.
GemPops also offers a Buy Bonus and Ante Bet in certain jurisdictions.
Nicola Longmuir, CEO at AvatarUX, said the new mechanic helps “further explore extended spins and expanded pay lines in every single spin.”
“We have made it our mission to create engaging, forward-looking games, mechanics, and products, and this is yet another example of the strides we’re taking as a slot studio,” Longmuir added.
