Games developer Yggdrasil has reintroduced its ‘iconic’ Moai giant statues, taking players back to the Polynesian paradise in Easter Island 2.

The operator‘s six reel video slot has between 25 and 55 paylines, and includes three bonus rounds – Colossal Blocks, Expanding Reels and Symbol Swap – all three of which include a Turbo Charge payout.

During the base game, if a winning symbol is a low value symbol it will replace all other low symbols on the re-spin, but if it is a high-value symbol, it will replace all other high icons on the res-spin.

Additionally, each winning spin awards a respin, and if a spin produces a six-of-a-kind win, the slot expands into a slot machine with an eight by six layout, resulting in the paylines increasing to the maximum of 55.

“The mischievous Moai are back and full of action,”  said Asko Hesikanen, Chief Gaming and Development Officer at Yggdrasil. “Every win triggers a respin which can lead to exceptional rewards.

“Watch out for a six-of-a-kind win which will trigger expanding reels. They’ll boom to a sky-high 8×6 matrix with 55 paylines which means not only more, but bigger wins. Features aside, the game’s layout has been designed with players completely in mind. We understand players’ mobile-first, portrait preference, so we build the games’ UX totally around them.”

When playing the Colossal Block feature, if four, five or six-of-a-kind combinations are landed, the ‘Colossal Blocks’ appear on the reels, boosting the player’s odds of hitting bigger wins.

Hesikanen added: “Easter Island 2 will see players enjoying every step with our favourite characters from a classic and well-loved Yggdrasil title.”
