25th August 2022 – Award-winning slots studio AvatarUX invites players to travel amongst the stars with space creatures in its latest launch, CritterPop™.
The 3×5 base title offers an initial 486 ways to win, which expands as winning lines are formed, incorporating the incredibly popular PopWins™ mechanic. This sees each winning symbol replaced by two more, increasing reel height and adding further paylines. Each reel can reach six symbols tall in base play.
Three or more scatter symbols will launch the Free Spins mode, offering the potential for reels to grow up to 8x in height, and starting from a minimum paylines of 2,048.
Before entering the mode, a Reward Reel awaits, offering more spins, a higher starting multiplier, mega symbols (2×2 or 3×3), random wilds or bigger multipliers among others, to ensure the bonus mode provides maximum excitement to players, while also offering alternative experiences every time it is triggered.
For every win in the bonus round, the multiplier grows by 1x. If a reel is unlocked to full height, then a 2x multiplier is awarded, as well as two additional spins.
In certain jurisdictions, players can progress directly to the bonus through one of three separate bonus buy options.
CritterPop™ becomes the latest launch from AvatarUX, which has continued to impress with its array of innovative slots, powered by the studio’s proprietary mechanics such as PopWins™ and the most recently announced MultiPop™. The studio was named Rising Star at the 2022 EGR B2B Awards.
The game is initially released exclusively to AvatarUX’s partners with direct integrations and will be rolled out globally on the 17th October.
Nicola Longmuir, CEO at AvatarUX, said: “We’re thrilled to launch our latest PopWins™ hit, CritterPop™.
“Taking place in outer space where strange creatures run amok, the engaging, high volatility hit brings plenty of excitement in both base play and through the comprehensive Reward Reel, which can transform any Free Spins round.”
