AvatarUX rolls out a new iteration of its hit mechanic in Irish-themed Pop O’Gold™
28th March 2023 – Award-winning slots studio AvatarUX has released its first Irish-themed game, Pop O’Gold™, featuring new and exciting mechanic- StickyPop™.
StickyPop™ is a variation of the innovative supplier’s hit mechanic PopWins™, and sees winning combinations remain on the reels while an entire new set of symbols tumble from above.
Each reel can increase from three to five symbols high in base play and seven in free spins. When no new sticky symbols are possible, the spin ends.
At the beginning of each spin, there is the chance that two or more reels can become boosted. These can see all symbols landing having a multiplier attached for significantly increased win potential.
If all reels reach five icons high, the free spins mode is activated. Prior to this, players can utilise the Gamble Wheel feature, which can increase the number of spins awarded.
During this mode, there is a starting multiplier of 2x for every win, which increases by 1x for every accumulated win, leading to huge wins of up to 20,000x.
In certain jurisdictions, players can progress directly to free spins via one of two Buy Bonus options, the Magic Bonus or Max Magic Bonus.
Pop O’Gold™ is the latest launch from AvatarUX to contain a proprietary mechanic, with its offering now boasting four different marquee ones – PopWins™ with its ZapReel™ and StickyPop™ variations and MultiPop™.
The game is initially available exclusively to AvatarUX’s partners with direct integrations and will be rolled out globally later.
Nicola Longmuir, CEO at AvatarUX, said: “We’re delighted to roll out our unique twist on the popular Irish-themed genre, with a darker take in Pop O’Gold™. Adding on the PopWins™ experience with the brand new StickyPop™ mechanic allows us to explore new models and features, and we’re incredibly excited about its potential.”
“We want to continue to add thrilling new games and concepts to our product offering, and Pop O’Gold™ is no exception as we push the boundaries of what’s possible in a slot experience.”
