Join the Courageous Warriors Looking for Highrise Respins 

Based on the popular GigaBlox Game Engagement Mechanic from Yggdrasil, the slot features six courageous warriors players can use to generate winning combinations across any of the 50 paylines

Each new spin will also bring at least one supersized symbol on the grid. Players who land a minimum of five shining gem symbols activate the Highrise Respins.

The GATI-powered game which has once again brought iconic historical and fictional characters to life has been described as “another superb addition to the YG Masters program” by Yggdrasil’s chief gaming officer, Mark McGinley. He also took the opportunity to praise the excellent work of the Hot Rise crew.
