Golden Fish Tank 2 Gigablox Slot Review

Diving into the fish tank and taking part in the exciting features and incredible diversity among the Fish, Golden Fish Tank 2 Gigablox by Yggdrasil is like heading down to a small aquarium. The lucrative fishbowl is alive again, although touching and mixing an already perfect creation, aka the original, is a susceptible subject, but here it is, phenomenal creativity at its best. The vast mix of features and the richness of the content are all elegantly intertwined. Everything is undoubtedly better down where it's wetter.

Fishkeeping is a hobby/hobbyist. Golden Fish Tank 2 is not too fishy. Say what? What's too fishy?

Game Play

On the default 4-row grid, players will get 25 paylines to hit winning combinations of three to six of a kind. Low pay symbols are the one made up of the four card suits, which is incredible, while the four high pays look like really bewildered versions of the four Fish into the original. The landing six premium symbols on a winning line are worth 6 to 12 times the stake. Once at 20x, the bet for a line of six is the wild symbol on - it placed anywhere to replace any other pay symbol. Features include a mix of old and fresh, whereas Gigablox plus the Golden Bet, we find free spins, a treasure chest feature, and a buy bonus. Treasure chests can be noticed on the last reel and always award a prize even if they are only partially in view, not fully. A bunch of bubbles across the screen, popping one at a time until just one will remain to award its prize. It could be 2-500x the bet or 5-16 free spins in the base game. It is very possible to win 2-500x the bet in free spins or 1-5 extra free spins—the bigger the chest, the better the average prize. Landing at least five scatter symbols in the base game triggers the free spins feature. The number of free spins symbols is the number of awarded spins. Next, players will receive a random number of feature picks. You always get one extra feature pick here if you are using the Golden Bet. However, with no happiness, you can gamble for more. To do so, three starfish appear on the screen. Players can pick one, and if it reveals gold, you win another feature pick. On the other hand, you are sent back to the base game if it reveals a black starfish. A bunch of undersea items may appear on the screen for the featured pick. Players need to click the objects one by one to reveal these modifiers: Wild Fish – one of the top fish symbols is turned wild and crazy. x2 Multiplier – will apply to all wins in free spins too. Expanded Reels – 2 rows will be added to the reels, allowing Gigablox up to 6x6. Extra Wild – 1 or 2 wilds are placed in random positions on each free spin. Fish Stacks – one fish symbol type may land stacked on the reels all the time. Extra Free Spins – from 1 to 5 free spins will be added to the total. Players get two options for the bonus round. And the standard bet option awards 5-16 free spins for 60x the total stake in total. Next is with the Golden Bet switched on, so players get the +1 pick; this costs 100x the stake. You could see that Gigablox has taken to Yggdrasil's classic like a fish to water. Sorry, that was such a good example, but for sure, describe Golden Fish Tank 2 quite well. Yggdrasil hasn't tinkered with the wrapper much, and players who liked the simple underwater scene of the first game will be chuffed around that the studio has largely left it alone. It's pretty simple, so if nothing fascinating is happening on the reels, it might be tempting to zone out for a bit to watch the Fish do their thing.


Most of the people like to get out amongst nature, wrestle Fish, show them who's boss and maybe haul a few onto land. Others focus on bringing nature to them and watch Fish do laps in a fishbowl, maybe swim in and out of trim, very small shipwrecks or plastic weeds. Any players in the latter group might be tempted by the attractive sequel as Yggdrasil's classic 2016 themed slot Golden Fish Tank. The fresh version, Golden Fish Tank 2 Gigablox, has been modernised in many ways while keeping the bubbly aquatic feel that helped make the first one a hit. It's very funny. Despite having the famous words' Fish Tank' in the title, neither game appears like they are set in a fish tank. There's just too many weeds, sands and bubbles going on. If anything, Golden Fish Tank 2 you may notice that it looks older than the original and far more basic from a visual perspective as well. The game has been created plenty of charm though, the masses of Fish lining its very transparent grid have a dose of Pixar-like loveable goofiness about them. The waves of relaxation are intensified by the aquatic inspired relaxing music, as a similar set of pleasant popping sounds play when reels stop spinning or win count-up. One of the key changes will be the use of Yggdrasil's Gigablox mechanic. The studio has figurate this out to a number of its partners, for a better or worse, yet it works like a charm in Golden Fish Tank 2. The game has six reels. However, in the base game, reels merge on every spin to create Gigablox symbols sized 2x2, 3x3, or 4x4. Gigablox symbols will break down into regular 1x1 sized symbols for the payout evaluation when part of a win. The game is available on any device, and bets range from 25 p/c to £/€100 per spin. If you engage the Golden Bet feature now, bets will increase by 20%. You will get an extra feature pick when free spins trigger.


Mathematically, things have moved on from the original. Volatility has been increased from medium to medium-high, and RTP has remained about the same at 96%. Yggdrasil has created the game to avoid experiencing a lot of downtimes. Gigablox will keep you second-guessing, intermittently linking up into something very decent, and free spins seem to trigger quite a lot on their own, without any need for activating the bonus buy policy. Like real-life fishing, the pick feature could be torturous, hard, especially when you've maxed the number of picks and not collected anything. The x2 multiplier and the reel expanding modifier, and chances are your wins are not going to be all that impressive.

Max Coin

Maximum win of x 5,000.


If you compared to other Gigablox games Yggdrasil has done, Golden Fish Tank 2 isn't as exhilarating, but it goes for a different angle. You can notice a nice balance between chilling with nature and finely tuned mathematics with a much higher performer than the first one. However, if you haven't tested or played it for a while, it'll be shocking to see how the game advertising wins of up to x300. Probably this was no big deal back in 2016 when Golden Fish Tank was first released, but it seems bizarrely quaint compared to Golden Fish Tank 2's stated 5,000x max win figure. The original was a massive success with its, at the time, cutting edge technology, remarkable design. Golden Fish Tank 2 integrates Gigablox like it was meant to be, yet there is a lingering feeling that the producers could have tried a wee bit harder.
