Gods of Gold Infinireels slot review
Gods of Gold Infinireels slot by Netent must surely be as a result of their collaboration with ReelPlay who made an InfinityReels slot called El Dorado. Here we have the grid over a background of a treasure chamber with spooky music and unnerving sound effects as the reels land and expand. So far so good, there have been many Aztec-themed games in the past of varying quality, from Play'n Go's dreary Aztec Warrior Princess to Pragmatic Play's rather good Aztec Bonanza slot. So will we be adding some of this mysterious lost treasure to our bankroll any time soon?
On The Reels...
In keeping with the ReelPlay mechanic mentioned above, Netents' Gods of Gold Infinireels slot begins with 3 reels of 3 rows each with infinite ways i.e. no fixed pay lines as all wins pay on consecutive reels left-to-right. Symbols can appear stacked and you begin with 27 ways, after a win you get 4 reels and 81 ways and if another matching symbol is added you now get 5 reels and 243-ways and so-on. Gold Wilds can appear from reel 4 onward only and Sun scatters on any of them. Pays are listed for 3-of-a-kind right up to 10OAK and I'll show the extremities here of 10 and 3 OAK wins. Chief 160/1.25x bet, Queen 64/0.5x, Bull 48/0.25x, Eagle 32/0.25x with four card suits of 9.6 down to 4.8x for 10OAK and all paying 0.05x for 3OAK. Basically, after 5OAK all the hits are doubled for each subsequent symbol added!
There are a couple of random enhancements in that you might get get a random re-spin of the right-hand reel if a matching symbol didn't turn up on it at the first opportunity. A Multi Slam may randomly add 2 or even 3 reels instead of a single one, after any win.
When you collect 3 Sun scatters, you get 10 win spins and 5 more for any scatter over the 3 and they can be retriggered. This will begin once the spin triggering it has been paid. If you're wondering how to keep track of an ever increasing amount of reels, there is a linear tracking image beneath the reels which tells you where you are as you can only see a maximum of 6 before the left reel disappears from view!
Gods of Gold Infinireels slot is based on a mechanic by ReelPlay that in all honesty I didn't think worked that well when they did it a while ago. That said, it's got a reasonable 96.21% RTP and is moderately entertaining and you cannot fault the sounds and animations. Win frequency is naturally quite low here but it does become fairly watchable once the reels expand form say 5 onward as wins then double for each extra symbols added. The win spins don't tend to yield too much and can be hard to trigger, but there is potential there if you're lucky. These Gods may have gold, but I can't say they're infinitely exciting...
