Bigger, better, faster and stronger have all been used by marketing companies in new product campaigns. Gaming software content developers lean heavily towards innovation when it comes to an improved offering.
Player immersion and the overall gameplay experience are two key priorities in any new game release. NetEnt is more than just a pioneer in the gaming content industry. Yet, this company is willing to play the role when it comes to new game mechanics.
The latest release is called Gods of Gold; InfiniReels. This is the first release in a brand new planned portfolio which offers unlimited ways to win. The game’s central theme is the tomb of an ancient Mesopotamia King. The unique three reel, three row design has been described as a highly volatile gaming experience.
Players receive a new reel to the right side of the play area with every win. This also multiplies the number of bet ways by three starting at 27. This works to build anticipation with every new spin.
The Win Spins feature is activated when three or more scatters appear in the main game. The engagement factor of this feature guarantees a winning bet way on every single spin. Players can get on a hot streak to maximize their payout potential.
“Gods of Gold: InfiniReels is a major release in our roadmap. And it is the perfect game to premiere our infinite bet ways concept – a mechanic which we have big plans for over the next year. We can’t wait for players to experience the excitement of InfiniReels. And hope the mechanic will become a true fan favorite of our portfolio as we continue to explore its full potential.”
The Return to Player (RTP) for this game is 96.21 percent. Using euros as the primary currency, the minimum bet is 0.20 all the way up to 100.00 as a max. A sample screen shot shows the initial three reels with three rows. It also displays four additional InfiniReels. The original 3×3 design starts with 27 ways to win. The game could theoretically expand to 17 reels. Chances to win increase with every added reel.
The game is also equipped with a minimap and symbol counter. This helps a player monitor any wins in real time. The Free Spins bonus rounds offers 10 free Win Spins when three Scatters are collected anywhere on the reels. Each additional scatter will trigger an extra five free Win Spins. The official count for Win Spins frequency is 1 in 198 spins.
There is no end to how many times Win Spins can be re-triggered. Being the first in a series with the InfiniReels mechanic, NetEnt scored high grades with this release.
