It easily became one of my favourite slot mechanics, the infinite reels! I now have two favourites NetEnt slot features. The Avalanche™ feature and the INFINIREELS™ feature. The release of the Gods of Gold™ slot marks the launch of the supplier’s ground-breaking infinite bet ways concept! And trust me when I tell you it’ll easily become your new favourite as well! Imagine you place a minimum bet of 0.20 with a chance to activate an (almost) endless series of reels! That’s what I call a good investment!
With each new reel, the number of bet ways multiplies with x3. Keep reading to find out how intense this slot mechanics can be for your winnings. The INFINIREELS™ feature is undoubtedly one of the best slot inventions in the past decade.
It all starts with 3×3 reels and 27 bet ways
Gods of Gold™ slot launch
The Gods of Gold™ slot is the game selected to introduce the innovative INFINIREELS™ feature. Therefore, it’s the first game to introduce infinite reels or infinite bet ways. There are different ways to describe the newest innovation, but NetEnt prefers to refer to the slot feature as INFINIREELS™.
You’ll get the change to go on a quest with an undead Pharaoh! How often do you get that chance? The Pharaoh got trapped in a treasure chamber in an ancient Babylonian temple. To live again and reclaim his fortune, he must collect all the god idols. Time to go on a quest for life and gold!
It’s pretty clear that the INFINIREELS™ feature is in the spotlights with infinite reels as a result. But to keep the reels coming, you need the help of two other slot features. Therefore, the Gods of Gold™ offers Wilds and Re-spins as well.
The more reels, the more bet ways activated and that’s exactly why the Multi-Slam feature is more than welcome. It’ll add 2 or 3 reels at the same time and a guaranteed win.
What are infinite reels?
A video slot usually consists of a fixed number of reels. This can be 3 reels (often classic slots), 5 reels (modern video slots) or sometimes even more. When a slot mechanics allow this number of reels to grow with no maximum of reels, you can call them infinite reels.
Thanks to NetEnt’s newest slot innovation known as INFINIREELS™, you now have a chance to enjoy infinite reels. Play the Gods of Gold INFINIREELS™ slot with a minimum bet of 0.20 and this small investment can have a dazzling win as a result.
Don’t think you’ll become rich with just a 0.20 bet, though. Because it all starts with just 3×3 reels and 27 bet ways. You can be a lucky one and activating an (almost) endless series of infinite reels, but it’s not as easy as we want it to be. Obviously, because if it was that easy, we would all be rich by now!
Big wins start to appear when you manage to get at least 10 or more reels. Before that, wins are attractive, but you won’t brag about them to your friends yet.
It also depends on the active symbol as the gems are less adventurous than the God symbols. If the gods of luck are with you and new infinite reels keep coming, that’s when you can start dreaming.
This is what infinite reels look like
How can I activate infinite reels?
As mentioned before, it all starts with 3×3 reels. This means you will always have a minimum of 27 bet ways to start with. This number can climb up easily as each reel multiplies the number of bet ways by x3.
So you start a spin with 27 bet ways, but one extra reel increases the number of ways to win to 81. That’s 27 times 3. Extra reels will be added as soon as each reel have matching symbols. Three of the same, or more, symbols activate 4 reels.
If this 4th reel brings the same symbol, there will be a 5th reel added with the number of bet ways to increase to 243.
The number of bet ways climbs up slowly but it’ll take a few reels more for an intense number of bet ways. Of course, I took my calculator for some interesting calculations. The result:
5 reels show 243 bet ways
10 reels activate 59.049 bet ways
15 reels bring an incredible 14.348.907 ways to win
And with 20 infinite reels, there are a dazzling 3.486.784.401 ways to win. That’s 3.4 billion win lines! You can imagine what your 0.20 bet will look like when you get to this point!
Other Gods of Gold™ slot features
I’m not going to lie to you! It’s not going to be easy to get to the 20 infinite reels, really! You must be made for luck if you get there within a few spins.
But, like everything in life, it’s not impossible! Always keep this in mind when you see your 10 infinite reels being broken up again. There will be that moment that you break through the barrier, with or without the help of Wilds, Re-spins and Multi-Slams.
Because of all of these extra Golds of Gold™ slot features, infinite reels are a “reel thing”! At one point, you might again see your long chain of infinite reels broken up again, but that’s when these slot features can save the day!
Gods of Gold INFINIREELS slot Re-spins feature
When does the Wild feature save the day?
If no corresponding symbols are triggered and you see your infinite reels chain being smashed because of it, the Wild might come to the rescue.
The Wild symbol can substitute for any of the symbols, except Scatters. If you see your chain broken, it will substitute for the active symbol. This will result in your infinite reels to keep going with another reel being added.
When does a Re-spin save the day?
The Wild is the best thing to happen in case of a no-win situation and will for sure keep your infinite reels running. However, a Re-spin is no promise for a win.
A Re-spin can turn your reel again and award a matching symbol after all. But it can also end up being a disappointing spin again. If so, your infinite reels collected with so much sweat and tears will be gone and forgotten already. Not before your winnings from them have been paid out, of course!
If a Re-spin does save the day, the INFINIREELS feature does not come to an end and adds another reel to the game.
During a win, the Multi-slam feature can add 2-3 reels at a time. That’s when all of a sudden, the game become even more interesting. The number of bet ways will climb up drastically with a Multi-Slam as well. Besides, a Multi-slam always guarantees a win.
Three or more Scatter Star symbols activate 10 Win Spins. During the Free Spins feature, Pharaoh’s ghost will grant you a guaranteed win for each Spin. Meanwhile, during the main game and during the Free Spins feature, you’ll have a Wild and Re-spins at your disposal.
Infinite reels Minimap
How do you keep track of the infinite reels?
There are the infinite reels and there’s your screen! Your screen obviously doesn’t grow along with the infinite reels! Neither do we have infinite screens.
If you have a photographic memory, you’re sorted! No infinite screen needed or no Minimap. Because that’s how you can follow the infinite reels from the first spin.
The counter at the right bottom of the screen is showing you the active symbols collected and the number of reels that passed so far!
In the above image, you see the Minimap showing the active green rubies. The Minimap also registers the Wilds and Scatters.
