Overview Odin Infinity Reels Megaways
Odin Infinity Reels from the developers at ReelPlay’s is the third slot in the Infinity Reels Series franchise. This slot follows on from the others and invites you into the mythical world of the King of Asgard, Odin, and although you might be wondering whether this slot is different from the others it does differ thanks to ReelPlay deciding to combine the famous Megaways mechanic with their in house developed Infinity Reels.
Although there was a period where there was a feud between NetEnt and ReelPlay over who invented the Infinity/InfiniReels but fortunately this was sorted out amicably which is a plus for players that are on the harder edge of the spectrum. The theme is one that is used very often and the mythology themed slots, seen to have cartoon styled graphics where all characters have a silly grin or you go down the same route as ReelPlay and there is definitely no grinning as this is a serious slot with a math model to match.
Game Play & Bet Range
The first thing you need to be aware of with this slot is that it has one of the highest volatility ratings and for this reason it falls in a totally different category to previous Infinity Reel slots. The potential has also been upsized too, which we will look at a bit later. The return to player is slightly lower than the other two in these series but decent enough as it comes out at 96.18%.
From this it is obvious that the developer has turn up their math model which gives a boost to almost all the other aspects of the game. Part of the change is due to the Megaways engine being in use. Whilst you may be used to seeing big numbers in Megaways slots such as 117,649 ways to win, theoretically Odin Infinity Reels makes this look like nothing! This is because technically there is no limited to the number of reels that can be added plus no limit of how on many Megaways can join in the play. This is summed up by the developers as ‘Odin is the first slot in the world to offer Megaways to infinity.’
This may be a great but of advertising but let’s look at how that works. Landing wins are the same as in land three matching symbols next to each other to land a win and with this slot there is an average of wins landing on every 3.5 spins. The game starts with three reels and therefore you must land a win symbol in each of the reels. When you land a winning combination the Infinity Reels come into play and a new reel is then added to hopefully give you the chance to land even more winning symbols. This mechanic continues until there are no new wins. There is also a multiplier that starts at x1 and increasing by 1 for every reel that is added.
Bets and Symbols
Odin Infinity Reels Megaways can be played on all devices and offers a bet range of the minimum of 30p per spin up to the maximum of £12 per spin and this is the best-looking game ReelPlay have released. The slot is set in a dreamy mountain valley that could easily have come from an oil painting and the designers have covered every area perfectly and overall, this is a stunning slot.
The symbols have also been created with no attention to detail being missed and you will find that there are 10 regular symbols that show in the pay table and these are 6 rune stones, wolves, ravens and an 8 legged horse. Unsurprisingly, Odin is the most valuable symbol and when you land three on a pay line you will be rewarded with 8x the coin value. The wild is depicted by the Valknut symbol and can substitute for all symbols apart from the scatter.
Alongside the Infinity Reels which drive the action there is a Jackpot and free spins on offer. You can win a jackpot of 888x your bet and this is on top of any other wins you have accrued and when a spins results in 12 or more reels being added and although this does sound simple, statistically this will only occur in 63,323 spins, so don’t hold your breath!
You need to watch out for Gungnir who is Odin’s spear, as any wins that are created using this symbol will activate the free spins, however before the free spins (which have a frequency of 1 in 315 spins) you will be presented with 2 wheels. The first wheel awards 8, 10, or 12 free spins, whilst the second wheel selects the win multiplier increment level. In the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th levels the win multiplier increases by 1, 2, 3 or 4 respectively every time a new reel is added.
The other great thing on offer in this feature is that you can benefit from the win multiplier not resetting between spins and therefore this can grow high if you are lucky enough to play with an incremental 4x win multiplier is in place. Better still you can extend the feature when any Gungnir symbol win happens as you are also rewarded with an additional 4 spins.
Odin Infinity Reels Megaways does make some great promises and I am pleased to report that it does deliver on most points. It is far more refined than the others in this series and the graphics have been much improved and the reel spinning is far more animated. The reels can expand forever with 4 symbols on each and in this slot, you can land different symbols on each reel, however the difference is not pronounced as much as it is in a Megaways reboot. The two mechanics work well with each other, but Odin’s gameplay is not that original, and you may have seen a lot of it before.
There are changes beneath the surface which are significant to the slot and Odin Infinity is far more volatile than the other two and if you factor in the 12 reel jackpot and maximum wind on offer top out at 20,000x your stake. There are plenty of rewards on offer, but you may find that you must wait a while for these.
In conclusion, this does feel like the Infinity Reels franchise is evolving and Odin is an improvement visually, the theme is well done, and the potential being offered is huge. This game can be rather repetitive and even brutal at times and would be most suited to either patient players or harder-edged gamblers.
