About Tiki Infinity Reel Slot
Tiki Infinity Reels arrived in UK slot sites in November 2020, perhaps in an attempt to bring some much-needed sunshine and cheer to the tail end of 2020. And to some extent, that has been achieved. This is the follow up to the epic warrior game, Odin Infinity Reels, and those who enjoyed that journey into high variance mayhem will enjoy this too, though as we mentioned in our introduction, this is not the vertiginous ride that its predecessor was. Instead, things are more middle of the road, with the odd curveball big, big win thrown in for good measure.
The action starts on three reels, but after any win, if the right-most reel contributes to a greater payout, another reel is added. This process repeats ad infinitum. And of course, it’s all playing out on the Megaways™ engine too – so that’s a randomised number of rows per reel, up to 5 max.
Play starts at 30p per spin.
RTP, Variance and Top Payout
So, we make the variance here a medium-high. Don’t expect the full-on battering that some high volatility games can give. This one has a reasonable distribution of pays but is still tougher than most low stakes casual players will like. The RTP is an average 96.07% and the top payout is advertised as 96.07%. The max payout of 10,000x is extremely unlikey. Expect most big wins to be in the high 100x’s or 1,000x to 2,000x.
Symbols and Paytable
No question this is a slot that is making us crave some sandy Pacific beach time, with the sounds of indigenous music floating past as you spin the reels. The reels are surrounded by palm trees with coconuts hanging from the branches, whilst a turquoise ocean appears in the background – bliss!
The low value playing cards are made from painted wood, with bright colours. Six playing cards deliver from 1x to 3x bet. Meanwhile, four different masks that display different emotions act as the premium icons. The blue and green masks both pay 4x for three in combination, while three red or three violet masks will get you 5x stake.
Look out as well for the Gold Tiki which is the game’s Wild that will substitute for all regular symbols to form wins. Finally, there is the Volcano icon which is the Scatter that is needed to trigger the Free Spins feature.
Gameplay and Features
A total of three additional features are on offer in Tiki Infinity Reels. The neat combination of two extremely popular game engines and the unlimited win multiplier are set up to deliver some electric gameplay, whilst there is also a tasty 888x jackpot that hits if you can trigger 12 or more reels from one original spin!
Let’s see how all that works.
Symbol Multiplier Feature
Every time a win occurs, one additional reel is added to the grid, and the number of ways to win increases as a consequence. A win multiplier, which starts at 1x, goes up by 1x with each successive win, with no limit to how high the multiplier can reach. In the base game, the win multiplier will reset after each non-winning spin, but things are different in the free spins round, as all good Megways™ fans know!
Adding 12 extra reels to the set from one spin is no mean feet. That’s TWELVE consecutive wins. If you do it, the reward is a big 888x jackpot pay out. So keep your fingers crossed as the reels grow to 10, 11 … then …
Free Spins Feature
Where a volcano scatter land on the reels during a winning spin, then the Free Spins feature will be triggered.
Ten free spins are awarded. The win multiplier then starts from the point of the triggering spin, and continues to grow by 1x with each consecutive win. At the same time, the reels increase by 1 with each win. The difference here is that the multiplier does not reset. In fact, it is also unlimited, as is the number of free spins you can trigger.
Every two new reels added to the reel grid will deliver 1 extra free spin and any wins with volcano scatters also earn you 4 additional free spins.
Tiki Infinity Reels is a fun little slot that mixes two dynamite game features and delivers some relentlessly entertaining play.
For fans of the first Infinity Reels game, whilst there are plenty of similarities between the original Odin and the new Tiki, in fact the two games have striking differences – namely, the RTP, the maximum payout, variance, and Free Spins mechanics. Generally speaking this one is easier on the wallet and perhaps more of an entry point for casual players. We recommend it to most slots fans and it’s certainly a great way to find out more about ReelPlay, a developer who we will be watching closely in 2021 as they are an exciting prospect.
