Meanwhile, Yggdrasil’s latest collaboration with Sydney-headquartered YG Masters’ partner ReelPlay has seen the launch of “the world first combination” of Megaways and Infinity Reels via Odin Infinity Reels Megaways. The new video slot follows April releases, Thor Infinity Reels and Royal Dragon Infinity Reels.
“Odin is the first slot in the world to offer Megaways™ to infinity!”
In addition to both of the extremely popular online slot mechanics, the third slot in the Australian developer’s Infinity Reels Series franchise features a Norse magic vibe, extra spins, and wins up to x20,000 the triggering bet!
Set in the mountainous and mythical world of Odin, the King of Asgard, the high volatility slot kicks off with three reels, each with a different number of symbols. With every winning combination landed, the reels expand and the win multiplier increases thanks to the Infinity Reels mechanic. Players who are lucky enough to reach the 15th reel or past it can win a jackpot of 888 times their bet, in addition to any other wins that accumulate in the process.
Triggering the bonus game happens when players land six Gungnir (Odin’s spear) Scatter symbols across any number of in-play reels. Then, the game transforms into a dual wheel selector during which players will find out the number of extra spins they receive and the specific multiplier in play. The latter increases with each additional reel added during the bonus game, giving players the chance to earn massive wins.
