Gargoyle Infinity Reels Slot (Yggdrasil)
Gargoyle: Infinity Reels is part of Yggdrasil Gaming's YGS Masters programme; however, it was created by Boomerang Studios. The slot uses the popular Infinity Reels engine, which we've seen in other slots before.
I love the Gothic-style idea that Yggdrasil has gone with, and the obvious gargoyles that come in all shapes, colours, and sizes.
Join me as I take you through my journey playing this slot for real money:
My first stop was on the reels, and this is how I discovered that Yggdrasil has gone with a 3 reels-design, with up to 1000000 paylines/ways.
Features include Free spins bonus, Wilds, Expanding Reels, and Infinity Reels among others.
Betting and Prizes
Gargoyle: Infinity Reels is not the type of slot that allows for large bets despite its remarkable potential. It will go from $0.25 to $10 (up to $0.40 coins) if you use 25 coins.
With those Infinity Reels, multipliers, and even a Jackpot Wheel, a single play in Gargoyle could deliver wins of up to 21,300x the stake. As you can see, the game will deliver significant wins on several occasions, but I also noticed that these wins are far in between.
The game is high in volatility, and I’m a little disappointed that a big brand like Yggdrasil can give it a below average RTP of 95.76%.
Gargoyle Infinity Reels Features
Infinity Reels is a system that starts with 3x3 reels and expands to the right if you build a winning combination using the available ways to win. New reels are added, and this will continue as long as new symbols for those combos appear.
In such a scenario, the reels stop being added, and you are eventually compensated for each symbol involved. Combinations produced on those reels may include 3 to 6 symbols.
The Gargoyle Wild is one of the most prominent symbols on those reels. As usual, it is the feature that you use to substitute the regular icons.
Even though this title is pretty unique, there are a number of typical feature symbols and the scatter is one of them. Landing 3+ of these gave me a cool 10 free spins.
With the free spins in motion, the Gargoyle Wild will acquire a new role. If these wilds emerge, the reels will gain up to three extra spots, increasing the game area and the number of ways to win.
If a wild land on a reel that is already at its maximum size, you will gain access to the Jackpot Wheel, which will spin to award a prize of up to 888x your wager.
Theme and Design
The slot borrows it theme from the Gothic world, and the developer has gone with cartoon-style gargoyles symbols.
These include the Alpha Gargoyle (devil-like, with gigantic horns), an Emerald scatter, gargoyles (four of them in various colours- red, blue, green, and pink), plus four card suits that are in the form of jewels.
Overall, Gargoyle: Infinity Reels is a great slot, especially for this series. I love its potential, and great design, but a little disappointed with the low RTP that doesn’t blend well with the high volatility.
