Dragons Fire Infinireels slot review
Given Red Tiger’s success with the original Dragon's Fire, as well as the Megaways follow-up title, it’s only natural that they now present us with the InfiniReels version. NetEnt hasn’t done much with their trademarked engine since Gods of Gold Infinireels, but their partner studio certainly picked the right game for an infinity-makeover.
Dragon's Fire InfiniReels sticks out because wins are calculated anew on each added reel. This certainly feels like a step in the right direction, and we also like that the grid never resets in the bonus round. Visually, fans of the fantasy series will hardly be disappointed, and the potential is even a bit higher than in the Megaways version. The max bet of £10 is a bit low perhaps, and you also get the typical lower-than-average RTP (as well as customizable RTP ranges) that Red Tiger keeps insisting on.
Dragon's Fire InfiniReels Reel Screen
Dragon's Fire InfiniReels Features
The present reels are locked whenever you land a winning combo, and a new reel is then piled on from the right-hand side. If you improve your winning combo with the new reel, the process continues. If you don’t improve your winning combo, the grid resets to 3x3 again.
You can land Fire Eggs at random times, and these will boost your winnings with a random multiplier. You can land only 1 Fire Egg per spin however, and landing new eggs means that the multiplier values are added together for a bigger boost. The multiplier is removed when the grid resets.
The Fire Wild feature also triggers at random times, and you’ll then see 1 or 2 reels catch fire in the middle of a spin. Wilds will then appear on the lit up reels, and a fire wild might also trigger on any new reels that are added.
When you land 3 Dragon Spins scatters you trigger the Dragon Spin bonus round. A regular symbol will be randomly selected up front, and you get 8 free spins. You will only land the chosen symbol, Fire Eggs, Fire Wilds, +2 Spin symbols and blanks during the feature. The +2 Spins symbol adds 2 extra free spins to your tally, and the grid does not reset during free spins.
The 200 Spins Dragon's Fire InfiniReels Experience
We had a few fire wild wins in the base game, but nothing too exciting happened before we finally triggered the bonus round. This happens around 1:35 into the 3-minute highlights video you can check out below. Our chosen symbol was the low-value red egg, and you can see how it all went by hitting the play button.
Red Tiger has done a lot of things right with Dragon's Fire InfiniReels, and it immediately stands out as one of the better games with this mechanic. The whole Infinite Reels thing hasn’t really taken off as you might expect it to, and it’s probably due to the unsatisfying feeling of building up something, only to see it collapse again and again.
There is no way to escape this really, but you come close in the bonus round since the grid doesn't reset on non-winning spins. The random wild and multiplier features are helpful, and it’s fun to focus only on your chosen symbol during Dragon Spins. Fans of the Infinity Reels engine will probably gobble this one up, and it might even convert some fence-sitters.
