Martian Miner Infinity Reels Review
Martian Miner is a truly unique vertical mining slot with Infinity Reels that has been released by ReelPlay in partnership with BB Games, as part of the YG Masters programme. Try not to be intimidated by this somewhat strange slot, it's very different to anything you might well have come across before, but it's a lot of fun to play thanks to its unique gameplay, mechanics and the Teleport Reel Modifier and Free Spins features.
Martian Miner Infinity Reels is a truly bizarre slot, not only is it an infinity reels game, but it's an infinity reels game that is played vertically! The reels are set upon a deep space drill, that's digging into the core of the red planet, Mars.
There are quite a few symbols that can appear on these reels, they are as follows (from highest value to lowest): 10, J, Q, K, A, iron ore, bronze ore, silver ore, gold ore, platinum ore, emerald, ruby, sapphire, diamond and marsonite.
Special symbols include an Astronaut wild symbol that appears on reel 2 and onwards and a Free Spin Fuel which adds +1 free spins to the total number of free spins players can trigger upon landing 10 consecutive infinity reels.
In terms of sound, players are treated to a slow atmospheric sci-fi score. Whenever the reels are spinning you can hear the sound of the drill working its way into the ground, it's nothing overly exciting until you start really digging deep, but it does the job.
The one thing we do have to point out about Martian Miner Infinity Reels is the fact that the entire game is cramped into the middle of the screen. Yes, this allows for a beautiful landscape view of the red planet behind it, but it does feel slightly off.
This unique space-themed slot is played on a 3x4 set of reels that spins from left-to-right rather than top-to-bottom. Every time players land at least 5 matching symbols on the reels from the top-down, then the game reels will grow vertically by a single reel every time a winning combination is formed. If you're struggling to visualise it imagine an ordinary Infinity Reels slot, but turned on its side.
Symbols pay from top to bottom where the participating symbol count is greater or equal to 5. Players can only add a total of 76 reels (which is a LOT, but it does kind of defeat the entire purpose of 'infinity' reels if you ask us). Wins are calculated when no more extra reels can be added to the game.
This medium/high volatility slot has an RTP of 96.06% and a maximum win potential of 5,536x the player's stake. If anything we'd say that this slot is as average as they come in this department, but if you're looking for a straightforward middle of the road game then we'd still highly recommend giving this a go.
Martian Miner Infinity Reels is certainly different to anything we've ever played before... Personally, we really enjoyed this game once we had gotten used to the core gameplay. In terms of pros, this unusual game really drew is in with excellent bonus features and quirky mechanics... In terms of cons, it's not at all one for purists and the win potential could be higher for such a landmark slot.
