Money Mariachi Pours Forth Coins in a Popped Piñata of a Record Win

In the battle to design new game mechanics, one studio displaying admirable determination is Aussie outfit ReelPlay. Their Infinity Reels concept might not (at the moment at least) match systems like Megaways in terms of market saturation or dependable playability, but it’s not for lack of trying. ReelPlay themselves have released numerous slots powered by Infinity Reels, as have several other studios under licence.

So far, the quality has been a little, let’s say, unpredictable, but one Infinity Reels slot that impressed us was Money Mariachi Infinity Reels. There is no shortage of either Infinity Reels slots or games dressed up in the colourful Day of the Dead theme, but by some pleasant twist of fate, ReelPlay was able to squeeze maximum enjoyment out of both elements to create an outstanding release.

One of Money Mariachi’s eyecatchers is its huge max win figure which easily eclipses just about every other Infinity Reels slot. It’s got the Infinity Bonus of x888 the bet, should at least 12 reels be added during a single spin, and a bonus round that feels nigh unstoppable when it gets a major roll on.

In a nutshell, when a win hits during an Infinity Reels slot that uses the rightmost reel, another reel is added to the right-hand side. If the new reel increases the win further, another reel is added, and so on. If you are lucky to land at least 3 Shrine scatter symbols throughout a game round, then the Level Up Respins feature is triggered.

What happens next is the triggering scatters are held in place while three respins are awarded. Should a new symbol land during the feature, the number of remaining respins are reset back to three. Shrine symbols possess bet multiplier values, and they can level up by collecting small skull overlay symbols.

A skull is added to symbols on each respin, and when enough have been collected, values increase, plus there is a chance Shrines change into one of four special symbols. Like other hold’ n win style games, special symbols can be instrumental in carving out greater rewards. Money Train 2 is a classic example of the power of special symbols. However, Money Mariachi is a very different experience. This isn’t really a game that goes from meh to magnificent in less than 12 parsecs, the way a Collector/Payer symbol can seem to do in Money Train 2. This is a turtle beating the hare type event, which can sure take its sweet time to get where it’s going.

As they say, good things take time, and the wait is worth it for the lucky player in this clip. After a slow and steady, consistently upwards bound 12 minute journey, Money Mariachi pops its virtual piñata, showering the player in coins to the tune of €8111.60, or 20,279 times the reference bet. When you consider this is less than half of what is theoretically possible in Money Mariachi Infinity Reels, this is one game that really delivers bang for buck value (under the right circumstances).
