High 5 Games has brought a ‘land-based hit’ online with the launch of a new Infinity Respins mechanic in its latest title, Shadow of the Panther Infinity.
Shadow of the Panther Infinity is a 3×3 reel slot in which five or more adjacent identical symbols form wins, with a maximum win of x2,810 the player’s bet available.
96 per cent
Low value symbols are represented by green, pink and blue gemstones. If the right number of identical symbols land adjacent to one another, these symbols can offer between x0.2 and x40 the player’s wager.
Meanwhile, green and blue panthers depict the medium value symbols, offering between x0.4 and x70 the player’s wager.
For the high value symbols, a jungle warrior can appear. These symbols can offer between x2 and x300 the player’s stake, depending on the number of winning combinations that land on a single spin.
Golden bonus text scatters are available, triggering five free spins if three land on the same spin, or in the same set of respins. Each additional scatter beyond the three will award one extra free spin each.
Finally, wild text symbols can drop into play in the middle cell or the four corner cells of the base game grid. These symbols will substitute for all symbols in the game other than the bonus scatters.
With the Infinity Respins mechanic, each winning cluster that appears will cause a free respin to occur, in which the reels zoom out to reveal another reel set where the initial grid appears as the middle cell.
In these free respins, players will hope to land identical symbols to the ones that formed the initial win, the active symbol.
Landing active symbols adjacent to the winning positions in the initial grid will cause another free respin to occur, allowing for an infinite number of respins.
As the respins continue, a ticker above the grid will tell the player how many identical symbols have contributed to the respins while displaying the amount of prizes that have been won.
If the initial win increases in size and a new win, of at least five-of-a-kind, is also formed with another symbol, then the larger combination win will become, or remain, the active symbol, causing the smaller combination win to pay out immediately.
In the case that there is a tie in the combination size of both wins, then the higher value win becomes or remains the active symbol.
During the free spins game mode, the reels will have a size of 4×4, with the four middle cells being taken up by one giant wild symbol.
The Infinity Respins mechanic will continue to enhance the free spins game mode, with adjacent wins being easier to form on the larger grid.
Throughout both the base game and the free spins feature, landing 15 respins in one spin will award the minor jackpot prize of x20 the player’s stake.
Moreover, landing 25 consecutive respins will award the major jackpot prize of x100 or the grand jackpot of x2,000.
