Royal Dragon Infinity Reels slot REVIEW
Royal Dragon Infinity Reels ReviewThe independent Down-Under developer, GamesLab, has released Royal Dragon Infinity Reels on Yggdrasil’s Masters Program. It’s the first asian-themed game featuring the licenced and trademarked infinity reels mechanic from ReelPlay. Experienced westerners will hardly find anything new to see here though, except for the occasional Frenzy Spin multiplier boost.
The 5-tier Multiplier Increment Bonus Round is a carbon copy of what’s on offer in Giza Infinity Reels, and the whole thing comes across as a recycled, watered-down effort aimed primarily for the asian market. The stats will not impress any experienced western players, as literally all other Infinity slots out there offer far better conditions.

Royal Dragon Infinity Reels Features
The golden dragon is the wild symbol, and it will step in for all regular pay symbols like wilds usually do. Each winning combo adds a new reel, and this also increases the progressive win multiplier by +1. There is no upper limit as to how high the multiplier can climb, and it will boost your total win at the end of a sequence.
Frenzy Spins can be triggered at random times, and this gives you a random multiplier of 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x. This multiplier will be combined with any regular win multiplier you’ve racked up, and it can lead to some decent base game payouts out of the blue.
There is also a 200x jackpot you can land if you manage to add at least 12 extra reels in the same sequence. The random frenzy spin multiplier will be applied to this 200x jackpot, but not the regular win multiplier. This means that the highest possible jackpot is worth 1,000x your stake.
You need to land at least 5 Gong scatters to trigger the bonus round, and you get 7 free spins plus 1 extra spin per Gong scatter above the required minimum of 5. You will also get 2 extra free spins per Gong scatter you land during the bonus round.
The progressive win multiplier does not reset on losing free spins, and each consecutive win increases the win multiplier increment with +1 up to 5. Losing spins take you down one notch in the Multiplier Increment meter, and racking up massive multipliers is certainly possible via this feature.
As the bonus round concludes, you will get the option to gamble your winnings. It’s possible to boost your total win with up to 5x in this feature, but you also stand to lose half your winnings if you’re unlucky. Non-UK players can purchase the bonus round for 66.67x your stake. This gives you 9 free spins with a progressive multiplier that starts anywhere between 1x and 5x. The RTP also increases from 95.85 % to 96.54 %.
The 200 Spins Royal Dragon Infinity Reels Experience
After some smaller initial base game wins, we decided to go for the Bonus Buy option. We landed on the 1x multiplier unfortunately, and you can see this at 0:36 into the 3-minute highlights video below. We managed to rack up a solid 49x multiplier in the end though, but how much we got away with you’ll have to see for yourself by hitting the play button.
We get that Royal Dragon Infinity Reels is aimed primarily at the asian market, but we’re still gonna judge it via the lense of our experienced western mindset. Yggdrasil partner, GamesLab, brings nothing new to the table here, as both the engine and the core features are lifted directly from ReelPlay’s Giza Infinity Reels. The Frenzy Spins adds a bit of excitement to the base game though, but it’s hardly enough to save this one from the memory hole.
The biggest drawback is the watered down math model and the pretty generic and boring oriental theme. The max win is only 2,652x your stake, but you can gamble it all the way up to around 10,000x with maximum luck. Players familiar with the Infinity engine will hardly be impressed, and there are plenty of better alternatives out there (at least in the west).
If you enjoy Royal Dragon Infinity Reels you should also try:
Giza Infinity Reels - is a far better alternative if you like the game at hand. It comes with the same multiplier increment upgrade bonus round, but here you can win up to 10,000x your stake. The RTP is also significantly higher in this game, and the volatility is a tad less brutal.
Dragons Fire Infinireels - is a much better alternative for dragon lovers, and it’s Red Tiger’s infinity mechanic debut. You get a new win calculation on each added reel here, and the bonus round comes with a sole randomly chosen win symbol for payouts hovering above 10,000x your stake.
Thor Infinity Reels - is a norse mythology themed title from ReelPlay, and it comes with a progressive win multiplier and a 888x jackpot when you add 12+ reels. The Hold & Respins bonus round offers jackpots up to 2,000x your stake, as well as an overall 6,055x potential.
