Tiger Kingdom Infinity Reels
- Base game with possible extra rows and multipliers
- Respins with persistent special symbols
- Potential wins of up to 20,000x your stake
- Bonus game can be more testing than thrilling
New from Relax Gaming, Tiger Kingdom is the second slot with the Infinity Reels mechanic in the developer’s collection after the Emerald’s game with the same engine. This time the studio went for an Asian theme and, instead of free spins, used respins as seen in the Money Train 2 bonus round, resulting in an entertaining title visually and mechanically. The backdrop and the soundtrack take you to a peaceful temple where wise big cats appear as premium symbols on a 3×3 reel setting. But with so many extra elements further down the bonus round, expect some roaring gameplay too. Carry on reading, and we’ll reveal all the details in our slot review below.

Out of all the bonus features, the Infinity Reels is the true highlight in Tiger Kingdom. Having said that, don’t overlook the persistent special symbols during the Hold and Win style bonus round – they can add extra coin values, collect and multiply them for some epic wins. Where permitted, players can also use the bonus buy feature, giving them instant access to the main bonus round.
The tiger paw scatters don’t pay anything, but they’ll activate the bonus round if you can catch 3 or more of the same symbols on the same spin during the base game.
In Tiger Kingdom, the Infinity Reels mechanic kicks in when you line 3 matching symbols across all 3 reels on the same spin. The entire grid then moves to the left and collects the winning symbols from the left reel while the rightmost reel re-spins. If another winning symbol lands on the rightmost reel, the process will repeat until no more matching symbols appear on the last reel. Also, look out for lotus multipliers and handscrolls appearing on the reels during respins. The multipliers can double, triple or quadruple the symbol values collected until that point. The handscrolls, also known as Extra Row symbols, can add extra rows, up to a max of 2, to the grid when collected.
When triggered with 3 or more scatters, the bonus round begins with 3 respins and all regular symbols removed from the grid. Similar to the Hold & Win mechanic, only “x” spaces, coin symbols and special modifiers appear on the grid during this round. The Infinity Reels kick in when you land 3 symbols across all 3 reels, just like in the base game, except that now they don’t have to match. As long as you keep landing coins and special symbols, the reels will keep shifting to the left, adding up the symbol values from reel 1 and resetting your spin counter back to 3. The blank spaces don’t count. But the best thing is the special symbols and especially their persistent versions that can show up during the bonus round:
- Gold coins – reveal a value between 1x and 10x your bet.
- Red coins – reveal a value between 20x and 100x your bet.
- Yin and Yang – increase the re-spin counter reset value by 1.
- Handscrolls – add an extra row, up to a max of 2, to the grid.
- Collector – collects all coin values in view.
- Payer – adds its value to new positions on the reels.
- Sniper – doubles, triples or quadruples up to 3 positions with values on the reels.
The Collector, Payer and Sniper symbols turn into their sticky versions immediately after landing and keep behaving in their usual manner until they disappear from the reels.
The Infinity Reels version of Tiger Kingdom doesn’t have a jackpot feature. Instead, it comes equipped with a royal max potential of up to 20,000x your stake.
Tiger Kingdom isn’t just for playing on a desktop. The game’s mobile version is fully compatible with all current Android and iOS devices, including phones and tablets, so that you can enjoy it on the go.
