Nolimit City is a software provider that has, and continues, to push the boundaries when it comes to online slots. This is evident in their long list of successful slots that they have released, which has fans wanting more. Adding to the ever growing list of stellar online slots is San Quentin xWays, which is the subject of this review. Keep reading to find out more about this unique slot by Nolimit City!
In terms of design San Quentin xWays is a gritty no holds-bar slot that features a gangster theme, reminiscent of Grand Theft Auto San Andreas. For those who don't know, San Quentin is the name of one of the most notorious high security prisons in the United States that is packed with the unfriendliest of characters known to man. You will find high concrete walls, barbed wire fencing, surveillance equipment and prison guards.
Bets are placed from as low as 20 cents up to a maximum of 32 dollars per spin, with a maximum win at 150,000x per spin. This is considered a high volatility slot, rated a 10 out of 10 in the scoring system. The RTP percentage is variable depending on where you play, however players can expect it to sit between 94.11% to as high as 96.03%.
The symbols that feature on San Quentin xWays are all cleverly designed to fit in the prison theme. Your low paying symbols include a bar of soap, a lighter, prison weapons, handcuffs and toilet paper. These low paying symbols are accompanied by the slots high paying symbols. These include 5 inmates by the name of Beefy Dick, Loco Luis, Biker Bill, Heinrich the 3rd and Crazy Joe. Besides being super intimidating, these 5 inmates will award between 2.5-5x your stake for landing five matching symbols on the reels.
The bonus symbol is the Wild symbol. There are in fact 2 wild symbols, including the substitute wild symbol and the Split wild symbol. The Split Wild symbol applies to symbols above and below, splitting them to increase their payout.
The scatter symbol is the Tower and will award free spins to players by landing 3 or more during the base game.
In true Nolimit City fashion, San Quentin xWays has a ton of bonus features to keep gameplay unpredictable and exciting.
During the base game the bottom and top of each reel is Enhance Cell Positions, which are locked in place. The position is activated at random and will reveal either a xWay symbol, Razor Split Symbol, Wild or a premium high paying symbol. Razor Split bonus symbols will double the value of all the symbols on that reel, while the xWay symbol will reveal a stacked regular paying symbol that covers 4 positions on the reels.
First up we have the Lockdown free spins feature, which is activated by landing between 3 and 5 scatter symbols. During free spins players will be awarded Jumping Wilds for the duration of the free spin round. Jumping Wilds not only replace regular paying symbols but they also ‘jump’ into random positions during free spins. On top of this they have a multiplier attached which makes their payout even higher. With the Enhancer Cell Positions active during free pins there are huge winning opportunities for players.
As is the case with many other Nolimit City slots, players have the opportunity to buy the bonus. This will cost between 100x - 2000x your stake depending on how many jumping wilds you want to be present. This speaks to how much value is placed on the bonus round by the software provider.
San Quentin xWays is another great addition to Nolimit City’s online slot catalogue. The design is perfectly executed, with no corners being cut where quality is concerned. In terms of gameplay San Quentin xWays is a fun experience that we are sure players will love, as bonus features are present in the base game as well as during free spins. The most lucrative portion of the slot is undoubtedly the Free Spin bonus round, which players should focus on triggering if they want to walk away with big wins.
