Highly Anticipated Slot ‘San Quentin xWays’ by Nolimit City Goes Live

After a stellar 2020, the Malta-based slot provider Nolimit City is starting the new year in grand style. The studio is taking players to the San Quentin prison, the oldest and most famous correctional facility in California. Given the unusual theme, it comes as no surprise these are action-packed reels with many seedy characters.   

Once you enter this prison, you will be coming face to face with wild and vicious inmates Heinrich 3rd, Crazy Joe Labrador and Beefy Dick. They are the ones that will make your stay in this facility memorable.

The game is played on a 5×3 grid that can expand up to 5×5. Once you start spinning the reels, you will have at your disposal 243 ways to win as a default but thanks to multiple features. you can increase this up to a whopping 13,189,257,216. Aside from the controversial theme, players will be attracted by the enormous win potential of 150,000x total bet. 

As stated by Per Lindheimer, Product Owner at Nolimit City, said: 

“We always try to push the limits and find new ways of building new mechanics and portrait our slots – San Quentin xWays is no exception to this. You might see similarities with the smash hit Punk Rocker – gritty, mean and explosive. Welcome to San Quentin – make sure to choose your friends with care.”

Numerous Thrilling Special Features 

Aside from a highly entertaining base game, players will get to enjoy numerous special features. By landing 1 or 2 bonus symbols, Cell Enhancer gets triggered and 1 out of the top 5 paying symbols will be revealed, including Razor Spit one. This symbol increases the number of ways to win by splitting the icons on regular positions.    

In the base game, a similar thing happens when Spit Wild lands. However, differently from the first one, this feature splits symbols on the same reel and can create up to 46,656 ways to win 

When the Lockdown Spins feature begins, the numbers of free spins and special symbols multiplier will be decided randomly. Jumping Wild, represented by a Police Badge, goes from one random position to the next with each spin. If it appears on the same reel as the Razor Split symbol, the multiplier will double.
