Barely a month goes by without another Nolimit City game destroying its win cap, it seems. This time it is the superhero filled Infectious 5 xWays to the rescue. Hot on the heels of the hip hop sensation East Coast vs West Coast, Infectious 5 xWays saw the team build on the Infectious xWays mechanic used on the mean streets, pushing to ways not previously seen. If ever a bonus round exemplified exactly what the explosive feature is capable of, this is the one.
Infectious 5 xWays is played on 5-reel, 1,024 ways game grid, building to a staggering 110,592 possible ways to win when Infectious xWays symbols are fully popping. Nowhere is this more apparent than in free spins, triggered when 3 to 5 scatters symbols land. The more scatters used to activate the bonus, the more potent the round can potentially be. However, as this clip shows, less than 5 scatters are enough to hit the win cap. Here, 4 scatters appear, presenting 2 options – 10 ‘tamer’ Toxic Hazard spins or 8 radioactive Lock ‘n Load spins. The intrepid player in question selects the more volatile option to benefit from locking wilds, wild multipliers and the Infectious xWays feature.
Things get off to a positive beginning when a wild lands then locks on the first spin, and another scatter appears on the second, elevating the bonus round to Mayhem free spins. Handy this upgrade too, because it means whenever Infectious xWays symbols hit, they only ever display the Golden Mayhem Symbol, which has the same value as the most lucrative premium.
We get a taste of things to come on the next couple of spins when extra wilds land and lock, alongside several Golden symbols. However, it’s when the Infectious xWay tiles start appearing that the game really starts to perform. Just one is needed on the 5th spin to infect all other Golden Symbols, doubling them on the reels to power out an impressive 5,286x the bet payout.
Another highlight occurs on the 8th spin, but it’s the second to last one that pushes the bonus over the edge. By then, 7 wilds are locked to the grid, almost guaranteeing something special will happen every time the play button is clicked. Combining locked wilds with x3 Infectious xWays symbols from one side of the grid to the other, creates a hit worth a barely comprehensible 29,122 times the stake. One more spin is all it takes to trigger the End of Days celebration, meaning the game has tapped its 55,555x win cap.
There’s nothing left to do except mark up another stunning result from the Nolimit City stable of slots. While this clip might make it look easy – land a few wilds, lock ’em to the reels, and then pile on a few xWays symbols, Infectious 5 is anything but. The game is one of Nolimit City’s ‘extremely volatile’ slots, after all. However, on its day, Infectious 5 xWays can pile it on with the best of them in a way that blurs the lines between gambling and straight-up entertainment.
