Slot developers are always looking for interesting themes for their games. NoLimit City hit one out of the park with their latest release slot release titled “San Quentin xWays” slot game. Based around the infamous prison in Texas, players will be able to get a taste of prison life in virtual mode.
San Quentin xWays welcomes players to the prison yard, complete with barbed wire fences and security cameras.
When you launch this game, it feels like a standard slot game. Players see five reels and three rows. There are 243 ways to win and a pretty decent RTP of 96.03 percent. What players will find strange is the low betting range.
Starting with $0.20 and going only up to $32, there is not a lot on offer here, especially for mid stakes and high stakes players. However, this betting range is great for players who have a small bankroll.
As for the symbols, they are all thematic. The low-value symbols are the various paraphernalia found in prison. This includes handcuffs, toilet paper, lighters and soap. For more valuable symbols, you will have to score certain prisoners. They include guys named Beefy Dick, Loco Luis, Crazy Joe, Biker Bill and Heinrich the 3rd.
The game has several special features. First, there are the special symbols. Players will want to score the badge, which is the Wild symbol, or the prison tower, which is the Scatter symbol. There are also Enhancer Cells at the top and bottom of the reels. This is where special symbols can show up to enhance the game.
Enhancer Cells randomly open up and can reveal a symbol. It can be a high-paying symbol, which results in a normal win if it completes a payline. But it can also be a Wild Razor Splits or an xWay symbol. Razor Splits will double all the symbols on the reel it lands on, while the xWay symbol will ensure an entire reel is one symbol.
Finally, there are the Lockdown Spins. If players score three prison towers or pays for it, they will be given the chance to select how many free spins they want and the level of multiplier they will get. More free spins results in lower multipliers. Additionally, Jumping Wilds will be active during these spins. Besides substituting for normal symbols, Jumping Wilds move to random positions every spin.
Overall, this game offers you a very different perspective and is definitely worth a few spins.
