No Limit City takes its brand of extremely volatile slots into another volatile environment – San Quentin Prison, California. A lilting Spanish guitar riff guides the slots action, while the expanding reel-case echoes other highly volatile No Limit City slots like Warrior Graveyard and Punk Rocker.

The inmates of the prison in San Quentin xWays (the slot’s full title) are the game’s highest paying symbols, and with names like Beefy Dick and Crazy Joe Labrador you should be afraid. Very afraid. The Wild symbols nudge in all kinds of ways to boost win potential, splitting symbols and enhancing cells to maximum effect.

Pros & Cons

  • Extreme volatility offers huge win potential from low max bet.
  • Lockdown Spins delivers madcap wins.
  • Split Wilds split symbols and expand the reelcase for more Ways to Win.
  • Extreme volatility makes for lower base game payouts.
  • Only one bonus feature.
  • Split Wild animations slow down gameplay.

How to Play

The bet toggle sits by the side of the reels, accessed by the dollar sign. Select your bet level and press the spin button beneath the reels – the autoplay feature is accessed directly beneath so you can set a number of rounds on the same bet level if you choose, setting loss limits and win takes. When you play online slots from No Limit City you have the option to view big wins from other players, accessed via the star button. The standard number of Ways to Win is set at 243, but this expands with every Split Wild you land. They push game symbols into the Enhancer Cells above the reels, essentially expanding the reelcase and splitting the symbols above and below it to create extra Ways to Win. You have to match all symbols left to right, and need three Bonus symbols to trigger the Lockdown Spins bonus feature.

Symbols

The mean-looking inmates of San Quentin are the highest paying game symbols, awarding x2.5-x5 your stake for landing five on a payline. Toilet Roll, Handcuffs, Shanks, Lighter and Soap prop up the prison pay table, but just like in other No Limit City slots like Harlequin Carnival it is the various Wild symbols that take the San Quentin slot to another level. The locked Enhancer Cells expand the reelcase when they land as various Wilds, either as Wild, xWays or Razor Split Wilds. The Watchtower Scatter triggers the bonus feature when three or more land anywhere on the reels. The Bonus Scatters transform into either of the Wilds whenever you land one or two of them.

Bonuses

The San Quentin slot keeps the base game interesting by utilising the various Wild modifiers, while the Lockdown Spins bonus feature is the key to the biggest winnings.

Bonus Name Bonus Explanation
Lockdown Spins

This is the main bonus feature in the San Quentin slot, triggered by landing 3-5 Watchtower Scatters.

  • 3 Scatters – 1 Jumping Wild
  • 4 Scatters – 2 Jumping Wilds
  • 5 Scatters – 3 Jumping Wilds

There is no set number of spins awarded, with the reels on which the number of triggering Scatters landed spinning to reveal the number of spins allocated.

This will be between 5-15 spins. If you land one or more inmates on the triggering reels, you will be awarded an additional multiplier for every one of those inmate symbols that appear. The inmate mystery symbol can reveal one of the top five paying symbols or the Jumping Wild.

Split Wild

The Split Wild can land on any reel during the base game, and splits the symbols above and below into the Enhancer Cells, expanding the game’s Ways to Win.

Razor Wild

During the base game the Razor Split symbol splits all symbols on the reel to double positions. If Razor Split lands on both top and bottom Enhancer Cells on the same reel it will split them twice.
