Theme of The Game
Rather than a superhero theme, Nolimit City appear to have gone the villain route in Infectious 5 (at least that’s the look that they have going). We get the five members of the team as symbols on the reels (Havoc, Toxicity, Misery, Torch, and Mind Flayer), alongside a series of much less exciting Royals (10 to A). The design quality is excellent, with comic-book level graphics in use for the background and the top symbols. On the other hand, the Royals are there just as filler content, they’re not doing much for the story.
Nolimit City is not exactly a new developer, but they’ve been making waves recently, thanks to the quality of the slot machines they’ve been releasing. Infectious 5 is a great example of that, as are the various Xways slots that they designed so far, including titles like San Quentin and East Coast vs West Coast.
How To Play It
You start things off as you’re selecting the bet. It’s the total amount, and it goes between $0.20 and $50 for the upcoming spin.
What the game gives you, is an initial 1024 ways to win, but as you’re about to find out, the 5×4 reels can expand through special xWays symbols, and can end up with 110,592 ways at most.
You have xWays symbols for one, and these are icons that are a bit like mystery features. They land, and they transform into 2 or 3 symbols, adding more positions to the reel, and as a result boosting the number of ways to win as well. Get those xWays icons on all positions, to boost the game area to its maximum size, and have up to 110,592 ways to win active.
There is a wild that you can use as well, and the substitute is easy to spot since it has a W logo. It’s going to help out as a substitute, but that’s not all it does for you. Provided that you also had an xWays symbol visible at the time, an infection will start, and the xWays icon expands to other instances of the same symbol (turning those symbols into 2-3 of the same type, boosting the ways to win).
Depending on how many scatter symbols (Bonus logo) appear, you get one of two types of free spins.
With 3-4 scatters, the options are:
- Lock N Load, with 7-8 rounds during which you get sticky wilds, so the Infectious xWays will trigger each time. Up to 3x multipliers can also be available on those wilds.
- Toxic Hazard, where there are 9-10 free games, with up to 5 wilds placed on the middle columns each round.
If you had all 5 scatters visible, then you get a super version of the feature we mentioned above. There, you only get one of the five characters to show up, in a golden version which pays the top prize when possible.
Infectious 5 will be one of the many new slot machines to deliver excellent top prizes, with potential jackpots of 55,555x the stake being on the table in this one. It’s a high volatility game, obviously, but its RTP is where it should be, at 96.02%.
Infectious 5 takes the xWays system to the next level, especially in terms of potential payouts, and it’s a slot machine that I’d recommend to any experienced player. Due to a higher volatility rating, beginners might have a hard time with it, just because of how quickly they can lose their money.
