East Coast vs West Coast slot review (Nolimit City)

We already got to see San Quentin xWays with a brutal 150,000x max win. And their second 2021 release is another blast. Okay, the max win is not as insane, but believe me, the win potential is still enormous, with a maximum win of over 30,000x. The theme is fantastic as well as the features. The gameplay offers many original elements, and, yes, the slot also has the Nolimit Bonus feature Buy. Indeed, the slot is off limits!

East Coast vs West Coast slot – Gameplay and Features

The slot starts with 5 reels and 3 rows of symbols and makes use of the win-all-ways mechanic. There are at least 243 ways to win.

The number of win ways can expand rapidly once the xWays (one of Nolimit’s favourite features) comes into play. Up to a massive 83,275 ways.

The five high-paying symbols are a 100 dollar bill, a five-dollar bill, a one-dollar bill, a bulldog and a ghetto blaster. The five lows are the 10, J, Q, K, A.

The Wild symbols replace all symbols, except the Bonus symbols.


There are five enhancers, which are essential for you to win big. We have:

  • xWays: One of Nolimit City’s trademarks, where one symbol transforms into 2 or 3 mystery symbols, thereby expanding the height of the reels and therefore the number of win ways
  • xNudge Wilds: Another Nolimit City trademark, where a wild symbol nudges till it’s stacked. Each nudge increases the wild multiplier by +1
  • Multipliers: symbols get multipliers
  • Linked Reels: two or more reels are linked and get identical symbols (like in Netent’s Twin Spin)
  • Infectious xWays: you get multiple xWays (2 to 5 reels)

How do you win the free spins (East Coast spins, West Coast spins or the Coast to Coast spins)

3 to 4 Bonus Symbols gets you 8 or 10 East Coast or the West Coast spins. You win the more lucrative Coast to Coast spins (12 free spins) if you manage to spin 5 Bonus symbols.

The usual Nolimit Bonus Feature Buy is another way to get the free spins if you don’t have the patience to struggle yourself through the main game.

You get access to the East Coast, or the West Coast spins, for a cost of 80x the original bet. If you want to go for the real fireworks and get to play the Coast to Coast spins, you need to pay a whopping 420x the original stake!   

Free spins bonus round: East Coast or the West Coast spins

It’s up to you to decide if you want to play the West Coast spins or the more risky East Coast spins.

You get one of the four following Enhancers on 1 to 3 reels if you play the West Coast Spins: xWays, xNudge, multipliers or Linked Reels.

If you choose to play the East Coast spins, you get a guaranteed Infectious xWays on 1 to 3 reels.

It’s also possible to access the Coast to Coast spins if you manage to land additional bonus symbols, thereby unlocking positions on the top bar.

Free spins bonus round: Coast to Coast spins

Here is where the big bucks are! You 12 free spins, and for each free spin, you get two enhancers on at least 3 and at most 5 reels.

Payout percentage (RTP) is 96.04% to 96.89%.

The RTP is 96.04% if you play the main game.

The good news is that the RTP increases to 96.20% if you choose to buy the West or East Coast spins and an astounding 96.89% if you use the Bonus Buy feature for the Coast to Coast spins.

East Coast vs West Coast slot – the variance (volatility) is extremely high

And again, we’re talking about an extremely high variance slot (10 out of 10 according to Nolimit City).

We have seen many wins between 5,000x and 10,000x, and this is only just the beginning!
