San Quentin – a thrilling and graphically excellent slot

Nolimit City ended the year 2020 with a knockout with Tomb of Akhenaten and kicks 2021 off with one, which we’ll remember for a long time.

San Quentin: The win potential is entirely insane and is 150,000x (150 thousand) the bet!

Yes, this is about five times as much as the highest max win of their Book of Shadows slot.

San Quentin 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 expands rapidly though, as the reels can expand to 5 rows and as symbols can split (see below).

The 5 high-paying symbols are five prisoners, and the 5 low-paying ones are the typical prisoner attributes that prisoners have for themselves: a toilet roll of paper, a comb, a lighter, a piece of soap and handcuffs.

You also have Split Wilds and Jumping Wilds as well as Bonus Symbols.

Enhancer cells

The top and bottom row (the enhancer cells) are locked. If these open, the reels can expand up to 5 rows. The enhancer cells will only get the 5 high-paying symbols, Wilds, xWays symbols or the so-called Razor Split enhancer symbols.

The symbols on the regular positions split into two if you land a Razor Split symbol on the top or bottom enhancer cells. If you land these on both cells, the symbols on the regular positions split into 4 symbols!

You get up to 4 stacked symbols if you land xWays symbols on the top or bottom enhancer cells.

Split Wilds and Jumping Wilds

A Split Wild acts as a wild symbol and ensures that the other symbols on the reel will split into two. It gets you more ways to win.

Jumping Wilds move (jump) from one reel to another and its multiplier doubles, if it lands on a reel with a Razor Split enhancer. The maximum multiplier is an astounding 512x.

How do you win the free spins (Lockdown Spins)?

You win the free spins if you land 3, 4 or 5 Bonus Symbols. It gets you a random number of free spins with 1, 2 or 3 permanent Jumping Wilds and with 3, 4 or 5 reels with unlocked enhancer cells (both on the top and bottom row).

As usual Nolimit City also offers the Nolimit Bonus Feature Buy. You get a guaranteed 3, 4 or 5 Bonus Symbols on the next spin, if you buy the free spins for 100x, 400x or 2000x(!) the original stake.

Free spins bonus round: Lockdown Spins

It speaks for itself that your win potential is unbelievably insane if you land the 5 Bonus Symbols. It won’t often happen, given the incredible fee you pay, if you choose to buy these.

With the Jumpin Wilds and the opened top and bottom enhancer cells, you have all the tools to land something extraordinary!

Will the jumping wilds get the higher multipliers?

Payout percentage (RTP) is 96.03% to 96.95%.

The RTP is 96.03% if you play the main game.

However, the RTP increases to 96.26% if you choose to buy the free spins with the Nolimit Bonus Feature Buy (100x or 400x). But if you choose the most brutal variant (pay 2000x the original stake to get the guaranteed 5 Bonus Symbols), you’ll get an RTP of 96.95%, which is pretty cool!

That way, it becomes ones of the Nolimit City slots with the highest RTP.

Beware though, that even the most trustworthy online casinos can offer the same game at a lower RTP, as Nolimit City has two versions for the same game. It’s best to check the game rules, before you play.

San Quentin slot – the variance (volatility) is extremely high

It should not come as a surprise, that we’re talking about an extremely high variance slot (10 out of 10 according to Nolimit City).

Nolimit City has already recorded wins of 150,000x. And the slot is only just released!

The max win of 150.000x pays out once every 1.8 billion times (on average).

Up to now, we only have Netent’s Starburst XXXtreme (max win 200,000x),  Electric Elephant’s Super Boost (max win 200,000x) and Pragmatic Play’s Peking Luck (max win of 180,000x) topping San Quentin!
