xWays® unlocks unprecedented win potential for players. Usually seen in a fixed Ways game, any xWays symbols that land reveals a stack of the same symbol, increasing the ways available to win, and when working alongside some of the other mechanics available in this series, such as xNudge or xSplit, can pave the way for some huge wins.

xWays® first made an appearance in Pixies Vs Pirates, although many players will more likely recognise this mechanic from Punk Rocker, an early 2020 release. Alongside these two releases, xWays has made an appearance in a host of other NolimitCity games, including Dragon Tribe, East Coast vs West Coast, and San Quentin – the early 2021 release which rocked the community with news of a 150,000x maximum win availability.Infectious xWays is the most widely misunderstood of the xSeries, with many players not understanding how this mechanic works. Often, players find the concept of Infectious xWays confusing. Still, this mechanic has now appeared in East Coast vs West Coast, and Infectious 5, wherein this was the only mechanic available, assisted only be original xWays. 
 
Despite seeming bewildering, Infectious xWays is actually very easy to understand – any xWays symbols that appear will reveal the same symbol, and if the symbol revealed is already visible on the reels, each in view will be ‘infected' and will expand as if they are xWays – producing additional ways to win.
 
 Whilst working alongside win multipliers, or linked reels within East Coast vs West Coast, this mechanic can be instrumental in producing life-changing wins.

The slot Infectious 5 xWays from Nolimit City revealed a lot of interesting features during the spins. We previously got a taste of the Infectious xWays mechanic in their East Coast vs West Cost slot, which really had great potential, and it felt very right when they chose to create a slot where they mainly focus on this mechanic. It's a slot that starts a little innocent with 5 reels and 4 rows, but thanks to the xWays it can be up to 8 rows. As a result, 1024 ways to win can be up to an incredible 110592 ways to win. xWays immediately creates an opportunity to get more winning combinations, but once this symbol lands with the Wild, the really fun things start to happen. Since when the Infectious xWays is activated, a symbol will show 2 to 3 of the same symbol types below it, and at the same time it will spread like a virus on the reels.Where every one of the same symbol types also expand to the same size. The spread of this is fast and can quickly change your previous 1024 ways to win to become 110592 ways to win. The increase of ways to win, xWays and wilds are intertwined in a very elegant way during the spins and nothing feels superfluous but rather in a perfect balance. Once again, in the Bonus mode, you get the opportunity to choose the feature you prefer the most, which is a much appreciated feature among Nolimits casino slots. Although their themes and features can vary greatly from the various slots, they have two recurring things that always apply and that is that a high volatility prevails and that you can succeed in winning crazy big, where we in this slot can get up to 55555X the bet. Infectious 5 xWays is an elegantly created slot that with the help of the expanding effect of their Infectious xWays mechanic can create an incredible number of ways to win and also big wins.

If you’re looking for a game that delivers complex gameplay, you’ve come to the right place. The Infectious 5 xWays slot is about as far away from a classic fruit machine as you can get. The xWays and Infectious xWays take a bit of getting used to so this is a slot that I really recommend trying out in demo mode first (above) until you get accustomed to the unusual gameplay. Infectious 5 takes the Infectious xWays feature to a whole different level. This is evident in the Infectious Spins: Lock n’ Load feature where the you play with sticky multiplier wilds. This allows for potential wins of 55,555 x your total stake per spin. The Mayhem Mode features offer the best winning potential as all 5 superhero symbols turn into 1 golden Infectious 5 symbol. This means more of the same symbol on the reels for bigger possible payouts. However, winning the max payout will occur once every 28 million spins. This the epitome of a high risk, high reward game as with most Nolimit City slots. Innovative and explosively volatile, Infectious 5 xWays is worth playing if you like superhero slots with a difference. In summary, it will infuriate you to the extent where you might consider becoming a villain. If the sticky multiplier wilds and Infectious xWays land though, you’ll be a hero. You should also check out Fire in the Hole (from Nolimit City) which comes with 60,000 x stake max wins and uses the xBomb mechanic. If you like the superhero theme, Playtech’s Suicide Squad has a similar gritty feel and comes with 4 progressive jackpots.
