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.xSplit® was first made available within xWays Hoarder xSplit, released in July 2021. On this first occasion, xSplit symbols go a long way towards assisting wins through the feature, as any xSplit symbols in view to the right of a Scatter symbol will turn the Scatter into a Super Scatter symbol – which within this release assists in progressing the feature through several levels. However, aside from the progression through bonus levels, xSplit as individual symbols increase win ways during base play. Any xSplit symbol in view will split all symbols to the left of it into two, increasing the ways to win. After this, the xSplit symbols will turn into wilds – for the potential of huge wins.At an extra cost per spin, the player gets an increased chance of getting into the Bonus Modes. The way this happens varies from game to game. The payout for each symbol is not affected.xNudge®:  A simple yet effective feature that turns any game into a massive potential bearing title! xNudge works alongside wild reels, wherein landing a wild in view has the potential to increase the multiplier attached, as the wild nudges to fill the entire reel. If the wild is not centred in the reel, it will either nudge up or down, incrementing its multiplier by 1 for each nudge. An xBomb Wild symbol substitutes any symbol except for the Bonus symbols. An exploding xBomb Wild removes adjacent symbols except for Bonus symbols and will increase the win multiplier by one for the next collapse.

All xBomb Wilds will explode before the next collapse, except when the Wild Mining feature is triggered. An xBomb Wild will explode when there is a win, no matter if it’s a part of the winning combination or not. It will explode and trigger a new collapse if there isn’t a win, and wild Mining feature is not triggered.The dead aren’t mourned here; xRIP® is triggered by any spin if the total win is less than the base stake, then there is no payout...

Nolimit City, known for constantly crossing borders in the gaming world with new innovative features and themes, chooses this time to create a game themed around the border between Mexico and US. Unlike this place's immense security that creates difficulties for people to cross the border, the game provider elegantly moves into a new territory, as they introduce the cluster pays mechanic. It's something we haven't seen before in games from them, and it proves to intertwine very elegantly with the other features. It's a cluster of nerve-wracking x-symbols that you can take advantage of during the spins, with the xWays, Split, xBomb and xCluster giving it great variety among the spins. The base game many times proved to be able to deliver hefty wins during our spins, but the bonus game, especially the Coyote Spins was along with its infected cluster symbols, steady win multiplier and generous number of free spins, a very festive bonus game to take part in. There you quickly understood how it can be possible to win up to 44288X the bet, which by the way is a figure based on the number of kilos of powder for snow parties that were seized in 2021. The game has a solid setup with features, and it was about time this game provider took part of the cluster pays mechanic, better late than never and they apply it with great skill to this theme. Its captivating effects along with this great variety of events happening on the reels, will with great probability make this a new favorite for many players out there. The Border is a slot where Nolimit City ironically breaks the border and tests uncharted territory, where they apply the cluster pays mechanic that intertwines wonderfully with the other features.

Grid slots have become very popular in recent times. Slots like Jammin’ Jars 2 (Push Gaming) and Star Clusters Megaclusters (BTG) have been cult favourites at many online casinos. Nolimit City has blown the concept out of the water, or over the barbed wire wall I must say with The Border slot. In terms of the theme, the US/Mexico border issue is a controversial one due to the fact its one of the world’s most lethal land borders where hundreds of hopefuls die every year. Nolimit City is no stranger to controversy with the releases of Tombstone RIP (with murder, hangings and amputations) and Karen Maneater (based on an entitled/demanding white woman). Fair play to the provider for having the guts to create a slot that, again, will divide opinion and stir up emotion. When it comes to the gameplay, there are lots of bonus features to get your head around. We’ve seen many of Nolimit City’s mechanics come together in The Border to devastating effect. This enables a unique and new playing experience not seen before in grid slots. I do recommend you play the demo version above to get acquainted with everything that’s going on though. The bigger wins will come from the free spins features. This is due to the xCluster feature increasing the win multiplier by 1 for each unique symbol cluster. xWays and xSplit symbols can see the grid grow which allows wining clusters of over 160 symbols. Add in the multiplier increases for potential wins of up to 44,288 x bet. I particularly liked the Coyote Spins feature where the win multiplier can only increase. You will upgrade to the Coyote Spins feature from the Mule Spins feature once every 15 triggers. Finally, using the Boosted xRIP feature is seriously worth considering. The max win is achieved much more often (1 in 8 million spins vs 1 in 44 million spins). Also, triggering the free spins will happen every 112 spins vs 260 spins (on average). In summary, The Border slot has combined many of Nolimit City’s mechanics and added a new one for an explosive cocktail. Extremely volatile, this all-action grid slot delivers controversy, explosive wins and huge clusters that can lead to big payouts. I just hope you don’t underestimate the power of the border and end up being the vulture’s evening feed.

Base Cluster
Top 10 Winners

Game Features

Cluster Payout

Cluster wins are achieved with five or more matching symbols that are touching horizontally and/or vertically. After a winning cluster, the symbols are destroyed allowing new ones to drop in.

xBomb® Wild

Wall? What wall? An exploding xBomb Wild removes adjacent symbols except for Scatter and xNudge symbols increasing the win multiplier by one for the next collapse.\n\nIf the xBomb gets split, it will increase the win multiplier for the next collapse with the amount it has been split into.

Boosted xRip®

At a cost of an extra 50%, the player is guaranteed a Scatter symbol on reel 1. When Boosted xRip is activated, there are no payout for the winnings below the base bet. The payout for each symbol is not affected.

Mule Spins

Freedom awaits! 6 Scatters will trigger 10 Mule Spins. \n \nWhen xWays is part of Cluster wins, Cluster symbols on the same reel would be infected before the xSplit and xNudge get into action. xWays revealing 2 or 4 symbols would infect them to split into 2 or 4 symbols respectively.\n \nLanding additional Scatter symbols in Mule Spins will upgrade the bonus mode to Coyote Spins, awarding 2 extra spins per Scatter.

Coyote Spins

7 or more Scatters trigger the Coyote Spins. 7 Scatter symbols award 12 spins, and any additional Scatter symbols will award 2 extra spins per symbol.\n\nxWays symbols will infect Cluster symbols, but unlike Mule Spins all the cluster symbols will get infected.\n\nAll xBombs will add +1 symbol value on all symbols with an xX indicator that are not blown away.\n\nThe win multiplier count does not reset during the Coyote Spins.

xCluster® - During Bonus Modes

Illegals intercepted! 2 or more unique symbol clusters in the same avalanche would trigger xCluster - increasing the win multiplier by +1 for each unique symbol cluster from the second cluster onwards.\n\nThe xCluster multiplier is instantly added and affects all current wins of that spin.

xNudge® Cluster Wild

xNudge Cluster WIld is a Wild symbol that can nudge both up and down if it’s a part of a winning cluster and increments the win multiplier by +1 for each symbol it nudges over.\n\nThe nudge continues until no further symbols are part of a winning Cluster. If the xNudge Cluster Wild has been split by an xSplit, it will start by adding its own multiplier to the overall win multiplier.

Seized and Destroyed

Not on our watch! The max payout of the game is 44,288 times the base bet.

Nolimit Bonus - Feature Buy Functionality
