Even though Nolimit City is a relatively new name on the iGaming market, the studio is well-known among slot fans due to its outstanding visuals and superb mechanics. Dynamic gameplays with unique themes, crazy good animations, innovative bonus features and high winning potential are the reason why Twitch streamers include the Nolimit games in their daily streaming playlists.
Known as xFeatures or xSeries, the special slot mechanics such as xWays or xNudge have put Nolimit City on the map and made it one of the most recognizable names in online gambling. Now, let’s take a deeper look and find out how these mechanics really work!
The mechanic that can help you get more wild symbols as well as increase the multipliers attached to them is known as xNudge. Whenever players land a wild symbol, it has the potential to nudge up or down to fill the reel with wilds, raising its multiplier by 1 value for each nudge. This doesn’t sound like much but when combined with other features such as sticky multipliers, it can make a huge difference.
First appearing in the Hot Nudge slot, xNudge was the first offering in the xSeries from Nolimit City. However, it was not until Tombstone did xNudge become recognized as a fan-favorite mechanic, evident by the fact that Tombstone remains one of Nolimit City’s best-sellers to this day. The mechanic is very frequently implemented to this day and you can find it in slots such as Deadwood, DragonTribe, and Barbarian Fury.
Inspired by a groundbreaking slot feature Megaways, Nolimit City has come up with xWays. While in a Megaways slot every reel holds a random number of symbols, xWays slots still have the traditional fixed reels but when an xWays symbol lands, it will split into multiple identical symbols. This action increases the possible ways to win and raises players’ chances of landing a big cash prize.
xWays made its first appearance in Punk Rocker (2020). From then on, numerous Nolimit slots have incorporated this mechanic into their DNA, such as Dragon Tribe, San Quentin, and Punk Toilet.
Introduced in xWays Hoarder xSplit in July 2021, this mechanic is one of the most creative features on the market serving multiple purposes. Firstly, it splits all symbols to the left of it in half. After that, xSplit symbols turn into wilds, aiding players in finding a big win.
Not stopping there, the split effect can be multiplied with xWays, which means – if an xWays symbol splits into two, an xSplit behind it will split it into 4. Finally, when the xSplit symbol lands to the right of a Scatter symbol, the Scatter becomes a Super Scatter. These special Scatters will transform into xWays symbols and if the Bonus spins round is triggered, they will turn themselves and all symbols below them into sticky xWays symbols.
An xBomb Wild symbol works exactly like its name suggests – it blows up and destroys all neighboring symbols so new symbols can drop down to replace them. This mechanic works even if the Wild xBomb doesn’t form any win, thus providing new possibilities to land a winning combination. Moreover, every xBomb Wild that explodes will also increase the multiplier by 1.
First making its introduction with Fire in The Hole (2021), xBomb became quite popular among the players so it came as no surprise when the studio decided to add it to its next releases like Evil Goblins and Das xBoot.
