Overview of East Coast vs West Coast
East Coast vs West Coast is the latest slot to be released from the developers at Nolimit City. Everyone remembers the past in a different way but what this slot offers is Nolimit’s take on what many would consider hip hops Golden age, the 1990s. The way they used the imagery from this era is spectacular and the game is stacked with five enhancers, four re-spins/ free spin modes and therefore this is a big game in every sense of the word.
Design and Symbols
When it comes to the design the vibrant colours confirm that without a doubt you are in the 1990s. Everything points to the time of DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince complete with a dash of grittier action, and the time which was famous for the East Coast West Coast disagreements that finally spiralled out of control and led to the death of The Notorious B.I.G.
Players will be pleased to hear that this slot is not as dark in fact it is quite the opposite. The laidback soundtrack introduces the action and has a Beastie Boys jazz-funk instrumental going on. The visuals are vibrant and split into bright yellow reds of the West coast on the left, and the cooler blue of the East Coast on the right. The graffiti font is used for the lettering, and there are whole host of symbols, animations and effects that really bring out the playful side of this theme. The highlights include some cheeky comments when your spins lead to no wins, and you will see pit bulls in gold necklaces and three blinged up former presidents which only goes to prove that the developers had a lot of fun creating this game and have captured an emotion that is quite infectious.
All the symbols that you will come across are in line with the theme, you have the usual playing cards 10 through to Ace and these are represented by graffiti sprayed on a brick wall, these are the lowest payers. The high paying symbols are represented by a ghetto blaster, a Pitbull dog and three presidents that have being made to look like gangsters on bank notes. The first president is George Washington on a $1.00 bill, he is followed by honest Abe on a $5 bill and then finally there is Benjamin Franklin on a $100 bill. If you land five of a kind with the higher value symbols you will receive a pay-out that is worth 2x to 7.5x your stake. There is also a wild which is denoted by the big chunky fore finger gold ring and this symbol can substitute for any others except for the bonus to create winning combinations.
Ready to Play
This slot is played on 5-reels, and there is a default number of ways to win that start from 243 and rise to 84,375. While some may feel that hip hop is a rather extreme form of expression since it has become mainstream it has started to feature in many different slots. The developers have labelled this slot as extremely volatile equating to a 10 out of 10 rating. The hit frequency is higher than you may first think standing at 30.27% however, do not expect to win much from the regular hits. The slot is playable on all devices and has a wide bet range that will appeal to a wide number of players starting from just 20p per spin to a maximum of £100 per spin.
When it comes to the features this slot offers five different enhancers, re-spins and three free spin games. The key in the features is the scatter symbol since the enhancers will not appear organically in the base game. These enhancers include the following:
X ways- these symbols morph into 2-3 instances of the same symbol type
X nudge Wilds- three Wilds that always nudge so that they are completely visible. With each nudge the win multipliers increased by 1 and if you land more than one x nudge wilds and they nudge in to view the values are added together.
Multipliers- symbols are multiplied to create more wins and if you land more than one multiplier their values are multiplied together.
Linked reels- two or more reels can become linked landing the same symbols. Infectious X ways- once activated the revealed ex ways symbol will infect others of its type on the reels and they will all then expand.
If you land two scatters on your reels you will activate the Drive-By Re-spin, for the re-spin one enhancer from above is randomly selected and stays active. Landing three or four of the scatter symbols will reward you with 8 or 10 free spins. Prior to the free spin round starting you need to choose either the East Coast spins or West Coast spins. The East Coast spins land an infectious X way symbol on every spin. Above your reels you will see a bar which begins with the two left most top positions above reels one and two locked so enhancers cannot land there, however, landing scatter symbols adds two more spins and unlocks one of these positions. If you unlock all the positions the East Coast mode turns into the Coast-to-Coast spins.
The West Coast Spins act in the same way, except the two rightmost top positions above your 4th & 5th reels are blocked instead. Also, the X ways, X nudge wilds, multipliers and linked reels are available instead of the infectious X ways. If you unlock both enhanced bars and land 5 scatters you will activate the Super free spins mode which is known as the coast-to-coast free spins. During this feature you will see two enhancers land simultaneously on each spin and this will significantly increase your potential to win.
Finally, there is the bonus buy feature which offers you two options, by paying 80x your bet you can choose either the East Coast or West Coast free spins, however, if you are feeling particularly flash you can pay 420x the bet to buy yourself into the Coast to Coast free spins.
This slot is a brilliant snapshot of the 1990s, and the developers have done exceptionally well recreating the chaotic time of creativity that began in the 90s and have managed to have a great time in the process.
On the gaming side of things, the base game can feel a little like you have been left out and just watching the world go by through a haze of smoke, and enjoyable feeling but not really achieving a great deal. The drive by re-spins will help obviously and there is a possibility that you can land more than just two scatters in view. Players will know that it is far nicer to get a minor feature consolation rather than nothing at all.
This slot loves to tease players and serves up a plethora of different ways to win all be it in smaller amounts. The free spins in this game however truly takes things up to a next level particularly as you can have enhancers flashing all over your screen, however it is not all great as you may find that they do not quite link up to the symbols that you want.
However, it is not all bad news as completely out of nowhere the symbols will link and you will be rewarded with a solid win that is not just satisfying but can be very profitable too, with wins of up to 30,618x your stake possible.
I enjoyed playing East Coast vs West Coast a lot, for some players the theme will not appeal, however you can certainly see that the people at Nolimit City have had a real blast making this slot. The unique features can tease players but when things come together the result is something incredibly special. I would rate this slot as a 7.5/10 and highly recommend all players to have a spin or two.
