Overview Infectious 5
The world has been cast into chaos and darkness. Acid rain falls from the sky and the world’s natural spaces have been destroyed by pollution and human instigated catastrophe. However, there is hope, as a collection of heroes have been mutated by the toxic sludge, giving them extraordinary abilities. Will these heroes prevail and bring world peace? Or will the Mad Max-like mayhem continue? That is what you will find out in this new slot from prolific designers Nolimit City.
This post-apocalyptic slot has a range of exciting themed features and game mechanics. These include the game’s unique X-ways gaming feature, which uses a combination of symbols to expand the size of symbols on the board to give you more ways to win. In addition, this game has a great brace of free spin rounds and a special feature which Nolimit City call their Infectious Spins: Mayhem Mode feature. This last feature merges symbols to create what is in effect a huge multi-symbol wild. Lastly, there is also a bonus buy feature which sadly is not available in the UK.
Theme and Symbols
This game has a graphic novel (comic book) feel about it straight from the off. It's post-apocalyptic setting, neon spandex-wearing heroes and terrifically detailed elements are all classic signifiers of the kind of popular graphic novels which have dominated the art form for years. In terms of inspiration, this slot game seems to have drawn from multiple sources from X-Men to Mad Max to Watchmen. Each lending their aesthetic to the visceral imagery we see in this game.
The background for Infectious 5 (which by the way is the group name given to the 5 heroes in the game) is a kind of modern steampunk factory that looks out into the dark. The background is dominated by atmospheric rain which is the main pathetic fallacy device used in the visual make-up of this slot. Apart from the rain and the black/blue night beyond, there isn’t much else on display apart from a variety of chains that allude to the industrial nature of the setting.
The board on the other hand is heavily stylised, with uranium pipes, warning stickers and a collection of factory paraphernalia hanging off the board here and there. The idea here we are guessing is to make sure that players know they are in some sort of toxic wasteland, which is very much Nolimit City’s general vibe when they approach most of their slot game’s settings.
The symbols for this game are made up of the obligatory card symbols from 10 to A in royals and then the 5 members of the Infectious 5. To our surprise, Nolimit City has even given each hero a name. The heroes are named Havoc, Mind Flayer, Torch, Misery and Toxicity. The most valuable of these terrifying heroes in terms of the game is Mid Flayer, who will award players 4x their stake if they manage to land 5 of them in combination. In addition, there is the wild symbol, which in this game is represented by a golden W. Lastly, the drum of radioactive waste is the scatter symbol. Collecting 5 of which will trigger the bonus round.
Infectious 5 is played on a 5 -reel gaming board using Nolimit City’s novel xWays gaming mechanic. This means that if an xWays symbol lands, it reveals a single symbol which then elongates to create a new symbol that fills either 2 or 3 positions. There is a maximum of 110,592 ways to win thanks to this mechanic.
To create wins in this game, players must land matching symbols or wilds on adjacent reels, starting from reel 1. The betting range for Infectious 5 is 20p to £100 per spin. To change your betting level per spin, use the bet adjuster tool located at the bottom of the playing window.
Further information regarding the slot, including a display of the paytable, can be accessed by clicking on the settings menu. The spin button is located on the right-hand side of the reels. You can set up auto spins in the game’s menu.
The volatility for Infectious 5 is extremely high. The return to player percentage for this game is 96.02%. The biggest payout that players can win on one spin is a massive 55,555 x your total stake.
The first feature that players should be aware of is the gaming mechanic unique to Nolimit City games. This is the xWays dynamic we have mentioned previously. This dynamic comes into play if you land a special xWays symbol and a wild at the same time. When this happens, the revealed new symbol will expand and with it expand any of the same symbols which are currently present on the board. This gaming dynamic leads to the board’s pay lines expanding, and your chances of creating a win growing.
Next on the feature list are the ‘Infectious Spins’ free spins rounds. To trigger the spins, players must land 3 or 4 of the bonus scatters on the reels on the same spin. This will then give you the choice of 2 free spins rounds.
The first round is called the Toxic Hazard round. This round will award you with 9 free spins or 10 if you managed to land 4 bonus symbols. In this round somewhere between 1 and 5 wild symbols will land on the playing window, on the middle 3 reels on every spin. This means you are guaranteed to trigger the xWays feature if you land an xWays symbol.
The other round you can pick is called the Lock n’ Load round. This round gives you 7 or 8 spins (scatter dependant). In this round, any wild that land on the central 3 reels immediately becomes stuck to its position. These wilds can also come with special multiplier values attached to them. Every wild landed also adds one more free spin to your tally.
Lastly, there is the game’s ‘Mayhem Mode’ feature. To trigger this feature, players have to land 5 of the bonus symbols on the same spin. This feature offers you access to the same free spins round as above but in an upgraded format. Triggering this bonus will give you the choice of 12 Toxic Hazard: Mayhem Mode spins or 10 Lock n’ Load: Mayhem mode spins.
In both versions of the feature, the Infectious 5 symbols merge to create a homogenous Golden Infectious 5 symbol. If you activate the xWays bonus, only the Golden Infectious 5 symbols will be involved in the play.
Crazy and full throttle, Infectious 5 is just like Nolimit City’s other games. If you love intense post-apocalyptic thrill rides, this is the slot for you. Even if you aren’t particularly interested in this game’s theme, the max payout and amazing features might be enough to persuade you. On the other hand, this free slot is very volatile and the RTP isn’t the best, so you might have to wait a while before things get going.
