It’s not easy setting foot into the San Quentin Xways slot, as this prison may swallow you up and spit you back up – but with a max win of 150,000 times your bet at stake the brave will be well rewarded.
This is not the first of the No Limit City slot with Xways – if you haven’t read our Punk Rocker slot review, you should. It explains exactly how this little function works.
In essence, you have a block of cells the top and bottom of the reels. If a bonus symbol lands, those cells open up to reveal either high paying symbols (ie. the prisoners in the most famous jail in California) or special wilds and xPay symbols.
Xpay symbols can split all the symbols on the reels giving you more ways to win. Split Wild symbols can split symbols around it on the reels to (again) give you more ways to win. It’s even more complicated and confusing that in the Megaways slot mechanics, but once you get your head around it, it becomes. whole load of fun.
Getting to that top amount is near impossible because you’ll need so many bonus or wilds to make it happen. But by giving you crazy numbers, it also gives you the chance to just hit half of that and still walk away a pimp.
Take the max win of 150,000 times your bet. You do you get that? By getting multipliers in the free spins. During the bonus games you not only have a multiplier on one high paying symbol, but you can get up to 512x multiplier on the walking wild on screen.
You increase the multiplier by landing your walking or jumping wild next to a split wild. You will have to do that again, and again, and again, and again, to get that big a multiplier.
Is it near impossible? Sure. But with those kinds of numbers even winning half of the top amount would be enough to make you walk away happy.
We wouldn’t say this San Quentin Xways slot is accessible to all gamblers. In fact, if you’ve only been playing for a little while, it may be worth finding something a little easier on the wallet or the head – may be the Bonus Bunnies slot?
But if you are brave enough to walk into the most notorious prison in the whole of the United States, there is a whole load of different features and fun aspects to the game that will surprise, delight and frustrate you in equal measure.
We have to say that we looking forward to seeing what Nolimit City come up next, especially as the Monkey’s Gold Xpays slot and Warrior Graveyard Xnudge slot had equally strange and unusual mechanics.

Enhancer Cells: At the top and bottom of the game you'll notice closed-cell position. When triggered to open, it may reveal 1 of the top 5 paying symbols, the wild, the razor split or the xWays symbol.
Bonus Triggers: Land 1 or 2 bonus symbol will open up the Enhancer cell on that reel. The bonus symbol will also then turn wild.
Split Wilds: In the base game, Split Wilds can land on any reel. The Split Wild will split all the regular symbols on the same reel, but not itself, giving you more ways to win.
Lockdown Spins: 3, 4 or 5 bonus symbols will trigger at least 8 Lockdown Spins with either 1, 2 or 3 starting Jumping Wilds. All the Enhancer reels will be open and active throughout the whole feature, with the ability to add additional Jumping Wilds if you land another bonus symbol.
A random multiplier will also be added to one of the random high paying convicts.
The Jumping Wilds will jump to a random regular reel position on each spin and when it lands on a reel with a Razor Split wild, it will double its multiplier. That multiplier will stay for the remainder of the feature. The maximum multiplier for a Jumping Wild is 512x.
This is a hard game to describe, even more than a Megaways game, because every spin feels a little different from the next. That's because you never quite know what cell will open up, what wild will show up, and how many ways to win you are going to get.
But we can't deny that all the numbers are there for this mobile slot game. The San Quentin Xways slot RTP is 96.03% (which is about average), you can win a huge 150,000x your total stake, and you can bet as little as 0.20 a spin.
That top win should be taken with a pinch of salt - to get there you would have to line up so many different components, you might as well call on the devil himself to get it done. But even winning half of that is more than in online slots such as hot favourites the Regal Streak slot or the Piggy Riches Megaways slot machine.
In short, if you are willing to fight your way through San Quentin, you'll end up either dead or as rich as a crime lord. There's no in between.
