Not for the Faint-Hearted
The slot‘s maths model is described as “extremely volatile“, rated ten out of ten. There are three available RTP configurations, with 96.07% being the default and the most generous one. When it comes to betting options, a stake of $0.20 is enough to set the reels into motion, while the maximum amount of money you can spend on every spin is $100.
Choosing the xBet option lowers the RTP to 96.04% and costs 20% more. However, it guarantees a Scatter symbol on reel 2. As for reels, there are five of them in play, along with three rows, though they can be expanded later in the game.
There are 243 ways to win in the Main Game. Wins are formed by landing matching icons on adjacent reels, starting from left to right. The design of symbols matches the slot‘s theme, featuring sinister items, bones, a scared woman, a policeman, a doctor covered in blood and the Bodycam Butcher himself. Symbols pay from 0.9x the bet for five lows to 5x the stake for the highest-paying icon. Wilds land in different shapes and replace all regulars in all of them.
Serial: Slot Features
As we mentioned, Nolimit City is known for its fantastic features. Serial is no exception, boasting exciting extras such as xMechanics, respins, Enhancer Cells, two bonus rounds, the xBizarre option and a couple of bonus buy functionalities.
After forming a winning combination, all triggering symbols stay on the reels while the rest of the grid respins. If a new win is formed, players will receive another respin. With each subsequent respin, a new Enhancer Cell is unlocked.
After opening up, Enhancer Cells reveal one of these prizes:
- xWays – This option reveals between two and four paying symbols of the same kind. Hitting more than one xWays icon will show the same symbol type in all instances. If two Scatters land, they turn into xWays symbols.
- xNudge Wild – This is a Wild that permanently covers a whole reel. Every nudger will boost its multiplier by one, which regularly appears on reels 2, 3, and 4.
- Wild – a regular Wild.
- Character symbols – awards one of the high-paying icons.
Appearing only on reel 5, the xSplit Wild splits all symbols into two new ones. This includes Scatters as well, doubling the number of freebies they award. If it splits an xNudge, it will double its multiplied. If xWays gets split, it will increase in size.
Once these symbols are revealed, all other regular-sized icons are infected and expand on the five-by-three grid.
Land three Scatter symbols to activate the Search bonus round. Each of the triggering Scatters has value, and once all of them are summed up, you‘ll receive a corresponding number of spins.
While the round is active, additional Enhancer Cells appear on reels 2, 3, and 4, increasing the size of the board to a 3-5-5-5-5-3 layout. It takes an xSplit symbol to upgrade to the Kill bonus round and award two more freebies.
The maximum win available in the Main Game is worth 18,700x your stake. Once you reach this level, you‘ll be able to use the xBizarre option and make the most of the slot‘s win potential. The feature comes with three stages, during which you‘ll have to make a fifty-fifty choice. Making all the right choices awards a significantly bigger payout of 74,800x the total bet. The good news is that the wrong choice won‘t leave you empty-handed, as the game allows you to keep your previous winnings.
Players can also opt to buy their way to the bonus round. There are three options. You can buy the Search round for 78x the stake, which features an RTP of 96.27%. Buying the Kill round costs 480x the bet and comes with a payout percentage of 96.38%. The third option is the Lucky Draw. It costs 279x your stake and can trigger either of the two options.
The Kill can be activated when landing three Scatter and an xSplit symbol in the Main Game. All the rules from the Search bonus also apply here, together with an xSplit Wild, present on reel 5.
