Infectious 5 xWays Introduction 

The next xWays slot from Nolimit City takes us to the realm of comic book action, but this time around the developer puts a darker twist to the superpowered proceedings. Meet Havoc, Mind Flayer, Torch, Misery and Toxicity, proof of the adage that you either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. These 5 characters are the stars of Infectious 5 xWays, a slot based around a version of the xWays feature best described as, well, infectious. As you spin the reels you will notice xWays symbols that transform into 2 or 3 of the same paying symbol, expanding the number of rows on the reel in the process. However, land a wild together with an xWays symbol for Infectious xWays, as the revealed xWays symbol "infects" all other symbols of the same type, causing them to expand to the same size! Infectious xWays are essentially guaranteed during one of the two free spins modes on offer, Toxic Hazard. This has 1 to 5 random wilds are placed in the middle reels on each spin. The other round, Lock n' Load, has any wilds landed stick on the reels for the duration, also guaranteeing a chance at the Infectious xWays. And this is not all the game has to offer, so we should start making our way into Infectious 5 xWays and find out what it is all about! 

Infectious 5 xWays Game Features 

Infectious 5 xWays is a 5-reel slot with an initial 4 rows, allowing for a default of 1,024 paylines. However the number of rows can be increased through the titular xWays feature. When landed, xWays symbols will transform into 2-3 paying symbols of the same type, expanding the number of rows on the reel in the process. As such, rows can have a theoretical maximum of 8 rows, allowing for up to 110,592 paylines. Speaking of paylines, these are formed by landing 3 or more matching symbols on adjacent reels, starting from reel 1 and moving from left to right. Making these paylines is a selection of 10 paying symbols. These are divided in the 5 high-paying superhero characters, Mind Flayer, Torch, Misery, Toxicity and Havoc, and the low-paying A, K, Q, J and 10 card royals. 

The green "W" is the wild, able to substitute for all symbols except xWays and the scatters. Landing an xWays symbol together with a wild triggers the Infecious xWays feature. This has the revealed xWays symbol "infect" all symbols of the same type on the reels, causing them to expand to the same size. As for the scatters, these are the toxic chemical canisters. Land 3 or more of these to activate the Infectious Spins, where you choose between either the Toxic Hazard or Lock n' Load modes. Land 5 scatters for Mayhem Mode, with a choice of upgraded versions of the two Infectious Spins modes.
