There’s a killer on the loose in Nolimit City’s latest chilling slot release, Serial, which introduces players to the bloodthirsty Bodycam Butcher.
Serial is a 5×3 reel slot with 243 ways to win and a maximum win of up to x74,800 the player’s bet.
96.07 per cent
Low value symbols in this game are depicted as crime scene evidence, with hard-hats, bloody shovels, gloves, chains and hooks. If the right amount of winning combinations land at once, these symbols can offer between x0.1 and x0.9 the player’s bet.
Bones, a vulnerable female and a doctor represent the medium value symbols, offering between x0.3 and x2.5 the player’s preferred stake.
High value symbols come in the form of a special agent and the murdering Bodycam Butcher himself. These symbols can offer between x0.4 and x5, depending on the amount of paying combinations that land in one go.
Jerry can wilds are able to land on the reels, substituting for all symbols other than the missing poster scatter.
Finally, the scatter feature is depicted as a missing victim poster. These scatters can only land on reels two, three and four and landing three of these on the same spin will trigger the search free spins game mode.
These scatters can appear showcasing numbers, which will represent the number of spins awarded in the search bonus game mode.
Although this is a 5×3 reel slot, there are two horizontal enhancement reels above and below the board. With every successful spin, a respin is granted, opening the enhanced reels for the first column on the board.
This respin sees all symbols that formed the triggering win stay sticky on the reel-set to increase the respin’s payout potential.
If another win occurs after this enhanced respin, another will be granted with the next set of enhanced horizontal reels unlocked. While these new enhanced cells will usually depict a low, medium or high value symbol, they can also reveal special features to increase the game’s win potential.
One feature the enhanced reels can reveal is the xWays bonus. This causes two to four identical paying symbols to land into play. If two xWays symbols land on multiplier unlocked enhanced reel cells, they will all reveal the same symbol
Nudged wilds are another feature that can be awarded, landing a stacked wild onto the screen that will nudge to fill out an entire reel. Each space it nudges over will increase a wild multiplier by a value of x1, which will be applied to any subsequent wins.
On the fifth reel, xSplit wild symbols can land into play, appearing as a x2 multiplier wild. This splits all symbols on its row into two, including scatters, xWays and Nudging wild symbols.
Infectious xWays symbols can drop into play on the fifth reel via the enhanced horizontal reels. Like xWays symbols, it will place identical symbols across the board, however this special variant causes other present symbols that match that symbol to expand and increase the number of win ways.
Players can activate the xBet feature, increasing their bet size by 20 per cent to guarantee that a scatter will land on the second reel.
When two scatters land on the reels, they will turn into xWays symbols, yet three scatters will trigger the search feature.
During this feature, the numbers showcased by the missing posters will award a respective amount of free spins as the second, third and fourth reels unlock their horizontal enhancement reel.
If an xSplit symbol lands on the reels with three scatters present, the kill game mode is triggered. This is similar to the search feature, only the xSplit symbol will become a jumping wild on the fifth reel.
Additionally, players can buy the search and kill features for the price of a significantly increased bet.
During all of these game modes, the maximum payout is x18,700. However, if this payout is achieved then players gain a chance of doubling the payout up to four times with the game’s xBizarre feature.
In this game mode, players take a 50/50 chance to double their winnings. If they lose any of these gambles, they will not miss out on their original payout, and each gamble that is won will secure the increased bet amount before the next payout.
WHAT THEY SAY
Per Lindheimer, Product owner at Nolimit City said: ”To put it lightly, Serial is not for the faint of heart. This is the disgusting world of chainsaw murders, body bags, corpses, and first-person victim hunting.
“From the artistic direction to the brutal volatility and game
mechanics, we truly went all out with this one, and have raised that bar to where Nolimit City can go. Welcome, to Serial.”
