As the famous Johnny Cash song goes, “I’m stuck in Folsom Prison” and “I know I can’t be free”, as Nolimit City’s reels keep us behind bars as it claims our Slot of the Week.
Released earlier this week, Folsom Prison, which can be seen as a sequel to the studio’s San Quentin xWays, is a 5×2, 16 to 46,664-payline video slot that incorporates a maximum win potential of up to x75,000 the bet.
“A prison that’s become immortal by one of the best albums of all time, was a big inspiration for this title,” claimed Per Lindheimer, Product Owner at Nolimit City.
“A San Quentin-light if you prefer, but it’s so much more than just a prequel. Don’t let the old school style make you too comfy, this is a violent place – and a volatile slot.”
Cash’s influence can be heard throughout this slot, which is a nice touch considering his renowned performance at California’s second oldest prison in 1968, as the music harnesses the era of blues rock, while morphing it to a punk/metal vibe that was evident in Nolimit’s Mental slot title.
Folsom Prison comes with a walk the line bonus, the chair feature and a buy bonus option.
Starting with the walk the line bonus, another hint to the Man in Black, landing three scatter symbols in the base game will trigger eight or more spins. Any scatter symbols affected by xSplits award one additional spin.
Meanwhile, landing four scatter symbols in the base game will trigger eight or more ‘the chair’ spins, also awarding an additional spin for each scatter symbol affected by xSplits.
Finally, players in permitted jurisdictions can buy their way straight into one of the different bonus features, at a cost ranging from x68 to x1,500 the base bet.
In the game, there are two wild symbols: the wild and cockroach nest. The wild can land on any reel except the first and will substitute for any paying symbol.
Meanwhile, cockroaches can land anywhere, but their nest will always spawn in the open positions on the three middle reels or transformed through scatter, opening any locked cell.
Landing two scatters in the base game unlocks the middle two rows on reel five. If only two scatters land, they will convert into one of the following: xWays, xSplit, wild or cockroach nest.
Moving onto xSplit symbols, these may only appear on the central two rows on reels two to five, and will split whatever they come in contact with, doubling the number of ways in the process.
Lastly, xWays can appear anywhere and will transform into a normal playing symbol and will also increase the number of win ways.
