San Quentin is a slot title that was developed by No Limit City. The game borrows its inspiration from the infamous California state prison that uses the same name.
It looks like a controversial slot, especially when you take a look at its menacing inmates, shanks, and the frequent threats of shower-room rape that give it a chilling atmosphere.
But is there anything good that you can get from this title? Well, I took some time to play it, and here is my review:
San Quentin uses 5 reels with a default 243 ways to win. However, with the help of some of its features, the game can deliver as many as 46,656 ways.
Among its features are Split Wilds, Lockdown Spins, and Enhancer Cells.
The betting range of this slot is between $0.20 and $32 per spin. With its auto-play option, you can set it to automatically spin for up to 100 rounds.
It’s a slot with massive potential, and with the help of some of its features, you can win as much as $150,000 from just one spin.
Such high payouts are usually accompanied by very high volatility, and San Quentin has a highly brutal variance.
However, to cool things down, No Limit City has given it a decent RTP of 96.03%.
San Quentin may look frightening, but the slot offers some great features. One such feature is the Split Wild Symbols. These are random, and they can land anywhere on the reels.
Once they land on a reel, they go on to split the regular symbols into two. This will allow you an opportunity to enjoy more winning chances.
Then we have the Enhancer Cells, and these are the feature that will boost the game area.
The Enhancer Cells feature unblock any locked positions, and to trigger this feature, you will need to land 1-2 scatter symbols (comes in the image of a prison tower) on any part of the reels.
The triggered scatters will be transformed into wilds, and eventually, go on to increase the number of ways.
Lockdown Spins are the other features present here, and you will trigger them once you land 3+ bonus symbols.
In return, the slot will reward you with 1, 2, or 3 Jumping Wilds (comes in the image of a police badge) when you unlock the feature using 3, 4 or 5 scatters, respectively.
The atmosphere that No Limit City has opted to use on this title may be a little frightening, especially the encounter with the world’s most notorious inmates.
Remember, the slot borrows its inspiration from San Quentin, a prison that was established in 1852, and the only death row jail for male prisoners in California.
For the symbols, you get some not-so-friendly convicts that include Loco Luis, Beefy Dick, Henrich the 3rd, Biker Bill, and Crazy Joe Labrador.
The low-value symbols portray an equally unfriendly environment, and they include soap, handcuffs, shank, toilet paper, and a lighter.
From what I saw, it’s not a game for the fainthearted, and this applies to both the theme and the volatility.
However, if you can handle these two areas, then it is a great title with massive potential.
