San Quentin xWays™ Overview

San Quentin xWays™ calls for the bravest inmates to test their wits, strength, and cunning — and offers never ending, suspenseful action for everyone.

San Quentin xWays™ Features

The name San Quentin itself sends shivers down the spine of even hardened criminals for a reason, as it houses people you wouldn’t want to meet in a dark alley at night. However, playing a dangerous game may potentially lead to exceptional rewards, and with this dangerous slot, that’s exactly the case.

This high volatility, fast-paced Nolimit City slot is packed with action that’s set in one of the most famous prisons in the USA. Players can trigger Lockdown Spins for a hardcore Bonus Round in addition to cool features like Jumping Wilds and an amazing 2,000x Bonus Buy feature. Live out a day in the shoes of a hardened criminal in the yard of the San Quentin prison!

Betting Rules

Players can wager in specific amounts starting from 0.2 to a maximum of 32 to join in the brutal fun at San Quentin xWays™.

San Quentin xWays™ slot gameplay

Life at the San Quentin xWays™ is dangerous but simple; so is the gameplay. The low-paying symbols are what you’d expect to find in a maximum-security prison, including makeshift shivs, bars of soap, toilet rolls, Zippo lighters, and handcuffs. On the other hand, the high-paying symbols are represented by five inmates — Loco Luis, Crazy Joe, Beefy Dick, Biker Bill, and Heinrich 3rd — who also serve as an integral part of the slot’s storyline.

San Quentin xWays™’s gritty story unfolds on a 5-reel, 243 pay way grid, kept behind concrete walls, guard towers, cameras, and barbed wire, offering potential wins of up to 150,000x the bet.

The dangerous action hits brutal levels during the Lockdown Spins. While it plays like the base game, the important difference is the Jumping Wilds and Multipliers on the convict symbol.

Bonus Buy feature

Players can purchase the Lockdown Spins feature via the Bonus Buy option without any need to spin the wheels and hope for a peaceful solution to the inevitable prison riot. Using the Bonus Buy feature leads to a direct Lockdown of the prison and results with guaranteed 3, 4, or 5 Bonus symbols in view at the cost of 100x, 400x, or 2,000x the bet.

Lockdown Spins, Jumping Wilds, and bonus features

Life at San Quentin offers a few extra features to make surviving behind bars even more dangerous. Landing 3, 4, or 5 Scatters triggers Lockdown Spins with 1, 2, or 3 initial Jumping Wilds.

However, you’ll need to keep an eye out for more when trying to break out of San Quentin. Unlocking Enhancer Cells awards high-rewarding symbols, Split Wilds can land at any time and split regular symbols on the reels, and Jumping Wilds can offer head-spinning in-built Multipliers!

Enhancer Cells

Enhancer Cells areas are at the reels' top and bottom. They are locked by default. However, when triggered by random, they can open one of the five high-rewarding symbols, including Razor Split, a Wild, or xWays® symbol

The xWays® symbols reveal the same standard paying characters, stacked 4-high. On the contrary, the Razor Split separates any standard symbols into two and does the split twice if they land on the top and bottom positions of the reels.

Bonus triggers

The Enhancer Cells unlock when you land one or two bonus symbols. This also turns the bonus symbols into Wild. Landing more than two bonus symbols will trigger the Lockdown Spins feature.

Lockdown Spins

Getting 3, 4, or 5 Bonus symbols on the reels triggers the Lockdown Spins. In parallel to the number of bonus symbols triggered, the player gets 1, 2, or 3 Jumping Wilds (1 for 3, 2 for 4, and 3 for 5 bonus symbols.) 

The Enhancer Cells are active during Lockdown Spins and can add extra jumping wilds to help create more wins. They can also give an additional spin by landing another bonus symbol, which will be rewarded at the start of the feature by revealing them in the Enhancer Cells along with an additional Multiplier awarded on a random inmate high-paying symbol.

Split and Jumping Wilds

Split Wilds can appear in any position in the Base Game. When this wild symbol lands, it splits all regular symbols on the reels, except itself. 

On each Lockdown Spin, the Jumping Wilds appear on a random standard reel. When a Jumping Wild and a Razor Split appear in the reel, they double the Multiplier, which stays throughout the feature.

Our San Quentin xWays™ Tips

While, as with any video slots and game shows on our site, the wins in San Quentin xWays™ aren’t guaranteed, it still is packed with awesome, hardcore features to keep players on their toes with each spin. Players should keep an eye on the Enhancer Cells and Split Wilds to maximise their earning potential. Lockdown Spins is where this slot shines, and while they may be difficult to land, players can always leverage the Bonus Buy feature to jump straight into the Lockdown Spins brutal action.
