Whacked is a new casino slot from NoLimit City in which we get to experience a true gangster story.
So, you wanna be a gangsta? Welcome to the family. Bring your best pinstripe suit and step into the world of mobsters, dames and dough. Don't forget to pack ya' finest knuckle dusters. Just don't get mixed up in no funny business - or it'll be curtains for ya. That’s how NoLimit themselves introduce the game for us anway, and it’s definitely enough to get us pumped up. Theme-wise, it’s a game in true NoLimit fashion, but mechanically, we haven’t seen anything similar from the provider. Let’s take a closer look!
Whacked is a video slot from NoLimit City with 5 reels and 3 rows. It starts off with 243 payways, but the xWays feature can help you create up to 7776 ways to win. Players can choose between a Min.bet of 0.2 and a Max.bet of 400. The game has an RTP of 96.07%, placing it slightly above the industry average. As expected from a NoLimit game, Whacked is played at high volatility and can net you a max win of 11.912x the bet.
You’ll have to go through a lot of tests to join this mobster family, so the game’s mechanics will come in handy. The features are Scatter Symbol, Lock N Load, xWays, Whacked Spins, and Bonus Buy.
If you’ve ever roamed the streets of Los Santos in GTA V, you might be familiar with the scene. It’s not necessarily inspired by that, but the gas station and scrapyard in a desert landscape reminds us of the northern parts of the GTA map. Visually, it’s not NoLimit’s best or sharpest production, but we like how they’ve toned it down a bit. It makes it easier to follow, especially for new slot players, but is still interesting enough for us veterans.
Whacked can be played on all common mobile devices and desktops. A winning combination is created by landing 3 or more matching symbols on consecutive reels, starting from the leftmost reel.
The lower-paying symbols include ropes, knives, brass knuckles, pistols, and shotguns. A winning combination of 5 with one of these pays 0.5x-0.9x the bet. The higher-paying symbols consist of the various members of the mobster family. Five-of-a-kind with these pays 1x-2x the bet. xWays and Scatters can also land, activating some of the game’s different features, but more on that in a bit.
What is the max win in the slot Whacked?
You can win up to 11.912x the bet.
What features are available in the slot Whacked?
The features are Scatter Symbol, Lock N Load, xWays, Whacked Spins, and Bonus Buy.
Landing 3 Scatter symbols (cars) triggers the Whacked Spins feature.
Whenever you make a winning combination, bullets will appear beneath the reels. For each connection, one set of bullets is loaded into the gun. Once the cylinder is loaded with six bullets, the bullets will be randomly fired at higher-paying symbols. The symbols that are hit will be replaced by Wild symbols, which can substitute for all other paying symbols. If there’s not enough targets, unused bullets will be saved in the cylinder for later.
xWays symbols will expand to 2 or 4 symbols of the same type. If you connect with an xWays symbol, that reel will keep having the xWays feature active until there is no more wins or tumbles.
Whacked Spins is the Free Spins feature, and is activated by landing 3 Scatter symbols. You’ll start with 3 Spins, which are reset every time you land a new symbol. The feature is similar to that of Chaos Crew, where various coin values are collected beneath the reels. Coins hold a value times the base bet, so a coin with “10” will pay 10x the base bet. To help the prizes scale, the following features can also land:
During Whacked Spins, the xWays symbol will expand to reveal three coin values, ranging from 1 to 20 times the bet.
The xNudge symbol will expand and award three multipliers of 1x, 2x, or 3x - depending on were it lands. For each nudge the symbol makes, it awards +1x on its multiplier. The final xNudge value will multiply the collected value in the bottom of that reel. Thus, if you have 3x on the nudge, it will multiply the collected value with 3x three times.
A revolver can land, awarding a coin, xWays symbol, xNudge, or Russian Roulette.
When the Russian Roulette feature is triggered, the spins will reset to three, but will not be able to reset again. Instead of adding up the winning on each reel, the winnings will now me multiplied with each other instead.
The Whacked Spins feature can be bought at a cost of 88x the bet.
During the past few months, NoLimit has deviated from their trend of insane max wins with the release of Walk of Shame, Benji Killed in Vegas, Blood and Shadow, and Kiss my Chainsaw. Don’t get us wrong, they can all net you crazy wins of around 10000x the bet, but it’s still toned down from previous games. We became a bit worried that NoLimit had perhaps given up on one of the aspects that made them one of the top providers. But then came Disturbed, and balance was restored to the universe. However, we’re straight back to the “lower-end” of NoLimit max wins in Whacked.
The issue we’re facing when evaluating the game is that we keep comparing it to older NoLimit games and the incredible potential they provided. That’s not entirely fair, as if you put the game in a vacuum, it’s a solid production with decent, clean graphics and intriguing mechanics. Sure, the bonus game is not groundbreaking by any means, but it offers plenty of excitement and is not a complete ripoff. The NoLimit team have put their own touch in it, and it has resulted in a very enjoyable slot game.
Whacked by NoLimit sends you straight into the heat of action among a mobster family.
