The Border Review
THE BORDER SLOT REVIEW
Freedom and riches await on the other side, but there is one thing in a way – the wall! The Border is a 6-reel Cluster Pays online slot from Nolimit City with a frontier theme. The game comes with xWays, xSplits, xBomb Wilds, xNudge Cluster Wilds, Boosted xRip, 2 Bonus Games – Mule Spins and Coyote Spins, and Buy Feature.
The Border Slot Symbol
Symbols on the reels include low-pay scorpions, snakes, vultures, and 5 high-pay characters. There are 2 Wild symbols in the game: the xBomb Wild and the xNudge Cluster Wild.
The Border Features
Wins are formed when 5 or more matching symbols connect horizontally and/or vertically anywhere on the grid. All winning symbols then disappear, and new symbols fill the empty positions.
When xWays symbols land on the reels, they turn into a regular paying symbol of size 2 or 4. This creates an offset that connects more symbols adjacent to each other. If more than one xWays land in view, they all reveal the same paying symbol.
xSplit symbols can only land on reels 2-6. It splits all symbols to the left, doubling the symbol size and converting itself into a Wild symbol. If multiple xSplits are on the same row, the symbols already split will get an xX indicator ranging up to x64. The Multiplier value reflects the symbol count on that reel.
The game has 2 Wild symbols – the xNudge Wild and the xBomb Wild.
- xNudge Cluster Wild – This is a Wild symbol that can nudge up and down if it is part of a winning cluster. The Cluster Wild always nudges towards winning symbols and increases the Win Multiplier by +1 for each symbol it nudges over. If the xNudge Cluster Wild has been split by an xSplit, it will start by adding its own Multiplier to the overall Win Multiplier. The nudge continues until no further consecutive symbols are part of a winning cluster.
- xBomb Wild – Substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter symbol. An exploding xBomb Wild removes adjacent symbols except for Scatter and Wild, increasing the Win Multiplier by 1 for the following cascade. If the xBomb gets split, it will increase the Win Multiplier for the next cascade with the amount it has been split into.
xCluster can only appear in the Bonus Game and may trigger when there are 2 or more unique symbol Clusters in the same cascade. If that happens, the Win Multiplier increases by +1 for each unique symbol cluster from the second cluster onwards. The Multiplier affects all current wins.
The Boosted xRip increases your base bet by +50% and guarantees a Scatter symbol on reel 1. When the Boosted xRip is activated, there are no payouts for the winnings below the base bet.
The Border slot has 2 different Bonus Modes – Mule Spins and Coyote Spins.
Landing 6 Scatter symbols trigger 10 Mule Spins. When xWays is part of cluster wins, cluster symbols on the same reel are infected before the xSplit and xNudge get into action. xWays revealing 2 or 4 symbols infect them to split into 2 or 4 symbols, respectively. Landing an additional Scatters upgrade the Bonus Mode to Coyote Spins and award 2 extra spins per Scatter symbol.
Landing 7 Scatter symbols trigger 12 Coyote Spins. Any additional Scatters will award 2 extra spins per Scatter symbol. xWays symbols infect cluster symbols, but unlike Mule Spins, all the cluster symbols will get infected. All xBombs add their Multiplier value to all symbols with an xX indicator. xBombs without a Multiplier will add +1. The Win Multiplier count does not reset during the Coyote Spins.
You can instantly trigger one of the Bonus Modes from the base game by pressing the yellow star button. There are 3 options to choose from:
- Mule Spins | 98x the bet. RTP is 96.32%.
- Coyote Spins | 914x the bet. RTP is 96.03%.
