event_note Published on 04 May 2017

Coming to you from the sick minds of Yggdrasil, Cyrus the Virus is the 5-reel, 3-row and 10 fixed paylines (5 left to right and 5 right to left) slot that offers to cough up all sorts of surprises as you play for the chance to win up to 20,000 coins in a single spin!

You'll be wanting to catch these viruses

The symbols in this slot consist of animated, nasty-looking viruses which are highly effective in presenting a cartoon-like and amusing look. The slot uses sickly colors of pastel greens and blues and there are 7 base germ icons that you will actually want to catch. There is a tune that plays in the background that is independent of reel spins and the sound effects are amusing and include the vocal sounds of germs as they form winning paylines.

Expanding wilds and free re-spin

While you will not find a lot of features in this slot, you will find 5 winning paylines left to right and right to left which is a useful one to have. Also available in this slot is the expanding wild feature. Here a wild appearing on the third reel expands to infect all spaces by replicating itself on the same reel. You will also win a free re-spin for a second chance at adding to your winnings. The slot does not contain any scatter symbols, bonus, free spins or gamble features.

Contagious slot!

The stakes in Cyrus the Virus slot range from €0.10 to €40 with coins ranging in value from €0.01 to €4. This slot has a theoretical return to player (RTP) of 96.3%. You can play both online and over your Android or iOS mobile device depending on your preference. Winning paylines are calculated by taking the coins in the paytable and multiplying them by the coin value. Winning paylines can earn you as much as 2,000 coins, but you can also win 500, 400, 300, 200, 150 or less. The slot is not rich in features, which means that it might be get a little stale quickly, but it is amusing. You also have the option of playing the game for free if you want to try it before deciding whether you want to play for money.
