How xWays Hoarder works
A far cry from traditional "Book of" slots or tumble slots with an ancient Greek or Nordic deity theme, welcome to xWays Hoarder.
Nolimit City takes you to a bunker in a post-apocalyptic zone in a world of comic book gore that only this provider has the secret to.
So it's the renowned online gaming provider Nolimit City that we have to thank for creating xWays Hoarder. This slot machine has been available at all online casinos offering this provider since July 6, 2021.
Its payout ratio (RTP) is about average at 96.2%. The volatility of xWays Hoarder is inevitably high, although not as high as most of the slots from this provider. Its winning potential is a maximum of 11,030 times the starting stake: this number corresponds to the total amount, in kilograms, that the average human defecates in a lifetime. You learn something new every day with Nolimit City!
The starting grid is classic, with 5 reels made up of 3 symbols, but we'll see later that the operation of this slot machine is anything but classic.
The xWays feature makes a comeback with a symbol that can appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 before a random symbol appears. When multiple xWays are present on a single spin, each xWays will display the same symbol. Each xWays displays the chosen symbol 2 or 4 times. The xWays on the same reel are stacked into one xWays but keep their number of ways each for a greater potential.
The xSplit Wild makes an appearance in xWays Hoarder. This symbol is reminiscent of San Quentin razors, but it can only appear in the base game. It can appear on reels 3, 4 and 5 in numbers of 1, 2 and 3 respectively. He splits the symbols to his left and on the same line into 2 to increase the number of ways. When a symbol is split multiple times, it gets a multiplier and when an xWays symbol is split, its multiplier is doubled for each split.
After splitting the other symbols, the xSplit Wild becomes a simple wild.
The different symbols in xWays Hoarder
In addition to the xSplit Wilds, xWays and Scatter, there are 10 symbols in xWays Hoarder.
They are divided into two categories:
The high value symbols are the characters. Also called premium, they pay drastically more, but rarely appear;
Low value symbols are objects. Also called common, they pay less, but appear more often.
Below are the potential payouts for a €1 bet.
The different connections in xWays Hoarder
There are many different ways to connect in xWays Hoarder. There are no predefined paylines in this slot. You have to line up identical symbols on adjacent reels. This way system is becoming more and more common and is quite simple to understand.
Connections are made from left to right with a minimum of 3 reels having an identical symbol. xWays Hoarder offers up to 95,760 different ways.
The image below can help you understand this connection system with a paying example and a no-connect example.
How the xWays Hoarder bonus works
Getting 3 or 4 Scatter symbols on a single pay spin on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 triggers the xWays Hoarder Bunker Raid Bonus with 7 or 10 free spins respectively. When a Scatter symbol is hit by a xSplit Wild, it becomes a Super Scatter.
If the Bunker Raid is not triggered, potential Super Scatters become xWays, but if the bonus is triggered, each Super Scatter that becomes xWays will be sticky and symbols positioned under the Super Scatter are turned into sticky xWays as well
Each xWays obtained during the bonus is sticky, offers 1 extra free spin and charges one square of an apocalypse counter. Every 3 xWays symbols, a counter is filled and a Hoarder level is earned. With each new Hoarder level reached, the character symbol and the associated item with the lowest value are removed from the grid.
When a total of 9 xWays are present on the grid, the maximum Hoarder level is reached, and it's time for the Wasteland Spins!
The 3 central reels of the grid are now completely filled and transformed into a huge xWays symbol. There are only 4 symbols left to appear on the grid: the 2 highest value character symbols and their associated item.
Our opinion on xWays Hoarder
Nolimit City does not seem to want to lower its standards and once again offers us a very high quality slot machine. The Fallout-like universe is incredibly well placed thanks to the quality graphics and excellent background music.
The usual features were already interesting, but their new version with xSplit Wilds and xWays from xWays Hoarder pushes the originality even further.
Although the maximum winning potential has been lowered from the provider's usual level, it is still relatively high at over 11,000 times the original stake. Nolimit City may have wanted to offer a more accessible jackpot, but one can imagine that the young company is capable of amputating the potential of its slot, simply because of the humour behind this number corresponding to the amount of faeces of an average human life.
In any case, xWays Hoarder remains an incredible slot that will appeal to the vast majority of online casino fans!
