Cyrus the Virus Slot
You may recognize the name “Cyrus the Virus” from old movies starring Nicholas Cage, John Cusack and John Malkovich, but Cyrus the Virus Slot is something different. This 5-reel video slot has been developed by Yggdrasil and finds fun, humor and riches in the maleficent viruses on a microscopic level, with a number of fantastic features.
Cyrus the Virus slot features a standard 5-reels and 3-rows, but what makes this slot special is that you can win both ways. This feature is played up by little organisms that poke their head out of holes (representing paylines) on the left and right sides of the slot when the potential for a win exists. If you hit that win, the little creatures zing across the screen to show you your win! Although the living green walls of the slot casing may look hideous, they create a perfect backdrop for a slot based on viruses. Disgusting? Maybe. Still fun? Absolutely!
The icons of the Cyrus the Virus slot are designed to represent virus cells. The values of these different types of symbols generally increase as the viruses get larger and more repulsive. The biggest viruses sport big teeth and tentacles and the dark blue symbol will give a win of no less than 2000 coins on a full pay line. The smallest viruses of the Cyrus the Virus slot actually look quite harmless with lighter colors and a much friendlier smile. The smallest cell in the pay table is the light blue one, which gives a prize of only 80 coins per pay line. Face your fears with the big viruses on a winning payline and you’ll get rewarded for your bravery.
Win both Ways
As mentioned previously, the Cyrus the Virus slot has a green casing that resembles the insides of a living organism. In both the left and right sides of this casing you can find five tiny holes which duplicate as the paylines. There are always five active lines, which go both from the left to right and from the right to left. This means that the Cyrus the Virus slot has the prized “win both ways” feature giving you ten active paylines in the game. Watch those little holes in the sides of the slot casing because they hide little viruses that are waiting for their chance to wreak havoc on the game. When you are about to make a winning combination, they will stick out their heads out of the holes. If you hit a win, they will shoot out of their hole and highlight your winning combination and prize. All wins in the Cyrus the Virus slot are collected by attacking the viruses on the active pay lines.
Extended Wild with Re-spin feature
The Cyrus the Virus slot only has one really remarkable game feature. This is the expanding wild that when triggered will cover an entire reel. In other words you will find three wilds will cover all three spots on the appropriate reel. It’s important to note that the expanding wild is only found on reel 3. One of the great things aside from improving your chances for a big win with Expanding Wilds is that when you hit this feature, you’ll earn an addition re-spin for free!
