Cyrus the Virus Slot

General Overview

On 27th May 2015 Yggdrasil Gaming released a new video slot playfully called Cyrus the Virus. The game has 10-paylines and 5 reels. However, lines pay in both direction: 5 from the left-hand side and 5 from the right. Once again it’s not only the visuals that the studio excels at but incredible soundtrack and sound effects that are just as entertaining in this game as many others, like the progressive Joker Millions. So what’s the game all about? Well it’s not about fruits, jokers, crystals, berries, robots or even Steampunk. The game is about bacteria and different kinds of viruses. Well, there are several more surprises awaiting the player so let’s move on to the rest of the review.

Features and Bets

The viruses and bacteria is made to look like it’s looked at from a microscope – lighten up from every direction. The overall atmosphere is obviously green, like the mucus from the cartoons. In addition to the very simple layout there are some kind of worms that watch the game from aside and shoot out when you trigger a combo to highlight lines.

Moving on we have a very familiar quick-access menu right below the reels and mucus. The buttons are also lit very beautifully and are therefore easy to see when you need them quickly. Coin values start from .01 and go up to 4 credits for a maximum stake of 40 credits. Lines, on the other hand, are fixed in Cyrus the Virus. Additional settings in the form of game speed, audio and auto-play are available as usual.

Symbols and Bonuses

There are 7 base symbols/bacteria/viruses in Cyrus the Virus. The 4 highest paying ones reward up to 200, 300, 400 and 2,000 coins for 5 in view. Next there’s the Wild that’s the scariest of them all. Ironically that’s the symbol you want to see most often as it substitutes for all symbols.  It has some limitations, though. For instance, it appears only on the middle reel. Fortunately, the fact that it can expand to cover the entire reel balances it off a bit. What’s more, every time you trigger a combo with the expanding wild you get a free respin! Free games will be awarded till no more combos are triggered in the round.

That’s it, there are no additional bonuses or features in Cyrus the Virus. You can try it out at one of the featured online casinos right now.
