ABOUT

Rally your men and break the enemy ranks in NoLimit City’s showpiece Legion X. Experience the thrill of combat in this Roman-inspired slot. Much like battle, the game is complex and chaotic but if you manage to find order in the disarray, you’ll be delighted by a structured and volatile unit with a massive max win.

Betting Options and Bonus Features

Legion X’s battle takes place on a 2-3-2-3-2 reel setup and features 72 betways to begin with. In order to win, you need to fill symbols within these paylines. A full payline reward ranges from 1x to 2.5x your stake. Although this is an unusually small reward, Nolimit city compensates for this with loads of features, including robust modifiers and 4 unique bonus games.

The main money maker of Legion X is the xNudge Wild. This is a symbol that has the same size as its given reel and as long as any part of it is in view, the symbol will nudge itself upwards/backwards to cover the reel. Besides acting as a substitute for other symbols, they also carry a multiplier value that is increased by +1 with each nudge. Landing several xNudge Wilds will result in them being added together in the global multiplier meter on the right hand side.

To enhance the base game further, Legion X features two additional supporting features on the 1st and 5th reel. These are:​

  • Infectious Wilds - a random low-value symbol is turned into wilds on the 3 middle reels whenever at least one infectious wild lands. In the event that you land two infectious wilds on the same spin, all low-value symbols on the middle three reels will be turned into wilds.
  • xWays - these expand and turn into 2 to 4 random symbols (except for wild and scatter), increasing the number of win ways. Landing 2 xWays symbols in the same spin will trigger the Infectious xWays. This will expand symbols of the same kind on the 3 middle reels to the size of the xWay symbols on reels 1 and 5.

The best part is that you can even combine both of these functions! This is achieved by landing one Infectious Wild and one xWay Symbol in the same spin. When that happens, both features work together and enhance the 3 middle reels simultaneously.

As mentioned before, the game features 4 different bonus games. All of the free spins bonus rounds are triggered differently:​

  • Legion X Spins - Land 3 Bonus symbols to unlock 8 free spins.
  • Legion X Equestris Spins - Land 3 bonus symbols and 2 xWays symbols to unlock 10 free spins and 2 sticky xWay symbols.
  • Legion X Fretensis Spins - Land 3 bonus symbols, and 2 Infectious Wilds to unlock 10 free spins and 2 sticky Infectious Wilds.
  • Legion X Gemina Spins - Land 3 bonus symbols, 1 Infectious Wild, and 1 xWays symbol to unlock 10 free spins, a sticky xWays symbol and a sticky Infectious Wild.

The main difference and benefit over the base game is that the global multiplier doesn’t reset, meaning you can string up extremely high wins of up to 31,000x your stake! Furthermore, all 4 bonus games are accessible through Nolimit City’s bonus buy option at a cost of 70x, 300x, 750x or 1,200x your bet.

Roshtein’s Take

NoLimit City slots have kind of become known for their gameplay complexity and Legion X fits that profile as well. Players often have a feeling that too many things are happening at once and they can’t follow the gameplay. Still, the rhythm of Legion X is not extremely confusing like in the Mental slot for example and the overall experience is more than satisfying.
