Cyrus the Virus Review
We are happy to present Cyrus the Virus a quirky little free slots experience from Yggdrasil that is available now to play on our site.
This game promises to have broad appeal with classic slots gameplay updated with modern functionality and presented in a very attractive visual design that means there should be something for everyone.
Like a great number of our other games Cyrus the Virus is available to play on either browsers or mobile and tablet devices. It is equally suited to gaming at home or on the go with no apparent compromise in gameplay functionality or appearance.
The graphical quality to this game is very good as is the looping soundtrack which does not grate or become irritating after an extended period of play. Clicking on a symbol on the reels will reveal its prize values which is good for streamlining gameplay.
Overall the game boasts a particularly clean and tidy interface which makes it easier to engage with as well as making it easier to keep track of key information such as bet size and balance. The reel movements and transitions are also particularly smooth and fluid with winning combinations accompanied by funny little animations.
Under the Microscope
As with most modern slot games the game is made up of five reels with three rows each arranged in a standard 5×3 configuration. There are ten fixed paylines that are always in play and a variable coin value that ranges from 0.01 to 4.00.
A wide range of prizes are awarded to lucky players who manage to find instances of three four and five of a kind adjacent matching symbols oriented from left to right on a payline.
In total there are eight symbols seven of which are regular sorts for prize matches with the remaining one being a special type of wild. In keeping with the theme all of the symbols themselves are unfriendly-looking anthropomorphised cartoon microscopic life.
The most valuable regular symbol is the dark blue virus with four eyes and an overbite. Finding five of these on a payline will award players with a maximum prize of 2000 coins for five.
Next up is the dark orange octopus-like virus which offers much smaller prizes of up to 400 coins.
Next is the star shaped orange virus offering maximum prizes of 300.
Finally way down at the other end of the scale is the goofy-looking light blue virus which offer a range of small prizes up to a maximum of only 100 coins. All wins are multiplied by the coin value.
The wild symbol is special and only appears on the middle reel. This can act as a substitute for any other symbol making it easier to find winning combinations. Additionally after a wild appears it then expands to cover the whole reel.
After that the other reels are spun again while the wilds in the middle reel are held. During these re-spins the lowest value symbol (the light blue virus) is removed from the reels and will not appear for the duration.
