The Crypt Slot Features
Sitting in a dark sculpted frame, a 6x4 grid awards wins for matching at least 3 identical symbols on adjacent reels. All paying combinations must begin from the left side of the board and continue rightwards. Symbols' vertical position on the column is unimportant as all 4,096 ways are in play. The slot offers a cascading mechanism that removes every winning set from the view, drops down the remaining symbols, and populates the area with new instances. Regular payouts range from 0.1 to 0.75 times the bet for hits on low-value royal icons from 9 to Ace and from 0.2 to 2.5 times for scoring on premium zombie character portraits.
The symbol represented by the Grim Reaper may appear on reels 2 through 5. Upon landing, it will drop down the column, increase its multiplier by 1 for every move, and expand to cover the entire height once it reaches the bottom. Together with the xWays feature, the maximum multiplier can grow to x6.
Stone plates glowing in blue represent Mystery Symbols that transform into 2 or 3 matching icons, thus expanding the reels they land on. Multiple instances may increase the total number of winning ways to 46,656.
Landing 3 Scatters awards 10 free spins, plus 3 extra for every additional triggering instance. During the bonus, every fourth winning cascade transforms one of the character symbols into Wild for the remainder of the round and awards +2 spins. The top-paying icon starts with an x1 multiplier that increases by 1 for every win scored on it. Those wins do not contribute to turning other symbols Wild. Additionally, every free spin is guaranteed to land at least 1 xWays icon on the initial cascade.

Nolimit City never disappoints when it comes to delivering grim environments revolving around death. Sometimes, the scenes are more graphic and brutal, while others, like The Crypt, are more literal and perhaps somewhat satirical. Especially if we consider the unmistakable likeness of the top-paying symbols to famous personas from the music and entertainment industry. And it's not the first time the studio has utilized real-life people examples in their games, as we have seen in Whacked! and Rock Bottom. It undoubtedly adds a pinch of extra flavor to the entire setting. Otherwise, it's another high-end release from the limitless team, adorned with fantastic effects and dynamic animations shaping an outstanding online gaming experience.
Gameplay-wise, The Crypt comes across as slightly milder and more conventional than the studio's usual mind-bending productions. The base game offers tried and true features like xNudge and xWays, while the bonus round focuses on charging respective premium symbols' meters to convert them into Wilds. The entire composition heavily resembles Nolimit's old release - Dragon Tribe. An interesting choice that paradoxically gave the game another life by focusing on death.
