Tombstone RIP Slot
Nolimit City is no strangers to hardcore online slots, creating some of the most difficult games in recent years. The high level of volatility has become synonymous with the provider and fans’ hopes were pretty high with the announcement of Tombstone RIP.
But does this dark Western adventure manage to hit those high expectations? Has Nolimit City taken things to the next level or has the developer finally gone soft? Keep on reading our full review below to find out!
Tombstone RIP Features
As with all Nolimit City slots, Tombstone RIP sports layers upon layers of features, with each functionality building on top of another to create a comprehensively deep experience. You’ll find a host of base game features that can be matched with a variety of bonuses that take gameplay to a whole new level.
A running feature with Nolimit City releases, the xNudge Wilds land in stacks on reels 2 – 4 and will always nudge themselves into full visibility on the reels. With every nudge that occurs, they increase the current spin’s win multiplier by 1.
Another version of the wild symbol, the Splitting Wild symbol can land on reels 2 – 4, splitting all of its respective reel’s symbols which in turn doubles them and their values.
xSplit Wilds also show up, landing on reel 5 and cutting all the symbols on its respective row in various ways. Even split symbols can get split once again, allowing for rows to change in shape, form and factor. If an xNudge Wild is split, its multiplier is also doubled.
The titular xRIP is one of those features that really takes the game difficulty to a whole new level. Whenever a winning combination is made in both the base game and free spins, if the win is worth less than your bet, no payout is made. It’s an unforgiving mechanic that can really beat you while you’re down and enforces the bleak atmosphere that engulfs Tombstone RIP.
Scatter symbols come in two iterations, each connected to the free spins bonuses in Tombstone RIP. The Hang’em High scatters land on reels 2 – 4 and 3 of these will trigger 8 Hang’em High Free Spins. Alternatively, landing 2 of these symbols will convert them to reel split wilds.
Players may also land Boothill scatters. If 3 Hang’em High scatters land together with 1 Boothill scatter, 10 Boothill Free Spins are triggered. If the Boothill scatter lands without the required Hang’em High scatters, it is then converted to a Cowboy symbol. The Cowboy symbol is wild on all reels and comes with a random multiplier of up to x999.
Tombstone RIP’s Bonus Buy option. Free Spins bonuses can both be purchased, although they do come at steep prices. The Hang’em High bonus goes for 70x your current bet, while the Boothill bonus is available for 3,000x your current bet. RTP figures also increase to 96.47% and 97.03% respectively.
Tombstone RIP Free Spins and Bonus
As specified above, Tombstone RIP has two distinct free spins bonus, each bringing various rewards and opportunities. The first, Hang’em High Free Spins starts players off with 8 bonus spins. During the bonus’ duration, a multiplier is active, and is increased by Wilds, Splitting Wilds, xNudge and xSplit symbols. The multiplier remains active throughout, resetting only once the bonus is done. If a Boothill scatter lands during play, 2 additional free spins are awarded and the bonus is upgraded to Boothill Free Spins.
Boothill Free Spins is Tombstone RIP’s top bonus. These super free spins are incredibly difficult to trigger but they’re your only chance of getting anywhere near the 300,000x maximum win cap. The win multiplier operates just like in Hang’em High. On every spin, the Cowboy symbol lands on reel 5, turning all same instances of the symbol to wild. A random multiplier of up to x999, is also dished out on every spin and applied to the cowboy symbol. This is then added to the overall multiplier.
Tombstone RIP Theme and Symbols
We all know how dark and bleak Nolimit City likes its games, but somehow, they always manage to surprise us. Tombstone RIP is gloomy and gory, with an air of despair that matches the slot’s high level of difficulty. It’s a high-quality presentation, but one which many people might shy away from, especially given the very violent visuals that are present.
The player assumes the role of a bounty hunter and as such, hunts down their targets and brings them to ‘justice’. You’ll see all this process through, with plenty of executions and hangings taking place on-screen. This element may put off some players.
Tombstone RIP RTP & Volatility
