Few online slot games choose to focus on gruesome and repellant subjects as their theme. Well  Cyrus the Virus is bucking the trend. This online slot game with its funky title is brought to you by software developer Yggdrasil, and – you got it – its theme is viruses… and microbes… spores… bacteria… and other horrifying organisms you can’t see with the naked eye. In this game’s defense, though, it comes with amazing quality graphics, and we would expect nothing less from this provider. The game takes place somewhere microscopic, clearly, with light green walls surrounding the invisible reels, which themselves offer a selection of every disease-causing microorganism you can come up with. They come in various shapes and colors, but you will have the paytable handy to check which are best to look out for.

Now, the layout in Cyrus the Virus is quite traditional, featuring a grid of 5 reels and 3 rows. These come with 5 active paylines that pay from left to right as well as from right to left. This means that you will essentially have a total of 10 active paylines to bet on, but they are also fixed so you won’t have the ability to regulate them. Then again, stakes here are well within reason. The minimum bet will only set you back some 10p per spin, and the maximum amount you can bet is £40 per single spin.

Special Features

Wild

The setup in Cyrus the Virus is simple. It only boasts one special feature and that revolves around the single special symbol in this game – the Wild. First off, let us point out that the Wild symbol can only land on the middle reel. In addition, it does not offer any payouts of its own, but it will be able to substitute for all of the other symbols without any exceptions. Thanks to this, the Wild can help complete winning sequences of symbols to boost your overall winnings.

Now for the special feature: whenever the Wild appears on the screen, it will expand to cover the entire middle reel. It’s a pretty odd sight, too, as you see it literally grow tentacles to merge all three positions together. What’s more, after the Wild has expanded it will trigger a respin, and during that respin it will remain on the reels to make for further wins.

Verdict

The structure in Cyrus the Virus may be very, very basic, but this is a pretty volatile game. So basic or not, you have the potential to pocket some mighty impressive prizes. With that in mind, though, this slot can also quickly eat away at your bankroll if you aren’t careful. All in all, it’s another great offering from Yggdrasil with a whacky theme and high quality graphics to support it.
