Cyrus the Virus is an online slot game with a viral theme developed and released by Yggdrasil. This slot takes place in an unfortunate person’s body and your job is to destroy as many viruses as you can. This is achieved by landing three or more matching viruses on one of the 10 pay lines available.
You can also fight the viruses with the game’s special expanding wild symbol. Every time a group of viruses are destroyed, an amusing animation plays showing the cells get destroyed in alarming fashion.
Cyrus the Virus is a 5 reel, 10 pay line slot game. These 10 pay lines are essentially 5 pay lines that work form left to right as well as from right to left. There is no progressive jackpot on offer, but you do get a 2000x your line wager jackpot pay out from the blue virus reel symbols.
Cyrus the Virus Reel Symbols
It is unclear which of the virus icons that appear on the reels actually represent Cyrus in the title of this online slot, but they are a shady looking bunch. Cyrus the Virus features 7 deadly viruses. They each start awarding prizes when 3 matching viruses are lined up along one of the pay lines.
The four blue and green viruses are the lower value symbols. They have minimum payouts starting at 10 coins, all the way up to 20 coins. Their maximum payouts, triggered by 5 matching virus symbols range from 100 to 200 coins
The biggest rewards in Cyrus the Virus are facilitated by the Orange, Red and Dark blue viruses. The Orange virus will pay between 30 and 300 coins. The red virus is worth a maximum pay out of 400 coins. The scariest looking of the lot, the blue virus, has prizes ranging between 100 and 2000 coins, the highest payouts in the game.
Cyrus the Virus Slot Wager Limits
Cyrus the Virus has wagers on offer starting at 0.10 and being capped at 40 per spin. The reel pay outs combined with a 2000x your line wager jackpot means that this slot game has a theoretical Return To Player of 96.3%
Cyrus the Virus Expanding Wild Feature
The main feature of Cyrus the Virus is activated by the rainbow coloured wild symbol. This wild does not have any pay out value by itself, but it worked in conjunction with the standard reel symbols. If the wild is part of a potentially winning combination, it will take on the value of any symbol required to complete that combination.
The wild only appears on reel 3, but when it lands in view, it will grow into a rainbow coloured DNA strand and fill the entire reel, making it completely wild. After any winning combination is paid out, the reels will re-spin once, with the wild symbol remaining in place for the spin. This re-spin will occur at the same wager value that was active when the re-spin triggered.
