Final Thoughts East Coast vs West Coast
East Coast vs West Coast has an RTP of 96.04% and Nolimit City list the volatility as Extreme which is the same as San Quentin, however this games max win is 30,618x your stake so the hit frequency is noticeably higher in this vs San Quentin during my test play which makes perfect sense as the top win in this game is 5 times smaller.
Upon loading the game I could instantly identify a remade version of Regulate by Warren G, I also noticed the backing tune in the West Coast spins sounds like Dr Dre’s 2001 hit Big Ego’s, this shows the level of detail to an old 1990’s Rap music fan and just added to the awesome gameplay, I honestly think Nolimit now have the best win sequence’s in any slot game to date, you just cant help dancing and singing along to it, well I couldn’t!
Would I play this again? You better believe it, this game is 90’s rap personified and the graphics and sounds along with the mechanics are sublime and no I’m not being paid by NoLimit City to write this!
As always, thanks for reading and if you fancy checking out the win sequence on this game click the link below, it’s the sheezy!
