Land of the Free Slot Review

Nolimit City are no strangers to controversy. While others shy away from it lest they overstep the mark, Nolimit City seemingly wracks their inventive (yet worryingly and hilariously warped) brains for a topic that others dare not touch. Their latest offering Land of the Free plunges headfirst into the heart of redneck America, presenting a theme that is both audacious and unapologetically bold.

Land of the Free explores the stereotype of incestry in rural America, a slot we never thought we’d see, even from the ones most likely to make it. Will Land of the Free see the light of day at casinos that carefully curate their catalogue to check if the game is suitable for their brand? Maybe not, but does Nolimit City care? No.

While Land of the Free’s focal point will be its fearless theme, underneath the hood undoubtedly lies innovative mechanics, incredible potential and intricate details.

Conveyor Belt

Below the main reel set is a Conveyor Belt that holds several special features that award the following.

  • Protein Powder Keg – Activates when a partially stacked symbol is on the same reel. Once active, it will convert the partially stacked symbol into a fully stacked symbol.
  • Bottles – A crate filled with 1 or 2 bottles. 1 Bottle will convert a random-paying symbol on the same reel into a Wild. The first of 2 bottles will convert a random symbol on the same reel into a Wild, and the second will split the Wild symbol into two parts.
  • Benzo Bear – A half-stacked Benzo Bear exists only in the base game, converting between 3 and 8 random symbols below water level into Wilds. A fully-stacked Benzo Bear is available in Submerged Spins and converts all symbols below water level into Wilds.
  • Mr Split – Mr Split can appear only on reel 5 if it’s unlocked and will split all symbols except Scatters on reels 1-5 according to its size, appearing partially or fully stacked in the base game. During Tsunami and Submerged Spins, Mr Split will appear fully stacked and split all symbols below water level.
  • Chainsaw – The Chainsaw will activate if Mr Split is present on unlocked reel 5, adding 1 extra split to the already split positions on the same reel it appears.
  • Rubber Ducks – If Rubber Ducks appear during Tsunami or Submerged Spins, they will award an additional +2 Free Spins per duck. Each Rubber Duck increases the water level by +1 row during Tsunami Spins.
