Evolution Gaming Acquires Nolimit City

This week Evolution Gaming has reaffirmed its move into the slot world by acquiring Nolimit City for €340m. It follows the iGaming giants' 2020 acquisition of NetEnt. Evolution’s Chief Executive, Martin Carlesund said that the deal was motivated by the high-quality and distinctive elements of Nolimit productions.

“It’s a very specific niche content. It’s graphically rich, it’s very fascinating and it has good mechanics attached to it. Maybe more for the advanced player, but anyone playing Nolimit slots is attracted by that. They know they’re playing Nolimit – it’s very obvious.”

Silent Hill™ Return: Konami, RTP: N/A.

If you’re into horror, then you’ve probably heard of Silent Hill, if not played it before. First released in 1999, it’s a media franchise produced as a series of survival horror video games and was later also made into a film, popularizing it further. 

The slot is based on the never-ending streets of Silent Hill and is filled with haunting characters and jackpots y around every corner. Hit up matching logo symbols in the fog, blue (to win a cash credit prize or trigger a bonus game) or a red fog (for the chance of a jackpot or the bonus game), but keep your wits sharp as danger lurks and this slot is a recipe for chills, thrills, and sheer excitement.
