+Cyrus the Virus makes cooties cute

The 1st of May 2015 Yggdrasil release their slot Cyrus the Virus, Germs is usually something you want to stay away from but Yggdrasil have a good job on making something that is often presumed as disgusting to appear cute, with this slot you might change your view on germs. In the 90s there was a movie called Con Air where Cyrus the Virus was one of the main characters, an Honorably discharged Army Ranger who protected his wife and killed a man in a barfight, this slot is not based upon that movie thought.

What is our summary of Cyrus the Virus Slot


Even though Cyrus the Virus is a couple of years old it’s still not out of date, Yggdrasil have always been ahead of the time and it really shows with this game. The overall feeling of the slot is good and the design is pleasant for the eyes, even though they are germs it has surprisingly cute and fun features.

You can win from both sides in this slot and the two first reels will finish first and then the two last ones, which means that the middle reel is still going for a little while, if you have two of the same symbols on any winning line you will see the small germs popping out of the sides on the lines that you have a chance to win and watch while the middle reel settles.

If you like slots with nice designs, intense music and with a lot of action we can recommend this slot. Cyrus the Virus is definitely one of our favorites from Yggdrasil and we hope that you will like it too.
