About Cyrus the Virus Slots

Some slots are action packed and very involved, offering lots of bonuses and extras. Some slots a very simple and straightforward. Making sure that one isn’t too much and the other not enough isn’t easy, but Yggdrasil Gaming is very good at their simple games. Cyrus the Virus is one such game and as easy and simple as the gameplay is, the slot is hugely entertaining and very playable despite missing a free spin feature or a bonus game. Instead you get big wins and lots of fun.

Game in Action

Cyrus the Virus is undoubtedly one of Yggdrasil’s quirkiest slots. Germs are the main actors of this slot, which looks like the action is taking place inside a green cell. A red cell might have hit too close to home, mind you. So pastel green it is. The graphics are brilliant, though, which we have come to expect from Yggdrasil.

And the germs all have character. As soon as you might expect a winning combination, they’ll sport grouchy little faces that become downright scary when you do win. But fear not, antibodies (for that is what we believe they are) are ready to shoot out from either side of the screen and blast those germs away.

Just watching the action take place provides a lot of entertainment and is quite amusing. Watching the germs get blasted away really does not get boring.


As you might have guessed, this slot pays both ways. There are essentially five paylines from each side, giving you ten possible paylines in total.

The slot doesn’t have a bonus game or free spins and the main feature here is the expanding wild, which only shows up on the middle reel. Meet Cyrus the virus. He is the one bringing us the biggest wins in this slot and he’s a grouchy fella alright.

Thankfully it’s easier to catch this virus than the common cold and he even sticks around for a free re-spin, which could result in additional winning combination. We’ve had our biggest wins here when the germs were of the high-paying variety.

Other Slot Machines You Might Enjoy


You may find the theme for this slot somewhat ridiculous, but truly, it’s just quirky. It’s actually a lot of fun and if the antics of the germs don’t make you smile, you have a heart of stone. Cyrus the Virus may be very simple in gameplay, but that doesn’t detract from the entertainment it provides coming from an online slot machine.

The slot is surprisingly hard hitting, which means you need to pay attention to your budget. Especially since it’s easy to get sucked into this slot and keep watching the reel for more fun. We were lucky enough to rarely fall much below our starting budget and often hit big enough wins to climb back above it. Ending the game on a high note is easy enough, if you know when to stop. Otherwise those germs can leave you mightily sick.
