Many online video slots are inspired by exotic travels and adventure. After all, the lure of the temples and mountains of Nepal have attracted Western travelers for years, so it’s no wonder games developers do the same. Slot developer Microgaming are trying to tap into that sense of adventure with their 5 reel, 9 pay-line slot, Kathmandu.
Across the Reels…
Plush temples and beautiful mountains are present and correct on the reels, as are bellowing elephants, maps showing you the paths up the mountain, ancient bell towers and fruit from the local market. Exotic-looking 10-through-Ace symbols fill out the icons.
Win a 6,000 Coin Jackpot with Five Gold Wilds
The Wild gold artefact icon substitutes for all symbols on the reels other than the Scatter. However, five Wilds across the reels does pay out a juicy 6,000-coin jackpot, so it pays to hit.
Win 15 Free Spins and a Random Multiplier up to 5x
Three or more Temple Bell symbols, meanwhile, triggers a free spins round, with 15 spins and a random multiplier up to 5x up for grabs. During the free spins you’ll also receive another Wild on the reels – the Temple – which can help those winning combos a little more.
Unfortunately, that’s about your lot for bonus rounds, but free spins hounds still have plenty to enjoy here. In feel, Kathmandu is very similar to RTG’s Asian-themed slot, Tiger Treasures, with its 243-ways-to-win system and Asian symbols, while another Microgaming slot, the colorful travel-themed Adventure Palace slot, offers similar 9 pay-line thrills.
However, in terms of fast slots fun, Kathmandu is great for some low-variance fun. Nine reels of action isn’t going to set the world on fire, nor is having just the one bonus round, but a potential multiplier of 5x on your free spins wins is pretty sweet. Dig out the passport, strap on the walking boots, and get your travel guides ready for another trip into the East. Just don’t expect any wins that will pay for the trip.
