Kathmandu is a release from Microgaming, the kind of slot that doesn’t go all the way with its layout, offering a limited number of features. It doesn’t have the best design ever either, despite being feature rich and giving you an interesting theme. The theme is inspired by Nepal’s capital, Kathmandu, and it shows off some of the exotic architecture of the region. As features, you will discover the scatter bell, the free spins with their 5x multipliers and the wild symbol. You get 9 lines for the 5 reels, with the top prizes getting to $30,000.
Betting and Prizes
Given the number of lines, if you want to have them all active you will be required to use at least 9 coins each round. It can go a lot higher than that though, up to 20 coins being allowed for one line. That means having up to 180 coins in a bet, and since denominations reach $0.25, the maximum bet would be at $45.
Kathmandu game will promise a decent payout, of 6,000x, which can translate into a 120,000 coins jackpot, worth up to $30,000.
Kathmandu Slot Features
Among the features, you will find two types of wilds and a scatter. The first type of wild is the one that can appear in the base game as well, the image being that of some kind of device, with WILD written on the side. You can use this symbol to form a new combination just with its own symbols, getting paid very well this way, or you can use its substitution ability, which doesn’t apply to the scatter.
The Bell is the scatter symbol, and you will get its help when it comes to triggering free spins, or to win prizes. The cash prizes start at the value of the bet, and can go up to 100 times that.
To trigger free spins, you need 3 to 5 of these scattered Bells, in any position on the five reels. You would get 15 free spins from these symbols, while wins would be multiplied by up to 5x. You get a second wild symbol to use during free spins, which will replace all other symbols, with the exception of scatters. They will also form their own combos, paying up to 750x.
Theme & Design
The design of Kathmandu slot is charming in its own way, using some images which are typical for that city or country, a different civilization that it gives you access to. It’s also the kind of game that will use some very basic poker cards, which will not help the design.
Kathmandu is a game that I’d recommend you try out mostly for the features and the choice of theme. There are plenty of good sides to it, for you to consider.
