When playing the Kathmandu slot game, Microgaming takes the player on a traveling adventure across the Himalaya Mountains to the Nepalese city of Kathmandu. The game’s entire motif is designed around the colors and tourist destinations one would expect to see when visiting this region of the world.
This video slot game is played with 5-reels and only 9 pay lines. The game’s betting range is $.01 per line up to a maximum bet of $.25 per line and up to 20 coins per bet. The makes the high-end maxes $.20 up to $45.00. The standard low-paying symbols are represented playing card numbers 10 through Ace, plus assorted berries from the region, a map of the region, a native elephant and local architecture.
The game’s base-game wild symbol is represented by a regional musical instrument that substitutes for all other symbols except the scatter symbol. During free spins, the wild symbol is represented by a Kathmandu temple that also substitutes for all other symbol except the scatter symbol. The scatter symbol is represented by a bell that holds the key to free spins.
If the player lands three or more scatter symbols, they earn 15 free spins with up to a 5X multiplier. If three or more scatters appear during free spin, additional free spins are awarded 15 more free spins up to an unlimited amount of them.
The only other bonus feature provided is a gambling game. After each winning spin, the player is presented with the opportunity to gamble his winnings from that particular spin. If they choose to invoke the gambling game, they can choose between a 50/50 option where they choose a color to try to match the dealers color, or the can choose a 4:1 option where they will be required to choose a card suit and match the dealers card. They can continue this process until they lose or choose to claim their winnings and return back to the base-game.
Verdict: As Microgaming 5-reel video slots go, Kathmandu would have be considered rather standard fare. For the most part, the video and audio features are unspectacular while the graphics are average at best. As far as game play is concern, the game lacks an interactive bonus feature that would certainly boost the game’s likability. Given the games limited risk, it might be worth playing for players who have but a small stake to invest and want to try a game with a traveling theme.
