One of the most popular themes in video slots is Ancient Egypt and its mythology. Microgaming has also developed a game inspired by this theme named Crocodopolis, probably thinking more at the crocodiles of the Nile. In this slot, they even turn the crocodile into an Egyptian god.
How to Play
Microgaming is a developer known for focusing on graphics and payouts, and Crocodopolis is not an exception from their rule. Because of these facts the game has become quite popular and can be found on many online casinos. Of course, online casinos can give you the option to play for free using the demo version, but they can also give you the opportunity to boost your payout by playing using real money. The demo version can prove to be very useful for anyone who would like to learn more about this slot and to get better at it, before moving on to the “big league”. If you want to get something more than experience, then you need to gamble a part of your available credit from your online casino account. Ancient Egyptian symbols can be found when spinning the reels like papyrus, hieroglyphics, ankh, ornamental scarab or a group of Egyptian gods. These are the higher value symbols, but the lower value symbols are 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
How to Win the Game
Crocodopolis has a pretty standard layout with 5 reels and 3 rows and it includes 25 pay lines. You can bet from as low as £0.02 and as high as £5, and the jackpot will get you 5000 coins. The interesting symbols or features to look for are:
- The wild symbol represented by the crocodile god replaces any missing symbol (except the scatter) and acts as a multiplier to double or triple your winnings depending on which reel it lands;
- The scatter symbol is the golden pyramid, which if you score it at least 3 times will activate the free spins feature (at least 12 spins);
- The gamble feature is a risky feature, but it allows you to predict the colour or the suit of the next drawn card. This feature can show during the free spins and can double or quadruple your winnings, or you can lose everything, so be careful how you use it.
Microgaming introduced the Gamble Feature to differentiate Crocodopolis from other Egyptian-themed video slots. So far the trick has paid off because the game is quite popular amongst slot fanatics.
