The Nepalese capital of Kathmandu holds a special place in the heart of travellers who make it to this mountain kingdom; narrow streets and temples offer adventure for tourists and it’s the starting point for treks into the Everest and Annapurna regions. Microgaming have designed an online slot with this compact capital in mind so read on to find out what we think of it.
Kathmandu plays out over five reels and nine paylines and it’s fair to say that it’s a fairly basic-looking game with the reels framed by mildly ornate decoration. Basic symbols are the standard 10, J, Q, K and A but the more valuable ones include a map of Nepal, goods at a market, a smart-looking elephant and the sun rising over a mountain view.
Bonus symbols are a spinning wheel wild, a temple wild and a big, ornate bell scatter which is the key to the main bonus feature. The extra wild may suggest that wins will be more frequent but that won’t be the case with only nine paylines.
A random multiplier of up to 5x will be applied to your winnings throughout this feature and the good news is that by landing three or more bells, the spins will be repeated.
If you feel the urge to gamble that most recent win you can do so by clicking the ‘Gamble’ button underneath the reels; it’s a playing card prediction game so choose the correct colour or suit to double or quadruple your win. There’s a limit of five correct picks but if you lose you’ll lose it all.
Kathmandu Online Slot Playing Tips
Use the gamble feature with care, wagering every win is the quick way to reduce your bankroll to nothing. Gamble occasionally and don’t try for too many correct picks in a row.
Is this game worth playing? Possibly but not for too long – there are far more creative and entertaining slots around. It feels slightly retro now but some players may like that.
