Kathmandu is not just a new Microgaming video pokie, but a real city in Nepal, far away from Australia and many of the other countries that many online casino players come from. In this deceptively feature-filled pokie machine game, players will virtually travel to a land of untold adventure while hoping to garner some real-life riches.

Kathmandu Basic Information

Kathmandu, which is available at Casino Classic, Golden Tiger Casino, Zodiac Casino, and other Microgaming casinos, has an Eastern feel to it. Map symbols signify the exploration part of the adventure, while temples and elephants give you a feel for the local area’s architecture and exotic animals. As this is a 9-payline game, it is not very complicated in terms of winning combinations. However, the special symbols animate when you get a win, while the familiar 10, J, Q, K, and A symbols flash.

Kathmandu Coin Values and Jackpots

Kathmandu will endear itself to both penny pinchers and high-rollers, as coin values can be set at 1 cent, 2 cents, 5 cents, 10 cents, 20 cents, and a maximum of 25 cents. Therefore, you can play every line at just 9 cents per spin or play the maximum number of coins at the highest value for $45 per spin.

In terms of jackpots, Kathmandu offers the possibility of some nice returns. The top regular jackpot in the game, in fact, is 6,000 coins, meaning you could win up to $30,000 in one fell swoop if you bet the maximum coin value and the highest number of coins per spin.
Kathmandu Jackpot Rules

For the highest regular jackpot in Kathmandu, you must get five of the jeweled chalice symbols on the same active payline. Of course, there are other ways to win many coins on one spin in Kathmandu, including through free spins and multipliers, which we will cover as we talk about special symbols below.

Kathmandu Special Symbols

The jeweled chalice symbol is not only the symbol you’ll be looking for in order to win the jackpot, but it is also Kathmandu’s wild symbol. It can replace other symbols (besides the scatter) to create winning combinations when you play.

The scatter bell is the scatter symbol, of course. If you get three or more of them, your scatter winnings are added to your regular winnings and multiplied by your bet. Furthermore, three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels activates the free spins feature, which have up to a 5x multiplier. Free spins can be re-triggered.

Not only is the jeweled chalice symbol wild during the regular game and free spins, but there is another symbol that is wild during free spins, too. That is the temple, which substitutes for all spins but the scatter during your free spins.

Kathmandu Final Thoughts

Kathmandu provides a simple, yet feature-filled take on the video pokie genre that new and experienced players are both sure to enjoy. Players from Australia and all over the world will certainly want to give this game a try so they can enjoy the fun theme and possibilities of nice winnings.
