Golden Cryptex is a 5 reel slot and each reel is 3 symbols high. There are 3 paylines, but you only have one in play at a time, depending on which row the Golden Pointer is pointing.
Theme – There is a steam theme to this one, as if the reels have came straight out of the Industrial Revolution.
Code Symbol – Above the reels there is an additional reel, containing the code symbol. If you can match the middle row with the code symbol then you will trigger the Free Spins feature.
Wilds – There are no Wild symbols in this slot.
Second Chances – If you only land 3 or 4 of the code symbols on reel with the Golden Pointer then there is a random chance that there will be a respin, just including the symbols that do not match the code symbol, giving you another chance to trigger the Free Spins.
Golden Pointer Bonus – In the regular game, if there are more code symbols in the row above or below the middle row then there is a chance that the Golden Pointer will move to that row instead.
Golden Spins – If you can match your row with the code symbol you will be given 10 Free Spins. During the Free Spins a new code will appear. If you can crack it you will be awarded with 3 additional spins and an instant cash prize. Each time you crack a code during the Free Spins a new code will appear that awards bigger prizes, until you reach the highest paying code, which will then remain in play for the remainder of the spins.
