Golden Cryptex Slot Review

Released March 2020

The Golden Cryptex game can be found at casinos offering Red Tiger software. Red Tiger is a relatively new software developer in the online gaming market, having only been in operation since 2014. Red Tiger focus primarily on slots games but do offer a few table games, albeit a very limited range of them. In compliance with UK gaming legislation, Red Tiger publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within their pay tables. As such, we can say that the House Edge for Golden Cryptex is 4.22%.

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.

Special Symbols

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.


Golden Cryptex might not look like much but it is offering something a little bit different from most other slots you will come across. The code cracking element of it is an unusual but engaging feature that gives an original way to trigger the Free Spins. There is no Wild and there really is just the one payline. Despite the unique nature of the slot it doesn’t look that special and I suspect it will become tiresome quite quickly. The house edge is a little higher than I would want it to be, but it might still be worth a look, but maybe not for very long.
