Crocodopolis is a 5-reel, max 25-pay line slot from NextGen Gaming. This is quite an interesting slot, and not only because – somehow – a crocodile has been elected leader of Ancient Egypt. We suppose it could have been worse – it could have been Nigel Farage. Anyhow, what makes this slot interesting is the unique 'Slide a Wild' feature. You can move a slider that sits above the reels to one of five positions. Depending on where you position the slider, a different 'wild feature' comes into play:
- Reel 1 – prize is doubled if it features a wild
- Reel 2 – prize is tripled if it features a wild
- Reel 3 – if a wild appears it expands to cover the entire reel
- Reel 4 – if a wild appears it expands to cover the entire reel and all prizes containing a wild are tripled
- Reel 5 – all symbols on the reel are replaced by wilds, and all prizes containing a wild are tripled
You can change the position of the sliding wild whenever you choose to. The rest of the reels are filled with symbols associated with Ancient Egypt, as well as playing card values from ten to ace.
You can choose the value of your bet from 0.02 all the way up to 4.00, and you can choose the number of lines you want in play from one to all twenty-five. Your total bet is these two values multiplied together. When you're ready to add some bite to your bankroll boosting, hit the green spin button. Crocs away!
Payout & bonus rounds
Payouts commence at 5x your bet-per-line for three nines or tens. The jackpot of 5,000x is obtained by landing five 'gods' symbols on one of your active pay lines.
The 'Croc' symbol acts as the wild symbol in this game, and substitutes for all other symbols aside from the pyramid symbol. Don't forget the sliding wild feature as mentioned above.
The pyramid symbol acts as the scatter symbol, and landing two anywhere wins you a payout. Land at least three and you win twelve free games in which all wins are doubled. You can win more free games while you are playing your initial freebies.
You can gamble all your wins in Crocodopolis. Hit 'Gamble' after a win and you be shown the back of a playing card. Guess the colour to double your win, or the suit to quadruple it. Get it wrong and you lose your prize. You may gamble any single win up to five times.
Crocodoplis is a fairly basic-looking slot that's not really thrilling enough to tempt you into a prolonged playing session. The 'Slide a Wild' feature is nice, but it's also a bit gimmicky, and doesn't bring that much new to the (pay) table. In short, a slot that's worth a few plays, but any playing session is more likely to be snappy than prolonged.
