Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the East. As such it has generated enough interest to gain its own five reel video slot from Microgaming. The slot includes a number of features such as scatters, wilds, multipliers and free spins.

Kathmandu Slot Theme

Kathmandu has a traditional eastern feel to it, with a brown reel case etched with different patterns. The designers have included reel markers with bright colors which include blacked out numbers when that line is not in play.

Reel icons include temples, elephants, local produce, maps, bell towers and wilds. These animate when three or combine to form a win whilst the 10, J, Q, K and A symbols just flash.

The slot uses a standard background track which is designed to make it sound like a busy casino. There are various sound effects which play when key icons or events occur though. The bonus icon for example plays a note whenever one appears on the reels and the free spins feature includes a different music track all together.

Betting Options and More Functions

Kathmandu may be half way around the world but that doesn’t mean this slot is inaccessible to players. The 1 penny to $/£/€45 betting range ensures players have a number of different bets to choose from.

Players may switch to expert mode if they require automatic spins. You don’t have to use them but it’s nice to know they are there if you do want to.

Kathmandu Slot Features

The Wild icon will substitute for all other symbols except the scattered bell. Two or more of these icons arranged from left to right will also pay a prize with the largest being the slots 6,000 coin jackpot.

Three, four or five Temple Bell icons will award 15 free spins with a random multiplier up to 5x. These commence after you ask the reels to spin with a triumphant fanfare style tune playing in the background. During the free spins both the temple and wild will substitute for other icons to create more wins.

True gamblers can take the chance to double or quadruple their wins by pressing the gamble button. This presents a deck of cards of which you must guess whether the next card will be red or black to gain a two times multiplier. You can also guess the suit in a bid to quadruple your winnings.

Our Take on Kathmandu

Kathmandu as a place may be remote, but as a slot is very accessible and easy to use. We like the cultural theme, penny bets (and range beyond), features and feel the prizes on offer reflect positively too.

    I decided to update my review. Lately I have been playing this game a lot, mostly at Slotjoint casino when my balance gets low. I have had several wins over 300x bet now and thsi game often rescues me from going bust. An oldie but goodie for sure!

    My all time favourite, it pays out very well and is thrilling to pay especially if its hitting, im still yet to get 5 scatters, 5 wilds in freespins, not one gaming session will i not play this game unless the casino is not microgaming provided. But overall its an awesome game and i highly recommend it.

    I really like this slot from Microgaming software. I like the fact that I can play this game with really small bets like 9 cents per spin. In my opinion the payouts are good too, even with minimum bets. I also think this game is good when you have a bonus to wager, because of the payouts and bet limits. Not my favorite slot, but pretty decent one.

    Eventhough it is a bit past its use by date, it gives steady pays, especially for a nine liner, and the free spins with extra wilds can be quite profitable. Dont discount it.

    I have tried Kathamandu because I have read it's low variance and many praised it. It's boring and I think it should give out more free spins especially for a so called low variance slot. I am not convinced.

    I like and go this game when Im just about broke. It has pulled off so many saves for me . When I have a bank roll I have others I prefer to play . Ive been down to 2.00 a lot of times and its pulled me back to 20.00 balance many times . I'll bet .9 cents or .18 cents because it will drop 3 bells for free spins numerous times , just be patient but your bankroll will grow slowly . Very seldom has this not worked for me . Next time youre down to nothing on a microgaming site try this , then take your winnings someplace else . I find if I try to up my bet there it doesn't do well .
  • This game is often spoke about as being a great one for beating a wagering requirement - its considered quite low variance, despite the up to 5x multiplier in free spins and the nine paylines, and as such it doesnt have the jaw dropping volatility of say, Thunderstruck or Break Da Bank Again, Microgamings other popular nine line slots. If you fancy a change of pace - and style - I recommend giving Kathmandu a try.
