Crocodopolis is a game that comes from one of the biggest developers of slot machines, Microgaming, and as you will learn yourself, it’s a slot with an Egyptian theme where the hero appears to be a crocodile. Ancient Egypt has been used way too often as inspiration for slot machines though, so even with the new crocodile angle, I don’t feel like it was an inspired choice. The game looks OK enough, but that’s not unheard of among the dozens of slots with this theme. The slot has 5 reels, 25 lines and it will pay up to $5,000.
Betting & Jackpots
You may use 1 to 25 coins each round, and in exchange the slot will give you 1 to 25 active lines. The bet that you place on each line can go up to $1 at most, with the starting point being at $0.01. Expect maximum bets of $25.
The big prize in Crocodopolis will give the player 5,000 coins, and that could mean $5,000 cash. Should this prize come during free spins, the value will be at $10,000.
The Croc, which is the main character, is shown as a human with the head of a crocodile, and it acts as the wild of Crocodopolis. The appearance of this symbol on one of the active lines, while the rest of the line’s positions have the other symbols needed for a combo, will bring you wins which normally wouldn’t have been possible. Wilds will not replace scattered Pyramids though.
The Pyramid is the other big symbol of the game, a scatter which you can rely on to get free spins started, or at least to trigger a small cash prize. 2 or 3 such symbols will be needed to get you a prize of 2x or 5x the bet. You need all three possible scatters though, on the reels 2, 3 and 4, to get you the slot’s 12 free spins. The free spins have a 2x multiplier, applied to all wins obtained during this feature.
It’s a decent looking game, with a theme that is 99% about Ancient Egypt, and very little about the crocodile. Though you see it in one of the major symbols, the wild, the crocodile doesn’t feel very important to the players of this slot. You see a desert with camels in the background, and on the reels you get various Egyptian icons, along with some poker cards.
I think that the game isn’t special enough to warrant its appearance in the long line-up of slot machines that have the same theme. If you compare it with other Ancient Egypt titles, it will not be one of the slots from the top.
