Aurum Codex is a brand-new online video slot game released by Red Tiger Gaming in August 2020. It’s a high volatility game with industry-leading graphics centred around a theme of alchemy, the art of turning base metals into gold. Red Tiger Gaming invites you to take a spin for your chance to transform what’s in your wallet into bigger riches.
The game is played across five reels with 20 pay lines. It’s an accessible game with a sensible betting range that starts at £0.10 per spin and reaches a maximum of £20 per spin. The maximum jackpot is an impressive 4131x your stake which will be a nice reward for anyone lucky enough to trigger it. The game has lots of exciting features, including wild symbols and free spins symbols that will contribute to boosting your winnings throughout the game.
Graphics and Theme
As we mentioned above, the game is centred around the theme of alchemy which was at its most popular in the 18th century. The animated graphics in Aurum Codex show lots of objects that would have been used at that time in the pursuit of turning everything into gold. Behind the reels, wooden bookshelves are stacked with scientific instruments and books containing arcane knowledge in a grand room. The reels themselves are bordered with gold, and the title sits proudly on top of the reels written on an old scroll.
The soundtrack to the game is relaxing, but at the same time, it builds suspense. It sounds a little bit like something that would be played during a Game of Thrones episode, only more toned down. When you take your turn, the reels spin with a satisfying flicker, and when a winning combo lands, a magical celebration noise will fill your ears before you hear your winnings being counted.
Aurum Codex symbols
The low paying symbols in the game are the playing card symbols 10, J, Q, K, and A. The high paying symbols are a key, a feather & scroll, a candle & skull, and golden weighing scales. The golden weighing scale is the highest paying symbol paying out a maximum of 15x your stake.
The open book is the wild symbol of the game, and there is also a free spins symbol.
Alchemy wild symbols
Wild symbols can only appear on the first and fifth reel in Aurum Codex. However, they have several quirks to make them more exciting and more beneficial to your purse.
Sticky Wilds – If you land wild symbols on the first and fifth reels simultaneously, they become locked into position and stick around for another spin. This gives them an additional chance to make winning combinations.
Golden Wilds – are activated when you land wild symbols on the first and fifth reels while also on the same row. When this happens, all of the symbols between the two wilds will transform into golden wilds. This will award you with a minimum of 15x your stake, plus the prizes from any other winning combinations that the wilds are able to make.
Aurum Codex free spins
To trigger the free spins, you will need to land three free spins symbols on reels two, three and four simultaneously. If you do, you will be awarded ten free spins with the chance to trigger between five-10 more during the free spins game randomly.
If you land any wilds during the free spins round, they will become sticky for the duration of the game. This can add up to some colossal wins, especially if you land wilds on the first one or two spins.
Game How to Play
The first thing you’ll need to do is select your betting value which can be between £0.10 and £20 per spin. From there, you can hit spin manually or take advantage of the auto spin feature that will do all of the hard work for you. Then, keep an eye out for combinations of three or more matching symbols landing on your screen across the 5×3 set of reels. The biggest winning combinations come from the wild symbols and weighing scales which pay out 15x your stake for five of a kind. However, the real money in this game is made from unlocking the bonus wild features during the free spins round.
