Aurum Codex Slot (Red Tiger)
Aurum Codex is an interesting game from Red Tiger. The slot borrows part of its inspiration from alchemists of the Middle Ages, and this gives it a quality close to the wizard.
Red Tiger is known for high-end graphics, and this is what they have used and blended with interesting features to create Aurum Codex.
Here is my unbiased review of this title:
Aurum Codex uses the usual 5 reels hosting 20 pay lines. As for the features, the slot uses the wild symbols, scatters, free spins, and Alchemy and Golden variants.
Betting and Prizes
With modern games, it is quite easy to place wagers, and this slot allows bets ranging from $0.10 to $20 per spin.
The rewards are just average, and Aurum Codex offers as much as 4,131x the stake per line. Although this amount may look decent, the slot’s volatility is unusually high, which makes it an extremely risky game to play.
Unfortunately, the provided RTP of 95.77% does not match its high volatility.
Aurum Codex Slot Features
To form wins, you will need matching symbols that must land 3+ times on active lines. This should be left to right, and some help from the wilds may come your way.
The feature symbols (Alchemy Wilds) will appear on the 1st and 5th reels. The most special thing about them is that they remain locked in their position. They will then stick around to give you an additional spin.
Golden Wilds will come once the Alchemy Wilds show up on both the 1st and the 5th reels. This must happen within the same row.
The symbols appearing on reels 2-4, and within the same row, will be transformed into Golden Wilds. On their own, these can pay15x the stake, and you can also use them as substitutes.
Last but not least is the free spins feature, and with it, you can get as much as 10 rounds. You will get the free spins via the scatter, and this symbol must land on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th reels all at the same time.
In return, you will be rewarded with between 5 and 10 free spins.
Theme & Design
Aurum Codex delivers an alchemy/wizard kind of theme, and this one introduces us to a laboratory. The appearance is that of a Middle Ages lab. It is like a library where an alchemist or a wizard resides.
In the background, you will notice images of books on shelves, jars, hourglasses, and vials.
I love the design of the reels, and on them, there are icons of Royals, spellbook wilds, keys, scatters, scales, bird skulls, and scrolls.
Aurum Codex is a simple yet fun game from Red Tiger. It’s an easy game, even for beginners, but you also need to know that it has unusually high volatility that makes it highly risky for players not well versed with this.
Overall, it’s a decent game, but the developer should have given it a much higher RTP, plus decent payouts to go hand in hand with its high volatility.
