Golden Cryptex Slot (Red Tiger)

Golden Cryptex Slot (Red Tiger)This is one of the most unique slots that Red Tiger has developed lately.

The slot involves cryptography, and it’s not one of those everyday slots that you may be already used to.  

The developer has used a design that is purely based on the slot’s theme, alongside some classic symbols.

Here is my review of Golden Cryptex:

Game Set-Up

Red Tiger has used the usual 5x3 reels, a common set up on most modern slots. Golden Cryptex has only 3 active lines; it has some interesting features that keep gameplay fun.

Among these features are the Golden Pointer, a Second Chance, free spins, and the Cryptex Cash bonus among others.

Betting and Prizes

To place a wager, you just need to pick the amount that you want to use.  The minimum is $0.10, while the maximum is $60 per spin.

Golden Cryptex has the potential to reward the player with up to 1,525x the stake. This is not so bad considering that the slot is medium in volatility.

Red Tiger has not performed well when it comes to this slot’s RTP, which is 95.78%.

Golden Cryptex Slot Features

The set-up is quite fun, and the slot has its reels inside a cryptex, a device commonly used in cryptography.

To unlock the code, you just need to spin the reels, but you will need the help of a combo that has at least five symbols. This should appear in the middle row of the game.

The combo must also match with the symbols provided in the row that runs from the top. Aces will be available in the base game, while another symbol will represent the free spins.

To gain access to the free spins, you will need to form a combo using the five Ace symbols located on the middle row. If you manage this step, you will get10 Golden Spins.

Another way of getting into this feature is through the Second Chance bonus. This will require 3-4 symbols in place, which will enable the upcoming respins to deliver the rest.

Once in the free spins mode, you will use the lowest value symbol to form a combo and not the Ace.

Theme & Design

I find a lot of similarities to the steampunk style, which could be as a result of the intricate details found on the cryptex.

The cylinder plays host to the five reels, and each has three symbols.  Each of them will spin to reveal the symbols, while you work towards finding the code.

Besides the Royals, Golden Cryptex has other symbols like bells, Lucky 7s, horseshoes, and stars.

Although the theme of this slot may be a little unusual, the developer has done really well with the graphics.


Golden Cryptex is a great and entertaining game to play. I love the medium volatility which is a bit manageable, and the excellent layout of the slot.

However, being a modern game, it has a disappointing RTP, and the low payout potential does not help things much.
