What if you were to find a discarded briefcase full of cash that was protected only by a combination lock? Or stumble across an elaborate puzzle that, if solved, would give you a life-changing fortune? We've all had the same basic idea run through our minds at some point. Unfortunately, there aren't many briefcases full of cash going around, but in the latest online slot from Netent, we can all experience a similar thrill. The game is called Codex of Fortune, and it's all about unlocking prizes that could be worth as much as 10,000 times your stake!
Codex of Fortune: Format and Gameplay
The Codes of Fortune game has five reels and four rows. The reels are presented within a copper scrolled frame, and to the left of them stands a large cryptex device. This is a vertical barrel with five numbered sections that can be turned. If you've watched The Da Vinci Code, you'll know that the cryptex is a kind of combination lock that contains a secret. Unlock the cryptex, and you'll gain access to the contents - in this case, the Codex of Fortune itself.
There are 40 pay lines in this slot. Symbols on the reels include elegantly decorated playing card ranks (J, Q, K, and A) and five ornate animal-shaped icons. A butterfly symbol serves as a wild, and a peacock serves as a scatter. The visuals are stylish, and a hauntingly mysterious soundtrack accompanies you as you play to reveal the Codex of Fortune secrets.
Fortune Wins and Fortune Re-Spins
The cryptex comes into play when you get any regular win, and two scatter symbols on the reels at the same time. This triggers both Fortune Wins and Fortune Re-Spins.
First, the Fortune Wins feature will activate the cryptex, and a jewel meter will appear. The number of winning symbols on the reels will help to fill this meter, and those symbols will then be held. Other symbols will spin with special reels in play that only contain blank spaces and the winning symbol. Get more of the same symbol, and the meter will continue to fill. Those extra symbols will then hold in place, and another respin will be given. You'll continue getting respins until no further winning symbols show up.
At the same time, every winning symbol you collect will continue to fill the jewel meter. When the meter is full, you will progress one step up the cryptex barrel. Should you get all the way to the top, the combination will unlock the device, and you'll win a special prize for doing so. There are seven levels of prizes that can be unlocked, and those range from 150 times your stake to 10,000 times your stake.
You start at Level 1. Should you get a Key symbol on the reels during Fortune Re-Spins, you will go up a level. When Fortune Re-Spins ends, you can either save the keys, in which case the level will revert to 1 before your prize is paid, or you can take the enhanced prizes thanks to the key or keys already obtained. If you save any keys, they will be available for use in the Free Spins feature.
Fortune Free Spins
Land three scatter symbols, and the Free Spins feature will be triggered. If you have any saved keys from the Fortune Re-Spins feature, you will be able to choose whether or not to use them. If you do, up to three keys will be used to level up the Fortune Wins feature, which will be active throughout Free Spins.
You will then spin a Free Spins Wheel to determine how many free spins you will get (7 to 13), how many extra keys you will get and which collectible symbol will be in play. The collectible symbols fill the Fortune Wins meter so that you will have the chance to unlock the cryptex, as in the main game.
Will You Win a Fortune?
Codex of Fortune is one of those games that makes you want to play for extended periods, just to see how far you can go. With seven levels to unlock and a top prize of 10,000 times your stake up for grabs, there's plenty to keep you interested for the long term.
