This slot game from Microgaming attempts to recreate the feel and atmosphere of Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal and an exotic tourist destination. The high value symbols in the game are designed based on elements that vacationers will immediately connect to the city of Kathmandu, such as temples, pagodas, elephants, bell towers, maps, and even local produce such as beans. These high value symbols, that capture the local flavor, animate whenever there is a winning combination. By comparison, the lower value symbols, which are represented by the typical cards symbols of 10, J, Q, K and A, just flash. The temple symbol offers the highest reel payout, doling out 750 coins when five of them appear together.
The sound is designed to provide the ambience of a busy casino and there are various sound effects for playing different rounds and for certain symbols landing on the reel. An altogether different soundtrack is played in the background for winning combinations.
