Aurum Codex Pokie Machine
Aurum is the Latin word for gold and a codex is an old reference manual consisting of parchments bound together. The online pokie is based on the theme of alchemy, which is the medieval practice of trying to convert base metal into gold. It strikes a resonance with online pokie players who aim to convert their modest deposits into big payouts. As you spin the reels you will see a succession of normal symbols turn to golden wilds.
Red Tiger Gaming is a relatively new games supplier to New Zealand online casinos, having been established in 2014. It combines complex mathematical calculations with latest graphics technology thus creating online pokies with fascinating gaming features and visual appeal, as in Aurum Codex.

Online Pokie Structure
Aurum Codex online pokie has 5 reels and 3 rows with 20 fixed paylines. The total bet range varies from 0.20 credits to 20 credits. This may disappoint the high roller players and to them we say that the online pokie has high volatility and you can expect big payouts even with small bets. You select the total bet directly from the given options in this range by clicking the Stake button below the reels.
Three or more like symbols appearing on defined paylines from left to right starting from the first reel result in wins. Wild symbols pay for only five-of-a-kind combinations. The payout table displays multiplier values for each win combination, which are applied to the line bet for the spin. The line bet is calculated as the total bet divided by 20. The maximum payout is 300 times the line bet for landing five wild symbols on a payline. The lowest payout is 4 times the line bet for three 10 symbols. The RTP has been given as 95.77% by Red Tiger Gaming.
Theme, Symbols and Graphics
The reels are set in a dark dingy alchemist’s laboratory with books and bottles on the shelf and are supported by ornate golden borders. The background music borders on the soulful. The high paying symbols have been taken from the theme and include the alchemist’s balance, skull of a bird, parchment and quill and key. The low paying symbols are ornately crafted playing card icons from A to 10.
The Aurum Codex is the wild symbol. It substitutes for all symbols except the scatter symbol. In the win animation the codex will open and its pages will start flapping. The scatter symbol is the hourglass. It does not award payouts but acts as a trigger for the free spins bonus feature.
The payout multipliers in Aurum Codex are not the biggest, but because of the bonus features the online pokie has the potential for huge payouts. Check out how they work.
Wild symbols land only on the first and fifth reels, but remain in locked place for the next spin. If two wilds land on the same row, all the symbols in between turn into golden wilds and pay as a combination of five wild symbols. The golden wild symbols are the same as the original symbols except that they appear plated in gold.
Free Spins Feature
Three scatter symbols landing on the second, third and fourth reels trigger 10 free spins. After these are played out the hourglass may randomly turn to award another 5 free spins and may award another 5 free spins after that. If you are lucky then you can win up to 20 free spins.
During the free spins, the wilds are locked not only for one spin, but till the end of the feature. It is much easier to land up with rows of golden wilds. You could even get spins where all symbols on the reels are guaranteed to be wilds and this is where the biggest payouts come.
Auto Spin and Adjust Speed
You can activate the Auto Spin feature in Aurum Codex online pokie through the Auto button. You first select from 10, 20, 30, 50 and 100 auto spins. The auto spins can be stopped at any time even before they are completed so we advise you to go for the maximum. In the interest of responsible gambling, you have to set a loss limit, before you can activate the Auto Spin feature. You can also program the feature to automatically abort on a win greater than the set amount or when the bonus feature is triggered.
If you want to increase the speed of the game play then you can activate the quick spin feature by clicking on the double arrow.
Aurum Codex online pokie does not offer a doubling option after each win. Since there are other attractive features in the online pokie, players will not miss this option.
Alchemy themed pokies are not very common and of the limited number available, Aurum Codex is one of the best. We again remind readers that it has high volatility. In order to win big, you have to trigger the free spins feature and this will not happen as frequently as in most other pokies at New Zealand online casinos. You have to be prepared for the long haul. We suggest that you set the game at 100 auto spins with a provision to stop it when the free spins are triggered. Watch the symbols turning gold and listen to the cash register ringing loudly.
