It's time to get on the silk route! Novomatic summons the great adventurer Marco Polo in this classic slot. This very popular game has a traditional interface with the usual card symbols, a camel as the scatter, treasure chests, maps, Kublai Khan -the Mongol emperor, and Marco Polo himself as the wild symbol. This is retro gaming at its best.

Just like the main character, you'll be out hunting for riches. The game has a free round feature, triggered by matching Scatter symbols with an automatic multiplier of 3x your bet. If you're lucky enough to collect three Special Scatter symbols during these spins, then you're in for a treat. The multiplier will increase by one, and you'll reset the free mode to 3 more spins.

Players Review

Whenever I feel like keeping it simple, I go for a fine couple of hours playing Marco Polo. It is the perfect example of simplicity and ease of use. As one of Novomatic's first releases, it has the looks, sounds, and features of a classic. It will take you back to where it all started for online casino gambling.

I think the main reason this slot is still so popular is because it's not in any way pretentious; it's all about the game. You're getting the usual A, K, Q, J, and ten symbols, as well as some items related to Marco Polo's adventures.

There's a feature in this game that will really keep you at the edge of your seat. Right after each win, you'll have the possibility to enter a mini-game, in which you're asked to choose between keeping that round's earnings and doubling them by guessing the colour of a card.

Will it be red or black? It might not seem too much when you're playing in the standard game, but... are you willing to risk 30 or 40 free round earnings on a single 50-50 bet? Go find out!

I would love if our friends from Novomatic added some music to the slot; I think it has many adventures left to share with us for years to come.
