Marco Polo is a slot machine developed by Novomatic. The slot was released on 19th March 2008. The slot is more than 10 years old but has been completely redeveloped in HTML5 which means that it still works great on all computers and mobile units. There is also an older flash version of the game.

Marco polo slot machine

Marco Polo is as the name suggests inspired by Marco Polo and his journeys. The slot is fun to play and offer a return to player (RTP) of 95%. 95% RTP means that the slot will keep more of your money than many other slots but it is still not a bad as many slots based on movies or TV series.

If you like retro video slots then you are likely to love Marco Polo. If not then I recommend that you avoid this slot and play a more modern slot with a high RTP instead. Doing so will give you a better chance to win money.

Reels, pay lines and coin value

This slot features 5 reels and you can choose up to 9 different pay lines. You can choose to play one, three, five, seven or all nine pay lines. You can never play an even number of pay lines. The pay lines are clearly indicated on the board so it is easy to see which lines you can win on. You can not change the coin value in the slot. The coin value is static. You can, however, decide how many coins you want to bet on each pay line. You can bet between 1 and 200 coins per lines.

The minimum bet when playing Marco Polo video slot is 1 coin. You bet one coin on one pay lines. The maximum bet you can make is 1800. 200 coins and each and every one of the 9 pay lines. You always have to bet the same number of coins on all pay lines.


The symbols in the game are inspired by the journey of Marco Polo. Among the symbols are you will find Marco Polo himself, Kublai Khan, a camel, a map, a wooden box as well as the standard letters and numbers. The Marco Polo inspired symbols are of course more valuable than the standard symbols.

Scatter & wild symbol

The camel is a scatter symbol. Get at least 3 scatter symbols to trigger free spins. 3 symbols give you 10 free spins. More scatter symbols gives you even more free spins. The camel can also act as a wild symbol to create winning combinations.


The game does not have any progressive jackpot. The largest single line win is 5000 times the bet on that line. If you bet 200 coins on the winning pay line you can win 1 000 000 coins. To get the jackpot you need to get 5 Marco Polo symbols on the same pay line. You can win more than 1000 000 coins if you win n more than one pay line.

Risk game

Marco Polo from Novomatic also contains a risk game where you can double or lose your winnins. The goal of the risk game is to predict the color of the top card in a deck of cards.
