Vault Trail Bonus

Spin two Vault Bonus symbols (in reels two and four) to triger the Vault Trail Bonus.  The locked Cryptex box will then appear and it is your job to unlock the vault by spinning the reels.  You will be awarded one more spin for every correct symbol you find and may be given the option to buy a respin.  Unlucky codebreakers who fail to crack the first reel will still walk away with 5x their stake.

Although Codex is available on mobile devices, the gameplay and graphics can lag a little compared to the desktop version.  That said, it’s definitely still worth a spin.
