JAGUAR TEMPLE SLOT
The Slot Buzz adores Thunderkick! We’ve been anticipating every new title from this company since their hilarious debut release Esqueleto Explosivo in 2014! With a few exceptions, they’ve always struck the mark.
Check out our list of Thunderkick Slots for additional information on features, RTP, and volatility. Choose from incredibly inventive games like Fruit Warp, Birds on a Wire, and Flame Busters.
So, what does this time’s batch have in store? We were sorry to see the variance reduced – this is no Pink Elephants. It’s hard to resist the lure of expanding and wild reels in a bonus round with up to 40 spins. So, let’s see what it is.
Jaguar Temple Setup
It has 5 reels and 3 rows with 20 fixed paylines. The game’s theme is the Inca Empire, with the reels positioned on an old temple with a dark mountain backdrop. It’s beautiful and in line with Thunderkick’s excellent production quality.
The RTP is 96.1 and the volatility is modest. From C$0.10 to C$100 per spin.
Jaguar Temple Icons
The game has nine basic symbols. Spades, clubs, diamonds, and hearts are the four low value ones. The high-value Inca sculptures include birds, dogs, bunnies, fish, and a jaguar. This is the greatest paying symbol, returning 50x for 5 in a payline.
The Golden Jaguar appears as both a conventional 1×1 symbol and a boosted 3×3 symbol on the middle three reels.
Keep an eye out for the Wild, since it will be required for significant wins. It’s an Inca character that appears in both the regular game and the bonus round.
Jaguar Temple Bonus Spins
It’s all about the Free Spins and those magical 40 plays. To enter the round, you must land 3 scatters. They can appear anywhere on the reels and pay:
30 x 3 Scatters: 20 x 3
(4) Scatters: 15 FS
5 Scatters: 20 FS
During the bonus round, more scatters equal more free spins — 2 scatters equals 3, 3 scatters equals 10, 4 scatters equals 15, and 5 scatters equals 20.
The gigantic jaguar (largest premium sign) is the key here. Plus, in the free spins phase, the wild that only fills the center three reels expands to make a wild reel. This means 3 wild reels on EVERY spin.
VERDICT SLOT BUZZ
Jaguar Temple isn’t Thunderkick’s greatest game. It’s a terrific little slot with nice gameplay and a bonus round that can get the blood pounding. But it lacks the thrill of their finest high volatility games, and the maximum payout of only 2045x is disappointing. Regardless, the artwork is fantastic as always, so give it a go and see if it works for you. Enjoy!
