ALL ABOUT JAGUAR TEMPLE SLOT
Here at The Slot Buzz we love Thunderkick! Ever since they dropped their hilarious debut release Esqueleto Explosivo back in 2014 we’ve greeted every new title from this studio like a kid opening their presents on Xmas day! And with just a few exceptions, they’ve hit the mark every time.
If you want to know more of course you can check out our list of Thunderkick Slots here, with features, RTP and variance. The full range of slots is available to browse, including brilliantly creative games like Fruit Warp, Birds on a Wire and Flame Busters.
So, what do these guys have in store for us this time? Well, we were a little disappointed to see that the variance has been turned down a notch – this is no Pink Elephants that’s for sure. Nonetheless, the promise of expanding wilds and wild reels in a bonus round offering up to 40 spins is definitely enticing. So, let’s see what it’s all about.
Jaguar Temple Game Set Up
This is a 5 reel and 3 row game set up with 20 fixed paylines. The game has an Inca Empire theme, with the reel set built on an ancient temple with a dusky mountain scene in the background. It’s picturesque and in keeping with the high production values we’ve come to expect from Thunderkick.
The RTP is 96.1% and the variance medium. You can play from 10p up to £100 per spin.
Jaguar Temple Game Symbols
There are nine basic symbols in the game. The four low value ones are card suits, spades, clubs, diamonds and hearts. The premium, high value symbols are Inca carvings – birds, dogs, rabbits, fish and a jaguar. The latter is the best paying symbol with a decent 50x return for 5 in a payline.
The Golden Jaguar comes as both a regular 1×1 symbol and also a boosted 3×3 symbol that lands on a random spin in the middle 3 reels.
Look out as well for the Wild, because you’ll need that to drive any big wins. It is an Inca character and it drops in both the base game, and more frequently, the bonus round.
Jaguar Temple Features
Of course, it’s all about the Free Spins round here and that magic 40 plays. You’ll need to land 3 or more scatters to access the round. They land anywhere on the reels and reward you as follows:
3 Scatters: 10 Free Spins
4 Scatters: 15 Free Spins
5 Scatters: 20 Free Spins
You can also pick up extra free spins during the bonus round by landing more scatters – 2 gets you 3 more, 3 gets you 10 more, 4 gets you 15 more, and 5 scatters lands you an extra 20 free spins.
And there’s more …
The key here is the jumbo jaguar (biggest premium symbol) that will land more often in the free spins round. Plus, the wild that occupies only the middle 3 reels, will expand to create a wild reel whenever it lands in the free spins round. This creates the opportunity for 3 wild reels on EVERY spin.
THE SLOT BUZZ VERDICT
Jaguar Temple won’t go down as Thunderkick’s best game to date. It’s a tidy little slot with some nice gameplay and the chance for some decent action to get the blood pumping in the bonus round. However, it lacks the excitement of some of their very best high variance games and the top payout of just 2045x is a little underwhelming. Nevertheless, the artwork is top notch as always and its definitely worth giving this one a spin to see if it works for you. Enjoy!
