ALL ABOUT TEMPLE TUMBLE SLOT REVIEW
In the rush of game developers to sign up as Megaways™ licensees, the name of Relax might not have been the first to catch your eye. But whilst they do not have the back catalogue to match a Blueprint or a Red Tiger Gaming they evidently do know how to make a mean-looking slot! Indeed, Temple Tumble is a beautifully crafted beast, with superb artwork and excellent gameplay that already make it stand out from the glut of games being unleashed into the slot market in early 2019.
It comes hot on the heels of Relax’s futuristic cyborg fantasy game, Machina, and is a Polynesian-themed slot that uses ancient ruins, crumbling statues and fire pits to form the backdrop to some mesmerizing high variance action and win potential in excess of 7,000x.
Gameplay, Symbols and Pay Tables
There are two backdrops to Temple Tumble. One is the base game scene in which the reel set sits inside temple ruins with a misty jungle scene in the background. Should you make it into the free spins round you’ll be led to an underground chamber with stone statues of serpents and dragons.
Low value symbols in the game are the cards, Ace through to Jack. The premium symbols are the three colored gemstones, a tiki mask and a sun-face sculpture.
Temple Tumble uses the cascading wins mechanic that crops up in a lot of Megaways™ slots, including the famous BTG game, Bonanza. On the 6×6 reel set after any winning spin, the symbols that form the winline are removed and replaced with new ones. Should they form a winning combination, then the process repeats until no more winlines are visible.
There is also a wild which will substitute for all others.
Temple Tumble Features
Free Spins Round
Temple Tumble operates with an interesting mechanism to unlock the bonus round. You will need to remove ALL stone blocks from the reel set to trigger the free spins. The stone blocks appear at random during base game spins – they can be destroyed by landing winlines in adjacent positions.
In the Free Spins round you will have the option of 3 levels of volatility and start with six free spins. The options are:
- Extra Spins – Medium Volatility– extra spin symbols are added to the reels to give the chance of adding to your cache.
- Multipliers and Extra Spins – High Volatility – as well as extra spin symbols, multiplier symbols are added to the reels which can drive much bigger wins.
- Multipliers – Very High Volatility– even bigger and better multiplier symbols are added to the reels. Here’s where you may get close to the top payout of over 7,000x.
The Slot Buzz Verdict
Relax’s Temple Tumble is not a feature-packed slot by any means – the gameplay is simple and the bonus round lacks some of the thrills and spills of blockbuster Megaways™ slots like White Rabbit. However, it can’t be denied that this one is great to look at! To enjoy it to the full you will have to unlock Temple Tumble’s bonus round. Once you do choose your level carefully – the very high variance multiplier level is where the best payouts may hide, but beware because it will be extremely hard to land winlines here.
