Tales of Aztec gold have been tickling our collective imagination ever since the conquistadors launched their expeditions into the Amazonian jungles in search of possible fame and fortune. And it certainly tickled some of the creative imaginations over at Blueprint Gaming, because this is the theme for its new online slot Temple of Treasures Megaways.
And I’m sure all me Foxy fans will be delighted to know that this new release has all the features we’ve come to expect from a Blueprint Megways game. To aid you in your quest for mythical treasures, there are the usual cascading reels, mystery symbols, and the chance to choose from four fantastic Free Spins rounds!
9, 10, J, Q, K and A card ranks and three gem-encrusted bits of Aztec bling will land on the reels. A gold statue is the most valuable of the symbols, awarding 50 times the stake for 6 of a kind.
A fancy gold Aztec brooch is the Wild, standing in for all regular symbols to help form wins. It won’t replace the Scatter, which is an Aztec temple perched on top of a hill, or the Mystery symbol, another brooch.
The grid, framed by stone pillars and set against a jungle backdrop, has six vertical reels, and one four-position horizontal reel across the top. Between 2 and 7 symbols can land on each of the other reels, and this can produce 117,649 possible ways to win when all the reels are full.
Temple of Treasure can be played on all devices, and the betting range goes from 0.10 to 100.00 per spin. You can set the reels to spin automatically for between 5 and 100 spins, and this option requires you to set a minimum loss limit for the session.
Three or more matching symbols on adjacent reels, starting from the leftmost one, will get you a payout, and every win triggers a cascade.
Whenever a lucky fox forms a win of three or more matching symbols, they'll also trigger a cascade. All the winning symbols disappear from the reels, and new symbols tumble down from the top to fill all the empty spaces this creates. The cascades are a pretty standard feature on Megaways slots, but we're not complaining, are we, me Foxy fans? They're a great bonus and can lead to multiple wins from one spin, which can really add up over time.
Another Megaways standard, the Mystery Symbol, is also here. These will land on the grid at random before all turning into the same symbol to hopefully form a possible winning combination.
Four of the Aztec temple Scatters landing on the reels at the same time will trigger the Free Spins. But first, players are given a choice between different numbers of Free Spins and guaranteed ways to win for the round. These are;
15 free spins with at least 324 possible ways to win
10 free spins with at least 2304 possible ways to win
5 free spins with at least 10 000 possible ways to win
Mystery Choice – random number of free spins and possible ways to win.
In the Free Spins, the cascades get even better, 'cause every winning one will increase the win multiplier by +1. And it won't reset at the end of the cascade run. It just keeps growing during the bonus round to create some hugely generous win potential. As an additional perk, every Scatter that lands in the Free Spins will add more to the total.
Temple of Treasures delivers exactly what we want from a Blueprint Gaming Megaways slot, including a potential top win of 10,000 times the stake. This is a pretty impressive figure, so I bet you're scratchin' your furry little noggins wondering how it's possible with a top symbol payout of only 50 x the stake. Cascading reels and increasing multipliers is how a good winning streak can up the value of prizes considerably. But a bad losing streak could empty your balance before you know it. And since both are possible on this medium volatility game, be a sensible fox and set loss limits. Good Luck!
