Templar Tumble is a cascading video slot with six reels, seven rows and up to 117,649 ways to win. Pays are awarded for three to six matching symbols landing on adjacent reels from left to right only. You can delve into medieval mysteries on desktop, tablet or mobile from 0.10 to 20 credits per spin. The game has maximum volatility (5/5) with an RTP of 96.26% and a hit frequency of roughly 1:5 spins. Using the Free Spins Buy option will slightly increase the value to 96.92%.
Relax is taking us on a journey back in time when valiant Templar knights in their distinctive white mantles with a red cross were amongst the most skilled fighters. On this occasion, one knight is guarding the game window against a mystical giant bird on the other side as symbols tumble onto the grid on solid stone blocks. The castle entrance serves as the frame for the game window while a medieval soundtrack provides the main audio.
The pay symbols start at the low end with gem arrangements in different shapes and colours – blue, green, purple and blazing red – awarding across the board 0.40x your bet for a single six of a kind. They are followed by three medium symbols – lion, eagle and Yggdrasil tree – with red, purple and green background as well as a templars rind and a helmet as premiums. Hit six across the reels to win 0.6x to 2x your stake. A golden icon marked with ‘W’ is the wild, substituting for all regular symbols while a red knight’s seal with a question mark acts as the mystery symbol. There are no scatters on the reels.
Templar Tumble Slot Features
Templar Tumble is the fourth in a series that started in February 2019 with Temple Tumble Megaways, which was at the time of its release the Megaways debut for Relax Gaming. They have since refined the concept and brought in new modifiers that give each of the games in the series their own standing. Reason enough to take a closer look as to what you can expect to see on this occasion.
To get started, it would be probably best to explain how a spin sequence unfolds. The layout is fixed in a 6×7 format with 117,649 ways although not all reel positions are always active. For every spin in the base game, a random number of pay symbols is tumbling onto the reels while all positions on top of the symbols are filled with stone blockers. Your aim will be to remove all blockers within the same spin to trigger the main event.
Hit at least three matching symbols on adjacent reels starting from the left and you have a winner. All symbols in the combo as well as all blockers touching them will shatter before being removed while the remaining symbols and blockers fall towards the bottom. New symbols than tumble into the empty spaces, potentially creating more winning combinations. The process is repeated until no more wins occur or all blockers have been removed. The latter will trigger the free spins.
Helping you to keep a spin sequence going is the Mystery Reveal feature. Wild symbols can appear after the first winning tumble and will turn 3 – 8 blockers into mystery symbols, recognizable by the question mark. Once no more wins occur and all cascades have played out, they will reveal either a common pay symbol or a coin win between 1x – 1,000x your bet each. Wilds can land repeatedly within a spin. Having them appear in a series of winning cascades will see more and more blockers turn into mystery symbols.
Clearing all blockers on the grid within the same spin sequence will trigger 6 Free Spins, which cannot be retriggered as such but you can win more spins during the feature. The free spins are played on the full 117,649 ways without any blockers. Any wild landing on a free spin will turn 3 – 6 symbols in view into Mystery Reveal symbols. Only one wild can land per winning cascade and Mystery Reveal symbols are kept on the grid until they are activated once no more wins occur. The difference to the base game is that they can now reveal either a common pay symbol, coin wins between 1 – 1,000x bet, additional free spins or a combination of the latter two.
Should you be lucky enough to reside in a jurisdiction where Bonus Buys are not restricted, then you can cut through the chase and head straight to the main event by using the Free Spins Buy option. Simply click on the button on the side of the game window (desktop) and a pop-up will appear. It will cost you 80x your stake to purchase a Free Spins round. Any triggering spin is bypassed and you will instantly start the free spins once you confirmed the purchase. The mechanics in the bought feature are identical to one triggered organically.
Templar Tumble is a great-looking slot with crisp visuals and impressive animations that fit the medieval theme. The goal to destroy all blockers gives the game an extra layer of suspense that will frustrate at times when a single stone would just not shatter and the spin ends without triggering the free spins. The bonus feature itself looks quite volatile, so using the buy option should be done with some caution.
