Temple Tumble Megaways
Relax Gaming is busy making use of the newly signed Megaways license and after the release of Machina by their associate Kalamba Games, it is now their turn to show their creativity on using this highly versatile and popular game engine. Temple Tumble Megaways takes you deep into the Aztec jungle where you will explore mysterious hidden underground temples with cascading symbols, reactive wins, symbol blockers and three types of free spins that can lead to wins of up to 7,767 times your bet.
Temple Tumble Megaways is a 6×6 grid slot with up to 46,656 ways to win. The game is using the patented Megaways engine from Big Time Gaming to randomly create anything from 64 to 46,656 ways to win on every spin. Pays are awarded for adjacent symbols from left to right only.
You can play the slot on mobile and desktop from 0.20 to 100.00 credits. The RTP of this high variance game is set at 96.25% that will help to avoid quick busts. The Autoplay function allows 10 to 100 consecutive spins without interruption.
Graphics and Visuals
The slot has an Aztec theme with a jungle and a temple in the background. The game window is carved into a stone structure and flanked by a tribal stone statue and an eternal flame. The scenery moves into an underground temple in the free spins round where a fiery lion and a fire-spewing dragon are guarding the reels. The reels are populated by tribal masks and an explorer on his quest to find the vast treasures in the temple.
Open the game to find the card royals from J to A at the low end, followed in ascending order by three gemstones in green, blue and red colours, as well as a dragon mask and an Aztec god face sculpture. The latter is the most valuable, paying 8x your stake for a single six of a kind. The explorer is the wild symbol, substituting for all symbols. Each spin will also reel in stone-carved blocker symbols. There are no scatters on this slot as the free spins are triggered by removing all blocker symbols in a spin sequence.
The Tumbling Blocks Mechanic Explained
The game window is fixed with 46,656 ways to win but only a random number will be active on the initial cascade. On every spin in the base game and free spins, the slot also reels in a random number of blocker symbols which can be destroyed by hitting an adjacent win. Removing all blocker symbols in view will trigger the free spins round.
Temple Tumble Megaways also features reactive wins. Symbols from a winning combo will explode after it is paid to make room for new ones to drop into place. This continues as long as a new winning combination lands after a fresh drop. All wins from a spin sequence are accumulated and paid in one amount after it ends.
The Temple Tumble Megaways Free Spins Feature
Relax Gaming has given the Megaways engine their own twist by offering players three types of free spins, each with different volatility. Destroying all blockers will trigger six free spins with three options to choose from:
- Extra Spins – medium volatility: Special stones can land on the reels, awarding extra free spins when they are destroyed.
- Multipliers & Extra Spins – high volatility: On top of containing extra spins, the special stones can unveil win multipliers.
- Multipliers – sky-high volatility: The special stone blockers contain only multipliers.
Players can choose their preferred free spins option on each trigger. The mixed multiplier/extra spins option seems to be the best choice as it will add both types of stones to the grid and thus should produce some wins. However, it will need the multipliers only option to hit the maximum win potential on this game.
Well, well, well, the Megaways frenzy just got bigger with Relax Gaming releasing their first slot of this type. After signing the license with BTG in 2018, they are hard at work to use the engine. While there were more known to produce rather bland games, the Megaways could be their breakthrough to become a tier 1 provider. Overall, the game is well designed and the twist to trigger the free spins as well as the option to chose from three types will have players sitting in suspense as to whether the big multipliers will be unveiled in the bonus round.
