Fortune Favours the Bold
As you get steadily engrossed in this slot, you’ll notice the subtle effects that help bring the game to life, from reflecting sunlight on the logo above the reels to a tropical backdrop that moves at various stages in play. Temple of Fortune is a 20 payline game with a stake per line that can be set between 0.01 and 10. You can also adjust the number of active paylines. There’s no max bet button, but setting the stake to the maximum 200.00 per spin is a simple task. Autoplay allows for a maximum of 25 spins to be performed by the computer.
In the base game, the playing card symbols are the lowest value symbols, but despite their lowly status they look great thanks to the gems inlaid into each one and the attention to detail: the slot’s developers have really made an effort here. Above the playing cards are a red gem set in gold, a parrot brooch, a Temple of Fortune logo which is worth 500x your stake for five and the Indiana Jones type who’s wild and is worth 1,000x your stake for five. Wild will substitute for any of the regular playing symbols, as is the norm.
Take It to the Temple
There are various symbols to look out for that will expedite your progress deeper into the temple, where danger and fortune lurk in equal measure. The golden wheel, inscribed with some kind of Inca motif, will trigger the Mystical Wheel of Fortune feature. The golden wheel symbol is prone to appearing on reels 2-4. When you’re taken through to the feature game you’ll come face to face with the most exquisite looking bonus wheel you’ve ever seen, covered in gold and precious gems. Spin the wheel to win up to 1,000x your stake.
There’s also the Temple of Fortune feature, which appears as a golden symbol flanked by regal red. Three or more will trigger the feature. This bonus game will see you make your way into the temple, climbing upwards towards its roof and collecting multipliers along the way. When the stopper hits on Collect, you’ll be awarded anything you’ve collected up till that point. The most you stand to win from this feature is 750x your stake.
Treasure You Can Measure
Another major feature is named Treasure Chest. Look out for the treasure chest symbols which, like Temple of Fortune, can appear on any of the reels. Click on one of the chests when the feature is triggered to determine the value of the multiplier you’ve been awarded. It’s possible to win up to 500x your stake.
Temple of Fortune is an extremely enjoyable game to play once you get into it, not least because it feels more like a videogame in places, especially when you activate one of the three feature games. If you’d like to play something similar to this medium variance game, try Mazooma’s Rainbow Reels or Sherlock Holmes by IGT. The themes might be different, but the features are very similar.
Temple of Swoon
The Indiana Jones/Lara Croft slots market is a crowded one, and while there’s a case for arguing that players really don’t need another game in this vein, they’ve got one just the same in the form of Temple of Fortune. Thankfully, it’s a cracker on account of its beautiful graphics and immersive features that will keep you rapt and engrossed as you delve deeper into the ancient South American temple.
