Lose Yourself in the Jungle
Temple of Secrets is taking place somewhere in South America, with pyramids and giant statues emerging from the thick vegetation that covers the entire background of the game. The reels and command bar occupy a large part of the game screen, adorned with bright colours and beautiful ornaments here and there.
Overall, Temple of Secrets has a rather classic look and decent graphics to offer. The sound effects are a little cartoonish as well, and experienced players will recognise the Novomatic style right away. Will the gameplay stick to the basics as well? We will find out in our next section.
Keep Your Eyes on the Prizes
Temple of Secrets is based on a large 5×4 reel set that covers the jungle in the background almost entirely. The game also features 50 paylines and a betting range going from 0.50 to 100.00 in total, which is very impressive. Use the different plus and minus buttons to activate paylines and choose your next wager freely before spinning the reels manually, or activated the autoplay game mode. Each win in Temple of Secrets also gives you a chance to play a mini game to double your reward instantly; just guess the colour of the hidden card to do so.
As you will soon realise, Temple of Secrets has a rather high volatility and scoring wins can be a little tough if you are not betting on all 50 paylines at all times. The paytable of the game contains mostly card icons and also jaguars, monkeys and temples with a maximum prize of x400 available in the base game. Temple of Secrets might sound a little challenging at first, but you also have a couple of bonus features ready to help you out.
A Progressive Jackpot Ready to Spice Things Up
The first special symbol of Temple of Secrets is the treasure map, a scatter that pays us to x5000 in any position on the reels. Keep an eye on it at all times, as scatter combinations also initiate a bonus round of 10 free games with win multipliers (up to x10) available. Now this is clearly a path through the jungle leading all the way to a big pile of gold, so don’t miss out.
Our Indiana Jones lookalike is the wild card of Temple of Secrets, able to replace the basic symbol and create original combinations worth up to x1000. To unlock the Temple of Secrets progressive jackpot, you will have to manage to fill up the entire 20 positions on the screen with wilds, which is a challenge but one that could unlock a super cash prize displayed in the top right-hand corner of the screen.
Uncover the Secrets
Temple of Secrets is not a revolutionary slot game in any way. The graphics are good but not exceptional, the gameplay is classic and overall the game feels like many other Novomatic creations. However, each spin was very exciting to us thanks to the promise of a generous free spin bonus and even a progressive jackpot just within our reach.
Book of Ra is quite an obvious comparison here. This other Novomatic creation stars the same main character in an Egyptian universe, with high stakes and the same old-school style that many players have grown to love over the years.
