Back to the tombs of ancient Egypt with Temple of Tut, a classic slots title from developers Just for the Win. Similar to Cleopatra or Book of Dead, his is a slots game that revisits an ancient Egyptian tomb, under the guise of a modern day explorer in search of buried treasure. Maybe you can think of some other slots that deploy a similar theme – we couldn’t possibly comment, other than to say that what the game’s theme lacks in originality, it more than makes up for in gameplay.
Temple of Tut slot is a fairly standard slot by design, but it does benefit from some impressive attention to detail on the visual side. The backdrop to the reels is basic, but the reel symbols themselves are well realised, and give this game a stylish if cartoonish appeal. When you add in some intriguing bonus features, this compact game begins to look like an even more desirable slot to take for a spin.
The first thing you’ll notice about the main reels is that there are five of them, with three positions available on each reel. These positions are filled with symbols designed in keeping with the game’s theme, such as ancient artefacts and explorers. The explorers are the highest paying symbols, and combinations of three or more of these on any of the 10 paylines will net you the biggest prizes that the game has to offer.
The artefacts fill the lower value positions on the reels, taking the place of the high cards that ordinarily appear in slots of this kind. This is a nice touch, and helps keep things thematic – much better than hastily drawn card symbols just to make up the numbers.
Bets start from as little as £0.10 per punt, ranging up to £250.00 per spin. The jackpot is a not insignificant 25x – by no means a progressive or high jackpot game, but certainly enough to make you sit up and take notice if you land a jackpot win.
In terms of payouts, Temple of Tut stands at 96.01%, way beyond the average of 95.00%. This means the house edge is slimmer than many corresponding slots games, which means you benefit from a greater chance of winning over the long term.
Wins can be formed right to left, as well as left to right – a good feature for securing combination wins. But the wins come even easier with the help of the game’s wild symbol, the Sphinx’s Head Wild. This acts like any missing symbol amongst a payline, securing you a winning combination wherever possible. The exception to the rule is the scatter or bonus symbol, which won’t be replaced by the wild.
In Temple of Tut, it’s the game logo symbol that acts as the bonus symbol. If you land three or more of these, you’ll receive an allocation of free spins, which will kick-off immediately after you trigger the bonus feature. Although there’s no risk to you for these free spins, you can still win money to add to your bankroll – so it’s not surprise this is where the bulk of the big wins get started.
As with all our reviews, lets mention the bonuses. Landing three bonus scatters wins you 8 free spins, while you’ll get 15 free spins for a matching four. Land five in view and you get the full allocation of 30 free spins. You can then retrigger the feature during the bonus round by landing two or more additional scatters, for 2-30 additional free spins added to your balance.
There’s also a feature known as Super Reels – reels which come with a much higher chance of landing a wild symbol. You’ll know this is active when the reels start changing colour, something that can occur randomly at intervals throughout the game. When this occurs, you’re much more likely to land a wild, and thereby secure a combination win from your spin.
During the free spins bonus feature, Super Reels is active from the beginning, so that’s even more opportunity to capitalise on your free spins allocation.
Temple of Tut might have a well-worn theme, but it still manages to keep the action fresh and exciting – even for slots veterans. Super Reels plus the free spins bonus feature keep the action ticking over, with the potential for some pretty big wins along the way.
