The theme of Big Time Gaming’s Temple of Fortune title is familiar to many slot fans: a fedora-wearing adventurer searching for the treasures of a lost temple in the South American rain forest. Against a backdrop of impenetrable jungle and forbidding mountains, the transparent reels are outlined in lapis lazuli. There are five reels, each displaying three large icons.
Temple of Fortune has 20 paylines, and players can play any number from 1 to 20. The slot also allows players to vary their bets per line, from 0.01 to 10.00 in the chosen currency. The game uses only seven symbols in ordinary play, but there are three different bonus games on offer.
Exotic Riches Dominate the List of Symbols
The only standard slot Poker symbols Temple of Fortune users are A, K and Q, carved in impressive stone letters decorated with emeralds, rubies and sapphires. The A pays a prize of 120X the line bet for Five of a Kind.
Next up in value is a ruby brooch, which pays 8X, 40X and 150X the line bet for Three, Four or Five of a Kind, then a colourful pair of stylised parrots, which pay 10X, 50X and 250X the bet for the same matches.
The Temple of Fortune slot game logo, on a gold plaque, is the highest-paying regular symbol, scoring 500X the line bet for Five of a Kind. It also begins paying prizes for Two of a Kind matches or better. However, the Wild symbol, a boyish Indiana Jones-type character, not only substitutes to create more winning lines, it can also win prizes for matches of two or more Wilds in sequence on a payline, starting on the leftmost reel. Five matching Wilds win 1,000X the line bet.
Wheel Bonus Multiplies Total Stake
The first of Temple of Fortune’s bonus slot symbols is a gold gong, embossed with the face of a god. It appears only on Reels 2, 3 and 4, but if three crop up, the Mystical Wheel of Fortune Feature is activated. On a new screen, the player gets to spin a richly decorated Wheel of Fortune, which then applies a multiplier to the player’s total bet. This multiplier can be as high as 1,000X the stake.
Treasure Chest Feature also Adds Multipliers
A solid gold treasure chest is the next bonus symbol, and it can appear on any reel. Three matching symbols triggers the Temple of Fortune slot’s Treasure Chest Feature. The player must click on one of the chests that activated the feature, to reveal a multiplier that is applied to the entire bet for the spin. The top multiplier to be won in this feature is 500X the stake.
Skill Boosts Temple Of Fortune Feature Multipliers
The most interactive of this slot’s bonus features is the Temple of Fortune Feature, triggered by three or more gold temple door symbols. The player is then presented with a series of doors, at each step up to the top of a pyramid. A flashing light track runs through the numbers 1, 2, 3,4 and Collect on one side of the screen. Players must click Stop on this light track, hoping to stop it on one of the numbers, so that they can advance that number of steps up the pyramid and trigger the light track again. When the player stops the light on Collect, they are paid the multiplier at the level they have reached, applied to the total bet for the spin. This can be as much as 750X.
