Temple of Treasure Megaways (Blueprint Gaming): Review
Ok, so we know what some of you are already thinking - Blueprint games are becoming increasingly difficult to tell apart. There's a whole heap of Megaways slot available nowadays and providers almost seem to churn out new ones at a rate of one per day. So far it has worked exceptionally well for Blueprint which, of course, only further stimulates their insatiable desire for Megaways dominance. We don't mind, however. There's always some nuances to explore that keep things interesting and well, the proven potential alone undoubtedly makes them worth playing.
Temple of Treasure is an Aztec-themed slot that comes with an array of features. It's built using the Megaways concept and cascading symbols, where each reel can reveal up to 7 symbols and each spin can have up to 117,649 ways to win. Similar to Vikings Unleashed, you'll benefit from unlimited multipliers in the free spins bonus and in case you're too impatient for it to drop organically, you also have the option to invest in the bonus buy feature where you'll be faced with 4 options. You can play Temple of Treasure across all devices from between 0.10 to 100 Eur per spin with a chance to win up to 10,000 times your stake.
The Aztec culture flourished from 1300 to 1521 in central Mexico and has captivated the imaginations of Europeans since the first encounters. In popular culture, the Aztecs are often associated with human sacrifice and gold, both of which actually were central to the Aztec culture. Blood sacrifice was in fact regularly conducted and regarded as a responsibility in order to allow life to continue. The victims would be shot with arrows, burned, drowned and even had their hearts extracted in some cases. Thankfully, you won't have to endure any of that in this slot, although facing high variance games such as this one can be quite gruesome in its own way.
Anyways, set against a jungle backdrop, the reels are flanked by stone temple pillars and feature 9, 10, J, Q, K and A royal values as well as 3 gem-decorated golden objects. The golden Aztec statue is the highest paying symbol, awarding you 50 times your stake for 6 of a kind. There is also a wild that only appears in the extra reel on top of the standard reel set.
Temple of Treasure Megaways (Blueprint Gaming): Features
Temple of Treasure is fundamentally a cascading-type slot. Winning combinations will trigger a chain reaction where winning symbols are removed and replaced by new ones dropping down from above. This repeats until no more new winning combinations are generated. Look out for the special Mystery symbol. All instances of it landing on the reels will transform into identical symbols, something that in rare cases can result in significant wins.
Moving on to the free spins bonus. The same chain reaction feature applies here as well with the added benefit of increasing multipliers which increases by 1 following every drop reaction win.
You will have to land 4 bonus scatter symbols in order to trigger the bonus with every extra scatter awarding additional spins. It's also possible to retrigger the bonus - 3 or 4 scatter symbols in view in the positions above the reel set grants 5 or 10 extra free spins respectively. Additionally, you can also buy access to the bonus to a cost of 100 times your total stake. Upon trigger the bonus you'll be faced with 4 options:
- 15 free spins - Minimum 324 Megaways guaranteed.
- 10 free spins - Minimum 2,304 Megaways guaranteed.
- 5 free spins - Minimum 10,000 Megaways guaranteed.
- Mystery Choice - Pick from a set of panels to reveal your free spins/Megaways combination. This can grant you up to 15 free spins with 10,000 Megaways guaranteed.
Temple of Treasure Megaways (Blueprint Gaming): Conclusion
Temple of Treasure is undoubtedly an impressive display of slot engineering, both mathematically and visually. With that said, we can't help to feel slightly disappointed regarding the fact that it's more or less a clone of other Blueprint Megaways titles. However, the Megaways game engine delivers plenty of thrill as usual and the guaranteed Megaways feature is a new addition worth exploring. If you opt for the Mystery Choice, you can trigger the top combination to potentially great effect.
Temple of Treasure Megaways has a max win capacity of 10,000 times your stake (capped at £250,000) and, unlike other Megaways producers making big promises, Blueprint Gaming's versions have repeatedly proven their true potential as has been noted on social media.
Temple of Treasure Megaways boasts enough compelling action to entertain despite its formulaic elements.
