Free Jaguar Temple slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Jaguar Temple slot certainly delivers what the title says, a South American theme hinting at the mysteries held by those ancient civilizations of the region. To that end we get some nice drum-based tribal music and a fair bit of eye-catching gold when we open up our game here, where the reels are of stone to match the temple they're set over and a stone tapping sound occurs when they stop spinning. The symbols will seem familiar if you have played Aristocrat's Jaguar Mist or IGT's Jaguar Princess and hopefully we'll have some decent features here like on those two games. Historically many of these ancient sites have been looted, so are there any hidden treasures left for us?
On the reels...
We begin with a basic grid of 5 reels of 3 rows each and 20 paying lines for which we pay a fixed 20 coins to play. The picture symbols appear stacked so let's get a taste of the volatility by examining the 5-of-a-kind pays: the Golden Jaguar awards 50x bet, Fish 25x, Insect 20x, Dragon 17.5x and the Quetzal Bird 15x. As is usual with Thunderkick we have the 4 card suits, paying 10, 8, 7 and 5x for clubs, hearts, spades and diamonds respectively. There is a Sun Disc jewel on all the 5 reels which acts as the scatter and the Incan Chief appears as a Wild on the centre 3 reels.
We get a single in-play event which is signalled by the temple rumbling and a giant 3x3 Golden Jaguar appearing over the middle 3 reels which may or may not stop in view. If it does and fills all 9 positions, you need to hope the stacked Golden Jaguars have landed on reels 1 and 5 as this would award the game's top single pay of 1000x bet! You may be interested to know that the Golden Jaguar also pays adjacent unlike the other icons, so 3 or more consecutively anywhere on a winline will produce a win!
So, you need 3 or more Sun Disc scatters anywhere in view for the free games. This will get you 10 free spins, whereas 4 or 5 will earn you 15 and 20 respectively. You can also retrigger them as well as earning 3 extra spins for just 2 scatters, similar to games like Raging Rhino. You may have guessed your enhancement that's present for the free games and you'd be right if you thought that the 3x3 Golden Jaguar will appear more frequently. That isn't all though as now your Wild Inca Chief will expand too if appearing in view!
Jagaur Temple slot is typical of many Thunderkick slots regarding the base game which has many dead spins but when wins occur they tend to be several times bet or more, similar to Falcon Huntress. The RTP is 96.10% which seems to be Thunderkick's default figure for most games but nevertheless is around what the majority of slots offer nowadays. The graphics and sounds are nothing special but you do have good potential in both the base and bonus game. As said, the base game maximum is 1000x but Thunderkick state it can pay up to 2045x in the free games which tend to be entertaining even when not winning a huge amount. Overall we have a temple here that I wouldn't mind making another sacrifice in...
