Introducing Solar Temple
Solar Temple from the developers at Playson will take you on an adventure into the tropical jungles in America in this Aztec-themed game. Be prepared to come across some unusual extras including the flaming sun symbols that which can change into flaming frames that will then turn wild after all spins have been completed. However, these flaming frames can also provide multipliers, and these combined with free spins with sticky wilds give this slot plenty of substance. Play takes place on 5-reels with 20 pay lines and the slot is bright, vibrant, well designed and offers a perfectly executed slot game.
Solar Temple Features
This slot relies heavily on the Flaming Frames feature, and you need to keep your eyes open for the progressive multipliers, multiple wild transformations and the free spins complete with sticky wilds that are on offer in this Aztec adventure. We will now look at each feature more closely.
The Flaming Frames feature takes advantage of the way the game has been designed with the action being split over 10-spin blocks. When you get lucky and land a flaming sun symbol, this position is set alight and then creates a Flaming Frame. Once you turn your tenth and final spin all the Flaming Frames morph into wilds on which a new pay out is calculated with all the wilds in play. Once this has been completed the reels turn back into their original state devoid of any Flaming Frames.
The Progressive Multiplier feature comes into play when you have landed a sun symbol in a place on your reels that is already habited by a flaming frame, when this happens a dynamic multiplier comes into play with each sun symbol increasing the multiplier 1x, the multipliers reset to one once your tenth spin has taken place.
The final feature is the Free Spins, and this becomes active when you land the scatter symbol which is represented by the Aztec pyramid on your 1st, 3rd and 5th reels on the same spin. You are rewarded with 10 free spins to start the feature and the gameplay differs as each time you land a sun symbol it transforms into a sticky wild which then lock into position for all the remaining free spins.
Bet Details and RTP
Solar Temple plays out over 5-reels, 4-rows and has 20 pay lines, with bets that start from 20p per spin up to a maximum of £100 per spin making this ideal for beginners as well as those with a far larger bank balance. The return to player is relatively low and stands at 95.22% and the maximum win with the multipliers is 20,000x your stake. Apart from the fiery theme this slot is not as volatile as you may expect as the variance stands at medium to high, not quite massively explosive but high enough to keep the game interesting.
The A button situated below your reels gives you the opportunity to use the auto play feature, and this can be used to change things such as your win and loss limits.
Theme, Design & Symbols
The design of Solar Temple is vibrant and perfectly executed with superb detail providing a stunning combination. The design works beautifully on all devices although the interface differs slightly on small screens, but you still have access to the entire game as you would if you were to play on your computer.
With a jungle background and reels that are edged in gold, the deep blue backdrop is a perfect setting for the brightly coloured playing cards from 10 through to Ace. Along with the playing card symbols are four animal symbols and two superbly designed face masks which are a gorgeous colour combination of bright red and gold.
The highest paying standard symbol is the Aztec woman with a gorgeous green dress and feather filled headdress. This fabulous lady can become stacked and spin, if you land 2, 3, 4 or 5 of her you will be rewarded with 0.1x, 1x, 2.5x or 10x your stake. These are the same amounts that are available from the wild, which comes into its own when it follows the ten-spin cycle. The “i” button that is located at the bottom of your reels provides access to the pay table and this is clear and gives all the information that you could need.
Solar Temple Conclusion
Solar Temple is a stunning, vibrant Aztec adventure that is packed full of extras and I can truly say that this is one of the most enjoyable slots that I have played in quite some time. From the first impression the superb design is matched by some truly unique gameplay and although the slot does not offer a high variance it keeps things interesting. The top attraction must be the 20,000x your stake win and the 10-spin cycle that ramps up the excitement, particularly if you land a good number of the flaming frames early on.
The free spin feature with sticky wilds is an excellent combination and when combined with all the other aspects this slot has to offer it is impressive and a top all-round performer. Don’t just take my word for it though, give it a spin or two you won’t be disappointed.
