A forgotten civilisation is the setting for Lost Temple, a 5 reel, 1,024 ways to win slot from Lightning Box Games. Venture through the jungle and you’ll have the chance to land up to 12 free spins complete with a bumper 8x multiplier. Stakes range from between 40p and £200 per spin.

Set against lush, green forest vegetation, the reels in Lost Temple include vine filled playing card symbols alongside snakes and scorpions, precious stones, piles of coins and chests full of treasure – the latter is the one to hope to hit as a 5 symbol combination will net you a haul of 1,000 times your line bet.

The blonde haired woman is the wild – she won’t offer any payouts in her own right but will substitute for any other symbol apart from the bonus scatter. When the bonus symbol lands on successive reels, the Hold N Spin phase is triggered.

These 3 bonus symbols will be locked in place with the remaining reels spinning up to 3 times. Land another bonus symbol on those re-spins and it too will be locked and another 3 re-spins will follow. Manage to get a bonus symbol on all 5 columns and you’ll trigger the Temple Steps Bonus feature. However, you’ll also go directly to the feature if you land 5 bonus scatters in the base game at once.

You’ll then be presented with a pyramid structure made up of squares – pick a square on the bottom row. Land a green arrow and you’ll advance to the next step above. The higher up the pyramid you make it, the more free spins and the higher the multiplier you’ll be awarded.

Keep ascending until you land a red arrow which will bring the picks to a close – you’ll start with at least 6 free spins with a 2x multiplier but if you make it all the way to the summit, a very tidy haul of 12 free spins with an 8x multiplier awaits.

Visually, Lost Temple isn’t anything special – the cartoon style symbols look a little tired in fact. The pan pipe heavy soundtrack in the bonus feature is quite appealing though. What makes this slot stand out is the feature though – it’s not the easiest to hit but thanks to the medium to high variance, it can deliver some impressive results.

Make it up to the upper echelons of the temple pyramid with the big multipliers, and the lengthy waits can be worth your while. If you like this game, you should definitely try WMS’ Montezuma which has a similar theme. I also recommend you try Serengeti Diamonds by Lightning Box Games which has a similar bonus feature.
