Join a jungle explorer on the hunt for hidden riches in Temple of Secrets, a 5 reel, 50 payline slot from Novomatic. This rainforest adventure comes with a bonus feature that awards 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier. That multiplier increases with every re-trigger, up to a maximum of 10x. You’ll also have a shot at winning a potentially massive progressive jackpot prize. Play, on all devices, from between 50p and £100 per spin.

Novomatic’s budding adventurer takes a break from hunting for the antiquities of Egypt and instead heads to central American for his latest quest. With a jungle and temple in the background, he reels include A to 9 playing cards alongside a gold icon, a green jewel, a pyramid-style temple, a big cat and a monkey. Land 5 of the wild animals in a row and you’ll pocket an award that’s equal to 8 times your total stake.

The stubbly explorer is the game’s wild – he can land fully stacked on all reels and replaces all other symbols apart from the scatter. Land 5 of these in combination and you’ll pocket 20 times your total bet. The explorer is the key to unlocking the progressive jackpot too – fill all 20 symbol positions with the wild and you’ll win the big one.

The other main attraction in Temple of Secrets is the Bonus feature – to trigger it, you’ll need to land 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels on the same spin. As well as a prize equal to 1, 10 or 100 times your total stake, you’ll also get 10 free spins complete with a 2x multiplier which doubles all payouts.

If you manage to re-trigger more free spins by landing 3 or more scatters, you’ll get another 10 free spins. This time, the multiplier increases to 3x and all payouts are trebled. With each subsequent re-trigger, the multiplier increases by 1, up to a maximum of 10x. This means you can get up to 90 free spins with the last 10 free spins subject to a huge 10x multiplier.

Temple of Secrets is a typical Novomatic slot – the design is average at best. The visuals aren’t especially detailed and the generic soundtrack offers the developer’s standard ZX Spectrum style bangs and bleeps. This is no thing of beauty.

What makes Novomatic slots so playable is the potentially explosive action and Temple of Secrets is no exception. This is an extremely volatile game – you can spend plenty of time exploring and come away with little in the way of treasure. Get lucky with the free spins and multipliers though and you can strike gold in no time.

If you enjoy Novomatic’s usual blend of simple gameplay and sky high variance, then uncovering what’s hidden in the Temple of Secrets can be an exciting proposition. I also recommend you try Jungle Explorer which has a similar theme.
