Solar Temple Slot Review

The tropical jungles of central America form the backdrop to the action in the Solar Temple slot, an Aztec-themed game from Playson. There are some unusual extras on offer here. Look out for special flaming sun symbols. When these symbols land they edge the symbol position, turning them into Flaming Frames. All these edged positions turn wild at the end of each block of spins.

As you’ll discover in our Solar Temple review, these Flaming Frames can also bring multipliers into play. There’s also a free spins feature complete with sticky wilds. Bright and colourfully designed, there’s plenty going on in this 5 reel, 20 payline video slot. Read on to find out more.

Bonus Features in Solar Temple

Flaming Frames feature heavily in this Aztec adventure. Look out for progressive multipliers, multiple wild transformations as well as free spins with sticky wilds.

Flaming Frames feature

The action in Solar Temple is split into 10-spin blocks. Land a flaming sun symbol and it will set the symbol position alight to create a Flaming Frame.

On the 10th and final spin in a cycle, all the Flaming Frames transform into wild symbols. A new payout calculation then follows with all the new wild symbols in play. After this has happened, the reels revert to their original state with no Flaming Frames on display.

Progressive Multiplier feature

If you land a sun symbol in a position that is already a Flaming Frame, it brings a dynamic multiplier into effect. Each sun increases that multiplier by 1x. Any multipliers reset to 1x after the 10th spin in the cycle.

Free Spins feature

Land the scatter symbol (the ‘teocalli’ or Aztec pyramid) on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin and you’ll trigger the other main extra on offer in Solar Temple – the Free Spins feature.

You’ll then receive 10 free spins. The gameplay here is slightly different to the base game. Each time a sun symbol lands, it automatically transforms into a wild. These wilds are sticky and lock in position for any free spins you have left.

Solar Temple Slot RTP, Details & Wager Limits

The 5 reel, 4 row machine used in Solar Temple offers 20 paylines. Stakes starts at 20p per spin, rising to a maximum of £100 per spin for those players with extremely deep pockets.

The RTP in Solar Temple is 95.22% which puts it rather on the low side. The maximum win per spin is 20,000 x your stake which can be achieved from the multipliers.

Despite the fiery theme, Solar Temple isn’t quite as volatile as you might expect. The variance is in the medium, nudging into the high category. That’s high enough to keep things interesting but not massively explosive.

Click on the A button below the reels to set up autoplay. You’ll be able to amend the advanced settings here which include win and loss limits.

Everything we’ve written about the desktop version of Solar Temple applies to the mobile version too. The colourful design here is terrific. The bright, bold visuals work very nicely on small screen devices. The game interface is slightly different on mobile but all the things you can do with your computer you’ll be able to do with the mobile and tablet versions.

Solar Temple Theme - Audio and Design Features – bold, colourful visuals

We were very impressed with the design of Solar Temple. The imagery is bright and colourful but also sharply drawn and very detailed. That makes a very alluring combination.

Set against the verdant, jungle background, the reels in Solar Temple are edged in gold. Against the deep blue backdrop, you’ll find brightly coloured A to 10 royal values. Joining them are 4 more rewarding animal icons. Better still are the 2 face mask symbols which combine gold and a red.

The most rewarding standard symbol is the Aztec woman who sports a magnificent green dress and feather-filled headdress. She can spin in stacked formation. Land 2, 3, 4 or 5 of her in combination and you can look forward to an award of 0.1, 1, 2.5 or 10 x your total stake. Those same amounts are on offer from the wild symbol. This of course, can really come into its own following a 10-spin cycle.

Click on the i button at the bottom of the reels to access the paytable. This is very clear and provides all the relevant information you’ll need.

Solar Temple Review Summary – bold Aztec adventure packed full of extras

I really enjoyed Solar Temple. The first impressions from the colourful design were matched by the unusual gameplay. It’s not quite as high variance as we hoped but it’s volatile enough to keep things interesting.

The main attraction is the max 20,000 x stake win. The 10-spin cycles can get quite exciting, especially if you manage to land a decent number of Flaming Frames early in a block.

Free spins with sticky wilds is a solid combination. Combine the feature package with the impressive visuals and in Solar Temple, you have an impressive and very playable all-round performer. Another Playson favourite of mine is Mighty Africa: 4096 Ways where the number of ways expands to 31,104 which can give you 8,214 x stake wins on every free spin.

Solar Temple FAQs

What is the Solar Temple RTP?

The Solar Temple RTP rate is 95.22% which is a little disappointing. It’s certainly not the worst RTP figure you’ll see but it’s not among the best either. A shame as there’s plenty to like about Solar Temple in terms of design and gameplay.

🥇 Is Solar Temple volatile?

The variance in Solar Temple is in the medium to high range. It’s not super explosive but it’s fiery enough to keep things moving. You can win up to 20,000 x your stake with the multipliers though.

🎰 What are the Solar Temple Flaming Frames?

The action here takes place in cycles of 10 spins. Land a sun symbol and that position becomes a Flaming Frame. At the end of a 10-spin cycle, all the Flaming Frames are filled with wilds and a payout calculation follows. You can also bring multipliers into play which can really get things galloping along.

What is the Solar Temple bonus feature?

As well as the extra wilds on offer from the Flaming Frames, you could also land yourself free spins if the scatters fall nicely. Any sun symbol that lands automatically turns wild and then locks in position for any free spins you have left.
