Neither the graphics nor the music are in the magnificent category. But fortunately, the music can be muted and turned off completely and all that is really required of the graphics is to make the game understandable and exciting, and that makes Thunderkick to a great extent.
Symbols of Jaguar Temple.
As the observant reader might already suspect in the opening of this review, Thunderkick already suggests by name that this vending machine offers massive jaguar symbols. The Jaguars in the Jaguar Temple were decorated with block-like jaguar heads and these obviously pop up during the game and will cover 3 times 3 symbol spaces. However, this is not something new in slot machines for this has for example NetEnts Spinata Grande and Yggdrasil Gaming in the Big Blox . But even if it is not a novelty, it is understandable that all game developers will have an automaton with this feature represented in their game portfolio as well.
The symbols in the slot machine are first and foremost a golden jaguar head with ruby eyes. This is the best-paying symbol. The lower paying symbols are animal symbols and are something that looks like a fish, a lizard, a dragon and a bird. Then follow the symbols you know from the deck, but designed in gems. In addition, there is a scatter symbol and a wild symbol.
The Scatter is symbolized by a round symbol with the text Bonus Game on. In the center of the symbol is a round ruby. The Wild symbol is perhaps the most beautiful of them all. It starts as a panther head where the mouth of the animal is open and inside the mouth a human head appears in a kind of bluish tinge. The symbol can expand and show a human figure with a panther head as headgear. The word wild is written above the figure at chest height.
The golden jaguar head can act both as a regular symbol covering a regular symbol space, but it can also act as a block symbol covering 3 times 3 symbol spaces. This can happen at random during a spin, but it will always happen on the center wheels.
The Wild symbol is there as usual to help the player towards bigger winnings. A wild symbol replaces all other symbols, except for the scatter that takes you to the bonus game. In the bonus game, the wild symbol will expand to cover the entire wheel it appeared on.
If you spin 3 or more scatter symbols, the bonus game is activated. If you get two or more scatter in the bonus game, it will give you extra free spins. Three scatterers give you 10 spins in the main game, while four rewards you with 15 spins and five scatters give you the maximum number of spins on all fifteen pieces. If, on the other hand, you get scatter while playing in the bonus game, the proportions look like this: 2, 3, 4 or 5 scatter will give you 3, 10, 15 or 20 free spins respectively.
The bonus game itself takes place under the temple in front of a mysterious door. You can spin wild symbols in the bonus game and if you do, this will always expand to cover the entire reel. As mentioned a little further up, this block-like symbol will always and only appear on wheels 2, 3 and 4.
Our thoughts on Jaguar Temple.
Jagura Temple is a reasonably balanced slot game. It’s straightforward without ever being outstanding. It’s okay that it’s a medium variance slot machine and you can’t expect to win that often. But it always gets a little more exciting if there is a part on your screen and if almost any gains are slightly exaggerated. That being said, this is a personal opinion and not all players feel the same way. Plus, the game reaches a completely different level when you enter the bonus game.
You can play this and all the other Thunderkicks games at the casinos recommended above.
