The latest Microgaming slot machine to be announced is Temple of Tut, an Ancient Egypt game that was designed for the larger developer by a smaller studio, called Just For the Win. It’s obviously not going to win prizes for its theme, not in terms of uniqueness at least, but hopefully it compensates with the rest of its features.
You are looking at a 10-line game, with 5 reels, which will pay as much as $6,250 for single combinations or up to 62,500 in its best possible spins. For its features, the game will rely on the wild symbol, on Super Reels, stacked symbols and free spins.
Betting and Prizes
Betting starts from as little as $0.10, enough to cover 10 lines obviously. Its bets can be increased significantly if it is necessary, to as much as $250 even, in which case a line bet would rise up to $25.
With jackpots of 250x announced for its best wins, you can hope to get paid as much as $6,250 for a single win, if it’s the right one. Considerably higher rewards are apparently possible, even $62,500 being available if you get extremely lucky. As for its RTP, it has been announced at 96.01%.
One thing to point out in the case of Temple of Tut is the ability to form its combinations by starting either from the right or the left side of the screen. You still get only 10 active lines though.
While playing this game, during paid spins, you will get at random a feature called Super Reels. It involves 1 to 5 reels, which are transformed into variants covered with 50% stacked wilds basically. It’s not a very complicated feature, but it can be immensely profitable thanks to the large number of wilds that are available.
There is another feature inside that I’d recommend you watch out for. With scatter symbols appearing at random on the reels, three or more visible at a time, you can get anywhere between 8 and 30 free spins. Every single free spin gets the Super Reels active, so there is a huge chance of getting wilds on all reels.
There is also the opportunity to retrigger free spins, provided that 2+ scatters show up somewhere in view. 2 to 30 additional free spins can be won, only once, giving you as many as 60 free spins total once this feature triggers.
Theme & Design
For the theme of this game, the designer chose a simple topic, which doesn’t overburden them. They have King Tutankhamun in the main role apparently, with his temple being the location for this story. There are symbols which involve the Ankh, several gods (Horus, Bastet, Eye of Ra), along with adventurers. They went with the image of the pharaoh for the wild feature.
It’s not a very elaborate or modern design, more of a cartoon style game with a simple look, but at least it has only proper symbols on its reels. Overall, I can’t say that I was particularly impressed with what I saw here, so it’s not the design that will make it appealing for most players, but the name behind it and its features might do that.
Temple of Tut looks like just one of the many Ancient Egypt slot machines, not a game to stand out in a major way in the crowded category that it is in.
