The title for this slot game becomes clear as soon as one understands that the theme is all about Ancient Egypt. The ancient Egyptian were famous for their worship of cats. Endorphina has created a slots game that includes these worshipped animals, hieroglyphics, the stark ebony statues and Egyptian princesses in a slot machine and accompanied this with some delightful and detailed graphics and the opportunity to truly appreciate the art of slots play.
Temple Cats video slot machine has 5 reels set out in 3 rows. The pay lines are not overwhelming and are restricted to 10. The game settings, as per standard Enorphins directives are broad so that all players and budgets can be included. Coin values can be adjusted from 0.01 to 5, and players can stake up to 100 coins per pay line. The maximum bet per spin is therefore 1000 coins, dutifully allowing high rollers to partake of some white-knuckle slots play.
As with most Endorphina machines, Temple Cats slot contains a substantial jackpot. 500 000 coins is the lure that will entice all slots aficionados. This can be won by landing 5 of the Temple Cats temptresses, and tempting it certainly is.
Features, Décor and Reel Symbols
The Temple Cats casino slot reels feature two different black Egyptian cat statues, the well-known Ankh and Ra symbols, and an Egyptian princess as the higher paying symbols. Each time they are part of a winning combination these symbols become animated, adding to the attraction of the slots game.
The rest of the reel spaces are made up using the standard playing card symbols, and these constitute the lower value symbols. Slightly off-theme, these symbols do not become animated, but requiring only two to affect a win means that the Temple Cats slot is of low to medium volatility and many smaller wins are likely.
The Wild symbol in Temple Cats slot game is the twin cat statues. These function like a normal wild in replacing any symbol apart from the Scatter symbol to create winning combinations. The Scatter symbol is the glowing and magnificent ruby. In Temple Cats slot, 5 of these Scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels spells the start of the Free Spins game with 10 free spins being awarded.
During this Free Spins feature, players get to select another symbol which then gains the ability to become an Expanding Wild symbol and significantly increases winning possibilities. Like in a lot of machines, the free spins cannot be re-triggered.
The Endorphina Gamble Feature
Temple Cats slot machine features the heavily accentuated Take Risk gamble feature. After every winning spin, players can wager the win and attempt to double it by entering a second screen game where they are dealt 5 playing cards, before one is turned over. Players selecting one of the face-down cards that is higher than the face-up card double their win. An incorrect guess, however, forfeits the win altogether.
Temple cats slot is therefore an attractive game with a reasonably high return to player of 96%, excellent graphics and an overall description of being exotic. The dashboard is simple and effective, with a theme that although far from original, is nevertheless beautifully applied.
