Enter a hidden temple with tribal patterns and stone-carved symbols on the slot from NetEnt. The scenery and design are reminiscent of the ancient Mesoamerican era when people were building elaborate temples to worship the gods. Spin the reels on Temple of Nudges to experience symbol nudges and respins that can lead to multiple full screens of matching symbols and wins of up to 87.48x your stake on every spin or nudge.
Temple of Nudges is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 243 ways to win. Pays are awarded for adjacent symbols from left to right only. Spin the reels on any desktop or mobile device from 0.25 to 250 credits. The RTP of this low variance game is set at 96.03%. Use Autospin to play 10 to 1,000 consecutive spins with a range of option when the run should stop.
NetEnt never fails to produce on the visuals of a slot and is paying utmost attention to every detail for an authentic appearance. Temple of Nudges is set in a tropical forest scene with the game window placed within a stone structure, that is ornamented with native patterns and flanked on each side by a snake. The game logo on top will open up to display the win count. A rather serene soundtrack is mixed with the occasional hum of animals.
The pay table is short and simple. Temple of Nudges has eight regular pay symbols and nothing else. All pay symbols can appear super stacked. No wild, nor bonus symbols appear on the reels. Start off at the low end with native stone-carved temples, snakes, birds and suns. Don’t get too excited when it comes to the pays as they are coming in at a mediocre 0.12 times your stake for a single five of a kind. It doesn’t get much better for the high-value symbols – monkeys, sloths, anteaters and cougars, ranging from 0.24x to .36x your stake. Yes, you read that right.
The entire excitement on this slot comes from symbol nudges and respins. The Nudge feature triggers on every winning spin and will lock all reels before nudging them down by one row as a single block. New symbols will drop in place from the top to potentially create more winning combos. This continues until now wins occur after a nudge.
Excited already? It gets better when a symbol marked with ‘respin’ appears on the initial spin or after a nudge. The symbols in the winning combo are held while the remainder spins again to potentially land new matching symbols that can improve the held winning combination.
How do you rate such a slot in a fair manner? To be honest, it is tough when you are an avid slot player. NetEnt seems to oscillate constantly between producing blockbuster slots like Vikings or Scudamore’s Super Stakes and low variance drivel like Temple of Nudges that won’t stay for more than a day at the top of a casino lobby. Whilst we understand that they try to cover all types of players, it baffled us that they considered a win potential on a single spin of 87.48% to be exciting enough, even for the biggest low-variance fans. The good thing is that we are expecting Dead or Alive II to be released soon, which will surely please us more than this mediocre creation.
