Lost Temple (August 2011) is an archeology-themed game made by Lightning Box Games. Lost Temple is among the three Lightning Box Games’ slots under the Temple line; the other two slot games are Moon Temple and Temple Cash Frogs n Flies. Lightning Box Games’ Lost Temple is different from Merkur Gaming’s Lost Temple. It has countless rival games, including Thai Temple by Playtech/Casino Technology, Big Time Gaming’s Temple of Fortune, and Temple of Iris from Eyecon.
Lost Temple is centered on an abandoned temple located in the heart of the Cambodian jungle; the ruins of the real-life Jungle temples, located in Angkor Thom District, Cambodia, inspired Lost Temple. The players virtually explore the temple, and are rewarded with treasures as long as they match two, three, four, or five symbols.
Lost Temple Game Characteristics
Lost Temple has a 5X4 grid and 1024 winning ways. Its symbols are comprised of: two special and eleven ordinary symbols. The special symbols are: a “Bonus” Lost Temple ruins; and a beautiful “Substitute”/Wild touring woman.
The regular symbols are: an old treasure chest overflowing with golden coins, a heap of golden coins, three gemstones, a scorpion, a king cobra, a gem-encased red A with twining vines, a gem-encased blue K with twining vines, a gem-encased purple Q with twining vines, a gem-encased green J with twining vines, a golden-brown 10 with twining vines, and a golden-yellow 9 with twining vines.
Lost Temple has two credit values only: $0.01 and $0.02. However, these values are compulsorily multiplied by 40 credits; there are five optional bet multipliers namely 1X, 2X, 3X, 4X, and 5X. As such, the bet size is: $0.40/$0.80 times the bet multiplier. These are the Lost Temple’s stakes. Selecting X1 multiplier: $0.40 (minimum bet size) and $0.80. Using X2 multiplier: $0.80 and $1.60. Using X3 multiplier: $1.20 and $2.40. With X4 multiplier: $1.60 and $3.20. With X5 multiplier: $2.00 and $4.00 (maximum bet size).
The Lost Temple has attractive payouts, although it depends with the bet multiplier selected. Based on the X5 bet multiplier, these are the highest regular payouts for two, three, four, and five combinations, respectively. The “Bonus” Lost Temple ruins offer X400, X1000, X2000, and X10000; the treasure chests pay X50, X2500, X5000, and X10000; 9s offer X10, X25, X200, and X500.
For the symbols requiring three, four, and five combinations: the golden coins pay X750, X1250, and X3750; the three gemstones offer X500, X1000, and X2500; scorpions pay X250, X500, and X1000; the king cobras pay X250, X500, and X1000; either As or Ks pay X25, X250, and X750; either Qs or Js or 10s pay X25, X200, and X500.
Two, three, or four “Bonus” Lost Temple symbols activate the so-called “Hold N Spin” feature, whereby the temple ruins winning combinations are converted into old padlocks. When padlocks show up in the entire grid, it ushers in the “Temple Steps Bonus” (all about scaling the temple’s staircase) and, subsequently, challenge levels; as much as 12 free games and X8 winnings multiplier can be won.
Betting $4.00 maximum bet can trigger the five “Bonus” temples (X10000), the gateway to X8 winnings multiplier; therefore, the non-progressive jackpot is $320,000. The Lost Temple software is good, the sounds portray a lively jungle, and the graphics are mostly olde worlde.
