Oh-oh we’re going to the temple and we’re gonna get ri-i-i-ich!
Temple of Wealth is another offering from Play’n GO as part of their wealth trilogy, the other two games being Beast of Wealth and the more recent Celebration of Wealth. Like the other two, this is a progressive jackpot game with four great features including two bonus games!
Temple of Wealth’s design strikes an elegant balance between simplicity and opulence, with its combination of clean lines and bold colours for the background, coupled with rich, intricate symbol designs.
Inspired by Chinese culture and symbols of luck, Temple of Wealth will take you on a journey to a time gone by. The music only adds to the atmosphere of being lost in an ancient Chinese temple, surrounded by the wealth of the ages.
The highest paying symbol is the God of Wealth to whom the temple is dedicated, followed by a Fu baby holding a Chinese ingot or yuanbao, then a gold koi statue, a yuanbao on its own, and three gold coins on a red tassel.
We then have the lower-paying symbols: A, K, Q, J, 10, and 9. The scatter is a yin-yang symbol, and the wild is an image of red doors with a blue and gold door arch. In addition to the usual symbols, we also have a mystery symbol – a golden roaring dragon head which has the power to transform into any of the other symbols (except the scatter) to land you some big wins! The final four symbols represent the progressive jackpots:
Temple of Wealth has some truly great features, including a gold streak which will appear at random across any one of the five reels. If a wild symbol pops up on a golden reel, it triggers the jackpot shell game, where you’re faced with a grid of 12 Temple coins to turn over until you succeed in getting three of the same symbol.
The Temple coins flip over to reveal symbols representing the four jackpots – mini, minor, major and grand; whichever you pick three of is the jackpot you’ll win.
Not content with just awarding you free spins, Temple of Wealth adds another layer of intrigue, with a bonus game involving the roaring dragon mystery symbol, which can only be accessed through the free spins feature. Three scatters will win you free spins, and you get to decide how many free spins you want and your odds for each spin. You have a choice of six different spin options before you dive in:
No. of mystery symbols
Randomly picks a number of free spins and mystery symbols
The more spins, the fewer mystery symbols and the fewer chances to win. So why might you want more mystery symbols? The mystery symbols stick to the reel when they land and expand to fill the entire reel; they then all flip over and reveal the same symbol underneath. The more mystery symbols the more chances you have of winning big!
There are 243 ways to win, and paylines are awarded on adjacent symbol combinations from left to right except scatters which pay in any way they land.
Play’n Go games, including Temple of Wealth, are to be found on several online casinos available in South Africa.
Temple of Wealth is available to play on mobile, desktop or laptop. It is supported on iOS, Windows, Linux and Android. Recommended browsers include Safari, Chrome, Edge and Firefox.
As a progressive slot game, Temple of Wealth demands lengthy periods of game play. And with its high volatility, a medium-risk approach may be best here to help you maximise the potential for big jackpot wins while keeping your risk to an acceptable loss level.
Try setting a time or budget limit to game play to avoid breaking the bank while giving yourself the best chance to win.
Temple of Wealth delivers, big time. Alongside its two companion games, these form a mini-oeuvre for Play’n GO – a wonderful showcase of their ingenuity, variability and design prowess. This is a game well worth playing.
