Thai Temple is a slot that has 5 reels and 15 paylines. It was released by Casino Technology. A top jackpot of 10,000 coins is in this slot and there are four different progressive jackpots offered. There are a lot of Thai symbols featured which includes a monk, a tiger, Buddha, and dragons.
Even though this theme is not traditional, the style of the game is still simple and there are not any bonus games. There also is not any wild or scatter symbols that can add interest and a free spins round. However, at least with this slot there is some originality in it. There are not many slot games out there that has a themed based around Thai.
Japanese and Chinese themes are more common when it comes to Asian cultures being used for slot themes. However, there has been an increasing popularity with Thailand becoming a holiday destination. With that being the case, you can assume that there are some slot payers out there becoming more familiar with the culture.
The Golden Temple- Since there is not any real animation in this slot, the theme is very dependent on the background, symbols, and the intro. The style of the animation is 2D and it is brightly colored. Also, it is emphasized by the black background. Even though the symbols in this game are based on Thai culture, there is an error. The error is that the Monk symbol has a beard. In real life, Thai Monks do not wear beards. The beard makes the Monk look more like a Japanese person than a Thai one. Outside of the Monk symbol, there is a gold dragon, a temple, a golden Buddha, a tiger, a dog, and a Thai lady.
The wild in the game is the Temple, and the Golden Buddha is the scatter symbol. This scatter symbol gets the free games feature (meaning free spins) started up. However, there is much more that could have been done here with the theme. Like for instance, there could have been flowers, traditional dancers, Muay Thai boxing, and a lot of other elements of the Thai culture. There even could have been a white sandy beach being incorporated in the background. The reason is because a lot of people associate a white sandy beach with Thailand since it is a popular holiday destination.
The Features- The main features in this game is the wild symbol and the scatter symbol. The wild symbol can appear on any reel, and it replaces all symbols except for the scatter. When it is part of a winning combination, the winnings will get doubled. If you are able to land five of these symbols on one payline, then the progressive jackpot will get triggered.
If you land at least three Golden Buddha scatter symbols, the free games feature is triggered. You will receive an award of 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier. Guess what? This can be retriggered if 3 golden buddhas during the spins. You can receive up to 165 free spins if you retrigger the round over and over again. Also, there is a cash prize of 500x. Prizes for symbols goes from two to 10,000 coins.
Final Thoughts About The Thai Temple Slot- When it comes to the format, it is simple. There is only two symbols that you need to keep an eye out for, and there are not any bonus games. There is just only a free spin round, which is basically a break from the regular spinning action. Even though the theme is a good choice, it has a lot of flaws. The artwork featured in this game could have been much better and could have had more interesting features that would make it more fun to play. This slot game had so much potential to be much better than what it is. It is unfortunate that a slot with a nice theme such as this one does not have anything to make it exciting. Casino Technology could have done a whole lot more with a unique theme like this. Like already mentioned, there has been an increase of travel to Thailand. Since this is the case, it is very unfortunate that Casino Technology could not capitalize off of this with Thai Temple. If you like to play slots that are very simple, and okay with playing ones that do not really offer any bonus rounds then you would probably still like this one. However, if you prefer to play slots that do offer a lot of bonuses then more than likely you are not going to enjoy this one. More than likely, new slot players would get bored of playing this slot game real quickly. Hopefully next time if Cayteno Gaming were to develop another slot with this type of theme, there will be more exciting elements to it.
