Temple Tumble 2 Dream Drop: Slot Overview
It’s interesting how one day we can be firmly committed to goals or values that seem unassailable, only to find the need to reassess them as time drifts by. Examples might be those against bringing in more children to the planet, who later feel the desire to procreate once they’re married, or lifelong omnivores who suddenly no longer want to eat their animal brethren. This change of heart scenario leads us to software provider Relax Gaming, where, according to a recent press release, the idea of producing a ‘classic legacy type jackpot was off the table.’
However, like Eddie Vedder said, ‘hearts and thoughts they fade‘, and Relax Gaming has had a change of heart, leading them to develop Temple Tumble 2 Dream Drop. Not just a sequel, but the first game in their Dream Drop Jackpots series. Dream Drop offers five progressive prizes with an enticing must-win element – the largest, the Mega, maxes out at €10,000,000. As to the rest of Temple Tumble 2, extras include tumbles and three free spin bonus round options.
An intro clip sets the mood, and it seems the adventuress couple separated in Cluster Tumble have been reunited and are on their way to the next escapade. Their destination is a huge stone Egyptian-ish structure in the desert, where the game’s 6×6 grid has been wedged. The couple pull poses and celebrate wins in the corner of the screen, and while the graphics are top-notch, they aren’t quite as striking as Cluster Tumble or Temple Tumble Megaways were.
Hit the play button and anywhere from 1 to 6 active symbols appear on each reel. Ways to win therefore alter, topping out at 46,656. Numbers are critical in a game like this, and outside the jackpot values, others make for interesting reading as well. The RTP is a consideration, generating a value of 94.8%, with 12% going to the Jackpot Contribution, while volatility is rated 4 out of 5. The game is playable on any device where stakes range from 20 p/c to £/€100, and the larger the bet, the greater the chance of triggering a jackpot win.
Regular wins occur when 3-6 matching symbols land left to right from the leftmost side and trigger cascades when they hit. Low pay symbols are J-A tiles, worth 0.2x the bet for six of a kind, then there are three gem symbols, skulls, and snakes as higher pays, worth 0.3 to 1x the bet for six of a kind. Each adventurer has their own wild symbol, though both do the same thing, which is to substitute all regular pay tiles.
At the start of each spin, 3-24 of the symbols that drop in are valueless blocks. When winning ways are removed from the board by the cascade feature, any vertically or horizontally adjacent blocks are destroyed as well. If all blocks are destroyed in a game round, then 6 free spins are awarded. During the feature, if all blocks and symbols are removed, +3 extra spins are awarded. For the bonus round, players can pick one of three modes:
- Multipliers & Extra Spins – Multiplier Blocks contain multipliers of x1-x3 which increase the win multiplier when destroyed. Spin Blocks add 1, 2, or 3 additional spins when destroyed.
- Persistent Wild & Fire Transform – Persistent Wild Blocks become wild symbols with five lives when destroyed. Fire Transform Blocks become a pay symbol that then transforms 1 symbol type in the next cascade into its type.
- Combined – contains Multiplier Blocks, Extra Spin Blocks, Persistent Wilds, and Fire Transform Blocks.
