- Payouts are fairly low but occur quite frequently
Temple Of Nudges slot from NetEnt is one of their latest games and an unusual one because of the features it has to offer. It’s fairly simple so don’t worry, in fact, let’s take a closer look and see what’s on offer.
Starting with the design, it’s is fairly simple. There’s little in the way of any background, and the attention is solely on the reels which are carved out of stone. It’s a pretty common theme this Aztec/Mayan one, but the graphics are nice and overall it’s not bad. You have 5 reels in total with 3 rows, and these offer 243 ways to win in total. Simple spin the reels to try and get a win using the base symbols. These are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- Blue, Green, Yellow or Red Shape (lowest value)
- Blue, Green or Yellow Animals
- Red Animal (highest value)
Temple Of Nudges Slot Bonuses and Features
Nudge Feature. You can’t put the word nudge into the title of a slot and not have nudges as part of the features. It just wouldn’t be right. Fortunately, NetEnt haven’t been so cruel so this feature focuses on exactly that. Every time you get a winning combination on the reels, the feature will activate. After the win count up, the reels will move down one position. If that then creates another winning combination, the win is counted up again. So long as there are continuous winning combinations, this will continue. It’s simple, yes, but actually quite effective and most importantly unique.
Respin Feature. There is only one other feature in the game which revolves around respins. IT’s triggered when a resin overlay appears on a symbol during a winning spin. All symbols of the same type as the winning symbol will remain in place becoming sticky and the other symbols will respin. Hopefully, you’ll land more of the same symbol and improve your win.
Temple Of Nudges slot from NetEnt is first and foremost a low variance game. NetEnt call it medium variance, but I have to disagree. Wins will be fairly frequent, but also pretty low and a far cry from others which can offer thousands of times your stake on a single spin. Some people don’t mind that, but I know many do and I personally like to have a nice payout to look forward to. The features are unusual because, as you may have noticed, there’s no Free Spins Bonus. This is definitely strange but does not make it a bad slot. I actually like the fact that NetEnt have done something different here, and nudges are seldom seen in slots these days despite the fact that they can work really well. Furthermore, they can be combined with the respins to generate quite a few wins. In short, Temple Of Nudges slot is an interesting game that does its own thing and I’m grateful for that, it makes it refreshing and fun to play. For me, I would have liked to have seen some bigger payouts on offer, but not everyone wants that so I can’t really knock them for it. If you’re tired of playing seemingly repetitive games and want something different, this is a great choice so be sure to give it a go. You can check out some of their other slots here too.
