- A new slot that uses the splitz mechanic from Yggdrasil
- Acts as a competitor to the popular Megaways
- A good slot and I look forward to seeing more with splitz
Temple Stacks Splitz slot from Yggdrasil is a game that uses their new splitz mechanic, essentially a competitor to the popular Megaways mechanic developed by Big Time Gaming and seen on many slots. It’s quite similar in some ways, offering lots of ways to win, but can it compete? Read on to find out more.
Before we get onto that, let’s look at some of the basics like the design. They’ve gone with an Aztec sort of look here which I’m not a huge fan of, but the graphics are excellent and it’s not the worst design I’ve ever seen. There are 5 reels with 3 rows, but as we’ll soon see, the number of ways to win can certainly change. You need to get a win from left to right using the base symbols. These are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- Blue, Green, Purple, Orange or Red Fossil (lowest value)
- Blue, Green, Purple or Orange Gem
- Red Gem (highest value)

Temple Stacks Splitz Slot Bonuses and Features
Splitz Mystery Stacks. The splitz mechanic in this slot makes it quite unique but it works very simply. Mystery stacks can appear on the reels, splitting into up to 12 symbols, all identical. These will then turn into the same random symbol, as you’d expect from a mystery symbol, which cannot be the scatter or hybrid symbols.
Respin Feature. The hybrid symbol in the game serves multiple purposes. When 2 of them land, it acts as a wild symbol, substituting for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the free spins symbol. This then triggers a respin, with the hybrid wilds remaining in place. However, when 3 or more land, it serves as a free spins symbol to trigger the main bonus.
Free Spins Bonus. This is triggered from 3 or more free spins symbols. Landing 3 will award free spins and a small cash reward, 4 will give you free spins and a larger cash reward, while 5 gives you free spins and a much more generous cash reward. The bonus has different levels, a new one unlocked each time you trigger the bonus. There are steel free spins, bronze free spins, silver free spins and gold free spins. The steel level offers 3-9 splitz mystery stacks, the bronze offers 4-10, silver 5-11 and gold 6-12. This means the steel level offers up to 59,049 ways to win, while the gold offers up to 248,832 ways to win. You can also retrigger the bonus by landing more free spins symbols.
There are some impressive wins to be had with Temple Stacks Splitz slot from Yggdrasil. In fact, you can get up to 25,000x your stake on a single spin if you’re lucky. The key to success is the mystery stacks which give the game a bit of a Megaways feel to it, but obviously it works a bit differently. It’s clear that they’re trying to go in a slightly different direction from Megaways, but keep things similar due to the Megaways’ enormous popularity. I think it works pretty well, but I’m not sure if it’s quite as good. I look forward to seeing more slots of theirs use this mechanic to make a better decision then. In the meantime, you can see more of their other slots here.
