Special Features

The first feature to highlight is that this game features a massive 243 ways to win! There is no payline structure here as to form a win in this game you just need to land matching symbols anywhere on adjacent reels starting from the leftmost to the rightmost. With over 243 different ways to create wins, you will be leaving the jungle with a nice cash prize in no time at all!

Temple of Nudges does not feature any Wild or Scatter symbols or even a Free Spins mode. Instead, it features Nudge and Respin bonus features. To trigger the Nudge feature, all you simply have to do is form a winning combination on the reels. When this happens, then the reels will move 1 symbol down to give you another chance of landing an additional win on the reels. This process continues for as long as there is a winning combination on the reels.

The Respin bonus feature is also activated when you form a win on the reels but only triggers if a ‘Respin’ overlay image appears on a symbol. During this feature, all symbols of the same type as the winning symbol will remain in place on the reels while all of the other symbols respin at the same time. Only 1 Respin is awarded unless you land another symbol displaying the ‘Respin’ overlay image in which case the feature will trigger once more. The nice thing about both Nudge and Respin bonus features is that they can combine together on the reels to further enhance your chances of landing a jungle-sized fortune on the reels.

Theme and Graphics

Temple of Nudges features beautiful vibrant graphics as it takes place in a jungle setting in front of an ancient Aztec temple with snake carvings adorning the opposite sides of the reels. Symbols are superbly designed and consist of a variety of colourful stone carvings displaying images of Sloths, Monkey, Jaguars, Armadillos, Suns, Birds, and Temples. The animations are crisp as symbols speed up and down the reels and shine brightly when part of a winning combination. It is particularly pleasing when you trigger the Nudge feature as symbols slowly move downwards off the reels to help you land even bigger wins.

The music features a calm and tranquil soundtrack with lots of animal noises in the background. It fits in really well with the Jungle theme.

Our Verdict on Temple of Nudges

Top software provider NetEnt produced this slot and it's a fun and enjoyable jungle adventure. The graphics are outstanding in this game with a wonderful matching soundtrack as well as a handful of exciting bonus features. Granted, there are no Wilds, Scatters, or Free Spins here but the Nudge and Respin features ensure there is lots of fun to be had. Both features trigger quite often when playing and I was able to rack up a few decent wins in a row at times thanks to the Nudge and Respin features combining to great effect. The top prize for this game is a reasonable 2,187X your stake which can be won on every spin. Variance-wise, I found this slot to be Medium so you will find that wins are evenly balanced the more you play.
