Temple of Nudges

One of the interesting aspects of having so many different slots here at 32RED is that it means there’s something for everyone. And Temple of Nudges by NetEnt is a case in point.

You’ll find other games here that have lots of bonus features, rich storylines and somewhat complex themes but…this is not one of them.

And that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

Just like a beginner when it comes to playing golf wouldn’t necessarily want to be playing at the famous and equally treacherous Augusta National course in Atlanta, Georgia, soon into their apprenticeship as an amateur golfer, a player new to the world of online slots may feel equally overwhelmed if they were exposed to some of the more complicated slots out there where there’s simply too much going on.

So welcome to Temple of Nudges, a slot with two pretty straightforward bonus features and low volatility. The latter means that unlike some other slots, it’s unlikely that there will be massive swings to your bank over the course of say, a 30-minute session. It’s not likely that you’ll have periods where you go 10-15 spins without a win but then again, it’s also not that likely that you’ll secure huge wins. That’s just the nature of a slot with low volatility and precisely why Temple of Nudges is tailor-made for the novice slots player who wants to have fun without taking huge risks.

All that said, it’s not solely a case of just spinning the wheels and hoping for the best, so here’s what you need to know about it.

The basics

To the left of the Spin button, you can select the Level (1-10) and just to the right of it, choose the Coin Value. Across the two, that’s the stake that you’re playing each spin for.

If you’re feeling a little lethargic, you can choose to bring the Autoplay function into play. It means that you can choose to play between 10 and 1000 (!) spins without having to hit the ‘Spin’ button every time. Just sit back, have a cup of tea and watch those reels spin!

There are 243 different ways to win in this slot. Now, that doesn’t necessarily mean that this is a slot that’s far more generous than other slots that ‘only’ have 25 or 30 paylines; it just means that there’s more variety in terms of the ways in which you can win.

A win happens when matching symbols appear on adjacent reels from left to right. There are eight different symbols featured on the reels, with the blue symbol that somewhat resembles a piece out of the classic video game Tetris, the one with the lowest value.

In any case, you need to get three symbols on adjacent reels for a payout and the more of them you get, the better. Top of the food chain- relevant seeing as this is a slot featuring animals you’d find in a jungle- is the Red Puma, which may not necessarily be an animal that you’d actually come across in the wild but is certainly present here. Getting five of those means that you’ll see your stake multiplied by nine times, which is a pretty good return for an animal that may, or may not, actually exist!

Respin Feature

This bonus feature is triggered when the re-spin overlay appears over a symbol during a winning spin. When the re-spin occurs, all symbols that match the winning symbol will remain in place, so you have increased odds of hitting a generous prize.

In other words, the reels that are held are already good ones just waiting to be topped up by the ones that about to come your way via the re-spun reels,

All of which means that when you see that ‘Respin’ message pop, you can put the kettle on and have a little celebratory dance because the odds are that you’re going to get a nice little win come your way.

Nudge Feature

If you’ve only ever played slot machines at online casinos rather than the old school ‘fruities’ that were such a staple of ‘pub -life’ back in the 80s, 90s and early noughties in the UK, you may not be that accustomed to the concept of the nudge.

Whilst you were sipping your pint at the bar, you’d see punters bending down to see which reels were worth nudging up or down in an attempt to secure some wins on that middle reel. No doubt a few bags of peanuts or pork scratchings were consumed in the process and that’s fine; that’s what a visit to the pub was all about.

And nudges certainly play their part right here in Temple of Nudges. It’s not rocket science: the clue is in the name! But how do they work, we hear you cry!

Well, whenever there is a winning combination on the reels, the Nudge comes into play. After the win count up, the reels move one symbol down and if there is a winning combination, the win is counted up again. So, enjoy that cup of tea, bite into your biscuit and watch the action unfold as only good things will come your way from hereon.

The Nudge feature is activated for as long as there is a winning combination on the reels. Which means that the more of those that there are, the better.

It’s a little bit similar to those cascading reels that one sees on other NetEnt slots such as Gonzo’s Quest where once that first win is secured. You can just relax in your seat/favourite couch spot and watch those additional wins roll in.

Final Thoughts

So that’s your two-minute guide to Temple of Nudges, a slot that’s simple enough to appeal to the novice gambler among you but also interesting enough to catch the eye of the more experienced gambler who realises that big but infrequent wins to your bank are neither good for your heart, nor your patience.

And if you’re still sitting on the fence as regards whether to play this game, remember that it’s made by NetEnt, who have set the standard over the last couple of decades when it comes to making the very best slots on the market and have no limits when it comes to finding increasingly new and entertaining ways to provide varied, innovative and pleasing ways to provide games that everyone loves. If jungle-themed slots are your thing, then Gonzo’s Quest is something of a good starting point, while King Kong Cash is another slot that embraces the ‘welcome to the jungle’ theme that we all love so much.
