Lost Temple won’t all be plain sailing for you though. You’ll have to overcome some trials and tribulations while you’re making your way through the building. And that’s not just the snakes and scorpions either. Fortunately, Lightning Box has made sure to incorporate one or two special features to assist you with finding the gold. First of all, you’ll see that there’s an icon of a beautiful woman. She is your explorer companion and will work as a wild symbol. As such, she will stand in for all other icons on the reels in order to create winning combinations. The only exception to this particular rule comes in the shape of the game’s scatter.
And speaking of the scatter icon, this is the image of the temple with the word, ‘BONUS’ written across it. Scatter symbols can show up in any position on the reels and still pay out a reward. For example, five coming into view anywhere will pay out up to $10,000. And whenever two, three or four show up in scattered positions across the screen, the Hold ‘n Spin phase begins. This sees the paying scatter symbols transform the reel into a locked offering. The remaining unlocked reels re-spin up to three times. If you manage to bring more scatter icons into view on the remaining reels, these will also lock in place. Should you manage to lock all five reels into position, you will see the Temple Steps bonus begin!
The Temple Steps bonus feature can also trigger if five scatter icons show up during the base game anywhere. In this round, you need to pick a step from the highlighted level. This reveals either a red arrow pointing right or a green upwards pointing arrow. The first of these ends the pick round and begins the freespins round. The green arrow moves you up to the next level for additional picks. The higher up the pyramid that you make it, the more freespins you will win at the end. Six freespins are available on the bottom level, while up to 12 freespins can be won in total. The win multiplier will also increase with every level that you advance through.
