The Temple Stacks Splitz mobile slot may look like a 243 ways to win game, but don’t be fooled – you may just spin to find 248,832 ways to win if you play long enough.
Megaways slot games are all the rage, but you have to have a license from BTG in order to be able to create a game with the mechanics.
Yggdrasil Gaming Studios are leaders, not followers, meaning that instead of renting mechanics, they made their own. We introduce you to the Temple Stacks Splitz slot game.
Set on a Jungle background, these temple gates are hard to crack, but if you do, you might just find all the gems in the Aztec kingdom.
How you ask? Well, by getting the free spins of course.
Because unlike a Megaways slot, all the reels here don’t split into a various number of rows. No. Instead, you only ever get one or two mystery reels which may split into anything from 3 to 9 identical symbols.
These mystery reels will all have the same symbol, and may wholly or partially cover the reel. It adds an element of surprise, but also a nice conformity as all the symbols are the same.
And there are only 10 symbols in this Temple Stacks Splitz slot game – 5 high paying ones and 5 low paying ones. In the base game, you don’t get huge wins, but enough to keep you going.
A good slot machine should make you feel like both lady luck and you have a little control. And if the base game is all about luck, the free spins gives you some choice.
Well, not the first time. The first time you can only choose for your mystery stacks to be split from 3 to 9 sections. On your second entry, you can choose for them to be split into 4 to 10 sections, the third time up to 5 to 11 sections and the final fourth time 6 to 12 sections.
The payoff? You have to play less free spins. But the good news is that almost always two full stacks of mystery symbols will show up to give you identical reels, sometimes even more.
It is brilliant to watch this Temple Stacks Splits slot work it’s magic, and we prefer it a little bit to games like Dragon’s Luck Megaways by Red Tiger or 88 Fortune Megaways by Shuffle Master. The visuals are clearer, the free spins simpler, and the payout more generous.
Though at 0.60 a spin, this is perhaps a little more expensive than some, so make sure you have the budget to last at least 100 spins and for the long haul.

Splitz Mystery Stacks: Mystery Stacks can appear on any reel in the base game or in the free spins. These will partially or wholly cover one or two reels. These Mystery Stacks split into 3 to 9 identical symbols in the base game and 3 to 12 symbols in the free spins.
These all turn into one and the same symbol. The max ways to win is 248,832 ways.
Respins: When 2 free spins symbols land on the reels, they turn into hybrid free spin/wild symbols and you get 1 re-spin of the reels without the wild/bonus symbol. Your hope, of course, is to get another free spin symbol and trigger the bonus games.
Free Spins: 3 or more free spin symbols trigger the free spins. There are four different free spins modes, which will unlock each time you unlock the bonus games. So you'll need to trigger the bonus games 4 times to get a choice between the following:
Mostly you'll get 3 scatter, which at each level gets you:
4 scatters will give you a range of 20 to 4 free spins, whilst 5 scatters will give you a range of 35 to 7 free spins.
You can re-trigger the free spin bonus round.
Yggdrasil's answer to the Megaways games, this Temple Stacks Splitz slot on mobile is volatile, hard to love, but hard to hate.
With such a huge max win and a great way of making mystery symbols interesting again, we know we'll be back again to try and dig this Aztec Adventure for all its gold.
In a way, we can see how we might prefer this version. It's simpler than the Megaways and clearer to see what you are going to get, although not necessarily less expensive.
This is a high variance machine, and you should budget accordingly - don't rush into it, use the minimum 0.60 bets if you need to, to build up your stack.
