Why are we so excited about a new Thunderkick slot machine? Well, mostly because we haven’t had a new one since their Yeti mobile game which came out… on the 6th of June.

And this new Jaguar Temple slot isn’t exactly just around the corner either. In fact, it will have been almost 3 months in between slot games for this Swedish gaming software provider.

So we have to ask? What’s going on over at Thunderkick? They’ve been a pretty steady “one game a month” type of provider for a while.

Did they just take a really long summer break and come back swinging in Autumn? Or is this the beginning of the end for this casino game studios?

What is the new Jaguar Temple slot game?

First, let’s take a look at this new slot machine coming out on the 19th of September. Maybe we’ll get a few answers here.

Jaguar Temple is a video slot with 5 reels and 20 pay lines. The mobile game promises mystery features, mega symbols, and a free spin bonus round with expanding wilds.

So far, so good. The cliff notes certainly sound like something we’d happily play, even if the theme, so far, has failed to impress.

It’s nice enough, to be fair, but lacks the imagination of games like the Wild Heist slot or even the pretty Pink Elephants machine.

Honestly? It looks like just any other jungle Aztec-like game out there: you have high card gemstones set in stone, you have animal totems as the high paying symbols, all set up in the top of a mountain in Peru.

We’ve seen it before, we’ll see it again, that’s not what will make this Thunderkick slot game stand out from the pack.

Give me the highlights of this new Android and iOS slot:

  • 5×3 reels 20 payline video slot
  • RTP: 96.1%
  • Win up to 2,045 times your bet
  • High paying Jaguar symbols pays all ways on an active payline
  • Giant 3×3 jaguar symbols in the base game and free spins
  • 3+ scatters trigger the free spin bonus
  • During free spins, mega symbols appear more often and wilds expand to cover the reel
  • Bonus rounds are easier to re-trigger

In short… getting more and more interesting the more we find out about it.

Is this Jaguar Temple slot good enough to play?

Two things caught our eye as we were looking at the specs of this new casino game for mobile.

The first is that giant Jaguar symbol that can show up at any point – and the reason we love it is that if it lands it will pay out, even if there are no jaguar symbols on reel 1 and 5.

Unlike, you know, any other mega symbol slots like Leprechaun Song by Pragmatic or Secrets of Atlantis slot by NetEntertainment.

The second thing is not just how much you can win, but those free spin bonus rounds where you get more giant symbols and expanding wilds. You also only need 2 scatters to get even more free spins.

In short, if they can keep the momentum going, we suspect this is going to be some high variance, high octane spins. ]

Was it worth a 3-month wait? Will we get more Thunderkick slots?

We’ve asked around, we’ve looked at their newsfeed, but we can’t find a reason why they didn’t create any new slot games between June and September.

Look, we’re not saying that you don’t need a break, but we know for a fact that whilst Thunderkick are certainly one of the smaller casino providers around, they are not (by far) the smallest.

Even Just For The Win, who only launched their first game this year, managed to get one slot a month over the summer holidays the last of which was only last week in the Rainbrew slot game.

So either they are preparing something big, or more likely, they’ve been dealing with gambling restrictions in Sweden now that they have announced that they will be licensing gambling in the country.

A little how in the UK you got to get your games through the UK Gambling Commission before you are allowed to play at UK online casinos.

Which is different from, say a Canada online casino player, who can play on pretty much any casino game with a good license like Malta or Gibraltar.

But we are just guessing here.

Will Jaguar Temple sweep us off our feet?

You know what? We will stay remarkably optimistic about this Jaguar Temple slot game, despite the unimaginative theme.

How come? Because despite their little hiatus, Thunderkick is one of our favourite independent game studios that keep on surprising us in the most delightful way.

Granted, they don’t always hit full marks. The Not Enough Kittens slot is basically the opposite of everything this Jaguar Temple is trying to be; it had low wins, boring gameplay, but a very fun imaginative theme.

If we have to choose, we’d rather take the fairly generic Aztec symbols, but the chance to win 2,045 times our bet, pretty much any day.

Want to see what great Thunderkick slots look like? We heartily recommend you try Birds on a Wire, Esqueleto Explosivo, Fruit Warp or even the Bork the Berzerk hack and slash edition.

All of which can be found at our favourite Thunderkick casino, the always brilliant Vera and John.
