The Wombat says: What you may not know, Wombat Fans, is that I am a big fan of Egyptology. So I was pleased as punch when this slot from Eyecon dropped into my Spinbox at Wombat Towers.
This game used to be called the Temple of Isis slot (that is the real name of the goddess), but they changed the name to Temple of Iris who I think was the tea lady in the British soap opera “Eastenders”, although she still looks like an Egyptian goddess in this slot.
The real Temple of Isis (which the game is inspired by) is dedicated to the Egyptian goddess Isis who is worshipped as mother of all gods as well as the goddess of magic and nature.
Eyecon is that Australian team behind games like the Lost Island slot and Fluffy Too and they have pulled out all of the stops on this one.
Will you be blessed with riches by the ancient Pharaohs? Or will this slot scare you off faster than an unravelling mummy in a sarcophagus? Let’s play and see…
About the Developer
The Temple of Iris slot was developed by Eyecon, the developer behind the Fluffy Favourites series of games and 99 Time slots. Originally a computer gaming company, Eyecon was founded in 1997 but moved over into the online casino world a few years later. They are also fellow Aussies which makes they pretty cool in our book…
Look and Feel
Usually, Eyecon isn’t known for the quality of its graphics, but they’ve done a decent job in the Temple Of Isis slot. There are more spectacular games in this genre (some of the Play’n GO ones for example), but it does the job.
All done up in Ancient Egyptian style, the reels are covered in Pharoah’s gold and set against a sun that’s slowly setting in the background of the sky, the stars and, of course, the pyramids. The reels are positioned in the middle, easily seen against a dark background and are divided up with traditional Egyptian purple and gold sticks.
Temple of Iris Slot Game Play
Temple of Iris slot has five reels, three rows and twenty-five pay-lines. You’ll find that this is a popular format for Eyecon games- just check out the little fella in the Irish Luck slot machine if you don’t believe me.
Your symbols on the reels include the standard 9, 10, J, Q & K playing cards as your lower value symbols, plus a whole host of Egyptian-themed objects like the Ankh cross, the Cat god Bastet, the ornate bright blue Eye of Horus icon and the lucky scarab beetle. These last two will pay out a pyramid-sized 38x your bet if you land five of them on a pay-line.
The priestess is the wild in this game (she’s the one who looks like she’s on holiday in the Bahamas), and this icon will do the usual job of substituting for all other symbols on the reels to make up extra winning combos for you.
Even better is that if the Priestess Wild forms part of a combination you’ll also scoop a 2x multiplier.
Meanwhile, the Pyramid symbol will act as the game’s Scatter.
Free Spins and Bonus Features
If you are looking for a game packed full of features then you would be better off firing up something like the Magic Ian slot machine from Blueprint Gaming (particularly if you are on a mobile).
Having said that, the Temple of Isis slot can be pretty generous with its Free Spins if you get the required number of scatters.
You set off the Free Spins Wombat fans by landing three or more of the Pyramid icons. When this happens, you will receive fifteen Free Spins, and best of all, all your payouts will be tripled!
This slot also gives you the chance to double your wins in the Gamble Bonus. It will pay double or nothing on your last win and all you have to do is choose correctly between the two options available.
You can play this Gamble Bonus up to five times but don’t forget that if you make a wrong guess, you will lose the lot. I only play it sparingly, it’s best to bank your wins IMO.
This feature is not available in all countries.
Temple of Iris Slot Conclusion
It’s hats off to Eyecon for making a slot that looks the part as well as offers some decent wins – and with those double wild pays and the 3x multiplier in the Free Spins round, ‘wins’ really are the name of the game. Get spinning!
Wombat score: 4/5
Iris? Isis? Either way, it’s a classic Eyecon game.
