Templar Tumble: Slot Overview

Developer Relax Gaming has found spiritual inspiration from the middle ages to theme another game in their 'Tumble' range of slots. This one, Templar Tumble, turns to the world of chivalry, tasking the mysterious Knights Templar to carry the action. This decision provided a ton of great imagery to draw on, which Relax has put to good use while bolting on several interesting features such as tumbles, free spins and symbol transformations. It might come across as a sort of Megaways imitator at first glance, but by the end Templar Tumble differentiates itself, becoming a highly playable game in the process.


The Knights Templar were formed in Jerusalem in 1119 to protect pilgrims travelling through the Holy Land. To begin with, they were nine impoverished knights, but the order quickly grew in wealth and power before getting a little too successful, eventually ruffling the wrong feathers. By the 14th century, most Templars were arrested, disbanded, or burned as heretics. In Templar Tumble we meet them at the height of their powers, where the action plays out on a 6x7 grid located outside a gleaming medieval structure somewhere in the Middle East under a bright blue sky. The game has a great look, delicately light, matching the semi-religious nature of the theme, and an inviting one at that.


The other side of the Templars was battling, with this particular skirmish taking place on your mobile, tablet or desktop computer, offering bets from 20 p/c to £/€200 per spin are available. Each spin drops a mixture of live symbols or blocker tiles into the grid; the precise number varies every time. Each reel has 7 positions, so the more live symbols means more ways to win - up to 117,649 at the most. Despite Templar Tumble not being a Megaways title, you will no doubt notice a number of similarities. Another is the fact winning combinations trigger a reaction/tumble feature, leading to some impressively lengthy win chains.


Highly volatile, the game dishes up a fair share of dead spins, but the win rate is high enough to keep you engaged. Theoretical RTP is a bit above average on 96.29%, so overall the math model feels well balanced. Wins are created when matching symbols, regardless of row position, land from left to right starting at the leftmost reel. Symbol values aren’t massive on their own, though they can build decent totals when landing in numbers. They start with four glowing low pays in blue, green, purple and red, followed by three medieval symbols - trees, eagles and lions. The final two are a ring and a helm, where six of a kind is worth 1.2-2 times the stake. The wild symbol helps complete combinations by replacing any of the pay symbols, while also having an extra ability, covered next.


Templar Tumble: Slot Features
With a total of 3 bonus features, tumbling reels, mystery transforming symbols and free spins are the main gameplay elements on offer in Templar Tumble.


Tumbling Reels feature

As the name suggests, the game uses a Tumbling Reels feature/mechanic. Each time you land a winning combination, the winning symbols are removed from the grid. Then new ones drop down and replace them.


Each tumble also removes some of the blockers, adding symbols. This increases the number of ways you can create a winning combination. Get on a roll to play with 117,649 ways to win in total.


Mystery Reveal feature

The Mystery Reveal feature is triggered if a wild symbol drops onto the grid on reels 2 through 6. Between 3 and 8 blocker symbols will then transform into mystery symbols. These symbols remain on the grid until there’s a winless tumble. Then, 1 of 2 things can happen:


  • They can all transform into the same matching symbol and a new payout calculation is made.
  • They can all turn into coins, each of which delivers a prize of between 1 and 1,000 x your total stake.



Free Spins feature

The Free Spins feature triggers when you have managed to unlock all the blocked symbols on the grid. You’ll then go on to play 6 free spins. The free spins play out on the full 6×7 grid with no blockers in place. That means you’ll have the maximum 117,649 ways to win active throughout the feature.


Land a wild symbol during the free spins and between 3 and 6 standard symbols will turn into mystery symbols. Once again, these can turn into the same matching symbol or a coin which can deliver a cash prize. Coins can also add extra free spins to your total.


Finally, you’ll have the opportunity to automatically trigger the Free Spins feature. This will set you back 80 x your total stake. As a result, the RTP increases to 96.92%. This is available in most territories but not the UK unfortunately.



Templar Tumble: Slot Verdict

So is it Megaways, is it a grid slot? Temple Tumble takes positive aspects of both, then rolls them into something distinctive. There are also shades of Fantasma’s Maze Escape Megaways going on due to the way the reels look, half-covered in blockers as they are. Once you hit spin though, the two games are miles apart. Via graphics and gameplay, Relax has created an entertaining experience, one with an unusual theme as well as effective features.


The Tumble titled range of games have worked out well for Relax Gaming, and Templar Tumble is another good example. It’s got a great look, easy on the eyes, along with sound effects which create an almost spiritual feeling - apt given we are dealing with the Templars after all. The gameplay is simple, yet the blocker destruction system builds wins as well as tension nicely. They don’t always go your way of course, though when they do, it is a real blast. Free spins, where the full grid comes into play, greatly amplifies the symbol transformation feature, potentially pulling in long, exciting tumble sequences.


You don’t have to be a student of history to enjoy what Templar Tumble has to offer. Relax has mixed recognisable slot elements with a great atmosphere and excellent features to create a compelling game that’s just fun to play.
