Temple Stacks: Splitz Slot Review

An Aztec ruin in the central American jungle is the setting for the Temple Stacks: Splitz slot. The action starts on a 5 reel, 3 row, 243 ways to win machine. Mystery Stacks can split to reveal up to 12 matching symbols on a reel which can take the ways to win up to 248,822. There’s also a free spins feature. The more times it’s triggered, the more free spins and Splitz combinations you’ll have to choose from. Stakes here range from between 10p and £100 per spin.

Temple Stacks: Splitz Theme/Symbols

Flanked by lush jungle vegetation, the reels are set within a stone temple building. There you’ll find 5 animals fossils and 5 simple coloured blocks. The red block is the most lucrative symbols, paying 2.5 times your total stake if you land 5 in combination.

Splitz Mystery Stacks

On any spin, you could see 1 or 2 reels filled with Splitz Mystery Stacks. As their name suggests, these totem-pole style symbols split to reveal up to 9 of the same matching symbol (12 in the feature, more of which shortly). This increases the number of ways to create a winning combination. If you got 9 symbols on all 5 reels, you’d benefit from 59,049 ways to win. This is called the Splitz Mystery Stacks feature.


Land 2 of the free spins scatter symbol on the same spin and you’ll trigger the Respin feature. The free spin scatters turn wild and the other reels spin again. If you land a third scatter, you’ll trigger the Free Spins feature. If you don’t, the extra wilds can still help create a new winning combination.

Free spins with up to 248,832 ways to win

If you manage to land 3, 4 or 5 of the free spins scatter you’ll pocket an award of 1, 10 or 100 times your stake – you’ll also activate the Free Spins feature. There are 4 different levels of free spins. Each level is unlocked then you trigger the free spins 4 times. They offer different combinations of free spins and active Splitz.

Level Splitz Ways to Win 3 scatters 4 scatters 5 scatters
Steel 3-9 Up to 59,049 15 free spins 20 free spins 35 free spins
Bronze 4-10 Up to 100,000 9 free spins 12 free spins 21 free spins
Silver 5-11 Up to 161,051 6 free spins 8 free spins 14 free spins
Gold 6-12 Up to 248,832 3 free spins 4 free spins 7 free spins

Regardless of which you play, the Free Spins feature can be re-triggered meaning up to 70 free spins in total.

As mentioned, the more symbols per reel, the more ways to win – in the base game and in the Steel Level in the Free Spins feature, the most you can get is 59,049 ways to win. In the other levels, this rises considerably. Triggering the Free Spins feature 16 times will get into the Gold Level where a whopping 248,832 ways to win are possible on every free spin.

Splitz the difference

The Temple Stacks: Splitz slot is the first of what we expect will be many Splitz slots. The game mechanic is rather like the all-conquering Megaways slots. If you like the shape-shifting action they deliver, then you’ll find something similar in Temple Stacks: Splitz.

As usual for an Yggdrasil Gaming slot, the design is impressively done. The visuals are easy on the eye and the brooding, rhythmical soundtrack fits perfectly. Put all that together and this is a very solid first Splitz release. Variance wise, it’s high with maximum payouts of 25,000 x stake on each spin or free spin. With an RTP of 96.1%, it looks like Big Time Gaming will be getting a little competition!
