The Exotic East Combined with Colossal Reels
This slot has a distinctly Eastern theme. On the reels you’ll find tall pagodas, elephants with a head dress and an exotic Eastern dancer. When you hit the main bonus feature, an enchanting sitar-based tune plays.
There are two sets of reels, each one labelled. On the left you will find the 5×4 setup of the ‘main reels’. On the right the ‘colossal reels’ have a huge 5×12 setup. Like several slots using this setup, wilds can replicate between the two reel sets.
Here are the key features which make Towers of the Temple slots worth a spin:

If you have not come across colossal reels before – then the setup will soon make sense. On the left is a standard set of reels. This has 5 reels, each with 4 rows of symbols. There are 25 win-lines on this one.
Over on the right is a taller, thinner set of reels. This has the same 5 reels, only this time they are each 12 symbols tall. There are an additional 75 win-lines on this set for 100 in total. You don’t need to bet 100 credits. The minimum spin is just 50c – though bet multipliers are possible.
Wild symbols link the two sets of reels, though only when they completely cover one or more reels on the main (smaller) set. You will see an animation where these wilds move over to the right. They make the matching reel on the colossal reel set into a wild reel – giving you plenty of opportunity for those big wins.
Elephant symbols are your ticket to a free spins bonus. These appear on reels 1, 3 and 5 on both sets of reels. You need a minimum of 3 (between the two sets) to trigger the main bonus feature. More get you extra spins and bigger scatter prizes.
Sitar music plays during the free spins bonus – though this is not the only extra. Pagoda symbols, which are stacked 4 high on the main reel set, can get you additional wilds. When you get one completely on the reels, this replicates as if it was a wild onto the bigger set on the right. These work alongside the normal wilds, which show the slot logo.
As an extra, you can get 5 extra free spins on your current total with just 2 additional scattered elephant symbols.
Wild symbols can appear individually, as well as in stacks. These will link wins together, only replicating to the right if they fully cover a reel. These logo wilds replace everything except the elephant bonus symbols.
Your biggest wins will come from the temple symbols, these are tall, and show multi-tiered temples. There are two variations. An exotic female dancer comes next on the prize list, with golden ingots, flowers and a traditional head-dress next. Playing card symbols are used for the minor wins.
While the two sets of reels do take up a lot of the screen space, there is room for the logo on the top left. This shows a scene framed by cherry blossoms, with greenery and a temple in the distance.
On the reels, the quality of the designs is excellent – as you would expect from WMS. The ornate temples stand out, rising with multiple tiers into the sky. The female dancer is seen from behind, silks flowing as she dances.
Like the other colossal reel slots from WMS, there are not many animations. Only the replicating wilds bring the reels to life. Sounds are electronic for the most part, with the on-theme sitar tune playing once you trigger the free spins bonus.
The range of slots from WMS using the colossal reels setup continues to grow. This is the first time an exotic eastern theme has been used for this range. The production is top-quality, and there is plenty of opportunity to win over many of the 100 win-lines.
Your free spins bonus differs from Lil Red or Van Helsing (other popular colossal reels slots). This time extra wilds are available. If you manage to get 2 or more wild reels on the bigger right-side reel set, your bankroll could be given a huge boost.
