TEMPLE OF TREASURE fruit machine
Temple of Treasure is a Barcrest machine which has
incorporated many features found on JPM machines. It can streak for very large
wins and the current opinion is that there are 2 settings for this machine. The
first is ARCADE which can produce streaks up to £120 and the other is PUB
which streaks for £45+. It may well be that there is no difference, just
the way the machines are played, but it seems at the moment there might be
different settings on certain machines. There also seems to be some difference
of opinion as to the best way to get a streak. Some think it is better to start
with a red TOT feature, others think its best to get a jackpot
There are 12 features in a 3x4 grid in the middle. When any of
them are offered 'red' then they become super and some of these are guaranteed
jackpot. The features are laid out below.METHOD 1
: (from MB)
Providing the machine is full, play only for the red Temple of Treasure
feature. This should start the big streak for 90+ukp. Do
not take any features, normal or red, or barcodes and avoid any JP's until
you've had the red TOT feature
. Be careful as it can force a JP on you,
e.g. £12 on a 2, gamble low and it will give you a 1. Sometimes taking a
JP will start a small streak for about 38ukp but it will knock back the big
one. Once the streak has started it will offer plenty of features (even normal
ones pay well when streaking), barcodes (take fruit shooter, 2-1-3, this can
pay big), bonus nudge code 2-3-1 for 12 nudges
this should gamble to 99 nudges for JP. A few points of interest: when the
machine is dying to pay out a JP but not ready to streak, it will offer red hot
warrior. This is virtually a guaranteed JP but do not take it. It will kill the
machine stone dead. It will offer this feature frequently but refuse it every
time. When true skill is offered frequently from the
bonuses on the hi-lo reel it is close to streaking
. If it doesn't offer
true skill and keeps giving extra jewel, then it is a long way from the streak.
Take reel stepper from the horseshoe bonus when true skill. This is the way to
fill up the matrix for the JP but will normally only do this when streaking.
When it has paid 45ukp or 60ukp from TOT feature it will normally appear to die
but after a few pounds back in it will give a JP or barcode and continue paying
out to around 90ukp. METHOD 2
: Another way to trigger the streak
is to get a jackpot from either the nudge code (above) or by hi-lowing the win
up the left hand side. Some players have found this harder to do than others.
Sometimes this win will repeat once but no streak will follow. Other times a
big streak will be triggered, as JL has pointed out: "One point though, if it
gives you 2 jps or a jp then TOT for 30 and starts to play shit dont assume it
is dead, I havent quite got the signs sussed enough to say "if its doing this
then play on" but even if it is losing on gambles for a while after 45 out it
can suddenly offer a red TOT for 45 or 60. After the red TOT you *always* have
at least a tenner if not a jp off a red feature next." And with regard to the
red features JL also states: "but you shouldnt be taking any of these except
mystery match for jp to start the streak UNLESS you've had your red TOT, all
that happens is the big streak gets pushed further back."
"I would add
in something about getting the matrix full for the first jackpot. Its not worth
doing once you think/ know the streak has started as you then want the red TOT,
but it can be an easier way to get the first jp. You need at least 3 nudges,
look for the horseshoes behind the reel and bring them in if you can and hope
you get a chance to fill it up. It will often let you do this when you have
only one fruit to get, but then offer selector - dont despair though as it
doesnt mean it cant afford the jp, I've had it go selector on several occasions
only to give the full matrix next go. Dont bother trying to nudge in the
symbols you are short of and hope for a hold as it doesnt happen. If you are
using this method you can let it offer 2 or 3 wins and keep shuffling them away
before it will either kill you on the gamble or force the cherries on you (from
ADDAMS FAMILY is a clone of Temple Of Treasure. The key
is to force a jackpot from the left hand cash side to trigger a streak. This
can cost a lot of money. If this doesn't repeat then you will have to force it
again but it should eventually offer the MEGA ADAMS feature. If the jackpot
repeats this is a very good sign and you will certainly be offered more mega
features if you play on. One thing to watch for is jackpots from lower
features. Sometimes you will see the jackpot is above or below the winline, you
can take the feature 'meet the neighbours' to get this, it is a superhold. It
is not the easiest machine to make steady profit on and the gamble loves to
lose on good numbers. While forcing you might also see it give the 3 bats to
put you into the ADAMS feature (not mega) which will pay 15 - 30
THE 0.3 PROGRAM (NEW UPDATE 13/6/01) This chip dumps 45-50ukp
far too randomly with very little warning. Climbing it out to the JP can take
ages, with several failures at the 10-12ukp mark, and then not trigger a
streak. Both times I have had 50 out of it it has come from 3 bats off the
first bonus at around the 1-2ukp mark. In other words anyone could fluke it. It
subsequently gives IM boards (which it hardly ever did b4) or Mega features. I
guess PA has been chipped the same way (I haven't come accross one). This is
great news for Joe Public as they may get the elusive JP very easily but there
seems very little pattern to it even if the thing is continually giving nudges.
Be very wary of this as 80-90 in after losing a 12ukp gamble is unlikely to be
uncommon (It's certainly happened to me).
