We Explore the New Splitz Mystery Stacks in the Temple Stacks Slot From Yggdrasil Gaming!
Mr Green Casino has just added the latest release Temple Stacks Splitz from Yggdrasil Gaming to their casino as an exclusive slot release, a titltle which has been promoted heavily by Yggdrasil featuring a brand new Splitz mechanic that looks set to rival the popular Megaways slots.
The regular gameplay on Temple Stacks uses a regular 5×3 reel set and 243-ways payline format, the special Stacks are present on each reel however and can land partially or fully in view increasing the number of symbols present on these reels in the range of 3-12, this increases the maximum winning ways up to a staggering 248,832 ways.
The main difference between the Stacks feature and Megaways is that all of the symbols revealed from the stacks are matching symbols, and the pay ways on this slot only alter when stacks are visible on the reels.
The symbols revealed from these stacks are all matching symbols, giving the possibility of some huge wins, certainly when multiple stacks are in play on multiple reels.
Whilst there are no natural base game wilds, landing 2 of the special Scatter symbols on the reels triggers a re-spin giving you a further chance of triggering the bonus round and whilst this happens the scatters will also act as wilds for that re-spin.
The main bonus where thinks heat up further it triggered by landing 3 or more scatters, with additional scatters awarding more free spins, there is also 4 unlockable free spins modes to choose from, where you can decide just how volatile you want the free spins to be in terms of the sizes of the stacks.
Initially, there is only one free spin option to select but each successive bonus round trigger unlocks a slightly more volatile option, the most volatile option awarding just 3 free spins (3 Scatter Trigger) but with stacks that can be as large as 12 symbols in size!
The Splitz mechanic is actually quite simple to understand once you play this slot, and with no natural wilds, the wins and potentially huge wins are very simple to identify on the reels.

Splitz Mystery Stacks
The Mystery Stacks are on all 5 reels, they can land fully or partially on the reels and have anywhere from 3-9 identical symbols in the base game and 3-12 symbols in Free Spins bonus round depending on which option you select.
When multiple stacks land on the reels and a win is guaranteed, 3 potential wins are displayed at the top of the reels with the amounts you can possibly win until one of these is randomly selected.
When 2 scatter symbols land on the reels, they are converted into Scatter/Wild symbols with a re-spin awarded, these reels are locked into position whilst the re-spin occurs.
Landing an additional scatter will then trigger the main free spins bonus round.
Triggered by landing 3 or more scatters on the reels, you are then given a choice of 4 different free spins options that increase in volatility.
Initialy only one free spin option is unlocked, but further bonus round triggers unlocks a further choice each time, with 3 bonus triggers fully unlocking all options. The options below are all based on a 3 scatter trigger, addtional scatters increase the number of strating free spins.

- Bronze – 4-10 Splitz – 9 Free Spins
- Silver – 5-11 Splitz – 6 Free Spins
- Gold – 6-12 Splitz – 3 Free Spins
The free spins round can also be fully re-triggered during the bonus round.
Temple Stacks Splitz Slot
The Temple Stacks Splitz slot from Yggdrasil Gaming is certainly a new an interesting take on the “increasing ways” or megaways style of slot, with the Splitz symbols all being matching and no natural wilds present on this slot though it does tend to be an all or nothing style of machine.
The 4 different free spins options are a nice touch and at least give you some flexibility on just how volatile you want to make this slot, our advice would be to save the most volatile options for any 4 or more scatter triggers, with just 3 free spins on the highest volatility option for a regular trigger making this choice incredibly risky.
In our playtests, we had bonus rounds in the range of 1x stake to well over 200x stake, with bags more potential if more stacks had been present on the reels.
We did the gameplay a little disappointing mainly due to the all or nothing type nature of this machine, but hopefully, this can be refined in future Splitz releases to offer something with more exciting gameplay, certainly worth a try if you are a fan of high variance as this machine is definitely that!
