While the steampunk scene and lifestyle has lost a bit of its own steam in recent years, it works well in conjunction with the underwater city background of Temperance Slots, a 5-reel, 20-payline game created by Microgaming and Old School Studios. Temperance features a survival-style bonus game with five levels and a scatter, that if retriggered, can award up to 40 free spins and a multiplier that could reach as high as 10x. With a single-spin top prize of 4,900x the initial line bet that may be attached to that 10x multiplier, this game is a little bit on the volatile side of things. Gamblers who love the chance to win big, however, may absolutely love spinning the reels in this title.
Temperance may be one of the best looking slot titles in recent Microgaming history; the visuals in the slot are sharp and crisp, which is not an easy task when dealing with an underwater city like the one on the reels in the game. Slot spinners will find a man, a girl, a diver, his helmet, a bottle, the radio and a sonar device on the reels of the game. Bettors will also find the bonus and scatter symbols that award the game’s two largest and most important features.
Most slots that have a low betting range also have a low volatility, making it difficult for players who like chasing that big win with a small bankroll; however, that it isn’t the case with Temperance. Coin sizes range from $0.01 to $0.50, making the bet variance in the game fall between $0.20 and $10 per spin when playing all 20 paylines. That top prize of 4,900x the line stake with a 10x multiplier can turn a $0.20 bet into a single-line win of $490.
Microgaming is much better knowns for innovative game play and the unique bonus features found in its game, but Temperance Slots proves that the company can also create candy for the eyes when developers decide to do so. Some players may find the bonus features a bit lacking when it comes to originality, but the rounds still offer a good chance at scoring a big win. Microgaming has proven time and again that it can create visually appealing games while remaining innovators in slot play; once the company brings the two together, there will be no limits to the developer’s potential for success, and Temperance Slots comes quite close to the mark in this way.
