Temperance Slots

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.

Entering an Underwater World

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.

Small Bets and Big Wins

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.

The Free Spins Feature and the Survival Bonus

  • When the scatter symbols land on the reels of Temperance Slots, the game rewards players with 8, 12 or 20 free spins for three, four or five symbols, respectively. The feature also awards a multiplier of 2x, 3x, 5x or 10x during the round. The free spins bonus round may also be retriggered once, which could result in a total of 40 free games with a potential multiplier on each and every one of them.
  • The Survival Bonus offers up to five levels of pick-and-win fun; players choose from groups of steampunk items. Gamblers can win single cash prizes for single items or every cash prize for the level if they choose the “Win All” symbol. Bettors continue to make their selections and advance through the levels until all five levels have been completed or the “Collect” symbol is uncovered.

An Attractive Hit for Microgaming

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.
