Microgaming is the world’s longest-running developer of online pokies, and the variety of games they’ve produced over more than two decades is incredible. However, the software group’s all-too-common cookie cutter style of development can lead to disappointment in fans who are hoping for something a bit different. That’s exactly what they got this month when Microgaming’s Quickfire platform was infused with Temple of Fortune, a new online poker machine from Big Time Gaming (BTG).
All Microgaming powered casinos that support the Quickfire platform—which is pretty much all of them, with 120+ operators integrating the software—now offer the new Temple of Fortune. These include top-brand sites like Royal Vegas Online, Platinum Play, Euro Palace and many more.
Temple of Fortune is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot machine with wilds, scatters and multipliers. Big Time Gaming did not integrate a typical free spins function, instead opting for a trio of bonus features that can award 500x, 750x or as high as 1,000x the total amount staked.
Bets range from $0.01 to $10.00 per line, for a total max bet of $0.20 to $200.
Temple of Fortune by Big Time Gaming
Deep in the jungle of the Amazon Rain Forest, wild creatures, runic figures and unimaginable treasures await. But you, a brave young explorer, will have to traverse the passageways of the sinister temple ahead to unearth its mysteries.
A graphical masterpiece, the reels of this new online poker machine are transparent to reveal the majestic beauty of the Amazon jungle beyond, with thematic sound effects to match. In line with the Aztec motif, the game’s symbols include the confident Explorer, Dual Parrot Rune, Ruby Amulet, Stone Treasure Chest, Temple Doors, Golden Wheel, Temple of Fortune logo, and rune-encrusted Q, K and A card symbols.
Wild: The Explorer is the Wild, helping to combine with other symbols for big wins, and paying an enormous 1000x for 5 on a line.
Treasure Chest Feature: The jewel-encrusted Treasure Chest is a Scatter symbol in Temple of Fortune. When three or more appear anywhere on the reels, the Treasure Chest Feature begins. Each of the chests on the screen will light up, and the player must choose one to open. Each chest contains a random multiplier prize of up to 500x the total triggering bet.
Temple of Fortune Feature: The Temple Door symbol also acts as a Scatter. This feature is triggered any time 3+ Temple Doors appear anywhere on the reels. The game switches to another screen depicting zig-zagging steps that lead up to the temple.
A bar on the left will randomly flash through 5 options; 4, 3, 2, 1 and Collect. The player must press the Stop button at the bottom to reveal what the Explorer will do, either taking the number of steps shown on the bar or, if the meter stops on Collect, they will win the multiplier on the current step. Reaching the top step awards the highest prize of 750x the total triggering bet.
Mystical Wheel of Fortune Feature: The Wheel symbol (which looks more like a gong) is yet another Scatter on this new online poker machine, and is the window to the game’s most lucrative bonus round. They only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4, and when one shows up on each of those reels, it activates the Mystical Wheel of Fortune Feature.
The wheel appears, with 13 slots offering varying multipliers of 50x to 1,000x. Press Play to spin the wheel, and the number it stops on will be awarded as a multiple of the total triggering bet.
