Swedish slot developer Quickspin has indulged its deep appreciation of fairytales yet again in Rapunzel’s Tower Slot, a 20-Payline slot played over a classic five reels and three rows. It’s based on the well-loved story of the long-haired princess kept locked in a high tower since babyhood by a wicked witch. (No wonder she has lockdown hair.)
Revamped near the end of 2017 to incorporate HTML 5 tech, it features free spins, multipliers plus two types of Wild. It’s as visually arresting as Quickspin fans have come to expect, with top-quality images straight out of a cartoon movie.
You can see Rapunzel with her hair dropping down the side of the tower to the left of the reels as the kingdom’s landscape rolls away in the distance. Spin those reels so the prince can scale the building and save this poor damsel in distress!
What’s more, there’s the potential to win 1,619x stake on every spin and the game is mobile-friendly.
How to play
The betting range is typically broad here, at 20p to £100 a pop, and Paylines are fixed. Set your bets in the standard fashion. Use Autoplay to make the most of this game’s graphics and atmosphere for a set number of spins without having to turn the reels manually.
Symbols on the reels include the prince, queen and king plus the scissors-brandishing witch and, of course, Rapunzel herself. Playing-card values from 9 to A in fancy calligraphy in keeping with the theme are the lesser-paying icons.
Rapunzel’s Tower Slot special features
Rapunzel herself serves as the Wild, as ever replacing all other icons bar the bonus Scatter and the Respin Wild. She’s stacked and can help create winning combos when you score at least a hat-trick of them. Land five to enjoy a 35x stake payday.
Her hair tied in a bow is the bonus or Respin Wild – it appears on the middle rows and you trigger a perk when you have at least a trio of these symbols. The Respin Wilds remain fixed in place, with the game respinning until you land a win. Again, these Wilds replace all icons bar the Scatter.
The Scatter is the tower where Rapunzel is being held prisoner.
Free spins feature
As ever, three Scatters or more is your ticket to this perk. A set of 10 free spins is your reward, and you get a further eight if you’re lucky enough to retrigger the feature during play.
The Tower feature
Each time a bonus Wild rocks up during free spins, the prince climbs a step closer to his princess waiting at the top of the tower. You get extra spins for reaching various milestones along the way. Get to the top and get a 2x multiplier on all wins for the round.
You won’t find a progressive jackpot here, but you can win a non-progressive jackpot of up to 1,000 coins.
Return to Player (RTP)
Rapunzel’s Tower Slot is on the higher side of medium-variance, while RTP is a sound 96.25%. What’s more, you can win more than 1,600x stake on each spin.
As well as looking gorgeous, this game offers some innovative features and Quickspin has pulled off the tricky feat of giving an often-retold story a fresh twist. So it’s definitely worth a second look, especially if fairytale or fantasy-themed games are your thing.
So let your hair down and have some fun with Rapunzel’s Tower! And remember to tell us what you thought.
