Steampunk-themed Steam Tower Slot from NetEnt features 15 fixed Paylines and five reels. The idea of the game boils down to climbing the titular tower and saving the princess from the dragon to win big money. (So there’s an element of fairy tale and fantasy, too.)
Steampunk, of course, blends sci-fi, fantasy and the Victorian era, and this slot, while not being the only game with the theme, does so in an exciting, innovative way. Here you’ll find a great free spins round, stacked Wilds and an attractive multiplier.
The main screen shows our hero on the left, tooled up with a grappling gun, while the reels are set within the tower, as the princess in need of rescue waits at the top.
How to play
Play from just 15p a spin or for up to £150; coin sizes in Steam Tower Slot range from 1p to £1 – the great thing about this game is that it’s suitable for both novices and more experienced players.
The four high-value symbols in the base game include the yellow eye of the dragon, the princess, the hero and the top of the tower. Meanwhile, the lower-paying values are the Jack, Queen, King and Ace playing card values, made to look the part for Steam Tower thanks to a series of industrial-style cogs.
A Floor Metre beneath the reels indicates which storey you’re on, while a Multiplier Metre advises players on their current multiplier. Finally, the Tower Metre shows your applicable multiplier and place in the tower.
There are two Wilds here – the hero and the grappling gun. The former is your key for unlocking the bonus round, and it’s stacked on the reels.
This is the only bonus round in Steam Tower Slot, and where you’ll find all the winning action, with frequent and decent wins. Trigger it when at least one of stacked Wilds covering all of a reel’s positions crop up in the base game. The game then moves up to the first floor of the tower, which you can climb until you get to the top storey, the sixteenth floor.
The further you get, the greater the rewards. The multiplier increases as follows:
- 2 x multiplier for Floors 1 to 3
- 3x multiplier for Floors 4 to 6
- 4x multiplier for Floors 7 to 9
- 5x multiplier for floors 10 to 12
- 6x multiplier for floors 13 to 16
- 7x multiplier for the 16th floor
You’ll get to shift up one floor and bag two additional free spins each time you land a minimum of one grappling gun symbol.
Eventually, you’ll run out of spins and your total prize will be calculated and awarded.
Return to Player (RTP)
At 97%, the RTP in this medium-variance slot isn’t too shabby at all, and certainly above the norm.
