Steam Tower is a fantastically imaginative slot by Net Entertainment. When you enter the Steamtower slot, you enter a world where steampunk and fantasy collide. At first, we thought this a very odd combination. However, it works! As ever, Net Entertainment has done a fantastic job of creating graphics which pull the theme together nicely. Your aim is to assist the Victorian hero in rescuing the princess from the Steam Tower.
The game is made up of 5 reels and 3 rows, making it a pretty standard format. It has fifteen pay lines which are fixed during every spin. There is a decent range of bets available, with the lowest being 15p per spin and the highest set at £150 per spin.
Just as the theme is a mix of fantasy and Victorian steampunk, so are the symbols. J, Q, K and A made up the lower values of the game. The higher value symbols include the princess, the hero, the dragon eye and the top of the tower.
There are a few bonus features, to keep things interesting. Steampunk has two main bonus symbols, the first is the grappling gun wild and the other is the hero. Both are wild symbols and can substitute for all other symbols in the game. The hero can be stacked, to create more winning combos.
The extra spins feature is triggered by the hero. To access it, you’ll have to land a hero wild stack which covers all positions on a single reel. You’ll receive 10 extra spins, which also takes you to the first floor of the tower. There are 16 floors. The aim is to make your way from the bottom to the top, accumulating prizes as you go. To do so, you have to land 1 or more grappling gun wilds during a spin. Each time you do so, you’ll move up a free and receive 2 extra spins. Upon rescuing the princess by reaching the top, you’ll receive a huge x1000. It pays to be a hero!
