Steam Tower Review

July 10, 2015 - slot machines

Steam Tower, the uniquely themed Steampunk video slot game by NetEnt is a slot with 5 reels and 15 paylines, and takes you on a fun journey to the top of the tower. Partly Inspired by the 19th century’s Victorian era with it;s industrial designs, the aim, as is the aim in so many games, it to rescue the princess from the dragon (she is located at the top of the steam tower). Some may be screaming “Oh how original!” but NetEnt have breathed new life into this over done concept, and the fact that you can play from as little as 15p a spin to as much as £150 a spin, cushions the blow for any doubters.

One of the best parts of Steam Tower are the stacked wilds and Free Spins feature with an increasing multiplier. When your in the base game, look out for the stacked wilds as one or more will trigger the Free Spins feature. The game then ascends to the first floor. Look out for one or more wilds during the feature as these will give you an extra 2 free spins with the game ascending to the next floor.

When playing you will notice below the reels there’s a Floor Meter, this tells you which floor you are on so pay attention to it!, there is also a Multiplier Meter which tells you the current multiplier, and the Tower Meter which shows the current multiplier and your position in the tower, it can be slightly over bearing at times of high stress, but the more you play this game the more you become accustomed to it.

The 16th floor is where you want to get to, as this is the top floor. You can climb the tower with every free spin. Here you will be rewarded with a cash prize of 1,000 coins. Floors 1 to 3 give you a 2x multiplier, 3x multiplier for floors 4 to 6, 4x multiplier for floor 7 to 9, 5x multiplier for floors 10 to 12, 6x multiplier for floors 13 to 15 and a 7x multiplier for the 16th floor.

While it’s not the most amazing game in the NetEnt portfolio, it’s still a welcomed addition, managing to keep you engaged at every turn where other popular games don’t. Highly recommended, and it’s for new players and oldies alike.
