Theme and basic information about the Steam Tower slot

The theme of the Steam Tower slot is quite extraordinary. It tells us the legend-like styled love story that happened in industrial time, in which the steam power was one of the most important technologies. Hence, we can observe in the slot such component and heroes of the plot as a princess (who is captured in a tower on the sixteenth floor), a dragon's eye or just dragon (from which the princess should be rescued), the steam tower by itself and the main hero who is the man supposed to be a rescuer of a princess. There are also included mechanical components and some special meters well-describing the steam engine.

The slot was released in 2015. It’s provided by world-known NetEnt company.

It’s a 5-reel, 3-row slot. The overall number of pay-lines in Steam Tower slots game is fifteen. Wins pay from the left side. To note, solely the highest win per bet-line is paid.

As for starting off the game and adjusting settings, firstly you should set the “bet level”. It ranges from 1 to 10. The higher level the more bet you’re going to place. After that, you need to pay your attention to the “coin value” button and adjust the coin size the way you want (the possible minimum is 0,01 cents and the maximum is 1 euro. To make the reels spin you should press the round button in the middle of the control panel.

In addition, you can click on “Max bet” to initiate play in the easiest way (it will be automatically set maximum possible bet). Max bet is 150 euro and min bet is 0,15 cents.

Slot Symbols

There are 8 symbols featured in that slot. The highest paying symbol is one with a picture of a dragon’s eye. The lowest paying symbol is one on which a Jack on a background filled with the mechanisms is depicted. You will get 50 coins for all 5 symbols of Jack and only 3 coins for 3 Jack symbols.

Highest win per line equals 2000 coins if you hit 5 symbols with the picture of looking dangerous dragon's eye. Wild Symbol is the tip of weapon that rescuer holding in his hand. This symbol substitute for all other symbols, so it can help you win more money if it will appear quite often during the game.

Bonus features

There is no Scatter or Bonus symbols. Instead of them, you can find the Stacked Wild symbol with a man in a cylinder holding the part of weapon in his hand.

The Stacked Wild activates Free spins mode. The man in a cylinder has to appear in full grows and cover three vertical symbols of one reel, if it won’t be in full grows, so 10 Free spins mode won’t be activated. Nonetheless, even its part will replace all other symbols.

During a Free spins round, every Wild symbol adds 2 more free spins to left ones, which increases your chances to get up to 16th floor (you will be sent on 1st floor and supposed to climb on 16th floor with the help of Wild symbols that will lift you up) and rescue the princess.

Steam Tower slot does not provide with opportunity to take on progressive jackpot.

Special Features

There is a combination of the Stacked Wild symbol and the usual Wild symbol. Together they give a player an opportunity to win a really big sum of money (if a player is able to reach a top floor during 10 Free spins by getting enough Wild symbols).

You’ll find the ranked Multiplier (will be described below), that adds some kind of competition and gamble spirit to the gameplay experience.

During the Free spins play you’ll see some “meters” features under the reels:

  • “floor meter” shows which floor you’ve already reached

  • “multiplier meter” shows which multiplier set currently

  • “tower meter” shows a present multiplier and the floor you’ve climbed on

How does the multiplier work?

While you play Free spins all your winnings (win lines) will be multiplied in some times depending on which floor you’re on. (as was mentioned above, the Wild symbol will lift you on one floor up and reward you with 2 additional free spins):

  • If you are on 1-3 floor your winnings will be multiplied in 2 times

  • If you are on 4-6 floor your winnings will be multiplied in 3 times

  • If you are on 7-9 floor your winnings will be multiplied in 4 times

  • If you are on 10-12 floor your winnings will be multiplied in 5 times

  • If you are on 13-15 floor your winnings will be multiplied in 6 times

  • If you are on 16 floor your winnings will be multiplied in 7 times

If you climb on the top floor, beside previous winnings you’ll be rewarded with 1000 coins prize multiplied by the bet level.

RTP and volatility

RTP (return to player) is an important coefficient. The higher it is the better conditions in the slot for the players (a player gets back maximum of his deposit and thanks to bonuses (for new players) and prizes, he can earn some spare money). RTP of Steam Tower slot is 97.04%, it’s higher than on average on the market. Hence it’s the best choice for those who want to leave a casino with some additional cash.

Volatility is ranked as low/medium. As a result, you can play comfortably hitting winnings relatively often. But don’t expect a mind-blowing winning.

Graphics and sound

As for sound and graphics, you'll be contented with the NetEnt approach to visuals and sound effects implementing. All graphics are well-designed and colours are tastefully selected. Sound is top-notch quality as well. Even though the intro wasn’t created, the slot design is enjoyable.

Pros of Steam Tower slot by NetEnt:

  • RTP is very high

  • nice animation

  • excellent quality sound

  • unique theme

  • low volatility

  • big free spins multiplier (goes up to x7)

  • html5 is supported

There is only the con in Steam Tower slot by NetEnt:

  • low possible winning

Conclusion

Speaking about the general impression, it’s an excellent-quality slot with lots of pros. The only minus revealed that it doesn’t fit people who have a desire to win a life-changing amount of money. This game will be more appealing to those who want to play for fun and pleasure, getting small winnings periodically and being happy with a process.

My own experience

As for me and my experience of playing in the Steam Tower slot, I was a little bit disappointed by the absence of others (besides Free spins) bonus features. Nonetheless, I was happy to get some winnings during the game. In general, I liked it. And maybe even I will try my luck in this slot one more time.
