Steam Tower is yet another fantastic slot game to come out of NetEnt’s development studios. It features a fun and interesting steampunk theme, with all the gadgetry and eccentricity that comes from this style. Steam Tower uses 15 unique paylines on its reels on which winning combinations can be formed. Moreover, the game also comes with wide betting limits.
The minimum wager in Steam Tower is $0.15 but it can go up as high as $150.00 per spin, meaning that this game is perfect for casual players and high rollers. The number of paylines is set a 15 and users wager at least one coin each, but the number of coins per payline can be increased to 10. The value of the coins ranges from $0.01 to $1.00.
Steam Tower is made with an excellent cyberpunk theme, portraying the Victorian era but with amusing steam-powered gadgets and inventions. Cyberpunk is a style that often goes unappreciated in today’s world so it is wonderful to see it come to life in Steam Tower. Everything about this game’s presentation screams quality. The graphics are colorful and vibrant, making the experience a feast for the eyes.
Additionally, the symbols that adorn the reels feature various Victorian imagery. The background track also lends itself quite well to the overall aesthetic, making this a highly immersive game. Overall, Steam Tower is one of the finest made games to ever be released by a software provider and we are happy that it exists.
Steam Tower features some unique symbols and each can be easily distinguished from the rest. Much like other slot games of this type, the symbols can be categorized based on their pay tables and their importance to the overall gameplay. One one side, we have the Low Paying symbols which are high cards ranging from Jack to King. There is nothing too interesting about these and they have the lowest payout ratios in the game. Next, come the High Paying symbols which feature better artwork and pay tables.
Finally, we come to the Special Category which is comprised of a single symbol – the Wild. This one can stand in for any other symbol in the game, essentially, helping you complete combinations when you otherwise would not have been able to. As any experienced slot player will tell you, Wilds make the game exciting and can also provide a nice boost to your bankroll from time to time. Unfortunately, the Wilds do not have their own paytable and thus, do not pay anything by themselves.
Combinations and Jackpots
Steam Tower comes with plenty of features worth talking about. One such is the free spins feature, which can be activated when certain conditions are met. During the main game, a Stacked Wild will appear every now and then, covering the whole reel and triggering 10 free spins. However, these are not your run-of-the-mill free spins where you simply watch the game play without your input. Instead, this feature comes with a lot of depth that will directly result in larger winnings. During the free spins, the title character starts ascending the Steam Tower and the higher he goes, the larger the winnings multiplier. When the free spins start, he will be on the first floor and for every Wild that lands on the reels, he will go up one floor and 2 more free spins will be added to the total.
As we have mentioned, with every couple of floors the winnings multiplier increases. For the first three floors the multiplier will be only 2x, but as soon as you go up to level 4 it rises to 3x. Similarly, when you reach the seventh floor, the multiplier goes up to 4x. When you get to floor 10, the multiplier will go up to 5x, while floor 13 will bring the multiplier up to 6x. Finally, when the character ascends to the 16th and final floor, the multiplier will reach its maximum of 7x. Additionally, when you reach the 16th floor, the game will reward you with 1,000 coins multiplied by the bet level.
