Steam Tower Slot Review

The Steam Tower slot from NetEnt is wonderfully fun to play. While we are positive that the theme of the game is not going to work with everybody, we know that the gameplay that the slot boasts will do. Be prepared for an epic ride!

Steam Tower Slot Overview

How to Play Steam Tower Slot

The Steam Tower slot was released by NetEnt in February 2015. It has 5 reels and 15 paylines. It is a low to medium volatility slot machine. The minimum bet is 15p.

The maximum bet is £150. While we could not find details of what the house edge in this slot was, we can imagine that is the standard edge that NetEnt has i.e. around the 3% mark.

The theme of this slot is Steam Punk. For those who are unaware, you think of steam punk as being a cross between the Victorian era and robots. Sometimes it works, sometimes it does not.

We kind-of see what NetEnt were trying to do with this slot, and we are sure that it works for some people, but the whole theme does not resonate with us.

It does seem a little ‘over the top’ and the fact that some of the symbols have roughly the same design (we are talking about the letter symbols), it does not offer a great deal of uniqueness.

However, do remember that we are not the greatest fans of the whole steam punk genre anyway, so you should not take our word as gospel. We urge you to check it out and see whether it is right for you or not.

In true NetEnt style, this game is simple to play. However, as you are about to discover, the team has gone to great lengths to mix up some of the features, just to make them a bit more complicated. This means that both newcomers and more experienced slot machine players will be able to find something that they can enjoy here.

Bonus Rounds & In Game Features

Steam Tower Wilds: As we mentioned previously, there are several features in this game. As with every other slot, the one that will be popping up the most is the wild. This is a grappling hook. This is going to play an important role later, so bear with us. However, when this grappling hook appears during the normal game mode, it will just act as a substitute for the other symbols in the game.

Staked Wild Symbol: There is also a staked wild symbol. This one is special. He can cover one or more whole reels. If he does (i.e. you see the whole character), then you will be able to trigger 10 free spins. If he does not, you will just get to use him as a standard wild, which is still good.

Free Spins: Now, let’s assume that you trigger the free spins mode with this chap. Great! That is 10 free spins. However, this free spins mode is a bit different to other games. This is because the multiplier increases, and it is all down to that grappling hook. The grappling hook will enable you to climb up floors in the game. Each time you get a wild, you will climb a floor and get 2 free spins. The floor you are on will dictate your multiplier:

If you get to the 16th floor, you will get 1,000 coins multiplied by your bet level!

Steam Tower Mobile Slot Machine

This is a NetEnt mobile slot machine. This means that you can expect from it the same thing that every other NetEnt mobile slot machine provides. A quality experience.

We know that we said that we were not massive fans of the design of the game. We still aren’t. However, we do admit that the Steam Tower mobile slot machine does look good.

The graphics look decent on the small screen, and the gameplay is smooth. We did not really expect anything less from the team behind some of our favourite mobile slots, however.

Summary – What Do We Think?

While we are not the greatest fans of the theme that the Steam Tower slot machine boasts, we do love the way in which the game tackles the free spins mode. We love our free spins, so we have little choice but to give this game a good rating! Check it out.

If you fancy playing it, and we know you do since you have managed to read this far into the review, you will be able to check out Steam Tower on any website which offers NetEnt games.
