Steam Tower retro slot game by NetEnt is packed with a whole lot of imagination. This adventure themed game is inspired by the British industrial revolution era and Victorian style clothing. The game is about climbing up the steam tower levels to save a princess from a dragon. The 5 reels and 15 paylines retro slot has a metal theme for the graphics. The reels have a metal frame and is set above the steam tower in an industrial town. The symbols include gentleman with a top hat, a blond haired lady, a crossbow and a steam tower. The fantasy symbol is the red dragon.
Climb the tower to activate features such as wilds, stacked wilds, multipliers, free spins, and a bonus wins. The climb to the top floor using the wild symbols, they help you ascend to the next floor until you reach the floor 16. The stacked wild symbol will award 10 Free spins and also help you climb to the first level. Multipliers come into play during the Free Spins feature. Each floor level has a multiplier that applies to the bet line. The top floor (floor 16) rewards a player with a bonus win of 1,000 coins multiplied by the bet level. Wilds on the reels during the Free Spins mode will increase the Free Spins by 2. The floor meter, multiplier meter and tower meter will keep track of your floor level, multiplier level, and your current multiplier and position in the tower. I will suggest you start climbing because this game has a return to the player rate of 97%.
