Here’s a slot from Microgaming that has a great look to it, no happy cartoons here that’s for sure. It’s set in an alternative Victorian Britain where steam rules the roost. It also has plenty of winning opportunities for players.
The mechanical feel to the game is well adhered to and in the background we can see plenty of fog and pipes. The actual reels of the game are to be seen in a metallic surrounding.
The game has five reels, three rows of serious looking symbols and a total of 25 paylines. It’s up to you to decide just how many of those paylines to activate for each spin of the reels. As you’ll see when we discuss the bonus game you don’t have to be activating too many paylines which can be a bit expensive if going for a decent stake. The minimum cost of playing the game is just £0.01 and the maximum is £50, finding a level you can comfortably play at won’t be a problem and ruin your enjoyment of the game.
Symbols in the game include some steam punk designs and a Steamgirl who definitely isn’t one to get in an argument with as she’s armed with a gun. There’s also some good looking animation when winning combinations come along, so hopefully you’ll be seeing those a few times. We also get the nine to Ace playing card symbols which is a bit of overkill really.
The wild symbol is simply one that has W.I L.D. in a suitably metallic look. It can substitute for other symbols in order to get you some good wins. It can’t replace the Steam Punk Heroes scatter symbol which plays an important part in triggering the bonus round.
For all the information about how the game runs and the value of each winning combination, check out the paytable. Before risking your real cash balance have some free games to see the game in action.
The game can be played in regular or expert mode. The only real difference is being able to set an autoplay in expert mode. You can also access some handy statistics such as the largest win you’ve had and how long you’ve been playing the game.
The slot has a two-part bonus game and there are some free spins and multipliers available to be won. Initially you need at least three of the Steam Punk Heroes scatter symbols. These can be anywhere on the reels and once that’s done you are taken to another screen. This has a couple of levers and if you pull the red one, the gears slowly begin to turn. When that stops a multiplier and some free spins are revealed. When the free spins start it’s possible to re-trigger the free spins if those scatter symbols turn up in triplicate again.
Fans of Steampunk will definitely be appreciative of this slot from Microgaming. It has a great look to it and the theme is well adhered to. The bonus game is a good one, especially if you can get those free spins re-triggered.
