Special Features

The first thing to highlight is there is no Wild symbol in this game at all. Instead, the game uses Mystery Symbols. The Mystery symbol comes stacked and it is illustrated by the Hong Kong Tower game logo. When it appears, it can change into any symbol to further increase your chances of landing a big win. This symbol can also transform into a Blue Yin Yang Bonus symbol which can trigger the Wheels of the Sky feature and it gives you 2 extra lives to use in this bonus game.

Another way to activate the Wheels of the Sky feature is to land 3 or more Red Yin Yang Bonus symbols anywhere along the reels. Depending on how many of these symbols you land, dictates how many extra lives you will be given for this feature. For example, if you manage to get 4 or 5 Red Ying Yang Bonus symbols then you will receive 1 or 2 more lives to use for the feature. This bonus game takes place atop 3 skyscrapers with a bonus wheel on top of each of them. You get to spin the first wheel and if you land on a level up segment then you gain access to the next wheel but if you land on a blank segment then the feature will end. Luckily, this is where the extra lives come into play and they will save you when you unfortunately land on a blank segment. Make it all the way to the third wheel and you’ll be given the opportunity to win up to 500X your initial wager!

Theme and Graphics

The presentation of this game is second to none. The graphics are slick and full of bright neon lights. The backdrop of the slot is a brightly lit skyscraper with a dark blue sky in the distance. Symbols are intricately detailed and range from lotus flowers, diamonds, bonsai trees through to bright neon images of fire, earth, wind, and water. The animations are impressive especially when the Mystery symbol appears on the reels and slowly rotates to transform into other symbols.

The music consists of some decent jingles and loud sound effects and if you listen closely enough you will even hear a strong wind and some wailing police sirens.

Our Verdict on Hong Kong Tower

Hong Kong Tower is created by ELK Studios and it's a very easy slot to just load up and play. Much like other games made by ELK Studios, it is visually stunning to look. Although the game does not have that many features to mention, the Wheels of the Sky bonus game is highly entertaining and very rewarding too. However, it is worth noting that this game is highly volatile so expect to invest some time and money before you land a huge win. It is worth it though as the fact you can win up to 3,016X on each spin will draw in many a player to try this game out.
