Rapunzel's Tower from Quickspin: Slot Review - once upon a time...

Help a brave prince climb a tall tower to rescue a lonely princess from a wicked witch.

This latest release from renowned software studio Quickspin is all about their own unique take on the classic fairy tale Rapunzel. This magical fairy tale centres on a lonely girl called Rapunzel who has been locked up in a tower by an evil witch. Poor Rapunzel does not even know that she is a princess as she was separated from her royal parents at birth. One day, Rapunzel finds out that she has extremely long magic hair and she uses her hair to allow a prince to climb the tall tower so he can rescue her and ensure that they live happily ever after. Let’s find out if this slot is worth the climb or not?

Rapunzel's Tower is a 5 reel slot game with 20 paylines and includes Free Spins, Sticky Wilds, Respins, and a Tower feature.

Rapunzel's Tower

Special Features

The first feature to highlight is that the game has 2 different Wild symbols. The first Wild symbol is your standard Wild symbol and is represented by an image of Rapunzel. It substitutes for all symbols except the Bonus and Respin Wild symbols and comes stacked on the reels. This symbol is also the highest paying symbol in the game as if you land 5 of these symbols on a winning payline then you’ll be dancing with delight with a wonderful payout worth 35X your total bet!

The second Wild symbol is the Respin Wild symbol and is depicted by an image of Rapunzel’s insanely long hair. This symbol only appears on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5 in the game and if you happen to land 3 of these symbols in any position on the reels then you will trigger the Respin feature. During this feature, you will be awarded a Respin and any Respin Wild symbols that trigger the feature will lock into place and become sticky. A pleasing aspect of this feature is that you’ll keep receiving Respins until a win is formed.

The Bonus symbol is illustrated by a picture of the tall tower where Rapunzel is held captive. This symbol only appears on reels 2, 3, and 4 on the reels. Land 3 of these symbols anywhere on the reels and you will activate the Free Spins bonus game. In this feature, you’ll be awarded 10 Free Spins and it’s possible to retrigger an additional 8 Free Spins on top of that. Keep a very close eye on the Respin Wild symbol during Free Spins as when it pops up then the Tower feature will kick in and the prince will start to climb the tower. With each Respin Wild symbol appearing, the prince will move one step closer to the tower and gain additional spins along the way. For example, make it to step 10 and you’ll receive 2 extra spins but if you make it all the way to step 25 which is the very top of the tower then you’ll be awarded 2 extra spins along with a lovely 2X multiplier.

Theme, Graphics and Sound

Rapunzel’s Tower features a cartoon-like presentation which fits in really well with the fairytale theme of the game. The backdrop of the slot is a bright blue sky with trees in the distance and you’ll notice Rapunzel to the left-hand side of the reels perched at the top of the tower with her long flowing hair. The symbols are wonderfully designed and consist of Rapunzel, a Prince, a King, a Queen, a Witch, and the standard A- 9 icons. The animations are a nice visual treat as a cool orange swirling patterns displays on winning symbols when you land a win and I really enjoying watching the prince slowly climb the tower in the Tower feature.

The music is enchanting, melodic, and has a real music-box quality to it. It ties in really well with the fairy tale theme of the game.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 20 paylines, a high RTP of 96.25%, and a fantastic maximum payout worth 1,619X your original wager.
