Rapunzel’s Tower is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot based on the famous fairy tale about the girl with the exceedingly long hair who’s locked in a tower by a wicked witch. Created by Swedish developer Quickspin and revamped in December 2017, it comes with free spins, wilds, bonus wilds and multipliers. Stakes range from between 20p and £200 per spin if you opt-into the bonus wild offering.
Scandinavian developers such as Thunderkick and Quickspin seem to go the extra mile in producing visually arresting slots and this one is no exception. Symbols on the reels include the scissor-wielding wicked witch, the prince, king and queen as well as Rapunzel herself. They’re drawn cartoon style and look like they could have been stills from an animated movie.
The standard playing card symbols are done in a Germanic-looking font and are set against a white backdrop making them nice and crisp. They’re accompanied on the right hand side of the screen by Rapunzel in the tower with her beautiful blonde hair in full flow.
Rapunzel’s Tower offers 2 types of wilds. The standard wild (Rapunzel) is a stacked affair and substitutes for everything apart from the scatter. Find 5 on a payline and a 35 times stake payout awaits. Rapunzel’s hair tied in a bow is the Bonus Wild and appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. Find at least 3 of these symbols and you will trigger the Respin feature – the Respin wild symbols remain in place with a free respin awarded. The respins continue until you get a winning combination.
3 or more Tower scatter symbols triggers the Free Spins feature where you will receive 10 free spins – it’s possible to win some more via the Tower feature too. Every time a Bonus Wild appears during the feature, the Prince will climb 1 step closer to Rapunzel at the top of the tower. There are extra free spins, up to 8, on offer for reaching milestones along the way.
Step 10 gives 2 free spins, step 15 gives 2 and step 20 gives 2. Make it all the way to the top of the tower and you’ll receive 2 more free spins with a 2x multiplier. Even more free spins are on offer if you find 3 scatters at any time during the free spins feature.
Rapunzel’s Tower looks a treat. The features are pretty innovative too, especially the free spins and Tower feature. The variance is in the middle with a cool 1,619 times your stake available on each spin. Quickspin has taken an age-old story and given it a modern twist making Rapunzel’s Tower worth a closer look, especially if fantasy-themed slots are to your liking. If so, I’d also recommend Jack and the Beanstalk by NetEnt.
