The story of Tower Quest reminds us a bit of the movie Lord of the Rings. In this slot, the objective is to defeat the evil wizard and conquer his dark tower. This can be achieved in a special card game in the bonus round, later in this review we will talk about it in some more detail.. It is clearly visible that Play’n Go has paid much attention in to the design of the symbols and the several bonus features. This really is a slot game for people that love the fantasy genre. Make sure you have all your magical powers ready – with Tower Quest you can win up to 500x your bet! Show that evil wizard who’s boss!
That looming classical music reveals that something is about to happen.. time for our first spins on Tower Quest. We see 5 symbols with beautifully designed characters that fit well with the fantasy theme. Elven, a dragon, skeleton warrior and an ork. Also, the known symbols A, K, Q and J are used. With this Play’n Go slot it’s easy to adjust your bet. You can choose to set the coin value and the number of coins you want to play. On the bottom of the screen you can immediately see what value your bet is in pounds. To our surprise, we can not set the number of lines we want to play at Tower Quest, we can only play all 20 paylines. The minimum bet for this slot is 20 pence, you can increase this up to £100 per spin. Very nice that even the images in the background move. For example, there are 2 black dragons on the edges, that sort of thing really brings the game to life.
Bonus Game, Scatters and Wild symbols
Tower Quest is packed with nice features, there are 2 colours of magic potions in the game; blue and red. When you spin one or more of these potions some magic smoke comes out, this smoke builds up on the left-or-right side of the slot. If you spin 5x the blue potions you can choose if you want to activate the bonus feature. But do it tactically, if you wait longer you can collect more potions and the extra bonus features become more valuable. When you have 5x the blue potions you can activate The Tower feature. The middle reel becomes a Wild symbol in the shape of the dark tower. The Wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols except the Bonus and Scatter. Any prize you win is doubled in this round. With 10x you can activate the feature Battle of the Wilds, you will receive 1 free spin and all 5 symbols with an image will adopt the function of the Wild symbol. If you manage to save up to 15x on the blue potions it’s time for Towers of Dark Power. Reels 1, 3 and 5 all have the function of a Wild symbol, so it will be very easy to win a prize!
If we compare the blue and red magic potions with each other, the red bottles offer even more benefits. It just takes a little longer before you get the red meter completely full to activate your bonus feature. With 10x you will get Empowered Wilds, that means 5 free spins. The money that you win during these rounds is doubled by a factor of 3. Save for a short time longer and with 20x it’s time for Wild Adventurers. Again you have 5 free spins, the difference with the previous bonus feature is that this time the 2 elves images count as Wild symbol. If you have the red meter completely full with 30x red potions, it’s time for Ever Burning Wilds. 5 free spins and each round one big Wild symbol is displayed.
But off course your ultimate goal is to defeat the evil wizard in his dark tower and grab the profits! You can do this with the added bonus game of this Tower Quest slot. Turn 3 symbols with an image of the evil wizard and you will enter the bonus game. Roll the dice and start the card game against your archenemy. Each card has an attack and life value. The different fantasy figures battle with each other, win up to 500x your bet!
You can almost forget with all these extra bonus features that Tower Quest also has a regular slots game. Here you can win various prizes with combinations of 10 symbols.
