Hairway to Heaven
Online Fairy-tale Slot Hairway to Heaven
Aside from the rather obnoxious pun in the title this slot game fairs well when compared to many other online slots at the moment. Hairway to Heaven is themed on a rather comical take of the fairy-tale Rapunzel, with the characters, colour and overall whimsy to boot. The game was developed by RTG, a prominent member of this much sought after industry, and so from the get go experienced players will already have an idea of what level of slot game to expect from this one.
The theme may be one of woe and whimsy, but it’s the gameplay that features the wins and bonuses in a slot game. In this particular slot there’s 50 pay lines across the customary 5 reels for a video slot. The betting options are decent and laid out plainly and with ease of use in mind. It’s once those reels start spinning where players get a chance at the bonuses though and in Hairway to Heaven these include Wilds, Scatters, an exciting selection of bonus games and even a Progressive jackpot or two. This just might be one for the favourites’ list.
The Theme, Symbols and Betting
Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your Hairway to Heaven, so that these word plays can stop. Despite the humour laden in the title and the game, the theme of this fairy-tale is still carried out, with several features appearing to support such a claim. The backdrop and even general colour scheme has a mystical and germane thematic contribution to the atmosphere on the reels. Whilst the sound effects added to both the general atmosphere as well as the ones during spins and wins make the game dramatically more immersive.
The symbols in particular make the theme and fairy-tale come across during the gaming experience. These include the likes of, in ascending order of pay out, a key, a mirror, a picture frame, a guard and a tower symbol. Rounding off the bottom end of the scale are the never missed playing card symbols 9 through to Ace. These latter symbols also only win on 3 or more in a combination whilst the themed symbols start winning when two are lined up.
The betting on this Hairway to Heaven RTG slot is pretty diverse with 50 adjustable pay lines and a moderate betting range to play with. The line bet options alone allow for a range from 0.01 to 0.25, which when combined with 50 active pay lines makes for between 0.5 and 12.5.
Bonus Time with Hairway to Heaven Slot
This Hairway to Heaven slot game of course has a few bonuses on the reels, the first of which is represented by Rapunzel herself and is the Wild of this slot. She can substitute for other symbols, even the Scatter, as well as double the wins made with her and expand across the reel, however she only appears on the middle reel.
The Scatter is the Prince symbol and triggers one of 3 choice bonus games when 3 or more appear on the reels. Here players can either win 8 free spins with the Wild on the middle 3 reels or 10 free spins with the Wild tripling wins and adding spins when landed or finally up to 20 free spins in which a multiplier grows after each spin and a Wild is locked on the third reel. The progressive jackpots in Hairway to Heaven are triggered randomly during the game.
