Hong Kong is the part of China where east meets west. The uniqueness of this former British colony has been immortalised in many books and films, but as Hong Kong Tower proves, it is a very appropriate theme for a slot game as well.
Developed by Elk Studios, the reels are set on a background which features the Hong Kong Tower itself. The symbol design and the sound effects are quite minimalistic, but the flashy colours make the game look quite vivid.
The grid is standard with 5 reels, 3 rows and a total of 99 paylines. You can’t choose the number of coins per line, but you can choose the total stake, which varies from 20p up to £100. The maximum main game jackpot is 1,500. The betting strategy option allows players to choose their own betting strategy, based on money balance, or on how useful the last spins have been.
There are no standard card symbols here. Instead, the lower value symbols represent drawings of the five elements – wood, fire, metal, earth and water. All these symbols pay 40 for a combination of 3, 60 for 4 and 80 for a combination of 5. Next we have a pink lotus, a bonsai tree, a diamond and a lucky 7. A combination of five 7s pays 1,500, whereas five diamonds across a payline activate a 1,000-coin prize.
There is also a mystery symbol which represents the game logo and a bonus symbol which is the ancient yin and yang symbol.
The RTP of Hong Kong Tower is 96.30% and the game has a higher degree of volatility, which means that you won’t win very often, but the prizes will be higher than usual, which is perfect for players willing to take risks.
The bonus game in Hong Kong Tower is called Wheels of the Sky. In order to activate this bonus you’ll need at least three red yin and yang symbols, or just one blue mystery symbol. With the mystery symbol you will get two extra lives during the bonus game, and with 4 red symbols you’ll get 1 extra life, whereas with 5 you’ll get two.
In the bonus game you will see three skyscrapers, and every one of them features a bonus wheel. The first wheel will spin and once it is done, you will receive a cash prize and then if you have more lives available, the second wheel will turn again, and if you have another life the third one as well. The third wheel offers the highest prizes.
A rather interesting mix of Chinese symbolism and Hong Kong modernism, this interesting game promises fun times and an opportunity to win some quite hefty prizes. Just get the wheels to spin and only the sky will be the limit.
