Have you ever been to Hong Kong and experienced the breath-taking views from the top of the Hong Kong Tower? Didn’t think so. Do you reckon you’ll make it there anytime soon? Nah, thought not. Elk Studios can offer you the next best thing, though, as their upcoming game release transports you to the Far East, and offers you the chance to experience the sights and sounds of the Hong Kong Tower.
The game is set for launch later this week, and while it might not be the most typical theme for a slot game, but bear with us, and trust that you’re going to love it. It’s an East-meets-West fantasy with unique features and compelling gameplay.
About The Hong Kong Tower Slot
Having been a British colony for much of its history, Hong Kong is one of those places where East meets West in the most intriguing of ways, and this is something that comes across strongly in the design of the Hong Kong Tower slot. While there are flavours of ancient orientalism in the Yin and Yang, lotus blossom and elemental symbols, these are lit up in the neon colours which dominate the skyline of modern Hong Kong.
Despite the tower of the title not actually being a real building in the city, its design draws heavily on local architecture, and is made to look right at home in the Hong Kong skyline.
The 5 reel, 99 payline slot not only looks fresh and innovative, but also brings into play some genuinely unique and forward thinking features. Despite not having a wild symbol in the game as we might recognise it normally, there is a ‘mystery’ symbol, which once in play will transform into any (though a specific) other symbol.
There are scatters, however, and landing three of more scatter symbols triggers the ‘Reels in the Sky’ bonus round, where you get to spin on three high paying reels separate to the main game. In the game, these reels are presented sitting atop the three apexes of the eponymous tower, with the chance to spin each of them in turn, moving to a higher level with each progression.
There’s a segment on each reel which ends the bonus round, however if you land 4 scatters when you launch the round, you’ll get one extra life, while you’ll get 2 extra lives if you’ve landed with 5 scatters.
Watch The Preview
Seeing as the Hong Kong Tower slot is all about the visuals and experience, it makes sense that the best way to get a sense of what to expect from the game is to see it in action.
That’s why Elk Studios has put together an exclusive preview video demonstrating the gameplay of the slot, as well as its main features. Take a minute to give it a watch, as it’ll convince you in no time that this is the next slot you want to be playing.
Like what you saw? You won't have to wait long to try it out for yourself, as Hong Kong Tower is set for release on Wednesday 5th April.
