Popular online slots developer, Real Time Gaming’s Hairway to Heaven progressive video slot plays on the much-loved fairytale theme for its theme, channelling the Brothers Grimm story of Rapunzel.
This 50-payline, five reel slot features everything you would expect to find in a slot inspired by the fictional long-haired maiden. Although Hairway to Heaven is set against the dark backdrop of a spooky – presumably enchanted – forest, the reels themselves are distinctly merry and colourful.
There is an unmistakable yet subtle tongue-in-cheek air to the Hairway to Heaven slot, with Rapunzel interrupting the light-hearted folksy background music to break into a droll “fa-la-la-la” whenever her symbol helps complete a winning payline. Similarly, the prince vainly attempts to scale the tower wall by clinging to Rapunzel’s hair whenever he helps out with a Hairway to Heaven win.
Even the font used for the Hairway to Heaven logo and any other letters that appear in the slot bears a striking resemblance to the famous Disney logo – this slot is, indeed, rather Disney-esque.
Rapunzel’s Expanding Wilds Multiply Wins
Rapunzel herself graces the reels as the Hairway to Heaven wild, which can, in addition to being able to stand in for any other symbol and multiply wins, expand to cover the whole of Reel 3 to greatly improve players’ odds of landing a winning spin.
Pick-Em with Rapunzel’s Prince Feature
The pick-em feature is triggered whenever players land three or more scatter symbols – in the form of the handsome prince – anywhere on the reels. When this happens, Hairway to Heaven players will be taken to a new screen to select one of three princes to gain access to one of three bonus features.
- Damsels in Distress Dish out Free Spins
The Hairway to Heaven Damsel in Distress bonus round awards players eight fee spins. During these free spins, the wild princess can appear on Reels 2 and 4 as well as Reel 3 and landing the prince again will trigger another eight free Hairway to Heaven spins.
- Princess Pays up Free Spins and Triple Multiplier
The next Hairway to Heaven bonus feature that may be triggered is called Princess Pays. In this bonus round, players are granted 10 free spins with a triple multiplier. Although this Hairway to Heaven bonus cannot be retriggered, it is possible to win one additional free spin by landing the princess on Reel 3.
- Progressive Jackpots Triggered at Random
The third bonus feature in this game is entitled Hairway to Heaven and presented with between five and 20 free spins, with an equivalent multiplier, depending on the number of prince scatter symbols landed. What’s more, the princess wild expands to cover the third reel for the duration of these free spins. Note that this Hairway to Heaven feature cannot be retriggered.
Wide Coin Range Randomly Triggered Progressive Jackpot
Players can adjust the number of lines on which they wager in the Hairway to Heaven slot and may bet between 0.01 and 5.00 credits per line, making the game accessible to newcomers and experienced players alike.
RTG sprinkles one last bit of magic onto the Hairway to Heaven reels by offering a progressive jackpot to players who are willing to wait for it, since it is triggered at random and may come up at the end of any game – an enticement to wager a little bit more.
