There’s money in this tower, but it’s sitting firmly in the penthouse where you won’t often reach.
The Money Tower slot is a game which certainly lives up to its name. There is a ton of cash available here with a jackpot of 300,000, in fact.
However, you stand next-to-no-chance of making a ton of cash, which is one of the biggest failings of this Cayetano slot; that and the low return to player rate.
It is fair to say that Cayetano are not the biggest casino game manufacturer in the world. In fact, most people who dabble in casino slots online, on the odd occasion, will not know who they are.
You may even struggle to find experienced online slot players who know who they are; they are traditionally at Vegas casinos at best, but even then they don’t compete with the likes of IGT or Scientific Gaming machines.
Which explains the eye-popping house edge on this Money Tower mobile slot, set at a whopping 5.48%. We could understand having a casino game with a high house edge like this if it were a progressive jackpot, but nope.
This is your standard 5 reel video slot with the odds firmly swung towards the house.
Granted, this is a medium volatility slot with a low minimum bet of 0.20 a spin, so it is not dreadfully difficult to get into.
The wins are unlikely to come as fast or as large as you want, though. So we are marking this game down simply for trying its luck with that house edge.
There is no need. Even a 4% house edge would have attracted players and still made money for everybody involved – just look at slots like Poltava by Elk – hard-hitting, but far better returns.
For a real money slot machine from a smaller company who have less resources to play with than the big guys, this game is certainly visually appealing.
The graphics are nice and smooth, and the climbing up the tower (or falling, if you are unlucky) with every spin is truly wonderful.
It is not a ‘blow your socks off’ design, but it does look good on the eye.
Since you are likely going to need to play this for a long while, no doubt confused about how slow those wins are coming in, it should (at least) easy to look at.
The Sky Ring Bonus is a randomly-triggered feature that could pop up any time you are playing the Money Tower game, but don’t expect it to be often.
With this feature, you will be spinning a wheel which could reward you with up to 1000x your initial bet.
Sometimes your elevator is going to struggle a little bit with the climb to the top of that money tower. This will cause it to plummet a level.
Don’t worry, as it falls (while you are screaming for dear life), some new symbols will move up onto the reels which almost always creates a win.
On occasion, up to eight symbols on reels will change into wilds or scatters. This is a very rare feature, and we are not sure that we triggered it that often.
The real money is in the Money Tower free spins bonus games . You will have up to 25 free spins – which is a hefty number.
Last time we saw that many free spins were in the Immortal Romance slot, and you have to play a while to unlock that feature.
There will be a multiplier attached dependent on the number of scatters you get. This will either be 2x, 3x or 5x.
Not too shabby for a 10 payline slot machine online.
Honestly, no. We are all for supporting smaller game developers, but the huge house edge is borderline offensive.
There seems to be no need for it beyond greed. If it was brought down to about 4-3%, then this game would rank higher for us.
The randomly-triggered features are awesome, and the free spins mode is great too. Add that the Money Tower phone slot looks great, not just online, and this had plenty of potential.
However, with that house edge, we would be failing as slot game reviewers if we gave this more than 2-stars.
