Steam Squad Features

A group of 10+ matching symbols will land you a win anywhere on the reels; they don't have to be touching or conform to any win lines. The five gems are the game’s lowest payers with the four steampunk characters providing the biggest payouts. The top regular win is 25x when a group of 20+ bearded aviators turn up.

Winning symbols stay in place but all others are removed to provide what this game calls a Winning Wipeout. New symbols can arrive and add to the existing win to continue the Wipeout sequence.

The top of each reel contains a multiplier figure and this can be applied to wins when a complete stack of matching symbols is present. This can either be done the long way with new symbols landing during the Wipeout sequence or you may be lucky enough to trigger an Amplifier. This is where a particular symbol type randomly stacks to cover the reel.

The Booster Row appears from time to time and if you manage to fill this row with winning symbols, you either get more winning symbols added to the reels or if a multiplier has been reached, this can be increased.

To experience the thrill of free spins, you will need between three and six Scatter symbols to appear at once. The result of this is up to 15 free spins with the Booster Row persisting throughout the Bonus. You can add additional spins by collecting further Scatter symbols and filing up a reel with matching symbols now increases the multiplier for all reels.

Steam Squad - Winning Wipeout

Winning Wipeout

As a group of winning symbols come together to create a win, all others are removed from the reels and new ones appear. Another matching symbol increases the win and continues the Wipeout.

Steam Squad - Amplifiers

Amplifiers

When an entire reel is filled with a matching symbol, the multiplier at the top of the reel is triggered. Some symbols can randomly stack to cover the reel and make this easier to achieve.

Steam Squad - Booster Row

Booster Row

As the gold frame outlines a row, the multiplier can be increased if it's filled with winning symbols or additional winning symbols are added to the existing combo.

Steam Squad - Free Spins

Free Spins

Between three and six Scatters award up to 15 free spins and now the multiplier figures can really start to explode. When a row is filled with matching symbols, all of the multipliers are increased and the Booster Row is present on every spin.

Steam Squad Review

It's been a while since a steampunk slot has crossed my path so I was kind of excited to see what has changed in this genre. The truth is, it's much the same as it always was and Red Tiger hasn't exactly pushed the boundaries with this one. However, that isn't a huge complaint as there are still a lot of entertaining moments to be found and some attractive win sequences can also arrive.

Design

The obligatory futuristic yet Dickensian-looking characters are operating some form of flying machine as we make our way through the clouds while enjoying an epic score. As you pass by these buildings in the clouds, the cogs are turning behind the reels and the multiplier amounts sit tantalisingly at the top like an old-fashioned cash register. It's all very typical stuff and fans of this genre will get most of what they are expecting right here.

Gameplay

The Base game modifiers can spring into action at any moment, awarding multiplier figures and additional winning symbols whenever that Booster Row appears. Scatter Pays will keep you entertained while non-winning symbols are ushered on their way and the Free Spins round flows naturally from the Base game but with a couple of extra perks to remind you that you are in the promised land.

Win Potential

Considering the high volatility, I was expecting a larger max win; the top prize here is very modest at just 2,965x. The hit frequency is extremely decent, which seems kind of contradictory to the high volatility but this goes to show how frequently you will land wins that are smaller than your stake amount. You will need to keep an eye on your balance throughout this adventure. The RTP is a little under 96%.

My Verdict

It's always nice to check back in with a genre that has been ever so slightly out of favour in recent months. Our obsession seems to have waned and it remains to be seen if Steam Squad can reignite the spark of enthusiasm for steampunk once again. A decent effort with fun modifiers could make this one to watch.
