In our opinion, the Hairway to Heaven video slot ranks among the very best RealTime Gaming has to offer, and for that matter, the online casinos accepting US players. It is the exactly what a video slot should be – entertaining, fun to play, with plenty of bonuses and features to give the players chance to win a lot of money, while not requiring large bets. And for those high rollers who prefer to do so, the slot offers bets as high as $300 per spin, certainly among the video slots with the highest betting limits.
Hairway to Heaven is a 5-reel, 50-line virtual slot machine that offers three different bonus features, all based on free spins, an expanding wild symbol and two progressive jackpots. The casino game is loosely based on the character Rapunzel and a prince who always tries to climb the tower, yet never seems to succeed. The payout table is generous enough, but the real strength of this video slot is the bonus feature, of which we have three different ones. The bonus feature is triggered by 3 or more consecutive scattered symbols, starting from the first line, the scattered being the prince icons. The princess, on the other side, shows only on reel 3, but it is an expanding wild, substitutes for a scattered symbol and doubles the win, during regular play. Let’s get back to the Hairway to Heaven bonus features, and take a look at each one. Note that which one of the three you will get is determined at random:
- Hairway to Heaven – the best feature and the real money maker is the bonus that is the namesake of the game, Hairway to Heaven. During this feature, 5, 7, 10, 15 or 20 free games are granted, during which the wild Princess symbol is held on reel 3 for the entire duration. The best part is that there is a price multiplier that matches the free game number, for example, if you get 10 free spins, the 3rd spin will have a prize multiplier of 3x the payout table, the 9th free spin will have a prize multiplier of 9x the win, etc. Clearly, if you get the 20 free spins, the win of your last free game will be multiplied 20 times, making for one gigantic payout, no matter the bet you have placed. This feature cannot be re-triggered.
- Damsels In Distress – While not as generous as the “Hairway to Heaven” bonus feature, Damsels In Distress also offers a good chance to win big. 8 free games are awarded, during which the Princess can appear on reels 2, 3 and 4, which would make for a very large win, especially considering that prizes are doubled when Princess is part of the winning combination. Even better, the bonus can be re-triggered.
- Princess Pays – 10 free games are awarded, during which pays that include substitute Princess are tripled. One extra free game is awarded, when the Princess appears on reel 3, regardless of outcome of the spin. This feature cannot be re-triggered.
Feature Guarantee is part of this video slot, as well. When placing a bet at Hairway to Heaven, a portion of the wager is set aside as “FG Bet” or Feature Guarantee. This option ensures that you will get a bonus feature within 125 or you can opt out to trigger the “Feature Guarantee” at any time and see if you are lucky enough to get the bonus. The chance to trigger the bonus with the Feature Guarantee is displayed at all times on the top right corner of the video slot.
And finally, Hairway to Heaven also offers two progressive jackpots, one Minor and another Major. The jackpots are won at random, i.e. they don’t require any special winning combinations, nor does the bet size affect your chance of winning. As a guideline, the Minor jackpot is won most often somewhere around the $400 mark and the Major jackpot is won around the $1,500 mark.
