You may have read the title of this one and immediately thought of the song, Stairway to Heaven. Us too. But it’s actually got nothing to do with it. This slot was released by RTG way back in 2012, and it basically tells the story of Rapunzel, who was locked in a tower for years before a prince came along to try and save her. She lets her hair down from her tower so that he can climb up and visit her there. At the end of the fairytale, she manages to escape from the tower before cutting her hair off and running away with the prince – or at least, that’s what occurs in the happy ending version.

With this being the case, you can expect to see a variety of fairy tale symbols on the reels of Hairway to Heaven. These include the standard playing card symbols, the gold key, the mirror and hairbrush, the prince’s sigil and a tower guard.

The overall setup contains five reels and three rows in total. This is a standard affair for an online slot, while RTG has also taken the opportunity to add a set of 50 paylines to the game. You do have the option of altering how many of the lines are in action per spin just by using the relevant arrow buttons at the bottom of the reels. It is also there that you can change your bet. Hairway to Heaven offers up the possibility of wagering between 1p and 10p per active line. This means that the maximum bet possibility in the slot stands at £5 per spin.

Special Features

If you utilise the Feature Guarantee button, then this ensures that one of the three features mentioned below will be triggered within a given number of spins. You simply need to watch the meter as it turns from red to green and then accept the instant trigger of the feature. A compulsory additional bet of 10% is taken for this.

Plus, at the end of any of your standard spins, you have the opportunity to win one of the progressive jackpot totals. These can be seen on display at the very top of the game screen, increasing whenever someone places a bet on Hairway to Heaven.

Wild

The princess Rapunzel herself is the symbol that operates as this game’s wild addition. As such, if she ever comes into view, she will substitute for all the other standard symbols. During base gameplay, Rapunzel will only show up on the third reel. The great perk about the wild is that it will also substitute for the scatter symbol, too.

Additionally, if she does appear she will expand to cover the entirety of reel three prior to pays being awarded. Finally, if the princess does manage to form a winning combination, she will double the pay-out that you receive for it.

Scatter

The prince who is on his way to rescue Rapunzel is the symbol that counts as the slot’s scatter addition. Scatter wins are multiplied by your total bet for that round, with 25x your stake able to be won from five appearing anywhere.

Additionally, if three or more show up, you’ll activate the game’s feature round. This requires you to select one of the prince scatters to reveal your reward.

  • Damsel in Distress – If you reveal this feature round behind one of the prince scatters, you’ll be on the receiving end of eight free spins. During this particular round, the princess wild can appear on the three central reels. Meanwhile, any three or more prince scatters appearing left to right during the feature will award you with eight additional free spins.
  • Princess Pays – You’ll get 10 free spins of the reels if this is revealed behind a prince scatter. If you manage to form any wins that include the princess wild symbol during it then the pay-out for such will be tripled. An extra free spin is granted to you whenever Rapunzel appears on the third reel and this is not a feature that you’re able to re-trigger.
  • Hairway to Heaven – Revealing this feature round will grant you between five and 20 free spins as a reward. The princess wild symbol will be held in place covering the entirety of reel three for the duration of it. The prize multiplier that is in operation matches the number of free spins you have won.
