Overview: Genius inventor Nikola Tesla is the inspiration for this innovative slot game from developer Yggdrasil (in partnership with Rabcat Gambling). The creative team have done a fantastic job illustrating this game: stunning graphics abound in Telsa's Steampunk influenced laboratory, packed with gloriously eccentric gadgets and devices made of brass, leather and pulsing with electicity.
This is a 5 reel, 26 payline game with Wild, Scatter, free spins and bonus features.
High paying symbols include steampunk goggles, a watch, and a vial of electrified liquid. Playing card symbols make up the lower paying symbols.
Tesla himself acts as the wild symbol in this game. He substitutes for all the other symbols in the game except for the scatter. The scatters are the key to winning up to 12 free spins if you land 3 or more on the reels.
Before your free spins games, a Fixed Wild symbol appears in the middle of the reels. If you land a Level-Up Scatter Symbol during the free spins, an extra Fixed Wild appears, up to 5 in total.
At the core of this game, and keys to big wins, is the Energy Burst Feature. Land 3 matching symbols on the reels and a scatter on the third reel to trigger the Energy Burst Feature with one of 3 bonus features.
Low paying symbols generate 3 Bonus Spins, while The Capacitor, Goggles and Watch symbols generate 5 Bonus Spins:
Energy Burst Exploding Wild Feature: Spin with 2-3 randomly selected symbols being replaced by Fixed Wild Symbols.
Energy Burst Wild Substitution Feature: Spin with a random symbol (Ace, Capacitor or Goggles) selected as a bonus icon; if you spin the symbol it will morph into a Wild.
Energy Burst Reel Clone Feature: Spin with three random reels that always have the same symbol configuration to boost winning chances.
Overall this is another fantastic looking game from Yggdrasil. You can play on both desktop and mobile.Where to play Nikola Teslas Incredible Machine Slot? Play Nikola Tesla's Incredible Machine for free at Vegas Hero Casino and also Genesis Casino
Overview: When 3D slots developers Betsoft decide to tackle a theme you know you're in for a visual treat and Miles Bellhouse and His Curious Machine is no exception!
The name of this game is a bit of a mouthful and we do wonder if it's put players off. It'd be a shame to miss this game though - it's an original 3D slot that is certainly worth trying in free play mode.
The game tells the story of Miles Bellhouse, inventor and genius, who has built a wondrous time machine. The evil General Traytor will stop at nothing to steal the technology and so Miles, accompanied by his robot Gizmo, flees through time to protect his invention!
This is a 5 reel, 30 payline video slot with plenty of features to engage you as you journal into the past and into the future with Miles and Gizmo.
The reels are set inside Mile's laboratory and look stunning! On the reels you'll see Miles, General Traytor and Gizmo, alongside symbols depicting various mechanical tools, gadgets and city scenes.
Miles stands on the right of the screen, by the spin button, waiting for you to play. Press the Max Bet button and Miles will leap into action, pulling levers and thumping buttons on his control panel!
The Wild Vortex symbol substitutes for all other symbols except for the scatter symbols. This is no standard, boring Wild symbol however - whenever it appears and there is no win triggered then it spins all the surrounding icons in a rapid counter-clockwise whirl creating new chances of landing a win.
A Land of the Dinosaur bonus game is triggered when you hit three or more Dinosaur scatter symbols anywhere on the reels.
Look out for the cool Reel Rewind Second Chance feature. This bonus feature is randomly triggered if no wins occur on your spin. One of the reels will randomly rewind giving you another chance to win.
If you're a fan of Jules Verne and Dr Who then Miles Bellhouse and His Curious Machine is a must play!Where to play Miles Bellhouse and His Curious Machine Slot? Play for free at Drake Casino
Overview: Old Skool, the developers of Temperance slot game have obviously taken inspiration from the smash hit BioShock video game when designing this game.
What we have a here is a gorgeous looking 5 reel, 20 line (always active) slot set in a dystopian underwater city called Temperance.
Amazingly, the game kicks off with (we believe) Charles Trenet singing La mer! It's a neat touch to a unique game and we congratulate Old Skool for trying something different.
The games reels are set against the city backdrop, and building on the Steampunk theme there are gears, pipes and cogs surrounding your games controls.
On the reels you'll find symbols depicting various Steampunk tools including diving helmet, radio, clock and sonar plus playing card symbols.
A male and female treasure hunters are the game's key symbols. The male acts as a Wild symbol and he replaces other symbols except the female treasure hunter Free Spins symbol and the Bonus symbol. He is the highest paying symbol and can trigger a payout 1000x your stake.
The female treasure hunter is the Free Spins symbol. Land three of her symbol on the reels to trigger the Temperance free spins feature.
The number of the free spins will depend on the number of Free Spin icons you land on the Reels. During the free spins games, 3 Extra Stacked Wilds feature come into play plus you get a multiplier.
Landing 3 bonus scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5 will trigger the survival bonus feature. This is a multi-stage 'pick me' style game with the chance to find coins, advances to next levels, win all prizes icons and the 'collect' icon which ends the round.

In the game's free spins mode you get up to three Mystery Reels with each free spin turning Reel 2, 3 or 4 into a Mystery Reel at random. Mystery reels are loaded with stacks of Mystery Symbols that can appear on every spin. Landing scatter symbols during the free spins feature will re-trigger free spins.
Overview: Released in 2012, Microgaming's Phantom Cash was one of the first ever Steampunk themed slots games. The game features two Victorian Ghost Hunters called Thurmingham and Carstairs who are on a quest to rid a haunted mansion of its ghouls and ghosts.
The game has 5 reels, 25 (fixed) paylines and features very nice animated graphics as well as a superb cinematic soundtrack that will remind you of Tim Burton movies, no doubt!
On the reels you'll find a Mansion scatter symbol, Thurmingham and Carstairs ghosthunter symbols, 4 different ghosts and playing card symbols.
Phantom Cash has two wild multiplier symbols with Thurmingham appearing on reel 1 and Carstairs on reel 5, awarding a 2x multiplier during any substituted wins. They substitute for all other symbols except the scatter.
3 or more scatter symbols triggers the Ghost Zap feature. Your ghost meter starts at 8 and tells you how many ghosts you need to capture. The ghostbusters will assist you by zapping ghosts, winning you a Bonus Prize of 2x your triggering bet for each ghost they capture. If Thurmingham and Carstairs appear on the same row you will win 4x your bet.
You can retrigger the feature to increase the ghost meter by 8 and the round ends when the ghost meter reaches zero.
Overview: Swedish developer Net Entertainment were one of the first developers to launch a Steampunk inspired game. Steam Tower is set in the 19th century Victorian era and takes inspiration from the industrial design of the period. The game is a 5-reel, 15 payline video slot featuring Stacked Wilds and Free Spins and Multiplier.
The plot of this game challenges you to climb a steam tower to rescue a princess from an evil dragon. (We're not too sure why Net Entertainment decided to put a dragon in a Victorian era themed game, to be honest!)
On the reels you'll find the hero of the game: a gentleman with a moustache wearing a steam pipe hat and armed with a grappling hook.
Also on the reels are a princess and dragon symbols, a steam tower and playing card symbols in a Steampunk/industrial style complete cogs and gears.
As you spin the reels a soundtrack plays that reminds us of the BBC series Sherlock - very nice!
A wild during the main game replaces all symbols in the game, no exceptions. If you get a stacked wild - the mustachioed hero character - but it’s not covering the whole reel, it gives you bigger wins. However, if the stacked wild covers the whole reel, you’re rewarded with 10 Free Spins.
In addition to this, every time you get the grappling hook wild during free spins, you receive 2 more Free Spins while grappling your way up one floor. Get the wild on a spin at least 15 times and you will reach the top of the tower. When you reach the top, you will win a 7,000 coins bonus for rescuing the princess.
You start with a 2x multiplier and build up your multiplier meter, up to 7x for every 3 floors of the tower you climb. You can keep track of your next multiplier increase on the tower meter.
Overview: Fans of Steampunk will appreciate the effort that has gone into this quirky game from developer Pocket Games Soft. This is a slot game that looks like no other slot we've seen before and it's worth trying out if you're looking for something different.
The game's marketing sets the scene with a tale of a universe that "follows a cycle of creation, day to night, light and dark, two halves that together complete the cycle of life in the universe. Within time and space, lies the "Fourth Dimension". It exists between the voids and cracks of space that disappear as soon as they appear."
You enter this game world as a time traveler of the Fourth Dimension with the ability to unlock the wheel of destiny to bring you wealth!
Instead of 3 or 5 reels you get an innovative three-tiered roulette wheel which uses steam to rotate its gears. The roulette wheels represent the Sun, Moon and Stars.
When the Moon and Star symbols align you will be rewarded with free re-spins. The Sun symbol appears only one time on each spin, but once the Sun Symbol appears on the three-tiered roulette a bonus game is triggered that allows you to win prizes. With each spin there is the chance to double your winnings with the gamble feature.
You can play Steampunk: Wheel of Destiny Slot on Android and iOS devices as well as desktop. This is a medium volatility slot with a Return to Player (RTP) of 95.62% and a maximum win of 500x your wager.
