NetEnt release Steam Tower Pokies
Never one to shy away from the spotlight, the crew at NetEntertainment have come up with yet another legendary pokies game to add to their already gleaming repertoire. Steam Tower has kept players waiting with baited breath since word got out about its release, with the wait finally over as of the end of February. This incredible game is everything we hoped it would be and more, as NetEnt prove time and time again that we never quite know what they are capable of.
Steam Tower takes on a steampunk theme that follows a strapping hipster gentleman on his quest to save the princess from the evil dragon. Set against a Victorian era 19th century backdrop, the graphics are of A+ quality, not that we’d expect anything less from NetEnt. Using an innovative gameplay format, players have the chance to trigger free spins in order to level up within the steam tower to get closer to rescuing the princess. Triggering this bonus round also increases multipliers by magnitudes, resulting in the possibility to rack up some awesome winnings.
Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, Simon Hammon, commented “Steam Tower is packed full of innovative developments and progressive features that NetEnt are renowned for. The Victorian era is synonymous with advancement and improvement, which reflects our own mission to drive the online casino market forward.” And we think they certainly nailed that one!
Steam Tower is an exciting new online slots game and can be found for free play or real money wagers at several of our recommended casinos.

Guts Casino bans German players
In a move that shocked players, gaming software providers and online casino operators, Germany has reached the decision to fine any German punter making real money bets at foreign run casinos. While the laws regarding online casinos in Germany have always been a hot topic, this decision came as a blow as this is the first time the player themselves would be punished rather than the casino operator.
To ensure they play no part in this mistreatment of customers, Guts Casino made the difficult decision to restrict German players from the casino entirely. Guts is confident the regulation will soon be overturned, but in order to protect loyal players they are closing down any accounts held by German players. Let’s hope the same thing never happens for Australians!
German players can still legally bet online, but the casino must hold a German license.
