Our Communications Manager, Jekaterina Dubnicka, sat down for an in-depth conversation with Panter Spyrou, Head of Game Studio at Mancala Gaming, to shine some light on the brand-new slot Epic Tower.

Epic Tower is an exciting game that combines progressive multipliers with expanding reels. It is all about building a fortress as high as possible before it gets burned down by a monstrous dragon. Volatile and brimming with payout potential, it's already proven a hit in the iGaming community.

We take a deep dive into the creative process behind the game, its medieval theme, and why Spyrou believes it's one of his company's best productions yet.

The Medieval Fantasy Inspiration of Epic Tower

One of the stand-out elements of Epic Tower is its distinctive theme. Developing a robust and layered backstory can add depth, while the most successful slot providers are adept at combining engaging storylines with exciting mechanics.

Spyrou believes they got the balance just right with Epic Tower:

"Epic Tower's medieval fantasy theme draws inspiration from the epic world of castles, knights, and medieval lore. Moreover, innovative game mechanics, like the Tower Building feature and the Cascading Symbols, are adding to the experience and keeping players excited."

Extrapolating on the game's mechanics, Spyrou breaks down how players can win massive prizes.

"The Tower Building feature is a central element that levels and increases with each cascade, locking in additional winning lines and Tower multipliers. It (the multipliers) starts from the fourth level, becomes equal to two and grows dramatically with each of the three levels. The max tower level is 33 by 3, providing players with the opportunity to continue playing with exciting multipliers until the cascade is finished."

"The max. win is 27,500x, which is huge."

The Icons and Symbols of Epic Tower

Every slot needs a cast, and in its whimsical icons, Epic Tower has picked its all-star ensemble with precision.

Referring to the game's use of a hammer and a crown, Spyrou states that every element stays true to the backstory: "The unique symbols draw inspiration from iconic elements of medieval fantasy. These symbols are specially designed to boost the overall gaming experience by immersing players in a world of magic, and adventure."

The most valuable symbol, however, is the wild multiplier in the bonus game - they come in massively useful when attempting to build the multiplier.

Keep an eye out for the lightning-shaped scatter symbol - three of these will transport players into a bonus game.

Tailoring Epic Tower for Its Audience

Mancala Gaming markets itself as a developer that builds games exclusively for millennials. In Epic Tower, Spyrou explains how its use of modern gameplay techniques makes it a hit among this target audience.

He said, "The medieval fantasy theme, together with innovative features like the Tower Building feature and unique symbol designs, connects with millennials, in my opinion. They are looking for a mix of elements in their game experience."

He also points to the mobile and tablet-friendly design.

"The game is specially designed for mobile devices, which is important given millennials' on-the-go lifestyle."

The Final Secret Question Unfolded

Concluding the interview, Jekaterina Dubnicka suggests further future collaborations with Mancala Gaming.
