There’s no shortage of fairytale-based slots online these days, and most of them are pretty accomplished. There is also an abundance of slots based on the psychedelic musings of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, and slot developer Microgaming’s Mad Hatters sits somewhere between Alice’s Wonderland and Microgaming’s own voodoo take on the tale, the frankly bonkers Alaxe in Zombieland.
Alice in Wonderland… But Not as You Know It!
Mad Hatters, also from Microgaming, doesn’t quite follow the exquisitely-drawn style of Alice’s Wonderland, but it does have a nice style of its own. The mad hatter of this game looks more like a casualty from one Glastonbury too many – all stripey flares and goblin hat – while Tweedledum and Tweedledee are more munchkins that lard-asses.
Trigger a 20,000 Coin Jackpot
Elsewhere on the reels, there are various images from the Mad Hatter’s tea party, such as a teapot, cake, sundaes and tea. The MAD hat is the Wild and substitutes for all regular symbols other than the Scatters. Five Wilds pays out a 20,000 coin jackpot. The Wild expands if appearing on the third reel. The Cuckoo Bonus is activated if you land three or more Cuckoo Clocks on the reels anywhere. Choose up to three cuckoo clocks and you will win cash.
Earn up to 50 Free Spins
Meanwhile, three or more Scattered March Hare icons triggers a Free Spins round. Depending on how many Scatters you land you will win more spins, so three Scatters awards 10 spins, four Scatters 25 spins and five Scatters 50 spins. All wins are multiplied by two and you will receive a random extra Wild to bolster your wins.
The game certainly puts the ‘Mad’ into ‘Mad Hatters’ and the bonus features will keep slots players coming back for more too. I found the free spins round to be really lucrative, especially with the extra Wild, and hit over 12,000 coins the two times I hit it. Don’t be late for this one.
