This ain’t your mother’s tea party! (A wild time you hat better depp-end on!)
The Wild Hatter is Red Tiger’s first foray into Wonderland, and while many slots go straight for the (queen of) hearts, this game provider stopped off at a tea party for a bit of a natter with the world’s wildest Hatter!
The Wild Hatter is a 5-reel slot with 30 possible paylines, an RTP of 94.8%, and a high level of volatility. The game loads in a swirl of psychedelic colours around a maniacally grinning wild hatter, whose flaming orange hair and bright green hat make him more than a little familiar…
The game design is truly beautiful: the game grid is set up like a chess board, if the teams were deep purple versus purple paisley. This board is propped up between two gate posts and rests on a checkered lawn with a forest of mushrooms in the foreground, complete with an adorable caterpillar, who looks to be on the verge of speaking.
A subtle animation of floating fairy dust lends this game an air of magic and mystique. The gameplay is smooth and the animations are fun to watch, especially the Wild Hatter, who does a shoulder shimmy whenever he appears on screen. Altogether this is an incredibly visually appealing game.
The calculated maximum multiplier of the game is 3333x, with a minimum stake of 10 cents and a maximum of R500.
This slot has some fantastic Alice in Wonderland themed symbols with great animations on paylines. The highest value symbols in descending order are the black Cheshire cat, gold pocket watch, blue argyle top-hat, a heart-spotted teapot, a knight chess piece, and the usual A, K, Q, J, and 10.
The Wild Hatter symbol is a grinning Johnny Depp-like character – complete with orange locks and fetching top-hat, this madcap symbol both acts as the wild and triggers the respin and multiplier features.
Suddenly a wild Hatter appears!
When a Wild Hatter hits the reels he immediately tosses his hat into the air, which makes it spin and expand until it reveals a random symbol. The hat then comes to a rest at the top of the reels displaying the symbol which also fills the reel below the hat and is locked into position.
All subsequent symbols to hit the reels also become locked into place and trigger more respins. The aim of this bonus game is to fill the board with the special symbol – more symbols equal more money.
Any wilds that land during the bonus game will upgrade the locked symbol to one with a higher value, increasing your ultimate payout! Each successive re-spin also increases a multiplier by 1x.
This video slot is widely available online but can be reliably found at PlayLive casino.
The Wild Hatter is available to play on mobile, desktop or laptop. It is supported on iOS, Windows, Linux and Android. Recommended browsers include Safari, Chrome, Edge and Firefox.
This is a high volatility game, which means that the wins are infrequent but the jackpots are a lot bigger. Make sure you stick to your budget and use the loss limit.
The gameplay is slick, the animations are fun, and the Wild Hatter is downright batty! This is a highly entertaining game which is a blast to play, but its high volatility means that you should play carefully; make use of the loss limit tool on the auto-spinner so that you don’t lose your head chasing that elusive white rabbit!
