Red Tiger Gaming Stuns With The Wild Hatter Slot
Red Tiger Gaming’s new The Wild Hatter slot is like something straight out of a fantasy novel. Set against a colourful background, the game’s reels are populated by symbols that a wonderfully detailed and almost appear to come to life once spun into motion. The backdrop is the whacky Mad Hatter’s garden, overrun of course by thousands of mushrooms and closely guarded by a gate fashioned out of pure gold.
The Wild Hatter may be strikingly simple and special bonus features in short supply but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t every bit as enjoyable as any of Red Tiger’s hundreds of other online slot creations. The slot is a celebration of images and sound and being subjected to minimal interference as far as back-hand mechanics go, gameplay is smooth and unhindered.
Detailed Symbols And Sounds
The 5x4 grid of The Wild Hatter makes provision for 30 paylines. Bet increments are liberal and players need not have fat budgets in order to participate. Bets start out at as little as 0.10 credits for a spin of the reels. The 95.79% RTP is admittedly a little on the low side, but then again, we’ve encountered worse. The game remains a great deal of fun to play and there’s certainly nothing lacking as far as extreme visual stimulation goes.
Symbols are intricately designed and include a teapot, a chess piece, hat, beautiful pocket watch timepiece, an image of the famous Cheshire Cat (of course!) and last but not least, the Mad Hatter wild symbol. Lower-paying symbols are represented by playing cards 10 through Ace – all adorned in Alice in Wonderland-style royals.
Special Feature: Wild Re-Spins
As mentioned before, there isn’t a great deal to bargain on as far as special features go. But The Wild Hatter does have a special hidden card up its sleeve. The wild symbol rules this particular roost and whenever it lands anywhere on the slot’s reels, it will immediately trigger a re-spin. One randomly selected symbol will at this point lock into place. In the event that the re-spin delivers a duplicate or more of the randomly selected locked symbol, and additional re-spin will be activated.
An additional re-spin is also awarded in the event that a wild symbol lands on the reels during a re-spin already in motion. There’s also a chance of all locked symbols being upgraded to higher-paying symbols whenever a wild lands on the game’s reels with a re-spin already in play. The game may not be frightfully fancy or jam-packed with special bonus features, but it remains a slot worth giving a go, if only for the visual vacation.
