The Story of Alice
Everyone who had a childhood (which is everyone the last time we checked) has come across the story of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. The 1865 novel by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson AKA Lewis Carroll tells the tale of a daydreaming girl who falls through a rabbit hole into a strange world of talking animals and nonsensical happenings. So popular and influential was the book that it has been enjoyed by adults and children alike up until the present day, with many film adaptations giving visual life to the narrative.
The latest adaptation of the story is the Adventures Beyond Wonderland video slot. It’s not quite a feature length film, but it certainly does justice to the rich imagery of the novel with some stunning 3D graphics and some aptly out of this world tropes. From bright purple mushrooms to floating islands in the sky, it’s easy to tell that you’re not in Kansas any more (wrong reference, we know). Making an appearance in the game are some of the most iconic characters from the tale such as Alice herself, the Cheshire Cat and the Caterpillar.
In the best possible way, this slot machine emulates all of the nonsense and whimsy of the original story when it comes to the gameplay. For starters, the game plays with no set paylines and, instead, punters simply have to find three or more of the same icons on adjacent reels from left to right. There are 243 ways to do this in the main game with a top five in a row jackpot that will multiply the coin value by 250x.
Players can choose between a wide range of different coin denominations – from as little as 0.01 to 5.00 credits. However, gamblers should note that the coin will be multiplied by 30x when they play Adventures Beyond Wonderland. This makes for a minimum possible bet of 0.30 and a max bet of 150.00.
Cheshire Cat Spins
There are strange (and rewarding) spins a-plenty in the base game of this slot machine, but you can fall further into the beyond with a feast of bonus gameplay features that the Mad Hatter himself would be proud of. During normal spins, players will notice the Caterpillar character besides the reels blowing out bubbles at random which move along the top of reels 2, 3 and 4. Should a stack of wild Alice icons appear on reels 2, 3 or 4, she will burst the bubble to unleash the bonus reward.
This could be a simple cash prize or win multiplier worth up to x10, or it could be the ‘Drink Me Potion’ that gives Alice the strength to move grow up to 3 reels wide. If Alice does this, the slot will effectively become a 2,187 ways to win game. There is also a chance to win the progressive jackpot bonus with this mini game.
Punters will also have the chance to play with 2,187 ways to win by unlocking the free spins feature of the game. Simple find three Cheshire Cat scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5 to being a horizontal spinning adventure with Cheshire Cat wilds that lock onto the reels and expand up to 3 symbols wide.
