Through the Looking Glass
The White Rabbit video slot features the ethereal, dreamlike theming that you would expect from a game that takes place in Wonderland. Everything is drawn beautifully, and looks just a touch strange, drawn with unusual colors and shapes that you wouldn’t see in nature as we know it. The cast of characters that appear may not be as beautiful as in some games we’ve seen, but they’re all large and detailed, and the opaque reels add a nice layered effect to the presentation.
Online casinos that include software by Big Time Gaming offer these games on a no download needed, mobile-optimized format that will allow you to play on any device you’d like, from iPhone and Android smartphones to tablets or your desktop computer. Many sites will offer a play for free version of this machine that you can test out first, but if you want to play on real money casinos, you can choose from several different coin denominations depending on your budget and preferences.
Hop to It
If you’re not familiar with the Megaways system that is used in the White Rabbit video slot, it is best to think about it as an “all ways” slot machine in which paylines are not important. Instead, all left-to-right matching combinations can win prizes, regardless of the exact positions those icons hold on each reel. Where the Megaways system differs is in the fact that the reels do not have a set number of positions on them. On each spin, each reel could have anywhere from two to seven positions, meaning it’s possible to have as many as 16,807 ways to win on any given spin.
In order to score wins, you’ll normally have to match at least three identical symbols in a row. For smaller payouts, you can try to match the various card game ranks, ranging from nines up through aces. Larger rewards come from matching green, blue, and red gems, while the Red Queen acts as the high-paying symbol. She can grant prizes worth as many at 25 times your initial stake if you hit five in a row, and even grants a small consolation award just for finding two in a row.
One Pill Makes You Larger
Where this game really stands out is in its bonus features. First, there are a couple of special symbols to look for while playing, starting with the standard wild symbols that are commonly found in most online slots. These appear on the final four reels, and can substitute for any regular icon in order to complete winning paylines. In addition, there is a scatter symbol (the White Rabbit himself) that appears on the center three reels; hit all three, and you’ll trigger 15 free spins.
These spins take place on a special set of reels that always use the full seven symbol positions on each reel. Special cupcake icons are also added to the reels; when one of these hits, the reel it appears on will be extended by one position. The maximum height is 12 positions; if you manage to get a reel to that size, you’ll retrigger additional spins. That reel will also become a Queen’s Reel, which contains additional wilds and Red Queen icons. Manage to max out all of your reels, and you’ll have 248,832 ways to win!
If you’d like, you don’t have to wait in order to trigger this game. Players have the option to purchase a “Feature Drop” at any time for the cost of 100x their spin bet. As you play, you may also collect coins, which will slowly reduce the price of this purchase. Finally, there’s also a random caterpillar feature that will add additional wilds to the screen. When this occurs, up to four new wild symbols will appear on the reels, each one coming with a 2x or 3x multiplier to any wins they take part in.
If you’re familiar with other games from Big Time Gaming, then you may already know what the Megaways machines are all about. This is one of our favorites from that series, in no small part due to the excellent free spins game that offers about as many potential ways to win as we’ve ever seen in an online slot. Combine that with the fanciful theme, and this is a truly engrossing game that’s not only exciting, but also a lot of fun to play.
If you’re not sure if that’s the kind of machine that would appeal to you, we’d recommend trying a free White Rabbit slot first, as this is definitely a very different experience than a more typical title. But we think that’s definitely for the better, and that most gamblers will love exploring this exciting new game.
