Slots are all a bit intense these days, aren’t they? It’s all grim-faced Vikings or scary-looking Greek gods, spooky old temples or massive and ornate Chinese palaces.
If you agree with us and think that slots just need to relax a little bit, then a quick spin on Mad Hatters is surely enough to give you a bit of a break from all the doom and gloom. With zany visuals and potentially massive payouts, is it time to go a little bit mad or is this game just nuts? Let’s find out in our Mad Hatters slot review.
If you hadn’t already guessed, this slot is based around the weird and wonderful characters at the Mad Hatter’s tea party in the classic Lewis Carroll book Alice in Wonderland, though the Hatter seems to have gained a few friends since then. What hasn’t changed is that the Hatter loves to entertain, and that’s obvious from the sheer number of delicious looking sweet treats to be found at his table making up the low-value symbols.
While Mad Hatters slot game isn’t the most modern-looking of slots the symbols are all unique at least, and they’re all fantastically detailed, from the lovely looking cakes and treats to the cuckoo clock to the hatter himself and the rabbit in a hat. There is an equally zany soundtrack bouncing along in the background so that you might feel a little mad yourself before long.
Despite the fun and zany imagery though, this slot is still very low variance, so the excitement on the reels doesn’t quite match the excitement behind the scenes. There are five reels and three rows to play with, as well as 30 paylines to bet on, while the maximum bet is reasonably sized at £/$/€75, which all allows for a maximum jackpot of 20,000x your stake as well as a reasonable RTP of 96.08%. On top of this, there is also a cool wild feature, represented by the top hat, which allows you to stack wilds in groups of three to make even more combinations. The wild can also replace other symbols as in other games, also letting you maximize the value of the icons on screen.
Alongside all these fun and games there are also a couple of interesting bonuses to play with. The first of these is activated by landing three Cuckoo Clock scatters on the reels, which opens a very simple pick and win game. You don’t even have to go very far, because the game just asks you to pick from the symbols on the reels, and you can make over 11,000x your stake this way! The second bonus is a rather more traditional free spins bonus, during which players may gain between 10 and 50 free spins depending on how many scatters they land. There’s also a 2x bonus for all the wins gained during those free spins, further sweetening the deal.
For a game about a mad person, the Mad Hatters slot game doesn’t offer much in the way of madness in its gameplay, though the visuals are as fun and zany as you’re likely to find anywhere else. Having said that the prizes are also pretty great, with an amazing maximum win of 20,000x your stake possible, so you’d certainly have to be mad to miss out!
