9 Mad Hats Review
The tale of Alice in Wonderland is a famous one that is beloved by millions. Wrote by Lewis Carrol in 1865, the story still lives on hundreds of years later due to the fantastical elements of the slot and the whimsical aspects of the slot.
One of the biggest characters to come out of the franchise is the strange but charming Mad Hatter. He is a beloved character and Triple Edge Studios has capitalised on this with Absolootly Mad: Mega Moolah and now 9 Mad Hats.
Playing on 5-reels with 20 paylines, this fairytale slot takes players back to Wonderland with all the best characters and delivers free spins and fixed jackpots leading to marvellous wins.
This game is exactly what you'd expect visually for an Alice in Wonderland slot. The background is purple and blue with abstract images of clocks, cards and hats. Everything looks distorted and practically bonkers - it definitely feels like a psychedelic trip.
All of the symbols on the reels are related to the books or are designed in a way that makes them feel like they could be originating from there. Of course, the slot is made even more exciting with the Mad Hatter on the left side of the screen who keeps animating in crazy ways.
To round off the slot, there is a whimsical but enchanting score playing throughout with loads of different instruments. It feels quite crazy but fits in perfectly.
There is nothing in this slot that has not been seen before but that's not to say that it isn't bad. Players will be happy with free spins, multipliers and fixed jackpots to keep the gameplay lighthearted and fun.
With this slot, the menus are the easiest thing to see and understand. At the bottom of the screen is where the spin button and bet level buttons can be found.
Most of the statistics for this slot are quite standard but that is not a negative. Firstly, the RTP is over the average standard at 96.24% and there is a medium volatility level leading to a mixture of high and low volatility wins.
Sadly, the maximum win for this slot is definitely under the acceptable level that we want to be seeing. Anything 5,000x the stake or above is seen as good, but this slot has a maximum win of 2,000x stake which is disappointing considering that is only through the fixed jackpot.
In terms of the aesthetic and the overall gameplay, 9 Mad Hats is exactly what you'd want. The graphics are quite trippy whilst the gameplay is solid in delivering thrilling moments.
Our only concern is the maximum win of 2,000x stake - which is strange considering Absolootely Mad: Mega Moolah has the progressive jackpots and a bigger maximum win in the base game. Despite this, we recommend giving this slot a try if you love Alice in Wonderland slots and are looking for something a little unusual.
