Adventures Beyond Wonderland Review
The tale of Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll is one of the most famous fairytales in the world. It follows a young girl who steps into a fantasy world and finds herself trapped there with anthropomorphic creatures. Playtech's Ash Gaming decided that it was time for the story of Alice to be made into a slot and hopefully bringing the luck of Wonderland with her.
Playing on 5-reels and up to 2,187 ways to win, Adventures Beyond Wonderland is a fairytale slot with a mighty progressive jackpot. Of course, there are free spins and other features to help you grow big in Wonderland - so what are you waiting for?
The background of this slot looks straight out of a fairytale. It features extravagant castles floating in the background along with fantastical flowers all around the reels. Naturally, it features the Caterpillar next to the reels and other characters on the symbols. Despite the fact that it does look accurate, it also looks tacky. The design feels a little rush and doesn't cause any excitement for players. What's made worse is the fact that the Caterpillar animates when he blows bubbles but it's so sticky to watch that it looks painful.
Now, you'd think there would be cool or funky music playing in the music - but that is not the case. It's soft and magical but only plays during spins. Sadly, it doesn't create any additional anticipation from the player as it just sounds a bit bland for this slot.
Honestly, there's not much to this slot aside from the fact that you set your bet and spin. The features are straightforward and all you need to do as the player is just spin. Any needed features or buttons can be found at the bottom of the reels. They don't have a specific design and it seems quite generic. The spin button is highlighted in green and the autospin button is highlighted in blue. Like most Playtech slots, you can set between 10 to 99 autospins.
With an RTP at 94.6%, you'd expect there to be a jackpot and thankfully there is. This slot contains a progressive jackpot that grows as you play and can reach massive amounts. During the base game, players can expect to win up to 350x their stake by landing 7 of the crowns through the expanded paylines. Of course, if players manage to land a 10x multiplier from the Caterpillar Bonus Bubbles, then they could win up to 3,500x their stake.
Whilst Adventures Beyond Wonderland plays decent enough, it looks like an eye-sore and incredibly outdated. The lack of animation and general life from this slot just makes it a slug to play through. Thankfully, the win potential is pretty solid and makes up for it. The base game win isn't huge, but the jackpot sure it. With the RTP at 94.6%, it's even more appetising to play. If you can play without straining your eyes at the awful design and lack of engaging features, then you could have a great time with this slot.
It's definitely a slot for jackpot hunters or high rollers with the progressive jackpot. If this sounds like you, then check out Adventures Beyond Wonderland.
