Alice in Wonderland Deluxe
The genius team at Playtech have taken Lewis Carroll's classic tale of Alice in Wonderland and have transformed it into a memorable 5-reel, 20 payline progressive jackpot slot that plays host to a number of fantastic bonus features including free spins, random multipliers and pick and click mini-games.
Some might say Alice in Wonderland Deluxe looks incredibly dated, others might say it's wonderfully charming. For us, it falls somewhere in the middle... Yes, it doesn't really stand up to modern slots, however, it's a bold design that looks massively different to what slot enthusiasts are used to, and we applaud Playtech for that.
The reels are set upon a plain white background, which actually helps the colourful hand-drawn symbols to stand out and pop a little bit more. Behind the reels is a beautifully kept garden with lush grass and foliage growing up against a brick wall.
Low-paying symbols appear as your standard royal symbols, 10, J, Q, K, A whilst high-paying symbols are Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Cheshire Cat and the Duchess, all characters from the classic fairytale.
Alice in Wonderland Deluxe is a quaint game, all the game buttons are along the bottom of the screen are made to look as if they're on little signs, whilst the middle section of the action bar is covered in flowers.
On the left-hand side players can bring up the game detail screen by pressing the info button, change the number of lines they're betting on and their total bet value.
On the right-hand side of the screen there's an autospin button (that allows players to make up to 99 automated spins), a turbo button and the spin button.
Finally, in the top left-hand corner of the game screen is a totaliser with the increasing progressive jackpot figure.
Players that opt to give Alice in Wonderland Deluxe a spin could potentially win a huge 10,000x their initial stake (which isn't terrible for a game released back in 2016) with just a single spin of the reels if their luck comes in and they fill the entire reel with Alice symbols.
Sadly, the RTP of this slot is seriously lacking, sitting at a meagre 88%, however, we can overlook this slightly because of the progressive jackpot that this game comes bundled with (which is seeded at £20,000).
Alice in Wonderland Deluxe threw us off a little bit if we're being completely honest! At first glance, we almost felt as if we shouldn't enjoy this slot because it looks so dated and nothing like we've seen before (maybe even a little bit too soft), but we quickly realised that's genuinely part of the game's overall charm.
We really didn't like the low RTP, even for a jackpot slot it certainly could have been higher, but the game manages to scrape some points back thanks to the features. There are some pretty nifty bonuses here that we genuinely found enjoyable.
