If you’re tired of the typical slot, then you might want to give Mad Hatters a try. The game, which is offered by Microgaming, has a theme that appears to be based on the idea of hats, which in this case are worn by slightly crazy characters. There is coffee, there is cake, ice cream, but there are also a couple of short people, with big hats on their heads. It’s all quite mad, as the game intended, but it’s not going to offer a superb design unfortunately. The game has for features a wild symbol, free spins, scatters and a bonus game. You get 30 lines, 5 reels and you can go after a payout of $50,000.
Betting and Prizes
Microgaming casinos will often rely on the use of up to 10 coins per line, with denominations of up to $0.25, at least in these slightly older games. You can wager a maximum of $2.50 for just one line, which would take the total to $75 if all the lines are activated.
One of the strengths of this game is the type of payout that it can give the player, if the right combo forms. You can walk away with 20,000 times what your line bet was, which could mean 200,000 coins, or $50,000 cash.
Mad Hatters Slot Features
The Mad Hat symbol is the one to give away that huge prize which I mentioned previously. You get 10x to 20,000x when you have two to five such icons arranged on a line, from left to right. Otherwise, you use this symbol as a wild, one which can’t replace the bonus or scatter icons. If the Mad Hat appears on reel 3, it can expand to take over the entire reel and to give you even more chances to get paid.
The Cuckoo Bonus is started with the help of scatter symbols that have a Cuckoo Clock on them. 3 to 5 icons scattered on adjacent reels will bring out a feature where you have to pick up to three clocks, getting wins of up to 11,100 coins from them.
One other type of scatter can appear, the one which shows a rabbit coming out of a magician’s hat. Once again, you get these symbols to appear anywhere on the reels, and with 3 to 5 you get 10 to 50 free spins, plus payouts of 5x to 300x the total wager. The free spins will get an extra wild to use as a substitute, for even better chances of winning something.
Theme & Design
While I’m no huge fan of the graphics style in use here, I do see only related symbols, either with weird characters which seem to be taken from Alice in Wonderland, or with things you might enjoy while having tea or coffee. As I said, it’s not a modern design, but it works well enough in this case.
Mad Hatters slot can be an impressive game, especially since it doesn’t follow standard recipes, and actually tries to surprise with features and with its prizes.
