About The Wild Hatter Slot
The fairytale-inspired slot uses 5 reels, 4 rows and 30 pay-lines. They reward left to right on adjacent reels starting from the leftmost one. The game lets you play with wagers from 0.10 to 60 credits on all kinds of devices. Its RTP is a bit low – 92.12%. This is due to the presence of 3 progressive jackpots the Hourly, Daily and Mega Jackpot. As their names suggest, one lucky player wins every hour and every day one of the first two jackpots.
The slot includes a Respin + Multiplier feature. It triggers through the Mad Hatter wild. It locks random matching symbols on the reels, includes a multiplier that increases. It also upgrades the locked symbols when you land another wild. Thanks to these features, you stand a pretty good chance to fill the grid with matching symbols. This ends in massive wins, which are paid at the end of the feature. The max payout in the game, apart from the progressive jackpots, is over 3,333 times stake or £200,000 at the most.
The Wild Hatter Design
The game is set on the highly ornamented golden front gates of the mansion from the fairy tale. The gate plays the role of the grid. On it, appear the reels in dark purple-mahogany. Around the grid, you can see a green meadow with mushrooms and a garden behind it.
The symbols include many of the items from the tale. You can land teapots, hats, clocks, knight chess pieces and others. There are highly ornamented card royals and the magnificent Cheshire Cat. The Mad Hatter character is the image of the red-haired Johnny Depp from the Alice in Wonderland movie from 2010.
All images of the symbols on the playing area are detailed, clear, nicely styled and look great. The perfect graphics are accompanied by an adventurous and fun tune and the sounds of the reels and wins. Red Tiger has done a superb work with the design of The Wild Hatter.

The Wild Hatter Features & Bonuses
There are several features in the slot, which are interconnected. One of them is the Respin + Multiplier. Landing a wild triggers at least 1 respin. This also locks 1 symbol type chosen randomly and all instances of it on the reels. The wild itself also becomes a sticky locked symbol and stays in its place for the rest of the feature. The wild also awards a Respin multiplier.
During the respin feature, each wild that land replaces the locked symbols with higher-value ones. It also locks in position. This is the Upgrade feature part of the Respin. If you land more instances of the locked typed, they increase the multiplier by 1. These symbols also lock in place and triggering another respin. If you land another wild, you increase the multiplier and upgrade the locked symbols.
As long as you continue to land of the locked symbol or wild you will win more free respins. You play them with increased multiplier and symbol upgrades. These features combined together to ensure your great winning potential. They can result in a full screen of the locked symbol, which is not rare to happen.
The cherry on the pie in the game is the presence of the 3 progressive jackpots:
- Hourly Jackpot
- Daily Jackpot
- Mega Jackpot
These can trigger randomly when you play for real money and land of the special Jackpot symbols. As usual, the chances to win any of them is relative to the bet size you play with. The higher it is – the better the odds you have!
Although The Wild Hat slot has rather low volatility, you have a chance to win one of 3 progressively increasing jackpots. For this purpose use higher bets to play the rounds with. The key to scoring big wins is activating the Respin + Multiplier feature oftener. If the hatter reveals one of the premiums to be the locked symbol, you can pocket large sums.
