Exploring themes and all aspects of the angle of attack are one of Play’n GO’s strong suits. And it’s not the game’s producer’s first take on Lewis Carroll’s world of Wonderland. And as the title, Court of Hearts video slot gives away; it’s all about the Queen of hearts and her closest entourage. Moreover, it’s not only the theme that feels like something we have seen before, where the game grid gets delivered on a classic 5-reels, 3-rows on 10-paylines. Even more so on the rest of the base mechanics. Like the 8,500x your bet as a max win and high volatility. But also the market depending and operator adjustable return to player or RTP that maxes out at 96.27%. Also in repetition, but in a better way, is the graphical deliverance, which is superb in true Play’n GO fashion.
You wouldn’t naturally expect the 5-reel and 3-row Court of Hearts video slot from Play’n GO to get delivered on cascading mechanics. Yet, that’s the case, which also brings that extra you want from a new title. Moreover, this game also includes, apart from the free spins, 3 different additional attributes, all triggered via the rabbit hole symbol. First is the “Cheshire Cat”, an expanding wild that endures as long as a new winning combo displays. Second is the “Caterpillar”, a 3 to 7 wild adding feature. Lastly is the “Dormouse”, a growing wild symbol that can cover up to 4×3 tile positions. That takes us to the main feature, free spins.
The 9 free spins get awarded after 3 scatters land on the game grid, which guarantees a 5x multiplier on every free spin. Although, what makes this free spins feature stick out is the included “rabbit reward”. In essence, the feature may or may not distribute 2 additional scatter before every free spin. And why is this important? Well, every more scatter gives a 1+ multiplier as well as 1+ free spin. Also, during the free spins, the highest paying symbol, Queen of hearts, becomes wild. All in all, a video slot best enjoyed with the included 4 different extras, free spins, multiplier, and, of course, the wilds.
