iSoftBet have returned with their next instalment in the Twisted Tale series, and this time we’re heading down the rabbit hole and into a world of wonder with Queen of Wonderland Megaways.
iSoftBet’s previous Twisted Tale Morgana Megaways was a big hit with its captivating theme and an electrifying bonus, but we must leave the world of Arthurian legend behind for now as we explore new horizons in the perplexing and eccentric world of Wonderland.
iSoftBet certainly have a knack for imagination and it’s proven with their diverse portfolio of games like Euphoria, Greta Goes Wild, Phantasmic Fortunes, and a handful of Megaways Slots titles including the aforementioned triumph that was Morgana Megaways.
Even more Weird, wacky and whimsical escapades await in the Queen of Wonderland, as well as some potentially big wins.
Welcome to Wonderland and the Kingdom of hearts’ is the greeting given to you as you load up the game.
The Evil Queen of Hearts is putting on the facade of gentle affection and kindness yet again, but we all know that a psychotic personality and murderous intent is cloaked behind this manipulative exterior, and she’s undoubtedly keen to hand out irrational death sentences for slight offences yet again.
If you’d had no previous experience of the egotistical and tyrannical Queen then you’d be easily forgiven for thinking that the Kingdom of Hearts is a surreal and ethereal paradise.
The visuals are stunning as the background glows gold amidst a field of painted red roses, with the Kingdom visible in the background.
The music and sound is delicate and graceful too, and the theme altogether has perfectly captured Wonderland. Top marks to iSoftBet for the theme.
Betting options for Queen of Wonderland Megaways are pretty standard as far as a Megaways game goes. The lowest option here is £0.20, with the highest option at £20. As you’d expect, there’s a lot of options in between so there’s generally a perfect option for everyone.
The top symbol in the game is the Queen of Hearts, and the other high paying symbols are the King of Hearts, the Mad Hatter, and the White Rabbit. The lower paying symbols are your typical A, K, Q, J, 10 & 9.
There’s a Wild symbol too which substitutes for all but the Bonus of Cash Respin symbols.
Queen of Wonerland Megaways is played with up to 117,649 ways to win, which is made possible when all of the reels display 7 symbols each. To actually form a win, you’ll need 3 or more matching symbols from left to right on adjacent reels, starting from the left-most reel.
Megaways fanatics will know that even the base game for Megaways can result in some seriously nice wins. Megaways will inevitably vary per spin, but a large number of Megaways paired with some good symbols can make for a profitable endeavour.
Further to this, Queen of Wonderland Megaways also features cascading reels. When a win is formed, the winning symbols will disappear, and new symbols will fall in via a cascade to fill the empty spaces.
This means that multiple wins are possible on a single spin, potentially causing a chain reaction of different winning combinations.
On any spin, a random number of Cheshire Cat mystery symbols may land in view. All of these will turn into the same symbol. It’s a familiar feature, it’s certainly made an appearance in a fair few games.
These aren’t guaranteed to result in wins, so get ready for that familiar feeling of annoyance when it doesn’t.
The Max Megaways modifier may trigger randomly on any spin, which will guarantee you one go at 117,649 ways to win. This is a great feature to be included, and coupled with the cascading reels feature you can definitely see some big hits materialise here.
The red heart symbols on the reels are the Queen of Hearts Respin triggers. Landing 5 or more of these will trigger this feature.
Each heart will hold a value that is a multiplier of your current bet, and the goal is to land as many as you can with the 3 spins that you are given to do so.
Landing another symbol will reset the spins to 3, and the feature will end when no more spaces are free, or you run out of lives. Values will be added up at the end to award a total prize.
The interesting thing about this feature is that it can be triggered within Free Spins, and whatever multiplier you accrue will carry into the Queen of Hearts Respins creating some insane potential.
3 bonus symbols will trigger 10 Free Spins, with any additional scatters awarding an extra 5 up to a maximum of 25 spins. This mode is a little more traditional in the way that it’s simply a progressive multiplier round.
Every cascade will cause the multiplier to increase by +1. This is pretty much the bread and butter of most Megaways bonuses, and huge wins are possible here.
Big multipliers, cascading reels and Mystery Symbols can all be a formula for success, potentially generating some massive returns.
Another nice feature to have is the Royal Guarantee, which will activate if the total from all of your Free Spins is less than 10x. This will award an additional 5 spins, but it can only happen once.
This slot is a Bonus Buy Slot, providing you don’t live in the UK. This will cost 100x your total bet. This will guarantee you a 50/50 chance of either landing the Queen of Hearts Respins, or the Queen of Hearts Free Spins.
Your trip to Wonderland can be just as surreal as Alice’s was with a multitude of different features to keep the enchantment going. None of these features are particularly original, with all of them seen elsewhere in previous games, but there’s nothing inherently wrong with that.
Some Megaways give you Mystery Symbols and Free Spins, but here you have Cascading Reels, Max Megaways, Queen of Hearts Respins, Queen of Hearts Free Spins, Mystery Symbols, and Royal Guarantee which are packed together to make for an list of features that could be deemed as truly generous from iSoftBet.
The potential is definitely exciting too, especially considering that the Queen of Hearts Respins can be triggered within Free Spins, where your multiplier will be taken into account for some potentially unbelievable wins.
This new slot will be available to play on selected Online Casinos on the 3rd of December 2020
