Rabbit in the Hat Slot Game
Rabbit in the Hat is a Microgaming powered slot and features their typical high quality of artwork and game design. You’ll see a darkened stage with a curtain and purple lighting, framing the reel as the magician performs his act. The slot is partly dominated by the presence of the magician himself, poised on the right of the reels and constantly animated. This is a great touch, as he seems to direct the game and you’re always waiting for the fantastic Magic Hats feature. Add to that an ambient soundtrack of audience sounds and magical music and you have a feeling of actually being at a magic show!
Rabbit in the Hat has a slightly unusual set up with five reels and nine pay lines, giving a minimum bet of £0.09 and maximum of £18. The nine lines will make perfect sense when you play, as there are buttons down the reel sides to help you identify them. There are also tons of bonus features, built around the quirky magic hats. In the base game, the highest symbol is the wild hat, followed by our mysterious magician and then his glamorous assistant, straight out of a classic stage show. After them we have the cheeky rabbit and a range of magical props, from a locked water tank to various card values.
The magic hats are where it’s at! Four different hats can appear along the top of the fifth reel during the base game. Because they have bunnies hiding inside (the ears are a dead giveaway!), the hats hop to the left after each spin, so note that changing your stake will clear this progress. Ideally, you want a Wild to land on a reel underneath a hat, triggering the hat’s special prize, a gateway to bonus features. The Free Spins Hat triggers 10 free spins. The Wild Reel Hat is probably the best, as it turns the reel it’s on (and sometimes reels to each side!) wild, for extra wins. The hat can cover up to 4 reels, so it’s really worth grabbing to boost your wins.
The Cash Hat simply gives you cash, which is a randomised amount and a nice, quick reward. Finally, the Mystery Hat gives you one of the other benefits at random, keeping the element of surprise and magic in the game. There’s one other factor to these bonuses, in that the spins awarded by the Free Spins Hat start with another hat above each reel, which can retrigger the spin! All this comes with a possible maximum win of 1,000 times your bet.
Watch out for those Wilds as they provide big wins, substitute for others as normal and are the key to triggering the bonus round. You’ll love chasing the magic hats as they bounce from reel to reel. The amount of variety in the bonus rounds and the way they occur, makes this a very exciting slot where no two plays are exactly the same.
