Gameplay and Symbols in the Cheshire Cat Slot
Set in a forest, the visual features and soundtrack of Cheshire Cat are excellent. The symbols include the Cheshire Cat (of course), Alice, the March Hare, and the Caterpillar. Other symbols include the standard playing cards J, Q, K and A; cake slices, and potions. The Wild is the Cheshire Cat which substitutes for all other symbols except the Scatter, which is the bonus wheel symbol. The Scatter is the highest valued symbol affording 12.5 times one’s bet for 5 on a payline.
Though the symbols’ values are not as high, the super stack feature makes up for it. This means that on each spin, a symbol is randomly selected to appear in giant stacks in place of the maximum standard of 4. When stacked wilds appear on all reels the pay is 12.5 one’s stake for 5 of the same symbols win. Five Cheshire Cat symbols pay at 1.25x, Alice pays at 1x, while the Caterpillar, potion and slice of cake pays at 30, 20 and 15 coins respectively. This is quite a step down to the minimum bet of 40 coins for each spin. The standard card values pay at 0.25x the stake for 5.
Cheshire Cat Bonus Wheel
Cheshire Cat Bonus Wheel feature entails landing three or more scatters and will give the player 5 free spins, 10 free spins for 4 on the reels, and 20 free spins for landing 5 on the reels. This feature cannot be retriggered but a spin wheel feature is played before the free spins.
The spin a wheel bonus feature presents numerous wild reel configurations to give players on random reels. It is possible to get 4 wild reels in the bonus wheel. This feature is quite profitable.
Every player is assured to win at least 10 times his bet. If a player is not as lucky, his winnings will be topped up. Getting some wilds on the reels in the free spins bonus feature could lead to 500x one’s stake for each spin.
