Following a recent deal with Colombian operator. FullReto, to solidify its position in the Latin American market, Pragmatic Play, a flagship slot provider with 80+ HTML 5 titles for mobile and desktop computers based in Silema, Malta, today released The Red Queen, a fairytale-themed slot featuring familiar characters such as the White Rabbit, Kooky Hatter from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and the Red Queen from Lewis Carroll’s widely-known children book, Through The Looking Glass.
This slot follows Pragmatic’s recent popular slots in its award-winning portfolio such as Big Bass Hold & Spinner™ and The Knight King™.
A visual that will take you back to your childhood:
True to its title, the main theme of the game is the Red Queen, who invites players to join her as a psychedelic in Alice’s imaginary world. The game takes place in a magical land, with big purple mushrooms with a golden glow and different butterflies flying around the screen.
The soundtrack completes the atmosphere of the game, with its mystical note.
To win, players must form a combination of 3 or more matching symbols on adjacent reels, beginning from the first reel on the left, on a new, dynamic 5×3 grid. Furthermore, the game is equipped with 243 winning ways and there’s a locked sixth reel that may be unlocked when 2 or more Scatters appear on the grid, increasing the winning ways.
The basic low-value symbols are 10, J, Q, K and A, while the high-value bonus symbols are Kooky Hatter, white rabbit with coffee cup, grinning cat and Red Queen. A combination of six-of-a-kind low-value symbols is worth 0,5x and 1,25x a player’s bet, increasing to 1,5x and 5x for six-of-a-kind high-value symbols.
The game has medium/high volatility, with an RTP of 96.06% and a maximum win of 5000x a player’s bet. However, if the player decides to play other versions of the game, they have lower RTPs of 95.06% and 94.05%.
This slot game can be played on any device.
Wild Symbol – lands on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 and replaces every symbol except the Scatter. Moreover, it may have a multiplier in the Queen Respin feature.
Splitting Symbols – the symbol can be randomly separated into 2 or 4 symbols of the same kind. Every symbol counts as an individual, which significantly increases the winning ways.
Mystery Symbol – this symbol, aka the big question mark, may land in any position. After stopping the reels, each Mystery Symbol present turns into 1, 2 or 4 symbols of the same paying symbol.
Extra Reel – the aforementioned sixth reel is locked in the base game. A combination of 2 or 3 Scatters anywhere unlocks the sixth reel, where the player may hit Scatters, Queen Symbols or blanks on every position.
If the Scatter lands, the Free Spins will be activated and hitting the Queen Symbol will trigger the Queen Respin.
Queen Respin – Bonus Symbols that appeared on a spin that activated the Queen Respin turn into Wilds with random multipliers of 2x, 3x or 4x.
They are locked on the screen while the other symbols respin. Furthermore, Wilds are added to each winning combination and multipliers multiply each other if several Wilds participate in the same win.
Free Spins – a combination of 3 or 4 Scatters, which can show on all reels except the first in the base game, triggers Free Spins and automatically awards the player with at least 4 or 6 Free Spins.
Prior to the beginning of the feature, the player is introduced to a clock with a green and white surface. The green surface is between 12 and 4 if the player activated the feature with 3 Scatters and between 12 and 6 if the player activated it with 4 Scatters.
The clock will then spin and if it stops on a green number, the player will be rewarded with the same number of spins as the number it stops on and then spins once more. However, if the clock stops on a white surface, the free spins will begin.
The extra reel is constantly active and offers regular paying symbols throughout the free spins. The Player also receives an additional horizontal reel on top of the regular reels, which displays 4 soldiers. They can randomly display modifiers on any spin:
- +Ways – guarantees a random distribution of symbols on the reel below;
- +Wild – guarantees that te Multiplier Wild will land on the reel below;
- +1 Spin – rewards 1 or more free spins;
The feature ends, when the maximum number of spins or the maximum win of 5000x is reached.
Commenting on the launch, Irina Cornides, Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, said: “The Red Queen™ is an outlandishly good game. Its enchanting visuals and sounds are matched by engaging mechanics designed to excite and entertain players.
“Two bonus features and wins of up to 5,000x the player’s bet make this a strong addition to Pragmatic Play’s ever-growing Slots portfolio.”
