ABOUT

The Red Queen is a slot inspired by the popular children’s novel Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carrol. The game is chock full of surprises with numerous features, including Wild with multipliers and the combination of three free spin flavors, turning gameplay into a chaotic clown fest. On top of that, the massive jackpot of 5,000x the bet awaits those brave enough to defeat the Red Queen.

Betting Options and Bonus Features

Set in a world where up is down and food is greed, The Red Queen presents itself with a background of extraordinary land made of fluorescent giant pink mushrooms and overgrown vines. These magical plants creep across the scene, adding a touch of uncertainty and ominousness to the experience. Players will soon run across the characters, from the Grinning Schizo Cat to the Clinically Insane Tailor, who are always in a contest to see who can out-crazy whom. However, none can overrule the Red Queen herself, whose value is at 5x the bet for five of a kind.

Playable on a 5x3 configuration (which can extend to 6x3), The Red Queen replaces the pay lines with ways mechanic where three adjacent symbols are enough to earn a monetary prize. The pay ways system will be handy as the game is highly volatile and has just enough RTP (96.06%) to help with winning. Despite these minor setbacks, The Red Queen provides plenty of opportunities, mainly in its many features and enticing bonus round, to get to the jackpot of 5,000x the stake.

The core entertainment value of The Red Queen lies in its extended reel and the bonus round. To expand the grid by one more reel, players need to collect 2 to 3 Scatters. When the reel is active in the base game, it contains only Red Queen and Scatter symbols. Red Queen symbols activate the Queen Respin feature, while Scatters unlock the Free Spin bonus round.

When the Queen Respin feature triggers, all Scatters in view turn into Wilds with multipliers ranging from 2x to 4x. They participate in all winning combinations while remaining sticky for the entire duration of the event. Should more than one Wild appear in a win, their values multiply with each other.

Scatters land exclusively on reels 2, 3, 4, and 6. Players can land 3 or 4 to trigger the Free Spin bonus round. The game awards free spins based on a clock mechanic. When players land 3 Scatters, the area from 12 to 4 on the clock turns green, while 4 Scatters turns the area from 12 to 6 green. The number of free spins players receive depends on where the clock hand lands on the green section. Should the hand land on a green zone, it will spin again, giving more free spins.

During the event, all reels are active, and the game fills them with regular paying symbols. Four Card Soldiers appear on top; each may randomly reveal a surprise bonus:

  • +Ways: Guarantees a split symbol land on the reel below
  • +Wild: Guarantees a Wild symbol with multiplier values of 2x, 3x, or 5x land below
  • +1 Spin: Awards one Free Spin

Roshtein’s Take

Funny to look at and massively entertaining is how I would describe The Red Queen slot. My favorite part of the game is the stackable Free Spin collection feature, a niche mechanic that helps satisfy my Free Spin addiction. Combined with the unique ways system akin to Megaways and multiplicative sticky multipliers, the game is an impressive take. I’ve had tons of fun playing this game.
