Based on the classic nursery rhyme, Humpty Dumpty Wild Riches is a 5 reel, 30 payline slot from 2×2 Gaming. It comes with wilds that can expand and bring a 6th reel into play as well as a pair of free spins round that offer 2x multipliers and freezing wilds.

As you’d expect given the theme, the design here has a cartoon feel – set against a castle backdrop, you’ll see lower value playing cards alongside toadstools, pouches full of gold coins, a castle, a white horse and a soldier. Best of all is the knight on horseback.

Humpty himself is the wild – he can land fully stacked on the middle reel. When he does, he’ll trigger the Humpty Dumpty Wild feature. Humpty explodes and his body parts spread onto an adjoining reel and turn that wild too. The game engine expands from 5 to 6 reels too. Random wilds can also land on parts of reels 2 and 5. A payout is then made with the extra wilds in place.

Look out too for the bonus symbol. Land 3 of them on the same spin and you’ll trigger the bonus round. You’ll then be given the pick of 2 free spins features:

Freezing Wild Free Spins feature – 8 free spins are awarded here on a 6 reel machine. Every time a wild lands on reels 3 or 4, it is locked in place for the rest of the feature. You’ll notice mini Humpty and Dumpty symbols sit opposite each other, 8 spaces apart above the reels. Every time a scatter lands on reels 2 or 5, the symbols move 1 step closer to each other. When they reach the same spot, a 2x multiplier is awarded which remains in play for any free spins you have left. Land scatters on the same free spin and 2 extra free spins are added to your total.

Humpty Dumpty Free Spins feature – here you’ll get 10 free spins on a 5 reel machine. Humpty and Dumpty are again above the reels, this time 10 steps apart. Once again, landing the scatter moves them 1 step closer and when they hit the 2x multiplier goes live. 2 scatters also add 2 more free spins. The Humpty Dumpty Wild feature is also in play during this round to gives you 6 reels and random wilds.

We’re not really fans of the nursery rhyme theme – however, Humpty Dumpty Wild Riches is perfectly solid if you do like it though. The imagery is in the middle of the pack range, neither stunning nor terrible. The features aren’t bad either, offering a nice variety. If you fancy trying to put poor old Humpty back together again this is a pretty good place to start. If you like the theme, NetEnt’s Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood is recommended.
