Adventures Beyond Wonderland is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win jackpot slot (initially) from Ash Gaming. Playable on all devices from 30p to £150 per spin, the game has an Alice in Wonderland theme and comes with 3 bonus features as well as a progressive jackpot.
Visually, Adventures Beyond Wonderland has a fairy tale feel to it which is all about Alice – she is the wild symbol by the way and substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. Set in an enchanted forest, symbols on the reels include playing cards (A, K, Q, and J), teapots, top hats, pocket watches, crowns and potion bottles. The crown is the most valuable symbol giving you 350 times your line stake for 7 on a payline.
In the base game, Alice can randomly fall from the trees above the reels – this will trigger the Falling Alice feature. She only falls on the 3 middle reels and pop Bonus Bubbles (more below) she falls through – these will reward you with cash prizes. Furthermore, all symbols that Alice falls down on are replaced with Alice wilds.
Then you have the Caterpillar Bonus Bubbles feature – you will see a Caterpillar to the right of the reels blowing a Bonus Bubble on any spin and they occupy the spaces above reels 2, 3 and 4. When blow, a Bonus Bubble moves to the space above reel 4 – with each spin, all Bonus Bubble move 1 reel to the reel. Inside the Bonus Bubbles, there are 1 of 4 bonuses which are awarded. These are as follows:
- A win multiplier up to 10x
- A cash prize
- The progressive jackpot (Jackpot Castle inside the bubble)
- The Drink Me Potion which makes Alice grow and create an extra 1 or 2 reels filled with wilds. These will give you up to 7 reels which unlocks 2,187 ways to win!
The main attraction is the Cheshire Cat Free Games feature which is played when the Free Games scatter symbol lands simultaneously on reels 1, 3 and 5 in the base game. The Cheshire Cat then rewards you with a random number of free spins which are played on up to 7 reels with 2,187 ways to win. I’ve had up to 12 free spins before.
The feature is played with horizontal reels with Cheshire Cat Wilds replacing the regular Alice wilds. These Cheshire Cat Wilds don’t spin in on the reels as they are randomly appear on any free spin. They will then increase or decrease in size randomly. When it increases in size, it does so horizontally pushing the other symbols aside – this means a Cheshire Cat Wild that is 2 symbols wide sits on a reel with 4 other symbols. The Cheshire Cat Wild can expand to a maximum of 3 symbols wide resulting in a total of 7 symbols per reel.
As you can see, Adventures Beyond Wonderland has a lot going on – I really like The Drink Me Potion which you can get from the Caterpillar Bonus Bubbles feature as you get up to 2 extra wilds reels with 2,187 ways to win. The biggest wins will almost certainly come from the Cheshire Cat Free Games where you can benefit from plenty of Cheshire Cat Wilds. Variance wise, it’s in the middle – entertainment wise, it’s very good. I also recommend you take a look at Adventures in Wonderland which is also powered by Ash Gaming.
