Loosely based on Lewis Carroll’s Alice stories, White Rabbit is a beautifully designed slot from Big Time Gaming. Trigger the free spins bonus round and the reels can expand to offer 248,832 MegaWays! Also on offer are added wilds and wild multipliers that can treble payouts. Play from between 10p and £20 per spin.

The design in White Rabbit has a slightly surreal feel – set against a woodland backdrop filled with trees and giant toadstools, you’ll see many of Lewis Carroll’s most famous creations spinning around the reels. They include the Mad Hatter, Dodo, Tweedledum and Tweedledee and the Cheshire Cat. Most rewarding is the Red Queen who gives you 25 times your stake for 5 on a payline.

They’re joined by a standard wild which can land on reels 2, 3, 4 or 5. Watching over proceedings is a snoozing caterpillar – he can stir into life at random and add 4 bonus wilds to the reels. These bonus wilds come with multipliers too. If they form part of a winning combination, they can boost the payout by up to 3x.

The March Hare is the scatter – when this hits on reels 2, 3 and 4 on the same spin, you’ll trigger the Free Games feature and be awarded 15 free spins. These are played out on a new set of reels. Keep a special eye out for the Cupcake symbol – whenever it lands, it is replaced by 2 new symbols and the number of symbols on that reel increases by 1. This is known as the Extending Reels feature.

Once a reel reaches its maximum height of 12 high, you’ll retrigger the feature and get between 3 and 12 free spins. You can retrigger up to 5 times giving you a potential 75 free spins in total. More wilds and Red Queen symbols are added once a reel reaches its maximum height. Extended reels means more ways to win – in theory, there are over 248,000 combinations if you fill all the reels to their potential.

If you don’t want to hang around and wait to trigger the feature, you can buy it. You can see the precise amount in the meter at the bottom of the reels – it’s basically 100 times your total stake.

White Rabbit isn’t the first slot that’s taken inspiration from Lewis Carroll’s surreal stories. It all comes together pretty well. The design is excellent and the MegaWays game engine delivers a steady stream of action. We found the extras hard to come by but did okay when we did land them.

The theme won’t be to everyone’s liking but if you do enjoy this type of fantastical fairy story then White Rabbit is worth a closer look. I recommend you also try WMS’ The Cheshire Cat and Ash Gaming’s Adventures Beyond Wonderland.
