The doddering Humpty Dumpty couldn’t manage to stand on a wall but can the famous nursery rhyme character help you make off with a jackpot? That’s the aim in Humpty Dumpty, a 5 reel, 25 payline slot from Push Gaming. It comes with stacked wilds, re-spins and a traditional free spins round where you can collect symbols which can be turned into frozen stacked wilds. Available across all compatible devices, play from between 25p and £100 per spin.
First impressions of Humpty Dumpty are favourable – a medieval scene forms the backdrop to the reels which include olde worlde playing cards from A to 10 alongside a maid, horse, moustachioed soldier and the king and queen. They’re drawn cartoon style and look very impressive. Likewise, the fantastical sounding backing trick which bounces along nicely. No complaints about the sound or visuals. What about the features?
The crossed spoons motif is the game’s wild – it can appear as a stacked symbol and fill the entire reel in which it appears. It replaces everything apart from the Humpty Dumpty and Heart symbols.
First up you have the Falling Wilds Respin feature – whenever a wild symbol lands, you’ll be awarded a re-spin. The reel in which the wild appears will move by exactly 1 position, offering a second chance at creating a winning combination.
Land the fully scattered Humpty Dumpty symbol on the middle reel and you’ll trigger the Free Spins feature and be awarded 6 free spins. That may sound on the meagre side but there is scope to add to your winning potential by collecting heart symbols.
During the feature, the heart symbol can land on any of the middle 3 reels – whenever they do, they will be collected. Once you have collected 3 on the same reel, that reel will turn into a stacked wild and will remain frozen in position for the remainder of the feature. Keep track of how many hearts you’ve collected via the meter above each reel. The Falling Wilds Respin feature is also in play during the free spins.
Humpty Dumpty is charmer of a slot – the design team deserves a pat on the back for creating such a terrific looking and sounding game. The gameplay doesn’t quite hit the same heights as the visuals but there’s still enough on offer in the features department to make you want to try and put poor old Humpty back together again. If you like fairy tale themed slots, there’s plenty to choose from with WMS’ Wizard of Oz Ruby Slippers or Quickspin’s Big Bad Wolf.
