White Rabbit is a video slot from Big Time Gaming, based loosely around Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. Playable from as little as 10p, White Rabbit boasts a variety of features, including Caterpillar Wilds, Rabbit Hole Free Spins, and BTG’s unique ‘Feature Drop’ mechanism. During the bonus, it’s possible to expand the reels to 12 symbols high – and this is where you can win mega prizes! Learn all about it in our White Rabbit slot review.
Lewis Carroll wrote Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland back in 1865, and the novel has proved hugely successful. It’s been made into films, cartoons, and children’s books, and the tale follows a young girl called Alice, after she falls through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world. Big Time Gaming decided to create a slot all around Alice’s adventures (albeit loosely), and the result is White Rabbit!
White Rabbit is a 5-reel video slot which uses Big Time Gaming’s ‘Megaways’ game mechanic. On each spin, the number of symbols per reel varies, from between 2 and 7. This means, that each spin (assuming all five reels contain 7 symbols) can produce up to 16,807-ways-to-win. To make a win, you simply need to land symbols on adjacent reels from left-to-right – paylines are redundant. On each spin, the number of Megaways is visible at the top of the screen.
White Rabbit can be played from as little as 10p per spin, and as much as £20 – and it’s fully mobile-optimized, meaning it can be played from the majority of mobile devices. As with all BTG slots, there’s an autoplay function (letting you pre-set up to 100 spins to play automatically), and there’s detailed game rules, help, and a volume on/off toggle. White Rabbit has an RTP of 97.24% (without buying the Feature Drop). If you choose to buy the Feature Drop, the RTP varies between 97.24% and 97.77%.
Big Time Gaming clearly wanted to emulate the fantasy theme from Alice in Wonderland, and this is shown through the game’s imagery. The reels are set against a woodland backdrop, with lush green trees, rabbit holes, and giant toadstools. Look to the left of the reels, and you’ll see a caterpillar, and like most of the developer’s slots, the audio and visual effects are outstanding. A soothing, entertaining soundtrack accompanies the game, and big wins are accompanied by BTG’s famed ‘big win’ music.
White Rabbit’s Symbols and Payouts
White Rabbit uses a combination of low and high-value symbols. All of the low-paying ones are represented by playing card values. These include a 9, a 10, a Jack, a Queen, a King, and an Ace. Out of these low-value symbols, the Ace is the highest-paying, awarding 2X your stake for matching a 5-of-a-kind combo. The King, Queen, Jack, 10, and 9, are worth 1.9X, 1.5X, 1.3X, 0.7X, and 0.6X your stake respectively, for landing a 5-of-a-kind combo.
There are four higher-value symbols to look out for. These include a Green, Blue, and Red Gem, and the Red Queen. The Green and Blue Gems pay 2X your stake for matching a 5-of-a-kind combo, while the Red Gem pays 5X. The Red Queen is, by far, the top-paying symbol, awarding 25X your total bet for a 5-of-a-kind combo. She also pays for matching just a 2-of-a-kind combo, too.
There are two types of wild symbol in White Rabbit. The regular wild appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, and substitutes for all symbols apart from the Scatter, Cupcake, and Feature Drop symbols (see below.) There’s also a special Caterpillar Wild, which you can read about below.
The game’s (only) scatter symbol is the White Rabbit. He appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 only, and is the key to triggering the main bonus round, which you can read all about in the following section.
Bonuses and Features
Big Time Gaming have made sure that White Rabbit is packed with exciting features – read on to learn all about them!
Rabbit Hole Free Spins
Landing a purple scatter symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4 will trigger the Rabbit Hole free-spins. You’ll initially be awarded 15 free-spins, which take place on a new reel set. The reels will have a random number of rows, ranging from 5 to 7. There is also a new symbol added to the reels – a Pink Cupcake.
Each time the Cupcake lands it will split into two random symbols, while also increasing the height of that reel by one row. If you manage to increase any of the 5 reels’ height to 12, you’ll transform the reel into a ‘Queen’s Reel’. This adds extra wild and Red Queen symbols, and also awards you a further 1 to 12 spins.
It’s possible to increase all 5 reels to the maximum 12-row format, and this will unlock the maximum ways-to-win, of 248,832.
White Rabbit is Big Time Gaming’s first slot to offer the Feature Drop, and this allows you to buy the main bonus round for a cost of 100X the bet. For example, if you wanted to buy the bonus on a £1/spin stake, it would cost you £100.
The Feature Drop technology also adds special coin symbols to the reels. When these land in view (during the base-game), they discount the price of buying the bonus slightly. When the cost of buying the bonus reaches £0, the feature will begin automatically.
On any spin during the main base-game, the caterpillar on the left-hand-side of the screen can ‘come to life’. When he does, he’ll blow between 1 and 4 extra wilds onto the reels, and each wild will have either a 2X or 3X multiplier attached to it.
The wilds multiply against each other as well, so if you get 2 or more of the wilds, you can hit some very nice-sized wins!
White Rabbit is undoubtedly one of Big Time Gaming’s best releases in history. It’s well-suited to players on all budgets, it can deliver some insanely big wins, and it’s fun-to-play as well; what more could you want from a video slot?
Players with an affinity for a Megaways game on steroids will be enraptured, and we love the fact you can buy the bonus, too. While it’s a little expensive at 100X your stake, the bonuses can and do go for upwards of 2,000X your total stake… and this means there really is some insane win-potential to be found.The graphics look cool, the game’s sound effects fit in perfectly… and all in all, it’s really hard to find any fault with the game.
