Rabbit in the Hat is a magic and illusion-themed online slot game from world-renowned casino software provider Microgaming. This game includes 5 reels and 9 paylines, as well as wild symbols and a unique bonus feature that offers players 4 different prize types.
Players can trigger any one of 4 Magic Hat bonus features randomly during the game, which will offer them free spins, expanding wild reels or extra cash wins, depending on which Magic Hat is triggered during the base game.
The reel symbols in Rabbit in the Hat include the magician, his assistant, a white rabbit, a knife-throwing target, the magician’s trunk and a locked water tank. There are also playing card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, all of which are vibrantly coloured and chequered with a harlequin pattern.
Game Play and Themes
The theme of Rabbit in the Hat is centred on the world of magic tricks and illusion, and the game is set on a suspenseful dimly lit stage. On the left hand side of the pay table, the magician himself stands dressed in a long cape and a top hat, ready to wave his magic wand at the reels. The magician’s beautiful blonde assistant also makes an appearance during the bonus feature to count down players’ free spins.
The graphics and cutting edge animations of the game are 3-dimensional and detailed, with a cartoonish appeal. The bright colours of the reel symbols and stage backdrop also help to create the illusion of magic and fun.
Magic Hat Bonus Feature
The Magic Hat bonus feature comes into play with 4 different magic hats that appear in the Rabbit in the Hat base game. Each hat appears randomly above the 5th reel, and will move one reel to the left with every spin at online casino. If a wild symbol appears in a reel that has a magic hat on top of it, that hat’s bonus feature will be activated.
The magician’s top hat combined with the ‘Wild’ logo is the game’s wild symbol. This hat symbol substitutes all other symbols in the game to create winning reel combinations.
Wild Reel Hat
The Wild Reel Hat will turn the entire slot reel wild when triggered. The glowing purple and blue wild symbol will expand to cover the entire reel, and expanded wild reels can also duplicate randomly in either or both directions, creating up to 4 game reels that are fully wild.
Free Spins Hat
The Free Spins hat awards players 10 free spins and a 1x multiplier upon being triggered. If this hat is triggered during the Magic Hat bonus feature, the hat will randomly award players 2, 5, 7 or 10 free spins with which to play.
Cash and Mystery Hats
There is also a Cash Hat, which will award a cash prize of a random value when activated, and a Mystery Hat, which could award any of the above bonus types when a wild drops onto the reel above which it is positioned.
