Rabbit in the Hat slot from Microgaming

Rabbit in the Hat slot from Microgaming
In 2015 Microgaming added Rabbit in the Hat slot machine to their portfolio, which magically turned out to be a huge success. With its crisp animations, light-hearted humour, joyous vibe, and cheerful music, it’s well-deserved. Let’s not forget to mention the win potential, which is probably the main reason why this slot is still immensely popular among gamblers all over the world. We advise you to try the Thunderstruck Wild Lightning slot by Microgaming for free.

The potential prizes on top of the reels are not an original idea, but they are very stylish executed and still attractive to the gambling audience. Every single spin puts you at the edge of your seat, hoping for a Wild to drop below the desired prize and activate it. The ploy in this machine is the trickery hats jumping from reel to reel, offering instant cash profits, Wild Reels, and up to 50 Free Spins. All that has to happen is a Wild landing on the same reel. Don’t be fooled by the low amount of pay lines (9), but keep focusing on the potential max win of 225 000 CAD (calculated as 5000x the total bet). Sounds like a pretty magical number. With its Medium Volatility and above industry standard RTP of 96.61%, Rabbit in the Hat slot machine is a magnificent game, which might bring a little touch of magic to your life.

Personal testers’ opinion

  • We love these potential prizes hovering above the reels. But of course, the feature is stolen from the EggOmatic slot (NetEnt - 2013), which in our opinion, was an ‘eggcellent’ game. We cannot call Microgaming production Rabbit in the hat a clone from NetEnt game, as both have different pay lines: here 9, while in the competitor’s creation - 20 pay lines. Also different are the bet size ranges: here 45 CAD, while in the competitor’s creation - 200 CAD. Therefore we can conclude: only the Wild function - above the reels - the way it activates, plays, and pays is the "slot lifted" part.
  • Despite the huge slot capacity and the good paytable, big wins are rare here. Perhaps because of the small number of way wins and the super low hit probability - only 20% of the spins will carry some payout (small or big). Our test team reached a win of 719x the total bet, but that still couldn’t be considered a huge win because of the minimum stake with which was obtained (we doubt if that would’ve been possible if we played with max bet). Our testers realized an average win of only 35x the total bet in Free Spins mode, plus they didn’t come too often either. Statistically, the bonus round should be triggered after around 143 spins.
  • The bonus hunters should definitely let this one pass them by - as the game is not particularly good in preserving the bankroll, and the wagering index here is very low: 3.87 (out of 10).
  • All things considered, we are still captivated by this Microgaming slot and will try our luck time and time again. Highly recommended to play with real credits after establishing that the slot is in a hot mood.

  • Rabbit in the Hat slot wild hat
    Wild Top Hat - is paid super generously (for 5OAK - 555x the total bet) and replaces all, yes, all symbols. Triggers special features when dropping exactly on the reel below one of the Magic Hats.
  • Magic Hats feature - Over the grid, Magic Hats mysteriously appear out of thin air and start bouncing from right to left, carrying one of the following 4 prizes:
    -Up to 50 Free Spins
    -Wild Reels
    -Instant Cash
    -The 4th Hat contains a mystery prize, which is always nice.

Whenever a Wild drops straight beneath 1 Magic Hat, the prize it contains will be awarded. Multiple Hats can award prizes in one spin.

  • Free Spins - Initially, 10 Free Spins will be activated, as a result of the Magic Hat bouncing above the reels containing this feature, is emptied by a Wild, dropped right below. At the start, 5 Magic Hats are already lined up on top of each reel, and after every spin, the leftmost hat disappears, another hat magically emerges above the rightmost reel and starts also hopping reel by reel to the left. Meanwhile, all you have to do is cross your fingers for as many Wilds as possible to land on the grid.
    In this mode, another Magic Hat containing Free Spins can hop by again and prolong the feature (i.e. re-triggers is possible).
