An Alice in Wonderland Themed Slot Featuring an Expanded, Wild Infused Free Spins Feature
The Cheshire Cat is an iconic character in the ‘Alice in Wonderland’ stories. Its distinctive and mischievous grins are so famous that even today the saying ‘grinning like a Cheshire Cat’ is a common one. Also on the reels of this WMS designed slot are Alice herself, the blue caterpillar and the white rabbit. With a slice of cake and a green potion too, much of the Alice story is covered in this game. Mystery symbols and bonus wheels only make for a more interesting tale.
This classical story themed slot is easy on the eye and fun throughout, with the following range of features:

To enter the bonus feature you’ll need to land three or more of the colourful bonus wheel symbols anywhere across the five reels. The minimum 3 bonus scatters award you 5 free spins, while 4 bonus scatters gives you 10 free spins and an immediate award of 10x your total bet. The maximum 5 scatters award you with 20 free spins and a boost of 50x your total bet.
Before your first spin, you’ll see a bonus wheel fill the screen, with two concentric rings. The inner ring of the two tells you how many ‘arrays’ will be in play throughout the feature – an ‘array’ being a whole set of reels. You can enjoy a maximum of 4 arrays, meaning four reel-sets will fill the screen and 160 winning chances.
The outer ring of the two displays a series of stacked wild configurations. Some will feature just a single stacked wild, while others will feature two, three or even four stacked wilds. This wild set up will appear on every array for every spin in the feature, ensuring some amazing wins.
If you’re looking for the perfect feature, you’ll win 20 free spins by activating with 5 scatters with an instant win of 50x your total bet, the maximum 4 arrays and stacked wilds filling reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 on every spin of every array. Land this, and you’ll be rich!
The Cheshire Cat is a five-reel slot with a set number of 40 win-lines which pays from left to right. Before every spin, one ‘mystery symbol’ is chosen which will fill more spots on the reels than any other, making wins with this symbol more likely (the mystery symbol can be all apart from the wild and the bonus symbol). You’ll be hoping therefore that the mystery symbol is a high paying one!
On the subject of high paying symbols, your biggest win comes with the wild, which shows the title of the slot. Hit this symbol five times in a row and you’ll win 3,000 coins, while it will also substitute for any other symbol apart from the scatter.
An image of the Cheshire Cat itself is next on the pay table (300 coins), while Alice, the blue caterpillar and the white rabbit come next. The pay table is completed by the potion, the cake and the playing card symbols A, K, Q and J.
The backdrop to The Cheshire Cat is an English countryside scene, much like the one that Alice would have run through before falling down the rabbit hole and finding Wonderland. The sky-blue reels nicely expand when you hit spin, giving the game a slick, professional feel. Each of the symbols is nicely designed and bring the story to life, especially when you win the wild and the Cheshire Cat’s eyes light up. A gentle theme tune plays throughout, perfect for a storybook slot.
The Cheshire Cat is a fun and engaging slot from WMS. With 40 win-lines and the mystery symbol in the base, you’ll find more winning opportunities than usual and don’t be surprised to see these across many of the win lines. It’s the free spins feature that makes the slot however. With the opportunity of up four sets of reels, with wilds everywhere, every spin could (and most likely will) be a big winner. This is a feature not to miss, making The Cheshire Cat a must play slot.
