Court of Hearts is the sequel of Play’n GO to the successful Rabbit Hole Riches slot. And, like Rabbit Hole Riches, the famously surreal story of Alice in Wonderland takes center stage.
The famous fairy tale, where the girl Alice falls down a rabbit hole and experiences the most wonderful events, was written in 1865 by the British writer Lewis Carroll. With colorful characters such as the Mad Hatter, the Queen of Hearts, the White Rabbit and the Cheshire Cat, the story about Alice in Wonderland is very suitable for an online slot like Court of Hearts.
Just think of The Queen of Wonderland Megaways, White Rabbit Megaways, Alice and the Mad Tea Party and much, much more. In the Court of Hearts slot, all well-known figures also pass by and the slot also has many mystery features, a high variance and a maximum win of 8,500 x the total bet.

It's also a slot that, despite its cutesy theme, can be brutal. As the Queen of Hearts says: “Off with their heads!”. This slot can reward you with big payouts, but just as hard, two or three free spins bonus rounds in a row can give you absolutely nothing. And it's not like they fall often.
Court of Hearts has 10 fixed paylines, which are spread over 5 reels with 3 rows of symbols. You play from 0.10 euros per spin and that goes up to 100 euros per spin. If you make a winning combination, these symbols disappear and new ones appear in their place. This so-called “Avalanche” mechanism creates chain reactions, in which you can win multiple winning combinations in one spin.
The variance of Court of Hearts is clearly high and the theoretical payout percentage defaults to 96.27%. High symbols consist of the well-known characters from the fairy tale and are worth between 4x and 20x the total bet, with a 5-of-a-kind.
The gold brooch is wild and substitutes for all symbols except the two scatters, the mirrors and the clocks. There are also four card symbols (hearts, spades, diamonds and clubs): these are the low symbols.
A slot about Alice in Wonderland naturally also includes a lot of mystery features. As soon as the green glowing mirror appears, you win the Rabbit Hole Bonus, which comes from a mystery wild feature:
- When the hookah smoking Caterpillar appears, you get four to seven extra wilds.
- The Cheshire Cat becomes an expanding wild that moves across the screen. This feature is especially powerful during the free spins, because every winning spin gives a respin.
- The little Doormouse can deliver the greatest deeds. He turns into a mega wild, which can get bigger and bigger.
There is also a kind of extra feature where you get 2 scatters as a gift as soon as the rabbit appears. This immediately increases the chance of activating the bonus round.
Three or more scatters (the clocks) will give you 9 free spins. During the free spins, a number of very interesting boosters are active:
- Extra wilds in the form of the queen.
- Extra free spins: every scatter is good for +1 free spin.
- Extra multipliers: every winning combination increases the multiplier by +1.
The multipliers can grow very fast: they do not reset and every winning combination (even if you have several per spin) results in a raise. If you have a winning combination in which a prize falls on all 10 paylines (for example, due to the Megawild feature), the multiplier is increased by +10. And the multiplier never resets.
You can also win the Rabbit Hole Bonus, in Court of Hearts, during the free spins and that is good news, especially if it falls when you have built up a nice multiplier.
We find Court of Hearts a very entertaining slot, which is treacherous up to and including.
Because of all the features and the Avalanche mechanism you have the feeling that you are playing for your money for a long time, until you find out that you have already made three big deposits and have easily scored two free spins bonus rounds, which are also quite big. disappointed.

However, it does not take away that you can also win big money and that the slot is extremely entertaining.
