Court of Hearts Review
Alice in Wonderland is a story that has captured many hearts. Its wide cast of interesting and sometimes bizarre characters do their job magnificently.
It honestly feels like you have dropped into a different world. Now, Play’n GO’s Court of Hearts gives us an opportunity to see this new world up close.
Will it succeed in looking just as impressive up close and personal?
- High volatility with 8,500x jackpot
- Gorgeous background image and animations

Few characters have become as notable in wider culture as the queen of hearts. A statuesque and harsh woman, who gave our death sentences like candy on Halloween.
Not the perfect monarch, but she is still a queen. If you choose to explore her court, you will find many fun bonuses waiting for you.
Three rabbit hole bonuses, the rabbit reward special feature and free spins with an uncapped multiplier. All essential tools if you hope to beat the slot’s high variance and win its 8500x jackpot.
Theme, Graphics and Sounds
When we first saw the background image, we immediately fell in love with this online slot. It perfectly captures how utterly bizarre the politics of Alice in Wonderland’s kingdoms has to be.
Nobles of various species sit in oversized chairs surrounded by giant mushrooms and overgrown vegetation.
They shift in their seats and mumble to each other as the miniature king holds courts from above the reels. Hats off to Play’n GO, because this release looks incredible.
You play Court of Hearts on a five-reel, three-row board with ten fixed paylines. That means individual paylines cannot be toggled on or off to adjust your total bet.
Find three or more matching symbols next to one another to form a winning combination.
All wins must follow an active payline and start with the leftmost reel. If all of these conditions are met, you will receive the appropriate reward.
Cascading reels are in effect in this slot. Winning icons are removed from the board, while existing symbols fall down to take their place.
At the same time, brand new icons will appear from the top of the board. This allows players to win multiple times at the cost of a single spin.
Every spin has a chance of activating one of three rabbit hole bonuses. These special features can trigger during both normal gameplay and free spins.
- The Cheshire Cat creates a full reel Wild, which moves positions whenever the reels cascade
- The Caterpillar creates between three to seven Wilds placed in random positions
- The Dormouse grants a growing Mega Wild that can reach a size of 4×3
Every spin also has a chance to trigger the rabbit reward. The bonus makes the white rabbit appear to add two Scatters to the playing field.
Court of Hearts Free Spins
Find three scatters anywhere on the board to win nine free spins and a 5x cash prize. Every additional scatter will award an additional 5x payout.
Scatters can appear during free spins, but do not grant cash prizes. Instead, every additional Scatters awards one more free spin.
Every time you win during free spins, the win multiplier increases by one. There is no limit on how high the multiplier can climb. During free spins, the queen icon becomes Wild.
