The title of this Pragmatic Play-backed release from Wild Streak Gaming immediately reminded us of the lyrics from the Modern Talking hit Atlantis Is Calling (SOS For Love), but there’s nothing “little” or cute about the “Queenie” in it. She’s a stern-looking adult woman staring right at you on the left side (and as the top symbol on the reels), and you only have Wilds to help you in the somewhat boring grind of the base game.
The Wilds are collected by the partially visible feature wheel, and collecting Wilds eventually gives you a spin on the wheel at random times. This is how the bonus round is triggered, which comes with a wheel spin for every wild you land, and the wheel can also trigger a jackpot picker game with prizes up to 4,000 times your bet. Some other useful extras can also come from this wheel, but we’re not sure if the somewhat dated visual presentation does this Alice in Wonderland release any favors.
Queenie Slot Features
The premium symbols pay out between 2x and 10x your bet for 5-wins, and the big red heart wild jumps in for all payout symbols to help complete winning combinations. However, the wild has no value of its own and can only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4.
Whenever you land a wild symbol in the base game, there is always a chance that it will trigger the feature wheel bonus. The wheel is partially visible behind the reels, and when triggered, it becomes visible to award one of the following extras:
- A cash prize between 8 and 200 times your bet.
- A random multiplier between x2 and x100, which increases your total win.
- 2 to 5 additional Wilds are randomly added to the reels.
- The Jackpot Pick Me Bonus Game.
- The bonus round with up to 50 free spins.
The jackpot bonus game comes with 12 “Pick Me” cards , and each card reveals 1 of 4 possible jackpots . You are guaranteed to win one of them, and combining 3 jackpots by picking cards is how you do it. The Mini, Minor, Major and Grand jackpots pay out 20x, 50x, 200x and 4,000x your bet respectively, and if you pick the Boost card, you’ll get a random additional prize of 5x to 800x in addition to your jackpot win.
You can win 10, 15, 20 or 50 free spins from the feature wheel, and the bonus round runs almost like the base game. The big difference is that heart wilds always trigger a feature wheel spin. This way you can win extra spins that extend the feature, or any of the extras mentioned above.
Players outside the UK and all eligible can buy the bonus round for 100 times the total bet, and this gives you a feature wheel spin where you are guaranteed to land in one of the free spins segments. The bonus round is triggered on average every 262 spins.
The 200 Spins Queenie Slot Experience
You’ll see some smaller base game payouts before we buy the bonus round at 1:20 in the 8:48 minute highlights video. As you probably understand from the length of our video, we landed extra spins via the feature wheel and started with 20 free spins. We have a lot of wheel spins in total, and you can see it all by clicking the “Play” button below.
The problem with the Pragmatic Play engine is the somewhat slow spin pace, which is only emphasized by the circular spin bar visuals. Some sort of turbo option would have been a great idea for a release like this (and all future releases really), since the base game is mostly a boring grind anyway. All the fun is contained in the feature wheel, and it can be frustrating when you collect wild heart after wild heart with nothing to show for it.
The Alice in Wonderland theme is designed a bit differently than we’ve seen before, focusing on the unwavering mysterious left side of the Queen of Hearts that stares at you throughout the session. However, any theme would have worked for this concept, and the bonus round is admittedly fun if you trigger a lot of feature wheel spins. The wheel offers pretty decent rewards overall, and the 4,200x potential seems achievable, as 2,430x can be landed on a single spin.
