Clumsy old Humpty was one egg that couldn’t stay on the wall, but how useful is this classic character in bagging you big wins? Coming with a range of feature including stacked wilds, re-spins and a traditional free spins round, Humpty Dumpty slot has it all, including a feature that turned collected symbols into stacked wilds.
Presented over a 5 x 3 classic setup to match the tale, this 25 payline slot gives you a range of ways to fill your pockets. Generally it looks good, set in a medieval world that one might expect, Humpty Dumpty is drawn in a cartoon style and really does look very nice. The soundtrack is also pretty good, nothing you’d listen to for pleasure but works well with the game.
The symbols in the game
Lower value symbols are made up of olde worlde playing cards, ranging from Ace to 10, higher value symbols include a maid, ahorse, a moustachioed soldier and the King and Queen.
The game’s wild comes in the form of a crossed spoons motif and can appear as a stacked symbol, filling the entire reel in which it appears. The wild will substitute all other symbols to makes wins, except the Humpty Dumpty and Heart symbols.
Features galore make for a grand game
The Falling Wilds Respin feature is a nice little touch, whenever a wild symbol appears on the reels you’ll be awarded a re-spin. The reel in which the wild appears will move by just one position giving you a second chance to make a winning line.
If you get the fully scattered Humpty Dumpty symbol on the centre reel the Free Spins feature will be triggered, bringing with it six free spins for you. Although it sounds a little stingy, it has the potential to increase winnings by collecting the heart symbols as you go.
This heart symbol can land on any of the middle three reels during the free spins feature. Collect three on the same reel and it’ll turn into a stacked wild, remaining frozen in position for the remainder of the feature. Meters above each reel can help you keep track of how many you’re collecting. The Falling Wilds Respin feature is also active during free spins.
There’s something quite nice about this Humpty Dumpty slot, but it’s actually quite difficult to put your finger on what exactly. Yes, the features are good, the graphics and soundtrack decent enough, in fact no, this is what it is! The design and sounds actually are on another level. This can feel misplaced, but for us it shows the design team’s skills. Good slot, play it.
