Alice Through The Looking Glass is the sequel to Alice in Wonderland. It features some of the same actors and characters as the earlier movie. There is Mia Wasikowska as Alice, Anne Hathaway as the White Queen and Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter. The movie has grossed over $100 million in its first week, giving a fillip to Alice in Wonderland themed video pokies at online casinos. Forest of Wonders from Playtech is one of the best and it can be played at online casinos like Omni Casino and Mansion Casino.
The symbols on the reels are easily identifiable as the characters from Alice in Wonderland in this bright and cheerful video pokie. They include the Dormouse, the White Rabbit, the Caterpillar, the Cheshire Cat and the Mad Hatter. If you like online pokies with win animations then Forest of Wonders will be a big hit with you. They bring alive the characters as if you are actually seeing the story unfold on the reels. The Caterpillar starts smoking his hookah and the body of the Chesire Cat disappears leaving only the grinning head. The playing card icons are designed like the Card characters from Alice in Wonderland. Alice is strangely missing from this online pokie.
The Dormouse ironically is the wild symbol and it also awards the highest line payments, ending with 5000 coins for a five-of-a-kind win. The White Rabbit is the scatter symbol and when three or more appear anywhere on the reels the free spins bonus round is triggered. You have to select one of the White Rabbit symbols on the reels to reveal the number of free spins awarded. Additional free spins can be won in this round. The Toadstool is the bonus symbol. When three or more of them appear consecutively in an active payline the bonus game on the second screen is triggered. The second screen displays a glade in the forest where there are 12 toadstools. You have to choose three toadstools and will be informed of the bonus credits that you can win. If you are not happy with the bounty then you can discard this choice and choose another three toadstools. You can repeat this process till the final three toadstools are left. You will then have to take the bonus they offer.
Forest of Wonders has 25 selectable paylines. It also includes the Playtech Dollar Ball progressive jackpot. You have to place a separate wager for this and get to play a lotto type game while the reels spin. Five matches will deliver the progressive jackpot.
