The old lines go ‘abra cadabra! Alakazam! Alakazoo!’ and then lots of magic happens. That’s pretty much the concept behind Rabbit in the Hat by Microgaming. The concept itself is nothing new. You’re probably familiar with the setting: the stage is prepared, the magician calmly seats himself to the right of the gameplay area, the curtains are drawn and the rest is history. Magic or the lack of it is entirely at your disposal.
What is Rabbit in the Hat Microgaming?
Basically put, Rabbit in the Hat is a magician-themed video slot, with 9 pay lines, 5 reels and operates on top of Microgaming’s software platform. Most of the in-game features should be familiar with regular players, ranging from special elements to advanced options what will offer prize spins and other various bonuses.
Features & Symbols
The most basic in-game symbols you’ll see are a slot machine, an illusionist and his assistant, a chest, rabbit and target with knives. There is also a water reservoir locked up in chains and scattered signs of the values of the cards being played: these range from nine to ace.
There is only one special symbol: Wild, represented by a magician’s hat. When a wild hat appears on the same reel as a magic hat, the Magic Hat feature is going to be triggered. If multiple hats are activated at once, the Wild Reel hat is won followed by the Cash Hat then the Free Spins Hat.
The Rabbit in the Hat game rewards players through a system referred to as Magic Hat. Any one of four cylindrical hats can appear above the reels and drop out from the fifth to first reel with every new spin. If a Wild symbol appears under any of the reels a bonus feature is activated.
Wild Reed – this bonus feature turns any one reel into a wild reel. The transformed reel can then split up to create two more reels. However, the wild reel will only split up if the new wild reel completes a winning combination.
Free Spins – The Free Spins Hat round grants players as much as 10 Free Spins. Any winnings in this round are multiplied by the value being awarded during a Free Spin, and the player wins a x1 multiplier. Players can win a maximum of 50 Free Spins, each of which can be re-triggered.
Cash – The Cash Hat bonus round guarantees players to win a random bonus amount. The amounts in this bonus game will be multiplied by the total wager that had been previously set.
Magic Hat Prizes – This feature awards the player with anyone random of the other bonus features.
Note, however, that once the hat shows up on top of one of the reels, you aren’t allowed to change your wager. If you do, the hats disappear.

Before trying your luck at conjuring up magic, you will first need to fix your bet. This can be done using the ‘bet’ option and the positive and negative signs to adjust your bet accordingly.
