The 1648 siege of the Essex town of Colchester appears to be most closely linked with the children’s rhyme featuring Humpty Dumpty but for us this ill-fated egg is the theme of this online slot machine from 2By2 Gaming; it’s packed with features about which you can read more below.
Humpty Dumpty Wild Riches is a five reel slot with three rows and thirty fixed paylines; gold-rimmed reels float in the air against a mountainous backdrop which doesn’t look at all like Essex.
The high value symbols include a mounted soldier, what looks like a historically inaccurate Hussar, a white horse, a castle, a bag of gold coins and some colourful toadstools; 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values. The high value symbols can appear stacked two positions high.
Humpty Dumpty is wild and only appears on reel three, stacked three positions high; he substitutes for all others except for the bonus icon.
Humpty Dumpty Wild
This is triggered by filling all positions on reel three with Humpty Dumpty and you will now see him crack into a number of body parts, adding an extra reel to the set and making reels three and four completely wild. Additional single wilds may be added to reels two and five and then any payouts will be evaluated.
Trigger this by landing three of the bonus symbols anywhere on reels two, three and four and you will be prompted to pick one of the following free spins modes:
- Freezing Wild Free Spins – awards 8 free spins with six reels and locked wilds on reels three and four; above the reels two characters called Humpty & Dumpty are on either ends of a trail and each time a scatter symbol lands on reels two or five they move one place towards each other. When they meet two extra spins are awarded and all remaining wins are multiplier by 2x.
- Humpty Dumpty Free Spins – awards 10 free spins with Humpty & Dumpty once again above the reels moving towards each other with each scatter symbol. When they meet three extra spins are won and a multiplier of 2x for any further wins is awarded. The reel set beings at the standard size but the Humpty Dumpty Wild feature can be activated here.
In both modes, landing two scatters will also award two extra spins.
Humpty Dumpty Wild Riches is a feature-packed slot with a patchy grasp of historical context but a faithful adherence to the certain aspects of the nursery rhyme; both features contain big wins if you can trigger them and there’s an RTP of 96.05%.
