Queenie was a popular girl name in Victorian England, particularly in the East End of London and is sometimes used as an affectionate and affectionate version of the word ‘Queen’. In today’s review, this refers to one of the most eccentric characters in the Alice in Wonderland saga, namely the Queen of Hearts. This Queen of Hearts is no stranger to reels, having starred in many slots before. This one is brought to you by Pragmatic Play and partner Wild Streak Gaming and gives players a more moody representation of the famous Queen alongside extras like feature wheels, jackpots, plus free spins.
Wild Streak Gaming slots tend to have an old-fashioned look, and Queenie is no exception. This slot has a similar look and feel to their games we’ve been through, Gold Party being one example that comes to mind. If they were made to look like this on purpose or not, who can say, but the graphics will probably turn potential players on or off in a moment. If you like games that seem precocious, Queenie might love it. However, if you prefer a more contemporary look, Queenie may struggle to catch your eye. The same goes for Queenie’s gameplay as well, which has a similar dated feel.

We found this slot model to be very volatile, returning an RTP to players of 96.51%. The game can be played on any device, has a 5-reel, 3-line game panel and provides 243 ways to win. The stakes start from IDR 250 to IDR 1250,000 per spin and are equipped with a free spin purchase function.
Starting on the leftmost reel, matching symbols pay from left to right, and require at least three of a kind to do so. For low paying lots, we get a 9-A card rank, having the same value of 1x the bet for five of a kind. Moving on to the premiums, there are pocket watches, crowns, top hats, Rabbit characters and Queen of Hearts that pay out 2-10x the bet for five of a kind. The big red heart symbol is a wild and appears on reels 2, 3, or 4. One thing it does is replaces all other symbols, while its secondary function is to occasionally trigger the wheel feature.
Queenie Slots Features
Continuing from the previous point, every time a wild symbol hits, there is a possibility that the wheel feature is activated. When that happens, the wheel partially hidden behind the reels will be visible and spin once, to provide:
- Prize money worth 8-200 times the total bet.
- Random multiplier x2 to x100 which applies to the total spin win.
- A number of wild symbols are added to the screen on reels 2, 3, 4, or 5.
- Trigger the jackpot feature.
- Free spins trigger.
- Jackpot Bonus Game
When this is activated, the cards appear all over the screen, and the player clicks on them one by one. When 3 matching jackpots have been revealed, the corresponding prize is paid out. The four jackpots are Mini, Minor, Major and Grand, worth 20x, 50x, 200x and 4,000x stake respectively. It is possible to reveal a Boost card. When this happens, the jackpot amount increases by a random amount of 5x to 800x the total bet.
If the feature wheel stops in the free spin segment, the number of spins shown will be given. The rules are pretty much the same as the base game, except when the wild symbol hits it always triggers the feature wheel. This means that the free spins can be re-triggered if won from the wheel.
Buy Free Spins
Where applicable, players can purchase free spins at a cost of 100x the stake. When purchased, the feature wheel spins to determine how many free spins are awarded.
Queenie is not without charm, but it sure helps if you appreciate Wild Streak’s special style to recognize her. First, the darker, more mature presentation of Alice in Wonderland makes a departure from the studio’s usual psychedelic cartoon approach. Half the time, we kind of forgot we were playing an Alice game; The Queen’s unblinking steel eyes were somewhat unsettling. However, there are touches, like Rabbit, Card Soldier, and so on, that make Queenie a little celebration of Lewis Carroll’s work.
