While the name of this Aristocrat slot is a bit of a tongue-twister, the game itself is both unique and entertaining. There is a certain ‘Alice in Wonderland’ feel to the game, without any obvious trademark infringements. Unusually, the reels are a 4×4 grid. Wilds and scatters mean that wins can come from anywhere on the 10 lines. Extra wilds during the free spins round also give Bunny’s Rabbits the potential for substantial wins.
Even though the setup of this slot is unique, it still keeps the characteristics shared by all Aristocrat games. This includes the galloping click sound as the reels stop, and the playing card symbols which appear on all Aristocrat titles. While this slot started as a live casino favorite, it can now also be played online. You cannot play this game online from either the US or Australia.
The total spin amount is controlled in the traditional way of choosing the number of lines and bet size. I recommend all 10 lines, since this gives the wild symbol the best chance to be included in multiple combinations. The minimum bets will vary between casinos, with 10c being the lowest amount online. Live casinos are normally higher than this.
You’ll be hoping to see as many white rabbits with fire coming from its nose as possible in this game. This is the wild symbol, and also gives you the biggest payouts. 4 rabbits on a win-line gets you 750 coins – and will usually win more by combining with other symbols on the other lines. The other main symbol is a lady in a top hat (presumably, this is ‘Bunny’ from the title), this is also a wild symbol. Other winners include a knight, a dragon, a teapot and a ginger cat – and of course the familiar playing designs which are the same across the entire Aristocrat range.
After a win you will be offered the opportunity to gamble. You can select a simple 50 / 50 here, which involves choosing red or black for a randomly drawn playing card. You can also select from the suits to add some extra excitement to your post-win gambling.
The rose feature is the scatter in this game. This has the dual role of giving you a win and also triggering the free spins bonus round.
You’ll get free spins for landing 4 or more red roses anywhere on the reels. 10 roses gets you 10 spins, 5 for 15, 6 for 20 and 7 for the best available 25 free spins. This feature can be retriggered during play.
When witch appears during the bonus around, extra wilds are created. This can be any of the standard symbols (which one is decided on the first free spin where the witch appears). She will wave a wand, and symbols of the selected type will transform into wilds. As you can imagine, this substantially increases the amount of winning combinations.
This slot will not be for everyone, the theme and quirky setup combine to make it one of those ‘love it or hate it’ type of games. What I do like about this slot is the solid Aristocrat gameplay which backs up the novel setup. With many years of experience, the designers really know how to put playability first. The 4×4 setup is easy to get used to and the ‘missing’ 5th reel takes nothing away from the experience. I recommend this game for players looking for something different, I think you’ll enjoy the game once you get over the quirkiness of the name and setup.
If you are looking for similarly themed slots with more of a standard 5-reel setup, then you should try Aristocrat’s White Wizard too.
