Cheshire Cat

Cheshire Cat is an online slots game from WMS that's inspired by Lewis Carroll's tales of Alice in Wonderland.


Along with a cheeky feline who can't stop grinning, there are plenty of other familiar characters that can help you start winning such as The White Rabbit, Alice, and the Caterpillar. Land the Wheel of Fortune scatter three or more times on the screen, and you'll be off to the tea party with twenty free spins on up to four sets of reels.

There are also Mystery Symbols which can help you hook big wins through the looking glass, as a random paytable symbol is chosen and added to each reel. With five, reels and forty paylines, the Cheshire Cat slot from WMS is playable from 40p per spin.

More about the Software Provider

WMS is part of Scientific Games, and the company's history dates back to the 1940s when it first began making pinball machines for amusement arcades. In more recent years, WMS has moved away from creating physical games and has instead, started producing online slots which can also be enjoyed on mobile devices. Among its most well-known slot games are Epic Monopoly II, Frozen Inferno, Zeus III, Lady of Egypt, Giant's Gold, and Crystal Forest HD.

Appearance and Sound Effects

Cheshire Cat is set in the countryside where bushy trees, golden hedgerows, red-and-yellow toadstools, lush grasses, and summer-blue skies form the game's background. The reels use the same sky-blue colour, and across them, you'll see lots of Wonderland-inspired symbols including the Caterpillar doing his knitting, the White Rabbit staring aghast at his timepiece, Alice reclining dreamily, a piece of cake, a vial of green liquid, the game logo, the Cheshire Cat, a wheel of fortune, and four playing card symbols topped with crowns and banners. The slot also comes with a jaunty tune which plays while you're spinning the reels unless you mute it.

You can form winning combos on adjacent reels from left to right using three or more matching symbols (or with wild substitutions).

Bonuses and Special Features

The Cheshire Cat game logo is the wild symbol in this fun and entertaining WMS slots game, and it's there to try and help you win more frequently by replacing all symbols except the Bonus symbol.

The game also comes with a Free Spins Feature that's triggered whenever three or more Wheel of Fortune Bonus symbols land anywhere in view. Three bonus symbols give you five free games; four bonus symbols give you ten free games plus ten times your total bet, and five bonus symbols give you twenty free spins plus fifty times your total bet. At the beginning of each free spin, the Wheel of Fortune spins to determine how many reel sets are used (N.B., you can play with up to four reel sets on each free spin) and how many wild reels are awarded.

In the base game and the Free Spins Bonus, a Mystery Symbol is chosen from the paytable prior to each spin, and more instances of that symbol are added to every reel.

Paylines/Reels

Cheshire Cat uses five reels, four rows of symbols, and forty paylines, and has an above average RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 95.94%.

Mobile Compatibility

The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-friendly game controls when played on mobile devices.
