Misfit Toyland is being offered by Rival Gaming as an extra choice that you have this Christmas season, as a slot machine that has the right theme, but with the twist that things aren’t like you’d expect, the toys being the naughty ones in this case.
You have 5 reels that you will spin in Misfit Toyland, while 243 ways to win are available on them. The game gives you free spins with different types of wilds, expanding wilds during regular rounds, plus scatters. You don’t get the biggest rewards from it, the largest ones offered apparently only reaching $1,250.
Betting and Prizes
When you’re choosing what bet to use in Misfit Toyland, you need to realize that you are ultimately betting on ways to win, even though there are paylines in the wager system. You have 30 fixed lines for this reason, and there is no way to change this part. You can only multiply the number of coins, by up to 10, or change the denomination within a range of $0.01 to $0.25. This way, the game lets you spend up to $2.50 for one line, or up to $75 total.
You don’t have the best payouts in Misfit Toyland either, the biggest prizes offered by regular combinations getting up to 500x. With the wagers available in this game, it means that you can get $1,250 cash from a single combo.
Misfit Toyland Slot Features
One of the two symbols that are getting extra roles in the base game is the Jack-In-The-Box one, which is an expanding wild. You can have expanding wilds appear on the reels 1, 2 or 3, and once they’re there they will expand and cover their columns completely, as long as a winning combination will be formed as a result. If it’s about forming a winning line, then the wild can contribute to any combination.
A Santa Doll is going to be the second feature symbol of the game, the scatter in this case. If you have these symbols appear a minimum of three times during regular spins, it will mean that you will be taken to the free spins mode. At this point, you get a new screen, where you have to choose one of the three types of free spins. They all offer you 10 free spins, but the difference is in the type of extra feature that will be available for those rounds.
Broken Truck is the option where you get this symbol as an extra sticky wild, to remain in its position whenever it makes an appearance.
Jack-In-The-Box is the option where you always get an expanding wild for the 3rd reel, while the free spins are in use.
Finally, with Sinking Ship you will have this symbol appear as a wild on the last four reels, sinking and then expanding on them when this happens.
Those are not particularly impressive wild features, so they could’ve done a little bit more to make the three types of free spins more appealing, but free is free and I can’t complain much.
Theme & Design
Misfit Toyland appears to be taking us into Santa’s workshop, a place filled with toys of all kinds. They’re misbehaving if the game’s theme is anything to go by. Look at the reels, and you will get from them images of pigs, dolls, elves, Santa, Jack-in-the-box, toy soldiers, soap bubbles and all sorts of other figurines. There will be less interesting poker logos as well.
Misfit Toyland doesn’t have the best design around, nor the highest average RTP or fixed jackpot, but it does offer a slightly quirky design style and a different approach to the Christmas theme.
