Humpty Dumpty FROM Games Global
The tale of Humpty Dumpty is one we’re all too familiar with. As enthusiastic climbers in our youth, we’ve heard it many times over, so the funny looking egg was like seeing a familiar friend you haven’t talked to in forever. More so than just a friendly face, however, this slot offers players 5 reels and 25 paylines that pay left to right, in which you can find Wilds that will occasionally pause the reels for a single re-spin when you get lucky, and the most fortunate get to see the infamous fall of our brave, climbing egg. There’s plenty to talk about, so let’s get right into it, and open up with a name most people don’t know much in games.
HOW TO PLAY
While the game performs on the Microgaming platform, the developer behind it is Push Gaming, which is probably the reason why the slot stands out as much as it does visually. While there’s nothing new in doing a game themed around a children’s story, the way the characters are drawn has rather impressed us, and honestly, we wish we got to see more beyond just the top paying five being this unique portrait style of characters. But the interesting looking visuals don’t carry a title by itself, and when it comes to gameplay, Humpty Dumpty doesn’t really innovate much.
While it’s fun to play, we have seen all it does in other releases, though we don’t hold it against the new developers too hard. The special features are great fun when they make an appearance, and we’ve managed to grab some tidy wins here and there even without their effect. It’s fun and you can turn a small to medium profit on it if you get lucky and play it well, but fans of massive wins might not find it to their tastes.

BETTING OPTIONS AND PAYOUTS
As such, while Push Gaming’s release does allow you to bet as high as $100, we wouldn’t recommend it unless you’re feeling incredibly lucky that day. The big wins usually come from the Scatter bonus, and occasionally, the re-spin from the Wild can happen two or three times in a row, but these are exceptions rather than the rules, so most of the time you’ll be going through very small wins or dead spins. With no progressive jackpot to look forward to either, you’re either committed to getting a big win off those bonuses or you’re going to walk off with considerably less cash in your pocket.
SYMBOLS AND EXTRA FEATURES
The symbols in Humpty Dumpty are rather done in a fun style. You’ll find the King’s horses, the King’s men, the King, the Queen, and even the villagers themselves, but it’s all for naught, as poor Humpty’s destined to crack eventually! The rest of the icons don’t unfortunately stand out as much, as they’re just stylized symbols that we’ve already seen many times over, and there’s only so many ways you can draw a set of letters and numbers. The hero of our story assumes the role of Scatter in this slot.
However, unlike most other titles, he only appears on the third reel and only makes himself useful if he covers the full reel, as that’s when Humpty Dumpty falls and gives 6 free spins. On top of that, once the extra turns are finally active, heart symbols start appearing on the playing field in the second, third and fourth reel. Collect all three of them while the free spins last, and the reel is filled up with Wilds until the end of the feature. The second bonus is a re-spin that happens each time Wild appears on the reels. The reel Wild appears on gets locked for a single turn, while all the other spin again, allowing you to potentially net two wins in a row if you’re lucky.
It certainly won’t blow any minds, but it’s a fun game to play if you’re looking for something new. The special features are all familiar and take a bit of chasing to unlock while some medium sized wins await those who persist in doing so. We had our fun with it, and we’d recommend it if you’re in the mood for something new but familiar.
