Misfit Toyland Slots
Toyland is familiar, for sure, as it has appeared in countless children's stories. However, Misfit Toyland sounds like somewhere totally different. Could it be somewhere worth visiting?
The festive theme of this game might seem obvious, but this isn't the game you think it is. What do we mean by that? Read the rest of our game review here and you'll soon have all the answers.
Kudos to this developer - Rival Gaming - for turning the traditional festive slot game on its head.
They are there, as you knew they would be, thanks to the practice mode always included in Rival Gaming slots.
How does this theme differ from other festive ones?
We find ourselves in a land where Christmas toys from years gone by have been left and forgotten. Old, broken, and discarded toys provide us with an unusual and strangely captivating theme to enjoy.
Design elements in Misfit Toyland
The game is designed over a snowy background with fir trees up close and in the distance. It provides a good 3D effect. The reels are superimposed over the backdrop, so there is far more depth there than your average slot has.
How to play Misfit Toyland
This game offers five reels, but there are no jackpots to be won other than the prizes in the paytable.
The wild is special here, as it expands whenever it appears. It is shown as a jack in the box - a popular toy, but this one looks like it has seen far better days.
We also get a scatter, which is none other than Santa himself. He's a busy guy, but he finds time to appear in this game. That's good news too, for reasons we'll shortly come to.
No paylines in this game
Instead you've got 243 winning ways to try and collect prizes on. That is every conceivable way you could get on a 5 x 3 grid.
Lots of betting potential in this game
Coins range from one to 25 cents apiece. However, you can bet from one to 10 coins per play, assuming a multiplier of 30x on each bet. The game works as if there were 30 lines, even though there are way wins involved. It's normal practice.
An easy to find paytable
The table is in the top right and left corners of the game, so it's simple enough to find.
Can you unlock the bonus?
The bonus feature is Santa's to give! Find him at least three times in a base game and the Choose a Toy bonus begins.
Three toys give you three ways to play 10 free games. If you choose the broken truck, that truck behaves as a sticky wild icon throughout. If you go for the jack in the box option, the expanding wild stays on the middle reel for all the spins. Or you could go for the sinking ship toy, so called because it sinks from its landing position on every reel except for the first one.
That's three ways to play the free spins
It gives the game more mileage if you play for long enough to trigger the round two or three times.
No RTP value is confirmed
It's a shame, but not unusual for games from this developer.

Which symbol pays the most?
Look for the guy with a mustache riding a pink pig. Yes, really! He pays out the best prizes if you find five on a line. Next up is the doll.
