Games developer Arcadem released The Hatter’s Mad Tea Party on June 22, 2021. This video slot is adapted from a chapter in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (by author Lewis Carroll; originally dated 1865).
Plot: a girl, Alice, accidentally plunges into a burrow, thus encountering a friendly man named Mad Hatter and his guest March Hare. The time-stopping fugitive Mad Hatter and hare are frozen in tea time and therefore forever drinking the beverage while listening to their dozing, storytelling and cat-fearing mutual friend rodent Dormouse.
