From fat boy Georgie Porgie, we now go to another fat boy in Hearts & Tarts, the second game in the Rhyming Reels series. Fat boys and fat ladies seem to be very popular with Microgaming designers, for one reason or another, which I don't even want to know why either. In this game, we can see why the boy cannot be slim. He's forever munching on a tart biscuit, a tart cookie, a tart whatever. No wonder he's a tart fart. Err, I mean a tad fat.

The logo 'Hearts & Tarts' is the Wild symbol, 5 of which pays 4000x the line bet. It doubles all wins with it, and substitutes for other symbols except for the Scatter symbol. It isn't stacked in the base game but is stacked in the Free Spins game. The Crown is the Scatter symbol, 5 of which pays 200x the total bet, which is doubled the usual, and that's fairly good. Getting 3, 4 or 5 of the Scatter symbols trigger 10 free spins with all wins doubled, and more free spins can be retriggered. The paytable indicates 'win up to 2.4 million coins' in the Free Spins game, or 8,000x the total bet, but I really cannot see how this can be achieved or won in any Free Spins game that has only 10 free spins for starters, and with only a 2x multiplier. Even with many retriggers, which is a big rarity for any Microgaming game, and with just an average paytable, I just cannot work it out. Could this be a mistake from the game designers, or just a marketing hype to attract players to keep on playing? I really do not know. It just seems so impossible to achieve! As for the symbols in the game, the Fat Lady pays 1000x, the Fat Boy pays 800x, the Waitresses pay 600x, and the rest pay from 400x to 30x, all per line bet for 5 of each kind. An average paytable but more on the low side.


The first thing that I found was that the Autoplay button doesn't work at all, which was a nuisance, because I had to manually make the spins, or settle for that miserable 10 spins on auto option. Why it wasn't functioning, I had no idea. The Fat Lady symbol is stacked in both the base game and in the Free Spins game, but the Wild symbol is only stacked in the Free Spins game. Nonetheless, in my plays, the Wild symbol hardly come stacked at all, mostly just single Wild symbols on the reels, as compared to the regular stacked Fat Lady symbols. This was disappointing to me, because I would prefer the Wilds to be more frequently stacked, providing more chances for wins. The stacked Fat Lady symbols were hardly ever useful anyway.

The Free Spins games were hard to come by, but I did get 2 of them in one of my plays, but the payouts were worlds apart. One was a blardy low 4x, whilst the other one was a decent 50x my bet amount. Generally speaking, I did not enjoy playing Hearts & Tarts, and this game isn't even close to that of Georgie Porgie's game.

This was one of the very first Microgaming slots I played, so it's great to see it really hasn't aged very much at all after all this time. The graphics could look a little better, in particular some of the symbols look a little rough, so perhaps that aspect of the game would benefit from one of the "HD Makeovers" that Microgaming has been giving their older games such as Loaded and Sure Win lately, but apart from that it plays just as well as ever.

The vast majority of this games payout potential is reserved to the stacked "tarts" symbols, so you'll be hoping to get as many of those onscreen at once as possible during the base game if you want to have a profitable session. The wild symbol doubles any payline win it forms a part of, and the 30 paylines make it possible to win on a large number of lines simultaneously.

The free spins round adds a 2x multiplier and stacked wild symbols to the reels too, making a full screen of top symbols a little easier to achieve - it's just a shame that, like always, you spend so little of your time playing the game inside that elusive bonus round!

The jackpot is tantalisingly high at 2.4 million coins, which is what Microgaming slots are all about really. You'll need a full screen of wilds during the free spins in order to achieve this, which sadly I've never even got close to, but it's the possibility that keeps us playing after all.

If this game feels a little familiar it might be because you have played the newer game "Deck The Halls", which is a copy of the maths model and paytable used in this slot, obviously with a christmas theme. That game doesn't look quite as old as this one, but it feels a little odd playing a christmas game in the middle of summer to me, so I prefer to play this game for most of the year.

Rhyming Reels Hearts and Tarts is the first game that I have played from the Rhyming Reels series. I got 33 euros big win as soon as I started playing, I had 5 of a kind symbols on 2 or 3 lines. Just 2 spins later I got another big win of 24 euros. So far I liked the game. I was constantly getting something around 30 x bet during the base game.

This is another game that is based on nursery rhymes. This is a 5 reels and 30 pay lines video slot game from Microgaming software provider. All of the symbols are related to the theme so you can see some gloves, tarts which are heart shaped, maids, the Knave and the Queen of course. This slot, besides the stacked Queen offers free spins. For 3 or more crown scatter symbols you get 10 free spins, a feature that I love, especially in this slot. All the wins are doubled during the free spins and if you get the queen on an active play line then all your wins will be quadrupled. The free spins can be retriggered but that have not happened yet.

The last time I played this slot I remember I was just at my 20th spin and I already had 50 euros more on my balance. I was playing with 0.90 euros per spin. At this point I decided to raise my bet. I had a feeling that I will get the bonus or the free spins soon. I have started playing with 1.80 per spin. The wins were higher, that is for sure, but my balance has started to drop. I did not manage to trigger the free spins at that point so I lower my bet. I did not want to lose all my money so fast. I wanted to play a bit more. Even though the last time was not that successful I still believe that this game is definitely worth trying.
