Our Cats Overview

As mentioned above, Cats uses a reel set of five reels in three rows and a total of 30 paylines. The action in the game takes place in in the African savannah. The reel set is placed in a yellowish frame which is set against a background of some African savannah scenery. The game’s logo is put on top of the reel set with the paylines placed on the sides.

When the reel set is in question, they are decked with symbols that can be divided into two groups. The low-value symbols include standard playing card symbols, while the high-value symbols are on-theme representing different members of the feline family. The J, Q, K, and A in different colours are the games lower values awarding payouts for combinations of three, four, and five matching symbols.

The group of high-value symbols comprises a range of wild cats that include a leopard, a lion, a tiger, and a panther, among others.

The Cats logo is used as the game’s wild symbol and it substitutes for all other symbols, except for the paw print scatter symbol. The paw print scatter symbol activates the bonus game of Cats slot.

How to Play Cats

As with most online slots, operating Cats slot is quite straightforward because all buttons in the game are located at the bottom of the screen. Before giving the reel set a spin, you’ll need to set your total stake for the spin. In Cats, this is done by selecting the desired number of paylines and setting your Line Bet.

By pressing the + and – buttons on the sides of the Lines box, you can select anywhere between one and 30 active paylines. Next to it is the Line Bet box where you can select your bet per active payline. In similar manner, by pressing the + and – buttons on the sides of the Line Bet box, you can select your Line Bet. The available coin sizes range between 0.01 and 20.00 which more than enough to make this slot suitable for both beginners and seasoned spinners.

Your total stake for the spin will be your selected coin size multiplied by the number of active paylines. Our recommendation is to play as many paylines as possible, within your budget, so that you get more chances of landing a winning combo on any of the active paylines.

Once you are done setting your total bet for the spin, you can spin the reels of Cats slots. To do this, you need to press the round yellow Spin button in the bottom centre of the screen.

By pressing the blue Auto Spin button in the bottom right corner of the screen, you are presented with several numbers of rounds to be played automatically. Here, you can also set additional options for the spins. As soon as you make your selection, the reels start spinning for and the remaining number of rounds is displayed. You can stop this feature at any given time by pressing the ‘Stop’ button.

How to Win Cats

The base game payouts in Cats slots are awarded for landing symbol combinations on the reels. The payouts that you receive are dependent on the number of symbols that form the winning combination.

As mentioned, the standard playing card symbols are the lower-value symbols and pay for combinations of three, four, and five identical symbols. Their payouts are lower than the high-value symbols and don’t have the Split Symbol alternative.

The cat symbols have the higher values in the game, with the panther paying out the most. Combined with the Split Symbol special, you have the opportunity to land combos of impressive 10 symbols. So, if you land five split symbols across an active payline, you will receive the equivalent of a 10 symbol payout. Split Symbols look like the usual cat symbols but with two on them. If the symbol has two cats on it, that means it’s the equivalent of landing two cat symbols. So, if you land a panther split symbol on reel number one, next to a single panther on reels two and three, you’ll will get a payout as for landing four symbols.   

Cats Bonus Features

Split Symbols

This is the feature in Cats slots where you can win the most money in the game. As stated above, you’ll notice that when you spin the reels, each animal is featured twice on a number of symbols. If you land these double symbols, it will count as two of that symbols and make the creation of winning combos much easier.

This feature can also help you trigger the free spins round as the paw print scatter symbol is also doubled.

Free Spins

The free spins round in Cats can be triggered by landing five or six of the paw print scatters anywhere on the centre three reels. Five of the paw print scatters will get you five free spins, but six of them will reward you with generous ten free spins. The good thing is that this feature can be retriggered within the round.
