Cats Slot Machine
I loaded this slot with some trepidation, fearful that I was going to find another kitsch slot like Kitty Glitter. Luckily my fears were ill founded. Cats from IGT is very much focused on the bigger variety of cats – lions, tigers, cougars, panthers and leopards to be precise. This slot has a novel feature whereby the symbols can come in pairs. This means that even though there are only 5 reels, you can get 10 of a kind on one win-line –which will result in some big prizes.
The background music on this slot is a bit of a contradiction. It is electronic and atmospheric. Unfortunately, this stops between spins, giving a jerk back to reality effect which is opposed to the relaxation the music is supposed to inspire. There are plenty of roars for the wins included too. The symbols themselves are well designed, giving a classy effect overall.
Other than the paired cats (some reels have a pair of lions for example, which count as 2 for the winning combinations), there is nothing too interactive about this game. There is a free spins bonus round, and regular wins using the ‘Cats’ logo are doubled. Other than that it is a straight forward game, which will appeal to those who like to sit back and enjoy their slots without too intensive an experience. The top regular win is 10,000 coins, which gives an edge of excitement all of its own.
