Diamond Cats Slot Machine
I have to admit that my heart sank just a little when I saw this slot. It was caused by the cats. Now, I know some people love them, and enjoy a glitzy slot with furry friends staring back at you from the reels. For me, this kind of slot (and famous rivals including Kitty Glitter from IGT and OMG Kittens! From WMS) are just plain wrong. On the plus side, a free spins game with sticky wilds did help – and the top prizes are very generous from what can start as a penny slot.
As with most Amatic slots, the visual design is solid and functional – rather than detailed or attractive. There is an almost kitsch leopard skin look to the outside of the reels, which has been shaded blue. The background to the reels is also blue, and the symbols are mostly full-face portraits of different cats.
There is a white one with a pink background, two grey ones, a Siamese one, a ginger one and a tabby one. All look right at you from the reels. Just in case you needed a little more glamour, there is also a princess (complete with diamond tiara) – which I’m assuming has the diamond part of the title covered. A pink gem makes up the wild symbol, a pink box with ‘bonus spins’ triggers the free spins game – and playing card symbols (which are a lot more soberly designed) complete the set.
Unlike many Amatic slots, you’ll get animations on the reels for winning combinations. What happens is that the symbol ‘zooms out’ on the cats involved in wins, showing the entire cat, which then gets surrounded by different coloured sparking stars.
