Cats is a 5-reel, 30-line slot game brought to you by IGT. This high-quality slot game enters you into a world filled with wild cats. These are not your normal cats, though, as they have the ability to double your prizes. Like any other great online slot game, Cats features enticing extras like wilds, scatters, split symbols, and a free spins bonus round. The game also loads pretty fast. You can enjoy playing this IGT slot game on both Windows and Mac computer systems.
As the name suggests, this game is all about wild cats. The game appears to be shot somewhere in Africa - in the savannah plain land. You need to know that most wild cats, if not all, love staying in hot and less vegetative areas, where they can spot prey miles away. You will therefore encounter the savannah grass land where the grass easily camouflages the wild cats’ colors.
Wildlife themed slots are always popular with players and this one reminds me a little of Safari Madness by Netent and the Safari Sam video slot by Betsoft, as well as some popular Vegas slot games such as OMG! Puppies.
On the reels you will come across imagery similar to that found in a BBC documentary - the Cats Logo, Paw Prints, Black Panthers, Tigers, Lions, Mountain Lions, and Cheetahs. You will also come across the poker card values: Ace, Jack, King, and Queen.
The Cats Logo is the wild symbol and it substitutes all other symbols on the reels except the scatter, which is represented by the Paw Print.
IGT has really done well when it comes to this game's features. First up is the Auto Play button that allows you to make between 10 and 50 automatic spins. This means that you do not have to stop the game every time you need a break. Just put the game in auto-play and all your wins will be automatically added to your account.
The other feature that you will love is the Splits Symbols feature. In Cats, each Cat comes in 2 varieties: single or double. The single symbols have only 1 cat while double symbols feature 2 cats. Each reel has both single and double versions of each cat. All winning combinations in base play are determined by the number of matching cats on a line and not just the number of symbols that match. The double symbols therefore are the most lucrative as getting 5 in an active line will get you as much as 10 matching cats.
You will be able to activate the Cats Free Spins by getting 5 or more Paw Prints on reels 2, 3, and 4. Like the Cats, the Paw Prints come in singles or doubles. Four Paw Prints on reels 2, 3, and 4 will win you 2X your total bet. Five Paw Prints on reels 2, 3, and 4 will activate Free Spins mode, rewarding lucky players with 5 free spins; 6 Paw Prints on reels 2, 3, and 4 will get you 10 free spins. All paylines and bets played in this bonus round are the same as the ones that triggered the feature. All control buttons remain inactive during Free Spins. The bonus round will come to an end when you run out of free spins or when you win the top prize of 10,000 coins.
The Split Symbol counts as 2 symbols whenever it is involved in a winning combination. All bonus and scatter wins are added to payline wins. All winning combinations pay from left to right except those formed by scatters which pay either way.
This IGT slot game gives you a chance to choose between 1 and 30 paylines. You can also adjust your bet per line. This is obviously a very wide bet range and this simply means you will always find a favorable bet value that fits your bankroll. The max bet per line is 10.00, making for a maximum max bet set at 300.00.
Cats is a high-quality, high-definition slot game that features all the great features of an exceptional slot. The Split feature is particularly very creative and adds a nice, unique touch. The winning combinations also hit pretty regularly so this is a game that won't devour your bankroll. The paylines, line bets, and total bets are all clearly indicated at the bottom of the screen. Cats is truly a revolutionary game that will most certainly appeal to both new and experienced slot players.
