Cats & Cash Slot
The Cats and Cash slot from Play'n Go is exactly what it sounds like; cats and cash - two of the world’s most popular things brought together in an online slot format, ready to be taken for a spin by gamblers with a soft spot for cute felines and cold, hard cash.
This new slot is best enjoyed and played at LeoVegas Casino when it launches this July.
This medium volatility slot comes with a theme taken straight from the golden age of TV game shows, something you’ll notice for sure once you trigger the bonus features that consists of both picking a gift box and taking a swing at the wheel of fortune.
Both of these features can net you a solid prize in the 5000x your bet per line. A far better payout than Thunderkicks' Not Enough Kittens, is also a Cat slot, with a max win of 3650 the stake.
You’ll either hate it, or love it - cats, or not cats. The best part is the fact that it’s made by Play'n GO, which means a consistent and smooth user experience regardless of the type of device you use to play, thanks to the HTML 5-technology. The theme is a solid piece of work, and even though you get excited when winning sizable prizes, it’s quite a relaxing game experience.
Design and Symbols
The symbols used in the game are not as common as other slot symbols, albeit typical gambling ones. Here you’ll find gold bars, jewelled necklaces, stacks of cash, different cats, bonus symbols, and scatters. Choose between 1 to 15 pay lines, and set a bet size you're comfortable playing with on this standard 5 reels with 3 rows each video slot, boasting an RTP of 96.07%.
- The highest paying symbol is the golden bars symbol
- The lowest paying symbols are the pink- and bowtie cats
- The scatter symbol is a goldfish in a bowl
- The wild symbol is the cat hosting the game show, holding a microphone
- The wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except for the scatter- and bonus ones, and pays x2 when in a winning combination
As with most slots nowadays, Cats and Cash also comes with special features; namely the Wheel of Fortune, and the Pick-a-gift bonus. They're not super exciting, but who are we to argue when the top prize is a cool 5000x the initial bet per line?
Check the details of the slot's special features below.
Wheel of Fortune
The most important bonus feature in Cats and Cash is the Wheel of Fortune, with a fairly large top prize of up to 5000x your bet pr. pay line.
Albeit not the most amazing feature one can muster in an online slot with cats, the Wheel of Fortune is as old school and traditional as carnivals and fairs. The difference being that this fortune wheel’s top prize ain’t a teddy bear, but a cool 5000x your bet.
The bonus feature is triggered by landing 3- or more colourful wheel symbols with the word “BONUS” written all over them, from left to right on an active pay line.
How the result of this bonus feature plays out is entirely up to you. Let the wheel come to a stop by itself and cross your fingers, or use the “Stop” feature in an attempt to time the stop perfectly.
An additional - and potentially very profitable - feature in the Wheel of Fortune bonus feature is the respin one. See those orange fields on the wheel? If the needle stops on one of these, you will get an instant prize and a free spin.
The second most important special feature of the Cats and Cash video slot is the Pick-a-Gift bonus, with a smooth 2000x your bet per line.
As with the Wheel of Fortune bonus, The Pick-a-Gift feature triggers by landing 3 or more bonus symbols on an active pay line, from left to right too.
The symbols to look for are the gift-wrapped boxes. Once you trigger the bonus, you’ll get to choose 1 out of 10 boxes in total, containing a prize worth anything from 5 to 2000x your bet.
The Wild Cat symbol
Not a true feature in the sense of bonus features, but one that nonetheless increases your prize money and therefore worth knowing the value of.
The wild symbol is the cool cat holding the microphone - the host of the show - and your best but in the base game as he not only substitutes all symbols and doubles all win, except for the bonus and scatters ones. This cool cat can net you 10.000 your bet per line if you get x5 of him on an active pay line.
Reviewers' thoughts on Cats and Cash
The theme of the Cats and Cash slot focuses on game shows, with the “star of the show” being the Wheel of Fortune bonus, triggered by 3 or more wheel-shaped bonus symbols. The original Wheel of Fortune game show from the USA aired for the first time in 1975, and is still going strong till this day, with over 6000 episodes aired so far + over 60 international adaptations to it.I’d say Play’n GO knows exactly what they’re doing when combining gambling with cats, game shows and video slots. It’s a fun experience for sure!
Cats and Cash is not a revolutionising slot. In this case though, it’s a good thing, because in the fast-paced world of online gambling, and with regards to slots in particular - it’s nice to have an unpretentious slot that gives you exactly what you want: a thorough design, from theme to user experience, and medium volatility to score you some medium to big wins now and then.
