OMG! Kittens by WMS released on 18.12.2014 is a 5-reel & 4-row online slot with 40 paylines and a 95.85% RTP. This is a cat-themed game offering players a max win of up to 1000x their stake. OMG! Kittens can be played on all devices from €0.4 to €100 per spin and is considered a medium volatility game.
Design and Symbols
The design of OMG! Kittens, as you might expect, is fairly benign, with a hazy, grassy meadow in the background and a game board full of kittens and kitten accoutrements with a jaunty, upbeat melody playing in the background.
The lower value symbols are of a kitty collar, a ball of string, and a pint of spilt milk, while the higher paying symbols are the kittens themselves; Tiger, Bubbles, and Mr Whiskers – each of whom pay 25x bet size for five of a kind with 5 mixed kitten symbols paying 12.5x bet size. There is one more kitten seen reaching into a goldfish bowl known as ‘Fishcat’ – this symbol only covers one square rather than the whole reel and acts as a scatter pay symbol which pays for any 3, 4, or 5 of a kind wherever they may appear on the reels with up to 25x bet size for 5 of a kind. The other symbol, which only appears on reel 5 is another which only appears as a full reel length symbol, the OMG! Free Spins symbol.
There is a multiplier of up to 100x which occasionally comes into play in the base game, and there is also a free spins round with some additional bonus rewards.
Fifth Reel Multiplier
In the base game if you manage to make 4 of a kind with any combination of kittens then it is possible that a kitten landing on the 5th reel could carry a multiplier of 2x, 3x, 5x, 10x, or even 100x to be applied to the entire win.
OMG! Free Spins
If you manage to make 4 of a kind with any combination of kittens you can trigger 5 free spins if the OMG! Free Spins scatter hits the 5th reel. Furthermore, depending on which kittens made up the 4 of a kind you will receive additional rewards when triggering the feature
- Any Tiger symbols will give add multipliers to your wins (1=2x, 2=3x, 3=5x, 4=10x)
- Any Bubbles symbols award extra free spins (1=5 extra, 2=10 extra, 3=20 extra, 4=45 extra)
- 1, 2, 3 or 4 Mr Whiskers symbols will give you 50x, 100x, 200x, or 400x your bet per line when triggering the feature.
Although you can get up to 50 free spins if you hit four Bubbles symbols to get in the feature, there is no way to retrigger free spins as the OMG! Free Spins symbol does not appear in the free spin bonus game. Any Mr Whiskers symbols you land during the free spins round may reward you with a bonus pay award – and if you manage to land a Mr Whiskers on reel 5 with a 2x, 3x, 5x, or 10x multiplier this will multiply the bonus pay award for that one symbol (the 100x multiplier does not appear in the free spins round). Finally, if your overall win during the free spins round is less than 10x your bet size then the prize will be rounded up to a 10x bet size win.
Our Thoughts on OMG! Kittens
OMG! Kittens is a quite simple game, with a simple design. It’s easy to understand, and benefits from some basic but reasonably fun features. It’s certainly not going to appeal to everyone with its unashamedly cute and schmaltzy theme, but you can’t argue with a slot which has already proven itself in a live environment, and there are definitely enough animal lovers out there who might be tempted to give this a whirl purely based on the theme.
With individual wins of up to 1000x the bet size possible there is plenty of scope for big wins, especially if you can hit that 100x multiplier with 5 of a kind or if you earn a good multiplier in the free spins.
