Astro Cat is a zany video slot machine and one which has been created by Lightning Box Games. This slot machine offers up a one of a kind reel structure, with a terrific 1,296 paylines spread over the slot’s reels. As for the reels, themselves, they are part of a Reelfecta structure, which means that the third reel of the five contains 4 separate rows of 4 symbols. It’s all very complicated stuff, but the paytable will help you out no end in trying to get to grips with that. Astro Cat’s wagering range allows players to choose basic bets which range from 50p per spin, up to £250 per spin but don’t expect any leeway in the number of lines you get to play with. Prizes are capped at 500 coins in this non-progressive slot.
Players will note that the titular Astro Cat is the wild symbol in this slot. When she appears, she can substitute for all other icons in the game, except for the bonus symbol. Astro Cat symbols can only appear on the third and fourth reels of the slot, which is disappointing.
Scatter icons take the shape of the firework symbol. When these symbols appear 5, 6, 7, or 8 times in any positions on the reels, players will pocket wins worth 1x, 5x, 10x, or 25x their total bet. Land them 9 to 12 times to win up to 500x your total bet, which is the non-progressive jackpot.
Players can also enjoy a free spin feature in this slot when they land 5 or more scatters on the reels. In this bonus, locked wilds will play their part of the course of 12 free games. Locked wild cats can offer mega spins, whilst the Reelfecta feature can see you bag multipliers worth up to 16x the normal rate of pay.
Once you get to grips with the overly fiddly Reelfecta system, the rest of Astro Cat is plain sailing. Decent cash prizes, fair wagers and a full flurry of paylines make this slot at least worth a peek.
