Cats is one of the legendary slots to be developed by IGT. Hugely popular in the land-based casino world, and equally so in the online casino world, this was one of the first IGT developed slots to contain the split symbols feature. Cats’ theme doesn’t need any introduction whatsoever, seeing as the symbols on this slot tell you all you need to know about it. The slot machine game contains a 5-reel, 30-line structure, and unusually for IGT slots, you can adjust those paylines as you see fit. Coin values range from a penny up to a tenner, and that will ultimately see you wagering anything from 1p per line per spin, up to £300 per spin. A good run on this slot machine game can see you land 5 Cats logos on a line, and win up to 10,000 coins via the game’s non-progressive jackpot as a result.
Players will find that the Cats logo doubles up as a wild symbol, as well as the best-paying icon in the game. Wild symbols can substitute for all other symbols, save for paw-print icons. When substituting for cat symbols, wilds can double the value of all winning combinations in which they appear.
One of the main features of this slot is the split symbol bonus. Cat symbols which have two felines on them count as double symbols, and with these, it is therefore possible to bag wins with ten-of-a-kind combinations.
Pawprint symbols act as scatter icons. Players need to land 5 or 6 paw prints on the second, third, and fourth reels to trigger a free spins bonus. Note that paw prints (much like cat symbols) can also appear split.
Players will land an instant cash prize of 2x their total bet for 4 print symbols, whilst 5 or 6 paw print symbols will see players win 5 or 10 free spins, respectively. The free spins bonus itself is standard, and nothing special occurs within it.
Cats continues to be one of the flagship slot machine games for IGT, and that is saying something considering the age of this slot. Most players should find Cats a rather appealing title to play.
