Cats Online Slot by IGT
Cats is a slot with five reels and 30 paylines developed by IGT. During the gameplay, single or double regular symbols, the Wild and the Scatter come up on the game screen. The bonus features include free spins and instant payouts. Five Wilds pay the maximum reward of 300,000 credits.
Principles of the game
Initially, you get 1,000 credits in your account for placing line bets and spinning the reels. These are displayed in the Balance window.
Adjust your bet per line in the Line Bet window using the "-" and "+" buttons. The minimum line bet is 1 credit and the maximum one is 100. This parameter both affects your total bet per spin and the payout for winning combos.
You can modify the number of active paylines in the Lines section using the "-" and "+" buttons. You can play 30 lines in total. The more paylines are activated, the higher the chances of getting a reward for combos you have. Lines — is another parameter that affects your total bet.
Total Bet is displayed in the same-named section on the control panel. It is the cost of one reel spin. You can calculate it by multiplying your line bet by the number of paylines. This parameter also affects the reward in one of the bonus rounds.
The prize is awarded for the identical symbols which line up along one active line and on adjacent reels. Combos are formed from left to right, so one of the symbols has to land on the first reel. Since several symbols are doubled you can land two of these symbols to win if one of them is double. The Scatter symbol also does not act according to the main rules of calculation. You need to land at least four symbols on the second, third and fourth reels to get a reward.
You can activate the reels both in the regular and automatic modes. In the former case, just click the Spin button. After a spin all the winnings from paylines will be added up, displayed in the Win window and credited to your account. In the latter case, you can use the Auto Spin feature. Click the same-named button to open the list with the available numbers of autospins. Launch the autospin session after selecting the desired number. In both cases, your line bet and the number of paylines need to be set before the spins. Otherwise, they will be determined by default.
Symbols and multipliers of Cats
Two symbols win you special bonuses — a Wild and a Scatter. Click the Pays button to open the paytable with the description of symbols.
The logo of this slot is the Wild symbol. Once it comes up along a line it replaces missing symbols to complete a combination. The only exception is the Scatter symbol. The Wild can replace two animal-themed symbols at once. For example, if double tiger is on the first reel and the Wild picture is on the second one you get the payout for four tigers. If the Wild symbol comes up on the first reel and there is no higher-paying combination along the payline you will get a payout in credits. Three, four and five Wild logos along a payline win you:
- 3 logos — 300 times your line bet
- 4 logos — 1,000 times
- 5 logos — 10,000 times
The picture of the paw print is the Scatter. This picture only comes up on the second, third and fourth reels and wins you free spins or payouts based on the total bet. Everything depends on the number of symbols.
- 4 paw prints — you get two times your bet
- 5 paw prints — 5 free spins
- 6 paw prints — 10 free spins
Both single and double symbols of animals come up on the reels. As a result, a combination can include three–ten symbols.
- A panther — 10, 30, 100, 200, 300, 500, 1,000 and 2,500 times your line bet
- A lion — 10, 30, 100, 200, 300, 500, 800 and 1,000
- A tiger and a leopard — 10, 25, 100, 200, 300, 500, 800 and 1,000
- A lioness — 10, 25, 100, 150, 200, 500, 800 and 1,000
The single symbols are the playing cards. Three, four or five of these icons create winning combinations. Ace pays 8, 20 and 200 times your line bet and King, Queen and Jack — 5, 15 and 100.
You get bonuses for at least four Scatters. The positions of the symbols with paw prints (on the second, third or the fourth reel) doesn't matter.
You get an instant payout of two times your bet for four Scatters. The higher the number in the Total Bet window, the greater your prize will be. By collecting five or six symbols you win 5 or 10 free spins. You do not pay credits for free spins. You play this round with the line bet and the number of lines set for the spin that activated free spins.
The Wild symbol replaces almost every symbol in the Cats slot. You cannot win extra free spins during the bonus rounds because Scatters do not come up on the reels. Once this round is over the prizes are added up and credited to your account and you go back to the main game.
