Theme of The Game
Cats and Cash, in the 2018 version, is an updated version of an older slot machine from Play’n GO. The developer kept many of the things that made the original an interesting mobile slot machine, but improved other areas as well. The theme remains the same one, involving cat characters that are playing at a casino. You have various elegant lady cats, cat players, cat dealers, but there are also some images which show things like gift boxes, fish aquariums, Bonus Wheels, gold bars or diamond necklaces.
The graphics style is cartoon-like, but very well done and there are enough details in all symbols used. Not quite sure if the original needed a refresh already, but the result is an improved mobile slot machine, so I’m not going to complain.
As its large number of slot machines will attest, Play’n Go has been around this particular industry for a long time. They were around in 1997, which should give you an idea of how much experience they’ve gotten over the years. It’s a Swedish company, yet another one that does very well in this industry.
They offer slot mobile machines which are translated in 30 languages and which can be played on all devices, thanks to their use of HTML5 technology.
How To Play It
All aspects of the wager system can be modified, from settings which are placed in the bottom area. You get the Coin Value for example, which starts at $0.01 and can be increased up to $1. The number of coins is also relevant, as it goes from 1 to 5. Finally, you have 1 to 15 lines that can be activated. The full betting range for a game like this is $0.01 to $75.
5×3 reels are available in Cats and Cash, and there are a total of 15 lines present on them. It’s quite easy to use, as all your options are available at the bottom of the screen.
An impressive special feature from Cats and Cash will be the one delivering the ultimate win that the game is capable of. Activated via Bonus Wheel symbols that need to appear on a win line, forming a combo like any other symbol, the feature gives you a spin of a wheel that holds prizes as big as 5,000x the line bet. You can even get respins of the wheel, if you end up on one of the orange segments of the wheel.
The second bonus feature is activated in the same way, just with a different icon being responsible for it. It’s a Gift Box, which you need to form a combo of 3+ symbols. The Pick-a-Gift feature that comes after that will get you paid up to 2,000x the line bet.
The third feature symbol in play is a scatter, showing a gold fish doing flips in the air, jumping from a small aquarium. It’s a symbol that’s used only to trigger big prizes for you, as high as 400x the bet even.
Finally, the symbol that I found most impressive is the regular wild. A substitute that has a 2x multiplier to use on wins, it can also deliver the biggest rewards of the slot, paying 10,000x for a full Wild combo.
The wild is clearly the winner, the one that can offer you the most. Its 10,000x jackpot will give you up to $50,000 cash.
Cats and Cash has big potential, multiple fun features that pay well, and cartoon-style graphics that are well thought out.
