Pretty Kitty is 5 reel, 243 ways to win video slot from software giants Microgaming. Playable on all devices from 30p to £75 per spin, the game adds a touch of sophistication to the commonly found cat themed genre as it gives off an air of class and wealth.

With a purple, velvet backdrop, this luxurious looking video slot oozes class – symbols on the reels include cats with gemstone encrusted collars as well as a selection of precious stones as the lower value symbols. There are 5 cats which all appear as stacked in the base game.

If 1 of the cats lands stacked on reel 1, all other instances of that cat will expand to give you more stacked reels – this is known as the Expanding Symbols feature. This also applies in the Free Spins feature but is much more lucrative.

The Free Spins feature is triggered when you get 3 or more diamond collars on a pillow symbols anywhere in view – you will begin with 15 free spins. You can also get 3 or more scatter symbols during the feature to reward you with a total of 30 free spins.

Look out for any full symbol stack on reel 1 during the feature as it will expand all matching high value symbols and wilds on the other reels – all cats appear stacked on reel 1 whilst the white cat appears stacked on all reels. This can lead to very big wins of 933 times your bet on every single free spin!

I found Pretty Kitty to be a high variance game with the bigger wins coming in the free spins feature – however, you can also win big in the base game. More importantly, you need to be patient stroking these cats as big wins will be few and far between – just play cautiously till you land that big win.

Microgaming has produced a superb game here which is sure to match up to IGT’s Cats. If you like high variance offerings, Microgaming has plenty of offer with Thunderstruck II and Immortal Romance the most popular 2.
