A TV gameshow featuring a cast of cats is the backstory to Cats and Cash, a simple 5 reel, 15 payline video slot from Play ’N Go. Highlights here include a wild that doubles payouts when it forms part of a winning line and a pair of feature rounds. The Wheel Bonus offers awards of up to 5,000 times your bet with the Pick A Gift round paying up to 2,000 times your bet. Play on all devices from between 15p and £75 per spin.
There’s a glitzy look to the design here. The reels include a quartet of cat contestants. They’re joined by wads of cash and a diamond necklace. The best paying symbol is the stack of gold bars – land 5 of these on a payline and your reward will be 166.66 times your bet.
The gameshow host is the game’s wild and replaces all other symbols apart from the scatter. Land 5 of these on a payline and you’ll pocket 666.66 times your bet. When the wild makes up part of a winning combination with a standard symbol, that payout is doubled. The goldfish bowl is the scatter. This offers awards of up to 400 times your total bet. It doesn’t trigger the game’s features though. There are 2 of those:
- Pick-a-Gift Bonus feature – this round is triggered by landing 3 of the gift box symbol on a winning line adjacent reels. You’ll be offered a selection of 10 gift boxes. Choose 1 and you’ll win a prize of up to 2,000 times your bet.
- Wheel of Fortune Bonus feature – landing 3 Bonus symbols in the same payline from left to right triggers the second feature. It’s a classic spin the wheel bonus. Where the pointer lands determines the size of the prize awarded. Get lucky here and you could pocket a 5,000 times bet payout. If you land on a starred orange segment, you’ll win the coin amount shown as well as receiving a respin.
The medium variance Cats and Cats certainly won’t be winning any awards for innovation. It’s a solid enough performer though. There’s a classy feel to the design and the pair of bonus features deliver some decent winning opportunities. Get lucky there and these felines could leave you purring – there’s a cool 12,362 times your bet to be won if you get really lucky! If you like cats, I highly recommend you try NetEnt’s Copy Cats or Microgaming’s Exotic Cats.
