Playson Claws vs Paws Slot Review and Free Play

Claws vs Paws: Demo

Cats and dogs play cops and robbers in Claws vs Paws, a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot from Playson. There are plenty of goodies on offer in this cheeky crime caper including base game re-spins and 3 free spin rounds with sliding or sticky wilds or multipliers of up to 5x. Play on your computer, tablet or mobile from between 20p and £100 per spin.

The felines are trying to make off with the dog’s loot by staging a bank heist in this animal yarn. On the reels you’ll see lower value playing cards plus keys, a copper’s helmet and a juicy bone. The top standard symbol is the Claws vs Paws logo which pays up to 25 times bet per payline.

There’s also a wild, the diamond, which offers awards of up to 30 times bet per payline. Juicing up the base game are a trio of extras which can land at random:

  • Big Win Hacking feature – the animated cat appears and hacks the reels, transforming symbols so a new winning combination is created.
  • Winning Streak Re-spins feature – you’ll receive 2, 3 or 4 re-spins with each of them guaranteed to deliver a winning combo.
  • Top Symbol Re-spins feature – 3 re-spins are awarded here with the reels dominated by higher value symbols.

Land 2 standard scatters plus a bronze, silver or gold scatter and you’ll activate 1 of the 3 free spin rounds:

Sliding Wild Free Spins feature – this is triggered if the third scatter is the bronze. Up to 3 sliding wilds are added on every free spin. They drop down the reels 1 position at a time with each free spin which continue until all the sliding wilds have dropped from the screen.

Progressive Multiplier Free Spins feature – this becomes active with 2 standard scatters plus the silver scatter. Winning spins are boosted by a random multiplier of between 1x and 5x. On reel 5, you’ll see Decryptor and alarm symbols. The Decryptor increases the multiplier by 1. The alarm resets it. The free spins continue until you land 3 alarms.

Sticky Wild Free Spins feature – the gold scatter plus 2 standard scatters opens this round where 10 free spins are awarded. Sticky wilds are added on each of them. Look out for the dog who can remove them though.

If you land 2 scatters and there’s a 3rd just off the main reel set, you could benefit from a nudge which triggers the bonus. You’ll also see tokens appear at random while you spin. Collect these to open up some achievement extras. Spin the wheel to win cash prizes or trigger 1 of the free spin rounds.

This slapstick, criminal caper is an entertaining one. The cartoon design is well put together and there’s plenty of variety from the features. The variance here is in the medium to high range. Yes, it’s a supremely silly game but the good selection of extras make Claws vs Paws an enjoyable one nonetheless. I suggest you take a look at Playson’s other great titles with Eastern Delights and Legend of Cleopatra 2 of my favourites.
