EXOTIC CATS SLOT: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW
By Microgaming’s own standards, 2018 has hardly been a banner year for slot launches. It’s been a mixed bag — we enjoyed Fortunium and Playboy™ Gold here at The Slot Buzz, but we’ll pass on Wild Scarabs. In other cases, MG has enlisted the help of third-party developers such as Just for the Win and Rabcat to create games in their name.
Exotic Cats is their next release, and it’s a fairly simple game with only one base game feature, Wild Reels, which also occurs in the bonus round. However, it is a 243-ways-to-win slot, which provides it a slight advantage.
And in terms of winning potential, with up to 3,500x up for grabs in a single spin, that’s not to be sneered at.
Let’s learn more…
Setup for the Exotic Cats Game
Exotic Cats is a five-reel, three-row video slot with 243 ways to win. Prior to the game’s release, MG has not announced the RTP, but as soon as we learn more, we will, of course, update this page. Exotic Cats offers a top payoff of 3,500x and can be played for C$0.15 to C$15 per spin.
This is a rather simple slot in terms of design, with a dark jungle background for the reels and some great feline drawings for the symbols.
Symbols for Exotic Cats in Video Games
Payable Exotic Cats
The card symbols, spades, diamonds, hearts, and clubs, as well as a female figure and a pawprint symbol, are the lesser value symbols on the reels. The cats themselves – the lion, tiger, panther, leopard, and cougar – are the luxury icons.
- The lion is the highest paying symbol on the reels, earning 10x for five on a payline.
- Look out for the Exotic Cats logo, which substitutes for all symbols save the scatter and pays 14x for five on a payline.
- The coins are the scatter sign.
In the Exotic Cats slot, there are two things to keep an eye out for.
Each premium value symbol (exotic cat) is depicted at the top of one reel in the Vertical Wilds feature. If that symbol appears on its own reel, it transforms into a Wild Reel.
Reel 1 represents the Lion, Reel 2 represents the Tiger, Reel 3 represents the Panther, Reel 4 represents the Leopard, and Reel 5 represents the Cougar. If you place each cat on its respective reel, the entire board will go WILD!
The maximum payout is 3,564x.
Free Spins Feature – Get 10 free spins by landing three or more of the coin scatters anywhere on the reels. You’ll get additional 5 free spins if you land three or more during the bonus round.
Vertical Wilds, just like in the regular game, apply throughout the free spins phase, giving you additional opportunities to land entirely wild reels and maybe a fully wild screen!
That’s all there is to it!
Exotic Cats isn’t going to go down in history as an all-time classic, but it’s also not a horrible little slot. The Vertical Wilds feature appears frequently, and if you can trigger the free spins round, you’ll have an opportunity to win big. You may love this one for a while, but it will quickly get tedious, and it will be time to move on.
