ABOUT WILD CATS MULTILINE
Expanding reels, as we all know, are all the rage right now, with every man and his dog either signing a contract to license Big Time Gaming’s Megaways mechanism or attempting to design their own variant.
Red Tiger, on the other hand, has opted to do both. This once middling game producer has turned out some very great titles after signing up to use Megaways on their own games last year, including the recently released Mystery Reels Megaways. Of course, they had the enormous Laser Fruit slot in their back repertoire before that, with over 60,000,000 paylines. It’s no wonder, therefore, that their next move was to design their own expanding reels game, this time with a more modest 49 lines.
Wild Cats Multiline is a straightforward slot with little frills (aside from the expanding reels). It features a somewhat high volatility and a low-ish 2,000x top possible payoff. Regardless, it’s a nice-looking slot that’s worth a try if you’re searching for something unusual to play.
Symbols, Gameplay, and Pay Tables
Wild Cats Multiline offers the same dramatic, sunset-drenched backdrop as many other slots that have come before it, evoking the Serengeti. The card suites are the lower-value emblems in the game, while the cats themselves — leopards, panthers, tigers, and one lesser cat whose name escapes us – are the higher-value symbols. At 6x for 6 on a payline, the tiger is the most valuable symbol.
The lion is king here, and he symbolizes the Wilds symbol, which substitutes for all other symbols save the scatter and awards a massive 50x multiplier for six on a payline.
Features of Wild Cats Multiline
The number of rows per reel will increase from two to seven during the game, for a total of 49 paylines. Because there are no extra elements in the main game, the action is quite static outside of the reel extension.
Things start to get more exciting as you enter the Royal Spins Free Spins round. The quantity of free spins awarded is determined at random, but the more scatters you land, the more spins you will receive.
When a Wild Lion appears during the free spins round, it causes all occurrences of that symbol to be removed from the reels and replaced with a new one. You can get up to ten wilds on a single spin, which can result in 2,000x multipliers.
THE VERDICT OF THE SLOT BUZZ
Overall, Wild Cats Multiline is a rather straightforward slot with a sluggish base game and little to brag about in the free spins round, unless you strike a large number of wilds in a single play. The expanding reels mechanic is also being used elsewhere to much better effect. So we’re not too taken with this slot, though it may appeal to some high variance purists.
