Big Cats Slots
Big Cats slots is a cat-themed slot game with 5 reels and 1,024 paylines. It has a free spins bonus round and low payouts. We've seen bigger payouts on other animal-themed slots.
The first row of symbols on the paytable is the Jack, Queen, and King that pay 5, 10, or 50 times your line bet, aka coins. The Ace is next and pays 10, 20, and 75 coins.
This leaves the four wild cats. The Mountain Lion is first and pays 15, 25, and 100 coins. The White Tiger pays 20, 40, and 150. The Tiger pays 25, 50, and 400 coins. This leaves the Lion who pays 50, 150, or 1,000 coins.
A second Lion symbol is stamped with the word "Wild." It only appears on the third, fourth, and fifth reels. While he's not awarded a value of his own, he does help form winning combinations.
The Claw Marks scatter pays 50x, 250x, or 1,000x your total bet depending on if it's on the reels three, four, or five times. It doesn't trigger any extra bonus feature though.
For our 10-spin test, we set the line bet at 50 cents ($25 per spin). Here's what we encountered with the 10 spins.
- 4th spin - $110
- 10th spin - $7.50
We didn't find ourselves landing winning combinations on the spins. In fact, the 20% hit rate was much lower than we typically experience. We tried another 50 spins to see if we could trigger the free spins bonus, but we never did.
The Free Spins Bonus Feature
The Tiger Free Spins symbol is the key to the free spins. You need at least five across the reels in order to win 8 free spins per line they appear on. The Free Spins symbols are stacked, so the more on the reels, the more free spins you win. It's possible to get up to win up to 96 free spins.
As is true of any slot game, your bet is the first step to playing for fun or real money. There's a fixed wager of 50 times your line bet. Line bets range from a penny to $2, leading to a $100 max bet.
Once you've made that decision, spin and autoplay are both on the right bottom of the reels. Big Cats slots is an easy game to play, but we were not blown away. The payouts we won were minimal in comparison to the bet. We also know this all comes down to luck. Will you do better?
