Let the Game Begin
Cats and Cash is designed to look like a regular game show studio, with a massive stage supporting the reels under the spotlights at the centre. The host and hostess of the game are obviously cats, dressed in fine clothes and ready to help you figuring out the basic rules of the game.
The command bar under the reels is quite standard but blends nicely with the rest of the elements on the screen. Overall, Cats and Cash is clearly betting on humour and an original theme to draw players in – and it worked quite well on us.
In It to Win It
Cats and Cash is your typical 5-reel slot game, with 15 fixed paylines to bet on. Use the command buttons under the reels to choose the coin value for your next wager, which allows you to bet from 0.15 to 75 credits at every turn. Whether you choose the standard mode or autoplay mode, remember that Cats and Cash does not feature any gamble game to help you double your earnings, unlike in other Play’n Go creations.
The medium variance of the game gives players good chances to win big at any time on the reels. The paytable itself contains different original icons, from cat characters to banknotes and gold bars, with a decent top prize equivalent to 2500 times the value of your line bet.
Spin the Bonus Wheel
Cats and Cash is very generous when it comes to bonus symbols, starting with the game show host symbol that plays the part of the wild card. Not only can he replace the basic symbols during the game but you can also score up to x10,000 with long wild combinations. The fish tank, on the other hand, is a special treat that works as a scatter. Two or more of them anywhere on the reels award extra prizes, going up to 400 times your total bet.
Finally, Cats and Cash features two different bonus games. Score 3 presents to play a pick-and-win game for extra prizes, or line up 3 wheels to spin the wheel of fortune and uncover big wins going up to x5000, if luck is on your side.
Fun on and Around the Reels
Cats and Cash is an original slot game, especially when it comes to its universe. Putting cats in a virtual game show might be one of the quirkiest yet most inventive ideas from Play’n Go so far, and we really enjoyed it. Otherwise, the relatively low RTP of the game made it a little tougher to score wins in the base game, but nothing too alarming after all.
The many bonus features available in Cats and Cash are clearly a redeeming factor, so do whatever it takes to spin the bonus wheel as often as you can. Jolly Roger, also from Play’n Go, is based on virtually the same gameplay and bonus system, so you might want to check this other slot game out as well, when you have the time.
