Big Win Cat is a three reel, five payline slot from Play ‘N Go that has an Asian feel and set in an Asian novelty shop. Big Win Cat game engine benefits from a re-spin feature where players have a second chance to win.
Players can also fill the reels with the same icon for a chance of considerable multipliers to win up to 800 times their bet stake. Plus, the same symbol is almost stacked on two reels – players then get a re-spin with the other reel respinning to give them another chance to win.
Cats bring much fortune in Chinese culture. The “good luck” cat with its movable swinging paw can be observed in windows of nearly Chinese restaurant across the world. In several parts of China, cats are even said to be telepathic and be able to perceive spirits whom us mere mortals cannot see.
As mentioned, Big Win Cat is based in an Asian novelty shop, the shelves themselves are the reels, and together they display collar bells, gold coins, cat toys, little bags, pigs, flowery fans, gleeful goldfish and turtles. The Big Win Cat is the game’s wild icon and replaces for all symbols – plus, it also plays the role of the most lucrative icon giving players x24 their bet stake for three across a payline.
Players will notice that getting three-of-a-kind of anything is what they will need to win some prizes. The lower-limit icons are the Chinese coins, then the cat’s bells pay double the coin amount, whilst the lucky purses pay x1 a players bet. The Chinese fans pay x1.2, whilst the mallets pay x1.4.
The higher-paying icons are all animal-themed and look pleasant enough. Three tortoises pay x3 a players bet stake, whilst three piggies bestow x4. Three goldfish will award x5. The wild symbol is the cat herself. The wild cat icon will meow as players spin her, but she will also replace all other icons in the game. Players who land three kitties on a win line will win a whopping x160 total stake cash prize.
Big Win Cat comes with a Respin of Luck feature where it is played when the same icon is almost stacked on any two reels – players will then get one free lucky re-spin on the remaining reel. The symbols from the two reels remain in place during the re-spin to give them another chance of winning.
If players manage to pack all three reels with the same icon, they will activate the Wheel of Multipliers round – this can lead to a multiplier of x10 being applied to each winning! Resulting in maximum wins of 800 times a players stake on each spin.
Big Win Cat is a simplistic video slot in reality yet is fast-paced – variance wise it’s in the middle of the road however does have the potential for big payouts if the multipliers are in a punters favour. If players like Asian themed slots, this is worth a punt.
