Popular Aussie online slots manufacturer, Lightning Box Games, is back with a Chinese astrology inspired slot called Astro Cat, and it’s got plenty to make our Touch Mobile Casino players meow about. For starters, it uses the Reelfecta pay structure, which offers you no less than 1,296 ways to win. Plus, you can trigger Mega Spins and win free spins galore along with locked wilds.
If you’ve already played Pixie Gold slot here at our mobile casino, you’ll be familiar with the Reelfecta system that gives Astro Cat slot its unusual appearance. While it’s a five-reel slot, the central Reelfecta reel is four columns wide, which makes it look as if it has eight reels. What’s so exciting about the Reelfecta reel is that it gives you the chance to create wins of up to sixteen symbols with every spin. Graphically, the slot game showcases the design team’s talents superbly. The reels sit within an extravagant red pagoda, which is situated in front of a calm lake containing wooden boats with bright red sails and a starlit sky with a glowing full moon.
The paytable symbols are also beautifully drawn and include lotus flowers, oriental dragons, waving cats, fireworks, jade frogs, paper fans, and koi.
Like most mobile slots, Astro Cat features a wild symbol, which is represented by the Waving Cat. It only appears on the third and fourth reels, but it has the potential to help you win by substituting for any other paytable symbol except the scatter. The scatter is the Firework, and five or more activate the Free Spins Bonus which features locked wilds.
During the bonus, two new symbols come into play – the +1 Wild Cat and Poison. At the beginning of every free game, each of the outer positions on the Reelfecta reel reveals either a Poison symbol or a +1 Wild Cat. The Cat awards one extra free spin (up to a maximum of twelve) and also cause the wild to lock into position. The Poison (which cannot appear during the first three free spins), however, ends the feature immediately and pays you two times your total bet. If luck is on your side and you manage to fill all twelve outer positions of the Reelfecta reel with +1 Wild Cat symbols, you receive one Mega Spin.
The Mega Spin turns the entire third reel wild; plus, if three or more Firework scatters appear, you’ll retrigger the Free Spins Bonus for even more chances to win big. The Gamble button, which is located at the bottom of the reel set on Astro Cat, gives you the option to try and double or quadruple your current win by correctly predicting the colour or suit of a face-down playing card.
In conclusion, the Astro Cat slot game is beautifully designed and plays just as well on smartphones and tablets as it does on desktops. The presence of the Reelfecta reel makes every spin you take a hugely exciting experience, and if you’re fortunate enough to gain one or more Mega Spins, you’ll be looking like the cat that got the cream!
