Symbols and coefficients
There are 3 types of symbols involved in the slot: special, thematic and denominations of playing cards. The latter have the lowest odds: from $0.25 to 0.40 for 5 symbols with a minimum bet of $0.20. For combinations of thematic symbols, the payouts are higher:
- gnawed fish and a bottle of milk: $0.14 to $1;
- Scottish resistance cat: $0.30 to $2;
- wizard cat: $0.30 to $2;
- archer cat: from $0.40 to $2.50;
- cat-king: from $0.40 to 2.50.
Combinations are formed in a standard way – from left to right. Only one, the most expensive chain, is paid per line.
In the Cat Clans slot machine, special symbols drop out. How they work:
- Wild replaces any symbols on the playing field, except for the bonus ones. Combinations with it are also paid, bringing from $3 to 22.20. The symbol sticks to the reel and is equipped with a growing win multiplier up to x9. Landing a sign during free spins restarts the bonus spins.
- Scatter – the inscription Free Spins. Drops on the 1st, 3rd and 5th reels. Brings a payout of $0.30. When 3 symbols appear, 3 additional free spins start.
- Clan Battle Bonus is a sign of the golden paw. Appears next to the symbol of any cat. Having collected a collection of such pictures, a visitor to an online casino opens a prize round. As paws appear during the spins, the chest next to the playing field fills up. There is no indicator. It is impossible to determine exactly when the chest will open.
The bonus game starts randomly. During it, payments increase from x10 to x10,000 of the bet. After the end of the bonus spins, another 5 free spins with a cat symbol appear, which appeared on the reels more often than others.
When testing in the demo, wilds with multipliers fall out often. But it was not possible to knock out free spins or a bonus round for 100 spins. When buying 3 free spins for $1.80, the winnings were $2.50.
