Cats Royal Slot Review
Lions, tigers, panthers, and jaguars - these creatures are about as far away as you can get from the tabby cats of the world yet they all have a common ancestor. Sometimes, you have to wonder how we managed to go from the lean, mean fighting-machines of our past to the domesticated house pets who lick our faces with the same tongue they use to clean their butts. I’ve always loved cats, big or small, lion or tabby - I don’t discriminate. Even so, I find it a little bit sad that our fluffy feline friends have lost the inherent wildness of the Savanna and the agility of the Amazon Jungle. That being said, I wouldn’t relish a scratch from a paw bigger than my own head - talk about ouch.
Cats Royal is a 5-reel, 20-payline video slot powered by software from EGT Interactive. If Persians, Maine Coons, and Siamese cats are the aristocracy of the cat world, the big cats featured in this slot are the gods. Cats Royal is packed full of feline-themed symbols including a big cat paw as the Wild, with a lion, a tiger, a leopard, a panther and a puma acting as the main characters of this slot. Other symbols include a scatter, branded with the words ‘Cats Royal,’ and other standard playing cards from Queen to Ace. EGT controls are pretty simple, but I’m worried that a big cat might come and gobble me up if I don’t go through them quickly - we don’t want to take any chances. You can find all of the controls at the bottom of the reels, ranging from left to right. On your far left is the display showing your coin balance, as well as the sound toggle, the info button, and Auto Play. In the middle of the screen, you’ll find the bets, ranging from 20 to 400. On the far right, you’ll find your total wins, as well as the Gamble Feature which is triggered when you land a win.
Cats Royal has some pretty exotic features including a Wild Multiply. Although it can only land on the 5th reel, it replaces all other basic symbols and can increase the random multiplier by x20. The Scatter feature, only available on reels 2, 3 and 4, is also pretty nifty. When three land anywhere on the reels, you’ll get a payout of 2x your total bet. It will then trigger a round of Free Spins, further increasing your chances of a win.
Cats Royal offers four progressive jackpots, one for each card suit. This feature can be triggered at random, after any regular spin. It’s pretty straightforward - you’ll be taken to a bonus round where you’ll have to choose three cards from a deck of 12. As soon as you guess three from the same suit, you’ll win accordingly. Each suit offers a different jackpot, so choose carefully.
I’m not going to try and fool you here, this slot gives a royal performance. EGT haven’t skimped on anything - not the sharp graphics, as sharp as the teeth on the symbols, nor the soundtrack - with sound bites frighteningly similar to the actual noises you’d expect to hear coming out of the mouths of big cats. This game is fit for the king of the jungle, performing well on every device I tried it on.
EGT Interactive know how to build a good game, that’s no secret. However, I would say that they’ve outdone themselves with Cats Royal. This game is indeed fit for the king of the jungle - there’s no doubt about that. So scoop up your fluffy feline friend and settle in for a night with his, admittedly scarier, cousins.
