An Asian novelty shop is the setting for Big Win Cat, a colourful slot with just three reels, three rows and five Paylines from industry giants Play’n GO. It’s inspired by the importance of cats to Asian culture. (They’re associated with luck in China, for example.) The grid has a frame of gilded bars and a palette that’s dominated by red and yellow.
How to play
With stakes starting at a very modest 5p a spin (rising to £100 a pop), Big Win Cat is a good choice for newer or more cautious gamers. As ever, play on any device you wish, mobile or not, since it’s fully optimised for enjoyment on the go.
Reels are the shop’s shelves, and showcase purses, flower-decorated fans, cat toys, pigs, turtles, goldfish, coins and collar bells. As usual, you need three similar symbols for a win, and here the animal-themed symbols are your higher payers.
The regular Autoplay and Spin functions are available, and you can obviously use the latter should you fancy setting the reels to turn without interruption for a preset number of whirls.
The frolicking feline, the Big Win Cat himself, serves as your Wild, doing its standard thing of replacing all other icons to help you form a winning combination. At the same time, it’s this game’s most rewarding symbol, paying out at 24x stake when you scoop the full three moggies on a single Payline.
Respin of Luck feature
Here, where you’re just missing a single matching symbol to fill a reel, you enjoy a free respin on the relevant reel while the other two stay fixed in place, providing you with a fresh opportunity to win.
Wheel of Multipliers
If you’re lucky enough to scoop the same symbol on all nine positions of the grid, you’re in line for the kitty to twirl the Wheel of Multipliers. This can end up in awarding you a multiplier as big as 10x on whatever you have won.
Unfortunately, there’s no chance to play a free spins round here, but hopefully, the other two perks will make up for that.
There’s no progressive jackpot in Big Win Cat. But, with the Wheel of Multipliers, maximum winnings of 800x stake are possible on every win.
Return to Player (RTP)
RTP or Return to Player in Big Win Cat is standard for an offering from this operator, hovering at around 96%. Variance-wise, it’s somewhere on the middle of the scale.
It’s true that Chinese cat slots have been done previously. But there is potential for some handsome payouts in Big Win Cat, especially if the multipliers go your way.
And while it moves along at a rapid trot, it’s a simple game to understand, making it a great one to play for novices or those who just feel like turning the reels without numerous complications.
You’ll also enjoy it if you’re a fan of Asian-themed games, and find it purr-fect if you have a particular penchant for three-reelers!
