Available since June 2020, Laser Cats slot from Malta-based creator Swintt is played on an unusually small structure of three reels and three rows, with just nine Paylines. Reels are set against a background of a dark blue, while the design also incorporates laser-like special effects.
Overall, this slot’s look is rather stylised and simple, leading some to draw comparisons with 1990s video games. As the names suggest, the twin themes here are space and animals, offering a fresh take on the classic 3×3 slot.
Laser Cats slot is also part of the Lite series of games, optimised with simpler mechanics and aimed at quite specific markets.
How to play
The betting range in Laser Cats slot is from 0.05 to 25. Icons on the reels include cats in red, green, blue and pink, as well as various kitty accessories such as toys. There are nine symbols in all.
The pink kitty shells out at 100x line wager for three in a row; for the red, blue and green it’s 75x, 60x and 50x respectively. The toys payout at 40x for a trio. At the bottom of the table, a kitty litter tray and thread for the felines to play with shell out at just 25x and 10x respectively.
Meanwhile, the Autoplay function gives you up to 100 turns of the reels without interruption, allowing you to sit back and focus on enjoying the game.
Laser Cats Slot Special features
The bottle of milk is the Scatter in this game, and it doesn’t pay out in its own right. It does, however, add to the free spins accumulator, as described below.
Meanwhile, the Wild is the laser, and it does its usual thing of standing in for other symbols to help you form more winning combos.
This round works in the usual way, kicking in when you land a hat-trick of Scatters. And with every Scatter you land, you accumulate wager-free goes in the free spins meter. You can then play them all once you’ve triggered this bonus round. There is no limit to the number of free spins you can score.
Look forward to some hefty wins here, boosted by the multiplier reel explained below.
A multiplier is added at random to any of your twirls in the bonus round or base game, and this can reach 15x stake to give you some great wins.
While you won’t find a progressive jackpot in Laser Cats slot, the maximum payout is 375x stake.
Return to Player
We’ve previously mentioned that Return to Player or RTP in Swintt games can err on the low side, and that does seem to be the case here – it’s slightly below industry standard at 93.09%. You’ll find volatility somewhere in the middle of the range.
Laser Cats slot is likely to be a purr-fect match for you if you’re a fan of the more retro-leaning slots, less so if you’re less fond of the very simple games. However, this is generally a great release from this interesting developer. And, overall, it’s a decent play, so give it a go and tell us how you got on.
