Cats Slot Review, RTP & Free Play

Cats Review

Here we have another IGT classic slot that has come right out of the African Savannah. Cats is a firesome entry that uses the sort of predators you’d expect to find in the local zoo as the premise for this exciting title. As the name suggests, this game is all things cats, from the symbols to the layouts and everything in between. The setting is a beautiful evening on the savannah and the sun sets in the background of this exquisite game.

Looks & Feel:

If you are interested in aesthetics, IGT has done their utmost to deliver a game that looks as good as it performs and even the illustrations of our feline friends (if you dare call them friends) are completed with such intricacy. This slot game falls under the instant play category, meaning that you get to enjoy it in all its glory from your browser of choice, regardless of whether you use a PC or Mac.

Cats is a 5-reel slot that contains a total of 30 paylines that are spread across 3 rows. There are tons of different symbols on cats and these range from big game icons like a tiger, a panther, a leopard, a lion and a lioness. The lower value symbols for this game are comprised of a J, Q, K and A.

The bonus symbol for this game is a red paw print. This activates the main feature in the game which we will go into more detail regarding below. The wild icon for Cats is the games’ logo.

Bonus Features:

Free Spins:

To activate the free spins round for Cats, players need to land on at least 5 of the paw print icons. This can be anywhere in view on the middle 3 reels and this will award players with a total of 5 free spins. This isn’t a lot when you consider how difficult landing that many symbols is but if you manage to land all 6 of the icons you will receive 10 for your efforts. During the free spin round the reels are optimised to help players win more in cash prizes.

Split Symbols:

Even though this might not seem like an actual bonus feature for this game, it is a welcomed addition. Each of the high value symbols has a chance to appear doubled on the icon. The icons that feature 2 of the same icons count for double which makes it easier to form winning combos. It also makes it so that you can win up to 10 of each icon which would incur a massive payout. Any time that you land the games’ wild icon to form a winning combo, this gets treated as a double symbol.

Cats RTP %:

Cats has an RTP % of 94% which isn’t the best that we’ve seen by any stretch and it won’t make it into the top 10. However, there are worst paying out slots out there. So, there is that to consider.


If you are on the lookout for a slot game that covers all the basics, Cats is the way to go. The game has great illustrations and nice animations with feral sound effects that set the mood. It might look a bit dated at this point and there are a lot of new slots that use much more recent technology to power the games. One thing we like about Cats is that it doesn’t over encumber itself with too many bonus features and the features it does have are reasonable enough.
