Cats and Ancient Asian artefacts are so popular amongst online slot games, that it’s surprising they are not combined more often.
This is something that Play’n Go is clearly attempting to fix with their newest release, the retro feeling Big Win Cat.
A three-reel slot trying to find success in a five-reel world, Big Win Cat has the feel of an old school slot, while the graphics and features are as modern as anything else you’re likely to find.
About the slot
With three-reels and five fixed paylines, there’s a lot of gold used within the design here, including around the reels in a frame, complemented by a pile of gold coins that sit atop the reels.
The background is a Chinese curiosity shop of sorts, with lanterns, flowers, and trinkets just about visible in the hazy design.
Symbols on the reels include a Koi Carp, pigs, turtles, tice shakers, fans, bells, coins, and money pouches, with not a filler symbol to be seen, everything is on theme here, and it works perfectly.
The wild symbol is the smiling white cat, which will substitute for all other symbols to help with winning combinations.
As with most three-reel slots, there are less features here than with the five-reel varieties, but that isn’t to say there’s nothing to get excited about.
Two fully stacked reels will lead to a re-spin (wilds can count towards the stack here) which sees the two reels stick in place, while matching symbols in all nine positions on the reels leads to a Bonus Wheel round where the wheel will spin to reveal which multiplier (up to 10x) will be added to your win.
A simple, yet effective slot which is very different from Play’n Go’s normal output, Big Win cat is a charming little game.
