The Wombat says: Bored of the usual slot machine games? Then you need to give Astro Cat slot a try. This Wombat’s not usually a fan of moggies, they use to chase us back in the Bush and their claws are very sharp on a wombat bottom… However this Oriental Astro Cat will give you 1296 ways to win, so it’s time to start loving your feline friends. It’s from Lightning Box Games, those nice people behind the Miss Midas slot game and a whole heap of others.
You know those gold cats with the one paw that never stops moving? Well, this guy is one of them – and according to traditional Chinese custom, he’s a symbol of wealth, luck and prosperity. So as far as we’re concerned, he’s a keeper. FYI: Astro Cat uses the ‘Reelfecta’ system, where two 2×3 reels sit next to a 16 position grid reel in the centre. It’s a bit complicated but basically it plays like a 5×3 reel game like Octopays.
Anyway, we like a slightly different lay-out. It keeps the brain functioning! Try the Gods of Giza slot, for example, which has a 4×4 grid with 20 pay-lines. Unusual!
Astro Cats Slot Game Play
Traditional Asian totems make up your symbols on the reels; Koi carp, ferocious dragons, Chinese fans, bonsai trees, firecrackers and lucky frogs – along with the A,K,Q,J and 9. The colourful Chinese dragon will pay out 250 coins for 5 of a kind, the frog at 150, then the carp 100, while bonsai tree and fans will win 75 coins. As always, your BIG prizes will come from collecting scatter symbols – the fire crackers – which appear in the grid inside the middle reels. The firecracker Scatters will also trigger the free spins bonus game
For the Wilds look out for the Lucky Cat. He’ll have the word ‘wild’ written on him (obviously). He will substitute for all the symbols – except for the Scatters – to create more wins. He also does a little dance and a wave when you scoop a win, which made us LOL, but will only appear on reels 3 and 4…
Fireworks Free Spins
Land 9, 10, 11 or 12 fireworks Scatter symbols to trigger 12 free spins! Plus during the Free Spins you get the chance to trigger a Mega Spin. But how? The wilds will appear clockwise around the grid of the middle reels, you need to get 12 of these in place, without finding a bottle of poison. And if you do, it’s time for the Mega Spin.
The 4 reels in the middle of your screen become turn a single bloody massive reel – featuring a great big giant Lucky Cat. The mega spin turns all the middle columns wild, thus giving you the potential to win big. This is also how you can achieve the 1,296 ways to win. This wombat was pretty wowed…
Mobile Astro Slot
Astro Cat is no slouch- this moggie is mobile and has powered up his slot game for phones and tablets, so that you can play it where you like!
This new way of playing on the ‘Reelfecta’ might sound a bit weird so we’ll break it down for you again: It’s made up of 8 reels, with reels 1, 2, 7 and 8 each having 3 rows of symbols, and the middle 4 reels all having 4 rows of symbols. These middle 4 reels are separate. Astro Cat slot’s innovative layout means more chances to win, so give at a go!
