What’s The Deal?
Fans of cats will be happy to hear that Snowborn Games and Microgaming have teamed up to bring us a release based on man’s second best friend – but with a hint of Scotland thrown in. This is another great Microgaming partnership with a boutique studio (the Golden Hook slot is another example).
Expect, free spins, wild multipliers and the Battle Bonus where collecting cat paws can dish you out with some cheeky wins of up to 10,000x you bet!
It’s time to spin with those furry dictators in the Cat Clans slot.
Graphics and Theme
A bunch of cats in mediaeval sporrans are the heroes of this slot, and the action is set in the green glens in the Highlands way back in the day.
Your reels spin on a wooden frame and a castle with turrets and flags sits in the background.
The graphics are cartoony and very tongue in cheek – they will put a smile on your chops. It’s a bright and colourful game too, up there with Tiki Beats so put your sunglasses on.
The premium paying reel icons in Cat Clans are the 4 cool cats; the magician with the mysterious potions, and the ginger cat Lord with the moustache, the warrior moggie done up with wode, and the archer cat with the jaunty green hat.
The bottle of milk, fishbones and the J, Q, K & A from the playing card deck, will make up your low paying symbols
Meanwhile, the Wild has flames coming out of it, and the Bonus icons are the Free Spins catapults!
Cat Clans Game Play
The Cat Clans slot comes with 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 pay lines, just shy of the 11 Enchanting Relics slot, another Microgaming collaboration. You can place your bets from 0.20 coins per spin, going up to a maximum of 25.00 mediaeval cat dubloons .
The volatility in this game is on the high side, Wombat fans, and there’s a maximum win that chimes in at a whopping 20,000x your stake.
The Cat Clans Bonus Features
Whenever a wild icon hits the Highland reels,, it will come with a win multiplier from between 1x and 5x. But even better, if you scoop a winning combo from more than one multiplier wild, the values will be multiplied together. Bonza wins ahoy!
Clan Battle Bonus
Peek to the left of the reels and you’ll see a golden treasure chest – to open this bounty you’ll need to collect Gold Paws in the reels. These can be attached to any of the high value symbols and will help to trigger off the Battle Bonus when the chest is full.
Set it off, and you’ll be given 5 Free Spins and during the round, each of the Clan cats will come a value from 10x and 10,000x your bet. Cracking!
The cat icon that hits the reels the most often will win the battle, and pay you out his prize. Feline groovy yet?
Cat-A-Pult Free Spins
Landing 3x or more of the scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5 and you’ll be awarded 3 Cat-A-Pult free goes.
Any wild symbols that land during the round will become sticky and the number of Free Spins will be reset back to 3. It’s the kind of re-spins streak feature that we’ve seen from Snowborn before.
It will also have a wild multiplier attached that will increase by x1 on each spin, going up up to x9.
Here at Wombat Towers, we think Cat Clans slot is a purrfect addition to the Microgaming and Snowborn portfolio!
The bonuses are clever and combine for some chunky wins, while the caber tossing felines is an inspired theme!
Not forgetting you can scoop 10,000x in the Battle Bonus on its own.
Treat yourselves and take it for a spin!
Wombat score: 5/5
