Do you remember Top Cat? The mischievous cartoon feline whose sole aim in life was to irritate Officer Dibble along with his mangy street cat crew Choo, Fancy-Fancy, Benny, Brains and Spook.
Blueprint Gaming has got hold of the rights to this Hanna Barbara classic and has put together a great slot game based around it. If you are looking for big cats, try the Jungle Spirit slot, by the way. We’re just saying, as the graphics are amazing, anyway, back to the tabbies. Top Cat is also a good ‘un.
Top Cat Slot Game Play
Blueprint Gaming has put a lot of effort into the graphics used in the Top Cat slot game, from the game background to the symbols in play. Just like the inner-city background image, the reels are filled with interesting graphics that fans of the original Top Cat show might recognise. The setting and symbol images make Top Cat slot gameplay a fun experience as the reels are spun, potentially leading to great payouts.
The Top Cat slot game has 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 paylines. Your reels are set in Manhattan against a backdrop of Top Cat’s infamous alley with the dustbin (his home) and his red phone box. It’s one of our favourite cartoon slots along with King Cashalot– we like that one because it has a huge jackpot!
Before spinning the reels of Top Cat, players will need to set the bet stake using the up and down arrows above and below the ‘Bet (£)’ to the left of the grid. Once the bet stake has been arranged, players can access new symbols across the grid of this Top Cat online slot using the spin button to the right of the grid. Symbols will then fill the 15-space grid, potentially landing in combinations of between 3 and 5 across a payline.
Your high-value symbols are Top Cat, Benny the Ball, Choo-Choo, Brain, Fancy-Fancy and Spook, while the usual playing cards J, Q, K & A make up your lower-paying symbols in the slot.
Top Cat is the game’s high roller, scooping you 400 coins for a combo of 5x. He’ll also appear stacked and can fill entire reels, so it makes for a nice money spinner. The Wild in Top Cat slot is the Fish Bones symbol, and it will substitute for all others on the reels to help you land winning combos.
Players that are wanting to learn more about the Top Cat slot RTP, symbols payouts and paylines can use the information button in the bottom-left corner. This can be accessed throughout Top Cat slot play and will remind players what they hope to land across the grid to access the Top Cat slot payouts.
Top Cat Game Features
Four cheeky little extras are set off randomly in the base game by seeing Top Cat on the blower, and they include:
Choo’s Piano Wilds
Random wilds are added to the reels after a piano falls on poor Choo’s head. Ouch!
Benny’s Colossal TVs
Benny will add a bunch of TVs to your reels that turn into random symbols – including prizes! Cheers, Benny!
Brain’s Water Wilds
Brains add a fire hydrant underneath each reel, turning a random one wild.
Spook’s Mice Is Nice
Some friendly mice land on your reels to mix up and move around the existing symbols.
The Master Plan Bonus
Now say ‘hi’ to the main bonus feature of the Top Cat slot game, The Master Plan.
Land 3x of the Bonus Scatters anywhere on reels 1, 3 or 5, and you’ll get to choose which of the five madcap Master Plan Bonuses you’ll receive from a chalkboard on a second screen. Here are the options:
Cash Picker Bonus
Choose from TC’s garbage bins to give instant wins and a possible win multiplier. Top Cat is the bin maestro, remember?
Another pick ’em game in Top Cat online, but this one takes place over two levels. Stage 2 is the Big Money Board, where the cash prizes are won.
Diner Free Spins
It’s unlimited Free Spins for you on a new set of reels set in a diner. You can collect increasing multipliers and Meal Ticket Scatters.
Dibble’s Free Spins
More Free Spins in Top Cat online but with a Wild Symbol that roams across the different reel positions to help you win the best possible combos.
Construction Site Free Spins
Collect the Top Cat stickers on top of the symbols. The more TCs you get, the more chance you’ll have of moving on to the next reels, where you’ll find more Free Spins up for grabs.
Fancy-Fancy’s Hot Dog Respins
What’s all this about then? The Hot Dog Re-spins is a separate mini-game in the Top Cat slot machine triggered by landing the Giant Hotdog on reel 5. Fancy Fancy and the others try to steal from the hot dog seller, and as the reels re-spin, the Giant Hotdog Wild moves left across the reels with each go. The game ends when the Wild falls off the screen. Laters hot dog.
And finally…. The Progressive Jackpot
As one of Blueprint Gaming’s Jackpot King series, there’s the chance to scoop the mighty progressive jackpot in the Top Cat slot machine. It’s triggered by landing 5 Jackpot King symbols after a spin, so keep your eyes peeled, Wombat Fans! You’ll collect crowns and then spin a wheel of fortune which could win you the progressive prize.
The Jackpot King feature in the Top cat slot displays the Royal, Regal and Jackpot King progressive jackpots above the playgrid. Progressive jackpot values continue to rise based on the money paid into the mechanics by fellow game players. These jackpots have a limit before which they must be won, limits that still result in potentially huge payouts!
If you like Top Cat, you should also give our Foxin Wins slot games a go. We’re just saying!
Top Cat slot has got more extras than we’ve had hot dinners, which is saying something – and not all of them make much sense. But we love the overall theme, and the base game bonuses come thick and fast – even if they only pay out small wins. A nice slot.
Wombat Score: 4/5
Top Cat and the Gang lose a point for not having the original soundtrack. The game has an RTP of 92.49%.
