The power of cats over the hearts, souls, and minds of Internet users is becoming stronger every day. Every day we stumble upon a collection of photos with cute cats in social networks, we are haunted by videos with funny kittens on YouTube. And we humbly spend 15–20 minutes to view these cute photos, even if we need to do an important work!
And now, these furry swindlers have captured even online casinos. There are no major software developers who would not introduce one or more video slots dedicated to cats. In particular, PlayTech had already several of those in stock, and the other day it presented another novelty of this kind. We are talking about the Cat in Vegas slot, which we consider in this review.
By the way, we are not quite sure, but the main character of the slot is very similar to the character from the cult film Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
Cat in Vegas is a 5-reel slot with twenty paylines. The rules allow you to choose 1-20 active lines for the game. You can bet on each line from one cent to one hundred dollars, which means the maximum bet of two thousand dollars per spin. There are ordinary pictures, special characters and Bonus games of several types. All of them are discussed in detail below.
Most payments are done for combinations of several images of the same type. Identical elements should line up on the active band starting at the leftmost column. Winnings are awarded only for the longest sequence on the line. At the same time, in one round, several paid chains are allowed.
To calculate winnings, the program multiplies the bet made on the line by the coefficient indicated for the resulting combination in the paytable. The multipliers range from x4 to x10,000. There is no doubling round in the game, so the money won immediately ends up at the main account.
Cat in Vegas has a theoretical return to player (RTP) of 92%.
The slot is dedicated to the adventures of the red cat Felix in Las Vegas, where the cat breaks off to the fullest. Accordingly, you see a cat with casino chips on the reels, a fan of dollars, and even in a pool with a cocktail in its paw. In addition, the denominations of playing cards are used as basic casinos, as if they are made of colored neon lamps.
The game features several special characters. These are Wild, Scatter (The King Show logo) and two bonus pictures (Bonus on the screen of the three-reel slot machine and the Wheel of Fortune). Their features are:
- Wild is extremely attractive to users. This symbol promises payment in itself. In this case, payments are calculated at very high rates. Moreover, Wild is able to replace other images forming a winning combination. But Wild cannot replace other special characters.
- Scatter appears on the second, fourth and fifth reels. When it is simultaneously at all these columns (regardless of position), the player gets twenty Free Spins. In these Free Spins, the bet remains the same at the expense of the casino. And Wild appearing on the screen stays in place until the end of the draw. In Free Spins, up to five sticky Wilds may appear. Bonus games do not run during the Free Spin session.
- The Wheel of Fortune appears only on the third reel of the slot. The Wheel of Fortune appearance means the beginning of a Bonus game in the Cat in Vegas slot and is called Wheel of Luck.
- The King Show logo may appear on the first, third and fifth reels. The appearance of the symbol in these three columns immediately begins the Vegas Slots round.
Bonus game rules:
- Wheel of fortune. On the main screen, a wheel of fortune starts with sectors in which multipliers are indicated. The multiples and the total bet per spin determine the prize payout.
- Vegas Slots is a game of slots in Las Vegas style with payouts of various sizes. You can hit the impressive jackpot here.

PlayTech has once again confirmed that it is one of the leaders in the online casino software market. It is a great slot with excellent graphics, interesting themes, amazing animation, an amazing selection of game features and lots of other advantages. But the level of refund to the player is very low and this is the only significant drawback of the slot.
