In recent years it seems that cats have taken over the world – well, the online world! Head to any social media site and it would almost be amazing if there wasn’t a cat video somewhere on your feed. Now cats have taken over the online casino world, with their very own pokie. In some ways, this NetEnt game could be compared to the ‘Top Cat’ animated series (it certainly seems that this was inspired by the show), featuring four different coloured animated cats, each with their own distinct characters – one cheeky, one a princess, one grumpy and the other a cute kitten.
Copy Cats is a fun, action-filled pokie, which is designed to offer those occasional huge wins. Look out for the cat replicating across the reels. Here’s a look at the key highlights of this medium variance online slot:
Each of the four cat symbols (three standard symbols and a wild) are stacked. Things get very interesting when one of the cats fills reel one in its entirety. This kicks off the Copy Cats feature.
Now any other cat symbol aside from those on reel one will convert to the same symbol that fills reels one. This will often lead to the situation where much of the reels is filled by that same symbol. Giving you potential for big wins across many of the 25 win-lines.
The bonus symbol in this lively pokie features a close up of the bell on a cat collar. This symbol appears on reels 1, 3 and 5 and landing it on all three reels will activate the free spins bonus feature. You’ll be awarded 10 free spins in total, and throughout this feature the wilds are much more likely to fill reel one. This makes the free spins real interesting as the Copy Cat feature comes into play and you might find that wilds fill the reels on a regular basis.
Any time you land three more bonus symbols during the free spins, the feature is retriggered, adding 10 more spins to the existing total.
A golden kitten will be a welcome sight on the reels of Copy Cats. This acts as the wild symbol. The cute cat will substitute for any other symbol in the game and can be stacked on all five reels. It can trigger the Copy Cat on-reel feature too.
The three other cats are the highest paying symbols in the game. The red cheeky looking feline pays 200 coins, the doe-eyed pink princess cat pays 150 coins and the grumpy looking blue cat has a top prize of 100 coins. The other standard symbols are the wind-up mouse, the milk bottle and the fish bones, while four different coloured cat paws complete the lower end of the pay table.
Copy Cats is a five-reel pokie featuring a total of 25 win-lines, while an autoplay option allows you to set the slot in motion for up to an incredible 1,000 spins.
This NetEnt designed pokie features a modern town scene as the backdrop, with tops of houses featuring aerials and satellite dishes. The cats inhabit this world and the alleyways below, once again giving the feel of the famous Top Cat series (you half expect Top Cat to appear). The animated design of the game gives it a fun feel. The cat symbols come to life in short, though endearing animations whenever you land a win. The jazz-like entertaining soundtrack adds to the overall madcap atmosphere.
Copy Cats is one of those pokies that is just perfect for those feel good pokie sessions. The visuals and animation are guaranteed to place a smile on your face, while the game play matches up. The Copy Cat feature is a good one which can lead to a big win very quickly, especially when that wild symbol fills the first reel. Enter the free spins feature and those wilds will be everywhere, pretty much ensuring a high paying feature. NetEnt have come up with a game that you can really get your claws into!
