The 5×3 reel set product and a 243 ways to win slot is quite simple to play. With the grid frame set deep into a tropical jungle, Exotic Cats boats a patterned feline offering with lions, tigers, panthers, leopards and cougars as the high-valued symbols. There’s also a selection of low-denomination gem-styled card suit symbols which are a nice complement to the list.
Microgaming made sure to also find place for a girl symbol in there as well, although we’re not sure who she represents exactly. Additionally, a tiger footprint symbol and Wild + Scatter logos are all you will fin landing on the reels.
In order to land a win in the Exotic Cats slot, players will need to match symbols – at least two of them when it comes to high-value symbols or three for the lower denominations – from leftmost to right. Scatters will also award a coin win but only when you land four or five of those on the reels.
Before hitting the spin button, the players are advised to select their bet value and choose the spin cost. All of the game settings are neatly places and easily accessed below the playing grid whereas the toggle bar on the left side of the screen will take you to more game settings and the paytable.
When it comes to game features themselves, it’s fair to say Exotic Cats is not the most action-packed Microgaming’s product. It comes with only two features – none of which are so special honestly – but still offers plenty of fun for all animal lovers.
Vertical Wilds Feature – Once you’ve launched the playing screen, you will notice that every single reel in this game has an animal assigned to it. Five different animals for five different reels will mean that, once you’ve landed a cat on the corresponding reel, a Vertical Wild feature will be activated. This feature is all about turning entire reels Wild for maximum winning potential. The Wild pattern is as follows:
There is a great visual appeal to the Vertical Wilds feature as corresponding cats will pop out of the screen so don’t be frightened. And to finish it off – yes, it is possible to turn all five reels wild at once.
Free Spins – as always, this feature is all about landing three or more Scatters anywhere in sight. Exotic Cats slot will reward you with 10 Free Spins during which 3 extra Scatters will give you another batch of 5 complimentary spins. Don’t forget, four and five Scatters on the reels will not only activate the feature but also bring a coin win which will be then added to betway wins. Cool, right?
And while most of the game developers are often even going over the top with sophisticated gameplays, cinematic visuals and highly-demanding – gamified even – scenarios, Microgaming decided to keep it plain and simple with their Exotic Cats slot.
This 5 reel and 243 ways to wins product is rather straightforward with its two special features – Vertical Wilds and Free Spins. The newest generation of players will certainly find it insufficient but their minds can still be turned thanks to the fact that Exotic Cats hides a 106,000 coin kitty deep inside the jungle.
With an RTP of 96.33% and a medium variance gameplay, Microgaming made sure that players are frequently rewarded. Those prizes might not be the most whopping ones but would nevertheless be big enough to keep you occupied until you’ve fallen in love with the jungle beat.
