Copy Cats has been designed as a slot machine that uses as heroes a band of alley cats, funny looking creatures that were designed in an attractive cartoon style, which could be at home at any of the major movie studios. The creator of this design is NetEnt, so the quality of the design shouldn’t come as a surprise.
In Copy Cats, the 5 reels are getting 25 active lines. The player will be able to win prizes of up to $1,000, which seem to be somewhat low at a quick first glance, but the RTP stays at a pretty high level. The features should have a lot to do with that, involving stacked wilds, scatters, free spins and the interesting Copy Cats feature.
Betting and Prizes
A lot of games will keep the number of lines fixed, and that’s what NetEnt does as well here. You can use 25 coins and lines for each round, but you can increase only the number of coins. You can have up to 10 coins for a single line, while denominations get from $0.01 to $0.50. The highest line bet is $5, while the total can be taken to $125. The smallest wager is set to just $0.25.
When you’re looking at the game’s rewards, it will be a regular symbol that offers the highest amount. 200x your line bet is offered through that combo, and with the highest wager set you can get up to $1,000 from it. Luckily, the features of the slot are powerful enough that the RTP is at a reasonably high value, of 96.76%, so the game is definitely worth checking out.
Copy Cats Slot Features
As for the features, I suggest you check out the Copy Cats feature first, since that’s the one that is different from most games. You get a total of four cats in this game, one of which is the wild and shows only the tail and a few extremities of the golden cat. The other three have cats colored in blue, pink or red. Should you get a complete stack of one of these cats to appear and cover the 1st reel, then the Copy Cats will trigger. All the symbols with cats from the other four reels will transform at that point, becoming the cat that is shown on reel 1. With the cats being the game’s highest paying symbols, this can bring you a lot of big wins.
A cat’s collar and bell is going to serve as a scatter here, present on the reels 1, 3 and 5. The game triggers 10 free spins when they’re all visible. An extra 10 free spins may be activated by the game in the same way, as you’re using up your initial batch.
I mentioned before the wild symbol, the one showing a golden cat. That’s the symbol that you will be able to use stacked and which can act as a substitute at the same time. A full stack of wilds on reel 1 triggers the Copy Cats feature and transforms the other cat symbols on the screen into extra wilds, which is the most helpful role that this symbol can play. Cats are symbols which can replace all other regular symbols, but not the ones triggering the free spins.
Theme & Design
This being a slot machine about alley cats, you’re going to be shown the city that they live in, in the background. The quality of the graphics is very high. Four of the game’s symbols give you cats of different colors, some cute, others angry. The rest of the symbols will give you toy mice, milk bottles, fish skeletons and paw prints offered in four different colors.
Copy Cats has its unique sides, and it’s worth exploring for that alone, but luckily you also have a decent average RTP to look forward to.
