Fat Cat, in the current version, is a NextGen Gaming release, though originally it was a slot machine provided by WGS. They’ve created out of it a mobile friendly title and they made a number of changes to the paytable, changing some of the rewards and even features, so basically they’ve turned it into one of their own.
Fat Cat offers 20 active lines, which are present on 5x3 reels. The features of this game include free spins, bonus games, wilds, scatters and multipliers. There is a top jackpot of $360,000 that you can get while playing Fat Cat.
Betting and Prizes
Given the 20 lines which are going to be used during every single round, you get to place wagers that start from a minimum value of $0.20. Naturally, at that point the line bet will be at only $0.01. You can do better than that, even reaching a maximum wager of $200 per spin, with $10 for each active line.
Fat Cat is the symbol that gets you the most when it’s forming a combination. Its combo pays up to 6,000 coins, which means that the jackpot is worth at most $60,000. With 3x multipliers applied during the free games, you can boost that jackpot to $180,000, a much more impressive number.
Another figure that I enjoyed seeing was the 96.586% average RTP. It’s a touch above what I’m used to seeing right now in new slot machines, and so this makes the game a pretty good choice.
Fat Cat Slot Features
Fat Cat, a purple feline that’s wearing sunglasses and a tacky gold chain around its neck, is the image that is used to represent the wild feature in the slot. The rewards that are going to come when five of these Fat Cats occupy an active line are the best that the slot can deliver, of up to 6,000 coins. Most times though, these are just going to be used as the wilds. The wild symbol is useful as a substitute, so you’re going to have it participate in any regular combination, provided that it appears in the right position, next to matching symbols. It will not be of any help in combination with Dollar Sign scatters.
Another way to take advantage of the Fat Cat is to have it appear on the reels 1 and 5, at the same time. This results in the triggering of the bonus game. You need to make some picks in this feature, and the result could be a reward of up to 500x your triggering bet, with up to 5x multipliers available to get you there.
The Dollar Sign is the only other feature icon that you can get. It pays just by being in two or more positions somewhere in view, reaching 100x your bet when you have five. To get 10 free spins out of it, you need at least three symbols of this type, appearing from left to right on consecutive reels. For the duration of the free spins, all rewards are going to be tripled in value.
Theme & Design
The theme revolves around a rich cat, so it has the feel of a luxury themed slot in a way, only with cats in the main roles. Besides Fat Cat, there is also his lady friend, plus a Dog Butler. Money bags and various poker cards get you the rest of the symbols. It’s a dated look, so NextGen Gaming didn’t change much there.
Fat Cat can be exciting for a number of reasons, but those are related mostly to payouts and features, definitely not to its graphics.
