Astro Cat is one of the latest games fresh out of the impressive Lightning Box Games studio. Featuring a whopping 8 reels and a mammoth 1,296 ways to win, this Lightning Box title has all the hallmarks of a development team doing things a bit differently which is certainly good news for players bored of playing through the same type of games. With so much packed into this one slot game, boredom is one thing that will never be an issue.
Astro Cat Asian Theme
Astro Cat takes on an Asian theme with a soundtrack to match. Across the 8 reels players can expect to find symbols such as dragons, frogs, bonsai trees, fans and gold fish. There’s a sort of anime approach to proceedings which works well, helping to push the Asian theme even further. The backdrop of the game appears to be a moonlit lake, with the moon as well as boats visible.
The game is available to play across all devices. It is inclusive in the sense that the betting range covers low rollers, high rollers, and everyone in between. With betting starting from as little as 50p per spin and rising to as much as £1,250 per spin, it is the ideal game for most in this regard; with 1,296 ways to win enhancing the attractiveness of the title even more.
On loading Astro Cat players will have noticed the reel layout isn’t what they’re used to seeing, with a total of 8 reels on show. They work in a sort of 3x3x4x4x4x4x3x3 system, with the central 4 reels making up the Reelfacta. Two symbols to watch out for while playing the game are the cat, which is the game’s wild and appears on reels 3 and 4, and the fireworks icon, which appears on the outer reels and is the game’s bonus.
If a player happens to land 5 bonus symbols they will trigger the exciting Free Spins feature; which will see them collect 12 spins to play through. It is important to keep an eye on proceedings as the free spins are played through. This is especially the case as there are extra free spins to be won if a +1 Wild Cat appears. With the opportunity to win a further 12 free spins, while also freezing some wilds in position; it makes for an exciting and interesting feature.
Players can also pick up a Mega Spin which can see some big payouts land. By filling the 12 outer places with Wild Cats, the inner spaces will then become filled; ultimately creating a huge 16-piece wild symbol. A Mega Spin will then be awarded, and this is where the most rewarding prizes can be accesses.
