Cat Queen Slot Review
Cat Queen is powered by Playtech software and has 5 reels, 4 rows and 40 paylines. Playable from 40p to £800 a spin, it has an Egyptian theme (like many others). The graphics are not that sharp (as the Marvel slots for example) but it has a proper land-based feel to it (which I like). You will enter the sacred world of the ancient Egyptian Gods with the hope of claiming some of the pyramid’s treasures.
The game uses the new Turbo Mode feature which means that you can spin those reels extremely quickly (great if you play regularly!). You will see the Gods such as Seth, Bastet and Horus as well as the Eye of the Horus, Ankh and the Scarab. Look out for the Pharaoh symbol as it’s the most rewarding. You will also benefit from stacked symbols which can appear on any of the 5 reels.
Look out for the Pyramid scatter symbol as 3 or more appearing simultaneously anywhere on the reels will trigger the Free Games feature and give you 15 free spins. Look out for the Pharaoh symbol as 3 or more will give you 15 more free spins.
Now, this may sound like a standard feature but it can pay extremely handsomely. I managed to get 4 rows of wild symbols on 1 free spin and won just over 500 times my stake. My best outcome to date was a whopping 740 times my stake! Saying that, I’ve won 10 to 20 times my stake on most occasions meaning that Cat Queen is a high variance slot.
The aim of the game is to get a payout for one or more combinations formed on the active lines after stopping the drums. They are a continuous chain of identical pictures, which should start with the first reel on the left. Only the oldest combination is considered winning for each line.
The payout is calculated on two values: the line bet and the coefficient of combination (up to x1000). They are multiplied. Some symbols work a little differently. Read about them in the next section.
In the game of chance, you can try to increase the winnings. It is allowed to put on the stake its entire amount or half of the money. You will see one open card and four closed cards. You will need to open one of the cards at random, lying face down. If it turns out to be higher than the dealer’s card, the payout is doubled. In one round you can play several times in a row until you reach a set maximum. There is no right to make a mistake.
The Cat Tzarina video slot theoretically returns 93.6% to the player.
Online slot Cat Queen: Wild, Scatter symbols
The drums of the slot machine pictures typical of models on the Egyptian theme. You will see symbols of cats, scarabs, falcons, the eye of Ra and so on. The special elements are Wild (the queen) and Scatter (the pyramid). They have special features.
Wild not only forms combinations that are paid at high multipliers, but also replaces the other ordinary pictures, if necessary.
Scatter does not depend on the active lines. Three, four or five of these symbols rolled simultaneously in any position on the screen, give a payout of five, ten or fifty total bets.
Then begins a round of free spins. It involves the same bet and number of lines as in the previous run, but the player does not spend any money. These spins can be extended.
