Cats of the Caribbean – Microgaming
Läs denna artikel på svenska här
Microgaming’s new Cats of the Caribbean is a colourful pirate themed slot where the ships fearless crew consists of cute cartoonish cats! The game is built on 5 reels with 3 rows in each, creating a total of 20 winlines for you in the base game.
It looks like the folks at Snowborn Games are really fond of their cats, as this is now the second cat themed game released by Microgaming and developed by them. You might remember the first game Cat Clans, which was released at the end of last year and where we were adventuring with the Scottish cats? Either way, now the cats are back and this time we are sailing the seas with these cute furballs!
The main feature in the Cats of the Caribbean is the Wild Cannon, and lot of the game resolves around that. The Cannonball Wild symbol works like you would expect it to work; replacing any other symbol on a winline to help you create wins. However, all the Cannonball Wild symbols which land on your reels are always also collected and stored on the Wild Box seen on the left side of your reels. These are reserved for the Wild Cannon feature, which can randomly trigger on any spin and blast 2-15 collected Wilds from the box back into your reels. If any of these Cannon shot Wilds happen to land on top of a Wild that sits already on your reels, it will increase the win multiplier for that Wild with 1x instead.
There is also a Free Spin feature in the game, or actually three different versions of it. You need to land three Scatter symbols on your reels to activate the feature and these can only land on reels 1, 3 and 5. The final Scatter landing on your last reel will also determine which version of the Free Spin feature will be activated. Here are all the different options;
Captain Claw: Gives 10 free spins with 25 guaranteed Wilds in the Wild box
Captain Catnip: Gives 12 free spins with 40 guaranteed Wilds in the Wild box
Captain Red: Gives 15 free spins with 90 guaranteed Wilds in the Wild box
During the Free Spin feature one extra row is added to your reels, increasing the number of your winlines up to 30. The Wild Cannon feature will be triggered on every spin during the free spins, shooting and using the guaranteed Wilds from your Wild box that you started the feature with. Other than that the Free Spin feature works exactly like the base game.
Finally there is also four different static Jackpots which can be won by triggering the Cats Pot Bonus Wheel feature. This is your regular fortune wheel -type of bonus and always results in winning one of the four jackpots; Mini Jackpot for 20x of your stake win, Midi Jackpot for 50x, Major Jackpot for 500x and finally the Mega Jackpot for a whopping 10,000x your stake win – which is also the maximum win you can get with one spin in this game.
Overall we enjoyed this game a lot, even though there isn’t really anything unique only to this game. All of its features like the random wilds, wild multipliers and static jackpots we have already seen in some other games in some kind of format. But here it is all tied into solid and charming package that just works well and is fun to play. Try it out yourself at Chanz.com!
