There's no denying that you can find some pretty incredible animals in the wild, and Microgaming has put together a number of games that showcase these wonderful creatures. Their Exotic Cats slot is another that goes along these lines, and it has great graphics with five different beautiful, large cats on the reels.
On the gameplay side of the equation, this title has a low-medium volatility with a pretty high hit-rate. The feature set does operate in a way that adds some volatility to the situation, but it's not a huge amount, so we feel like this title will be a good fit for a lot of players as long as you're not looking for a super-high volatility experience.
Players will have five reels and three horizontal rows that stretch out in front of a lush jungle landscape. Something could jump out at you at any time, so it makes sense that they used the 243-ways format here. That means that, instead of traditional paylines, you can win with any combination of matching symbols from left to right on the reels regardless of the positions where those symbols fall.
You'll have betting set up around 15 coins per turn in this game, and you can multiply that by a factor of as much as 10 to help you get your total bet size to the level that you want. Coins can also be set from a minimum of $0.01 up to a maximum of $0.20, which puts the lowest bet size at $0.15. For the purposes of describing the payouts, we'll assume a wager of $1.20 since all wins are multiples of the amount you're betting.
Cat Symbol Function and Payouts
The most important grouping of symbols for the gameplay of this title includes the five huge cats. You'll see a lion, a tiger, a leopard, a panther and a cougar in this title. All that's missing is a jaguar. What's critical to understand is that they have two separate functions.
On the one hand, they all give you some pretty solid payouts. In fact, they all tie for having the second-largest non-scatter prizes in the whole game. Five of a kind of one of these gets you a 12x win, and it drops to 2x for four of a kind or 1.2x for three. Even a combination of just two of a kind is worth $0.40 for this title.
On the other hand, they have an opportunity to turn into expanding wild symbols depending on which reels they show up on. The lion owns the first reel, and the tiger sits on the second. The panther has the third, and the fourth and fifth belong to the leopard and cougar, respectively. While the symbols all appear on all five reels, if a cat appears on its own respective reel as listed above, it turns into an expanding wild symbol.
Scatters and Free Spins Bonus Round
There's a gold medallion symbol in this title that has a type of mystical cat on it. While it's not clear what type of cat it might be, what is clear is that there are some solid wins that can be had with it. Four of a kind earns 12x, and five of a kind gets you 24x. Note that there is no three of a kind scatter win in this title.
Players who are able to pick up at least three of this symbol anywhere on the game board will be awarded a set of 10 free spins. Re-triggering adds five more free turns with no limit.
Wild and Other Payouts
The wild wins are very strong in this game, and they're made even more impressive by the expanding wild cat symbols that we detailed above. Five of a kind gives players a 17.6x prize, and you'll make it 9.6x when four of this symbol appears from left to right on the game board. Lining up three of a kind or two of a kind will award you with wins of 1.6x and 0.48x, respectively, as well.
The woman with the dark hair out in the jungle pays 4x for five of a kind, and that's the same win that players will get for five of the paw print. However, one difference between those two mid-level symbols is that the lady pays for two of a kind or more, and the paw print requires at least three.
Things drop down from there to the card suit symbols, which are made to look like gorgeous gems. The red heart pays 3.2x, and that's the same win for five of the purple spade. The 2.4x payout is the lowest in the game, and it's awarded for five of a kind combinations of the blue diamond or green club.
Gameplay is the main focus of the Exotic Cats slot, particularly with the mechanic for the expanding wilds symbol. Outside of that, there's nothing that really stands out all that much for this title, but it does have reasonable gameplay with a fairly high hit-rate. The graphics are solid, but the feature set isn't really as good as it could have been.
