Astro Cat: Too Complicated For Its Own Good?

More than just being fluffy and charming critters, cats represent good fortune in Japanese culture. In fact, you might come across Maneki Neko or Japanese fortune cats on your favorite Japanese bistros or any Japanese-related places. Lightning Box Games brings Maneki Neko’s good luck charm on the world of online video slots. Can this game bring you more luck than you could ever imagine? Find out in this Astro Cat review.

Graphics and Sounds

With Maneki Neko cat or the Japanese lucky cat symbol as the main character, Astro Cat slots will take you to the Land of the Rising Sun’s serene setting. The colorful game is backdropped either by a calm river bathing under the star-lit sky or by bright paper lanterns.  Apart from Maneki Neko, the game features other Oriental-themed symbols like Carps, Bonsais, Lucky Frogs, Fireworks, and more.

Lightning Box made every spin come to life with quirky animations. Expect fireworks exploding anywhere on the reels, gold coins showering your screens, and Maneki Neko flying across the reels. Meanwhile, a mixture of modern upbeat music and traditional Asian melody plays cheerfully on the background as you spin.

Gameplay

Astro Cat’s layout is quite unusual. Instead of the usual paylines, Astro Cat features 1,296 ways to win. That being said, wins are formed each time you match symbols on adjacent reels. The game functions like a standard five-reel, three-row slot. But thanks to the Reelfecta feature, the third reel is comprised of 16 individual symbols that can be used only once per winning combo.

Before you can hit a winning combo, you have to place your bets first. You can bet as low as 0.50 coins or go for the maximum stake of 500 coins per spin. Then, spin the reels or activate the Autoplay feature to begin playing. It is also worth knowing that Astro Cat features a theoretical RTP rate of 95.44%.

Bonuses and Special Features

On top of the rewards you will get from winning combos during the base game, Astro Cat keeps the fun rolling with extra rewards up for grabs. Below are the bonuses and special features in the game:

Wild Symbol

The Lucky Cat symbol is the Wild icon of the game. It appears only on reels 3 and 4 and substitutes for all the symbols on the reels, except for the Bonus symbol.

Free Spins Symbol

Fireworks represent the game’s Scatter symbol that appears only on the outer reels of the Reelfecta reels. Landing five or more Firework symbols activates the Free Spins round, which gives up to 12 free spins.

During a free spins-round, a +1 Wild Cat or Poison symbol will appear on a specific reel inside the Reelfecta reel. If a +1 Wild Cat appears, you will get 12 free spins with the Wilds becoming Sticky. Compile all these Wild Cat symbols and you will have a giant 16-symbol Wild.

But keep your guard up to Poison symbols. Once these symbols appear the free spins round will end and you will get two times the amount of your stake.

Gamble Feature

If you wish to double or quadruple your wins, activate the gamble feature simply by clicking the Spade and Heart button beside the spin bar. You will have to play a card-guessing game in which picking the right color and suit of a certain slot will award you with 2x or 4x multipliers, respectively. Note that the mini-game allows you to guess the cards up to five times.

Activating all of these features might require you a little bit of luck and some lucky charms. But the good thing is these bonuses and special symbols can bolster your bankroll to multiple folds.
