The Exotic Cats slot logo serves as the Wild symbol, replacing other icons (except the scatter) and bringing you a win of up to $440 for a combo of 5 icons if you’ve maxed out your stake. The scatter is a large golden disc with a bright “Scatter” inscription. In addition to triggering a bonus round, scatters deliver a win of $300 or $600 for 4 or 5 icons across the reels. These numbers are multiplied by the player’s total wager for the spin.
Bonuses of Exotic Cats Slot
The extras of the Exotic Cats slot include free spins and the original Vertical Wilds bonus.
Each of the five feline characters has its own reel to protect. Starting from the leftmost, they are: Lion, Tiger, Panther, Leopard, Cougar. The Vertical Wilds is activated when, for instance, the Lion’s reel delivers an icon of a lion. The guardian animal will show up in all its glory and smash the reel with its mighty paw. This stretches the icon across all three rows, giving you an opportunity for even more winning combinations.
This bonus feature can also come into action during the free spins. In theory, you can achieve tremendous wins if every reel delivers an image of its guardian animal and turns wild.
You get a reward of 10 free spins whenever you spot 3, 4 or 5 Scatter symbols in any position on any reels in the base game of the Exotic Cats slot. Your bet is frozen for the duration of the round. If you notice 3-5 scatters during the free spins, your opportunity to win without spending a penny is expanded by another 5 spins.
