In the world of online slot games, there is no shortage of slots with an Oriental feel to them. Another such slot game which is set in the mysterious far eastern continent is Astro Cat. This game is one of the best slot games from developers Lightning Box, and it stands out from most others you will see online today. The slot is a five-reel game which has three rows and 1296 ways to win, and no standard paylines. However, when you look at the reels, you can see that there is far more to it than that thanks to the 4×4 middle reel, the Reelfecta reel.
The Reelfecta reel is what makes the Astro Cat slot game stand out from normal slot games. This middle reel doesn’t just make the reel structure look different, with a giant grid of 16 symbols in the middle; it also might help to create more winning combinations. How it works, is during the base game players can form winning combinations of symbols using any one of the 16 symbols on the Reelfecta reel, but each symbol can only be used once.
Bursting out the reels is the oriental theme for the slot. The reels themselves sit under a Chinese temple, and most symbols on the reels also have been inspired by the Orient theme. On the reels, you have koi carp, a Frog, a bonsai tree, Chinese fans and a coloured dragon. You also have a Wild Symbol which may prove valuable as you spin. The Astro Cat Wild will only appear reel three (Reelfecta reel) and reel four, however, when it lands it can substitute for most other symbols on the reels to help create winning combinations. It can’t substitute for the scatter symbol.
The scatter symbol on is a fireworks symbol, and this symbol is going to be the symbol needed to trigger the main bonus feature on this slot, the free spins. To trigger the free spins bonus feature, you must land at least five of the scatter fireworks symbol, and you will receive a maximum of twelve free spins. During which all wilds will be frozen in place, and on the Reelfecta reel during each spin, a symbol will become a wild or poison symbol starting from the top left corner and moving clockwise. If the symbol is a wild, it will be frozen in place, and if it becomes a poison symbol, the round will end. Turn the whole of the Reelfecta reel wild, and you will be awarded one mega spin with all sixteen symbols on that reel becoming wild.
On the Astro Cat slot game players will be able to gamble each win they land with the chance to double or quadruple their winnings thanks to the Gamble Feature. Just click the hearts/clubs button below the reels, and you will be able to try double or quadruple your win by guessing the suit or colour of an upturned playing card.
