Fat cat is a term used to describe wealthy people in business and/or politics. And WGS has given this term a more-literal meaning with Fat Cat slots
, which revolves around a very rich feline.
This 5-reel, 20-payline game puts a fun twist on the concept through a gold-chain-wearing male cat, glamorous female cat, and dog butler. Obviously the theme sounds entertaining, but how does this slot compare to other games? Find out as we look at Fat Cat slots' symbols, theme, betting options, and special features.
Symbols and Theme
This game features a strange background that includes blue sky, bags of money, gold coins, and a checkered floor. We like the checkered floor because it looks like what you'd see in a lavish mansion, and the bags of money make sense. But we don't understand why the entire game doesn't take place in a mansion, rather than outdoors.
Symbols include: Fat Cat (wild), Kitty Cat, Butler, riches, moneybag, dollar sign (scatter), A, K, Q, J, 10, and 9.
The dog not only substitutes to form winning payouts, but also pays the most when making wins himself. He offers 5,000 coins for 5 symbols, 1,000 for 4 symbols, 250 for 3 symbols, 10 for 2, and 2 for 1. Kitty Cat also pays well, delivering 2,000 coins for 5 symbols, 500 for 4 symbols, 100 for 3, and 5 for 2.
One thing that we like about this game is the animations during winning payouts, including Fat Cat waiving cash around, the dollar sign gleaming, and other symbols flashing.
You can change paylines from 1-20 using either the buttons on each side of the reels, or arrows at the bottom of the screen. You can also adjust coin size from $0.01 to $5.00, allowing you to play all 20 lines for just $0.20.
Other options include Bet Max (quickly play all 20 lines) and Autoplay (spin reels automatically).
Fat Cat Slots Special Features and Bonuses
The dollar sign offers scatter payouts that are multiplied by your triggering bet. These include 100x (5 symbols), 10x (4 symbols), 5x (3 symbols), or 1x (2 symbols) your total wager.
The dollar sign also triggers a bonus round when appearing 3 or more times anywhere on the reels. The bonus shows 8 dollar signs, and you pick among the signs to reveal cash prizes worth up to 1,000x your bet.
Final Thoughts on Fat Cat Slots
Fat Cat combines an entertaining theme with good slots elements to make it worth giving a try. Our favorite aspects include the characters, animations, and two bonus features. We like how Fat Cat, Kitty Cat, and Butler (dog) combine to tell the story of a millionaire feline.
One thing that we'd change about this slot is the sky part of the background since it doesn't match the theme. Also, the graphics are merely adequate when compared to most 5-reel slots. But these downsides aren't enough to keep Fat Cat from being a fun game.
