Cat Queen Slot Review


In ancient Egyptian civilisation, the cat was afforded a very high status amongst the many gods. Playtech have taken the brave step of developing a slot that celebrates this exalted period for our feline friends in the exciting Cat Queen slot. The eponymous queen of the slot does share many features of her feline friends as you’ll note from the loading screen but what else is there about this slot that will have you purring with satisfaction, or meowing with delight?

The first thing to note is that if you load this 5×4 reel, 40 payline slot up at Bet365 Games then you will find you can play from £0.40 to £800 per spin, making this a game suited to all levels of bankroll. One nice feature of the slot is that you can access Turbo Mode, which speeds up the spins considerably allowing you to play more spins in the same amount of time. This is absolutely ideal if you don’t have much time to play but want to maximise your time playing.

The reels are populated by many symbols some featuring Egyptian gods including Seth, Horus and Bastet, as well as others showing artefacts linked to the era such as the Scarab beetle, the Eye of Horus and the Ankh. During the base game you can have these symbols stacked on the reels, which can mean you can trigger multiple paylines and increases the win potential from the somewhat small 1,000 coin single line jackpot available. However, it is the bonus features in the slot that really take this game on to a new level.

Cat Queen Bonus Features

The first bonus symbol is the Wild and this is the Cat Queen symbol. She can substitute for all other symbols apart from the scatter to award additional winning paylines and in addition, five of the Wilds on a payline will trigger the base game jackpot of 1,000 coins.  Remember too that with the potential for symbols to become super stacked on the reels, you can trigger multiple paylines at once to increase the value of wins.

The main feature of the slot is the Free Spins bonus round, which is landed when you hit three or more of the Pyramid Scatter symbols anywhere across the reels. During this round, you receive 15 free spins. Better still, if you can land three of the Pharoah symbols during the free spins round, you can trigger an additional 15 free spins.

It is this feature which can trigger some of the larger bonuses on the slot as with this being a higher variance game, your wins can come anywhere from just a couple of times your stake, right up to several hundred times your stake, especially if you can retrigger the bonus feature or hit some big paying higher value symbols and Wilds on any particular spin.

Cat Queen is a good example of a simple, higher variance game that offers a good mix of wins and some intriguing big wins possible across multiple paylines, despite a low single line jackpot.


Editor's Review

Cat Queen is an enjoyable 5×4 reel slot that isn’t blessed with too many innovative features, however, the free spins game and the Wild symbols do make the game one of the more lucrative you can play when you hit a decent payout, although that isn’t too frequent with this being a higher variance slot. The graphics are clear and the gameplay relatively simple and with some Egyptian background music to keep you in the mood, this is a slot that offers solid, fun higher variance gaming.
