Introduction: Kittens and Dollars

Even though Cats & Cash has been released since 2012, we were unable to locate any noteworthy victories when researching the game. Even though a 5,000x jackpot is touted for this slot machine, we think it’s highly unlikely that anybody has ever won even 1,000x.

Cats & Cash is a slot machine game that has 5 reels, 3 rows, up to 15 paylines, with an RTP of 96.07%. Bets may be placed from €0.01 and €75, with a maximum of 5 coins per line. Two hip disco cats serve as hosts for this throwback television game show. The transition from Flash to HTML5 and the accompanying visual improvements are the only noticeable changes, yet the cats continue to seem outmoded and awkward.

Cats and Dollar Signs

Gold bars are the most valued symbol on the reels, paying out 166x for 5 in a row, followed by diamond necklaces, bankrolls, cool cats, pussy kittens (?), luxury cats, and nerdy cats. There is also a scatter symbol that does not activate any bonuses but pays out wins regardless of where they land on the reels (up to 666x for 5 oak), and a wild symbol that doubles all wins. There is a 400x payout for 5 scatter symbols.

Plenty of Bonus symbols crowd the reels, sometimes leading to one of two bonus games but more often than not merely getting in the way of payouts.

The Great Cats & Money Fortune Game

The Wheel of Fortune bonus is activated when three or more bonus wheel symbols appear on any active line, reading from left to right. The wheel is spun and if it falls on an orange section with stars, a reward is granted and a respin takes place for an extra prize. Play’n GO offers a 5000x max win in this feature, however we remain suspicious about this claim.

Play’n GO claims that this maximum victory has been tested and approved, therefore it is theoretically achievable. We just can’t see any other way that could happen unless the wheel is permitted to respin indefinitely or the maximum win is shown as a multiplier value instead of coin value.

Lucky Draw for Cats and Money

The Pick-a-Gift bonus round is activated when three or more gift box symbols appear on any active line from left to right. It’s a choosing bonus like you’ve seen a thousand times before, but with a twist reminiscent of game show formats. By clicking on the boxes one at a time or by hitting the “reveal all” button, players may see what other people have won and then find out what’s in their own gift box. According to Play’n GO, the maximum payout for this feature is 2000x.

Results for Cats and Money

A player who won the 5000x max win on a 1 line setting submitted us the screenshot shown below, establishing Cats & Cash as a medium to high volatility slot with a 5000x max win possibility in the Wheel of Fortune bonus and a 2000x max win potential in the Pick-a-Gift feature.

Despite its obvious potential, we’re not great lovers of this game and would much rather play the tried-and-true 243-payline cat slot, Pretty Kitty, from Microgaming.
