Technical Characteristics

Astro Cat is a 8 reel and 4 rows slot machine that is powered by Lightning Box Games.

The slot machine enjoys a unique set up of ‘all-ways’ system, thus giving you more ways to win and land a winning combination on your reels. Astro Cat’s layout is that of 8 reels with reels 1,2,7 and 8 all enjoying 3 rows of symbols, whilst the middle 4 reels all have 4 rows full of symbols. The twist comes along with how the wins are intertwined to give you better results and wins. Should you manage to land symbols on reels 1, 2,7 and 8, and any matching symbol on the middle 4 reels, you will walk away with a 5 of a kind combo. (5 of a kind is the maximum combo you can land). If you land 6 of a kind, you will walk away with a winning combination of 5x2 as opposed to a 6 of a kind win.

Your betting starts at 0.01 and goes up to a solid 50.00 per spin. Of course you are asked to choose your wager at the start of every spin, whilst using the auto play will see you playing with a standard pre-set wager amount.

The slot machine has a Chinese theme feel with the Astro Cat, our main character looking like a good luck cat, the ones we see in souvenir shops and have waving hands. Of course in a very Chinese New year fashion, other symbols that compose the game are Chinese dragons, frogs, firecrackers, bonsai trees, golden carps and also the 10 through to K playing card symbols being the lowest paying symbols throughout your game-play. You can enjoy playing the game either online via desktop, or via all mobile devices including tablets and phones.

Bonuses and Rewards

When it comes to bonuses and rewards, Astro Cat is a slot machine that pays well, especially since it enjoys 1,296 ways to win.

Let us start talking about the very popular free spins that this slot machine offers. Landing 3 or more free spin symbols will see you scoop up 12 free spins but if you are in luck you will walk away with the 13th spin that is the ‘Mega Spin’, that will see you walk away with some major prizes. Once you start spinning the reels for your free spins round, the cat wild symbols appear clockwise around the grid of your middle reels and stay in place for each spin. Your main goal here is to get 12 spins in place without hitting the poison bottle symbol. Should you be unlucky enough to hit this bottle, you get a 2x multiplier added to your winnings with the bonus round ending soon after. On the other hand, if you manage to land all the 12 cats, you will be awarded an additional prize that is the 13th spin entitled the ‘Mega Spin’. Now this is where things get interesting, as the giant Chinese cat will take up the middle 4 places in the middle reels, turning all the middle columns as wilds, thus allowing you to potentially win big wins. This is the way that you can land the 1,296 ways to win. Good luck!

Astro Cat will also give you big wins once you land the scatter symbol that is represented by the firecracker. Just keep in mind that the firecracker will only appear on the outside of your 4x4 grid at the middle of the reels. Should you manage to land 9+ firecrackers on your reels, you will walk away with a good 25000 coins, 8 symbols will give you 1250 coins whilst 5 will award you 50 coins.

And finally, let us talk about the various colourful symbols that compose this game and their paying amounts. Look out for the highest paying symbol that is represented by the flamboyant Chinese Dragon and will award you 250 coins should you manage to land 5 of a kind on an active pay line. The frog takes second place with promises of awarding you 150 for landing 5 symbols, whilst landing 5 golden carps will see you scoop 100 coins. Landing 5 Bonsai Trees will award you 75 coins whilst the lower symbols that will award you lesser amounts are the normal playing card symbols.

Astro Cat is overflowing with bonuses and rewards and although it might seem complicated to manage at first, you will realise that the slot machine is not so complex as it looks. Give the Astro Cat slot machine a spin, you will not regret it!
