Cat lovers, this is for you. Games Global partner Snowborn Games’ online slot Cat Clans 2 Mad Cats is a sequel to the first Cat Clans slot published around a year and a half earlier. Other titles included Cats of the Caribbean, which was a single title with cats. Some major thematic and gameplay modifications occurred during the downtime. Cat Clans’ lovely cats are returning, along with some classic and fresh features.
Snowborn Games has abandoned Cat Clans’ mediaeval motif for phase 2. Instead, Cat Clans 2 Mad Cats has a dystopian but not-too-distant future atmosphere where everything’s gone wrong and people, or cats, survive by grouping together and battling for resources. The rocky, dusty, detritus-covered scene is far from the Highlands of the last game. No complaints, though. Always good when a designer comes up with a sequel concept and runs with it.
The reel set-up stays the same, featuring a 5-reel, 3-row matrix with 20 paylines for normal line winnings. The highest of four RTP settings, 96%, makes the game risky and possibly win at 29.57%. Players can pick from 20 p/c to £/€25 and buy 1 of 3 extra buys.
Starting from the left side of the grid, winning combos have 3 to 5 matching symbols. From bottom to top, we see diamonds, spades, clubs, hearts, cat food, fuel, and 4 cat emblems. Getting 5 non-cat symbols on a successful line pays 1.25 to 5 times the stake, or 10 to 12.5 times for 5 cats. All reels include wild grenades. For a 5 wild win, they pay 111x the bet or can replace any normal pay symbol. Random multipliers apply to wilds. Base game values are x1 to x5, Furry Spins values may be x1 to x10.
Cat Clans 2 Mad Cats Slot Features
Other features in Cat Clans 2 Mad Cats include a Mystery Box, Cash Prize, Mad Respins, Furry Spins, and Bonus Buy.
Cash Prizes, Myseyer Box
Mystery Box symbols will disclose any random symbol except the scatter. Cash Prize symbols immediately give 0.2 to 50 times the stake.
Paw overlay symbols randomly trigger Mad Respins when being accumulated. The only allowed landings are Mystery Boxes or blanks. A fresh Mystery Box prompts a respin, and the feature terminates when none land. The Mystery Boxes open to reveal a random symbol. Count and award all values if the symbol is a Cash Prize.
Landing 3, 4, or 5 scatter symbols awards 1.5, 3, or 9 times the wager and 3, 4, or 5 free spins. Wilds reset Furry Spins to the initial number. Sticky wilds stay on reels until the feature finishes. Random wild multipliers increase by +1 on free spins. The round ends when no wilds appear and no free spins remain.
The Feature Shop sells 3, 4, or 5 Furry Spins for 50, 80, or 200 times the stake. Furry Spins follows the same rules as natural triggers.
Cat Clans 2 Mad Cats Slot Review
While Cat Clans 2 Mad Cats’ motif altered drastically, its gameplay was divided. That is, part of it is familiar and some has been added or removed. In general, change is beneficial, since Cat Clans 2 Mad Cats gives a new experience while maintaining ties to the past, improving the series if Snowborn Games continues it.
Positive adjustments include increasing Furry Spins limitations. Whether the bonus activated spontaneously or was bought from the store, the Cat-a-pult Free Spins round previously gave players 3 spins. Cat Clans 2 Mad Cats adds 4 or 5 free spins. This hasn’t boosted the winning potential, which remains at 20,000x the wager, but few would complain about more spins, thus a new dimension is added. A good one. The old Clan Battle Bonus, where the cat symbol wins the most prizes, has been replaced with Cash Prizes and Mad Respin. The Mad Respins are amusing and evocative of Money Train 3’s respin function, but hardly groundbreaking.
Players who like Cat Clans should enjoy Cat Clans 2 Mad Cats too. Along with the major theme shift, Snowborn Games has tweaked the aesthetics and gameplay enough to give Cat Clans 2 Mad Cats its own furry personality.
