Catsino Slot is a 5-reel, max 50-pay line online slot from Rival Gaming. If you've ever used the internet, then you know that in 1998 it was invaded by funny cat videos and hasn't recovered yet. Cats are everywhere across the world wide web these days, so it was inevitable that they would find their way into our online casinos. Not helping with such matters is Rival Gaming, who have made their own attempt at making the purr-fect pussy-fied slot, which they have named Catsino. The feisty felines in this game are suave and sophisticated, and ready to cash in their chips (although – we think – they'd prefer fish) at the blackjack and roulette tables.
The symbols in this game are all cat-related, even down to the playing card values nine through to ace, which have all been given a pussy makeover. The rest of the symbols are fantastic felines and bonus symbols. When it comes to play, you can select your coin size from 0.01 all the way up to 0.25. The number of lines you want in play is selectable too, up to the maximum of all fifty. Finally, you can select the number of coins you want to gamble with for each spin. When you've stopped pussy-footing around and made your decision, your final bet-per-spin is these three values multiplied together. When you're ready to see if you can catch the mouse or beat the house, hit the spin button.
Payout & bonus rounds
The lowest winning payout is for three nines, which will win you four times your line-bet. The cream of the payouts is for five symbols that are stacked with money. That wins you 1,250x your bet-per-line.
A smiling ginger tom is the wild cat in this game, and he substitutes for all symbols aside from the free spins symbol. Some of the wild symbols come with a prize multiplier – 3x in normal pay, 4x in free spins mode, and 7x in the '9 Live Super Round'.
The catsino boss acts as the scatter symbol in this game. In normal play (or 'normay play' as the game actually defines it) if you land three or more free spins symbols anywhere you win nine free spins with a 5x wild multiplier.
During free spins if you land another three scatter symbols anywhere, then you win nine 'Super Round' spins, which awards you a wild with a 7x multiplier.
Rival Gaming have not exactly gone to town on this slot. The graphics are just 'good enough', although there are so many colours on the reels don't be surprised if an extended play session triggers a migraine. The game play is just basic wilds and scatters, with the slight addition of a wild multiplier that increases in value as you trigger and re-trigger free spins. Not exactly the crème de la crème of online slots, but not a dog's dinner of one either.
