Kawaii Kitty Slot
Kawaii Kitty is a 5-reel, fixed 10-pay line online slot from Betsoft. This game is the first release on Betsoft's new Shift platform, which replaces the revolutionary Slots3 platform which has been an undeniable success for the company. We can only hope that Shift will bring even more slotty goodness to the online casino world. It's certainly brought a lot of cute goodness to the online casino world, judging by this initial offering. We did think that here 'Kawaii' was a play on 'Hawaii', but we weren't exactly right – 'Kawaii' (pronounced kah-wa-ee) is Japanese for 'cute'. Kawaii Kitty herself is a large-headed, purple-eyed, white-furred kitty cat with a golden bow. She sits to the right of the playing screen in this game, and does cute cat-like things as the reels spin. Thankfully, she doesn't cough up furballs or lick her own bum.
Lots of aspects of Kawaii Kitty's life are represented as symbols on the reels – her favourite tuna, a bowl of cat treats, her golden bow, a pair of fish, a mouse, a hairbrush and a carton of milk. Although this slot has a fixed number of ten pay lines, all lines pay both left to right and right to left, making twenty in reality. You only need to pay per pay line, though. You can choose your coin size from 0.02 to 1.00, and your bet level from one to ten. To work out your wager per spin, multiply your coin size by your bet level and by ten. When you're ready to get to the nitty-gritty with Kawaii Kitty, hit the spin button.
Payout & bonus rounds
Payouts commence at five coins for three tins of tuna, or three cat bowls. The jackpot in normal play is for five cartons of milk, which will win you two hundred and fifty coins.
During play you may land the 'Wild Yarn' symbol. This symbol only appears on the central three reels, but when it lands it turns the entire reel wild. All wins are calculated and then all non-wild reels are respun once.
All wins can be gambled. You can gamble all of your win, or half of it. You choose whether a spinning coin will land Heads or Tails. If you are correct then your win is doubled and can be collected. Guess wrong and you lose your cash. You can keep gambling for as long as you want.
That's about it for Kawaii Kitty. This has been designed as a simple game for players who prefer simpler slots – that much is clear. If you prefer something a little more thrilling and a lot less cute, then you'll need to go elsewhere. If you enjoy less-challenging slots then we recommend you say "Hi, Pretty!" to Betsoft's Kawaii Kitty.
