Brace for an encounter with majestic wild cats on the slot from Big Time Gaming. King of Cats Megaways introduces the PlayerSelect mechanic that will allow reel hunters to choose their preferred predator, the lion or the puma, to act as the wild. Each will award multipliers when they land for bigger wins while also offering up increasing multipliers in their own free spins mode that can lead to wins of up to 56,620 times your bet.
King of Cats Megaways is a cascading video slot featuring the PlayerSelect mechanic with six reels, each with two seven symbols, creating 64 to 117,649 ways to win. Pays are awarded for two to six matching symbols landing on adjacent reels from left to right only. You can go on a reel safari on desktop, tablet or mobile from 0.20 to 10 credits per spin (possibly up to 100 credits in some markets). The game has medium to high volatility with an RTP of 96.70% for the Lion mode and 96.72% for the Puma mode.
A postcard picture-perfect view of the African savanna is opening up when you load the game. The typical Umbrella Thorn Acacia trees and the red earth colours contrast perfectly against a blue sky with scattered fluffy clouds. The scenery changes to a jungle setting when the Puma mode is active. A tribal soundtrack with rythmic drums provides the main audio to the gameplay.
The pay symbols are the BTG regulars, starting at the low end with card royals from 9 through to A, awarding 0.4x to 0.8x your bet for a single six of a kind. They are followed by gems in green, blue, red and purple colours. Hit six across the reels to win 1x to 25x your stake.
The game has two wilds, the Lion and the Puma, both appearing on reels two to five only and substituting for all regular symbols. A gold coin with a paw print acts as the scatter.
King of Cats Megaways Slot Features
If you disregard Bonanza Megapays, we had only two games with the signature BTG game engine leaving their studios in the last 12 months, namely Wheel of Fortune Megaways and Survivor Megaways. Understandably in some way as they licenced the engine to about a dozen developers, leaving the bulk of Megaways releases to the likes of iSoftBet, Blueprint Gaming, Pragmatic Play and others.
King of Cats Megaways has a Final Countdown/Danger! High Voltage/Holy Diver vibe, whilst also introducing the trademarked PlayerSelect mechanic. The game has two modes – Lion and Puma – that determine the type of wild that can appear on reels two to five. You can pick any before every base game spin. Any inactive cat wild landing on a spin of the other will count as a standard wild.
Choosing the Lion will see him randomly grow to a 2×2, 3×3 or 4×4 mega wild symbol every time he lands in a spin. Accordingly, the wild multiplier will be either x4, x9 or x16. Only wins containing the Lion wild will benefit from the multiplier.
In turn, the Puma will expand to full reel height when he appears on any spin, attaching a random multiplier of x2, x3 or x4. Up to three can land in a single spin, potentially leading to a maximum multiplier of x64. Again, the multiplier is applied to winning combinations with Puma wilds only.
With to play modes, it is only natural to see that the game has also two Free Spins modes based on which cat was active on the triggering spin. Each has a separate way to progressively increase the default multipliers from the base game. Both can be retriggered indefinitely with three to six scatters landing on a free spin.
- Lion Mode Free Spins: Three, four, five or six scatters will get you 8, 12, 16 and 20 free spins respectively. The feature starts with x2, x5 and x8 multipliers for the 2×2, 3×3 and 4×4 Lion Wild. Every time the Lion appears on a free spin, the Lion Wild Multipliers will increment by x2, x5 and x8 respectively. A small display at the bottom will keep you informed of what multipliers are currently active.
- Puma Mode Free Spins: Three, four, five or six scatters will get you 15, 18, 21 and 24 free spins respectively. The first time a Puma Wild appears, it will reveal a multiplier of x2, x4 or x6. Any further landing on the same reel on the remaining free spins will increase the possible values by x1, x2 and x3 respectively. Again, keep an eye on the display below the reels for the current max multiplier for each of the four centre reels.
Well, that’s the end of our safari through the African savanna. Overall, King of Cats Megaways looks like a more sophisticated version of Bonanza or Danger! High Voltage but substantially simpler to play than Holy Diver. Nonetheless, it has a superior design quality and a high playability factor. Not to forget, the RTP is in any case outstanding although the win potential seems a tad improbable. It will take massive multipliers and lots of 6OAKs premiums to get even past 5,000x, let alone exceed 50,000x. Time will tell. We sure hope to see the mega win screenshots and videos soon after its release.
