Loading the game will take you to the Mesoamerican jungle with an Aztec temple in the background of the translucent game window. The sun stands high on the horizon in the base game whereas triggering the free spins will be the start of the solar eclipse, the period where the moon covers the sun. A tribal soundtrack is replaced by the thumping noises of the cascading symbol blocks and the removal of winning combinations whenever the reels are in action.
The pay symbols start at the low end with crafted card royals from 10 through to A, awarding 1.25x to 3x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are followed by an ancient sun clock, a key adorned with a red gem, a human skull and Cat herself. Hit five on a line to win 6x to 37.5x your stake. An intricate icon depicting the sun god is the wild, substituting for all regular symbols and yielding 50x your bet for five. The Moon Goddess acts as the scatter. Her icon will change from silver to gold in the free spins where it will take up a dual role as scatter and wild.
Cat Wilde and the Eclipse of the Sun God Slot Features
The third chapter in the Cat Wilde franchise is very different from her first reel outings in format and location. Seasoned players will have a deja-vu the soon they loaded the game and completed the first spins as the game has striking similarities to NetEnt’s blockbuster slot Gonzo’s Quest. Nevertheless, there are also some significant differences that are separating it from the original. Reason enough to take a closer look.
The cascading symbol mechanic is core to the gameplay in both the base game and free spins. At the start of a spin sequence, 15 symbols will drop onto the grid to potentially form winning combinations. Any combo will see the respective icons shatter and disappear to make room for new symbols to cascade into place. Score another winner and the process is repeated up to the moment were no new wins occur after a fresh cascade.
Simultaneously, a win multiplier increases progressively with each winning cascade from the default x1 to x2, x4, x6 and ultimately to x10 (replaced by higher values during the free spins feature). The progress bar in the top left corner (desktop) will show the active multiplier. It will reset to the default once a spin sequence concludes.
Landing Moon Goddess scatters on reels one, three and five will trigger 10 Free Spins. The round starts with x1, x2, x4, x6, x10 multipliers which can be repeatedly upgraded through retriggers. The multiplier will always reset to the default between spins while the x70 placed on top will be activated on the final level only. For the upgrade, keep an eye on the Moon Goddess scatters as they will be collected in a separate meter in the top right corner (desktop). They will also act in a dual function as scatters and wilds for the duration of the bonus feature. For every five collected scatters, the game awards +5 free spins, up to a maximum of 40 in total. Plus, the multipliers will be upgraded progressively with every retrigger.
- 5 Moon Goddess Scatters collected: Multipliers increase to x2, x4, x8, x12 and x20
- 10 Moon Goddess Scatters collected: Multipliers increase to x3, x6, x12, x18 and x30
- 15 Moon Goddess Scatters collected: Multipliers increase to x4, x8, x16, x24 and x40
- 20 Moon Goddess Scatters collected: Multipliers increase to x5, x10, x20, x30 and x50

Cat Wilde and the Eclipse of the Sun God is another fine addition to the Play’n GO franchise that centres around the explorer Rich Wilde and his intrepid daughter who is just as eager to embark on her own exhilarating reel adventures. Putting the similarities to Gonzo’s Quest aside, the game is highly playable with ample win potential in the base game and free spins.
